      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 .

Memorial Weekend

Recommended Posts


Hope everyone had a safe and happy Memorial weekend. So who all had the chance to put the boat in the water and spend some time out on the lakes?

Here in the Blackduck area today it's pretty windy (winds out of the east but some gusts at over 20 mph), but yesterday turned into a pretty decent day, with calm winds here and sunny. Quite a few of our anglers hit Blackduck Lake to reel in walleye, and the bite has been doing really well. Fishing the bars in 8-16' of water, finding the past few days that leeches are the getting better hits than minnows or worms, slip bobber fishing with a jig or using a spinner.

Fishing the local lakes went pretty well for most, panfishing was more productive for our folks using night crawlers and casting into the shoreline, with many good size crappies and sunnies being reeled in. Benjamin Lake was pretty slow for the couple that tried it on Saturday reeling in only one rainbow trout, but the winds and the on again off again rain didn't help much.

So let's hear how everyone did and if they got to have a fresh fish fry this weekend!

Had a productive weekend on the area lakes. Friday we hit Pimushe and Turtle River, had good results of walleye and some pike. The bonus was my 8 pound dog fish

Saturday we hit blackduck and had good success on walleye. Another successful weekend up in north country!

We had a great weekend up at the Drake. The weather stunk on Saturday, but the fish didn't seem to mind. We hit an area lake in the am to early afternoon and caught some bull gills. We then hit the 'Duck for some slip bobber walleye action. We caught over 30 fish in 4 hours! What a blast. The front that moved in over night Saturday killed our gill bite, but the walleyes remained active on the 'Duck as we had another steady night of bobbering action. We fished in 3-6 fow for the gills and windward shorelines in 10-16 fow for our walleyes. Hope everyone else had as much fun as us!! grin.gif

      Did a few off season projects waiting for Ice. - Underwater camera, Fish Finder, Wheel house mods and the latest converting a 2 cycle Jiffy Lite 90 to an ION battery auger. Got the auger off Craiglist for $10, Drill for $15. Second stage of gear box is a 5 to 1 reduction so got the auger blade to turn at about 250 RPM which I feel is an ideal speed. Gear reduction also doubled the torque of the motor drive. Planning to use the Dewalt 20V ION battery as I already have charger and now converting one of the 1.5 AH batteries to either 9 or 12 AH.  If anyone needs a mid 80's Jiffy Lite 90 motor and clutch PM me. Has great compression, never tried to start it.  Price somewhere between free and a gift. If you did a project this summer, would you care to share them? DJ ION Auger HB.mp4  << Click link for video

      You may want to consider #3 ; Rapala Jiggin Raps, or drop shoting. They both have been putting some nice size suspended slabs topside under some breezy conditions as of late. Fishing sure was downright epic the last week for all species. To bad it looks like "global warmering" is coming to an end for this year, was awesome while it lasted...... Those are some decent perch panman54. LOL!

      Pretty remote and flat back there. I haven't been on that exact shoreline but I bet you can pull a boat up there quite easily.

      I didnt hear how the second day went yet.  The long term average is 8% success up to 10% during the 2 deer era.  so 5.7% isnt bad for day 1.   Cooler weather will hopefully help us second weekenders. I havent seen much for rubs or scrapes here yet, should be starting any day.

      HooDoo Point, Everett Bay public landing, or the Casino are all good landings if you want to fish Big Bay. The Y-Store or  the Food and Fuel in Tower both have good bait. Cliff

      Anything from moccasin point west can be pretty spotty with Verizon. If you're on big bay it's tough to beat

      I just read an article in the paper recently, that pout fest might be relocated to Lake Bemidji in 2018. It never gave a reason why though. Anyone know anything?
