      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 .

36"er?

Recommended Posts

White-tips

I was working a boat show yesterday and was told of a supposed 36" walleye caught on teh big pond? Any confirmations of this? I was expressly told that it was not the photo of the catholic priest's fish from Tobin and also not the photo of the new Washington state record recently caught on the Columbia River where the Snake dumps in. Any idea where they're seeing this photo?

Whitetip's: I got an Email from "Old Guide" about two weeks ago with a Picture of the fish. It was caught over by Twin Islands off of Long Point. It was reportedly 18 pounds, which I thought would be a new state record... Pat, if you can cast some light on the subject, let us know more about it... Kaz

That one has legs, I get a new wave of emails every 90 days or so asking me about the 36” monster caught near Twin Island. One day I hope it will be true but every one so far has been the priest on Tobin Lake.

Fisky: I have the picture on my computer up north.. Pat Fisher sent it to me, and it did look different then the one from last year.. Looked like it was taken in a fishhouse. Maybe you could give Pat a call in Warroad and ask him to send it to you... I don't think it was the same fish.. Kaz

As far as pics of the walleye thats floated around the internet for the past couple years, go to google and type exactly this in the search:

tobin lake walleye father

Select the first internet link at the top of the list. Father Walleye is pretty darn good apparently. The bottom picture on that page is the one everyone is talking about above.

I don't know how all these rumors get started, but everyone always jumps to a conclusion. I am not saying that it is not possible, but we would have heard some solid evidence from a newspaper or resorts.

As far as that goes I also find it funny that no one has caught on to the same father in all the rumors. They started that one about the harbor down here in duluth not too long ago. I checked it out myself as well...the fish mentioned were caught in tobin lake saskatchawan...the same pic from the rumor can be acces by googling the key words mention two posts above. Nice fish though, but not caught on LOW.

Makes for a good read, but that's about it.

Take Care and Good Luck Fishing Guys!!

White Tips and all,

Its funny that this is specifically NOT the fish caught on

Tobin when it is.

If you hear of a 36" Walleye it is not going to be a true

story. 34 is about all these fish will get. That 19 pounder

in Washington State was 34 inches long. Not to say its

impossible because there might be a mutant out there some

where but unless the story teller hands you a picture of the fish while

talking you can safely discard the information.

With the magic of Photo Shop and digital imaging its funny

we dont see more of these 36"ers.

If you go to google and type in "tobin lake walleye father" like the other guy said, and click on the first link it brings you to a 10 pound club. There are two photos of "Father Walleye" on there right in a row from Oct. 25 of '04 and the picture has to be photoshopped or something. If you look at it, there is a transom mount trolling motor just behind the guy on his right. Nothing wrong with a trolling motor in a fishing picture, but he is in a camper style fish house from the looks of the photo. I don't know anyone that is going to try to power their fish house accross the lake with a trolling motor.

Just thought I would point that out.

I dont think thats in an ice house.

Its in a living room.

And if its from October, that pretty much seals the deal that its not in an ice house.

      Thanks snowfighter. Coming up Dec 9 weekend.my brother took some fish outta little turtle the weekend of Oct 7 th. Sounds like from your end of the lake. Seen pics, some decent pike.

      With 2 trout stamps you can keep double your limit. You heard it here first on the interwebs!  Me and Mr Williams will swing by and say Hi this winter in Ely.   That is, if we can get around your sled!!  Happy Thanksgiving!

       There is probably not going to be much ice to speak of  if the forecast holds true. They are talking 50s on Friday, Sunday and Monday. Any ice we did have will most likely be gone, unfortunately.
    • snowfighter
      Haven't been out looking but things have been froze up for awhile. Heard there was some out on Bowstring last week.

      Wife you dummy  I know the problem first hand !!
    • MJ1657
      It's that time of year. Cone on up and see if you can claim the Nord Lord. Spearing in the Third River Flowage in Winnie. Pizza party Friday night in the lodge potluck in the ice Saturday at noon.   Any questions hollar.

      Saw something interesting on forest lake this morning...lake was completely locked up, yet someone had launched their boat and was trudging through the ice! That’s dedication! Anyone have any ice updates to report?

      2 Trout stamps.  Did I miss something and need to go back and get another?
    • Wanderer
      The 200 foot rule gets me a little but it has to be defined somehow what is occupied and what isn’t.   So for a wheelhouse we get to buy tabs to have on the road and a sticker to have it on the ice and go away for a little while.  Seems pretty close to double taxation since any LE can find out who the owner is from the current plate. Plus the spear shack that I might want to keep up over the weekend.  2 tags plus license. Combination sports license 2 trout stamps Waterfowl stamps Pheasant stamp  Turkey license (stamp now included) Deer license for all seasons   The bucket is getting heavy with all the drops in it.
