      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 .

Not everyone is happy about it. grin.gif Going out for the last hurrah on Sag today. That just might do it for the season as the ice is forming on my lake in the shallow bays. I was hoping to get in at least one day of fishing in November. smirk.gif

That picture made my day. I have been following the weather near Grand Marais just hoping that it would stay cool enough to make ice. It looks like my wish may come true. I just love the first ice walleyes.

Well, it was just a shot in the dark. Looks like the landing on caribou on the other shore. I didnt even think about facing east.

Nice picture by the way. I wouldn’t mind having some good ice right after deer season.

Long lake is private correct?

I just looked at my new St. Louis County fishing map guide, by Sportsman’s Connection. And from Caribou lake rd that would be facing north. I was way off. shocked.gif

Speaking of the fishing map guide. This updated book is great, allot of great information. Also a little more detail than the last version. It has even more information and tips from tackle shop owners and guides on specific lakes. I can’t forget to mention, updated stocking information too. I would recommend this guide to any one from beginners to the pro's.

Yes Long is a private lake. No fish in there either. wink.gif

You must be talking about the new Sportsman's Connection map books. Your right they are great books. I have an old one and was looking at their site the other day. Updated books and with 170 lake maps for St Louis county plus lake information. I use the Navionics chip in my H20c but still find the Sportsman's Connection book useful. You can see them here.

      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
