      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 .

Big Marine Walleyes

Recommended Posts

I'm going there pretty much just for pike and bass, but maybe try for walleyes just for sh*ts and giggles. How has the bite been so far this year? What methods/locations have been best for them?

Are there even walleyes in Big Marine? I mean its a pretty big lake but I'm not sure of how deep it is..... I don't think that Lake holds very much walleyes if at all. Mostly a panfish, northern, and bass lake in my opinon but if you can spot and catch eyes in there keep it to yourself.

I know the DNR stocks it quite often, and I have seen small eyes swimming around the boat dock. The lake does get up to about 55 or 60 ft deep. I'm well aware of the great bass and pike fishing...never fished for eyes there before so I thought I'd give it a go.

I was out on Big Marine bass fishing on Sunday. That cold front totally gave the bass lockjaw. Manged a dinky 6 inch bass on a 7 inch senko lol! I saw a bunch of people by the island, probably marking walleyes? I'm a bass, crappie guy.

Yep, there are. My bro got a bunch last weekend, but they were small. We got a few biggies a couple years ago, but we haven't tried it hard, so not sure. But they are there, and they get big. Good luck,

Well I got a late start to the day on saturday, didn't get on the water 'til past noon. By then you could see the thunderstorm off to the distance, I think that affected the fishing. All I could manage was 2 bass...my fiance caught 2 sunnies. Then the storm blew in and I headed to shore. Don't know how much total rain we got (or hail) but the bottom of my boat was filled. Didn't get a chance to fish for eyes. I'll be out of town all next week, but when I get back I'm coming back here for another crack at it.

With the inclement weather the big bass should be holding to structures deep, but then again they could be anywhere...

Big Wade and I went out yesterday early. Tried for some eyes around the island and didn't get anything. Started trolling and I got a small bass. We went around the south and west end trolling for Pike. Didn't manage any but Wade got a couple of bigger bass. Not a great outing for fish but it was nice to get to know another FM'er and hopefully go out fishing again. Was a nice day out so always a good time.

      Got some grouse and saw some nice coveys. The biggest was 6 birds but found couple groups of 5. That is always fun.

      we mainly jigged fatheads in front of their mouths. 2 weeks ago also and tried a few different times over 3 days this trip. water is still crazy low so I don't think many boats will be using access. Also tried a couple different plastics and some gulp. Probably ready to go crazy up there soon.  Last year at this time it was really good. Might get there once more before ice time but not sure.

      Been thinking about breaking out the Jiggin Raps, might have to give that a shot. It's been too crowded out there this weekend with MEA going on.

      Sounds good! May an oversized deer with obscenely large antlers find its way to you!

      Well the weather was pretty crappy but the fish were biting...Had to sort through but kept some for dinner. Caught a variety today, eyes,jumbos,crappie and a few smallies... rigging on or next to rocks worked best for us.

      hummm, hadn't heard a thing?

      Good luck. Maybe we will see you Friday. I will let you know how things are looking by us as the weekend goes by.

      I still hope it's double!  I just went over the map with my brother and talked about our options.  We have enough places to go for sure.  It's always fun planning and talking about past hunts. I put out the question to the other two guys about staying in camp vs the house.  We'll see what they decide.  I hauled our "cabin" home from Ely today so we should have plenty of room if they wanna camp.
