      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 .

We'll be launching at Terry's and fishing inside weededges until we fall asleep. Sounds like it may be calming down which may allow us to make some runs to other haunts tonight.

So how did we do? I got about 7 with a couple eaters. Man was it nice out. Slowed down for me after the moon went down behind the trees and the wind died. Never again trying to lunch at Garrison with no dock. Damm near took out my trolling motor.

Boat traffic was pretty heavy in the bay, but I've seen worse. The bite in the bay was pretty slow for us. We fished until about 10 and caught 8 walleyes and a northern. Moved to rock weed transition away from all the boat traffic and got onto a very good bite. We fished until about 1:30(really 2:30 w/daylight savings) and ended with over 30 for the night. Best color, after a tip from Mykal on the weedline, was orange and black with TS being second. Speed was approx. 1.1-1.2 with alot of inside turn bites. We caught a 27" and 27.5" which were the biggest and a lot of fish in the 17"-24" range. The fish are getting noticeably fatter. Also, we probably had at least 10 fish come unhooked. The other thing we've noticed is that some of the fish are looking a little ragged with scars and warts. I've seen this before, but it seems as if more fish are a little beat up. Can't wait to get back up next weekend.

Good to hear D. Sorry on getting in close on you the other day, glad it was you. I was focused on the electronics and my partner had his back turned. Tim was using his white and scale pattern again and caught 2 before I even got my line all the way back. I can't catch a fish on that color at all. Go figure. Funny how that works, I think it has a lot to do with how the bait is tuned as much as color. My Rainbow was a dud, but I never checked it before we went out and it has been pummeled this year...probabaly out of tune. We caught 10 eyes and one Pike from 6:30pm to 8:30pm between 16.5 and 25, plus I finally went toe to toe with a super sumo 28". Leaving a great bite, but still looking for those 28-30+ fish that have eluded us so far this fall, we set sail for the rocks on the SW end. Spent 3 hours looking for big fish to no avail. Just not happening out there. Tail between our legs we headed for Shabosh because there was only one boat in the bay, Boated a 16 on a short pass and figured that there would be more of the same there so we headed up North off the Point. we boated 3 between 16.5 and 24 on our first pass in and like you said missed as many including another very big fish that came undone halfway to the boat. Finally went back to the bay and picked up another 16.5 and called it a night. Can't give up looking for those sumo's because they are out there feeding somewhere. Bigeyes will be up for a few days this week fishing all over the lake so hopefuly he will tap into some brutes somehwere. The bay is a given, but like you said the fish have been hammered in there, time to move on.

M, I think I actually got close to you as we were passing because I thought it might be you. I think I kind've snuck up on you. I think I'm headed up Thursday with a couple of buddies, but the weather looks like it may be a little on the cool side. Also, we fished with three in the boat on Saturday which I've done a bunch this fall and I think it increases the catch by about 25-35%. It helps to have the extra line in the water to help figure out what the pattern is.

      Where's the best place to get bait at Vermillion?? Is Hoodoo the best access to fish big bay? The girlfriend and I are going to come up for a day trip tomorrow...Thanks for any help.

      I believe that there is a campsite or picnic area in the bay just South of the S-Curve  located adjacent to the WMA, I believe that Green Herons and Blue Herons nest in the trees there! Cliff

      Hope everyone had a great summer season of fishing and otherwise, and here's to hoping the fall season is going well.  I'm planning to get some grouse hunting in while up in a couple weeks and noticed Pine Island has a WMA on it.  Figured if I had time, I can take a quick ride out to there and have fun walking around on an island WMA.  Does anyone have any input on difficulty of beaching a boat somewhere along the shoreline on the north or south side, if even possible?   Thanks for the help and advice this year from everyone I talked to on here.  Looking like I may miss out on hard water this year and will have to put cracking that nut off until next year.

      Northwestern and central Minnesota have elevated fire danger due to sparse rain, high winds and lack of humidity. This means that open burning may be restricted in certain counties. The Department of Natural Resources urges Minnesotans to use caution while burning yard waste or leaf piles outdoors and to check the burning permit website for information.  “During fall, we know that residents and property owners will be taking care of leaf and brush piles,” said Casey McCoy, DNR wildfire prevention supervisor. “Piles can smolder undetected for several weeks under the right conditions. Windy, fall days can reignite these piles.” On average, Minnesota issues approximately 43,250 burn permits annually. When weather conditions warrant it, state fire team leaders may turn burning permits on or off. To determine whether burning is allowed, Minnesotans should regularly check their county burning restrictions. Residents may need to find alternatives to burning such as composting or hauling brush to a collection site or wait until it is safer to burn. “If you do decide to burn yard waste or leaf piles, do so when there is less wind,” said Linda Gormanson, burning permit coordinator. “Instead of burning your yard waste and potentially causing a wildfire, compost or chip your yard waste or bring it to a collection site.” Burning restrictions do not apply to campfires; they are still allowed. Clear an area around the campfire, watch it continuously and make sure it is out cold to the touch before leaving. Fire danger can change quickly. Check the Minnesota Incident Command System site https://goo.gl/W686km for fire behavior conditions. For questions about burning restrictions, check the DNR page at mndnr.gov/burnrestrictions or call your local Forestry office. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Lots of boats on the river daily here in LF now.  Select people are hitting good pods of fish and catching well.  Flows, though still Very swift, are slowing.  Fish are becoming a little more scattered, more fish are being caught away from shore and away from prominate structure. Minnows and tubes pulling most fish.  A few nice fish here and there most are falling in the 15-17 inch range. Good luck out there.

      Rivers are so under fished in this state.  People seem to gravitate towards lakes all the time and avoid rivers but the reality is that rivers, large and small, have awesome fishing.
