      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 .

Lets start a list of resorts that are maintaining ice roads.

Barnacles, Lyback's and Hunters Point are three that I know of. Heading to Barnacles in the morning.

Do these roads that are being plowed have access points where you cant break thru to go off on your own.The plow berms can be a bear to get thru.

You won't get far with a wheeler or a truck. Was up there all weekend, struggled in areas with snowmobiles. Lots of water creeping up on the ice.

they kind of left us high and dry last year when there was plenty of ice left. They pulled there bridge while Barnacles kept there's going for weeks and won me over big time. I usually get more fishing tips from these guys too, they seem to work harder at it.

I think Hunters was out to 3 mile this weekend. 2 mile for sure. With the 40 degree temps there is going to be mucho water on the ice this weekend. Gonna be tough traveling even with sleds. I think the Whitecap owner said he was gonna plow out his road this week to for the big perch pounder deal.

was up yesterday out of Hunters, they were out plowing a lot yesterday, Definately making it out to the middle. We think we were on 7 mile, and roads went a long way further north/west of where we were. Fishing wasn't any good however.

Barnacles plowed roads to the flats yesterday. Hunters and Barnacles roads meet at the jug. Took me most of the day, but I found them in 32 feet.

I talked to a buddy this evening (Thurs) who is up on the NW west side. He said Terry's Harbor (St Albans Bay) has wide plowed roads out to several good spots including deep rocks on Seguichi point, Sherman's point, Sherman's mud flat, Rockpile Flat, Brown's Point, 7 Mi Flat, and some other spots I didn't catch. He said the perch are hitting on the deep rocks.

It took us all morning but we finally found the JUMBOS!!! 22ft to 26ft of water just off the Doe Island Reef. The JUMBOS are in deeper water as we caught smaller perch in the shallower water.

The weather is UNBELIEVEABLE!!! You better get up here and fih these GIANT JUMBOS! Its going to be a great month of fishing here on Mille Lacs!

We have around 5 miles of roads gouing from Cedar Creek along Doe Island Reef and In the Bay.

See ya up here at Mille Lacs Lake!!!

I will post pictures later today.

Fish On!!!

      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.
