      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 .

Cool guys! Got ya down.

If you are planning on fishing Friday night, Sat. morning, just swing into Hillman's by noon on Saturday to make sure you meet up with the crew.

I will be up there late, late Thurs night and fishing Friday as well. I'll more than likely be swinging into Hillman's by 9pm for some socializing on Friday night. smile.gif

Put me on the list also. I be up friday night with my two girls. One's my fishing buddy her sister hasn't been that interested over the past several years but, we were up there the weekend when it felt like Sibera. Caught some eye's and a 41 inch northern. No crappies it was enough to get her to say I want to go back. That's the weekend we picked. Get her one of those slabs and I get the feeling she'll be pushing her sister out of the way to get the front seat in the truck on future fishing trips. smile.gif I'd kinda like to have an idea how far to get the house out on friday night so I'm in the general area. If I asked when I pay for the road pass will they be able by then to get me somewhat close to the big event? Can't Wait.

Chris that's fine, I caught ALOT of fish. No Crappies, but catching 40+ walleye on Saturday was plenty fun. How did you guys do this past weekend? I haven't seen your report anywhere????

T,

Will be checking in Friday afternoon and then going out and doing some fishing. After that probably swing by Tall Tales for a few and then back to the cabin for a late supper and get ready for Saturday. I figured we would just trailer to Hillman's and out to the central meeting place and then start to run and gun.

I'll be up there and will try to stop in. Not sure how many others though. Will be with a group of 8 staying at West Winds plus may have some buddies staying in my shack. Would be fun to meet some fellow FM'ers.

I will be there with at least two other guys. We are all first timers, so be gentle. Hoping to get there late Thursday night if one of the other guys can get Friday off. I might have to buy him a thermometer...

Wow! We're getting a good crew together now! No crappie will be safe with that many anglers working as a team! smile.gif

TTfromBlaine- My shack is down at Rogers Campground still and thats where it will be for that weekend. Its not so easy to move a skid house across the lake. smile.gif I'll be camping down there and fishing out of Hillman's for the weekend.

As to how far out we'll be fishing... we'll definitely be passed the pressure ridge (3 miles), after that, there are consistent groups of houses all the way out to 7 miles or so. I'm thinking that 5 1/2- 6 1/2 mile range but I'm not sure yet.

      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

There has been numerous 26"-30" walleye's caught on a weekly basis through out the summer. This camp and lake have been private up until this past summer. 90% of groups who came for the first time this year have already booked for next year. References are available.

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?

      This weekend near grand marais on thursday and Friday the no see ems were out. A few skeets but once it cooled down the no see ems were gone. Fished a lake that known for horrible bugs and it was not bad.

      That's correct.  For now.

      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!
