      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 .

The Crew went Fishin Report - 5/18/07 (3 pics added)

7 of us hitup one our Rochester area reservoirs last night. It was a great evening for fishing. Temp was perfect and wind was wimpy.

Everybody caught fish both big and small. All plastics. None of us had live bait. We caught 1 white sucker, a few pumpkinseeds, several largemouth bass, ~40 gills, ~75 white crappies, and ~25 black crappies. Just about all our gills were at or over 8” with the largest going 8.75” and lots of bullish color in some and bellies on others. Nearly all our white crappies were total dinks, but they were fun. I went 6 casts in a row with fish, followed by 1 blank, then 4 in a row again (freelining a 2” pink/white Exude Twister). We had a dozen or so black crappies that were 9-10.5”

The preferred method of the gills was small plastics under a float (I used Culprit paddletails on 1/32oz collarless jigs). Often times they would hit it right as soon as the bobber stood up. I think the drop motivated them. Crappies took the same presentation and enjoyed the twister tail freeline as well.

All fish were released.

I saw loads of gill beds, but the fish were not actively on them last night. I’m not exactly sure why, but they could be found out a little deeper than their beds.

It was nice fishing with everybody last night. Several of these guys had never fished this particular body of water until last night, but I have a feeling they will all be coming back soon.

I lucked out on tics with NONE and was happy about that.

The Crew: Nate L, Shawn G, Ryan D, Alex W, and the Andies

The main thing that I noticed was that my crappie could have ate those bluegills.

went out there to give it a try again last nite with pretty good results, between my and my cousion we reeled in around 30 or so nice sunnys the biggest going just a hair over 9", only a few crappies though and they were dinks, as usuall for this body of water the crappies all came right at sunset, also had a few bass, the pink/white minimite with a waxie was what the gills wanted with all the crappies coming on blue/chartruse paddeltails, my cousion also did well with a black and gold floating rapala

I have to remain mysterious!! Don't want everyone to know that they are out there with an expert, and for sure can't let on that I am an expert! It is all part of my master plan! grin.gif

      Went and tried a new spot... 3 snacky cats. One of them took my rod straight into the river and I had to dive in after it. Good times.
    • mrpike1973
      I use the Daiwa ct r also have 2 of them best out there in my opinion.
    • FishinCT
      Pretty good for me from Monday through Wednesday. Found them from 14-24ft depending on the spot but most fish came from under 20ft. Trust the electronics and motor around til you find a good school. They are hitting pretty well when you find them

      Best wishes for a happy retirement Ace.   I could never have done the guide thing even if I were a good enough fisherman.   It takes a special type of person to deal with all the different people... Congratulations on a job well done. 
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Terry, Sorry to hear that you have to retire after all of these years! I suppose It will be my turn to join you and Tommy before to many years also. See you on the water!! Cliff
    • TomWehler
      Congratulations on job well done sir. Your deserve time for yerself with Sandra an the whole younger crew. You have always been nice to me an a big help when I first seriously did the Muskie fish guide deal back summer 1996. We have had some fun times laughing online an in each other's boat over the years. Even boated a fish or three an coined a few major phrases still used in today's ever so silly online Muskie fish market.  Good stuff that I think only you n I could muster up and never take any of it seriously. Truely makes me smile clear to my middle all the junk we talked about an did. You are a good man Terry and welcome in my boat any time. Anytime. Ya done good and will not soon be forgotten. Thanks for being my friend on or off the water. The name fits as you really have been "The Ace"on our sweet Vermilion.   Still no fish round my docks but Bonnie, Polar Bear Boy an myself always have enjoyed your company. Yer the best in many ways my friend.  Thanks. Keep on Rocken!   Tommy.       PS.    I will continue to keep the Zombie Horde in check.    ; )

      I hope you enjoy your retirement!
    • seifjr
      Keep the reports coming Curt, much appreciated.  Unfortunately, I'm not able to get back up there until September 22-25th., so it going to be tough keeping my mind on work and not LOW.  Are you just moving around in the basin until you mark a school of fish, and then jigging them?  I see all of your waypoints on the screen you showed, so those must be spots that have held fish at one time.
    • guideman
      Hey everybody, I have my last two guide trips on the 22nd and 23rd of August. A bad back and old age have taken their toll and I will retire from a job I have loved to do for the last 27 years.  I still enjoy it but unfortunately my body just can't take the pounding anymore. I'll still be out there fishing but no longer on a daily basis. I will miss all the regular clients I have had over the years and all the new people I have met that I can call my friends. Thanks to all of you that have shared the boat with me over the years, I hope you all had a good time. "Ace"   "It's just fishing man"
