      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 .

Could anyone tell me how many boats usually attend the tourney? I have not been around this tourney before. Does the river get pretty busy that day?

I wouldn't be bothered by the number of boats in the tourney so much as the number of pleasure boaters that will be getting out for their "one last trip" excursion. I'm going to ask one last time very nicely: Mother Nature, how about a little rain on Saturday?

Walli1,

Did some pre-fishing and run timing last weekend. With my 17 foot starcraft with a 90 merc on back at 8/10 open throttle it is a 22 minute run from Beanies to the no wake at the Kinny (and yes I did go no wake through Afton). I know your waters are south of there so you would only lose an hour to be in your home waters. BTW we couldn't catch a walleye last weekend for anything. Only second time being blanked on the river this year.

Good luck to all on Saturday.

Got confirmation from the war dept and my fishing partner just tonight......I am in! Yes! Even though I was totally demoralized last year with my one walleye, a gar and a few dozen sheepies, I have to fish this again! Hope to meet up with a bunch of you guys out there! Last year I would say there were thirty five to forty boats fishing and there were a handful that smacked the heck out of the fish while we novices scratched our heads. Don't be put off by it, many of these guys fish the river week in and out and put people on fish. Enjoy the day, enjoy the people you meet and hopefully put a few fish in the well. It all goes to a good cause so we can't lose! Fish against the best, learn a few tricks, get a whole day on the water, what more can you ask for. Good luck out there, enjoy the day the good Lord gave you and.... tight lines!

Tunrevir..good to hear yer gonna make it this year.As I plunk away at this keyboard with my two index fingers,Its pouring out.2 full inches of rain so far tonite,I had some decent fish working last Sunday but I think that plan has flowed downstream now.With no chance to get out before the tourney Ill be going into it blind,but sometimes thats the best way.By reading the posts here,sounds like the FM gang will make a pretty good show.All it takes is a pig or two and some other legals to place high in this.Most years 13 to 16lbs will win it.Good luck to all and I hope to get to meet you guys down at beanies.Blueroof!!!!!! you dont need to preregister at beanies,just show up and sign in and pay Saturday morning,glad you found a partner.

Croixeyes, sounds like we may finally cross paths! I am hoping the cold front and the weather dies back a touch before Saturday. It has been a couple weeks since I was in that area and I am thinking there may be a shift in where the fish hide with the runoff from all this rainfall. I may have to shift my plans slightly as well. The good news is, I always love the bite when there is runoff and dirty water, seems to get the fish going! Good luck out there, I'll be the guy with the faded blue/gray Mickeymouse hat on. say hello if you see me!

Tunrevir~

I’m in and fired up! Say to any of you FM current nuts out there, do you have any basic (not looking for spots) advice for us stable water folks for presentations following heavy rains? Thanks so much! Good luck to you all and have a safe day!

      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

      I was up for a long weekend this past weekend. For us the only thing that was working leadcore with cranks 18-24fow looks of eaters but not one over 18" couldn't get the digging raps rigs or jog and minnow to go but I'm sure it's not far off caught about half of mine on cranks when I was turning and didn't seem to matter weather the pole was on the inside or outside 2.2 2.4 was our speed flicker shads and deep runner raps #5 and 7. Cliff what style and size of hook do u use for your minnow rigs? Any beads used?

      This weekend near grand marais on thursday and Friday the no see ems were out. A few skeets but once it cooled down the no see ems were gone. Fished a lake that known for horrible bugs and it was not bad.

      That's correct.  For now.

      We did well today from 1-4pm on an underwater point. Finally found some fish in a semi-sheltered area. Last few days have been tough to control the small light boat with all the wind. Most caught on pink jigs in 21-30ft.  Cliff I did try the circle hook lindy today with the big minnow and nailed the first bite I had. Next 2 bites grabbed it hard but dropped it. Work in progress!
