      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 .

Somebody is going to have to tap me on the shoulder this year when they show up...I won't have a day off for the next few weeks and won't have any time to be checking rivers. I'm sure someone will chime in with reports of fish in the next week or so.

I won't even bother looking unless we get some good rain. There isn't more than a trickle in any of the streams right now, but you should be able to get a pink or two in the lake anytime now. South shore streams are just as bad, except for the brule that rarely dips below 100 cfps. (although it is low and clear compared to normal levels)

I've done stream salmon run fishing elsewhere and had a blast. I've never done it on the North Shore. What are the typical dates for the runs there?

Chadwick get down to Brighton Beach early and late and toss some spoons. You will hook something. Change colors and fan cast all over. If you dont hook up in a half our try another rock. They are always in there this time of year.

Cleos and crocks in gold/orange, silver/blue or green and chart/orange are my favs.

deathroe, shoot me an e-mail at matt9er02zulu@hotmail.com or gimme a call (2184288015) when you can. I forgot about it for a while but got to thinking about it a week or so ago. I don't have your e-mail anymore though. I can swing by and pick it up wherever and whenever would work for you. Thanks!

As far as the salmon go. I know of two waters on the south shore (not counting brule) that have fish in them. That's about it though less than ten spotted in each. Should be more by the weekend so I'm probably gonna go stick a few on sunday...gotta work out on the lake friday and saturday. Too much going on right now! ...deer, turkey, lake trout, salmon...

Im going to be out fishing in Two Harbors in the boat this weekend if its not too windy. Will the salmon in the lake be close too shore staging near river mouths right now? I cant believe the big runs have started yet. Im trying to add some salmon to the catch along with the lakers.

Cascade River report: spent a couple of hours fishing, no fish seen or caught. Casted out into the lake, nothing.

Same goes for Devil Track. It might be too early...

I checked all the rivers from here to two harbors, and only saw fish in one. The Talamadge didnt even have a trickle running through it.

While on the subject, why are there so many no tresspassing signs there. Id almost put money on it that there is a meth lab back in those woods beacuse of all those "posted" signs...

Hey Fishstalker - how do you access the devil track? where do you park and walk in at? I had looked around a little bit by the highway (61) once before when I was up that way and found nothing but no trespassing signs and no place to park.

You can e-mail me or anyone else willing to help out: myemail.jpg

I wouldn't waste my time on the South shore unless you're at the Brule. The pike should have a bunch of fish in now, only about 3 dark kings earlier this week, only spotted a couple splake. Also, the water is lower than ever. I've not spotted anything else in the others.

south shore...man the water is low and clear...I thought last year was bad. I've noticed a lot of stretches have silted in and are shallower than last year. Need a good rain to flush them out. A few fish around but conditions arent the best.

I was going to head out to the south shore...to the Voight, but I now have a deer to take care of in the morning. If only I didn't do my homework and capitalize on my perfect stand placement I'd be out ripping lips! Instead I'll be elbows deep in veni! They should offset bow opener and the weak salmon run...and grouse and fall turkey season so I don't have to pick and choose! Hopefully I don't shoot a booner next weekend and I can chase some fish...I've got a few tied up tongue.gif

      Ice out as far as I could see today, little wind and a cool night tonight. Some wind forecast tomorrow night. It should be fine though. Here is the report   20171119_153600.mp4

      Any ice starting to form again?
    • Dirtyfisheyes
      By the look of the forecast, single digit lows at night and no snow. Should it be safe to say that the first of December would be safe for snow machines? Itching to make the trip. Also any recommendations for lodging would be helpful

      Yesterday Finn and I went hunting for ducks and I should have had 4 mallards and pair of woodies.i hit one woodie and it hit the water as Finn went to get it jumped up and flew away. Next weekend I will try again.

      Second week of December is looking good for southern Minnesota, if the current long range forecasts are close to accurate. Maybe even the first week of the month with a little luck.

      I figured I would start up a new thread for us to use for the winter now that things are starting to set up and guys may be starting to creep out on the bays and smaller water.   I did some more poking around on Pike Bay this morning and I don't have anything much new to report. We've got less than an inch of fluffy snow on the ice and things healed up after the warm front this week. I worked my way from shore out into the middle of the bay and ice was relatively uniform between 5.25 and 5.5 inches of nice clear ice. Earlier this week I checked all landings on the Tower end and everything was iced up except for open water way out in Big Bay appearing to mostly be all West of Birch/Ely islands. Not sure if all the recent strong winds from North and South have changed that status though. I'm still sticking with my original guess of December 2 for my first trip off McKinley on 5 inches.   Good luck this winter to all and Be Safe!

      extended forecasts look good up north. We won't have fish-able ice in the metro until at least the 2nd weed in December assuming no dramatic temp changes. The big Expo is Dec1-3 but temps look promising ~1.5hrs north. I wonder if the ability to go fishing might impact the amount of traffic at the show!
