      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 .

What do you guys think, is it time to put the boat away? Or is it going to warm up again? I spent yesterday a.m. on the water and did a heck of a lot of running, a little fishing and not much catching! Bullhead Butch was out the other night and did well, maybe it's an evening bite. All I know for sure is that I'm going to try an arrow a big buck before the Sno Bear gets fired up!

Good luck gun hunters,

Walleyedan

This October has really made me realize how spoiled we've been for about the past 5-7 years in Minnesota. Our fall opportunities seemed to stretch easily to the end of October and into November and it wasn't but a few years ago people were fishing from boats the first week in December out on Gull.

I winterized the other day. Looking forward to Deer and late season roosters! Not looking forward to ice fishing. Can't seem to catch that bug the last couple years.

Good luck deer hunting to all. I saw two bucks in daylight this morning and have seen several nice ones just after dark this past week.

I put the Warrior away yesterday. It was a great season. Seems like the fall bite started in August and lasted through the middle of Oct. then it slowed. 2 1/2 months of steady walleye fishing wore me out a little. Now I'm just enjoying this little break, doing some hunting and starting to think about the winter season. In the blink of an eye it'll be March and we'll be thinking of pulling the boats out and hitting it hard again. Good luck anyone that is still fishing. Right now it is more like an ice fishing bite for the walleyes, concentrate your best efforts during that last hour before dark. I'm heading for the dakotas.

Put the boat away last weekend. Kinda miss the walleye bite. Have been chasing roosters on the weekends and seeing a ton of birds. Hunted a private piece of land last weekend that had yet to be hunted and most have flushed 50+ birds. I have come to the conclusion I'm a horrible shot. I will be back!

Yes, I went out on Pelican last Friday and caught my last walleyes for the season, a 15 and 18, before I got blown off the lake! Tried a little grouse hunting Sat, 1 for 3, not the best shooting either, but at least there seems to be some birds around. Sunday was a great day to get everything including the boat ready for winter. Now this weekend I'm ready for the camaraderie that comes with the rifle season!

      The public launch at The Landing on the west end stays open until the ice sets in, but they do pull the dock sometimes around the end of October / beginning of November.

      Just curious if people are finding fish moving into fall patterns yet or still finding them in more summer locations?  I've been finding good sized panfish in deeper water myself around more mid lake structure. Most of the lakes I've been on are still pretty green with algae and weeds.

      Captain Acorn, I use Gamagatu  octopus hooks. Size 4 for crawlers and size 2 for minnows. Red, black, chartreuse, and pink , mostly red and black. I use orange and green glow soft beads at times. (Worked today!) Cliff

For us the only thing that was working leadcore with cranks 18-24fow looks of eaters but not one over 18" couldn't get the digging raps rigs or jog and minnow to go but I'm sure it's not far off caught about half of mine on cranks when I was turning and didn't seem to matter weather the pole was on the inside or outside 2.2 2.4 was our speed flicker shads and deep runner raps #5 and 7. Cliff what style and size of hook do u use for your minnow rigs? Any beads used?

      We did well today from 1-4pm on an underwater point. Finally found some fish in a semi-sheltered area. Last few days have been tough to control the small light boat with all the wind. Most caught on pink jigs in 21-30ft.  Cliff I did try the circle hook lindy today with the big minnow and nailed the first bite I had. Next 2 bites grabbed it hard but dropped it. Work in progress!
