      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 .

Same deal for me, Ray. Went out Tues and got shut out. Not often that happens around here when the fish aren't in spawn mode. It was a short trip though- had my 2 year old with and he didn't last more than 1 1/2 hours.

Hey Scoot...same deal for me and Cal. We went out of the north end of Grand Forks and got skunked! I went last week to the same spots and did very well. The only difference was we were using suckers the first time and frogs this last time?

Stinkin' fish! We get a nice pattern figured out and they can't seem to get it. Such is life as a fisherman, huh? Stick to it and it'll get better...

I've got out twice this week and it has been slower as well. Tues only got 2 but one was a dandy! My PB for the Fargo stretch(17.4lbs) and Wed before the lightning chased us off my buddy caught a 7lber.

I will be heading out this Saturday to see what happens. Maybe the cats were enjoying the break from the hot weather? grin.gif

Here's a pic of my big one for the year, so far...

Well i went out today during the cats incredile and had a good evening. We got on the river about two and fished into the early evening. We caught cats that would have made great slot fish. All seemed to be in the 5 to 7 pounds range. Figured since I'm not in the tourny I would have had about 33 pounds with not big fish. Did see a boat land one htat would have pushed 20.

Has anyone been out the last couple of days? Just wondering if it has gotten any better out there. Was thinking of giving it a try tonight, but my fishing partner has parenting duties grin.gif. Might have to find someone else.

Fishing on the Red was slow again today. A few small cats and a couple goldeyes in a couple hours of trying. Frogs were the bait of choice for us today- didn't have any sucker or goldeye to use. Tough sleddin' for me right now.

SLOW...seems to be the common theme right now, which is unfortunate. I was out Monday night and caught 2 little cats(1.5lbs) and last night the guy that was with me got around a 6lb fish, a few small ones(1-2lbs) and a 21" eye on a frog. A couple weeks ago things were looking up and now it's gone south. I have noticed the water temp is down about 5-6 degrees from 2 weeks ago also, it's at about 74-75 right now.

I am going out again Friday night to see if anything changes.

FYI- My bro fished for two hours today and did better numbers-wise (a dozen fish), but the size wasn't very impressive (biggest was around 4 lbs.)

Where can you get frogs in the FM area? Do you have to catch them or do they sell them someplace? I'll be heading out the next couple days so I hope the fishing picks up.

Thanks

Hey Joe, you can get frogs at D & H Bait just E of Dilworth or you can go catch them. Anywhere you find ankle to knee high grass near water, particularly water that isn't moving too fast, will be good for frog hunting. Golf courses can also be good.

      Best wishes for a happy retirement Ace.   I could never have done the guide thing even if I were a good enough fisherman.   It takes a special type of person to deal with all the different people... Congratulations on a job well done. 
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Terry, Sorry to hear that you have to retire after all of these years! I suppose It will be my turn to join you and Tommy before to many years also. See you on the water!! Cliff

      Congratulations on job well done sir. Your deserve time for yerself with Sandra an the whole younger crew. You have always been nice to me an a big help when I first seriously did the Muskie fish guide deal back summer 1996. We have had some fun times laughing online an in each other's boat over the years. Even boated a fish or three an coined a few major phrases still used in today's ever so silly online Muskie fish market.  Good stuff that I think only you n I could muster up and never take any of it seriously. Truely makes me smile clear to my middle all the junk we talked about an did. You are a good man Terry and welcome in my boat any time. Anytime. Ya done good and will not soon be forgotten. Thanks for being my friend on or off the water. The name fits as you really have been "The Ace"on our sweet Vermilion.   Still no fish round my docks but Bonnie, Polar Bear Boy an myself always have enjoyed your company. Yer the best in many ways my friend.  Thanks. Keep on Rocken!   Tommy.       PS.    I will continue to keep the Zombie Horde in check.    ; )

      I hope you enjoy your retirement!

      Keep the reports coming Curt, much appreciated.  Unfortunately, I'm not able to get back up there until September 22-25th., so it going to be tough keeping my mind on work and not LOW.  Are you just moving around in the basin until you mark a school of fish, and then jigging them?  I see all of your waypoints on the screen you showed, so those must be spots that have held fish at one time.

      Hey everybody, I have my last two guide trips on the 22nd and 23rd of August. A bad back and old age have taken their toll and I will retire from a job I have loved to do for the last 27 years.  I still enjoy it but unfortunately my body just can't take the pounding anymore. I'll still be out there fishing but no longer on a daily basis. I will miss all the regular clients I have had over the years and all the new people I have met that I can call my friends. Thanks to all of you that have shared the boat with me over the years, I hope you all had a good time. "Ace"   "It's just fishing man"

      Bought a couple of baitcaster reels..my first....Lew's BB1 speed spool and Daiwa Tatula CT R. After about two weeks of daily practice casting in the river behind our house....lots of backlashes(birds nests)...I gotta say, I've come to love casting with these reels....much more accurate than my spinning reels. Any other baitcasting fans out there?  If so, what do you use?

      How's the bite been recently.   Coming up for the weekend and curious at what depths to start at.
