      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 .

Fishing Report - 6/4 - 6/5

Fisherman For a Lifetime

Fished Winnie all day both days.

Water temp: 62-63 Degrees

Marked quite a few on the "big bar line" both days...

On 6/4, went to a lot of places on bars and did well - a catch and release day...

On 6/5, got creative in an area on the West side and it was "like taking candy from a baby..." Nailed them. Limited out in short order - all 15 to 15.5 inch Walleyes.

The Shiner fishermen were pulling up just small Perch.

The Launch came through where I was and they caught nothing but Perch, lucky it was a short period of time I did not catch one when the Launch was passing through or they would have been all over me. I hooked one shortly after he trolled by, so I turned my boat away from them and scooped it up without him seeing it.

Kept catching Walleyes on Leeches only.

Even though I am back here in Iowa and just have to read how you all are doing on Winnie, the memories are still fresh and its like being there!!! lol

Nice job of concealing yourself from the launch FFL. I know that feeling of being the first to start the action going and then everyone joins in. Most of the time its not bad and everyone can get their share, but there is always one or two that spoil the party!!!

Welllll... I better not say. It's kinda of a small area and Walleyes congregate there. It can be a feast...

Us old timers (yikes!) (I've fished Winnie A LOT since 1965...) know about it. Sorry, nice try though... wink.gif

I looked for your boat, but didn't see a red pro-v.

That's great! Sometimes they bite one one bait in an area and another bait a ways away.

The Shiner run has about started, so the Walleyes came in for them.

How 'bout the Fish Fly Hatch on Wednesday morning....

      This year?   It is new this year.... Apparently a lot of businesses are having trouble hiring seasonal employees.

      I have only been there a few times, but that doesn't make any sense based on my visits.

      I am headed to MN for my annual trip and wanted to target pike on leech. For the past 5-6 years I have been kayaking smaller lakes around the area but now I am back to having a decent boat for bigger waters. Used to fish the east side flats in Headquarters and Boy bay prior to my kayak days. Usual came earlier in the year as well. Bucktails on weedlines still my best bet or do you think crankbaits are the way to go just off weedlines? Better spots than others? Should be there a few days before / after Labor Day.

        I believe the  problem here is a hull with rocker.   At different trim and speed the hull does just that, rocks.   Normally you'd trim in, throttle up and once on plane, throttle back to cruise speed and adjust the trim out.    To be trimmed all in at WOT or even cruising speed would make must hulls plow water at the bow.   In the case with rocker you usually find the porpoise stops when you increase speed.   The fin might be enough to lift the transom up and stabilize it.   Let us know what you do and how it works.

      Went and tried a new spot... 3 snacky cats. One of them took my rod straight into the river and I had to dive in after it. Good times.

      I use the Daiwa ct r also have 2 of them best out there in my opinion.
    • FishinCT
      Pretty good for me from Monday through Wednesday. Found them from 14-24ft depending on the spot but most fish came from under 20ft. Trust the electronics and motor around til you find a good school. They are hitting pretty well when you find them
