      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 .

Ok Rainy River forum addicts...I posted reports from up on the Rainy. Now here's the pictures. I fished with alot of great guys. Good fishermen, who caught some great big fish. Lots of great memories were made. Hope you enjoy...

P.J. Brennan with a 29 incher

Now this guy had a great couple of days. Lauren Dorweiler caught numerous walleyes larger than 26 inches...here's the highlights. The first picture is his new personal best, a 31 incher.

Here's Gary Gutenkauf with a fat 61 inch sturgeon, and some more sturgies they caught.

Can you believe this? Tony Hanson caught 37 sturgeon in about 5 hours! He caught the biggest ever in my boat...67 x 29! The gut was like a huge tube of sausage! According to DNR tables, it weighed 88 pounds. Here's Tony.....

Next comes Steve Holbrook with his new personal best "just a hair short of 30" walleye.

timsrainy2008021copy.jpg

And another big one!

timsrainy2008022copy.jpg

Steve caught big sturgeon too!

Steve's nephew Matt with his new PB walleye at 30 inches. Congrats Matt!

timsrainy2008023copy.jpg

Matt and I holding a big fat sturgie he caught on walleye tackle.

timsrainy2008024copy.jpg

Brad Engel with his new PB walleye at 31 inches! Brad caught this fish just a couple of hours after he caught his previous PB of 28 inches. If this fish doesn't look as big, keep in mind Brad is a giant of a man at 6 foot 5 inches.

timsrainy2008034copy.jpg

Brad's partner Jim with a big sturgeon.

timsrainy2008038copy.jpg

Longtime friend Jim VanDuyn with a big 30 incher. He and I doubled simultaneously, but mine was (only!) 27 inches. This was the culmination of a 176 fish day!

timsrainy2008041copy.jpg

Mark and Scott Gilbert with a couple of nice eyes...

timsrainy2008045copy.jpg

timsrainy2008044copy.jpg

And last of all, me, with my best of the trip walleye at just under 29 inches. Hope you didn't find this too redundant. I wanted to get everyone included. Good luck to everyone headed up to the Rainy.

Sorry about the pictures being different sizes. I must have done something goofy when I sized them. Will try to do better next time!

Tim, looks like you helped to put a lot of smiles on their faces, a testimate to your guiding. We anchored near you on the 4th when you where guiding Tony (I believe), and boy he didn't get to relax to long before catching another sturgeon. He must have been one tired fella after that day.

Thanks for the reports and good luck the rest of the year.

Awesome!!

I can't believe I'm taking this year off from heading up there. \:\(

Next year I think I'll have to head up earlier for the walleye bite though!

I love how healthy they all look this time of year. The white fins and bellies are awesome along with the golden skin.

      The crappie bite here has been very fussy, almost like ice fishing. So windy it's been tough to fish the way they seem to want it, most of the time.

      4 outfits out here right now.

      Fall fishing is so solid on Lake of the Woods right now. The fish may bite a different times everyday but they bite, and bite good, everyday. Had Pete Smith in the boat Thursday and it really couldn't have gone any better. Check it out, this weeks NCOR LOTW Fishing Report from Curt's NCOR Guide Service

      5.7% success in warm, breezy weather.  Hopefully that doubles for next weekend.  I think the weather will be a little cooler at least. I only heard 1 field report.  2 does and 2 fawns sighted. 1 in the morning and 3 in the evening.   I've heard area reports the deer are starting to move but not much for scrapes and such.  The leaves have been coming down and the woods opening up.  I've personally seen the deer start and stop using some areas as fall has set in.

      Hello, I'm from Chicago but I have a lot of family in Rochester. I come up for a week every few months and always do great fishing for Large mouth. I was hoping to find some spots to specifically target Pike that are within 30 mins of Rochester. I will be mainly shore fishing.  Thank you

      Got up to Bowstring again at Geigers Trails End Resort. Went up to get some crappies nd found them but again could not get one to bite out deep.  One spot they were 7 feet thick ! LOL   So we chased perch and did great. No 12 inchers but a lot of dandies. Not sure if I will get back up before ice.  Crappies should be great this winter.

      Where's the best place to get bait at Vermillion?? Is Hoodoo the best access to fish big bay? The girlfriend and I are going to come up for a day trip tomorrow...Thanks for any help.
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      I believe that there is a campsite or picnic area in the bay just South of the S-Curve  located adjacent to the WMA, I believe that Green Herons and Blue Herons nest in the trees there! Cliff

      Hope everyone had a great summer season of fishing and otherwise, and here's to hoping the fall season is going well.  I'm planning to get some grouse hunting in while up in a couple weeks and noticed Pine Island has a WMA on it.  Figured if I had time, I can take a quick ride out to there and have fun walking around on an island WMA.  Does anyone have any input on difficulty of beaching a boat somewhere along the shoreline on the north or south side, if even possible?   Thanks for the help and advice this year from everyone I talked to on here.  Looking like I may miss out on hard water this year and will have to put cracking that nut off until next year.
