      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 .

perch

will be making it out this weekend with a few other FMers and we'll be going after mainly jumbos. We'll be fishing the south side of the lake. Not looking for GPS coordinates, but any help as to what depth they'll inhale my lure in and what they're biting on is appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Someone at work was telling me the perch in Mille Lacs had some parasite in them and they weren't safe to eat. Is this true or is he full of it?

about 1 in 7 this fall had this parasite that looks like a patch of freezer burn. The DNR does not know exactly what it is but they say it won't hurt you, but i won't eat it is a fish has it i just toss it away-not worth getting sick on some unknown parasite-it is nasty looking meat. try the isle bay area for perch 9-12 feet of water should be best, either on the rocks or find weeds. spoons are the best bet because they will get you gamefish as well. use a minnow head and then switch to a [Note from admin: Please read forum policy before posting again.

Which parasite are you refering to?Black spot,Yellow grub or Heterosporis sp?All three are possible in (Contact Us Please) depending on which fish were talking about.All the parasites listed are fine (pose no threat to humans) as long as you cook the fish.(no sushi!)hope this helps.c63

The freezer burn looking parasite is Hetrosporis sp which was first discovered in Minnesota in 1999.It is (or was)imported to us from Thiland,germany,Japan or some other country(countries).Again if you cook the fish you will not be affected from this parasite!c63

many years ago I always used an eye from a perch or walleye for jigging, i was told this is not legal. law reads not being able to use gamefish or parts of gamefish for bait. I would love to know if it is legal...?

Not legal at all. I wouldn't risk it.

you can fuss over legalities while i'm catching fish. what would i be hurting by using a wasted piece of the carcass for bait? wink.gif

It is not "fussing over legalities" - what you say you are doing is clearly illegal. Catching fish or using wasted parts of the carcass does not justify it or make it right. It is illegal and it shouldn't be done.

Well if it is not legal, you should not have to fuss, you should just adjust fire and do what is legal. If you are willing to break that law to catch more fish does that mean you would bait deer to get more venison? Why stop there why not just drop a big net down the hole a catch fish that way. Maybe just let down several dozen treble hooks baited with perch eyes for a few days at a time and just come on back out and check on them. It is a law. Whether you agree with it or not it should be followed. Who are you to decide which laws should be followed and which should be ignored. Hey on the bright side at least it is a great example to set for kids that you can do whatever you want.

No, I don't wanna fall through the ice!!! I don't care if you like the law or not, you need to follow it. I had an uncle that would use a 1 inch chunk of pike tail meat and catch fish all day with it. It's illegal, don't do it. If I saw someone doing it, I would call TIP asap. Follow the laws, you can't pick and choose what you think is right or wrong.

Plus, I don't think it's right to pop an eye out of a fish...how would you like your eye being popped out? Just because you kill an animal doesn't mean you can't show it respect. And I'm sure plenty of you don't care, but that's just my opinion.

My thought exactly. Regardless of it's a perch or a white tail, if I decide that it's going to end up in my stomach, the least I can do is give it some respect. Think of it like this: if you were going to giving your life for someone else, you would want some respect in return.

Good to know the law is clear. i started fishing this lake 30+ years ago and "eyes" were what people used. I would jig in a house near my grandpas spear house. Remember when spearing was legal on mille lacs? Guess what he used for a decoy? A nice big perch. Im not sure when the law went into effect but its good to see the ethical anglers pay attention.
