      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 .

Calling Mr. Axel (or anyone) - I am going to be up in the area again for a week this year. I would like to get the boat trailer sandblasted/painted while I am there since my trailer just sits in the parking lot all week. I was just wondering if anyone in the area does this kind of work? THX

Be careful on how you promote a business, part-time or not, without being a sponsor. Thank you.

The trailer is for a 17' Basstracker. Not sure how to measure the trailer for size.

MT - I will email you.

TO - Sorry, did I put something wrong on here?

JD, you're fine but thanks for asking. Mountaindew was walking a thin line on some of the information in his original post, so I edited.

I hope you guys are able to connect.

MT - You have mail.

TO - Thanks, I did not notice the edit until after I posted.

I am going to be up there chasing walleyes on Tetonka from May 16-23rd. Hit the lake for the first time last year and after about a day had a good pattern going. Hopefully, I can get on another good bite this year. If anyone is in area during this week and would like to hookup just let me know. When my wife does not go out in the boat with me I usually have room for one.

JD, you'll have to keep me posted on what's happening. I'll be guiding down here May 18 - 20, so perhaps we can bounce some ideas off one another because you'll be a few days up on me. My cell # is 612-756-2184.

Mountaindew, no sweat. Thanks for understanding.

TO - Have your number written down and put in boat. I'll try to give you a ring Thur.night 17th or early Fri. 18th. When is too late/early to call? It would be fun to kick around what is working and what is not. I'm hoping same pattern will work this year as last however we all know it is never that easy.

Couple questions for you? How are the water levels up there so far? Has it ever been a problem getting between Tetonka and Sakatah?

How far a drive to Reel Fishing and Tackle from Waterville? I would like to visit the store with my wife and daughter one of the days we are up there. I can always use some new tackle (who can't) and sometimes find lures you don't see in other places. Also, would like to meet a few of the people there.

Thanks and really looking forward to the trip.

Sounds good. You can call up to 10:00 pm and as early as 5:00 am. I'll be fresh off a trip to Mille Lacs so we'll definitely be banging ideas off one another.

The water levels are decent right now but there's plenty of room for improvement. Personally, I've never had an issue going between lakes but anything more than an 18' boat could be a little challenging in a few places.

To Reel Fishing and Tackle from Waterville, you're looking at 15 minutes tops. Tell Joe, Matt or Katy I sent ya'.

Talk to you soon.

      Low water continues to be the issue on the Red. Below the dams still remains sketchy so use boats at your own risk.  The fishing remains stable, similar to last week in that the fish are spread out but in the holes in the middle of the river.  Short 15-20 minute sits on spots keeping the bait fresh looking for the active catfish.
        Bait is still heavy to frogs and frozen suckers with goldeyes working some but it seems that frog and sucker are the best.  As water cools down I suspect fresh sucker will come into play as well.

      I used to have many fields but some guides came in and pay for the fields. I am down to 3 farms but they don't have any small grains this year. So I am going to take the early season off. As I know the geese will use some ponds to rest and I have access to them so I will wait until the regular season to pick off a few geese.

      That's what I planned on doing while I bow hunted but wasn't sure since I got one in spring if I could get another. Thanks

      I was marking various things, but I didn't note a correlation between marking something and catching the walleye.  Also was catching smallies on the same reefs, although maybe at a little different depth.   In fact I was surprised when the walleye hit.  Likewise the other one the next evening.

      Eden prairie purgatory lake is full of carp. You can see them from the dock or the bridge.

          Orvis has some awesome tutorials on their web sites. They teach at whatever level you are in flyfishing. I've gone there many times. They've also got an awesome app with fishing reports including wwater conditions, fly selection and hw to fish it.       Check them out and good fishing.

      I didn't fish any walleye this weekend- only bass. I would fish Friday and Saturday mornings from 530-830 and caught half a dozen largies in the 3-4lb range on a spinner bait. I just got my Garmin fish finder with sideview which will hopefully help me better locate the walleyes. Del, were you marking fish as you'd go over them?

      Latest Landing gossip...... First hearing in trial was july 25th.   Judge took motions under advisement. In the mean time, since none of the locals would work there, they imported a bunch of people on H2b visas as seasonal workers and put them up in a little house in Cook.  Charging them $285 per month.  Like 20 people in the house.   Now many have quit and found other jobs, and some also found other places to live.   They have to hang on since they need to wait until their scheduled airplane tickets.. which they also had to pay for.   That's the news from the Laundromat.... Believe it or so what.
