      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 .

Any reports from Lake Bronson?

I moved my sleeper house to Lake Bronson last Friday, but didn't get a chance to fish. I'm gonna go up tomorrow(Sat 02/02)afternoon and spend the night. The Lake Bronson Lions Fishing Derby is on Sunday(02/03), this way I don't have to drive up there in the morning! "Less chance of hitting a deer"! Ya know....

I don't know if the fish bite at night on Lake Bronson, I guess I really don't care, I'm really just looking forward to fishing on Sunday. This will be the 3rd time fishing this Derby/Tournament and have had fun each time up. The 1st time I caught fish and won some money. Last year wasn't as good (it was cold though)...

If anyone has any reports, feel free to post...If your gonna be up fishing the Tournament, good luck...

My house is white with a Big Cartoon fish and worm on each side, and right now is set up by the cemetery point, feel free to stop by and say hi...If I'm there you'll see my Black Dodge Durango outside.

Talk to ya'll later.

Well, I didn't win... Oh well, at least the weather was nice!

Another good turn out, with a few fish weighed, but nothing really big, I heard it was tough for most (me included), and others did o.k.

During the tournament I only caught one small Northern, and lost a good fish that was on for a short battle before getting off!!! Grrr, there's always one that got away, right? That's it, nothing else all day. Moved once and was marking fish suspended the entire time, but couldn't get 'em to bite?

I did however catch a couple Pike Saturday night. One was caught at about 10:30pm (4lbs maybe) and another smaller Pike was caught at about 1:30am! Both were caught on the Rattle Wheel set about 10ft off the bottom. So that was fun anyways...I might have done better if I'd have taken a run and gun approach, but what can I say, I was being kinda lazy...

That's my report, sorry it's not "better", but that's what I got for ya'll. Talk to ya later.

CSP were you the one that stopped by my Ice House on Saturday Night? Whoever it was it was nice meeting you, sorry but I'm horrible at remembering names!

Are there still nice crappies in that lake? Before they drained it I remember catching nice crappies out there. Also have most of the bucks lost there antlers yet? Some I have heard are still hanging on to them.

I've only fished bronson twice, once ice fishing and once open water. I love that lake. I fished it with my fiance and her dad who passed away about a year and a half ago. He had a house with a couple other guys. It was the only time i got to fish with him. I would like to fish it more when we go up to see her mom but time doesnt always allow for it. Is there a good walleye population in the lake? Jim and i caught some northerns but no walleyes that day. I guess i was just curious if a guy can find em in there or if it is more a northern or panfish lake?

      Also check for water in the fuel filter. At higher rpms water droplets travel to carbs and causes poor combustion. Happened to me some years ago. Had to drain water out of tank.

      Skunked, It was nice meeting you.  I've seen you,  your wife and little one a few times, but you never waved-thought you might be mad at me after we had a little debate on netting.  Sounds like were good!  Stop by if you see me on the dock.  That was my wife and sister in-law assembling the bench. That pinch area on the river is tight and some folks tend to fly right thru.  Also, people fishing on that dock in the pinch down area in the spring, don't like to reel in their bobber when you try to navigate through the boats in the spring.  I used the fish the St Louis River a lot and fellow fisherman were terrible flying by you.  I too follow the no-wake policy when going through tight areas.

      Yep, done for the year.  Not much for heat or insulation in the cabin.  It's a real, honest to goodness cabin.   So, as of Thursday, adios.  Until next year, etc.
    • CigarGuy
      Del, are you done up here for the year?  Missing the best part of the year!  If you see me on the dock or out on the lake..say hi!  I wouldn't just drop in and introduce myself either-not my style.  Don't have to worry too much about anybody climbing the mountain to do that

      About 69 this morning.... And this concludes my reporting until sometime in 2018, Lord willing. But I will still be watching....
    • delcecchi
      I will add that it is nothing like the old days when throwing a marker was practically life threatening..... But that is west end.   If it wasn't for the musky  guys there would only be like three of us...

      Told my wife I wanted to watch hooker....  she said " you aren't watching any hookers while I'm around"   rim shot.

      The public access on Grand Lake in Stearns County will be temporarily closed Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. for hand removal of starry stonewort. This temporary closure is necessary for the safety of workers and divers.  A relatively light population of the invasive algae was recently confirmed around the Grand Lake public access, following a coordinated starry stonewort search involving 200 trained detectors in 20 counties. DNR invasive species specialists will hand-pull starry stonewort while preserving native aquatic plants. Starry stonewort has never been eradicated from any lake in the United States, but treatment can ease access and recreational use of a lake, while helping to reduce the risk of infestation to other water bodies. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Skunked.  Reruns on late nite so watch Hooker for laughs. Never saw it much in 1983. Shatter is Kirk as Hooker. To fun. He an his three self trained rookies are the answer to everything  the only squad with action an Hooker solves every case by end of show ending with a real dramatic line an stop action shot  acting is really bad but fun. City neeeds Hooker an he an crew kick it into high gear. Real 80's corn. Locklear n James Darren an Adrain Zmed prove trying to act is not hard but acting is. Total fun an totally predictable. Best lure I been use in is a simple black buck tail an a huge ol red n white spoon. Wallys like my raps dragged on a 2oz bottom bouncer an pike for some reason been eating my worms on a floaty. Smaller are a hoot an my Hounds love the action. Speaking of action. I have never seen a show with as much running in it as TJ Hooker. Ol Capt. Kirk is always on the go. "You call it in. I'll get'nm". "I want him bad. Ya hear. BAD".   :  ). I sure miss my pup Moe Rock. Bummer so this is a treat. Keep on rocken!  Fish on. T
