      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Mille Lacs in the fall

Needless to say come September I usually put away the boat and get my tree stand out for bow season. However I have heard stories about the eye's in the fall on Mile Lacs. My dad seems to think this would be worth a try.

Can any one shed some validity on this and provide a fellow with some spots and tatics for fall eye's.

The fall bite on Mille Lacs is one of the best of the year and something I look forward to every open water season. I typically focus on the night time trolling but there are several opportunities to catch fish during the day as well. Shoot me an e-mail at info@tightlinesguiding.com for some more information.

I'm going to give it a try Sunday.

Starting the middle of September it's twice a week until I'm tired of it or freeze up. Whichever happens first.

Hey guys I am getting all my ready to go. I have a couple of question. Last fall we tried around indian and shermans point on the west side. We didn't have much luck. I guess my question is what kind of bottom are the walleyes relating to this time of year sand,rock,gravel,weed lines mud. Also where would be a good place time to start this time of year. I think we have the right presentatrion just wrong structure or location. My last question is for any musky hunters out there. Wheres a good place to start looking for these monsters this time of year, would really like to hook into one at night I think it would be wild.

Thanks for helping a rookie guys.

It normally starts now. I think any wind blown rock piles will have the fish and a simple bobber/leech or bobber/minnow works. laugh.gif

Pretty nice looking moon out there last night .... blush.gif

I hear water temps have gotten into the 60's ..... ooo.gif

Need to start getting caught up on my sleep, going to hit it 1 or 2 nights this weekend, just to see ..... wink.gif

eyes54 - I mostly just troll in the fall --- or only troll in the fall. Indian Point is a great spot if it's not covered by bobber guys but I've never tried off Sherman's Point. Right in Shaboshkong bay in front of the public access is a well-known hot spot in the fall. I fish weeds a lot, 4-8 fow most of the time. If you can find weeds and rocks together, hold on. Lots of guys hit the rocks on the E and SE sides.

The only pattern I have for muskies when night trolling for walleyes is the bigger the bait, the better. The only muskie I had last year and all my biggest pike came on stick baits like a #12 HJ or a Limited Edition Rogue (bigger than a normal Rogue). Last year guys were joking to not use a #14 HJ unless you wanted a ski to take it. The musky we had last year came on one of the Myr Mar reefs.

      What a morning jigging on one of the best, fastest bites of the summer for me Tuesday morning of this week.  I had a guide trip but they cancelled that morning and I almost stayed on shore. Since I had the boat in the water and everything was set I went out by myself to check out a couple of spots.  I didnt get very far

       Anyone have any good news or been up there lately waz up  over the Fourth of July did OK nothing to brag about a few walleyes  or any other lakes around the area not looking for hotspots or nothing trying to catch a few panties
    • jj56342
      OK thank you thinking about going up first week in September

      Low water continues to be the issue on the Red. Below the dams still remains sketchy so use boats at your own risk.  The fishing remains stable, similar to last week in that the fish are spread out but in the holes in the middle of the river.  Short 15-20 minute sits on spots keeping the bait fresh looking for the active catfish.
        Bait is still heavy to frogs and frozen suckers with goldeyes working some but it seems that frog and sucker are the best.  As water cools down I suspect fresh sucker will come into play as well.

      I used to have many fields but some guides came in and pay for the fields. I am down to 3 farms but they don't have any small grains this year. So I am going to take the early season off. As I know the geese will use some ponds to rest and I have access to them so I will wait until the regular season to pick off a few geese.

      That's what I planned on doing while I bow hunted but wasn't sure since I got one in spring if I could get another. Thanks

      I was marking various things, but I didn't note a correlation between marking something and catching the walleye.  Also was catching smallies on the same reefs, although maybe at a little different depth.   In fact I was surprised when the walleye hit.  Likewise the other one the next evening.

      Eden prairie purgatory lake is full of carp. You can see them from the dock or the bridge.
