      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 .

Recent amount of rain & area lakes

Recommended Posts

Will all the rain we have had in the last few weeks effect the lake levels at all? I fish lake Jane quite often, and that launch is so shallow. Just wondering if we will need significant more rain fall to really effect the lake levels.

Around me, some lakes have risen six inches or more. It sure makes landing you're boat easier. Also makes the grass nice and green.

6" K Dawg? Wow. How much rain did you get in Buff?

Maybe there is hope. I wouldn't mind another shot like that before duck opener (without the excessive amounts in the SE)

I live about 8 miles from the source of the Des Moines river. It was pretty much bone dry a week ago, and it's flowing now. I know that isn't good news for people down river, but it's good for us.

Lime lake in Avoca has risen at least 8 inches. I feel that estimate is lower than the actual rise.

Local duck sloughs and swamps are no longer popcorn fart dry. They actually have water in them.

I haven't checked the lakes in the Zimmerman area but on my rain gauge from 8/13/07 to 8/20/07 we recieved 5.25 inches!! Today will add some more and I didn't have the gauge out the 10-12th when we had some rain I believe.

We still haven't received any rain in the Ottertail and Wadena area. All the rains have been going North and South. I haven't mowed my lawn since July 4th.

Same here in the Hayward WI area. Lakes are way down and some of the landings are getting pretty bad.

Alan - Have you been to Jane in the last couple of days? I'm planning on going out there this afternoon and I was wondering if the launch has gotten any deeper.

No, I have not been there in a week or so. I was thinking about going there this Sunday. Post some feedback on the launch if you go before Sunday...as I will after Sunday if I get there, but I could hit Olson and Demontriville instead...

Alan - The launch on Jane is still plenty shallow. It's fine right where you launch, but still really shallow going out quite a way. When we were coming in for the evening there were some kids out fishing in the water that had to be out 50-60 feet and it was only up to their knees.

      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!
    • Daniel Anderson
      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

      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.
