      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

Anyone interested in going out to Oneida Saturday morning? We could meet for breakfast and then all put in for a day of fishing.

    • I saw on a show about a guy living on a point on a lake that had many houses on poles in the water about 20ft from shore. Maybe about 3ft above the water. All the houses were full, It was cool to watch. Easier to maintain at that height, waist deep in water. 
    • I know folks who clean out the martin house's every year.....
    • I rinsed them and put them out whole.
    • Well, fellas,  lemme tell ya:  I've had one terrific life and done more things than you'd probably believe.  In fact I told my wife one evening shortly after we had moved to the lower 48, "I think you had best cool it with some of your recollections of our time and adventures in the North because I get the feeling most people won't believe you anyway. And to this day we don't shoot off our mouth too much just for that reason. EVERYBODY should be as lucky as I have been!!  
    • Sounds like there will be 17 guns offered!! Come  on the odds of winning a gun are great
    • I will go to small mom and pop bait shops I know pay more for some jugs but I love the service 
    •   Ufatz, not doubting a word you have to say, you are quite the colorful creator. The stories you have told over the years of trapping in the Yukon Territory. Living in a log cabin, driving old trucks with right and left hand lug nuts and fighting off Big Foot have been interesting to listen to.  To say the least. And now, you live in MN and drive a Mercedes Benz!  Hat's off to you're life sir.
    • Just make a point of telling the shop people to use a torque wrench and then tell them the value you want on your vehicle,  which you will have gotten from the manual. My Benz's have aluminum wheels for the most part and you can distort and ruin one it a Millenial Ape gets at them with a giant super powered wham-bam air powered wrench. I've found too many that know drugs,  not lugs.
    • Hey 3rd in the central and winning games on the road, we are certainly trending in the right direction at the right time of year. After some rocky starts to their careers Zucker and Granlund have really turned into some amazing players, like anyone they go hot and cold but I can't really say enough good things about them. Along with Staal they have really carried our offence this year. Hopefully in the next 20 games we can get some other guys going. Coyle can give us more, Nino looks a little off but it sounds like he is still fighting that ankle injury. Parise looks like his old self more and more but just not converting like he use to, hopefully that changes. I was against making a deadline move earlier in the year but if we keep this pace up we really could use another top9 winger, Ennis just isn't cutting it. Absolutely do not want to spend a 1st rounder on anyone at this point but if they can pick up someone decent on the cheap it might be worth it. We still have the majority of the team that was 2nd in the west last year and if they can play up a little closer to their potential there is not reason we can't make some noise in the playoffs in some kind of underdog fashion.
    • I went to the store in Woodbury a few times for reloading supplies and thought it was a good store. I like that format better than the upscale Cabela's model.
