      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 .

Welcome to fishing in Roch,

I don't believe there is any one answer to your question. It depends on a lot of factors.

The weeds in Willow Creek will generally start turning brown within the next month or so. Some weeds on Foster Arends will die at about the same time, but others will stay green and flourish throughout the winter.

Most water impoundmen’s will go through a variety of water clarity cycles. Things like alge blooms, water turnovers, rain, and water temp all affect this. Typically a body of water is green for about 1.5 weeks before it starts to clear. Some never completely clear up in the summertime though.

The green slime you’re talking about is a tough call. If the water is stale sometimes the green slime will break off in chucks and float to the surface. Other types affixes to rocks and other firm surfaces. I honestly don’t know exactly when that stuff goes away.

Good questions though. Hopefully somebody else can chime in. Welcome to FishingMinnesota.coma

Not much of a weed expert,...but maybe,..(if you don't mind nameing your fishing spot) you could tell us the body of water you are referring to. There are alot of knowlagable people here,...and maybe you might find one that frequents the place you are referring to. Being a regular visitor to a lake can some times be better than a text book life cycle of weeds and slime wink.gif ,...as every body of water is unique,..and as tyler said it faces many unique factors that will set it apart from others.

Good luck, and welcom to the family!!!! cool.gif

Foster Arends has been reported to have Milfoil in it. Tis not good at all.

Oxbow has plenty of smallies within the park. Caught 10-20 each trip out there last year, but they ran small. Might have had 1 or 2 that taped in the teens, but that was it.

I've seen lots of suckers out there, but never fished for them in the park. I imagine one could catch some iffin he tries.

      ripped out some old boards that were well past their prime on my boat.  Any recomendations on what to replace them with?  They looked to be treated plywood but wondering if getting something different would work better.  Such as a piece of 1 x 12 pine and throwing a few coats of polyurethane on it as well?  The boards I am talking about are for the benches.   Also, replacing the seats in there as well.  Previous i had the the vinyl foam seats.  When shopping around i am seeing a lot of the molded plastics chairs.  Any preference out there for durability?  Vinyl rips but wondering if the molded crack or break?   Thanks for any feed back!

      The flocks of geese are now flying over my house in the morning and evening, but when this happens Finn gets all jacked up. Like right now he is nudging me and running pawing at the window. A few minutes earlier when the first gaggle few over I was going to change the laundry and Finn raced down and sat by gun safe  whining.  Fishing reports have been great for crappies on the area lakes. Walleyes are not biting as well in lakes but when the rum is clearer that is the place to be. Bears any no quota hunters this might be your year to get a bear around here.  Deer seem to every where drive carefull.  Seeing some ducks flying around.  I have seen a few grouse and pheasants.

      I've been by a time or two trying to figure out which place is yours.   I was out on wakemup last night too.   Got nothing, on crawlers.  Started out at merry go round, went to "picnic island" (little island east/south of taylors).  rigged along edge of those two humps in like 18-25 feet.   Musky guys were coming so I turned.  They turned too, chunking baits in the vicinity of my boat.   Then some guys in a pontoon pulled up and anchored in front of me  and threw out bobbers.   Fished a while longer, and it was getting sort of dark so went home.   Weird.  I've been on those humps a bunch of times this year, and suddenly I get company.   And, even though it is a pretty big area they gravitated to where I was.  I'll be out today too, so if you need help with supervision, let me know.    But I will drive by to check out the new construction.

      Been getting a few on the weed line, early am when there's a little breeze, since the surface temps started coming down. That was about this month's full moon, for me. A very slow troll, fishing vertically, & just a 1/16 oz. jig.
