      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 .

Went out to Burntside again today with Great Outdoors. Set up in 38 FOW. I didn't see anything on the vexilar all afternoon, but Jim managed one about 4 lbs. He had a few more on his graph, but couldn't get them to bite. Where I set up, the water was cloudy...which was weird.

Anyhoo, the main story was wind!! Snow was blowing out there and drifting vehicles in!! Was that snow ever deep coming off the Van Vac landing! There were a few people stuck out there...and we ended up pulling one of my neighbors out wink.gif

Jim, should we plan to get out there again next Sunday?? I am sure you will be itching to try out your new toys! I think Saturday I am going to get up somewhat early and go after some Rainbows and Splake...give 'em one last try before the season ends. I am sure Sunday will work for me. Let me know whats up!

Justin,

Yeah, let's try it again next Sunday. Talked to Mark Zup and a friend who were fishing La Croix today. Same thing as we saw, cloudy water in some places, clear others. They also saw the same thing on B Side last Wed. I'll call the DNR tomorrow and see if they can figure out the clarity stuff. confused.gif

Justin,

You are right it was windy. I didn't have much luck either, and didn't see much on the vexilar. I lost one on my outside line with minnow on it, the hole drifted shut and reel froze up etc. I left about 2pm, I had enough of the wind. I talked with some guys by dollar island on the way in and no luck there either, at least they were out of the wind fishing on the east side of the island.

Not by a creek,we were about 150 feet from shore on the West end (Kaleva Bay) Justin and I were no more than 75 feet apart, his holes were almost the color of diluted vinegar, mine were clear.

Sounds great Jim!!!! We will get out and smoke them on Sunday! I am going to have a Trout Extravaganza this coming weekend- I'm pumped!!!

My plan is to get out Saturday Am for some Rainbows and Splake if the weather is somewhat clear. I am going to take my father-in-law out fishing Saturday (he needs a lesson! grin.gif). If the weather is cloudy or snowy, we will get on the Crappies. cool.gif Sunday morning, I will head out to Burntside-probably right where we were yesterday. When you get done with the store in the early afternoon, we can meet out there and try some new spots if you like. Going to be a great weekend-can't wait!!!

I don't think it should be tough getting out there with old red chev- I think the snow should settle down this week. Let me know what's happening out there, bud!

Sorry to hear that you didn't have much luck there-"Lucky Tuta"! I saw the guys out there by Dollar, but didn't go over there- I saw your truck at the landing. Well, we will just have to get 'em the next time. Make sure you stop by and say hello if you see us out there! Hopefully, the weather will cooperate this weekend!

I hate to say this Bro, but the Chev ain't gonna make it! frown.gif

I had to stop and back up 10-15 times to make it to where we were yesterday mad.gif and didn't think I was going to several times! confused.gif The top secret access is chained off, I plowed it from the lake back to the road, took almost two hours, but it's done. The auger and shelter are on the way, should be here by Wed. or Thursday grin.gif After that, Trout, look out every day until the closing smile.gif

With the "Top Secret Access" plowed, I chuckle at 2-4 more inches of sissy snow cool.gif. Going back today to dress it up a bit, but as of 6 pm yesterday, you could land a 747 on it grin.gifgrin.gif :grin

Hey Jim,

Good to hear you were finally able to bust through there! Will you be in the shop on Friday until noon? I am going to swing by for this weekend's bait supply on my lunch break. Dang work gets in the way of everything!

So, going through Van Vac out to where we were on Sunday is out of the question?

You can try it, but I'd have to say you're in trouble. I was out tonight dressing up the Top Secret LZ grin.gif and my tracks from yesterday (on our Sunday route)were almost gone with the new snow. mad.gif

We is! grin.gif I'll shut the shop down about noon, and we'll make our move to the "Super Top Secret Access" I checked the Van Vac landing tonight when heading home, and they have three nice roads plowed in different directions. Must have had a bull dozer out there to break them open laugh.gif

Did you end up getting the 9" 2 hp Jiffy stealth and the Otter Cabin? Sounds like your all set! Now all we need to do is smoke a few monsters!

Didn't get the 9 inch, settled for the 2hp 8 inch. I got a little nervous about my 99 pounds falling through the 9 inch hole in case I wasn't watching where I walked grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

      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.
    • mrpike1973
      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.    ; )
