      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 .

Anyone been out targeting Bass (particularly Smallies). I've been there a few times and really had great luck catching a ton on in shallow rocks. Is that still the case or has the bass fishing slowed a bit. Thanks laugh.gif

Anyone need a fishing partner? I've always wanted to try Green because I have never caught a smallie. However, the size of Green intimidates me. I have a 15 ft. boat with 25 hp motor so if anyone knows the lake and doesn't have a boat, shoot me an email. I'd like to get up there thursday or friday, now that the weather is finally cooling down a bit. bassangler@charter.net

X, don't let the size of Green intimidate you. There are accesses all around the lake, so watch the weather and choose. I fished that lake for 6 years in a 14 ft with 7.5 hp motor. Green Lake would be a great pick for getting your first smallie.

X...I agree w/ Bigfife completely. I live on the SW shore of the lake and only have a 16' boat w/ 15hp motor (glorified duck boat according to "friends"). Although there are days that I can't get the boat off the lift due to wind, if it was on the trailer there is ALWAYS a shore / launch that would be accessible AND comfortable. Would be your best bet lake for a first smallie...chances are it'd be quite a nice-sized one as well!

I fished a pro-am tourney out there on the 11th. The bite wasn't terribly great, but it was consistent throughout the day.

I'm not worried about the size of the lake vs the size of my boat. My problem is, where do I fish? That is the part that intimidates me when on a larger lake.

You can catch smallmouth ANYWHERE on that lake! There is obviously areas that are better than others but there is a lot of bass and a lot of good water. If its your first time, just look for the buoys, thats where rocks are and their will be enough fish to get you started. Just try it, dont be intimidated! I cant think of hardly anywhere on that lake that I havent at least seen smallmouth! Just stay away from like 3 fow and sand! wink.gif

We fished most of day until6:30 evening

Water temps down to 69 to 71 degrees

Lake was really wierd today,foggy in late afternoon,rain all day or drizzle,good size waves on west side

Was it worth it[yes]we would find singular or double fish in spots so really had to move around.

The color of the presentation was down to one working color for bass no other colors worked,tryed several. got several larger largemouth and smallmouth and a big northern.

For quite a while we did not see any boats out and other times two to a quarter,fun being out when its quiet.

Doing it again tommorrow and weather is now not supposed to improve.

More than half the teams fishing the Dennys Bass tournament also caught Walleye on Sunday.

Most never fished any place but 3 to 5 feet of water that claimed these Walleyes.One guy got 3 walleyes.

We fished Saturday and than about 2 hours Sunday in waters from 5 to 20 and caught some nice bass and northerns.Bass from 5 to 9 feet deep and northerns about 15 to 20.Colors for bass were green and most other colors failed,northerns hit on white spinners.

Fishing around the rushes near Calhoun exit we caught some nice largemouth Bass in 2 to 5 feet.

Seth felder won for two weekends in a row with travis lohre doing second again.

Anyone hitting any crappies??

Yes they were pretty nice,caught them on a white spinner that i pulled on bottom instead of top.

really deep ,kept it off bottom just inches .Not at all the way you would expect to use one ,but a tactic I have had good luck with for big fish.

Was trying all kinds of stuff to try and get some bigger bass as am tired of these 2 and three quarter pound smallies.

Got the spinner from JB tackle the other day when I was Down and oredered a hundred fall harnesses,owner said to try it[Works just fine will be nice to see what sorts of bass stuff they put out.

Gonna get him up on first couple hot and stinky days to Games and West Norway.

These Walleye harnesses he made for me are the same ones I used to tie but my terrible eyesight keeps me from doing them anymore.Flat blue one side of blade and flat orange on other side.Started using them in 65 to colder waters a few years ago and love them.

They work better with leaches and fatheads and can get leaches thru October from Wisconsin when we go to races.

I'll be staying at a friends cabin on Green in a week and a half. How are the walleyes biting now? Smallies? Crappies? Can I expect things to get better by the time I get out there? Thanks!

I have only tried fishing for eyes lately. Fishing was good last Wed, Sat & Monday. I'll be going again in about a 1/2 hour to see if still good. My experiences have been that usually the eye bite stays good until around mid Oct and then will get slow for about a week and than pick up again usually after turnover. Good luck! Call ahead to to see if J's bait can get you some redtails for walleyes. Big river chubs really work good on those smallies.

