      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 will be heading up to baby lake in less than a month and was wondering what the fishing report was. Looking to catch a big walleye, so what will be the best bet to do so in mid June.

Your best bet for a big walleye would be to go to Woman or Leech....

I would agree... Baby has a fair share of smaller fish, and the large ones that are there are so few and far between that you'll be fishing a long LONG time to get one... My largest in 27 years of fishing the lake is roughly 22 inches.

Woman or Leech would be my place to go as well for walleyes...

Joe...how many days left? I've got 9 left after today... You up this weekend?

2 years ago, I was on Baby for Musky Opener with my brother and his room mate. As we were working our way through some bays, we could see schools of walleyes on the bottom in 17 feet of water. Of course, we didn't have any walleye gear with us, so I went back to the cabin to pick it up. By the time I got back, the wind picked up a little and we weren't able to see the schools anymore. We did manage to pick up a few with jigs and shiners, but we were more interested in Muskies. We really didn't have that great of luck with muskies so we decided to go to another area lake for some action..... Anyway, after the sun set and we were done muskie fishing, we decided to go back to Baby and troll Shad Raps. WOW!!!! I have never experienced anything like this in my life. We boated 29 fish in an hour and a half trolling in 3-6 feet of water with #5 Perch Shads. We had triples on three times! We also boated two fish over 30 inches! So I guess my point is sometimes the big and best fishing is right under your nose, you just need to sniff it out. Don't get me wrong, you would probably have a little better chance with a trophy on Woman or Leech, but there are other lakes that produce just as well!

Lake Dr-

We will be there this weekend. Would love to know the area you had luck w/the walleys's trolling Shad Raps? 3years ago, around this time of year we had great luck catching Crappies on Mann but have not seen any the last couple of years. Has anyone had any luck for crappies on Baby/Man?

Just fish the shallow sand after dark with #5 shad raps. They didn't seem to move really shallow until a couple hours after dark.

I have a place on Girl Lake and my brother and I are avid Muskie hunter's.We always try to make time to go to Baby. Last year on Father's day I started off catching a 22" smallie,3 muskie's(biggest 42")along with 16 follows and the last cast of the day(9:15pm) using a sucker colored 12" Suick a 30 1/2" walleye.Well it is that time of year again, and I again will be on Baby. Woman and Girl have been good to me,but Baby just changes things up!

Baby is a heckuva small lake. Last year, Walker DNR Fisheries had one of their highest ever (for that office) walleye gillnet catches on that lake. Throw in the smallmouth and the very abundant musky and you have a heck of a fishery. Walleyes are really cooperative early season. Try in front of the girl scout camp in about 15-20 feet.

Lots of great musky spots. I haven't been on that lake without at least getting a follow. Can you say that about many musky lakes? They aren't the largest sized fish, but they make up for it in numbers.

Good luck on Baby.

      I noticed this spring that the higher end Shimano Stradic and others have eliminated the ability to back reel (no reverse) which I believe is a huge mistake, I don't like it!    any others have comments?

      Went up north grouse hunting it was fun. I must say having a dog makes it better.  This weekend is duck opener and I am jacked up for it.

      The public launch at The Landing on the west end stays open until the ice sets in, but they do pull the dock sometimes around the end of October / beginning of November.

      Just curious if people are finding fish moving into fall patterns yet or still finding them in more summer locations?  I've been finding good sized panfish in deeper water myself around more mid lake structure. Most of the lakes I've been on are still pretty green with algae and weeds.

      Captain Acorn, I use Gamagatu  octopus hooks. Size 4 for crawlers and size 2 for minnows. Red, black, chartreuse, and pink , mostly red and black. I use orange and green glow soft beads at times. (Worked today!) Cliff
