      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 .

Thanks!!!!!

That's pretty cool but still going to come up for three days and give it a go. Caught them before when I lived up there even when the water temps dipped below forty. Hope the weatherman is right about the temps through Friday.

Dan,

Thanks again for the feedback on water temps. Ya could've helped out with the air temps! Just kidding! It was a bit chilly under the knickers when I hit the water Tues, Weds and Thursday early A.M. The boys working on 169 couldn't believe someone was out fishing. When I showed them the 8# walleye they really got excited. Sorry but I just had to clean one for the table. All the smallmoth and largemouth went right back in the lake. Another good fall trip on the Pokie. Now if I could just convince the wife to let me go one more time.

Oh, I think those fish will bite right up until freeze over. You got to look for them but when you find them boy do they bite. The big northerns were prowling the sand drops and really smacking jerkbaits. The smallmouth, due to the lack of wind, were pushing bait up in thirty to forty feet of water. Don't fish live bait so let those fish alone. Did find enough to catch around some of the food shelves next to deep water. Lots of fun catching them on jerkbaits. The largemouth were in big groups in ten feet of water around any weeds you could find. Tight small areas though. If you were off as little as ten yards you couldn't get bit.

Have a great winter sir and take care.

The Old Guide!

Norball,

Fish the edges of the humps, points and flats that have some weeds left. Troll with cranks or jerkbaits. I was using my electric motor and zig zaging from six feet to fifteen feet of water. The flat just west of Kings Bay was good. Work it all the way to where it turns and heads towards Nesbitt Island. Another spot is to start on the edge south of Stoney Point and work west towards the little island south of Nesbitt. Go all the way out on the underwater point south of the little island. If they're not working around the 169 crossing and the water is cleared up a bit troll back and forth under the bridge, best late or early in the day. Hold on to your rod though because the big ones really hit the bait hard. Colors to try are browns with some orange, red/silver was real good and perch colors. Sunday looks to be a good day wish I could be back up there. Good Luck. Oh, be sure to give the bait a jerk pretty regular. Thats seems to be when they hit.

oldguide, sounds like you had a good trip, an eight pound fish is a dandy. I usually troll under the bridge on my way to other areas but the water was, like you said, kind of murky, and haven't had much luck there yet. I haven't been out for a week or so, but at that time it was good. I think you are right about the bite staying strong for awhile yet, probably into Jan.. The duck hunting has been really good this year, so I have been torn between fishing and hunting. I'm curious, did you see any tulibee/whitefish nets out?

Dan,

Nope didn't see any nets or markers for them! Know of one guy that does a little of that but mostly on Sugar. Sucker takes a few walleyes to. Hope he gets caught.

      Best wishes for a happy retirement Ace.   I could never have done the guide thing even if I were a good enough fisherman.   It takes a special type of person to deal with all the different people... Congratulations on a job well done.

      Terry, Sorry to hear that you have to retire after all of these years! I suppose It will be my turn to join you and Tommy before to many years also. See you on the water!! Cliff

      Congratulations on job well done sir. Your deserve time for yerself with Sandra an the whole younger crew. You have always been nice to me an a big help when I first seriously did the Muskie fish guide deal back summer 1996. We have had some fun times laughing online an in each other's boat over the years. Even boated a fish or three an coined a few major phrases still used in today's ever so silly online Muskie fish market.  Good stuff that I think only you n I could muster up and never take any of it seriously. Truely makes me smile clear to my middle all the junk we talked about an did. You are a good man Terry and welcome in my boat any time. Anytime. Ya done good and will not soon be forgotten. Thanks for being my friend on or off the water. The name fits as you really have been "The Ace"on our sweet Vermilion.   Still no fish round my docks but Bonnie, Polar Bear Boy an myself always have enjoyed your company. Yer the best in many ways my friend.  Thanks. Keep on Rocken!   Tommy.       PS.    I will continue to keep the Zombie Horde in check.    ; )

      I hope you enjoy your retirement!

      Keep the reports coming Curt, much appreciated.  Unfortunately, I'm not able to get back up there until September 22-25th., so it going to be tough keeping my mind on work and not LOW.  Are you just moving around in the basin until you mark a school of fish, and then jigging them?  I see all of your waypoints on the screen you showed, so those must be spots that have held fish at one time.

      Hey everybody, I have my last two guide trips on the 22nd and 23rd of August. A bad back and old age have taken their toll and I will retire from a job I have loved to do for the last 27 years.  I still enjoy it but unfortunately my body just can't take the pounding anymore. I'll still be out there fishing but no longer on a daily basis. I will miss all the regular clients I have had over the years and all the new people I have met that I can call my friends. Thanks to all of you that have shared the boat with me over the years, I hope you all had a good time. "Ace"   "It's just fishing man"

      Bought a couple of baitcaster reels..my first....Lew's BB1 speed spool and Daiwa Tatula CT R. After about two weeks of daily practice casting in the river behind our house....lots of backlashes(birds nests)...I gotta say, I've come to love casting with these reels....much more accurate than my spinning reels. Any other baitcasting fans out there?  If so, what do you use?
