      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 .

We are arriving in the afternoon on 5/20 and want to know where Hardees and Rainy Lake One Stop are in reference to Island View. We'd like to fill our gut at Hardees and pick up a few items at One Stop if we can. Not to mention picking up a few last minute pointers.

Fishmeister - will you be at the Hardees on that Sunday?

Bill - what about you at the shop on that day?

WELL THANKS FOR STOPPING AT HARDEES, HOWEVER NO I WON'T BE THERE...WALLEYE SEASON HAS BEGUN, SUNDAYS ARE MY DAY OFF, AND IT HAPPENS TO BE MY 49TH BIRTHDAY. I'M GOING TO TRY & BETTER MY WALLEYE RECORD...AS ON MY 43RD BIRTHDAY AT 7:30 A.M. I LANDED A WALLEYE-11.7....SO I APPRECAITE THE BUSINESS IN ADVANCE & HOPE YOU HAVE A GREAT HARDEES EXPERIENCE & OUTSTANDING FISHING. RAINY LAKE ONE STOP SITS ABOUT 3 MILES ON HIGHWAY 11 EAST ON THE SOUTH(RIGHT) SIDE OF THE ROAD, CONTINUE ON 11 EAST ANOTHER 6 MILES & YOU WILL COME TO ISLAND VIEW.

No problem meister. Good luck with the opener. Just do me a favor and tell your staff to make my thickburger a little thicker and a little rarer and we'll be in business.

By the way - I have seen a couple of postings about H2O temps in the upper 50's in Black Bay/Rat Root area. We fished there a couple of years ago and did well. We are staying just across the canadian border on a private island (about 6 miles or so from Island View, between Pukamo Island and Nowhere Island). I am assuming H2O temps are drastically cooler in this area. What other bays near the area we are staying are dark like black bay and will have warmed?

Places like Haymarsh Bay, Commissioners Bay? My understanding is that the water on the northern side is a little clearer and may warm slower. True?

Thanks again for all the guidance over the last couple of months. I have been a regular on the site and visit it at least once a day. Call me a fishnut, but when your passionate about this sport, you will read anything to gain perspective on the water you are fishing.

I've done well in Grassy Portage and Duck Bay at that time of year.

I was out yesterday and the lowest reading I found was 49 near the Causeway. Rest of main North Arm was 51. Back bays were hitting 70 in extreme back ends but mostly low 60s.

      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.

      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
