      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 .

Deep Fishing NOT ALWAYS A GOOD THING.

Recommended Posts

hhguide

One thing that I Notice that should be a huge concern for fisherman though is pulling the fish out of 38 feet of water or deeper a new STUDY says that anything deeper than 38 feet of water 70% of those fish die I was just informed by A well known fisherman. So fisherman look out of where your pulling those fish out from the big fish aren't always deep. and watch that depthfinder when you get below 38 feet start looking to go back up that bank. I know that I wont be fishing in anything deeper than 25 feet. Unless you dont want to be fishing for those marble eyes in 5 to 10 Years.

Just wanted to hear some questions and thoughts about the subject!

I have always known that as a rumor until fishing out on Miltona one year and jigging out in 50 fow when we started catching walleyes and when we got them up to the surface their swim bladders were hanging out of their mouth and they were bleeding out of their gills. I asked about it and was told it was the same thing that a diver gets if they assend out of deep water to fast you get the "bends" .

I don't believe it to be a rumor. I got a wall hanger walleye up north one winter and within a minute of it being out of the water, the eyes popped out of his head. Luckily I was keeping him anyway, but I was told by the guides that the fish probably went through the bends as well, as it came from 45 fow.

I didn't mean to imply that I still think of at as a rumor anymore after my expeirance out on Miltona that year. I now will not fish that deep for any fish that more. I have also fished crappies on a lake around Alex that were in 30 fow 6" off the bottom and the same thing happen. I don't know if it was because it was in the winter or because 30 fow is too much. Someone once told me to try binging them up slower, didn't seem to make any difference frown.gif

It's not the bends, or nitrogen narcossis (nitrogen "boiling" or coming out of solution in the blood), it's just a sudden absence in pressure of having 50 feet of water on top of you.

Fish wouldn't really get "the bends" unless you pulled them from really deep, like over 100 feet, and if they had a lot of nitrogen in their bloodstream.

But as has been mentioned, you need to keep this in mind when fishing that deep-you probably won't be able to release the fish. It's either keep them for eating or don't fish them because you won't be able to release them. A fish's gas bladder just can't cope with such drastic changes.

Also, in the dogs days of summer (especially this last year), it was a good ideal to not fish for anything you didn't want to keep.

The hot surface water killed many fish caught.

If you are a catch-n-release fisherman, you really should have taken a little time off. I did for the fish I didn't plan on eating. Hard to do if you are on a lake with slot limits though.

HHGuide: Is that some kind of water pressure thing like a scuba diver getting the bends if he comes up too fast? It sure sounds like it. I always thought the fishes swim bladder adjusted for things like that? You sure learn a lot in these forums. I will remember that one and fish nothing deeper than 25 feet from now on. I am into catch and release. Especially for the bigger, breeding stock type fish. If you are going to catch it, eat it. If you are going to eat it, eat the smaller ones and put the big boys back. They are the future of fisihg and keep a lake or river healthy.

Yea nailed it on the Head. I know when i'm fishing at anytime anything over 20 inches goes back right away. Whether i'm prefishing for a tournament, just fishing or guiding. Unless its big enough to put on the wall. I agree with you we need to save those bigger fishing and only keep what your going to eat!

      The wife and I were up to L O W  for whole week. Great weather, good fishing and fun time. Was able to fish 7 days split up between Morris point, Long point and the river. For me Long point was the better bite. May have seen a couple members of outdoors Mn on Tuesday out of LP. Let me know if I'm right. Also met member from Wisc. at Morris point( real good guy) Anyway didn't seem to matter much what color jig caught them on every color with frozen shiner. Some days were better then others but always caught fish. Ate several meals of fish and brought fish home. Also caught a 14 in perch that I brought into taxidermist. Plan on going back at least one more time this fall . ( Too good not to).

      Got some grouse and saw some nice coveys. The biggest was 6 birds but found couple groups of 5. That is always fun.

      we mainly jigged fatheads in front of their mouths. 2 weeks ago also and tried a few different times over 3 days this trip. water is still crazy low so I don't think many boats will be using access. Also tried a couple different plastics and some gulp. Probably ready to go crazy up there soon.  Last year at this time it was really good. Might get there once more before ice time but not sure.

      Been thinking about breaking out the Jiggin Raps, might have to give that a shot. It's been too crowded out there this weekend with MEA going on.

      Sounds good! May an oversized deer with obscenely large antlers find its way to you!

      Well the weather was pretty crappy but the fish were biting...Had to sort through but kept some for dinner. Caught a variety today, eyes,jumbos,crappie and a few smallies... rigging on or next to rocks worked best for us.
