      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 i am making my first walleye trip may 24 a monday so i dont have to deal with weekend traffic. i am new to the area but am ready to fish. I would like to take my boat to a nice lake where i can jig for some eyes and maybe pull some cranks on leadcore. I was wondering if anyone can point me in the right direction of a lake to fish. An hour drive is fine by me. these are the counties that i have maps of the lakes for, carver, hennepin, dakota, scott, mcleod, wright. any advice would be greatly appreciated. I was thinking of maybe trying spring lake in scott county. any word on the eyes there. thanks everyone and goodluck during the opener.

Sounds like P2, P3, or P4 of the Mighty Mississippi is the place you need to go............

If you want walleyes that are both quality and quantity, that is the place to go..............................................................................................................................................................................

Is it not safe to eat anyfish from the miss? Why do they not post some sort of toxic fish sign or something? Why does the dnr allow fishing on the Miss? Why am I not glowing in the dark from eating fish from the Miss yet? Maybe they are okay to eat.......

the people that think you can't or shouldn't eat fish from the mississippi should get the fish consumption booklet from the dnr and read it. they would be supprised to find that some of the lakes they fish are listed as one meal a month where as the mississippi down by redwing is listed as one meal a week.i've had a lot of people tell me they wouldn't eat a fish from the mississippi and when i ask them what lake they fish and look it up they are supprised when the lake they fish is worse then the mississippi.

Matix 10.. if your looking for an opener spot without the crowds .. the inner minneapolis lakes all can offer some decent fishing but are restricted to trolling motors(electric).

There are so many good walleye lakes within an hour of the cities .. I wouldnt know where to start. A wiser thing to do might be to check with various area bait shops after the opener and find out where people have been getting good results(current reports)...

You can take fish out of most any water safely. The things to pay attention to are that woman of child bearing years should not to fish too often and make sure you cut out the belly lining tissues. That tissue is what holds a lot of the pcb's and such. If you clean them well you should have no problems.

Yep those fish are very very bad for you! Stay away from the rivers, who knows what you can get from just touching the water BEWARE! Be afraid, BE VERY AFRAID! But if you see me down there don't worry, I will just be down there monitering things like Big G said!

Big-g and Rainman, What time are you guys serving the shore lunch on the river. I know we can't eat the fish from the river but i guess someone has become the taste testers.
lol

      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.

      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.

      Northwestern and central Minnesota have elevated fire danger due to sparse rain, high winds and lack of humidity. This means that open burning may be restricted in certain counties. The Department of Natural Resources urges Minnesotans to use caution while burning yard waste or leaf piles outdoors and to check the burning permit website for information.  “During fall, we know that residents and property owners will be taking care of leaf and brush piles,” said Casey McCoy, DNR wildfire prevention supervisor. “Piles can smolder undetected for several weeks under the right conditions. Windy, fall days can reignite these piles.” On average, Minnesota issues approximately 43,250 burn permits annually. When weather conditions warrant it, state fire team leaders may turn burning permits on or off. To determine whether burning is allowed, Minnesotans should regularly check their county burning restrictions. Residents may need to find alternatives to burning such as composting or hauling brush to a collection site or wait until it is safer to burn. “If you do decide to burn yard waste or leaf piles, do so when there is less wind,” said Linda Gormanson, burning permit coordinator. “Instead of burning your yard waste and potentially causing a wildfire, compost or chip your yard waste or bring it to a collection site.” Burning restrictions do not apply to campfires; they are still allowed. Clear an area around the campfire, watch it continuously and make sure it is out cold to the touch before leaving. Fire danger can change quickly. Check the Minnesota Incident Command System site https://goo.gl/W686km for fire behavior conditions. For questions about burning restrictions, check the DNR page at mndnr.gov/burnrestrictions or call your local Forestry office. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Lots of boats on the river daily here in LF now.  Select people are hitting good pods of fish and catching well.  Flows, though still Very swift, are slowing.  Fish are becoming a little more scattered, more fish are being caught away from shore and away from prominate structure. Minnows and tubes pulling most fish.  A few nice fish here and there most are falling in the 15-17 inch range. Good luck out there.

      Rivers are so under fished in this state.  People seem to gravitate towards lakes all the time and avoid rivers but the reality is that rivers, large and small, have awesome fishing.
