      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 .

Has anybody seen the entry forms for the lake traverse tournament?

I’ve fished it the last 3 or 4 years and I’m a little worried that we, for whatever reason, have been lost in the shuffle.

Thanks

We fished a WWA tourney on Traverse that happened to be the day after the Walleye Masters Tourney a few years back. Wish we would have known about it before hand. It looked like a well run event!

Traverse was designed by the devil himself, but that's what so cool about it. It's definately a big fish lake too.

Good Luck!

I hear ya!

For the newcomer it’s very intimidating, the rocks in this lake have claimed many of lower units,

Typically we catch a great bag pre-fishing then either the weather or the walleyes through a monkey wrench into our system, this is our year.

I love it thou, throwing #5's and jigs at the shoreline rocks, bobering the rock piles, pulling plugs. Cant wait till open water!!!!!

Yes, one day event still, first come first serve team number sorted by mailed in entry (postmark date) usually fills up fast.

Last year they did have a Sunday event for those interested, but you had to fish Saturday to be eligible for Sunday.

I’ve not yet got a hold of Ben's Bait but still trying

I’ll let you know

I cant believe that out of all the FM'rs veiwing this site, nobody has a clue about this tourny or who to contact.

Ha! That was the day! I'm serious, I had a wave crash over my wavewacker leaving 6 inches of water standing in the back of my boat. It was the most miserable day on the water I have ever experienced in my life. Only 4 or 5 teams caught a weigh fish (we caught 1 tiny 8 inch walleye). I left the anchor out on the deck and it fell on my new rod snapping it in half. And, to top it off, we had been camping in a tent since Thursday night that week. Imagine how beat down we were!!!

On the ride home we said we would never to fish a tournament again. Well, that idea didn't pan out. In fact, I am kinda in the mood to try Traverse again!

Email me the info when you get it (email below)..

      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.
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      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.

      Ditto. I switched to a 3 inch shell in #2 shot. I missed a few wood ducks this morning but got one teal. Not bad for the WMA I was hunting. 2 ducks would be great. 3-4 like you won the lottery. Saw plenty of action but it was fast moving wood ducks out of range. Geese never showed. And you can't shoot trumpeter swans! There were plenty of those. Let my boy sleep in this morning. Tomorrow we'll hit the more pressured lake. I saw at least one person setting up on it this morning on my drive to the WMA. The nice thing about that - when you're almost certain you'll be the only one there - is that you can roll in not long before shooting time if it doesn't take you long to set up.
