      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 .

I was walking the dog last night and saw a kid catch a walleye near the dam. I would say it was about 22-23". I said "Nice Fish" and he went down to the shore and lifted his stringer, the one he just caught was the small walleye. This was on Fountain, lots of boats and shore fisherman, so the word must be out. He said he was using floating jig and a leech.

Try below the dam. It is often very good when water is flowing. Use a Mr Twister. Or even better try a floating jig head with a big shinner minnow add a sinker about 10'' up. Let it drift with the current.

The 22"er was the small one? I thought the new state law was 1 walleye over 20" per person?

Any stringer like that should be turned in, if the lengths of the fish are legitimate.

I think the Game warden should do a little more investigating, anyway we really should have a slot on them, i wonder if they were caught on the lakeside or down in the channel area, i also can tell that most of the parents ive seen don't know much about the regulations and sportsman like conduct! ill put money on it that some people down there are keeping more than one over 20"

The guy I saw was on the lake side. There have been a lot of people fishing there. I did see the game warden at the boat landing so maybe he is watching. You are right about the 20" and over fish, most people either don't know the law or don't care.

thats nothing i seen a few take home little itty bitty walleyes that were only 10" home frown.gif that ticked me off too, so far i have taken home a few walleye in the 15" to 18" range to eat 3 here and there, if i didnt catch them i would starve to death. considering low cash in the pocket.

      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
