      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 .

Alright it's that time again, the weekend is finally here its time to get down to some serious fishing again! The word according to Jim is good, walleyes and saugers have kicked it up a notch, fatheads on a gold 1/4 jig seems to be the ticket going vertical is the key! I'm sad to say I won't be making it out in the morning, I volunteered my services on saturday for the better good! I will for sure be out there sunday, plan on making a day of it! Jim nice chat with you don't catch them all, see you on the water sunday or in the boat! grin.gif

The verdict is in, gold jig tipped with a fatty, only two for the box,dragging a short snell 12" with a yellow floating head with a fatty, priceless! Rod left in holder catches 4 for the box and countless others missed, thanks Jim! I'm pumped up for the morning got everything loaded, tied and ready to go, should be on the river by 6ish can't hardly wait! cool.gif

Hit the riv from 2-5 tonight, boated 5 sauger/saugeye from 17-19", pretty motionless vertical presentation was the key, if I was dragging bottom I couldn't get a bite. A hold of the jig about 6-12" off was the key.

Whoever was in that G3 by Prescott asked my buddy about FM while I was on my phone. That was me in the Alumacraft/Suzuki. Nice talking to you out there whoever you are.

I was also at the river this morning from 7-1. I only boated one keeper. I saw other boats that did well in the early morning. I just suck for some reason lately. Vertical jigging was the key, but jigging that was almost motionless and very slow. I think it might be time for me to put the boat away. frown.gif

honda-was it an older gentleman and a younger boy in a lund by the kinni? We fished there and watch the older guy boat 3 eyes in just a few min. We ended up with two smallies and one nice crappie. Always next week.

Well the trip to the river started out late had some issues with a pump, came through prescott bridge area around 7 seen a couple being caught as I was going past. Got to the first area to try and right away put one in the box, then some smallies and the highlite of my day a 30" cat, what a fighter on 4lb line took a couple pics and let the guy go it was great, headed for another area picked up two for the box, couple sheeps another smallies, moved again to another spot couple bites but nothing to show for it, so off to another spot picked up one more for the box, two sheeps tried another area picked up one more for the box, worked that area till around 3 then headed back down the river and worked prescott bridge area for one more but it didn't happen. Ended the day with five and a very nice pic of a cat, what a great day! grin.gif

I got out for a few hours yesterday as well... worked the catfish area for a while - met up with a 'lurker' that commented on the valuable posts by Walli1 smile.gif.

Had a few nibbles at catfish but couldn't get a hook-set. Moved north and picked up a nice 18" eye. Also managed to boat 4 nice sauger, between 15 and 20 inches! All in all, a pretty darn good day out there!

No, most people that I saw that were doing better was at Prescott. Some lead core trolling, but I saw more caught on vertical jigging. I was vertical jiggin also but the fish just didn't like me. I want to go next weekend but I think it is going to be COLD. I think my open water season is close to a end. Good luck yalls.

I was down at Prescott on Saturday pulling cranks on leadcore and we did pretty OK. Between my buddy and myself we boated 10 walleyes / saugers between 18 and 23 inches

and 1 tiny silver bass. The key for us on Saturday was to tick the bottom with the baits. There's a lot of debris on the river bottom this time of year so great of attention has to be paid to your baits. What made this trip to the river interesting was that my batteries died after about 4 hours (I think I was only running on one) and the rest of the day was spent fishing blind (no depth finders, no GPS and no trolling motor). Kind of limits your ability to explore different areas. Oh well, I'll be back (hopefully with 2 fully charged batteries) on the 19th as my beautiful bride and I get to go visit my in-laws this weekend in Oshkosh.

      Picked up some nice crappie and a couple eater walleyes on Allouez Bay the other day before the rains. Trolled crawlers with one light split shot and others with bottom bouncers. I was surprised at how big the crappie were

      ripped out some old boards that were well past their prime on my boat.  Any recomendations on what to replace them with?  They looked to be treated plywood but wondering if getting something different would work better.  Such as a piece of 1 x 12 pine and throwing a few coats of polyurethane on it as well?  The boards I am talking about are for the benches.   Also, replacing the seats in there as well.  Previous i had the the vinyl foam seats.  When shopping around i am seeing a lot of the molded plastics chairs.  Any preference out there for durability?  Vinyl rips but wondering if the molded crack or break?   Thanks for any feed back!

      The flocks of geese are now flying over my house in the morning and evening, but when this happens Finn gets all jacked up. Like right now he is nudging me and running pawing at the window. A few minutes earlier when the first gaggle few over I was going to change the laundry and Finn raced down and sat by gun safe  whining.  Fishing reports have been great for crappies on the area lakes. Walleyes are not biting as well in lakes but when the rum is clearer that is the place to be. Bears any no quota hunters this might be your year to get a bear around here.  Deer seem to every where drive carefull.  Seeing some ducks flying around.  I have seen a few grouse and pheasants.

      I've been by a time or two trying to figure out which place is yours.   I was out on wakemup last night too.   Got nothing, on crawlers.  Started out at merry go round, went to "picnic island" (little island east/south of taylors).  rigged along edge of those two humps in like 18-25 feet.   Musky guys were coming so I turned.  They turned too, chunking baits in the vicinity of my boat.   Then some guys in a pontoon pulled up and anchored in front of me  and threw out bobbers.   Fished a while longer, and it was getting sort of dark so went home.   Weird.  I've been on those humps a bunch of times this year, and suddenly I get company.   And, even though it is a pretty big area they gravitated to where I was.  I'll be out today too, so if you need help with supervision, let me know.    But I will drive by to check out the new construction.

      Been getting a few on the weed line, early am when there's a little breeze, since the surface temps started coming down. That was about this month's full moon, for me. A very slow troll, fishing vertically, & just a 1/16 oz. jig.
