      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 tried to get Tim Watson to guide me on June 24th but he is booked. Does anyone reccomend any of these guides below that has the same reputation as Tim and Wade. I do believe Wade is also booked that day. I can call but i want someone that has a good reputation. It will be my wife, daughter and self. Do any of these guys have websites?

Not sure about any of the people you listed but if you're looking for a really fun day of guided fishing get ahold of Don at Sand Point Lodge. His son does guided trips up into Little Eva and Captain Tom lakes off of the Namakan River. It was very reasonable, I believe $90/person for the day, which includes the boat shuttle from the lodge up to Lady Rapids on Namakan River a shore lunch, gas, bait, etc. When you get to Lady Rapids they load your gear into a van a drive about 5 minutes to a short downhill portage into Little Eva. You can either fish Little Eva or portage into a creek where they have another boat setup to run into Captain Tom. I believe the $90/person is for the Captain Tom trip and it's $60/person for the Little Eva trip. We did the Captain Tom trip last year and caught 150 walleye in under three hours. Then he cooked up a nice shore lunch and we all took a limit home. We just got back from a memorial weekend trip into Little Eva that we booked with Don again. Four of us stayed in Little Eva for 3 days and fished Little Eva and Captain Tom and we caught 200-300 walleye. We used about 20 doz. minnows and then we were even nailing them on artifical baits like Gulp. If you need contact info let me know and I can get you it. Very nice people, and incredible fishing. The only other way to fish these lakes is to fly-in and that'll cost some big bucks. Since you're in the area and looking for a guide, this would be a really fun time for little $$$$. They said they have yet to have a group go in on one of these trips and not catch 50+walleye a day.

Fishingfarmer and wingnut, you both have mail.

Squirrelbait, I apologize if I hijacked your post. frown.gif As far as the guides you've listed I've never had any experience with any of them so i can't help. The only guide I've used is the one I've mentioned above.

I'll be camping in the Blind Pig Island area about 10 days from now, just West of Lady Rapids . . . did you fish the Namakan River itself much . . .and if so, what were the results there? Don't think I'll make it to Little Eva. smile.gif

Cozzene,

No we didn't fish the river at all. My brother did fish the river on Candian opener, and didn't have much action at all in our usual spot. He mentioned that there was hardly any current coming out. We usually fish tar point and have trouble anchoring there because of the swift current. This year, however, there was no current at tar point, at least not at the levels there typically is. But with all the rain we had recently, the current may be moving faster. When we boated out from Lady rapids on Monday the 28th around noon, there wasn't one single boat in the river. We did see one of Nelson's guide boats at tar point though, but that was it. If I were you, I'd try Blind pig channel, troll the north shore line in the channel west of the island in the channel. We usually do pretty well there on memorial weekend.

      use caution on the lakes in southern mn  there is a lot of lakes that have one or 2 spots of open water.  with that said where ive fished there has been a solid 5-6 inches as of yesterday  clear, cedar.cannon,elysian, circle.  i would use a spud bar to check if your going where people havent gone yet.

      Please stay off blue it is not good ice! Baxter is the only lake I walked but there is a bad spot out and to the left of the access. Where don’t find it. Stay east on Baxter the west is bad
    • monstermoose78
      Call search and rescue cause someone will go in on blue! It’s bad news out there. Baxter is the only lake around you would catch me on and just stay to away from the west side of the lake.
