      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 am heading up to the north shore for my first ever pink salmon run. How has fishing been in the rivers where the pinks come in? I also have a question on how i exactly rig my fly rod for throwing egg patterns. Do you use a few split shot to get the egg down or just left them float? Also if anyone is willing to email me and fill me in a a few rivers i should go to that would be extreamly helpful. Its my first time up there for fishing and any help is greatly appreciated! My email is walleyefisher03@yahoo.com Looks like the rain should help bring the fish in right?

horrible. Dont even bother coming up, they arent in the rivers yet. There is not enough water, although if we get enough rain I am hoping the may run.

Matt; burn some gas and head for WI tribs (in a couple weeks). Maybe we'll get enough rain to get our pitiful numbers of salmon to find thier way upstream, but I'll take one good weekend in WI over a season on the NS rivers. Besides, pinks are nasty little things.

yeah i have a trip lined up to head to the tribs in a few weeks. I am mainly going to the NS to go camping at Gooseberry as a main reason that i am going up there but wouldnt mind trying to find a few places to go fly fishing.

you will need a split shot if your fly isn't weighted. however, you want the least amount of weight that will get the fly down to the fish. if the pinks are on shallow gravel then you probably don't need any weight. If the are in deep slow water I have found that a suspended fly, twitched every now and then to be the ticket. In this scenario you don't need much weight either.

I don't go after pinks that often, but I have determined that fast eratic presentations are more effective than a dead drift. I also prefer a flashy bugger or streamer over a yarn fly or spawn. Swing your fly down ans across while stripping rapidly to get some really aggressive hits.

      Good luck. Maybe we will see you Friday. I will let you know how things are looking by us as the weekend goes by.

      I still hope it's double!  I just went over the map with my brother and talked about our options.  We have enough places to go for sure.  It's always fun planning and talking about past hunts. I put out the question to the other two guys about staying in camp vs the house.  We'll see what they decide.  I hauled our "cabin" home from Ely today so we should have plenty of room if they wanna camp.

      Did a few off season projects waiting for Ice. - Underwater camera, Fish Finder, Wheel house mods and the latest converting a 2 cycle Jiffy Lite 90 to an ION battery auger. Got the auger off Craiglist for $10, Drill for $15. Second stage of gear box is a 5 to 1 reduction so got the auger blade to turn at about 250 RPM which I feel is an ideal speed. Gear reduction also doubled the torque of the motor drive. Planning to use the Dewalt 20V ION battery as I already have charger and now converting one of the 1.5 AH batteries to either 9 or 12 AH.  If anyone needs a mid 80's Jiffy Lite 90 motor and clutch PM me. Has great compression, never tried to start it.  Price somewhere between free and a gift. If you did a project this summer, would you care to share them? DJ ION Auger HB.mp4  << Click link for video

      You may want to consider #3 ; Rapala Jiggin Raps, or drop shoting. They both have been putting some nice size suspended slabs topside under some breezy conditions as of late. Fishing sure was downright epic the last week for all species. To bad it looks like "global warmering" is coming to an end for this year, was awesome while it lasted...... Those are some decent perch panman54. LOL!

      Pretty remote and flat back there. I haven't been on that exact shoreline but I bet you can pull a boat up there quite easily.

      I didnt hear how the second day went yet.  The long term average is 8% success up to 10% during the 2 deer era.  so 5.7% isnt bad for day 1.   Cooler weather will hopefully help us second weekenders. I havent seen much for rubs or scrapes here yet, should be starting any day.
