      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 .

As i sit here in Finlayson watching the snow pile up by the feet i wonder if i will see another batch of jumbo perch? I love the late bite on the mud but with this dump will any resort expend the energy and time to plow to the flats? Liberty used to be really on it but i don't know about this year any updates this week would be awsome I'd pay 20$ for another trip out for Jumbos....

I would think that if you could pull a house or if it was nice out, you could get by with a quad or a sled to get out there. Just my thought, that's what I would do. Then you could get to wherever you want. I would think that with all the snow a sled would probably be a bit better than a quad though. Just for sake of possibly getting stuck in a two foot drift three miles from shore! smirk.gif

i had a bunch of minneapolis firemen up monday and tuesday, and george plowed over 20 miles of road over the 2 days. you could get around real good with a 2 wheel drive van. i am sure that he will at least open up what he plowed monday and tuesday.................tom fellegy

Tom is correct.

Just got off the phone with George at Nitti's Hunters Point and he is going to be plowing roads out to 3 mile only at this time.

The winds are pretty steady and the snow is drifting pretty bad. We have around 18 inches of snow and its very light and drifting everywhere. George told me that until the winds die down he will not be plowing roads until the winds die down.

There is around 30 plus inches of new snow on the lake and drifting all over. Bring your snowmobile if you want to get around. Four Wheelers will not cut it off the roads! We are not plowing any roads and I spoke with Kevin this morning and Mac's is not plowing any roads either. I called Fishers Resort this morning and their road is closed also.

I haven't heard of any fishing reports as of today. Everyone has been crambling just to get the fish houses off the lake.

Bring your snowmobiles up and enjoy some trail riding and a little perch fishing. All the trails are freshly groomed and look like a ton of fun! I know thats what I ma going to do this weekend.

Fish On!!!

Was out yesterday from hunters...he has plowed paths to several area's. The only problem I would see in a car is trying to find somewhere to pull off the roads. The roads are plowed 1 1/2 lanes...not the typical highways. You would have to find a safe spot to pull over on the snow so other vehicles could get around you. I would just bring a shovel...

      I am headed to MN for my annual trip and wanted to target pike on leech. For the past 5-6 years I have been kayaking smaller lakes around the area but now I am back to having a decent boat for bigger waters. Used to fish the east side flats in Headquarters and Boy bay prior to my kayak days. Usual came earlier in the year as well. Bucktails on weedlines still my best bet or do you think crankbaits are the way to go just off weedlines? Better spots than others? Should be there a few days before / after Labor Day.

        I believe the  problem here is a hull with rocker.   At different trim and speed the hull does just that, rocks.   Normally you'd trim in, throttle up and once on plane, throttle back to cruise speed and adjust the trim out.    To be trimmed all in at WOT or even cruising speed would make must hulls plow water at the bow.   In the case with rocker you usually find the porpoise stops when you increase speed.   The fin might be enough to lift the transom up and stabilize it.   Let us know what you do and how it works.

      Went and tried a new spot... 3 snacky cats. One of them took my rod straight into the river and I had to dive in after it. Good times.

      I use the Daiwa ct r also have 2 of them best out there in my opinion.
    • FishinCT
      Pretty good for me from Monday through Wednesday. Found them from 14-24ft depending on the spot but most fish came from under 20ft. Trust the electronics and motor around til you find a good school. They are hitting pretty well when you find them

      Best wishes for a happy retirement Ace.   I could never have done the guide thing even if I were a good enough fisherman.   It takes a special type of person to deal with all the different people... Congratulations on a job well done. 
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Terry, Sorry to hear that you have to retire after all of these years! I suppose It will be my turn to join you and Tommy before to many years also. See you on the water!! Cliff

      Congratulations on job well done sir. Your deserve time for yerself with Sandra an the whole younger crew. You have always been nice to me an a big help when I first seriously did the Muskie fish guide deal back summer 1996. We have had some fun times laughing online an in each other's boat over the years. Even boated a fish or three an coined a few major phrases still used in today's ever so silly online Muskie fish market.  Good stuff that I think only you n I could muster up and never take any of it seriously. Truely makes me smile clear to my middle all the junk we talked about an did. You are a good man Terry and welcome in my boat any time. Anytime. Ya done good and will not soon be forgotten. Thanks for being my friend on or off the water. The name fits as you really have been "The Ace"on our sweet Vermilion.   Still no fish round my docks but Bonnie, Polar Bear Boy an myself always have enjoyed your company. Yer the best in many ways my friend.  Thanks. Keep on Rocken!   Tommy.       PS.    I will continue to keep the Zombie Horde in check.    ; )
