      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 .

It seems like a fished a millions hours today and couldn't find any fish. Started off fishing for walleyes this morning at 6am. Moved out a little deeper for crappies. Ended up moving 9 times throughout the day. Fished up by the the high lines fished south of the shanty town and all over inbetween anywhere from 20 to 40 feet. I figured the fish wouldnt be biting too good with the cold but I couldnt even find a school of them to start throwing lures at. Moved in shallower before dark and fished till 7pm. In all that time I ended up catchin a 15 inch sauger, 3 walleyes(all under 10 inches), a sturgeon, and only one crappie. Has it been this dead for everyone else??????

UWLeagle, you know what, it's been pretty slow since the day we had that fish fry on the ice!? Maybe the fish found out the sort of stuff we were up to and decided they didn't want to have any part of it? As you might have figured, I never made it out today. I traded fishing today for a go at it tomorrow... Work held me up and as you probably noticed, I'm a bit of a wuss when it comes to the cold. Hopefully the fish cooperate tomorrow and Friday.

Maybe we need to have another fish fry out there, it could have been good luck. I wish I could help you and tell you where to find some fish. I could give you a list of places where the fish arent though. It was cold out but there wasnt any wind so it didnt seem to bad. Wont be able to make it out tomorow but I think I can make it out Friday and Satruday and Sunday for sure.

How do you guys live so good. Fishing several times a week, must be nice!! Some of us have a chain that just won't seem to let go. Anyways maybe UW is right, time for another fish fry!! Problem is it sounds like we don't have any fish. Anyways hopefully tomorrow with this heat wave moving in sparks something down there. If nothing else it should be a decent day, (weather wise) to have a couple cold ones and wet a line. See you guys tomorrow.

I hope that post did not seem like i was complaining. I would rather fish all day long and not catch a thing than work or sit on the couch all day, so yes it was a good day. Was just stating the fishing was a little tough. And yes it is nice that I get to 3 or 4 times a week. My temporary job allows me to do this, don't know what I am going to do when I find a real job. Jason, couple of cold ones sounds good, haven't had a beer out their yet, maybe that'll be good luck along with a fish fry(if anyone has fish), worth a try.

Auggie- Yeah i let you catch all the mudpuppies last night. Thanks for taking that pic, I'll be out tomorow morning, same place or maybe a little bit south where that other guy was set up.

I was out there too yesterday... got set up by 7, outside of Bayport. Not much action, missed five hits and landed one crappie. Another guy landed a nice 18" sauger. That was pretty much it.

Move around to a few other spots on that side - didn't even mark a fish on the flasher. Before I headed in (around 2ish), I tried over in the WI-side shanty town. Had something come up and tap my jigging rap a few times but couldn't get a hookset. Threw just about everything in my tackle box down there but couldn't buy a solid bite. I tried swedish pimples, jigging spoons, leadhead jigs, diamond jigs, bare hooks... nothing.

I might give it a try again tomorrow - I'm a glutten for punishment!

I think I'll hit the other spot so just we are spread out a bit and not fighting for the same fish. See which one is better. I'll come over and talk to ya after awhile. I agree the morning cant come fast enough. Good luck!

Croixeyes- wish I would have posted that here to save a few bucks. I gotta start doin a little research before I just get all exicited and buy something right away. Thanks anyways though. Glad to hear the books are good though, cant wait to get them.

      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

       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.

      get a guide for a day
