      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 .

Well...from what I have experienced...there is no bite what so ever. My wife and I just spent the weekend in Spicer, and fished Green. The only thing I got, was a smally out of about 32 fow. That was for about 12 hrs on the water. I have tried Belle & Minnebelle too....I got the same thing there...nothing. Talk about bite...

I was out about 1.5 weeks ago and reported on my afternoon at Erie, but that's the last time I've fished in the Hutch area. Was on a lake near Mankato with some guys and we tied into a number of nice walleyes ranging from 18" - 22" with one boasting a very hefty 28.5". It was a crankbait and rattletrap bite trolling and retrieving around 1.5 - 2mph in 2' - 6' of water over gravel & rocks. Water temps were from 42 degrees on the south end of the lake to 49 degrees on the north end.

Not that the Mankato area is close to Hutch at all, but wanted to mention that crankbaits and rattletraps in shallow over gravel produced pretty well...and it was a daytime bite.

HutchBucks, I agree, no posts in the Hutch forum means no one is LOOKING for the bite, they've already found it. I havent even got out latley, too much hunting to do, especially with pheasants open now, I think this area is one of the best in the state for roosters this year. Couple that with a bunch of ducks being around and having to at least show up a few days a week at work, man there just isnt enough time in the fall to get it all covered.

I better plan on getting out before deer season or it might not be till early ice. We shot 8 roosters saturday so I guess we can afford to get out to Collinwood, since it is only about a mile away from my house.

If this is the best area in the state for pheasants than the rest of the state must be pretty bad! I may not even buy a license this year here as I have better stuff to hunt out west...way out west. I suppose it would be different if some private land is available to hunt.....that whole "who you know" thing is prevalent around here and the WMA's are laughable.

I hope to get the boat out this weekend if the weather cooperates but I'm not holding my breath. I haven't heard a thing about the 'bite' lately.

Combining corn, shot a deer sat. night, and building bunks in the new fish house dosen't leave too much time for fishing this last weekend.

Not to mention a person could be duck hunting, pheasant hunting, goose hunting, heading up north to hunt grouse - wow I love fishing as much as the next guy but I fish hard for 9 months and hunt hard for 3 - Ohhh when I bring down the lottery I will post a different story.

went to Jennie tonight, and guess what...I have got to be the worlds worst fisherman. I can't get a bite for nothing. Raps, lindy, big minnow, small minnow, worms, 3fow, 12fow, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11. I have tried and tried...no fall bite for me this year. I think it's time to put it all away and get ready for ice fish'in.

P.S. I might be willing to let someone show me what the heck I am doing wrong. smile.gif

LIMITOUT-I didnt say THE best, I said ONE of the best, seems like there was a much better hatch around here than other places. I do pheasant hunt almost strictly private land though. We dont hit much public throughout the year, maybee after all the corn is out.

Dave, maybee try a different time of day??? I dont know.

      Did a few off season projects waiting for Ice. - Underwater camera, Fish Finder, Wheel house mods and the latest converting a 2 cycle Jiffy Lite 90 to an ION battery auger. Got the auger off Craiglist for $10, Drill for $15. Second stage of gear box is a 5 to 1 reduction so got the auger blade to turn at about 250 RPM which I feel is an ideal speed. Gear reduction also doubled the torque of the motor drive. Planning to use the Dewalt 20V ION battery as I already have charger and now converting one of the 1.5 AH batteries to either 9 or 12 AH.  If anyone needs a mid 80's Jiffy Lite 90 motor and clutch PM me. Has great compression, never tried to start it.  Price somewhere between free and a gift. If you did a project this summer, would you care to share them? DJ ION Auger HB.mp4  << Click link for video

      You may want to consider #3 ; Rapala Jiggin Raps, or drop shoting. They both have been putting some nice size suspended slabs topside under some breezy conditions as of late. Fishing sure was downright epic the last week for all species. To bad it looks like "global warmering" is coming to an end for this year, was awesome while it lasted...... Those are some decent perch panman54. LOL!

      Pretty remote and flat back there. I haven't been on that exact shoreline but I bet you can pull a boat up there quite easily.

      I didnt hear how the second day went yet.  The long term average is 8% success up to 10% during the 2 deer era.  so 5.7% isnt bad for day 1.   Cooler weather will hopefully help us second weekenders. I havent seen much for rubs or scrapes here yet, should be starting any day.

      HooDoo Point, Everett Bay public landing, or the Casino are all good landings if you want to fish Big Bay. The Y-Store or  the Food and Fuel in Tower both have good bait. Cliff

      Anything from moccasin point west can be pretty spotty with Verizon. If you're on big bay it's tough to beat

      I just read an article in the paper recently, that pout fest might be relocated to Lake Bemidji in 2018. It never gave a reason why though. Anyone know anything?

      we cant figure out what they want in that lake. LOL
