      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 fished the river last night around number 9. We ended up with 5 walleye smallest was 19" and a 4 pound blue. It was a bit slow but I think we caught more than the FLW G3 boat that I don't think ever got a line wet. The walleyes were really warm and slimey the meat was really mushy. The cat had better fillets than the walleye. If anyone fishes by number nine most of our hits came between the weeds and the buoy.

By blue you mean channel? No blues in the st.louis. I like catfish but I wouldnt eat anything that is digging around in the bottom of the river all year. Fun to catch and release though.

Yeah, I like when people are like...ewww, those are bottom feeders. Meanwhile they have walleye on the stringer that pretty much do the same thing. I love eating smaller cats but just not out of the st.louis. There really arent a lot of good catfish areas near the duluth area. I eat a few out of the clouquet river but other than that and the st.louis I dont know of any other good nearby spots. The clouquet runs into island lake...anybody know if the lake itself has a decent catfish population?

Island Lake itself has the biggest catfish I have seen in the area. It is fairly unusual to get a cat over 10 pounds out of either the St. Louis or the Cloquet, but I have caught quite a few really big cats 30 to 37 inches out of Island Lake. I don't know how many are in there, but they are big. I have caught my fish in the upper half of the water column, not on the bottom, using large suckers on a quickstrike with northerns/muskies being the primary target. By the way there are a lot of big northerns and muskies in the lake as well.
