      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 .

If you are looking for downtown/metro areas here are a few:

Minnehaha Fall Park (Pool 2 below Ford Dam)
Hidden Falls (Pool 2 below Ford Dam on St. Paul side)
Lilydale Regional Park
Fort Snelling Park (Pike's Island)
Coon Rapids Dam (Anoka area)
Stone Arch Bridge (downtown mpls - both shores)
Nicolet Island (downtown mpls)
Boom Island Park (downtown mpls)
U of MN campus (both sides along the 'sippi)
I-94 & 694 (west side of town - north mpls/Fridley area)

That should give you some spots to check out. I've tried all but a couple and they can all be very productive for multi species.

I'd also add Menomin Park near Fridley and Isles of Peace Park off east river road.

Pool 2 Hidden Falls Park and on the opposite side of the river is Minnehaha park (Where Minnehaha dumps in)Decent to great shore fishing (if ya don't mind sheepies and carp to)

Coming from the north..
Take 94 to Hiawatha. Take left on 46th and go over the bridge (AKA Ford Dam) take first right then left and follow to the park for the Ford side. Big sign can't miss it.

If you want Minnehaha side go past 46th and the park is on the left. It's big (lots of shoreline open to the public)Turn in and take a left - go up a bit until you see a path that goes down. (hard to describe) Park and walk down the path to the never ending stairs and follow that down and follow the path and Minnehaha out to the river. Again, miles of shoreline to cover and both sides are good. Just remember that you have to walk back up them stairs. wink.gif

Hope that helps.

Roughfisher, is there decent fishing from Isles of Peace? I've walked around the area but never tried fishing the area.

Lost - Isles of Peace isn't the greatest, but you can set up and fish the Thalweg (main channel) of the river. You'll get a mixed bag, every day is different, but I've caught big Freshwater Drum, Carp, Walleye, Sauger, Smallmouth Bass, White Bass, Bowfin, White Sucker, Shorthead Redhorse, Golden Redhorse, Channel Catfish, Black Bullheads, Rock Bass, Green Sunfish, Northern Pike, and Smallmouth Bass there. I'd rather be at a place with a current break and some structure of some kind, but beggars can't be choosers.

Thanks for the information. We'll need to get together sometime so you can show me the ropes for a few of the local areas. I bring my friends kids fishing with me once in a while and I want to take them to productive spots so they don't lose interest in fishing.

      Sorry, don't remember TJ Hooker.  Besides I make it a practice to avoid hookers....  (rim shot)

        This post is turning into an 80's  TJ HOOKER episode! To fun to turn off an so bad it needs to be made fun of. : )

      This year?   It is new this year.... Apparently a lot of businesses are having trouble hiring seasonal employees.

      I have only been there a few times, but that doesn't make any sense based on my visits.

      I am headed to MN for my annual trip and wanted to target pike on leech. For the past 5-6 years I have been kayaking smaller lakes around the area but now I am back to having a decent boat for bigger waters. Used to fish the east side flats in Headquarters and Boy bay prior to my kayak days. Usual came earlier in the year as well. Bucktails on weedlines still my best bet or do you think crankbaits are the way to go just off weedlines? Better spots than others? Should be there a few days before / after Labor Day.

        I believe the  problem here is a hull with rocker.   At different trim and speed the hull does just that, rocks.   Normally you'd trim in, throttle up and once on plane, throttle back to cruise speed and adjust the trim out.    To be trimmed all in at WOT or even cruising speed would make must hulls plow water at the bow.   In the case with rocker you usually find the porpoise stops when you increase speed.   The fin might be enough to lift the transom up and stabilize it.   Let us know what you do and how it works.

      Went and tried a new spot... 3 snacky cats. One of them took my rod straight into the river and I had to dive in after it. Good times.

      I use the Daiwa ct r also have 2 of them best out there in my opinion.
    • FishinCT
      Pretty good for me from Monday through Wednesday. Found them from 14-24ft depending on the spot but most fish came from under 20ft. Trust the electronics and motor around til you find a good school. They are hitting pretty well when you find them
