      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 .

I'll bet you have some nice fall colors then.

Never fished Basswood in the fall but I'd looking in the same places I look for eyes in the spring.

Wind blown shorelines if the weather is warm or on the first break. Minnow with either jigs or on a harness for sure along with an assortment of cranks.

Tim,

Not sure where in Basswood you're going, but I'm headed up through Pipestone this weekend so I'll try to let you know where they are. Hopefully, I'll know. Eye's anyway, not sure I'll look to hard for spots.

Thanks to everybody for helping me out, I've been fishin' moose, sucker, and basswood for almost 15 years now and haven't found a crop yet. I believe I'll be there after bass season though, so it's catch and release time. can't wait to to say hello the man above, and watch an eagle soar

peace, Tim

NAMAKANWALLEYE,

Where the heck are you going to find 25 or 32 ft of water in Hoist Bay? When the max depth is avg 12 ft?

Sorry Smallmouth Guide,

I was thinking Back Bay, and the reason I said Hoist, was because it was on my mind, you have to go through Hoist bay to get to back bay, via Prairie Portage,

My Mistake! Promise, I'll never do it again!

Casaloma,

Thanks for teaching me a new word. I wrote it on my wrist so I can use it the rest of the day. Problem is the wife always makes me take a shower at the end of the open water season.

I took my wife to Pipestone Bay through Fall and Newton Lakes on Labor Day Weekend for her first BWCA experience. Because of the action available for smallies, we spent more time on them than anything. She suprised me with her enjoyment of the whole thing, perhaps the 19"& 20" Smallies she landed helped out. That was great! Photos pending her permission. We caught 6-8 walleyes around the mid-lake island/Caribou Point areas. We might have went further, up to the narrows but I decided to limit pushing travel too much with a delicate and important rookie with me! With the exception of a couple small fish from shore, most were in 15' close to deeper water. Minnows or Leeches being equal but may tip more to minnows by the time you're there. Good Luck!

      Thanks for the update cigarguy- were you lindy rigging?
    • CigarGuy
      Neighbor and I went out in Wakemup for a couple hours tonight and got a 18" and 19" and had a nice one come unbutton on the way in....Leaches and crawlers.  That's good for me!  20 - 34' off a break line.  Del, working on the last flight of the steps-was looking for you to stop by and help!

      I used lead core on Friday and had a ball catching walleyes of all sizes.  I started in the morning and stayed out until I just got tired in the afternoon.  I probably pulled in as many as 20 or so.  My formula was:  90 feet of line, 19-24 ft of water, #5 rattling split deep shad rap.  Silver color.  I kept it right at 2mph.  I also did much better when I pumped the rod in a regular cadence.  Keeping it in the rod holder didn't produce near the fish.

      Ace, I hope you enjoy your retirement.  I hired you one time and my boy and I had a good time.  I appreciate the hard work you did on putting us on fish.  Good Luck and maybe "Little Ace" can continue the family business some day!   Michael Theis

      These are legal aliens.  Glad you enjoyed your lunch.

      Trolling or casting jigs and spinners(silver or gold are best for pike IMO) near the weeds, in bays, etc, cranks, and top water buzz baits around weedy areas are how I get most of my pike. Use a leader. Orange jig heads with a sparkly yellow twister tail and a jumbo leech gets me more pike than any other method. Your mileage may vary.

      I had lunch there a couple of days ago. Great service and good food! I did not see any illegal type aliens there at that time!  Cliff
