      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 .

Howdy, dropped by your place after yesterday evenings fishing to have a barley pop and visit a bit with Northlander. Dropped him some minnows and while fishin out dead ones a 20 pound charcoal grey Kitty Couger wandered up and did some minnow chowing. I boated a Walrus last nite up your way, 30.5 inch no pinch Widebody, and when I grabbed my digital out of the truck to show the pics I left the door ajar.....When we went to leave I noticed we had a "stowaway" all curled up on my buddies fuzzy hooded parka in the back of the Durango! The guy was quite cozy and did'nt wanna leave. My wife would've loved him but I figured I had better leave him with you!

Curious, did you buy the place on the NW side of Little Oak?

I can not believe you stood out there for the better part of 2 hours and didn't even say hey! I just about came out to get your rig out of the middle of the parking lot but had been cold & wet for 3 days on the island and could not pry myself from the Lazy Boy and wood stove.

That cat, Hal, thinks he owns the place and any piece of equipment setting still here. He is on full feed with a strong supplement of minnows and cheeks. Tough life!

One of our customers recognized him on the shore at Frontier and brought him home, I had to go out to Adrians and pick him up once, and he road in my boat to Birchdale. He was not happy about staying in the Bronco all day. He has been gone for days at a time but must like it here cause he keeps coming back.

Heard you popped a pig! Should be hearing that more each day now. Maybe my turn this afternoon?

Our island is about 20 miles east of Little Oak or 10 miles NW of Morson. Tucked under the SW corner of Miles island.

Lots of work to do out there but is way cool! Having trouble staying on task being surrounded by all that up there. Constantly find myself just gazing out at it. Was sizing up a project on a deck the other evening and a 4' muskie came up about 20 feet away. Makes it hard to concentrate.

Will have to get you up there some time but don't even think about pulling in here again without saying hey!

I see the River continues to rise. How is the clarity of the river holding up? Any concerns about it getting too Muddy for the fishing this weekend? Or has the runoff been flushing through rather cleanly?

Hi Doug I finally got signed in on this site.... I caught a couple of 15" on Wed night down river about 4 miles from my house. I had countless little ones. Can't wait for the rain to stop so the current slows a little. I was in 11-12' in slow current, anchored, using a bare hook with a red bead and a white glow bead with a gold hook.... Frozen shiner of course... Sound familiar? lol Talk to ya later, I dropped off some firewood for ya.

      Thanks for chiming in and sharing how the river has been treating you lately. They sure are fun to catch. I am hoping to get out again this weekend for some more smallie action. Hopefully they are still near where I was able to find them last weekend....

      I fish pretty much exclusively above the Sartell dam.  I normally try to hit it 2-3 times per week.  Over the last 3 weeks, I thought the fishing was down right ridiculous(even with the crazy high water) at times, 12-20 fish in a hour or two before sunset.  I found them right up on the bank, and of course in slower moving water.  There are a few spots north of the dam that are great places for high water.  Some larger areas where the water can swirl around and create backwash.  In fact, I'll point my boat down right and put spot lock on, because the water is flowing back up river, and just cast parallel with the bank.  Most of the time I'll throw a Scatter rap, then when I see a fish chasing bait, I'll throw out a wacky rig.   I went out last weekend to a spot I've been hitting, and the fish have diminished big time.  Caught 6 in a couple hours.  Then I went out last night, and caught one walleye.   So, with that in mind I figured they had to of gone to the deeper rock piles.  And, sure enough, I caught 2 just before sunset, then I headed in.   If you have SI, just drive down or up river and look for large groups of rock piles.  Go up river from them, and try and do a controlled drift over the rocks.  I normally use a jig and a tube.  And there's no mistaken them when they hit.   Even a few eyes mixed in every once in a while.

      Ditto. I switched to a 3 inch shell in #2 shot. I missed a few wood ducks this morning but got one teal. Not bad for the WMA I was hunting. 2 ducks would be great. 3-4 like you won the lottery. Saw plenty of action but it was fast moving wood ducks out of range. Geese never showed. And you can't shoot trumpeter swans! There were plenty of those. Let my boy sleep in this morning. Tomorrow we'll hit the more pressured lake. I saw at least one person setting up on it this morning on my drive to the WMA. The nice thing about that - when you're almost certain you'll be the only one there - is that you can roll in not long before shooting time if it doesn't take you long to set up.
    • Bigfatbert
      Hey Moose , sounds like some tough shooting as of late for you at those duckies . Just curious as to what choke you are using ?

      Has anyone ever stored with Oak Narrows Storage before? Need a spot to put a Polaris Ranger for the winter and thinking of calling them for a space, does anyone have any experience or feedback? Any other recommendations would be welcome. Need a 10x10 or 10x12 space likely.
      Thanks!
