      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 .

buoys removed and lots of deadheads around Stillwater

The coast guard removed the buoys this morning around Stillwater. Lots of debris, including some rather pesky deadheads floating around with all the water this Fall. The river went up another 5 inches from 7am to noon today, you need to add 1-2ft to the Lakemaster contours (where accurate.)

Went out to the Hudson launch and everything looked flooded. The loading docks were flooded, and the river choppy from the strong winds. Turned around and went lake fishing instead. frown.gif

My buddy and I fished the river from just north of Prescott through Hudson channel on Sunday thinking the overcast, chop drizzle would turn in some decent fish. Unfortunately I was WRONG and got SKUNKED for the first time ever on the river. When I say skunked I mean no fish not even a sheephead???? Talked to fellow fishermen and none of them were catching anything. Can someone tell me if it was the rising river or why I couldn't catch a fish? We saw the Coast Guard guys pulling buoys and they actually loaded their boat up right after we did at Beanie's. My fishing partner got the thumbs up from them for putting the boat straight on the trailer despite the fast current and whitecaps on the first attempt. I don't know what those two did to get stuck with that duty on such a lousy day. I saw at least 5 trunk size dead heads floating in the Hudson channel, and the current was so swift in the Kinny channel it wasn't worth even trying. Just had to vent as it looked like the perfect conditions and then to blank after sitting in rain sucked. I did bump into the Griz at a local watering hole later and tried to get his wisdom and he just laughed and said he knew it would be bad and that is why he went pheasant hunting confused.gif

Got on the river around 11:00 am yesterday. trolled south of 94 bridge...

Caught 16",18" Eye and 1 small sheephead.

Caught all of them in 20+ feet of water.

Started shallow and moved deeper as the day progressed...When the wind picked up and the rain started was when I caught them all back to back. Don't know if I was just trolling the wrong depth or the rain.

I thought it was going to rain so we left at about 1:30pm.

Meet a guy at the Hudson launch...he says he caught six up north near bayport - also about 20+.

Tried trolling shallow to 20 FOW with no luck. Bounced lindy rigs, and jigs. Nothing....... Very humbling.

While trolling continually had leaves foul our lures even the deep divers. The only fish-like thing I caught was a 36 inch tree branch that actually snapped right at the boat so I don't think I can even count that.........

Going to try lake fishing this next weekend confused.gif

When the waters up like this try shallow shallower and even shallower, if its real flooded try in the rees, river eyes are not as effected by sunlight because of the stained water. try pitching jigs with plastics (ringworm), the constant movement of the tail on the ringworm puts out moer vibration and allows the fish to find it in muddier water easier, dont rule out rattle traps either or other loud crankbaits!

      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
