      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 .

Are there still any salmons in the rivers? I finally have time again to come out after weeks! But I'm hoping there are still a few decently fresh kings this late in the season. Actually...I'll take any salmon at the moment! I just want to catch a few and snap some pictures. Anyone have any river reports? I'll probably head up the north shore. Thanks!

most of the salmon are done in the rivers, but there are still a few beat up ones around from what i hear and still a few kings trickling in. if you want trout and salmon your best bet might be from shore near a river mouth, loopers and steelhead should be showing up. Rivers look great, but I personally haven't had much success on the north shore streams as of late.

If you don't mind, what are the primary techniques for loopers and steelhead?

It was a nice saturday to be on the water. We got there around 7am. Nice calm day! A bit chilly but it warmed up nicely. There were only a few fishes here and there. We picked up a few deteriorating pinks and 2 dark steelies. We did see a nice dark king but he wasn't interested in anything we offered. Takes a bit of walking to find fish! He was in about 3 pools up from the mouth. All fishes were released to fight another day! All in all it was a nice warm day! We left about 3pm. Made it up only to Beaver Bay. Boy are those fall colors out! If you guys haven't....go take a drive up! You'll love the warm colors! Good luck guys!

I've fished steelies quite a bit in OH on the Chagrin and Rocky rivers. Most of the guys use a small jig tipped with maggots on a small float. Float it down through the 'seems' in the rivers.

Never fished the north shore, is that the preferred technique there as well.

3ball, use the search feature, there is a limitless supply of info for steelies and loopers, there are so many ways to fish them depending whether from a boat, shore, or in the streams, that looking up past posts is your best option.

From the title of this thread I thought it was a personal ad. Woman seeks any fresh guy grin.gif

      Great news to hear! Hopefully it will make enough tonight and hope it isn't going to get as warm as they say. Fingers crossed!

      Was hoping to come up with a 1/2 ton and a 16ft wheel house Dec. 1st.  Any thoughts if the ice will be think enough to go out of Hillmens?

      Took a drive around Lake Osakis earlier. It appears the cold and calm winds we had last night made a lot of ice. From what I could tell it appeared the lake was locked up except there was a small open area in Manthey's Bay that had a couple trumpeter swans swimming around and another small area in front of Holiday Resort that had some ducks swimming around. The rest was all ice, thin ice. Don't know if it will hold up over the next 5 days. High of 38 tomorrow, 46 and showers on Friday with high winds, 36 Saturday, 44 Sunday and 44 Monday. The lows over night aren't going to dip very low. If it was a few inches thick I wouldn't be to concerned, but as thin as it is, could be bad.

      Not by itself it won't but they raised the price on licenses for everything. Once you add it all up I'll bet you never got that big of a raise at your job. I paid for an ATV license since they first came out and we didn't get squat for it for over 20 years. What a joke, not to mention debacles like Mille Lacs Lake management. AAARRGGHHH!!  I gotta quit now before I pop a vein.

      Thanks for the updates.  Think I will play it safe and wait until Thursday, November 30 to go out from McKinley Park.

      7" of good clear ice in the couple holes I drilled in Pike Bay this morning.

      not sure why its not showing I'm posting? Anyway walking out on the south shore gets you in deeper water quicker. Yes they do bite on red lake during the dark. I hardly ever go on the lake early ice unless Buddy Hillmen needs my help. Once I drive on the lake with blue thunder I will be on her just about everyday un  tell mid march if mother nature cooperates.

      Can anyone recommend a place nearby the Metro Area where a person can take their air rifle to sight in the scope since you cannot shoot them in city limits.  Plus, probably not smart to just pull up to a random field to sight in, either.  Thanks!!

      Went out early Sunday on smaller lake before the Vikes game...5" of good ice and it was growling so making more before it warmed up. Caught a bunch...pic of the dozen crappies we kept...but it was fast and furious from 7-9am
