      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 .

Muskies and Crappies

Recommended Posts

EsoxCop

I have recently noticed the major interest in anglers all over the state choosing to fish muskies over bass and crappies over walleyes. The number of muskie anglers has risen drastically over the last 5 years and just look at the attention red lake got in its crappie years. I think red attracted many more crappie anglers than it does walleye anglers. We need to get something going and get a lake stocked with muskies in our area to help out with muskie angling pressure (too many anglers and not enough lakes).

- My two cents

I am going to a couple meetings with Musky or Mukie inc and if anyone in the Kandiyohi cty area wants to get it going ,simply attend the St.Cloud Sportmens Show and talk to guys in booth there.

Its going to really get a lot of opposition but it could be done[getting MUSKY in a lake near home]

I hope you would be willing to get on with something[so I am asking ]would you be willing to put a few hours and a couple trips into starting it here???

I will try to help

Can a few of you guys help.

others that oppose maybe could start a site on why not to have them

Go to the fish by species section here {musky]

I read in it that a 60 page paper is written for comprehnsive stocking from DNR and its thoughts show Green or Koronis as 2 of lakes being acceptable for 8 lakes to include musky in the future.

It would include one of these 2 as of now.

great first small mouth, now musky. Hey I agree they are a blast to catch, and I do fish for them, but Green is not a musky lake never has been never will be. They are in there now, and I only say that because I have caught one there it was 34" and I caught it over by the DQ bar 3 years ago. I don't think they can spawn in the lake, and if they can't spawn then they don't belong in the lake. I know they stock walleye's in the lake, but they also repreduce in the lake naturally. So I'd say NO to the musky. So let the fire storm from both side of the isle start.

I'm all for it. It would be nice to have a muskie lake closer to home.

      Did a few off season projects waiting for Ice. - Underwater camera, Fish Finder, Wheel house mods and the latest converting a 2 cycle Jiffy Lite 90 to an ION battery auger. Got the auger off Craiglist for $10, Drill for $15. Second stage of gear box is a 5 to 1 reduction so got the auger blade to turn at about 250 RPM which I feel is an ideal speed. Gear reduction also doubled the torque of the motor drive. Planning to use the Dewalt 20V ION battery as I already have charger and now converting one of the 1.5 AH batteries to either 9 or 12 AH.  If anyone needs a mid 80's Jiffy Lite 90 motor and clutch PM me. Has great compression, never tried to start it.  Price somewhere between free and a gift. If you did a project this summer, would you care to share them? DJ ION Auger HB.mp4  << Click link for video

      You may want to consider #3 ; Rapala Jiggin Raps, or drop shoting. They both have been putting some nice size suspended slabs topside under some breezy conditions as of late. Fishing sure was downright epic the last week for all species. To bad it looks like "global warmering" is coming to an end for this year, was awesome while it lasted...... Those are some decent perch panman54. LOL!

      Pretty remote and flat back there. I haven't been on that exact shoreline but I bet you can pull a boat up there quite easily.

      I didnt hear how the second day went yet.  The long term average is 8% success up to 10% during the 2 deer era.  so 5.7% isnt bad for day 1.   Cooler weather will hopefully help us second weekenders. I havent seen much for rubs or scrapes here yet, should be starting any day.

      HooDoo Point, Everett Bay public landing, or the Casino are all good landings if you want to fish Big Bay. The Y-Store or  the Food and Fuel in Tower both have good bait. Cliff

      Anything from moccasin point west can be pretty spotty with Verizon. If you're on big bay it's tough to beat

      I just read an article in the paper recently, that pout fest might be relocated to Lake Bemidji in 2018. It never gave a reason why though. Anyone know anything?
