      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 .

Fishing Canadian Side This Weekend

Recommended Posts

Pigashalaka

Coming up to fish Red Gut Area for crappies. Favorite time of year to go to Rainy Lake. Coming up next two weekends. Wondering if anyone has been out for them recently or any updates for the slabbers. I got spots to share, if anyone wants to do a little trading of locations. Fishmeister, will you be working on Saturday morning? Might stop in for eats and for some crappies ideas. Thanks....Never fished Northwest bay, but might be interested if someone has some info for me. Thanks!!!!!!

Fished Northwest Bay last weekend and did well for crappies. Had to sort through alot of small ones but the nice eaters were mixed in. The fish seemed scattered in small (5 - 10 fish) groups and watching the locator and vertical fishing the small groups worked well. Fish were suspended 20 to 25 feet down over 36 feet of water.

Good luck!

Thanks for the info. How do you get to NW bay? Where is the landing. Is the landing on Birch Point? Where do you turn? What road is it? I am going to fish Red Gut one day, then fish NW bay the other day for crappies and walleyes. Please advise. Thanks a ton.

Pigashalaka:

To get to Northwest Bay take 11/71 west out of Fort Francis until you meet 613 in Devlin. Take that north about 20 minutes to LaBelle's Birch Point Camp. He has a landing and a place to park. I believe that he charges about $7.00 per day. From LaBelle's landing to where people fish Crappies is about 7 miles by water. I will be in that area the weekend of the 20th to fish crappies. If you see a Black ranger with silver stripes stop by.

Here is a map and directions to LaBelle's.

HI LUKE, YOU SOUND LIKE A GOOD FISHERMAN. I WAS UP THERE LAST WEEKEND AND THEY WERE HITTING ON SMALL PINK SKIRTS TIPPED WITH SUCKER GUTS UP IN THE CROW ROCK AREA. WE ALSO DID WELL IN THE BOG BUT HAD TO DRAG A BOAT WITH A HORSIE.

Thanks for the info. I think I figured out on the map where people fish. Has anyone ever caught crappies off of Galbraith Point? That looks logical to me. There is also another deep swath of water between shelter islands and Turkey island. Anyone tried that ever? Tight lines, hopefully the snow will stay away for a little while. I will be there on sunday with bells on in a gray alumacraft tournament pro, with a 75 honda. If someone sees me lost, just point me to a bar. Might be up the next weekend, if so, I will look for you Jeff....I'll post results..

PIG, THERE IS A NICE BAR IN FORTFRANCIS CALLED THE WARP 9 AND IT IS SURE TO PLEASE ALL YOUR PLEASURES. I HAVE GOTTEN SOME VALUABLE INFORMATION IN THE ESTABLISHMENT. IF YOU HAVE TIME, FISH FOR CRAPPIES IN FRONT OF WOODY'S, STOP IN, HE KNOWS EVERYTHING WHEN IT COMES TO RAINY LAKE AND IT'S CHEAP.

Crappie fishin has slowed a bit in the red gut area. Too many changes in the weather and has kind of shut them off for a bit. Right now it is snowing and BLOWING pretty good. I see ICE in the very near future!

Looks like you got 'er licked...May I suggest some late fall muskie fishing? With the weather pattern we recently had should have a chance at hookin' one of 'em. Hope you catch some fish!! P.S. How did the last trip go when you brought the woman? Any luck??? Please give a report, since I too, plan to go next weekend and it sounds like we are looking in the same locations for the same fish.

Nice to hear from you. Did I see you up on Rainy in August? I was there, I think you were too, the same time. I ended up bringing up my buddy Tom instead of my woman that trip. We did manage to have quite the time chewing gum and drinking beer while fishing. Caught on bunch down by Enzios Reef and also managed to set sail with Capt Morgan at Kettle Falls. Wannna just come with me saturday? I am sure my girlfriend wont mind one bit. Dogs will be there too. Let me know.

Very funny! Yes, you may have seem me on Rainy in August. I was there with my friend Lucy. We did okay, nothing hot and heavy. We graphed a lot of arcs, but worked hard to interest the fish. It sounds tempting to join you on Saturday. Enough room for all of us?? What about my dog?

Fisherchick--

Went up to NW bay, fished for crappies one last time. It is just such a good time up there, cant seem to stay away. Did well, took home a decent amount of fish. Also, a nice slime rocket (northern) was landed. The Viking was fun, on Friday night and was also fun again on sunday evening. I liked it better on Sunday evening. Keep in touch, fisherchick, maybe our paths will cross this winter on the ice. You ice fish? I'd jig up a few with you.

      As far as I know, never been there.  I know it's great for splake, browns and lakers.

      A return client for a couple years brought fish grips with him... After watching him mangle a couple fish I asked him not to bring them anymore. Big fish need more care when landing in my experience. I hand land most muskies. This helps with not bringing a green (not ready) fish into the boat to hurt itself and the boat. With musky fishing growing in popularity I'm noticing a lot more fish with net scars from green fish. For a young musky angler learn correct technique early. The scars after a 4 fish day are a badge of honor. One of the best gifts I've received for my musky gear is a good pair of wire cutters. I use them to cut hooks in an emergency or out of a poorly hooked fish. Or if you can find it...a jar of musky slime cologne, my wife loves it. Ha! Good luck

      I fished shakopee lake in onamia on monday it had ten inches of good ice. Lots of air bubbles but seemed solid. I would guess most lakes in the area have enough to at least walk on but u can never trust ice so be carfull bring spud bar and ice picks and a friend just in case
