      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 .

Report for 2/7 - 2/8

We went out of the South end, bite was good for walleyes. No glimpse of a crappie yet for me. 3 guys caught approx. 25 eyes on Thursday before dark, ate our limit. Caught another 5 keepers throughout the night into Friday morning getting our final one at 6 am. Fish seemed scared of jigging, so all eyes were caught on dead sticks and rattle reels with fat heads and plain colored hooks. Two day total for walleyes was 42, with 3 decent perch being caught, realesed 2 small northerns.

not to stir the pot or anything but I thought anyone was not allowed to keep more than 2 upper red lake walleyes per person after you eat 2 walleyes then keep more afterwards? I'm confused now.

I really hate when people start jumping to conclusions on all of these forums saying "you took more than the limit, or i thought they had to be this long to keep" we all need to just relax and enjoy fishing. We all know the rules and abide by them, get off each others backs.

That is correct, the date changes at midnight. We caught our next limit between 1 am and 7 am the next day. So we were totally legal!

My wifes uncles got up there last night, hope the weather doesn't hurt his bite. I am heading back Tues-Wends. for another quick trip, hopefully better crappie reports.

"Not to stir the pot or anything"? What were you trying to do then? Are you unsure of the regulations? If so, pick up the regulations book and read it instead of trying to mimic a CO.

just a reminder if you have your limit and you eat them you have to keep the remains of the fish till the next day.so if you catch another limit at 1 am.and you still got the remains of the other fish in the house you r illegal.

As simple as the regs may be to some, there is obviously still confusion (Look back at all the posts). Thats the beauty of the forum, so everyone can get on the same page regarding regs. If someone has questions I can't think of a better spot to ask them than FM.

To clarify for everyone, we went to the resort and ate Thursday's walleyes and disposed of carcasses. We got back to fish house later that evening and set all rattle reels after midnight and caught Friday's limit to take home. I did not feel offended Quackaddict, but I hope this clarifies what we did was legal. Thanks

Yeah most rentals should have updates posted in their shacks of the possesion limit=daily limit change. It went into effect the 12th of January. We were up there the 9th thru the 13th. So we got that last window. We had 1 meal and just to avoid legal issues we got the carcasses off the lake before the 12th. We did have a discussion or two on the legalities over the course of that weekend... You definately have to do some homework before heading up.

I know the daily limit is 2, but is the possession limit 2 or 4?

In modern day regs.... Minnesota's possession limit on all species has always been the same as it's daily limit with the exception of perch...

Good Luck!

A few years a go on another Red Lake forum some poor guy was harrased for days about a northern he caught out-of season and failed to mention he released. Two days of being told he was a poacher. If I ever make it to Red this year and actually get to post my report I will just mention how many I caught and leave out the how many I ate. That is, if I even catch any!

I went out of hillmans on thursday and was all alone, fished from 11am till 700pm and got 10 eyes biggest 19 and 1 14inch crappie. most fish came from jigging even the crappie they were pretty aggressive, I had the 19 on twice. after it got dark the bite just died not much in middle of day either ended up with 2 14 inch keepers to take home though

I was using a green buckshot rattle spoon the smallest size with a minnowhead and a set line with a glow blue and fathead. they were just starting to plow more roads out there. I brought my sled and moved a couple times with my portable, I didnt feel like getting stuck all by myself with the truck. I was out about 8 miles too, there are not near as many houses as last year I dont think.

We just got back from URL and between 12 guys in 3 days we caught 10 walleyes 2 being over 17 so released them, 2 crappies, and 6 perch. We went out of Rogers, this was our first time up and were kinda disappointed. The sleepers were comfortable, but I just felt like we fished pretty hard for what we got, dont know if I would do it again! didn't even average 1 eye per guy over 3 days "not good"! Was it this slow all over or did we just get stuck in a bad spot, our houses were not in a group, kinda in the middle of nowhere.

My buddy and I fished Saturday from 11am until about 7pm. We caught 20 walleyes, 2 crappie, and 5 jumbo perch. Most of the fish we caught hit the rattlin varmit with a few hitting the deadstick.

We made it to URL at 11:30 Friday night and had a throw back walleye and a 15" crappies in 10 minutes and thought here we go. Boy were we wrong. The rattle reels didn't go down until 9:30 the next morning. And the rattle reel going down was once in a blue moon the rest of the weekend. We ended up with 3 keep eyes, 2 perch, and the one crappie.

We had the camera down on Saturday and watched eye after eye race into the buckshot and all they would do is nudge it and swim away. We used every bait and every possible minnow presentation and the eyes wanted nothing to do with it. Very frustrating

We finally gave up on the fishing at 9:00pm Saturday and went for some BBQ and beer at Hillmans and played Wii bowling for an hour or 2 to vent our frustration.

Props to Hillmans BBQ and atmosphere!!! The highlight of the weekend was the Wii and the guitar pickers!

      I've gotten a lot of eyes this year, this being my best. Several in the 24" range and a LOT of eaters. A buddy and I took my mom out fishing and we got our limit of eater eyes in about an hour and a half. Good times!
    • Daniel Anderson
      Nice! That looks like a good time.

      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    
    • jj56342
       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
    • proguide
      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.
