      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 .

Hi everyone I was just curious of what depths people are fishig walleyes in and if crappies are bitting and what depths they are in. We fish it a ton in the summer and do really good on walleyes and sunfish but this is the first time I am bringing up the ice castle perm to try it for a friday and saturday night. Im not looking for spots because we have some of are favorite late fall spots on our gps but I just want to no some depths. When i arrive back I will let a line about how the fishin was thanks for all your comments ahead of time! Minnetonkaman

Hi Minnetonka, the fishing on North Long has been a little hit or miss this winter. For the walleyes I would concentrate on fishing 18-28 feet with shiners. Shiners have been the ticket over the last 2-3 weeks. I have heard much lately on crappies from N. Long, maybe someone else here has some crappie info. Good luck!

No crappies for me but I have been doing OK on the walleye in 26-27ft. I have been using fatheads. Somedays they seem to like the set-line better than the jig. Glow green demon or plain red hook have seemed to work equally well. I have been using a glow red jigging spoon for a jig. Sometimes they look at the jig, then I give my set-line a little tug and wham! The fish I have been catching are not the biggest, lots of 10-12 inchers but they are fun. Prime time is running just before 5PM until just befor 6PM. I did catch some fish earlier in the day out a little deeper, 37ft. Maybe a guy could do well all day starting deep and moving shallower as the evening goes.

Thanks for the replies but I forgot to ask if there is any plowed roads or if you can drive any where close to breaks . I have a 4 wheel drive chevy crew cab that I pull my fishhouse out with. If SB or late night knows it would be greatly appreciated.

All of our lakes are in great shape. You should be able to drive where you want to, we hardly have any snow on the lakes. Just watch for heaves, there haven't been many this year but you never know.

      Second the guide.  Fishing a lake in the north is totally different from fishing Mississippi or lake Zumbro or other lakes in the southern half of the state.  Otherwise you should look at the best place to launch your boat to be close to good fishing.  Rainy is a very big lake.. Ask in http://fishingminnesota.com/forums/forum/98-rainy-lake-fishing-reports-hunting-events/ the rainy lake forum.

      Unless they find a way to stop all the kinds of waterfowl from swimming, diving, eating and pooping from lake to lake. It's never going away.

      I saw this on the Wright County website today: http://www.wrightswcd.org/Water_Mana...e_species.html
      There's a link in Blue on the home page.


      Sounds like they are having a meeting about it on AUG 23. From talking to the DNR, I believe they didn't allow the initial dates for this to happen. Mostly because there was really no comment period on it. Sounds like they are gonna have it now. Guess if your against it, now's your chance to speak up. You can also send in written comments. Not sure exactly to who, at least I didn't see that part clearly. Maybe to Alicia O'Hare.


      Like others have said, I believe their ultimate goal is to have this implemented county wide at some point. When you look at the committee info, most groups are lake associations. Hopefully it still can be stopped. Here is the DNR person I called on this, she was helpful: Heidi Wolf - 651-259-5152

      Anyone else have new info on this?

      I resisted converting to braided lines. I liked my TrileneXL. Then, one day about four years ago I decided to spool up with fireline and at first I didn't think I could really feel much difference. Skeptical me, I always held on to that spool loaded with my trusty Trilene. One day I decided to put that mono back on and immediately could feel the difference. It felt like I was fishing with a rubber band. I went back to braided and haven't looked back.

      Last night a flock of geese buzzed the house and Finn went nuts! I think he wants to get out hunting as much as I do.

      Nice video Curt.  Looks like you are having way too much fun out there. Enjoy the time on the water.

      I will probably go out to my parents farm and set up in a pasture. The cattle have it mowed down pretty good. The geese seem tp pile in there pretty good. I won't hit it to hard, just get out a few times and hopefully get my son to get his first goose...
