      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 went up for one of my trips to Fish Lake this weekend. Spent Friday and saturday night camping in the rain and all day Saturday on the water.

It was a strange day on the water, alot of weather changes, wind changes, time with no wind at all, alot of fish but quality fish were hard to come by but we did find some.

After 11 hours on the water on Saturday we probably boated 50-60 fish of all sorts (walleye, perch, pike, rock bass, sucker). One nice walleye (18-19")came early during the rain from 3 feet of water on a jointed rapala in a firetiger pattern. Pike came from shallow bays and weedlines on a variety of baits, they weren't picky.

Once the sun came out the wind died and so did the fishing, we did manage to hook up with one nice pike on a buck tail but it came unhook near the boat. We also had a nice 3-4 pound walleye take a hit at that same buck tail in 2 feet of water along a bed of reeds. The thing acted more like a bass then a walleye. Maybe it was that Wallass that the DNR was considering putting on license plates.

It took the rest of the day to figure out what the new pattern was for the walleye. They had moved from very shallower points (2-4 fow) back out into more traditional spots once the cloud cover came back. Ended up getting a few more smaller eyes (14"-16")around 8:30-9:00. We ended up keeping 3 fish so we could have a fish fry back at camp the rest were released. The last walleyes of the day came on a 1/4oz jig and a fat head minnow fished very slow, the fish would barely hit the bait, you would cast out and be bouncing it along back to the boat and you would feel very little extra weight and you would have a fish on, none of the little taping you get used to, real finicky for sure.

Well thats our day in a nut shell.

We fished FLR last night 06/05/07. One 18 incher and some cigars. Saw a couple of other guys doing about the same. Leeches and Minnows were both working. We were in 14-16 ft water. Also caught a bunch of big fat rock bass and a few perch.

      Low water continues to be the issue on the Red. Below the dams still remains sketchy so use boats at your own risk.  The fishing remains stable, similar to last week in that the fish are spread out but in the holes in the middle of the river.  Short 15-20 minute sits on spots keeping the bait fresh looking for the active catfish.
        Bait is still heavy to frogs and frozen suckers with goldeyes working some but it seems that frog and sucker are the best.  As water cools down I suspect fresh sucker will come into play as well.

      I used to have many fields but some guides came in and pay for the fields. I am down to 3 farms but they don't have any small grains this year. So I am going to take the early season off. As I know the geese will use some ponds to rest and I have access to them so I will wait until the regular season to pick off a few geese.

      That's what I planned on doing while I bow hunted but wasn't sure since I got one in spring if I could get another. Thanks

      I was marking various things, but I didn't note a correlation between marking something and catching the walleye.  Also was catching smallies on the same reefs, although maybe at a little different depth.   In fact I was surprised when the walleye hit.  Likewise the other one the next evening.

      Eden prairie purgatory lake is full of carp. You can see them from the dock or the bridge.

          Orvis has some awesome tutorials on their web sites. They teach at whatever level you are in flyfishing. I've gone there many times. They've also got an awesome app with fishing reports including wwater conditions, fly selection and hw to fish it.       Check them out and good fishing.

      I didn't fish any walleye this weekend- only bass. I would fish Friday and Saturday mornings from 530-830 and caught half a dozen largies in the 3-4lb range on a spinner bait. I just got my Garmin fish finder with sideview which will hopefully help me better locate the walleyes. Del, were you marking fish as you'd go over them?

      Latest Landing gossip...... First hearing in trial was july 25th.   Judge took motions under advisement. In the mean time, since none of the locals would work there, they imported a bunch of people on H2b visas as seasonal workers and put them up in a little house in Cook.  Charging them $285 per month.  Like 20 people in the house.   Now many have quit and found other jobs, and some also found other places to live.   They have to hang on since they need to wait until their scheduled airplane tickets.. which they also had to pay for.   That's the news from the Laundromat.... Believe it or so what.
