      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 .

Friday was excellent for us. Pulled cranks and that seemed to work the best. Nice fish - nothing huge but the bite was very good.

Hey Kaz. Computer has been acting up since Friday and I was up to the Winnepeg area for a bit visiting relatives over the weekend. Internet is working so far today yeehaw, Yahoo mail still goofy though.

Late recap of last couple weeks fishin.....Typical late September early October so far it seems. One day darn good the next a bit tougher, then throw on a way slow one. As always this time of year the fish seem to come in waves with lulls inbetween. Reliable morning bite out front of Pine with the obligatory sorting of weee fish, seems to wain out there around noonish. Water temps were running mid to upper fifties but with this nice cold snap those temps should be falling good now and hopefully them big girls will be showing up heavy soon in the river. I have'nt seen a fish over 25 yet myself, have'nt been up past Wabanica either. I took a skunkin Wednesday evening....2 bites in 2 hours, both a swing and a miss!!! Last Saturday was a tough one too with that wind, high point of that day was a 13.5 inch Crappie. Monday was one of those banner days, fickle bite on the lake but some jig/bait tricks got em going good out there. That afternoon anchored in the river was fantastico, and so was the weather that day.

Weather is looking good for you this weekend anyhow.

Good luck, maybe see you out there.

Norm

Fisky: Yes the days differed quite a lot!! Curt was right on with his suggestions though.. Sunday was GREAT.. Monday was a little slow in the rain, that wouldn't quit, and the the cold wind didn't help either.. Now the good, limited on Sunday by noon, ATE GREAT, got tired and hung out at the Place. Monday wasn't bad, but not like Sunday.. Got up this morning to SNOW, 4 inches of it. Left at 4AM and didn't get to Bemidji until 8AM. At times we were going only 40mph, but we were pulling the Sporty home for the winter... Now we're ready for the Ice!!! See you all up there for the first ICE... Kaz

We were up there on Oct 5,6,7...

The fifth was pretty good, the sixth we worked for them, and on Sunday we only fished for a few hours in the morning and it was pretty slow. I think the weather being so unstable didn't help matters. Lots of boats in the Gap, Four Mile Bay,and the river...all anchored up jigging shinners. Lots of fun...it was my first time up there...It won't be the last.

We fished from 17 to 22 FOW...most success being in the 19 foot range. No trophies but nice sized fish. I need to get back up there later this month! smile.gif

Hey Kaz, sounds like you pulled the plug for the summer 'eh. We're doing that this weekend. I really hate to see it come to a close, it was a fantastic summer with loooots of C/R fish. Headed once again to SD next week for the opener. Reports are numbers are way up so should be a good time with the three boys and two short hairs. Even with large numbers I've been known to miss my share, I prefer to call it shoot and release, makes for a better excuse. Won't be long and the water will be solid once more. Maybe this winter we can cross paths our first trip is 12/26, but you'll probably be in sunny Florida again by that time. Take care. Bill

      Well, I have to pay for registration on my boat trailer to run it on the road, and the boat to run it on the lake, why shouldn't wheel houses?  I guess I don't feel bad for the wheel house guys.

      No not yesterday. 2 weeks ago when we had that first cold spell I went out on Baxter, Blue and Long and checked the ice. They were locked up but only had 1-2" inches so didn't venture out too far. Baxter probably was walkable but had open water on the back end so figured I stay off. Last Sunday I went and checked them out after that warm rainy week we had and they had open water, so yesterday I skipped checking them and went farther north. But I did notice most lakes were locked up on the drive up there. Cant wait for the local lakes to get some decent ice!

      Wondering if big sandy is clear enough to spear fish when the ice comes on? Never done it before and would like to give it a try
    • monstermoose78
      Bryan did you check any lakes around me?
    • Bryan P
      Had to scratch the ice fishing itch, so I drove up north to the Mille Lacs lake area and found a smaller lake with 4-5" of ice. Punch a few holes and found some crappies and sunnies. Nothing big but was fun time and a great way to start my ice seaso n! Bring on the ice!  Check out the video: https://youtu.be/BTTv_G07PB8

      Hey, I resemble that remark!!   Plus my wife only went fishing with me once the whole time that we have been married and she brought a book! I got her trained in right away. Sorry about your training problem!
    • leech~~
      Ok but with all those Trout. Bring a tow rope as I may be stuck in the slush!
