      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 .

I have some freinds coming from out of state to do some fishng for either Walleyes or Crappies and I was wondering if someone could tell me which area lakes are currently producing the best bite. I really appreciate your help. Two of the guys will be ice fishing for the first time so I want to give them a good experiance. Thanks

Be careful driving out there. Yesterdays temps along with the wind really weakened the ice. When we were leaving a truck had broken partly through at the park access. He was able to be pulled out by another truck but that ice got sloppy fast. If I was pulling houses off this weekend I would be leaving at the DNR access. Both the park and the south access have inlets that really corrode the ice in these sunny warm temps.

If you want to catch walleyes and crappies but you aren't too worried about how big they are I would go to buffalo. Last weekend I caught 35 walleyes and 4 crappies. Most of the walleyes are 9 to 11 inches but I got a couple 12 inchers and a 14. You're not going to get too many keepers but there will be some action. I was in about 16FOW about half way between the 30 foot hole and the outlet to deer lake. You will get more walleyes than crappies there. If you want more of a mix I would go near the 30 foot hole in 16 to 20 FOW on the south side of the hole. The best jigs were a plain hook and a fatty and demons and weasles with crappie minnows or fatheads. They did not seem to be very shy about biting last weekend. They may be a bit more shy with the weather this weekend. There is some decent pike action intermittantly in these locations as well in the daylight hours.

14inch walleye is small but at least an eater for many. But 9-11" walleyes I would not call that eating size. Being seen with them in a bucket would bring some harsh replies from alot of guys.

R, the ramp by the park also has water running into the lake next to the ramp. That water can warm-up before hitting the lake an also weaken ice near ramp.

I agree with you about seeing them in a bucket. He was looking for some action to show some people from out of town. The 9-11 inchers will give you action all day long out there. Not the best fighters but will at least show a guy a good time. I was not at all suggesting keeping them. I wouldn't unless they were injured severly. You can get a few decent sized fish if you try long enough.

      Reminder, meeting tonight at 7:00pm in Annandale and written comment period runs til August 28th. The email addresses for comment are on pages 18-19. Comment now or the days of fishing your favorite lake anytime you want, will be over! I’m sure this is coming to a county near you if this goes thru out here.

      Not uncommon at all for this time of year.  I used to try and find some regularly around Labor Day and always ran into problems.  I think its just the nature of the bait business.

      Does anyone know where I can get some jumbo leeches between the Twin Cities and Mille Lacs?  I would even settle for large.  There seems to be a shortage of supply. Thanks!

      Our prayers were answered from the south with some river flow. For now the river is back to easier and safer boating so we can get around.
        The catfishing has held steady, same as the past two weeks. The fish have moved to the shallow off current sides of the river since the nights have recently become cooler.  Sits have become longer to 25-35 minutes per spot to allow the fish to find the bait.  Mid-Day don't be afraid to find some current or move back to the middle to see if the fish have moved out to feed.
        Bait has been frozen suckers and frogs.  All other baits just don't seem to have the same effectiveness.
        We are entering into some transitions to fall and things will be changing over the next week or two.  The new flow should get the fish moving a bit more and that fall feed should ramp up over the next couple weeks.

      Also check for water in the fuel filter. At higher rpms water droplets travel to carbs and causes poor combustion. Happened to me some years ago. Had to drain water out of tank.

      Skunked, It was nice meeting you.  I've seen you,  your wife and little one a few times, but you never waved-thought you might be mad at me after we had a little debate on netting.  Sounds like were good!  Stop by if you see me on the dock.  That was my wife and sister in-law assembling the bench. That pinch area on the river is tight and some folks tend to fly right thru.  Also, people fishing on that dock in the pinch down area in the spring, don't like to reel in their bobber when you try to navigate through the boats in the spring.  I used the fish the St Louis River a lot and fellow fisherman were terrible flying by you.  I too follow the no-wake policy when going through tight areas.

      Yep, done for the year.  Not much for heat or insulation in the cabin.  It's a real, honest to goodness cabin.   So, as of Thursday, adios.  Until next year, etc.
    • CigarGuy
      Del, are you done up here for the year?  Missing the best part of the year!  If you see me on the dock or out on the lake..say hi!  I wouldn't just drop in and introduce myself either-not my style.  Don't have to worry too much about anybody climbing the mountain to do that

      About 69 this morning.... And this concludes my reporting until sometime in 2018, Lord willing. But I will still be watching....
    • delcecchi
      I will add that it is nothing like the old days when throwing a marker was practically life threatening..... But that is west end.   If it wasn't for the musky  guys there would only be like three of us...
