      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 .

well the reason im going over there, besides the fact that the lake i have been fishing has almost shut down walleye wise, is that i want to win something go figure. anyways i would like to have someone come join me, if no one does, i will probably hit HOL or big D or maybe Cormorant lake, cuz im sick if the small lake im on, i would like to hang out with some FM'ers and just hang. i sold my Ice house toinght (awesome, now looking for my clam 6800) so if anyone has any space in a house, or just someone to stand outside thier house, im here.

That place is nuts. My brother-in-law goes every year. There are way too many people there, but he has fun every time.

Remember to be there at 5 am to get one of the holes along the edge, boy those fellers are nuts.

nuts is right,

I used to do the three day Muskies Inc tourney up by Leech every year with a buddy and we had fun as well as some very close calls on some big fish, but every year I'd analyze how much money we dumped into winging 12# lures for three days, sleeping in a tent in the rain and I figuired for just a little bit more, I could be drilling the eyes, smalleys, and muskies in Canada instead. Needless to say I quit going.

Very Nice! I'm gonna have to wait till next year to upgrade. That is a heck of a deal. Right now i'm saving up for some addtions to my boat, gotta be ready for the May 10 opener. I would definatly go with to Brainerd, wow, what a prize list they've got. But I gotta work, I'd like to hear more of the one that is in Park Rapids area. I'll have to check on line and see. If you hear of it let me know, I may have to burn some vacation time. Later, the Perch

Just called Park rapids game and they will be selling tickets at the legion till 12:30 so i think i will be going to that one too, except you can only fish one line so i see. anyone thinking about this one, i think i will be going, if anyone wants to drive or would ride with me over there i think thats what im gonna do. I dont know if anyone is firmilliar with that area over there but if you get the chance there is an AWESOME diner in Adely about 20 miles away from park rapids that is unbelieaveable. -- not a plug just a suggestion

      Northwestern and central Minnesota have elevated fire danger due to sparse rain, high winds and lack of humidity. This means that open burning may be restricted in certain counties. The Department of Natural Resources urges Minnesotans to use caution while burning yard waste or leaf piles outdoors and to check the burning permit website for information.  “During fall, we know that residents and property owners will be taking care of leaf and brush piles,” said Casey McCoy, DNR wildfire prevention supervisor. “Piles can smolder undetected for several weeks under the right conditions. Windy, fall days can reignite these piles.” On average, Minnesota issues approximately 43,250 burn permits annually. When weather conditions warrant it, state fire team leaders may turn burning permits on or off. To determine whether burning is allowed, Minnesotans should regularly check their county burning restrictions. Residents may need to find alternatives to burning such as composting or hauling brush to a collection site or wait until it is safer to burn. “If you do decide to burn yard waste or leaf piles, do so when there is less wind,” said Linda Gormanson, burning permit coordinator. “Instead of burning your yard waste and potentially causing a wildfire, compost or chip your yard waste or bring it to a collection site.” Burning restrictions do not apply to campfires; they are still allowed. Clear an area around the campfire, watch it continuously and make sure it is out cold to the touch before leaving. Fire danger can change quickly. Check the Minnesota Incident Command System site https://goo.gl/W686km for fire behavior conditions. For questions about burning restrictions, check the DNR page at mndnr.gov/burnrestrictions or call your local Forestry office. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Lots of boats on the river daily here in LF now.  Select people are hitting good pods of fish and catching well.  Flows, though still Very swift, are slowing.  Fish are becoming a little more scattered, more fish are being caught away from shore and away from prominate structure. Minnows and tubes pulling most fish.  A few nice fish here and there most are falling in the 15-17 inch range. Good luck out there.

      Rivers are so under fished in this state.  People seem to gravitate towards lakes all the time and avoid rivers but the reality is that rivers, large and small, have awesome fishing.

      same results here lots of fish but had to sort through them for keepers. How bout them jumbo perch mixed in though wow.  I actually was catching quite a few smallmouth deeper as well. I had good luck with gulp alive pink shine 4" minnows too seem to catch bigger fish

      PSU, Lots of smaller walleyes mixed in with the keeper sized fish at most spots. A few spots do seem to have a larger percentage of keeper sized fish though. Looks very good for the next couple of years! Cliff

      Lot's of walleyes to be had, but most for me seem to be smaller (8-10 inches)
