      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 .

Fall Walleyes Anyone?

Recommended Posts

Was out last night with LJ on the Big O, started in the canal looking for some craps and what not, caught one [PoorWordUsage] and one gill, well, jimi did on a beetle spin, so he was pumped, then we motored to the lake and started fishing the break wall all the way down... nothing!! not even a bump all the way out... little breeze from the north, NE, pretty nice out there. The temp was 72.8 in the lake and 70.5 in the Canal, I thought it would have cooled down a little more.. guess not. Spotted no bait fish activity anywhere. the canal was a little colored up. Hopefully the cooler night temps coming up will help!!

but on a side bar to Tim And frank, I let LJ use the "Secret" when we got on the lake, and first drop down he smacked a perch!! He said he'd give you lessons on how to work it!! ha!! and i caught one too, but that was it, I forgot to bring the headlamps so we were off the water by 7. It was a nice time though, Might get out saturday night... we will see.

so pics are below from last night and some more fro the phone from what we caught during the summer!

fished from 3pm till 7pm and got a nice limit of jacks today. found them on one of my humps on the shoals and if you weren't right on top of it you didn't get a thing. The south / southeast wind played havoc with me and I had to keep re-anchoring to stay on it, I have to get an anchor for the back, it got to be a pain in the butt to keep pulling anchor just to get back on the spot.

Lee - Dude do you ever get skunked? Good job.. We marked some fish and they just weren't having it.. Weather was kinda weird with the eery overcast we had and very light sprinkles on and off. Way to go!!! How's the pop warner team doing?

Fished the north shore (20-22 fow) Saturday we picked up a couple nice jacks on fat heads. Tried the east shore yesterday with worms and didn't get anything. The water temp on the east shore was 76.8 yesterday.

Nice haul Lee!

LOL Tim, my day of being skunked is about 20 perch if I'm targetting them or 2 walleye's if I'm after them. The sunfish are HUGE this year and going to try and target them more this weekend. The temps when I was out was 71.2 and all fish came in 10' - 12' of water in or on weed edges fishing straight down with half a crawler in plain hook, small swedish pimple or a small spinner with beads on hook but the trick was using a 4"-5" piece of crawler hooked once hanging.

Pop-Warner is going great and the kids are starting to improve and build confidence in themself which is great plus they are having fun doing it which is helping a lot this year. The kids who are improving the most are the one's who wanted to quit on week 2 but we talked them into staying and they are loving it.

Almost time for the night eye's on shore and I got word they are getting them on the mid-lake shoals at dark and after dark which means they will start making their way into the shore shallows soon.

Rick was in 2nd place on first day and then drew some some partners that just weren't on the fish and he ended up in 47th and won himself a trolling motor worth $600. He said it was one of the best times and just riding in the pro's boat going almost 70mp was worth the $375 entry fee.... LOL

I’m supposed to be Tuna fishing in the Atlantic this weekend, if the trip doesn’t get blown out. Otherwise I’m in.

    • I know they drum quite a bit in the spring but I've been hearing drumming this fall. I'm not hearing as many as I do in the spring. But I'm sure hearing a good number of them drum  Are they  searching for a mate in the fall?
    • I was out 2 weeks ago around Duluth and saw a smaller buck either a 6 or small 8 pointer chasing a doe.  She wanted nothing to do with him.  I'll be back out this Sunday and Monday hoping to see a bit more activity. 
    • Thanks Hoey.  At that price I think I will just go with the foam board insulation.  It's such a small area left to insulate and that way I can avoid the mess and the headaches.  Plus I will be able to get it a full 2-3/4" thick throughout. My next project I think may be to replace the dinette table with a jackknife couch.  Any idea how long those come?  The longest I've seen so far is 72" which to me sounds too short for me to sleep on comfortably since I'm over 6' tall.  Does anyone carry bigger sizes, or do most people build them so they sleep with their head on the armrests?
    • They make mounts where the TV sits out a little further and you can mount a couple smaller appliances to the mount behind the TV with straps.  Not an option for some as the TV may stick out a few more inches but worth considering if you don't want a separate cabinet. 
    • picked up another 4.5lber last night at costco gonna give it another shot this weekend. @rl_sd they still had few others in the 4-7lb range left in the pile  I haven't seen any other places locally that have smaller ones like those.  
    • saw a few combines out last night taking beans out on my way home from work. Took dog for a run and saw a couple more. Based on the ruts left in the field probably going to be a while yet before they really get going on harvest. Ground is still pretty wet and soft. We are supposed to get more rain this weekend in the eastern half of the state so hopefully they get get a bunch of stuff out of the fields these next couple of days. I have heard that in the northern areas, brown county, potter county etc where the drought was really bad they probably wont even harvest and just leave a lot of stuff in the fields until insurance can look at it. Those that have something to harvest got just enough rain late in the season that they may be able to salvage something but don't see them harvesting anytime soon. Good luck to those going out this weekend I probably wont end up going. I just prefer cooler temps mainly for the dog. I shot 3 birds earlier this week so scratched the itch. I am gonna get things done around the house and wait for more crops to come out and cooler temps before I really start hitting it hard. 
    • I would also bleed them before storing in an ice box.
    • So many beautiful carps! Keep them coming
    • Heard about this trick before.
