      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 .

I sent you an email. Sounds interested. I don't know that I'll be able to make every week, but it would be fun. Plus, I'm not much good at Bass yet so maybe this will help.

It's a good time. You definitely don't have to go to every event. I made it to about 4 or 5 last year and I'm looking forward to doing it again this year.

I'm usually alone so if anyone wants to take me in their fancy new boat a time or two and show me all their secret spots or I could maybe take someone along in my old hunk of floating aluminum and try to be lucky... \:\)

So you just measure the bass and then release them where they were caught? If so, that is GREAT. Puts less stress on the fish than to have a weigh in and release all the fish in the same spot. I wish they would do the same thing on Rush Lake instead of having a weigh in every week. Great idea.

You hit the nail on the head. Catch, measure, release.

Rob and I will be there for sure this year. We should be able to hit most all of them, Tuesdays were our normal fishing night each week last summer. And of course, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays, and the occasional Monday too. I can't wait to fish against the DD.

Does the champ get dollars signed by all the members like some of the get togethers do?

Matty, maybe we need to hook up and partner this year. Like I said before though, I am still waiting to see what the kids ball schedule is and so forth. I am thinking Golf can wait for when there isn't time to fish! If your interested, stay in touch and maybe we can tag team and take on the double D and his partner.

He kind of looks like someone just punched him in the stomach and shoved a catfish in his hands. He'll never get that scent off him, and bass stay away from cats. Could be a tough year for old Dittrich.

Sounds like a perfect league on some great local lakes. Unfortunately I'm in the same spot that Tun is in. Coaching kids ball w/games every Tuesday. Done by the 4th of July though. Maybe I can hit the latter events.

Have fun out there...

Fun will be had, no one has to worry about that.

As for the guys that are alone, you don't need a partner to fish these events. There were several guys who fished solo last year. If you can find a partner, all the better, but don't sweat it if you can't.

Dan is right, I joined solo last year. I ended up fishing with Ole Matty about every other week. On the off weeks, I fished with some others. It was fun as I learned a lot from many and hopefully helped a few. I will be out again this season with an empty seat if anyone wants to join me. Just let me know.

      Can anyone report on fishing on Rainy River this week?
    • Tony S
      Headed up this weekend for the first trip of the fall.  Thinking about fishing the lake with all the good reports from there, but has anybody been up to Clementson, Frontier or Birchdale  areas recently that could give a report?  Thanks.
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      VG, Good bite most days now! All minnows for me. jigs or lindys. Chubs, shiners, and pike suckers. Found walleyes from 8' to 40' yesterday. Cliff
    • MinnowBuckets
      Thanks for chiming in and sharing how the river has been treating you lately. They sure are fun to catch. I am hoping to get out again this weekend for some more smallie action. Hopefully they are still near where I was able to find them last weekend....

      I fish pretty much exclusively above the Sartell dam.  I normally try to hit it 2-3 times per week.  Over the last 3 weeks, I thought the fishing was down right ridiculous(even with the crazy high water) at times, 12-20 fish in a hour or two before sunset.  I found them right up on the bank, and of course in slower moving water.  There are a few spots north of the dam that are great places for high water.  Some larger areas where the water can swirl around and create backwash.  In fact, I'll point my boat down right and put spot lock on, because the water is flowing back up river, and just cast parallel with the bank.  Most of the time I'll throw a Scatter rap, then when I see a fish chasing bait, I'll throw out a wacky rig.   I went out last weekend to a spot I've been hitting, and the fish have diminished big time.  Caught 6 in a couple hours.  Then I went out last night, and caught one walleye.   So, with that in mind I figured they had to of gone to the deeper rock piles.  And, sure enough, I caught 2 just before sunset, then I headed in.   If you have SI, just drive down or up river and look for large groups of rock piles.  Go up river from them, and try and do a controlled drift over the rocks.  I normally use a jig and a tube.  And there's no mistaken them when they hit.   Even a few eyes mixed in every once in a while.

      Headed up for one last weekend of open water fishing.  Anyone been out this week, how’s the bite?

      Ditto. I switched to a 3 inch shell in #2 shot. I missed a few wood ducks this morning but got one teal. Not bad for the WMA I was hunting. 2 ducks would be great. 3-4 like you won the lottery. Saw plenty of action but it was fast moving wood ducks out of range. Geese never showed. And you can't shoot trumpeter swans! There were plenty of those. Let my boy sleep in this morning. Tomorrow we'll hit the more pressured lake. I saw at least one person setting up on it this morning on my drive to the WMA. The nice thing about that - when you're almost certain you'll be the only one there - is that you can roll in not long before shooting time if it doesn't take you long to set up.
