      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 .

Awesome day on the St. Croix...

Took a client (a novice fisherman who's never caught a walleye in his whole life) from work out on the river. Started out about 6AM by Hudson I-94 bridge. Doing a little verticle jigging with crawlers and leeches. Put the guy on fish right away. By 10AM we both limited out on 'eyes with a few decent saugers. Biggest 'eye was a 22" (released) had a few 19" too. Spent the rest of the day chasing silver bass and smallies. Got a few decent smallies on topwater and suspending stick baits. Charteuse seems to be the ticket today. All in all a great day on the water.

Jloomis, Yep they are. I was down there just the other night and where there was baitfish and gulls there was usually some feisty silvers right behind.

Badbeat,

How deep of water do you fish this time of year and do you just look for humps on your sonar? I fish near the prescott bridge. Any help would be appreciated!

The silvers are chasing baitfish still and like turn said look for the gulls and you won't find whitebass too far behind.

I was fishing 10-20 feet of water. The baitfish were fairly shallow in the water column though. About the top five feet of the water. Hope that helps./

Was out yesterday morning 5am. Trolled along the shore for some crappies. Found a nice school caught a few doz. slabs. Kept a few for lunch. Then hit a school of silvers and fought with them for the next few hours. Caught a nice 24" walleye on a spinner while fishing for silver. Got a few decent size saugers too for the frying pan. Not bad day to be out at all with the crisp fall air and the sunshine.

      A boat and trailer are two separate pieces of equipment.  The trailer is titled and the boat isn’t.  You can have one and not the other for any amount of reasons. The wheelhouse is one item and titled, hence the plate.  Shelter tags primary purpose (besides raising money) is to officially verify who is responsible for it.  You can do that with a plate number. Is what it is.  But I’ve just been having more difficulties considering the license fees as just another drop in the bucket.  If ALL the money was used for managing wildlife and habitat I’d have an easier time with it.

      We caught em between 17' and 27' off a shoreline point. Definitely had more action in our shallower holes though.

      Got out today on Niles Bay. We had 4.5" to 6" of good clear ice. Only one walleye between the two of us but the tullibee and whitefish were on a tear. Even got a nice bonus pike! Hoping to dial in the walleyes over the next couple days.

      First ice fishing trip today out of morson ontario .  Fishing  was a little slow got a few walleyes and a couple of crappies . Lost what little  snow we had today made the ice really  slippery. Found 9 to 11 inches of ice.

      Well, I have to pay for registration on my boat trailer to run it on the road, and the boat to run it on the lake, why shouldn't wheel houses?  I guess I don't feel bad for the wheel house guys.

      No not yesterday. 2 weeks ago when we had that first cold spell I went out on Baxter, Blue and Long and checked the ice. They were locked up but only had 1-2" inches so didn't venture out too far. Baxter probably was walkable but had open water on the back end so figured I stay off. Last Sunday I went and checked them out after that warm rainy week we had and they had open water, so yesterday I skipped checking them and went farther north. But I did notice most lakes were locked up on the drive up there. Cant wait for the local lakes to get some decent ice!

      Wondering if big sandy is clear enough to spear fish when the ice comes on? Never done it before and would like to give it a try
