      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 think I'm going to brave the cold this weekend. It's either hardcore or really dumb.

I'm trying to decide if I want to keep hammering the panfish or go after bigger prey ('eyes and slimers). I've been having great luck with the perch, crappies, and gills on duck. I'm thinking about hitting Frances, Elysian, or Tetonka. I haven't been out on those lakes yet, except Frances without any luck. If anyone wants to meet up let me know. My electronics are shot and I'm relying on a small auger right now, so that part is kinda rough for fishing. Any suggestions would be appreciated, if they work out I'll share the info. I think I'm going to be going out early tomorrow, like 7ish, so if anyone wants to meet up, let me know.

Definition of cold: when you spit and it bounces off the snow.

Wasn't a bad morning caught 6 crappies, 2 sunnies, and a teeny perch. I got out to the lake (Duck, been good for panfish so I couldn't argue with previous success) about 7:30 and started fishing about 8. I was in 20+ feet of water and a foot off the bottom and they were hitting on wax worms and crappie minnows. I tried moving the bait up and down in the water and a few crappies where 5-10 feet off the bottom. They seemed to move up about 9:30 and around ten they shut off for the most part. I did some light jigging and let the bait set for a few minutes and that worked pretty well: I even pulled a sunny up on a minnow. I was comfortable with the heater and proper clothing, didn't even wear my jacket. The holes froze up around the edges a little and the slip bobbers froze but other than that -15º was no problem.

I braved Friday and Saturday. We got a few sunnies and crappies, but it was pretty slow. Did get 1 5lb northern that gave a good battle.

I went out for the better part of Saturday. We hit a few crappies and sunnies on Roberds in the morning and early afternoon. Tried Mazaska for awhile in the afternoon and early evening, found a few small 'eyes and a couple of crappies. Noting to be really proud of, it might have been chilly but it was still a good day on the lake.

      I've gotten a lot of eyes this year, this being my best. Several in the 24" range and a LOT of eaters. A buddy and I took my mom out fishing and we got our limit of eater eyes in about an hour and a half. Good times!

      Nice! That looks like a good time.

      Let us know how it goes. I have a cabin on Linwood just off Whiteface. Be nice to find good spots in the area, seeing as for whatever reason I never fish Linwood...

      What a morning jigging on one of the best, fastest bites of the summer for me Tuesday morning of this week.  I had a guide trip but they cancelled that morning and I almost stayed on shore. Since I had the boat in the water and everything was set I went out by myself to check out a couple of spots.  I didnt get very far

       Anyone have any good news or been up there lately waz up  over the Fourth of July did OK nothing to brag about a few walleyes  or any other lakes around the area not looking for hotspots or nothing trying to catch a few panties
    • jj56342
      OK thank you thinking about going up first week in September

      Low water continues to be the issue on the Red. Below the dams still remains sketchy so use boats at your own risk.  The fishing remains stable, similar to last week in that the fish are spread out but in the holes in the middle of the river.  Short 15-20 minute sits on spots keeping the bait fresh looking for the active catfish.
        Bait is still heavy to frogs and frozen suckers with goldeyes working some but it seems that frog and sucker are the best.  As water cools down I suspect fresh sucker will come into play as well.

      I used to have many fields but some guides came in and pay for the fields. I am down to 3 farms but they don't have any small grains this year. So I am going to take the early season off. As I know the geese will use some ponds to rest and I have access to them so I will wait until the regular season to pick off a few geese.
