      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 .

Just wondering if anyone has been fishing the Rock lately. Thinking about giving it a try in the next few days. I think the wind is supposed to go down tommorow so the temps should be okay out there

I didn't think there was fish left there after the toxic [PoorWordUsage] they had last summer.

The sand bar on the north end and the sunken island have been kickin out eyes last Wed & Thur. Once the temp climbs back up a little and the pressure drops they should be good again. The neighbors haven't had trouble cleaning 4 0r 5 each time out. There are still alot guys fishing the south end at the turn in 9 fow. Yesterday i tryed 12 to 13 and was the first time for the big zero, had to eat pizza last night.

I just heard from someone whose wife had contacted the DNR and was sent to an advisory group that told her that people were not to be eating any fish from Little Rock. Makes you wonder what they are worried about. I can't imagine it's the blue algae from the summer bloom.

If the DNR knowns something, wouldn't they have it posted around the lake and let all home owners around the lake know about it.I live on Little Rock and have heard nothing yet. I was told tonight that some fish from the Rock were tested at SCSU and nothing was found. If there is some bad stuff in there, they might have to drain it down, dredge it out and start all over

I've caught quite a few walleyes out of the rock this winter, everyone of them has been 20" never bigger or smaller. Anyone else having the same results?

I've never kept fish from the lake, especially this year.

Are you kidding? For that Mississippi backwater pond?? It would be a waste of time and money for the DNR to do that on Little Rock, and should focus on more pressing issues. There is a reason why the lake is what it is, from road & farm field run off to rotting vegetation decay on the bottom of the lake from flooded meadow fields to insufficient septic systems that were around and still are to some present lakeshore/home owners, where back in the day my dad and grandpa told me people would just run their septic straight into the lake. There isnt enough flowage/current to ciculate the water as it is a backwater pond of the Mississippi.

the algae bloom in the lake isn't going to hurt the meat...I wouldn't hesitate to eat a fish out of that lake in the winter or spring. Hopefully the bloom isn't so severe this summer. I don't venture near the lake in the summer though--don't need my boat stained green!

Has fishing pressure been heavier or lighter then usual because of the boom?

Every time I've been out there this year there seemed to be quite a few people out there. I don't think it affected pressure noticably. After this cold snap I'm sure there will be more permanents and vehicles driving all over.

      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!
    • Daniel Anderson
      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.
