      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 .

Just wondering who if anyone from here is planning on hitting the river in Grand Forks this weekend? I'm gonna be over there fishing the North Side Friday and possibly Saturday too.

If your out and see me, say hi. I'll be fishing in my 17' MirroCraft w/a 90hp Evinrude on the back.

Talk to ya'll later and hope to see some of you on the river.

I won't be up there this weekend, but I can give you a report from my cousin from this past Wed- Wow!!! He spanked 'em. Apparently they're not in full spawn mode yet, or maybe I'm off and just coming out of it up there- caught big fish and great numbers. Hopefully you'll find the same this weekend.

Fished Friday and Sunday and I do believe the Cats are a spawnin'!

All the big Cats I caught had cuts and marks all over 'em. Not sure if the spawn is the reason, but I'm guessing thats why they looked so rough? Water tempurature was in the upper 70's and water flow is about "normal"...maybe even a little slow...

Friday I caught (1-17lb Cat) (1-13lb Cat) (2-22" Cats)

(1-21" Cat) and (1-27" Cat)...

Sunday was HOT!!! Ended up catching (1-16lb Cat) (1-10lb Cat) and (2-23 1/2" Cats)...

It definetly wasn't fast, but it could have been worse I guess. Both days I used Cut Sucker Minnows, and caught most fish on the trailing edge of runs near deep water.

It's kind of funny though, both days almost every fish was caught on my Circle hook rod with the biggest chunk of bait I could possibly fit on it! It seemed they were only interested if the bait was freekishly big?

Well, that's my report from this past weekend.

Talk to ya'll later....

Catmanlee did you have any problems getting your boat in the river in Grand Forks? I have a 16' deep v lund with a 90hp and I can't get it in the river in Crookston but would like to fish for some cats in Grand Forkss if the river is high enough! Thanks!

GF & EGF keep their ramps in real good shape. With the number of guys fishing the river over there, they don't stay mudded in very long.

I'd say you'll be fine! River should be plenty high for your boat. If you are concerned at all about depth, south has much more depth than north although I don't think it should be an issue whichever way you go.

Hanson is spot on... The ramps are easy to use and are in great shape. As for the river levels, plenty deep for any size boat, just use caution and watch for dead heads and "junk" floating in the water. The shallowest water I was finding in the center of the river was 6-8ft deep, so it's definetely better than last year...

Good luck if you go out.

      wealthwood had1.5 last weekend, i saw no one out but 1 person on the whole west side last wsat afternoon. thi week the resorts on the north end and east are reporting decent ice. check with the resorts before you go out. id stay away from public accesses now and follow a staked road.
    • MrSchrute
      Have you fished out there before? Is it worth putting some time in on the ice? Thanks-
    • walleyewalby

      Anyone know of the ice conditions in the oak narrows area?
    • blue gill hunter
      Has anyone heard of any ice reports on Big Marine?
    • dindunuffins
      I heard  6" or so around terrys..  id figure public access must be close to the same?
    • gimruis
      Dude, seriously just stay off the ice until its safer.  No fish is worth risking your life for.

       Ice is scary on blue. I was out last weekend fishing next to open water north end is kinda sketchy still my buddy has been there every day this week. Still cant get close to the points only 1 inch there. Thicker by north end but its all older ice from the first freeze lots of cracks. The bay to the east towards the points and whole south end were wide open last sunday. Had 4 inches right next to it we fished as close to the point as we could get. We were 40-50 ft from open water and we got one eye. But ive never been so scared on ice before it was cracking very badly very loud and could feel the ice shifting. The walk back to access in the dark had my heart pounding and i didnt tjink we would make it back without one uf us goin through but we did make it.
