      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 .

Anyone been out during the last couple days? We will be out and about all day tomorrow and wondering where a good place to start would be. Thinking of Pelican, and maybe White Earth. Hope the storms didnt mess with them too much.

Thanks leechbait, we have always done well there in the later summer months, but have never fished it "early" in the year. There are a few other lakes over in that are I wouldnt mind trying sometime. I don't usually fish in the area, I usually spend the weekends up on Leech, but have the chance for a day off this week and wanted to get out with ZachP.

White Earth is one of the most interesting lakes that I fish, so much structure I'll never find and remember all of it. Have a 10# 2 oz. walleye on the wall taken 5/31/1983, have been along on larger than that.

Tons of structure, same as Many Point. That would be a good lake to try also. It's tough not to pick up a couple off of that lake, In my experiance out there just find the structure ( many points ) and I always had my best luck slip bobbering or jigging until you find the right depths. Like I said it's not hard to pick up a couple but some nights are down right spectacular.

Been doing well off shore in current areas. Spot tail shiners are the bait of choice but it's slowing down. I've heard some reports that the eyes are moving into their summer midlake patterns already on some lakes. Haven't had the boat out much lately, but I'll be up to URL Friday with a fellow FM'er from Bemidji that I'm closing a loan for that day. Hope to hit the mother load of crappies, and maybe catch some eyes shocked.gif. Haven't been posting much, real busy at work and home.

I don't know what my deal is this spring, but I've been struggling big time. Yesterday was no better. A thunder boomer chased me off of E. Silent yesterday evening so I tried the night bite on Big C instead. I guess I should have just went home. confused.gif I only hooked one 20"er along with numerous smallmouth and way too many of those pesky rock bass. I was glad to see how well the new splashguards work though....can't believe I put that off so long.

I'm from Missouri and we spend 2 weeks on White Earth every year in late summer. Gets my fever up just hearing the name of the lake. Beautiful lake to fish!

Well, after some water intake problems.....we got out on White Earth by 10 am. The bite was good, the only problem was every fish we caught was 12 inches or less, never caught a eater fish. Swung over to Pelican around 4, we somewhat managed to save the day by putting three in the livewell that went about 16" and numerous 10 inchers. Nothing great but given the conditions it was somewhat expected. Hope to get a good three days of fishing in this weekend!

Awesome day on the lake. Went to Big Cormorant mid afternoon. Caught eleven walleyes. Some of the nicest fish I've gotten on that lake in a few years. Kept 16-18 inch fish and released a 24". Shiners in 20-25 feet of water. Northerns and smallmouth mixed in to keep busy.

      The OP was given the system by someone else who was having problems with it. @TNFL If the above statement is correct, try it on your system and see if the fuse blows.  The problem may have been on the other person's rig.   Is it worth contacting the manufacturer for tech help or sending in for testing/service?
    • Wheres_Walter
      Sunday and Monday we caught lots of 15-16" fish at 12-14 FOW.  All on Chartruese jigs with half a crawler.   A couple in the high teens and one 21" as well.  
    • Wanderer
      Leeches are somewhat seasonal and not as prevalent later in the open water season (now).  It's the nature of the bait. Vados would be my first call between the Cities and Mille Lacs but you could always try calling a few shops on the southern side of the lake.

      Back in the old days..... before I retired and we used to come up labor day, I used to fish steep breaks into deep water.  My favorite spot was the north/west tip of Schmidts Island.   There is a little flat than breaks into like 40 feet out in front, more or less, of the dock that goes with the little chalet style cabin.   There are probably other spots along that headolakes shore of the island that are good, so check it out with modern electronics.   I don't know if that area is still working or not.   Jigging raps might work there.  I used a rig with a pretty heavy sinker so I could tip toe over the rocks up and down the break.   Caught what was my PB walleye for a long time on that spot.   Neighbor got a 30 incher somewhere along there.  This is all historical, so maybe not much help anymore.  BTW I typically fished there in the evening.   Never really tried it during the day.

      Jeez no. I can barely remember the netting discussion, let alone which side that I was arguing! Yup, you can see us cruising past quite often probably intent on satisfying the little one's quest for some ice cream at Moosebirds. She loves Sue and Ron. I'll definitely wave or stop by if I see you. I'll be up the next two weekends.
    • Wakemup
      How do you guys like to fish the west end as we transition into September and early fall? My next planned time at the cabin will be Labor day, I'm sure it'll be plenty busy on the lake but hoping to find a few quiet spots in the mornings and evenings to do some walleye fishing.
    • leech~~
      Plus+1  The size seems to drop off late in the year. Last year bait shops I went to were selling Large as Jumbos and small as large!
    • RuddyDuck
      Reminder, meeting tonight at 7:00pm in Annandale and written comment period runs til August 28th. The email addresses for comment are on pages 18-19. Comment now or the days of fishing your favorite lake anytime you want, will be over! I’m sure this is coming to a county near you if this goes thru out here.
    • gimruis
      Not uncommon at all for this time of year.  I used to try and find some regularly around Labor Day and always ran into problems.  I think its just the nature of the bait business.
    • BringAnExtension
      Does anyone know where I can get some jumbo leeches between the Twin Cities and Mille Lacs?  I would even settle for large.  There seems to be a shortage of supply. Thanks!
