      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 .

To those that are catching them, are you using flashers or just a fly and dead sticking it? I always had better luck running flashers with a dropper but lately it isn't working. Maybe just a bit early. Hopefully I'll find a bunch on Sunday if all works out. Will be wrestling in Fargo on Saturday.

I ahven't had much luck with the flasher setup yet on area lakes. I've seen one caught on a chubby darter, and other on crappie minnows from a deadstick. I'll stick to my flasher rig; the action should be picking up real soon. I just haven't marked a ton of fish yet....

That's what I remembered the last time I kept a few too..I checked them all thoroughly and didn't find any worms at all...If I would have, they certainly would have gone in the trash..Just pulled them out of the smoker..Good eats...They were bigger than the ones I have caught out there before too..

Was out on Wed. morning and 3 of us caught 57 tullies, the bite is on! Fishing in 65 fow and caught them using flasher rigs with an 18" leader anywhere from 20' to 45' down, thank god for the vexilar. Jigged aggresively to get them to show up then had to let the rod be still for them to bite. Hope to get back out Sat morning.

Could be, there was 9 other people fishing out there in the same area. The others didnt have near as good of luck as we did though. We ended up giving quite a few to a couple guys out there that were watching us reel em in one after another while their lines were dead, felt kinda bad for them. They were pretty much non stop jiggin though so I really think that leaving the rod sit still when they showed up on the vexilar was the key. A dead stick line would deffinately not be a bad idea, but hard to tell what the best depth would be for that since they were running in a 25 foot column. Good luck Sat.

We fished from 7 to 10 and they were biting pretty consistantly the whole time. The only reason we left at 10 was cause my buddy had to get to work, they were still going crazy. Seemed like every couple minutes one of us bringing up a fish, probably could've caught almost 75 if we wouldn't have missed so many fish, deffinately some timmid biters in the bunch. Oh well, it was a blast anyway! I'll look for your truck Grand Dad, not sure what I'll be in as we haven't decided who is gonna drive yet. Now the guys are talking about goin after some trout Sat. morning so who knows, I'd like o get back out and catch some more tulibee myself.

Anyone been out to Sybil to catch those big hogs.

I only make it over there once every couple years, but it's worth it to only catch a couple when they're so big.

Don't need a fishing report, just wondering how the access and ice/snow is.

Thanks~

      I figured I would start up a new thread for us to use for the winter now that things are starting to set up and guys may be starting to creep out on the bays and smaller water.   I did some more poking around on Pike Bay this morning and I don't have anything much new to report. We've got less than an inch of fluffy snow on the ice and things healed up after the warm front this week. I worked my way from shore out into the middle of the bay and ice was relatively uniform between 5.25 and 5.5 inches of nice clear ice. Earlier this week I checked all landings on the Tower end and everything was iced up except for open water way out in Big Bay appearing to mostly be all West of Birch/Ely islands. Not sure if all the recent strong winds from North and South have changed that status though. I'm still sticking with my original guess of December 2 for my first trip off McKinley on 5 inches.   Good luck this winter to all and Be Safe!

      extended forecasts look good up north. We won't have fish-able ice in the metro until at least the 2nd weed in December assuming no dramatic temp changes. The big Expo is Dec1-3 but temps look promising ~1.5hrs north. I wonder if the ability to go fishing might impact the amount of traffic at the show!

      There's preliminary testing then if flagged it gets shipped to a lab I believe in CO to verify the results.

      10 day forecast doesn't show anything with low temps below 15 degrees.  It might make ice but it wont be making it necessarily fast.

      Thanksgiving would be nice...but first week of December still works!   Rogers on Red is already allowing wheelers and sleds...no side by sides yet.

      A 30-foot-tall white spruce, selected as the state’s official Christmas tree, was cut down today in the General C.C. Andrews State Forest, near Willow River.  The tree will be set up at the governor’s residence, 1006 Summit Ave., St. Paul, around 9 a.m., Monday, Nov. 20. The tree will be lit Monday, Nov. 27. DNR staff and the Conservation Corps of Minnesota cut the tree on the Friday before Thanksgiving each year from one of 59 state forests. However, the search for just the right tree begins months before. DNR foresters keep an eye out for a tall tree that’s nicely shaped and well filled out. It also needs to be in a location where it will not be damaged when dropped and then easily pulled out and loaded onto a trailer. Minnesota’s state forests provide clean air and water, recreational opportunities, wildlife habitat, timber and special forest products. This year, small businesses are making 150,000 wreaths with balsam boughs harvested from state forest lands. The estimated annual sales for Minnesota companies producing holiday wreaths exceed $23 million and Minnesota’s public lands support a large share of this economic activity. Each holiday season, half a million Christmas trees are harvested from private tree farms in Minnesota, contributing about $30 million to the state’s economy. For each tree harvested, one to three trees are planted. Real Christmas trees store carbon during their lifespan. They can be chipped for mulch when the season is over, making them an environmentally friendly choice.
      More information and details on viewing the tree is on the state Christmas tree page. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
