      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 .

Heading up for our annual house boat trip the weekend after labor day.

We normally stay on the east side on the northern shore (north of pine island area).

Looking for tips this year. How deep? What's working? Anything really. Every year we usually end up fishing a little more than the year prior. I hope to actually have our first fish fry this year! We usually just end up playing cards and enjoying adult beverages and never seem to find much time to fish. smile.gif

Also, is there a fire ban going on? Or has that been lifted?

If you'd rather send tips via email, I'd appreciate that as well. Kylersk at yahoo (Contact Us Please) com.

Thanks in advance.

Fish are spread out but it sounds like they are starting to move towards their fall areas. Fire ban is still on. Only propane grill are allowed, no charcoal.

News Releases

Additional Changes in Fire Restrictions are Announced (2007-08-30)

The recent rainfall has somewhat lessened, but not eliminated, the potential threat of wildfires in Northeastern Minnesota. Cook, Lake and St. Louis counties have been under the most severe open burning restrictions in the state. As of 8 a.m. on Friday, Aug. 31, these restrictions will be slightly eased to allow the use of charcoal grills. Charcoal grill use will be allowed in Cook, Lake and St. Louis counties within 100 feet of a permanent residence or cabin. Additionally, in southern St. Louis County, campfires and charcoal fires will be allowed in patrolled campgrounds or resorts, the same as they are presently allowed in campgrounds along the Lake Superior shore.

In restrictions issued previously, campfires and charcoal fires were limited to the hours of 6 p.m. to midnight at patrolled campgrounds and resorts within one mile of Lake Superior. The eased restrictions now allow campfires in patrolled campgrounds and resorts in that part of St. Louis County south of a line defined as: from the west county line, east on State Highway 1 to U.S. Highway 53, then south to County Highway 16, and east on County Highway 16 to the St. Louis County line.

The U.S. Forest Service will continue to prohibit charcoal grills, campfires, or charcoal fires in national forest campgrounds throughout the Superior National Forest.

“The recent rainfall has allowed us ease restrictions on charcoal grills and campfires in these areas,” said Larry Himanga, Minnesota DNR wildfire prevention specialist.

“We ask that members of the public living and recreating in these counties exercise extreme caution if they choose to use their charcoal grill, Himanga said. “Make sure all coals are dead out, and utilize a metal or fireproof container for ash disposal. Also, have a ready source of water nearby to douse coals after use. Never dispose of charcoal ashes in any type of vegetation.”

General restrictions remain in effect for the following counties: Aitkin, Beltrami, Carlton, Cass, Crow Wing, Hubbard, Itasca, Kanabec, Koochiching, Lake of the Woods, Mille Lacs, Morrison, Pine, Todd and Wadena. In these counties there is to be no open burning, including the use of burning barrels. However recreational fires or campfires are allowed in a designated fire receptacle designed for such use provided it is associated with a residence, dwelling, campground or resort.

"Rainfall has temporarily eased the fire hazard in these counties," cautioned Fire Suppression Supervisor Ron Stoffel. "If periodic rainfall is not received restrictions could be reinstated."

"Although significant rainfall fell across most of northern Minnesota, higher fire danger is expected to resume by the weekend. Many areas are at half of their normal rainfall. More than one shower will be needed to reverse the extended drought conditions," said Himanga.

Labor Day weekend travelers are asked to be mindful of fire restrictions in northern Minnesota and to take care using any fire outdoors including smoking. Additional fire information can be found at www.dnr.state.mn.us/forestry/fire and www.fs.fed.us/r9/forests/superior.

Kylersk,

The walleyes are biting very well now.

Lindy rigs,jigs, and spinners are all working great. Minnows or crawlers are the best baits.

12' to 20' or 28' to 36' are the best depths.

Cliff

      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
