      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 .

First off want to say hi this site is very good ive been reading a lot of the old posts good way to get some information. I was just wondering what your guys favorite lure choices are for this time of year so i can start loading up the tackel box. We'll be fishing walleyes first, then go after some snakes. Last time i was at Winne i still used a Snoopy pole but remember catching huge panfish. Staying at Williams Narrows if you want to include your favorite spots on the water for this time of year i wont mind wink.gif I was also wondering how hard is it to find the mid lake humps?

you could be rigging the humps and bars or jigging them with a shiners if there is some left or there will be some fish at the emerging weeds but I htink your best bet will be minnows or leeches out deep

Lots depends on the weather and water temps, if there still hitting jigs try these along the weed edges

Rainbow, Parrot, Bubblegum, Watermelon, and Parakeet all work. Day to day they may prefer one over the other so carry some of each with you if one dosen't do the trick switch colors

I'm staying at the Winnie Dam Federal campground on June 14th to the 16th. I haven't fished Winnie since I was about 10 years old, so I'm really looking forward to it.

mostly a snell and maybe a bead snell lengths vary depending on the day

      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

      These are legal aliens.  Glad you enjoyed your lunch.

      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.
