      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 .

Help please, I started fishing again after 15 years with my two daughters last May. I always had my dad when I was younger to do it all for me but now he isn't around. My daughters are bugging me to go again and I am ready but I need advise about where to fish, when to fish, and everything else to get more then just the bass and sunny's. We did alot at the end of summer last year in the Brainerd area and just loved it. We can't wait to get started in the metro or up north just need some help.

Might be money well spent to take a guide, there are plenty on here, they can provide you with everything you possibably need to go fishing for the day, this atleast will get you "feet wet" again , they'l help teach you some where the fish are and probably a couple different ways to fish for them, plus they can make it fun, fishing IMO isn't always fun, it's always challenging, and sometimes boring. Personally I think time on the water is the best thing you can do for fishing, and fishing with someone who knows what they are doing can pay big dividends to the ready to learn. I can't personally reccomend one guide around here, but I assure you those I've around here on Fishingminnesota are Top notch . Also if you look around I know there are plenty of city and county sponsered events, I know Ron Schara (Minnesota Bound host) is running a starter fishing with kids event, through some gander mountain stores, I believe for no cost, but you might have to sign up. Try calling you local city hall, read the local papers for events, talk to some local fish shops, they can lead you to me specfic events.

C11K4, Maybe you should post what part of the metro area that you live. There are lots of guys that head out that probably would enjoy the company. My sons and I fish Tonka and the west metro as much as we can. Mostly shore fishing, since we only have a canoe and small 12 footer. And welcome to the fishingminnesota site. You'll meet a lot of strange but nice people here.

As a fellow female I welcome you to come join us at Lake Waconia! Just the other day we went out and couldn't catch the fish fast enough! As soon as our line hit the water we had a bite! I bet we caught 50 crappies/bass within an hour! It was so fun! I'm sure your girls would love it! Come on out! smile.gif

Hi cora11kasia4 !

You might want to check on the DNR web site under Metro fishing. They have many shore and dock fishing areas.

http://www.dnr.state.mn.us

Click on the county you would like to fish in and it will give you all the info on that location.

Thanks for all your replys. I will for sure take some of the offers up. As for where in the Metro I live that would be in Lino Lakes but I fished at Minnetonka alot last year and really injoyed that. I do plan on going to the Alexandria area this summer. I do not have a boat I have been doing just shore fishing.

Hi there Welcome to one of the best forums around. I would check out the Chisago area lakes for some shorefishing areas for close to home spots. I am more of a panfisher than anything else just ask the guys here. I might be able to take you and your girls this summer if you would like. I fish Tonka all the time so just post a message and I will get ahold of you. I am off on Monday's so if that works for you during the summer let me know luv to take ya'll fishing.

PS hey fellow FMer's haven't heard of any get together yet. I am going home to Ind the 5-7 to 5-16 is there any chance after that to have a get together luv to go fishing with ya'll aagain

Living in Lino Lakes, there are closer spots to you than the Chisago area, especially if you're looking to fish from shore.
Golden Lake in Circle Pines has some good fishing, not to mention both Centerville and Peltier in Centerville.
If you're looking for some more, head up Lexington Ave. to Coon & Linwood Lakes.
Or, if it's a Saturday afternoon and you've got an hour or two to kill, in early JUne, check out Loch Ness in Blaine (also just off Lexingon, to the north of Wal-Mart *& Cub) It's a DNR kids fishing pond, full of decent sized Crappies.
Good Luck

Thomas is right. They are getting panfish on the north end of West Rush. Very easy to fish from shore there. Also if you see me out there feel free to flag me down. Can always use a few more fishing buddies grin.gif

      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.

      That's what I planned on doing while I bow hunted but wasn't sure since I got one in spring if I could get another. Thanks

      I was marking various things, but I didn't note a correlation between marking something and catching the walleye.  Also was catching smallies on the same reefs, although maybe at a little different depth.   In fact I was surprised when the walleye hit.  Likewise the other one the next evening.

      Eden prairie purgatory lake is full of carp. You can see them from the dock or the bridge.

          Orvis has some awesome tutorials on their web sites. They teach at whatever level you are in flyfishing. I've gone there many times. They've also got an awesome app with fishing reports including wwater conditions, fly selection and hw to fish it.       Check them out and good fishing.

      I didn't fish any walleye this weekend- only bass. I would fish Friday and Saturday mornings from 530-830 and caught half a dozen largies in the 3-4lb range on a spinner bait. I just got my Garmin fish finder with sideview which will hopefully help me better locate the walleyes. Del, were you marking fish as you'd go over them?

      Latest Landing gossip...... First hearing in trial was july 25th.   Judge took motions under advisement. In the mean time, since none of the locals would work there, they imported a bunch of people on H2b visas as seasonal workers and put them up in a little house in Cook.  Charging them $285 per month.  Like 20 people in the house.   Now many have quit and found other jobs, and some also found other places to live.   They have to hang on since they need to wait until their scheduled airplane tickets.. which they also had to pay for.   That's the news from the Laundromat.... Believe it or so what.

      Neighbor guy got a couple slot fish on west wakemup with leadcore.   I got a couple, one 19.95 and other 22, rigging crawler also on west wakemup although a different area.  Mine were in like 18 feet.
