      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 .

Papa Grump boats MONSTER eyeball!

Got out on the river for a few hours this evening with Hanson.

After we were out for a while, we were greeted by a RiverPro occupied by Papa Grump and fellow fisherman Scott J.

We worked the area together for a while and then they headed to a new spot. About 15 minutes later, back cames the pro and I see PG shaking in his shoes, he points down to the livewell and is speechless.

He reaches down and pulls this out:

No long arming here......this is the real deal!

Later we found out that as he was unhooking it, Scott boated a 24".

Of course we moved to "their" spot after thatgrin.gif

Not much later, Scott lands another 24"er and about 10 minutes later our boat got into the action with this heathly eye:

Hanson's highlight of the day was hooking a big ol whitey on a Chubby Darter cool.gif

Congrats PapaGrump on a great fish!

What a beaut.

I let him give the surprising numbers on his fish.

As a comparison, my fish was 26" and just under 8lbs.

I don't know what to say!

Today was unbelievable. This weekend was unbelievable.

That big ole White Bass was a hoot when he smacked that LOD CD-6 Chubby Darter. I guess I have the white bass skills. Caught a couple on ringworms, caught a few on jig & minnow, and caught the biggest on a Chubby Darter. grin.gif Couldn't keep them off my line, couldn't buy a walleye bite however.

But that really doesn't matter after being witness to Papa Grump's Sumo eye! They were sooo excited after catching it, they forgot to pull anchor when they buzzed down to show us the fish. Sorry Brian... it had to be said. grin.gif

Congrats on the monster! 29" & 11lbs, 2oz is an unbelievable fish!

I knew there was a reason I didn't go deer hunting this weekend.

Here's another photo!

That is definitely a FAT river 'eye. Wow. Nice job, guys! Great day to be on the water, that's for sure.

Gas for fishing trip on riverpro: $30

Anchor to replace the other one: $30

11+ pound river walleye on 60 degree Nov day: PRICELESS!

Oh no... they still have the anchor. Only guy I know with steel winch cable for an anchor rope. grin.gif

BTW Aanderud- I've got your fishing rods. You left them in my boat last night.

Speachless doesn't descibe my biggest walter caught to date. I remember a few words, like Scott get the dang net and about 15 Oh MY God words flying around. I have never seen such shoulders on a 'eye like that before.

Scott did a great job netting the fish on the first swipe smirk.gif

And the anchor thing? I just couldn't figure out why the trolling moter quit working after we headed back to the "spot" till I realized that there was 25 feet of rope hanging off the front end of the 'pro yet, anchor still attached to it no less. blush.gif

Definately "priceless"

I should add that the old girl was released and is there for someone else to tangle with someday as well.

any tips on areas to target in the rivers??? I try inlets and outlets with minimal luck. I try to use larger baits and still can't find anything big. I try seams from shore too!

Now I know why I couldn't get a hold of you on Sunday Darren.......

Nice fish guys.

Just want you all to know I am thinking about you while I am sitting on a beach in southern California this week.

Sounds like the weather is going to take a turn for the cold before I get back on Thursday night.

Sorry I missed you John. I wasn't able to get out at all on Sat and Sun, not till later. I knew you wanted to get out in the morning and figured you found someone to go with you.

No worries, these fish will be there for a while, get your sun, get back, and we'll hit it again before ice up. cool.gif

Hey there Ed, I'll be open later this week on Friday or Saturday. I have boats to service and put away ( not mine yet)and some projects I've neglected to finish up on this fall. I'll give you a shout later.

Gunderson- Hanson pretty much nailed it further up in the post as to where and how we are fishing. Current breaks/seams is the key in the fall. What produces today, may not produce tomorrow so you have to move around, but look for deeper water for a start.

      1st time ever I've seen zebra mussels in ottertail on west side   this SUCKS!!!!   had a red solo cup in the water... apparently they love RED.     at least 5 of them    it sucks
    • Wanderer
      From someone who grew up as a back reeling aficionado, I've learned to appreciate a quality drag on a reel.  It's the one thing I'll gladly pay for. Modern drag systems are so much better than they used to be.  Not taking advantage of them is leaving a lot of the value of a quality reel on the table.  Unused and wasted. So, is that the kind of opinion you were looking for?

      They are already established in OT.  Pulled docks at my sisters place with about 75% covered in zebes.  Wear shoes when your in the water.
    • Meterman
      I noticed this spring that the higher end Shimano Stradic and others have eliminated the ability to back reel (no reverse) which I believe is a huge mistake, I don't like it!    any others have comments?

      Went up north grouse hunting it was fun. I must say having a dog makes it better.  This weekend is duck opener and I am jacked up for it. 
    • SkunkedAgain
      The public launch at The Landing on the west end stays open until the ice sets in, but they do pull the dock sometimes around the end of October / beginning of November.

      Just curious if people are finding fish moving into fall patterns yet or still finding them in more summer locations?  I've been finding good sized panfish in deeper water myself around more mid lake structure. Most of the lakes I've been on are still pretty green with algae and weeds.

      Captain Acorn, I use Gamagatu  octopus hooks. Size 4 for crawlers and size 2 for minnows. Red, black, chartreuse, and pink , mostly red and black. I use orange and green glow soft beads at times. (Worked today!) Cliff
