      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 .

Well after a crazy weekend of fishing. This is what ended up on my Buckshot Rattle Spoon, Light rod. and 4lb. Test.

These kinds of fish are what it is all about. Put your time in........Find your own spots......be patient and you will be blessed with memories for life. wink.gif

This is why I throw back all of those other upper 20's fish. It makes so much of a difference in every inch. She was giant. It was an extemely tense few minutes while we were trying to position the head up an 8 inch hole. She finally gave me the position and came up the hole with no room to spare.

31' Guessing some where around 12 lbs. IMG_0246-1.jpg

Congrats PBC! Did she come out of Pike's? I've been watching your posts for the past year. I'm also an Iowan that loves to visit Cass Lake. We fish Pike's regularly. Could that be a 4 lb test record for wally's? You might want to check it out! Again Congrats!!! smile.gif

Congratulations! That is truly the fish of of a lifetime. I've been stuck in the upper 20's and had just about given up on getting a 30+, but you have restored my hope. Soooo... did you soak the Rattle Spoon in the Coke or the Coors Light? wink.gif If I were you I would contact Northland and see if they would at least give you some tackle, maybe something more, as a promo.

Thanks Guys.

There are more of them for sure Labs. They just are not fooled by baits that often. Glad one bit on mine. smile.gif

With all the upper 20's that I have seen thrown back and heard from others that have done the same, there is a great chance that sometime you will tie in to one also.

You could also consider tossing the lure in the mouth of it, like I did...tossed the rapala Husky Jerk in the mouth, just to finish off the mount. Just an idea. Once agian, great fish.

Why is it that, despite my 40 years of fishing, I never get a walleye that size?? Life is not fair. Oh well, I bet you never caught a salmon or a Laske Trout grin.gif. Nice walleye

      Fish Lake Baits in Harris had some nice large leeches a couple of weeks ago. Cliff

      After 4 days on a Rainy lake houseboat we managed a walleye fry 3 nights. They where on the deeper mid lake reefs which is no secret, but they wanted minnows. That was the hard part, finding bigger minnows. To my surprise I was able to land a few each afternoon on 5" plastic rigged. 2 boats, 6 people, 47 eyes where clicked biggest 24", smallest 6" and every stop in between. We did fish some bays and the pike were willing to play!city

      The OP was given the system by someone else who was having problems with it. @TNFL If the above statement is correct, try it on your system and see if the fuse blows.  The problem may have been on the other person's rig.   Is it worth contacting the manufacturer for tech help or sending in for testing/service?
    • Wheres_Walter
      Sunday and Monday we caught lots of 15-16" fish at 12-14 FOW.  All on Chartruese jigs with half a crawler.   A couple in the high teens and one 21" as well.  
    • Wanderer
      Leeches are somewhat seasonal and not as prevalent later in the open water season (now).  It's the nature of the bait. Vados would be my first call between the Cities and Mille Lacs but you could always try calling a few shops on the southern side of the lake.

      Back in the old days..... before I retired and we used to come up labor day, I used to fish steep breaks into deep water.  My favorite spot was the north/west tip of Schmidts Island.   There is a little flat than breaks into like 40 feet out in front, more or less, of the dock that goes with the little chalet style cabin.   There are probably other spots along that headolakes shore of the island that are good, so check it out with modern electronics.   I don't know if that area is still working or not.   Jigging raps might work there.  I used a rig with a pretty heavy sinker so I could tip toe over the rocks up and down the break.   Caught what was my PB walleye for a long time on that spot.   Neighbor got a 30 incher somewhere along there.  This is all historical, so maybe not much help anymore.  BTW I typically fished there in the evening.   Never really tried it during the day.

      Jeez no. I can barely remember the netting discussion, let alone which side that I was arguing! Yup, you can see us cruising past quite often probably intent on satisfying the little one's quest for some ice cream at Moosebirds. She loves Sue and Ron. I'll definitely wave or stop by if I see you. I'll be up the next two weekends.
    • Wakemup
      How do you guys like to fish the west end as we transition into September and early fall? My next planned time at the cabin will be Labor day, I'm sure it'll be plenty busy on the lake but hoping to find a few quiet spots in the mornings and evenings to do some walleye fishing.
