      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 .

What pool? I am gonna guess 4...Easiest thing is to go to Everett's for any and every thing you need.

Check around online to find more info. on his place. He has a launch, bait shop with bait and all the jigs, ringies and blades you will need. $7 to launch, but worth it in advice since that place changes daily.

Good luck, the bite is gonna get better in the next few weeks.

It is on the WI side of the river. Take a left right after the 2nd bridge. Then a left at the stop sign. Then a left at the resort sign. I don't know the phone #. If you do a search online you should be able to find it.

Good luck and let us know how you did!

Jurban,

when you cross over from minnesota, you will see a public access on your left. Just past that is county road vv I believe. It says hager city with an arrow left on the sign. when you pass the strip club, there is a bridge, stay to the right. You will stop and take a left, going under the bridge, about a mile down you will see a sign for the resort. take a left down the hill and you are there. They have minnows and plastics, along with some advice. Well worth the $7 launch fee grin.gif. Looks like I will be down there as well on tuesday. need to make up for yesterday. verrrrrrry slow bite on friday. tongue.gif

I always land on the Alma side of Wisc. Your Mn license will do just fine.

Troller, the bite would depend on how much money you are willing to spend for bait. shocked.gif

I am passing on the river tomorrow. The wind will be a little to much for me 20-30. I am installing a (used) new depth finder on the boat. To better see the fish i wont get. smirk.gif.. good luck to those who go out.

Three of us went out today, we gave her hell for about seven hours and did not catch a thing.

It really sucks when you are marking all the fish in the world but cant get them to bite.

I did not se anybody else catching anything so all in all not a bad day.

It was sure better than work!

Thanks for all the help guys

Everets was nice as well.

He said the bite was slow and it was.

But was worth the money for a first timer like me.

Thanks again

      I've been by a time or two trying to figure out which place is yours.   I was out on wakemup last night too.   Got nothing, on crawlers.  Started out at merry go round, went to "picnic island" (little island east/south of taylors).  rigged along edge of those two humps in like 18-25 feet.   Musky guys were coming so I turned.  They turned too, chunking baits in the vicinity of my boat.   Then some guys in a pontoon pulled up and anchored in front of me  and threw out bobbers.   Fished a while longer, and it was getting sort of dark so went home.   Weird.  I've been on those humps a bunch of times this year, and suddenly I get company.   And, even though it is a pretty big area they gravitated to where I was.  I'll be out today too, so if you need help with supervision, let me know.    But I will drive by to check out the new construction.

      Been getting a few on the weed line, early am when there's a little breeze, since the surface temps started coming down. That was about this month's full moon, for me. A very slow troll, fishing vertically, & just a 1/16 oz. jig.

      Thanks for the update cigarguy- were you lindy rigging?
    • CigarGuy
      Neighbor and I went out in Wakemup for a couple hours tonight and got a 18" and 19" and had a nice one come unbutton on the way in....Leaches and crawlers.  That's good for me!  20 - 34' off a break line.  Del, working on the last flight of the steps-was looking for you to stop by and help!

      I used lead core on Friday and had a ball catching walleyes of all sizes.  I started in the morning and stayed out until I just got tired in the afternoon.  I probably pulled in as many as 20 or so.  My formula was:  90 feet of line, 19-24 ft of water, #5 rattling split deep shad rap.  Silver color.  I kept it right at 2mph.  I also did much better when I pumped the rod in a regular cadence.  Keeping it in the rod holder didn't produce near the fish.

      Ace, I hope you enjoy your retirement.  I hired you one time and my boy and I had a good time.  I appreciate the hard work you did on putting us on fish.  Good Luck and maybe "Little Ace" can continue the family business some day!   Michael Theis
