      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 .

Let's define weedline.

Weedline means:

a: the edge where the weeds just touch the surface of the water.

b: the edge where weeds stop growing (or are sparse)

c: the area between a and b.

I always figured it was a. What do the experts say?

B. There is an inside (shallow edge) and outside (deep edge).

kato guy is right some times the fish are on the inside edge some times they are on the deep edge. Case in point this summer we did well on the inside weed edge, around park rapids that is 3 to 6 feet of water, with cranks toward dark.

Yeppers.. I'm Voting B... where the weeds stop growing.. Often times you can not see a weed edge with the naked eye, must be seen with eletronics.

Let's not forget the place where to types of aquatic vegetaion meet. That's an edge also. Cattails and pads or cabbage and pencil reeds... all edges.

Also if there is a mud to gravel transition, with an inside turn and a small hump, there is sure to be a spot on the spot.

Another vote for B. Vegetation is both emergent and submergent, so that definition would sort of rule out A.

B. I've never heard the term used as described in A.

B... Weedline refers to where the weeds stop growing in my book. Submergent, emergent.... Weedline is the weedline. Lets try to keep it simple. sand to weeds, muck to weeds, gravel to weeds, rock to weeds. A line that can be seen on almost any graph. smirk.gif

Thanks for the info guys. I attached a quik-e sketch for clarity. See, I have always been focusing on the a and c area. But you guys say go for the b area. Am I crystal clear?

Sonic -

I would not exclude A and C completely but B is where I would focus. Weather and wind would be factors that would influence fish movement along the edges (up/down and edge/imbedded). Generally though I look for a much more dramatic end rather than one that gradually peters out as you have drawn. The weeds end at almost a right-angle to the surface but there may be isolated clumps out from the edge here and there. I find those areas to typically be better especially down at the base but I've caught many good fish coming off the top of a sharp edge on the deep side or getting bit just as the bait approaches the inside edge.

Hope this helps - just my experience.

      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

       Anyone have any good news or been up there lately waz up  over the Fourth of July did OK nothing to brag about a few walleyes  or any other lakes around the area not looking for hotspots or nothing trying to catch a few panties

      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.
