      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 got off of work at stopped by Rick's. Noone was home so I came home

to what I thought would be a night off.

My back is killing me from being in boats for too many days to count.

All of a sudden this thought comes to me...call Dad.

Jimminy christmas he says ..I was just sitting down to eat ,but I'll be right out after.

So we hit the lake at about 6.

He drills this nice eye to start thing off and wouldn't you know it ,it was a money fish.Dang! The pressure was on.

The wind was really hauling and our trolling was a chore.

I watched my GPS and we were screaming at over 2.3MPH so I tied some rope to a 5 gallon bucket and made a primitive drift sock.Bingo ,right down to 1.4,then the speed was right on the money and we started to haul in walleyes.

I went to the west side of the lake to get out of the wind for awhile and we smacked a fist full of bass.

10 I think in like 15 minutes with a few more eyes mixed in.

The sun dropped and the wind slowed.We moved back out to the flat in the middle of the lake.I was hugging the west break and pip.I feel this light tap.I dropped my U.L. rod back for a second and reared.

Half expecting the same ole small variety eater I come forward with my rod and holy smokes I got bottom.

Well not really but that rod bent in half & I immeadiatly killed the motor.

I told Dad I got a big one.

I worked that fish to the boat hoping it was an eye.

It ran 3 times on me back to the bottom.

Finnaly I saw his eyes glowing ,the tell tale sign of an eye in the dark running a headlamp.

OOOOOOOO weeeeee,I exclaimed.Grabbing the net I 1 timed it right into the boat.

Never did weigh or measure it ,but it took the all mighty dollar for the night.

Where in the heck was Rick or Mallard.

Here's my Dad with a tomato blood core ring-n grub doing some business.

As we left I told him I almost did not call him as I thought it was too late to make plans.

He says ,it's never too late!

      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!

      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

      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.
