      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'm not sure about bass off harriet island, but you can catch some nice cats off harriet. For bass, I would recommend heading south of DT on warner to a little culvert and try fishing there.

All of Navy Island has fresh rip rap, it should be good for smallies (and other stuff) next year.

Ya, I just found out last year it is known as Raspberry Island. I have always know it as Navy.

How ever, last year they torn that island apart and I am not sure what is going on down their. In one month’s time, it changed totally and I believe it was fenced off on the east side.

When a wedding or event is going on, I have seen some interesting stuff down in the parking lot after getting their and heading to the point. You might walk up on some people that think they are alone and get caught up in the down town sky line, with just being at a wedding in their minds grin.gif;). Plus you see some drunks and occasional fight in the event center parking lot.

ah, ok. i've always known that as raspberry ;-)

i thought there was a fence along the east side too? didn't look like much access to the water. i was at st anthony yesterday & on the stone arch bridge. looks like good bass fishing there, especially on the st anthony side.

under the bridges along minnehaha creek close to where it drains into the mississippi is also good for smallies. the downstream edge of the sand bar at the mouth of the creek is also excellent.

i've always seen people fishing right where the creek comes in but i've always wondered about just up stream from there. does that hold fish? i'd assume it would when the water level is higher.

i haven't tried that stretch but i know that on the st. paul side just below the dam there is a bunch of concrete debris piled up under the ford plants power station. there are definitely smallies off of that area. also occasionally some very large northerns and walleyes. usually you need a boat out in the pool to get at the pike though.

i was just at hidden falls last night. i had no luck by the boat launch but i walked towards the dam & caught three smallies in about 20 minutes. each 1.5-2 lbs. i've seen a lot of people catching fish by the boat launch (usually to the right, if you're looking at the river).

      1st time ever I've seen zebra mussels in ottertail on west side   this SUCKS!!!!   had a red solo cup in the water... apparently they love RED.     at least 5 of them    it sucks

      From someone who grew up as a back reeling aficionado, I've learned to appreciate a quality drag on a reel.  It's the one thing I'll gladly pay for. Modern drag systems are so much better than they used to be.  Not taking advantage of them is leaving a lot of the value of a quality reel on the table.  Unused and wasted. So, is that the kind of opinion you were looking for?

      They are already established in OT.  Pulled docks at my sisters place with about 75% covered in zebes.  Wear shoes when your in the water.

      I noticed this spring that the higher end Shimano Stradic and others have eliminated the ability to back reel (no reverse) which I believe is a huge mistake, I don't like it!    any others have comments?

      Went up north grouse hunting it was fun. I must say having a dog makes it better.  This weekend is duck opener and I am jacked up for it.

      The public launch at The Landing on the west end stays open until the ice sets in, but they do pull the dock sometimes around the end of October / beginning of November.

      Just curious if people are finding fish moving into fall patterns yet or still finding them in more summer locations?  I've been finding good sized panfish in deeper water myself around more mid lake structure. Most of the lakes I've been on are still pretty green with algae and weeds.

      Captain Acorn, I use Gamagatu  octopus hooks. Size 4 for crawlers and size 2 for minnows. Red, black, chartreuse, and pink , mostly red and black. I use orange and green glow soft beads at times. (Worked today!) Cliff
