      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 .

Just booked a trip for the family for the second week in July at White Eagle resort. Anyone have any comments about this resort? Is it a good place for kids?

And most importantly...How's the fishing in July??

I've fished Rainy a few times...Is Vermillion along the same lines as far as fishing goes?

not sure how old your kids are but we stayed there last summer. They have a basketball court, some indoor table games (don't really remember what they were), one of those water trampolines, water bikes and kayaks. Water is kinda deep off the end of the docks if that is a concern. Prob more stuff than i remember too

I've stayed at White Eagle the second week of July for the past 4 years, and we will be up there again this year. It's a great place to stay for both those who fish and those who want to relax. Although of the 52 weeks in a year, I certaily feel that it may be the absolute worst week to go to Vermilion (from a fishing standpoint)but it works for my family. The great scenery more than makes up for the additional effort it takes to boat fish that time of year!!

We do most of our fishing on the East end of the lake and have had pretty good fishing all summer. It took a few trips with some of the guides and talking to some of my buddies on the lake to get a better understanding of the lake. I suggest that you hire a guide early in week and let them know what you want from the guiding trip, your experience on Rainy and I am sure you will not be disappointed . My experience with the guides and the fishing on the lake has always been excellent. Good luck and have fun.

Thanks for the replies guys! I'm looking forward to the trip. I've heard you can do well in July with a Shad rap in the bays.

My kids are 9 8 6 3.....Should be fun!

Are we close enough to where we can sneek off into a secluded bay...or are we on the wrong side of the lake?

There is plenty of places in Head of the lake bay to get out of the wind, or to get away from all the boat traffic. You can troll cranks out in the basin for walleyes or cast for Pike just around the corner from the resort. There is some pretty good Smallmouth action around Taylors island and the shoreline on the north side of the bay. Even if the Walleye action is a little slow that time of year, there are plenty of other opportunities to catch fish. You'll find plenty of panfish near by to keep the kids happy as well.

You won't regret coming to Vermilion and White Eagle is one of the finest resorts on the lake.

      Can anyone report on fishing on Rainy River this week?
    • Tony S
      Headed up this weekend for the first trip of the fall.  Thinking about fishing the lake with all the good reports from there, but has anybody been up to Clementson, Frontier or Birchdale  areas recently that could give a report?  Thanks.

      VG, Good bite most days now! All minnows for me. jigs or lindys. Chubs, shiners, and pike suckers. Found walleyes from 8' to 40' yesterday. Cliff

      Thanks for chiming in and sharing how the river has been treating you lately. They sure are fun to catch. I am hoping to get out again this weekend for some more smallie action. Hopefully they are still near where I was able to find them last weekend....

      I fish pretty much exclusively above the Sartell dam.  I normally try to hit it 2-3 times per week.  Over the last 3 weeks, I thought the fishing was down right ridiculous(even with the crazy high water) at times, 12-20 fish in a hour or two before sunset.  I found them right up on the bank, and of course in slower moving water.  There are a few spots north of the dam that are great places for high water.  Some larger areas where the water can swirl around and create backwash.  In fact, I'll point my boat down right and put spot lock on, because the water is flowing back up river, and just cast parallel with the bank.  Most of the time I'll throw a Scatter rap, then when I see a fish chasing bait, I'll throw out a wacky rig.   I went out last weekend to a spot I've been hitting, and the fish have diminished big time.  Caught 6 in a couple hours.  Then I went out last night, and caught one walleye.   So, with that in mind I figured they had to of gone to the deeper rock piles.  And, sure enough, I caught 2 just before sunset, then I headed in.   If you have SI, just drive down or up river and look for large groups of rock piles.  Go up river from them, and try and do a controlled drift over the rocks.  I normally use a jig and a tube.  And there's no mistaken them when they hit.   Even a few eyes mixed in every once in a while.
