      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 kept 5 between 11-12 inches. The wind was blowing pretty good so I just drifted the lake and pickup a few every drift. Any where from 11 feet to 14 feet. The fish are usually scattered.Good luck and let me know how you did.

Well it was a b u t full day on the lake but that is all that I can say. We didn't have much luck 3 small crappies 2 sunnies 1 thern and had a few walleye bites. There were 7-10 other boats out 5 in the same area and we saw 3-4 crappies pulled in all morning. not alot of action!!! We left around noon.. used leeches, plastics, and minnows. all crappies caught on plastics, leeches got nibbled and bit off a few times and minnows not much action.... Jigged off the bottom used floats tried alot of presentations anywhere from 4-14 ft.

I was out there this evening and there was quit a crowd,craps seem to be hitting good from what I could see but I didn't have much luck as I stayed off to the side of the rest of the boats,one thing I would like to point out though is RESPECT as I didn't see a whole lot of it out,Guys arguing over fishing spots,boats pulling in on others tangling lines,now tell me is a few fish that important?let's have some courtesy for others as it's a time to enjoy ourselves!I'm new to the area and tonight was my first time on Ann.Is it like that alot out there?

I think it is like that in that area Knife/Ann/Fish. Typical selfish people who think that it is their fish and their lake. Nothing makes me as angry as those people. It goes both ways too. Some people don't want you within 100 yards of their boat and other people will work their way in to the middle of a group of boats.

On Saturday morning 5 boats cruised in and out of each other but everybody seemed friendly. We talked as other boats trolled by and they all gave pointers or updates as to what they caught or what they were fishing for.....but the fish were not biting hard either........I will leave that lake alone till winter then give it a shot again.........Good Luck and have fun!!!!

I shouldn't over generalize. But the few bad apples really make it so unpleasant.

Ive had people setup their fish house within 10 feet of where I was fishing. Dont let anyone see or know if you're catching fish on that lake.

Good luck in the winter I fished the lake many times and never did very well maybe we could get together and fish. I usually fish by myself because I work most weekends. Shoot me a email and I'll tell you the type of plastics I use. The time I was on the lake there where alot of boats and no problems with the boats Good luck everybody

      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
