      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

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.

      Sorry to hear. Being the guide-dad you want everyone to have fun. No fish on worms? Had to be the Eclipse!
    • JBMasterAngler
      Trip didn't go as planned. I had been asking some questions on here to get some info/ideas for the trip. Greatly appreciated all the stuff you guys shared with me. Unfortunately most of it wasn't in the plans  Camped at fall lake, as this was the first time my wife tagged along in a few years, and I thought his would be the most family friendly. After getting setup on Sunday, I launched the boat and goofed around for a bit, but didn't catch anything. My daughter was using worms, and she didn't even get a nibble. Is there not much for bass in fall?   Monday we had to spend some unexpected time in town, making certain purchases. Made it to snowbank late. Trolled for lakers, but only marked ciscoes. Once we started fishing for bass, we caught a few, but then the rain fell. Had it just been me and the 2 older kids, we could have fished through it. But with my wife and the youngest, it wasn't going to happen!   Pretty much the same thing happened on Tuesday. Went to burntside, but the lake was too windy. Went back to town, let the kids play at the park, then had lunch at the boathouse (I highly recommend the motorboat burger). Then we decided to keep it close and simple, and went to miner's pit. Weather got the best of us again. At least this time, my wife caught a few fish. No trout though.   Sometimes there's more to camping trips than good fishing though. We still had lots of fun, and I'm already making some notes for my next Ely trip, which I don't even know when will happen.

      Tommy, can tell by your posts and photos that your dogs are very special to you and Bonnie.  I shed a tear or two while reading this.  I got a kick out of you telling me here after I saw you driving through Cloquet a couple years ago.  You saw my dog riding co-pilot and you mentioned that you also had a dog in the passenger seat (can't remember which one) and Bonnie in the back seat riding with the other dogs.  Good Stuff! Take care, Bill

      I pop in here a few times lately for some humor for myself, it is hard to do. No, very hard to do...but this sight makes me smile sometimes so here ya go...FYI.   Moe Rock passed August 14th  ~  4 days before what would have been his 11th birthday.
      He was our rock in many ways and was one of the smartest retrievers we have ever had in our family in 30 some years.
      If you knew Moe Rock you can understand, remember. He was so strong an fought the cancer just over FOUR MONTHS....
      Pills n tests an more pills an more tests...until well CANCER SUCKS.
      In the end the cancer wins no matter how hard he fought or how hard his TEAM fought with him and for him. Bonnie an I, the special vets an techs at Osceola Animal hospital and the top doc's, students and assistants and at the U of M vet center tried very hard and long to help him in his battle. He never changed, stood tall an strong, bright eyes an devilish smile.
      Truth is we only stayed a couple steps ahead of the cancer that took him that day at 5 PM.
      He was strong right up until he passed with Bonnie an myself holding his paws an making his passing go easy. Bother Polar Bear Boy looking on also.
      Don't make any of this easy saying this, but he was not doing good at 5 am Sunday morning as that cancer stuff just jumped him good this weekend an well,  he lost.
      We never gave in, nor did he. This weekend at the cabin he tried to enjoy himself, DID enjoy it all.  He swam, couple dock jumps, we fished morning runs an sunset, did boat rides, worked on some shore n boat small projects an ate pretty dang well. He was fine until bedtime when we knew an HE knew something was happening.
      Not good. CANCER SUCKS!
      We had a great time, Moe only showing to Bonnie an myself an his Brother Polar Bear Boy he was not feeling to good in the evenings the last week. Very sad. Never forget Moe Rock or his up north name of NoMoeToe given to him by long time guest in my boat from Capser Wyoming the late Mary Cob and his Chisago City area name the Fire Chief gave him of ThreeToeMoe. He was not only special to me but to a host of people in this area an on or around Lake Vermilion for his whole life.
      Good boy, darn good boy. One regret is not everyone that knows of Moe or knows him only online did not get to meet him in person.
      You would have enjoyed him in many ways as we all did.
      Loveable, big nut, sweet, smart, goofy, odd and a total tick that like to start fights with this brothers an then leave them to settle it while he went an ate their food or got best seat on casting deck my big black boat.
      Yup, Moe Rock was a Tick.   Any way....very sad are we, but he fought like tuff darts, a good long fight.
      Never whined a bit, did as was asked an stayed pretty much himself the whole time until that Sunday morning really.
      Not once showing anyone not in family he was sick, real sick. Still loved his truck rides, belly rubs, swimming his pool, wratling with me n Bear, watching TV, Playing on Kendel or computer with Bonnie an just plain being Moe to his brother Bear Boy...big smiles. Fishing, how he love3d fishen...mostly topwater of any kind, but he would go with me anytime, anytime....true fish hound was he, our sweet Moezy.
      I did not tell anyone about Moe rock but Mom Joanne as figured he might kick cancer to the curb an well..........
      Never gave up hope but most times cancer wins in retriever hounds, even our sweet Moe Rock.
      PEACE!
      Very Sad. Now running with his fellow Mallard Island Marauders that crossed over before him, Barney Toonder, Homer J., Bailey, Beckey, Buddy.....plus Jack n Ev the Kats.
      Some good party.....good food, big smiles and all that go with them....all very special. Lov ya Moe......I miss you my boy....rest easy until we meet again.   Keep on rocken!   Tommy
