      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 .

Drill a lot of holes and move with the schools! I had some success last weekend in deeper water on the rocks.

does hunter point have any houses out on the flats? If they do, what flat?

Not that I know of. I believe all their houses are on reefs. (i.e. Lakeside, Flamingo, 2 Mile, 3 Mile)

Hunters has a road to the flats, its plowed about half way to but staked the whole way to the Boot.

I've read the Mille Lacs forums quite a bit but have not fished the lake enough to know the difference between the flats and the reefs. Is the structure different? I've also heard people refer to the walleyes being in the mud or on the rocks or sometimes both. Do they have a seasonal pattern for being in mud vs. rocks? Why would walleyes necessarily be in the mud and not the rocks? I apologize for bombarding with questions, but some clarification would really be appreciated. grin.gif

Cranker, you want to take this one? I can help...generally flats are referred to mud structures and reefs are referring to gravel or rock structure.

irishjigs - Thanks for the clarification. So why or in what circumstances would a person target mud flats over rock reefs or vise versa?

In the winter, I usually base it on the time of the season. Early in the season I will fish rocks...partly because I can't get out to the flats yet(ice not safe). The forage I would say is a little better on the mud than the rocks, but that doesn't mean I will ignore the gravel structure all together. There are some real good gravel areas like the ones I mentioned above that all hold a lot of fish. In reality, there are fish every where...it's not finding them that's an issue, it's getting them to bite!

I know this is pretty general, but when you stop for bait on the way up, make sure to talk to the guy at the shop...almost all I talk to can be very helpful. Also, don't forget to talk to the resort...in your case George at Hunters Point.

One more thing, "The Cranker", who posts numerous topics on this site is also a very good source of information and a good guy to boot. Read some of his new and previous posts to get some more ideas!

Fished out of Hunter's on Friday. Started at the Blue Jug, lots of small perch and missed one eater walleye. Moved in and fished some sandy areas with scattered rocks. Caught one 11" perch and saw quite a few smalls ones on the camera. Talked to a worker from Dickie's and he commented fishing had been slow that entire week. Good luck!!

You're right Coach...it was a little slow last weekend. Hopefully with the warmer temps coming, the fish will start biting a little better.

This weekend Hunters has the Perch & Pout Tournament, and next weekend they got the Perch Extravaganza! Should be some good times!

I fished the flats out from Hunters Pt road on Monday afternoon. The road is marked well all the way out but not all plowed like stated earlier. Very much driveable though. The fishing was a bit slow, but they were there. We saw jumbos and 'eyes on the camera and flashed but hard to get a bite. Wended up taking about 6 jumbos home, no 'eyes were inticed to bite though. It can be frustrating to see them follow the bait but not bite confused.gif I guess thats how it goes. I hope to geive it another shot in the next couple of weeks!

Jake,

The walleyes are like any other predator fish. They will rely on structure to ambush on their prey. In the case of the mud. The mud carries many species of forage that are at the bottom of the lake such as the mud flats.

You can sometimes see the mayfly larva that is lying at the bottom of the lake on top of the mud. The perch and tulipee along with other bait fish eat this larva, therefore are present in these areas, In return these perch and bait fish will attract the predator fish such as the walleye, which feed on the perch and baitfish.

The rocks provide hidding places for both the predator and the bait fish. There are a number of minnows and fresh water shrimp, and crawfish that the predator fish are feeding on. Most of the time the walleye, pike, smallies ect.. will cruze these rock piles in search of bait fish.

I hope that this will be of help to you!

Fish On!!!

I was fishing on top of the mud in 24'. All of my fish came on a silver buscksot with minnow head. They were fussy but if you teased them enough you could get some of them to bite.

Cranker - Thank you for the information, I'm very appreciative of your comments.

Winonaman - I will check out your report and let you know how we did.

Binsfeldnick - You've got mail!

Hopefully one of these times out on the pond I get a chance to meet some of you. I'll be fishing Saturday in the Perch & Pout contest at Hunter's. I look forward to trying some of the areas and techniques you've all described. Once again, thank you everyone. smile.gif

binsfeldnick - Tried the spots you told me of on Saturday morning. I got out there around 6:00am and was graphing fish all morning. Caught two walleyes (19" and 22"). It got slow by 10:00 so we picked up and moved towards the reefs. Caught one 11" perch at the spot I referred you to. Again we graphed fish there all afternoon but couldn't get much to bite. Hope you do well on Monday and Tuesday. grin.gif

      You may want to consider #3 ; Rapala Jiggin Raps, or drop shoting. They both have been putting some nice size suspended slabs topside under some breezy conditions as of late. Fishing sure was downright epic the last week for all species. To bad it looks like "global warmering" is coming to an end for this year, was awesome while it lasted...... Those are some decent perch panman54. LOL!

      Pretty remote and flat back there. I haven't been on that exact shoreline but I bet you can pull a boat up there quite easily.

      I didnt hear how the second day went yet.  The long term average is 8% success up to 10% during the 2 deer era.  so 5.7% isnt bad for day 1.   Cooler weather will hopefully help us second weekenders. I havent seen much for rubs or scrapes here yet, should be starting any day.

      HooDoo Point, Everett Bay public landing, or the Casino are all good landings if you want to fish Big Bay. The Y-Store or  the Food and Fuel in Tower both have good bait. Cliff

      Anything from moccasin point west can be pretty spotty with Verizon. If you're on big bay it's tough to beat

      I just read an article in the paper recently, that pout fest might be relocated to Lake Bemidji in 2018. It never gave a reason why though. Anyone know anything?

      we cant figure out what they want in that lake. LOL

      Lauren (Bubba) Sawatsky has a storage facility just north of Cook on 24.  Might give him a call. http://www.vermilionbarginginc.com/htmls/storage.html 218 666 5512

      There is a problem with the latency of satellite.  Makes loading pages slow.    I agree that a cell phone data plan/hotspot is your best bet.  I think Verizon on East end, and ATT on West end are the choices.   ATT has a tower near Cook, and on south shore of Frazier as mentioned.
