      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 .

Well went up to Riverbend Resort and fished the reef 22.5 miles out. we had two house between 6 of us. the first day was a little slow, we got between 35-45 fish on the first day. nothin real big just a bunch of nice eaters, and a few jumbo perch. on the second day they moved us to some better water. as soon as we got to the house it was fish on. my house did the the best, it was non stop action, all the fish were over 14". my buddy did get a 29.5" eye and 10 mins later a 38" pike. same hole same jig. the eye was the fattest 29.5 i have ever seen. we were fishing in 26-32ft of water. glow white and gold jigs where the best with shinners. it was a all around good trip. the resort cleaned up the guides from last year and what a bunch of great guys this year. if it wasnt for Big Al and his tips for us we would of never done that good. i will get some pics up for u guys.

Beav: Thanks for the report. I'm headed back on Wed afternoon for the 4th, and last, trip for this year. Sounds like the fish are on. Big Al....what a character...he can definitley make for a fun day. Did he tell you the story about the shark when he was guiding in Hawaii? If not be sure to ask him next time you're up.

Nice Pics, thanks for posting.

New Yankee: I thought by now you were far enough up the food chain, where you could kind of set your own schedule LOL...14 more months for me and then maybe 8-9 times a year. Good luck and hang on. Bill

Bob, yes it will be nice not to have to be somewhere every morning. I'll still come back to the agency a couple of days a week to work with the new buyer (my secretary) but I can get lots of fishing in in 5 days per week. Bill

      Trolling or casting jigs and spinners(silver or gold are best for pike IMO) near the weeds, in bays, etc, cranks, and top water buzz baits around weedy areas are how I get most of my pike. Use a leader. Orange jig heads with a sparkly yellow twister tail and a jumbo leech gets me more pike than any other method. Your mileage may vary.

      I had lunch there a couple of days ago. Great service and good food! I did not see any illegal type aliens there at that time!  Cliff

      Sorry, don't remember TJ Hooker.  Besides I make it a practice to avoid hookers....  (rim shot)

      This year?   It is new this year.... Apparently a lot of businesses are having trouble hiring seasonal employees.

      I have only been there a few times, but that doesn't make any sense based on my visits.

      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.
