      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 .

Best spots on the Miss between Elk River & St. Cloud

My wife and I will be looking at properties between Elk River & St. Cloud on the Mississippi. What stretch is the best for a bigger boat? I would also like to know what areas might be better for Muskie fishing. Any help would be appreciated.

If you are looking at property up on that stretch of the river you should head over and look at the river pro boats as well. That way you don't have to worry about the boat, just worry about the property itself. You will find it much more appealing.

Below the St Cloud dam there are very few muskies. Get above the St Cloud dam and north, and you are set.

I second the Riverpro suggestion. This summer there was pretty much no where below the St Cloud dam you could run a prop boat of any size, except down in Anoka.

Yeah, what he said, even the Rock Finder only made it to Elk River once this year. Get a River Pro, it's the only practical boat to cover this water.

I just happen to know of a house for sale in the Anoka stretch. smirk.gif

Above the dam in Sartell would be your best bet if you want to run a prop boat, but that is a little North of St. Cloud. Otherwise, RiverPro all the way! Which is not a bad thing grin.gif

Yep, Sartell.

They are pulling the plug.

COON RAPIDS DAM RECREATIONAL POOL

LOWERING SET FOR WEEK OF OCTOBER 22

Three Rivers Park District will begin lowering the six-mile recreational pool above the Coon Rapids Dam on or about Oct. 22.

It will take approximately one to two weeks to lower the pool. Lowering of the pool is intentionally planned at a slower rate this year in order to perform routine inspections of the dam, as well as to minimize increased flow at the 35W bridge site. During the winter, the gates of the dam will be held open and the river will be allowed to run unconstrained.

Operated by Three Rivers Park District as part of Coon Rapids Dam Regional Park, the 1,000-foot dam spans the Mississippi River between the cities of Brooklyn Park and Coon Rapids.

      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.

      get a guide for a day
