      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’ll be staying in Two Harbors (actually Larsmont) this Fri 8/3. I’m thinking if I get up really early on Sat AM, I could fish for a few hours. It would need to be close and the species really wouldn’t matter although I would like to try my hand at something we don’t have down here in Rochester.

I’ll probably do the Two Harbors Breakwall if I don’t here of anything else. What are a few tactics that might work?

Again, I’d be game for about any species. Suckers, panfish, trout, bass, eyes, catfish. (I just need to know what equipment to bring). Honestly I really don’t know what that area has to offer, so I’m planning on bringing a variety of gear

Thanks in advance for your help. Any options\opinions are welcome. I'm sure this has been addressed before and if so, please point me to the thread(s)

PS.. I’m staying in Hinckley/Danbury on Sat and Sun nights

Thanks!

There is a great thread for the two harbors breakwall you could find through the search feature. If you get bored stop up at grand superior lodge, myself, shiner, illtakewhaticanget, and cheffrey work up there, although you'll probally run into cheffrey at larsmont. Have a great trip!

Tyler, go here and good luck on the wall! It's been very good to me over the years. Even now that I'm up in Ely it tempts me still. Well, the tourists don't tempt me. grin.gif

And dawn is a special time out on the wall. Hardly any tourists have slept off their hangovers yet, and the sunrise over the lake is worth it no matter how the fishing is. And, as far as that goes, dawn is a great time to get a few of those cohos and kings if they're in close. The DO like their low light periods.

Krocs up high and fast for salmon, steelies and loopers, down low and slow for lakers. Oops, that was just the whole Two Harbors Breakwall how-to in one sentence! shocked.gif

I think the Breakwall would be a good change of pace and something you can't do in Rochester.

Thanks stf and others.

I was the first person on the breakwall on Saturday morning and had the pleasure of seeing the sunrise over a glassy Lake Superior. WoW!

I worked Krocs in orange/hammered gold, green/silver, and blue/silver (all medium/middle size). For the most part I worked the lower sections of the water column, but I did make several countdown casts. I also tried a few raps but casting distance wasn't really there.

2 fish made it to the cement and both were rainbow trout (8" and 14") and neither were caught by me. I had to call it a day at 9:00am. They were caught a small Little Cleo green/silver about half way between the elbow and the tip.

Thanks for the report, Tyler. Looks like you paid the breakwall gods on your first trip there. Some days are fishless, others bountiful, but I've strung as many as three days in a row out there without seeing a fish, and then suddenly all heck can break loose.

The little 'bows were probably stocked this year and last year. Lots of them hang around the wall.

I payed my dues to the Breakwall gods too. Sunrise to 9 a.m., one strike from a dinky Rainbow at the end of the retrieve and missed him. Got interviewed by the creel clerk. Was the only one out there until about 8 a.m. when another guy came out. The creel clerk said that guy had gotten a coho and a laker the day before.

Nice to watch the sunset come up and I was in about a dozen photos (little do they know I'm no local). Lots of boats. Drove out of the lot and when I came no one was there, when I left I counted 25 trailers.

Well, it beats not fishing.

      I've gotten a lot of eyes this year, this being my best. Several in the 24" range and a LOT of eaters. A buddy and I took my mom out fishing and we got our limit of eater eyes in about an hour and a half. Good times!

      Nice! That looks like a good time.

      Let us know how it goes. I have a cabin on Linwood just off Whiteface. Be nice to find good spots in the area, seeing as for whatever reason I never fish Linwood...

      What a morning jigging on one of the best, fastest bites of the summer for me Tuesday morning of this week.  I had a guide trip but they cancelled that morning and I almost stayed on shore. Since I had the boat in the water and everything was set I went out by myself to check out a couple of spots.  I didnt get very far

       Anyone have any good news or been up there lately waz up  over the Fourth of July did OK nothing to brag about a few walleyes  or any other lakes around the area not looking for hotspots or nothing trying to catch a few panties

      OK thank you thinking about going up first week in September

      Low water continues to be the issue on the Red. Below the dams still remains sketchy so use boats at your own risk.  The fishing remains stable, similar to last week in that the fish are spread out but in the holes in the middle of the river.  Short 15-20 minute sits on spots keeping the bait fresh looking for the active catfish.
        Bait is still heavy to frogs and frozen suckers with goldeyes working some but it seems that frog and sucker are the best.  As water cools down I suspect fresh sucker will come into play as well.

      I used to have many fields but some guides came in and pay for the fields. I am down to 3 farms but they don't have any small grains this year. So I am going to take the early season off. As I know the geese will use some ponds to rest and I have access to them so I will wait until the regular season to pick off a few geese.
