      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 .

Sportsman's Sleepers?

Recommended Posts

randyfaas

Tagging along this up coming weekend with a group of 5. We're going out of Sportsman's Sleepers. Just wondering if anyone can give a recent report or feedback about these sleepers.

Thanks-Randy.

I was up last weekend in a Riverbend sleeper (10th-13th) and were within sight of some of the sportsmans sleepers. Their sleepers seemed to be spread out from our location (34 fow 5 miles over pine) and then back toward Pine along a road which I think is maintained by Sportsman's. That road and their houses are tucked up against the Canadian border along that distance. I would imagine given the proximity to our location that bite would have been similar - see my report from early last week (Riverbend Sleeper Jan 10-13)...

Good Luck!

The sleepers are great accomodations with bunks, kitchenette, and folding chairs and table so it makes sleeping and eating a breeze. The sleepers are also pretty spacious and have an outhouse as well.

Just got back about a few hours ago staying at Sportmans Sleepers. We had four houses for a group of 19 guys. The result was about a bucket and half of fish for each house each day. Fishing wasn't fast and furious but consistant. We all had a good time and the fish frys were great.

The houses are very comfortable. I took my 8 year boy and 7 year old girl up with me last year and we had a great time. The house is very comfortable and the security of the radio in the house really is nice. The beds are great and the temperatures seem to be regulated very well. Plus, we caught a fair amount of fish. Needless to say, I booked again. We will be back soon!

Does anyone know where they have their sleepers know? Heading up there in a couple weeks and was just curious. Also, do they move them around a lot to get on fish or do they keep them in one spot. Thanks.

I talked to Sheri yesterday...going to stay in one early in February here - She said they are moving the houses almost everyday to stay on the fish and right now they are in about 32 feet of water.

We've been staying in Sportsman's Sleepers for the last 4 years and will be back in March. Dan, Tyler, Sheri and the others do a very good job. The Sleepers are very comfortable and spacious. We've had very good luck fishing as well. As far as moving the houses we have always come to a freshly moved house and if you want to move, they will move you. If you need anything they will get it. All in all we have been very happy with everything.

Dan is the man. The fish like all kinds of minnows and most colors.

Finally talked the wife into doing this (sleeper house LOW) year. However, she heard news of the tragedy this past weeek and now she's not real comfortable. Ive never gone before but would love to.. Has there been any issues like this in any of the sleepers that are rented out up there? Any information would be great, I still would love to do one of these trips. Thanks, in advance, the Perch

All of their sleepers have co detectors and vents in them but we always bring an extra for piece of mind. You can't be too safe.

      Can anyone report on fishing on Rainy River this week?
    • Tony S
      Headed up this weekend for the first trip of the fall.  Thinking about fishing the lake with all the good reports from there, but has anybody been up to Clementson, Frontier or Birchdale  areas recently that could give a report?  Thanks.

      VG, Good bite most days now! All minnows for me. jigs or lindys. Chubs, shiners, and pike suckers. Found walleyes from 8' to 40' yesterday. Cliff

      Thanks for chiming in and sharing how the river has been treating you lately. They sure are fun to catch. I am hoping to get out again this weekend for some more smallie action. Hopefully they are still near where I was able to find them last weekend....

      I fish pretty much exclusively above the Sartell dam.  I normally try to hit it 2-3 times per week.  Over the last 3 weeks, I thought the fishing was down right ridiculous(even with the crazy high water) at times, 12-20 fish in a hour or two before sunset.  I found them right up on the bank, and of course in slower moving water.  There are a few spots north of the dam that are great places for high water.  Some larger areas where the water can swirl around and create backwash.  In fact, I'll point my boat down right and put spot lock on, because the water is flowing back up river, and just cast parallel with the bank.  Most of the time I'll throw a Scatter rap, then when I see a fish chasing bait, I'll throw out a wacky rig.   I went out last weekend to a spot I've been hitting, and the fish have diminished big time.  Caught 6 in a couple hours.  Then I went out last night, and caught one walleye.   So, with that in mind I figured they had to of gone to the deeper rock piles.  And, sure enough, I caught 2 just before sunset, then I headed in.   If you have SI, just drive down or up river and look for large groups of rock piles.  Go up river from them, and try and do a controlled drift over the rocks.  I normally use a jig and a tube.  And there's no mistaken them when they hit.   Even a few eyes mixed in every once in a while.

      Ditto. I switched to a 3 inch shell in #2 shot. I missed a few wood ducks this morning but got one teal. Not bad for the WMA I was hunting. 2 ducks would be great. 3-4 like you won the lottery. Saw plenty of action but it was fast moving wood ducks out of range. Geese never showed. And you can't shoot trumpeter swans! There were plenty of those. Let my boy sleep in this morning. Tomorrow we'll hit the more pressured lake. I saw at least one person setting up on it this morning on my drive to the WMA. The nice thing about that - when you're almost certain you'll be the only one there - is that you can roll in not long before shooting time if it doesn't take you long to set up.
