      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 .

Thanks Skipperkid it is what the site is for. This is a good site because of people that are willing to help others. People still have to catch fish on their own and even good info doesn't catch fish for many. smile.gif

I didn’t fish the crappies and really don’t care for crappies I just wanted to say Thanks for the post that was truthful. I fish walleyes and not much else. Fish move and when someone says where they are doesn’t mean they will be there and biting in an hour from when you caught them. Info is what this site is for and why we all read and follow it. I would hope that people aren’t steering others in the wrong direction. We all want the same thing, catch some fish. Some people fish more than others and stay on fish others get out now and then, and want a info to help to put them in the right direction. That’s why we read this site and ask for help now and then. I fish a lot of lakes and don’t get back to some lakes and want to see what others have done, can I fish the lake and find fish usually. But if others have had luck then I could take my fishing skills and fish to try and catch some. Keep the info flowing. I don’t want some to take this the wrong way but it is why the site is here.

I want this and hope it continues to help anyone who is reading the blog top catch fish and have fun with friends and family. cool.gif

I agree 100% that FM is to share some info and help eachother out. I also think that at times, during hot bites especially, we as sportsman have to be careful what we put on here so that vonerable (spelling?)fish dont get overharvested.

I have no problem telling people I have been catching fish in a certain lake and may even tel them on what but I do not give out specifc spots on the forum. Unfortunately there are some people who all they do is check out these sites and then go pound spots when they know a good bite is on. Some just dont get the "Selective Harvest" idea yet.

Lets keep the info (General) flowing and get some kids out fishing when possible. Looks like the youth of today arent fishing and hunting like when most of us were young so I think we need to try to keep the tradition alive.

Good luck and tight lines.

I am not sure where there is but was out for a few hours this morning since it was too rough on the big pond. We were fishing for walleyes but still managed 3 nice crappies (1 really nice one) along with 3 walleyes, 2 northerns, and a number of very nice gills. We weren't lookin for a meal today so all were released. I don't think FIsh Lake is that hard to find the crappies...just move around a little and you will find them. They were in the weeds late this morning but we moved as we weren't getting any eyes at the time and moved to deeper water and more structure. I don't target them that often but almost always manage to catch a few anyways.

We made it out yesterday and tried for walleyes and got three little ones. Then we pitched spinner baits on the weed edge and cough three bass and a few hammer handles. Then we tried for the sunnes and did good in some weed edges and some not so good we did catch some trolling for the eyes as well cool.gif. I think I would fish with my fly rod next time they sure where jumping all over eating bugs smirk.gif.

The fireworks in Duluth were great but some of these fish lake reports are just crazy. 30 walleye over 16"s. Man that would be a year for me on fish lake.

If the bite is that hot on fish for walleye and panfish I hope everyone is practicing CPR like Skipperskid did. Lets not ruin a good thing.

Tom,

You could send some of those walleyes up the Cloquet River. Spent the 4th up there to avoid the crowds, seems I avoided the fish also. Worst fishing i've ever had up there, but always a fun trip.

Tom,

Well they are in a good Lake I hope they stay for awhile smile.gif. I did the rivers like the Cloquet river and the upper st. louis river and you know I miss that fishing. There is some thing about being out and not seeing people I never did how is it now? Do you see any body else out fishing smirk.gif.

Thanks for the report Skippers kid. Good to know they are still there and I may have to hone my tactics a bit. Was out today for five hours and only managed 1 15"er. Have tried the last few years to avoid bouncing on the waves on a calm day, by fishing during the week.

Two trips to Fish this year and one fish to show for it. Lots of little Gills however.

Amazing how the lake has changed since 86.

      The public launch at The Landing on the west end stays open until the ice sets in, but they do pull the dock sometimes around the end of October / beginning of November.

      Just curious if people are finding fish moving into fall patterns yet or still finding them in more summer locations?  I've been finding good sized panfish in deeper water myself around more mid lake structure. Most of the lakes I've been on are still pretty green with algae and weeds.

      Captain Acorn, I use Gamagatu  octopus hooks. Size 4 for crawlers and size 2 for minnows. Red, black, chartreuse, and pink , mostly red and black. I use orange and green glow soft beads at times. (Worked today!) Cliff

      We did well today from 1-4pm on an underwater point. Finally found some fish in a semi-sheltered area. Last few days have been tough to control the small light boat with all the wind. Most caught on pink jigs in 21-30ft.  Cliff I did try the circle hook lindy today with the big minnow and nailed the first bite I had. Next 2 bites grabbed it hard but dropped it. Work in progress!
