      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 .

Fished Tofte Monday after the bash and caught a couple streamers. When cleaning them, one had a belly full eggs, some bigger red ones and some smaller orange ones. Can someone shed a little lite on this for me?

Could be two batches of eggs at different stages of development.

Well, I don't know if that's it. Just an idea.

If i had to guess, sounds to me like someone was chumming with spawn.

angler, that's a good thought. Hookset mentioned they were in the belly, and I didn't assume that meant the stomach, but it could have meant that. If they were in the stomach, they were of course eaten.

i would think that the smaller orange ones were just immature, or at an earlier stage in development. Ever clean a hen steelhead in the fall? Opaque orange all over. Very early run brownies too. Granted, steelhead always do have very orange eggs. I've never seen brookie eggs, but some cohos seem to have a redder tinted egg when more mature.

If they were in the skien, the fish didn't spawn last fall and was absorbing those eggs.

Do splake, as hybrids of laker and brookie, even form eggs? Dunno.

Rainbows form eggs even when they are stocked in a fishery that doesn't offer spawning sites, as far as I know. I've found eggs in rainbows in Miners and a couple other streamer lakes.

Splake form eggs, they are just less fertile than brookies or lakers (from the Fishes of Wisconsin book by George Becker).

Thanks for the insight. Sorry i didn't get back on till now but i found it hard to leave the ice . Yes - the eggs were in the stomach- the red ones were about the size of garden peas- the orange were smaller,closer to steelhead eggs. Thanks again-now to save some $ to get back to ([PoorWordUsage]) - Burntside or Grand Marias.

      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.
