      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 .

i was fly fishing on whitewater this spring and i landed a fish that looked like it was a cross of a rainbow and a brooky. it had the markings of a brooky but had the more silver color of a bow. is this a tiger trout. i was always told that a tiger was a brown and a brooky. or is the two kinds of tigers?

Did you get a pic of this mysterious fish then? The guy who holds the Tiger trout record for MN was a good friend of mine and they are a unqiue trout, they truly look like they have stripes thus "tiger trout". Anyway, not sure what that cross would be with a Rainbow and a Brook, did you contact anyone with DNR Fisheries? They might be able to help. I sure would like to see a pic of it.

So is there diferent Tiger Types? I was only aware of the Brown and Brookie cross. I will have to check his site out. They seem to have an interesting history. I heard that MN used to breed to produce them, but they are sterile fish and cannot reproduce on their own so it is no longer done. It is a rare catch for someone to get one here in MN, as far as I know of. Does WI do something different that they have so many more of them?

That would be great if you have a pic. Have you had a chance to send it to Tyler? He is great at posting pics. I am very interested in seeing this fish. Have you contacted the DNR yet? It would be interesting to see what they have to say about it as well.

Brook trout normally spawn after brown trout in late fall, but there is some overlap between the brown trout that spawn late and brook trout that spawn early so that is how you can get a cross between those two. Rainbow trout on the other hand spawn in the spring so I don't think there is any natural way for a brook trout and rainbow trout to cross breed. Brown trout coloration can vary significantly based on food source, time of year, water clarity etc so I suspect it was just related to one or more of those factors.

I've caught a couple tiger trout and that one looks like the ones I've caught except the color is "washed out". They tend to get a washed out color in dirty water or when they have been out of the water for awhile.

Yeah, that looks like one, but your right Mark it does look washed out. They are real neat looking fish, too bad there aren't more of them out there. Hey Looking California I will try to do a search on him I would like to check his website out. That was very good info too Mark on the spawning of trout. cool.gif

      Saw something interesting on forest lake this morning...lake was completely locked up, yet someone had launched their boat and was trudging through the ice! That’s dedication! Anyone have any ice updates to report?

      2 Trout stamps.  Did I miss something and need to go back and get another?

      The 200 foot rule gets me a little but it has to be defined somehow what is occupied and what isn’t.   So for a wheelhouse we get to buy tabs to have on the road and a sticker to have it on the ice and go away for a little while.  Seems pretty close to double taxation since any LE can find out who the owner is from the current plate. Plus the spear shack that I might want to keep up over the weekend.  2 tags plus license. Combination sports license 2 trout stamps Waterfowl stamps Pheasant stamp  Turkey license (stamp now included) Deer license for all seasons   The bucket is getting heavy with all the drops in it.

      Really no different than using your boat.  $14,000 fish house and $14.33/year is going to kill you?? What gets me is at the lake we are at in the summer, mostly out of state people in the campground and all of their boats, never leave that lake and they are all licensed out of state and not in MN.  That is a chunk of money the state does not see.

      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.
    • JerkinLips
      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.
