      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 .

Little Boy - Wabedo Reports?

Recommended Posts

Cobra

I'm not big on the opening day circus, so I spent the weekend primarily getting chores out of the way so I can get on the water after the circus pulls out of town. That doesn't mean I'm not curious about hearing reports on what went on or is going on out there! Thanks in advance for your postings.......

Things are still the same. I fished Wednesday night and Thursday. Caught 11 walleyes but only 4 were over 14 inches and they were just over. The rest were around 12. Seems that the females have not put on the feed bag yet after the spawn. Seems a bit strange with the warm weather. You would think that they would be going by now. I did have one nicer fish on Thursday afternoon but she threw the hook. (yeah, I know the big ones always get away...)

The muskies are moving. Had one around 24 inches chase my crankbait when I was casting off a dock. Actually boated a 28 incher that hit a rainbow on a spinner.

I had some decent luck tonight. Boated 10 walleye, 8 13-14", one 19" and one spawned out 25" female, all of which were released. Big shiners on an orange and yellow jig took them all.

Fishing should be pretty good when you get there. Ray and his wife are very nice people and Ray really knows Wabedo, so squeeze him for current conditions and suggestions. Have a great trip. I live accross they bay from them.

A neighbor and I ventured out to LB for about an hour on Saturday night to find gale force winds blowing straight down the lake and upper 30's to low 40's temps. I think the windchill must have been in the 20's. We drift fished (probably too fast) the 17-10 foot range and caught 2 and missed a number of fish that were tail taggers in the fast drift. I would have set a drift sock out, but hate to do it that shallow and with our trip being short and with the cold temps..... Well you know..

Last weekend the water was 59.5 just about everywhere on LB and there was no problems going between Wab and LB thru the channel. All size boats were going back and forth. Also, fishing was great!

wondering how you did over the weekend. This BB has been pretty dead. Had some panfish luck near the weeds and some walleye on Lindy Rigs and crawlers nothing on leeches. Don't fish for northern but caught a few on the spinner action in front of crawlers. Anyone else? Or is it so good you won't report? Keep you knot tight and your line fresh.

Spent the past 7 days up there and didn't do very well at all. Some small northern. Didn't see a muskie. 2 walleye. Also fished Wabedo, Boy & Mule w/ very little luck. Must be bad fishing as there is no chance it is my fault grin.gif

Dances with Walleye

I'm going to be in the area for a week (My Bachelor Party is the weekend of August 18th) I was thinking about hitting Wabedo the Day before... Does/can anyone give me any tips...

I'd like to get into a Musky or some Walleye if I could... But Smallie action would also be fun...

As I understand it... From where I'm coming from the I'll be launching out of the South Landing on Wabedo.

Any help is appreciated!

Thanks!

Considering going back to Wab/LB in late September for muskies. How was the fall muskie bite last year?

We hit it the weekend after the big coldfront in mid-October and only raised one fish. Didn't feel like we got to see what Wab/LB is capable of so we're debating a return trip or heading elsewhere. Thanks in advance.

      Where's the best place to get bait at Vermillion?? Is Hoodoo the best access to fish big bay? The girlfriend and I are going to come up for a day trip tomorrow...Thanks for any help.

      I believe that there is a campsite or picnic area in the bay just South of the S-Curve  located adjacent to the WMA, I believe that Green Herons and Blue Herons nest in the trees there! Cliff

      Hope everyone had a great summer season of fishing and otherwise, and here's to hoping the fall season is going well.  I'm planning to get some grouse hunting in while up in a couple weeks and noticed Pine Island has a WMA on it.  Figured if I had time, I can take a quick ride out to there and have fun walking around on an island WMA.  Does anyone have any input on difficulty of beaching a boat somewhere along the shoreline on the north or south side, if even possible?   Thanks for the help and advice this year from everyone I talked to on here.  Looking like I may miss out on hard water this year and will have to put cracking that nut off until next year.

      Any thoughts, opinions on the new lighted jigs from tundra tackle. Anyone seen them in any store. I could only find on-line. https://www.tundratackleco.com/collections/frontpage

      Northwestern and central Minnesota have elevated fire danger due to sparse rain, high winds and lack of humidity. This means that open burning may be restricted in certain counties. The Department of Natural Resources urges Minnesotans to use caution while burning yard waste or leaf piles outdoors and to check the burning permit website for information.  “During fall, we know that residents and property owners will be taking care of leaf and brush piles,” said Casey McCoy, DNR wildfire prevention supervisor. “Piles can smolder undetected for several weeks under the right conditions. Windy, fall days can reignite these piles.” On average, Minnesota issues approximately 43,250 burn permits annually. When weather conditions warrant it, state fire team leaders may turn burning permits on or off. To determine whether burning is allowed, Minnesotans should regularly check their county burning restrictions. Residents may need to find alternatives to burning such as composting or hauling brush to a collection site or wait until it is safer to burn. “If you do decide to burn yard waste or leaf piles, do so when there is less wind,” said Linda Gormanson, burning permit coordinator. “Instead of burning your yard waste and potentially causing a wildfire, compost or chip your yard waste or bring it to a collection site.” Burning restrictions do not apply to campfires; they are still allowed. Clear an area around the campfire, watch it continuously and make sure it is out cold to the touch before leaving. Fire danger can change quickly. Check the Minnesota Incident Command System site https://goo.gl/W686km for fire behavior conditions. For questions about burning restrictions, check the DNR page at mndnr.gov/burnrestrictions or call your local Forestry office. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Lots of boats on the river daily here in LF now.  Select people are hitting good pods of fish and catching well.  Flows, though still Very swift, are slowing.  Fish are becoming a little more scattered, more fish are being caught away from shore and away from prominate structure. Minnows and tubes pulling most fish.  A few nice fish here and there most are falling in the 15-17 inch range. Good luck out there.

      Rivers are so under fished in this state.  People seem to gravitate towards lakes all the time and avoid rivers but the reality is that rivers, large and small, have awesome fishing.
