      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 .

Bald Eagle report.

Recommended Posts


Welp! Went out today (Mon 6.24.2004) at 3:00pm... were only 4 car/trailers. Was a fun day.. even though it was SO windy and high water.

Nice ramp! Double ramp with floating docks on either side. Not steep at all.. easy for my low car.

Here is our report... We caught some bass, some crappies, some sunnies, some walleyes, and just ONE pike (?) in our 4 hours... really fun.. but not much to write home about... but one of the walleyes and one of the bass were beauties!

Most of our action was on Mr. Twisters with white Powerbait grubs in a bay- the 5th red dot down on the right from the top (if you emailed me for the map)... I don't know how else to explain it. Got one GREAT Walleye there too... and 5 or 6 bass- one was at least 4 Lbs (largemouth only)... at the visible weed edges just across from the 5 or 6 docks in the small bay.

We also tried adding some of the Berkley "gulps" to the jig and they really did seem to help.. We used yellow.. and my niece was using those on a small green crappie jig (not sure what it is called) and got many crappies/sunnies there... and we also caught many in the south portion of the lake.. right at the two most SE red dots on the map... one after the other.

We tried the rock hump in the middle/east too.. (marked by buoys) and had many strikes with leeches.. but never pulled up anything... I would guess they were walleye but who knows. In the space of 200 feet the depth changes from 25 feet... to 4 feet... and back to 25 feet. Really a long ridge there.

And that was just our first day- going back tomorrow to explore more of the lake. I will add my findings here... I hit only 3 of my 20 places I wanted to visit! Time flies when your fishing.... Tx for the tips to those who emailed me for the map.. I will add the spots will email the map back to you if you ask in a couple weeks.. I don’t save old address/emails so I won’t do it automatically! smile.gif

My daughter and I are hitting a couple of lakes today, and Bald Eagle is my first spot.

I will be leaving in a few hours. Hopefully I can get her into some action.


Good fishing,

      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.

      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.