      Yeah looks like the 2nd weekend in December if we're lucky before you can ice fish this area. Going to be another late year on the ice.

      Next year you will have to buy one for wearing long underwear or pac boots.

      Love the reports Smuts. Looks like another great season. Keep it going!

      It just never ends in this state.  Tax, tax, tax.  Where does this money go?  Whats next?   A tag for your vehicle to drive on the ice?

      Fun for some folks that went exploring early ice from a few years ago.

      Hi Cookie,  a buddy and I are going up this weekend.  Will they bite much after dark or is the water too mucky this early.  I appreciate any info.  Thanks

      Yesterday the MN DNR announced a license requirement change effective NOW for this ice season. All Wheel House and other fishing structures which cannot be folded / collapsed must be licensed even if you remove the house when you get off the ice.

      Harvest climbs 16 percent from 2016 Minnesota firearms hunters registered 161,057 deer through the third weekend of deer season, according to the Department of Natural Resources.  Preliminary results through the third weekend show that the number of deer registered was up 16 percent from 2016. Of the deer harvested, 53 percent were bucks, compared to 63 percent during the same period in 2016. In Zone 1, in northeastern Minnesota, total firearms harvest was up 36 percent. In Zone 2, which covers the majority of the state and runs from Canada to Iowa, harvest was up 10 percent and Zone 3, in southeastern Minnesota, was down 5 percent. “The conditions were generally good for hunters participating in the last week of the Zone 1 season and for the start of the 3B season in the southeast,” said Erik Thorson, acting big game program leader, “which provided a boost to the statewide firearms harvest.” Based upon the number of antlerless permits available and the number of permit areas that allow multiple deer to be taken, the DNR is projecting the 2017 total deer harvest to be around 200,000. The 2016 total harvest was 173,213 and to date firearms and archery hunters have harvested about 180,000 deer this year. In much of Minnesota, the firearms deer season ended Nov. 12, and the northern rifle zone season ended Nov. 19. The late southeast firearms deer season is open through Sunday, Nov. 26. The muzzleloader season begins Saturday, Nov. 25, and continues through Sunday, Dec. 10. More information on deer management can be found at mndnr.gov/deer. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Applications due by Saturday, Dec. 16  The Department of Natural Resources, the Metropolitan Council and the Greater Minnesota Regional Parks and Trails Commission are seeking qualified applicants to serve on the Parks and Trails Legacy Advisory Committee.  “The Parks and Trails Legacy Advisory Committee plays a critical role in helping us achieve the vision Minnesotans have for use of the Parks and Trails Legacy Funds and creates an accessible and equitable, integrated system of state and regional parks and trails in Minnesota,” said DNR Commissioner Tom Landwehr. The purpose of the committee is to promote and coordinate implementation of the 25-Year Parks and Trails Legacy Plan. Funding recommendations for individual projects is not a part of this committee’s work. The plan can be found at on the parks and trails legacy plan page. 2018 will mark the 10th anniversary of the passage of the Legacy Amendment by Minnesota voters. The committee is planning a series of regional events during the year to celebrate Legacy accomplishments and engage Minnesotans on the question, “Why Parks and Trails Legacy Matters.”  Information about the events will be available in January on Facebook (/PTLegacyMN) and on the committee website (www.legacy.leg.mn/ptlac). The deadline for applications is Saturday, Dec. 16. The committee is made up of 17 members, including, to the practical extent possible, diverse geographical and demographic representation. The committee has a mixture of park and trail professionals and Minnesota residents. Committee members should have expertise in two or more of the four strategic pillars of the plan: Connect people and the outdoors. Acquire land and create opportunities. Take care of what we have. Coordinate among partners. Terms are two years with the option of being reappointed for a maximum of three terms. Meetings are scheduled every two months around the state, with an option to attend remotely. Interested individuals may complete the application form online at www.legacy.leg.mn/ptlac/member-application or print it out and return it to Paul Purman, Department of Natural Resources, Box 39, 500 Lafayette Road, St. Paul, MN 55155.
