      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 .

At the River Rat tourney several of us were talking about what appearred to be an algea bloom on the Croix. Well the St. Paul Pioneer Press web-site has an article that the St. Croix has been added to the list of polluted waters. Phosphorous seems to be the culprit so no wonder there was a bloom.....Sad to see this happening here.

Back home in Arizona there is an amoeba that is causing fatal brain infection that is being picked up while swimming. A boy just died from it after swimming in Lake Havasu one of the lakes formed on the Colorado River.

Went camping north of the high bridge this summer, and noticed the green algae bloom/globs. It appeared that it was coming from the large areas of backwaters around the apple river. With the deluge of rains it has pushed this stuff south. Up beyond the apple river the st croix looked very clean. But with the rains/hard winter this year, hopefully it will clean up.

Another note is that many boats have onboard toilets and by law they cannot dump the poo, but they can buy a grind pump from Florida (which allows them to dump in the ocean) that replaces their pump.... Not a nice thought, but I bet there are more boats than a person thinks.

There's "clearly" wink.gif more blooms than in the past, from my experience.

We usually swim with the kids on the high-bridge sandbars,

but there were Apple River turd-lets around every time we went up this past summer.

Then we tried at my in-laws house, just south of Beanies, only to find a St. Patrick's Day green swill on his beach.

Does anyone know the effect on the fish? Does it affect the bite differently for each species?

Here's a link to more info than you may want:

I have some land on Squaw Lake, which has a bloom issue. There is green and blue algae. Green is good, blue is poo. Green is the start of the food chain, which the DNR said was actually good, but I noticed that the fish taste off. The green algae may be the reason that people are seeing more baitfish surface feeding. This year on the Riveria, I have noticed more weeds where there were none, in over 25 years of fishing. If we get lots of snow this year, the croix should flush to normal. I have not used the camera, but last year I noticed that the top would be cloudy, and the bottom was clear. I think it is more of a temperature issue now. The water is way too hot.

      Thanks for the update cigarguy- were you lindy rigging?
    • CigarGuy
      Neighbor and I went out in Wakemup for a couple hours tonight and got a 18" and 19" and had a nice one come unbutton on the way in....Leaches and crawlers.  That's good for me!  20 - 34' off a break line.  Del, working on the last flight of the steps-was looking for you to stop by and help!

      I used lead core on Friday and had a ball catching walleyes of all sizes.  I started in the morning and stayed out until I just got tired in the afternoon.  I probably pulled in as many as 20 or so.  My formula was:  90 feet of line, 19-24 ft of water, #5 rattling split deep shad rap.  Silver color.  I kept it right at 2mph.  I also did much better when I pumped the rod in a regular cadence.  Keeping it in the rod holder didn't produce near the fish.

      Ace, I hope you enjoy your retirement.  I hired you one time and my boy and I had a good time.  I appreciate the hard work you did on putting us on fish.  Good Luck and maybe "Little Ace" can continue the family business some day!   Michael Theis

      These are legal aliens.  Glad you enjoyed your lunch.

      Trolling or casting jigs and spinners(silver or gold are best for pike IMO) near the weeds, in bays, etc, cranks, and top water buzz baits around weedy areas are how I get most of my pike. Use a leader. Orange jig heads with a sparkly yellow twister tail and a jumbo leech gets me more pike than any other method. Your mileage may vary.

      I had lunch there a couple of days ago. Great service and good food! I did not see any illegal type aliens there at that time!  Cliff
