      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 .

Who wants to go to BSL on Sunday?

Recommended Posts

fishuhalik

I'm heading up to Big Sandy on Sunday early morning (4:30-5:00) for a full day on Sunday, going mainly after tullies but maybe a crappie or two. Any takers? I live in Plymouth and we can take off from my apartment, meet somewhere on the way, whatever works. I'll cover most/all of the gas, if you wanna throw in $10 I wouldn't turn it down. I have a ford contour, so I can fit 3-4 full-size guys in my car somewhat comfortably, w/ gear in the trunk.

I wish I could say yes to that but I wouldn't know if I was able to go until Sunday. More fixing cars this weekend so I won't know if I could go until I am done repairing stuff.

Had some of the best panfishing of my life. Caught almost a dozen sunnies over 9, and 1 over 10"plus some crappies (3 over 12") mixed in. Worked the north shore from the Big sand bar. The guy we were with knew where to go, but I will say we were a ways from the crowds. You'll catch a few crappies in the crowds, but look for a spot at the base of the break in around 20' of water on the north shore, and you'll do OK. If you dont mark fish in the immediate area, DRILL MOVE DRILL MOVE DRILL MOVE. The key is to find the unpressured fish and pick them off. THey're getting hit pretty hard, and are getting a little skittish.

I will do that. It really would be awesome to get outa town for a day so that would be sweet. Plus I got a smoker now and tullibies are great smoked. I will let you know when I know. Gotta fix Mom's car first so that will determine the weekend for me depending on whats wrong.

midcoast, it depends on the day. I've done really well on jigs that a guy on here makes, I can't mention his name since he's not a sponsor, but they're tiny, tiny hair jigs (1/80th & 1/100th oz.) sometimes with a waxie/spike sometimes just plain, no maggot. I've also heard of guys that do really well on small pimples, diamond jigs, fiskas, etc. If they're not eating sometime, keep switching til ya find the trigger

Feathers Rainin

Fishaholic I have a shack in McGregor and I was thinking about going up and hitting a trout lake near there Saturday and hit BSL on sunday. If I don't go up tomorrow or Saturday morn I would love to come up and hit the ice with you Sunday or we could just meet there on Sunday. If you can we could do both days and stay at my shack. Shoot me an e-mail if you have an interest and we could figure out a plan. youngpetera@gmail.com

feathers, I may be able to take ya up on that, only problem is I have to watch my son at least most of the day on saturday. I'm gonna try to talk my sister into watching him in the evening, my wife's working, and we could maybe head up then. That way we wouldn't have to wake up at technically 3:30!! I'm emailing you my number, call me sometime this evening, after about 7:30, I should be there. If I'm not, just leave a message and I'll call ya back.

      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.

      Any thoughts, opinions on the new lighted jigs from tundra tackle. Anyone seen them in any store. I could only find on-line. https://www.tundratackleco.com/collections/frontpage

      I have a number of family and friends fishing the river Thursday thru Sunday this week.  No reports yet.  I will pass them along as soon as i hear.

      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.

      same results here lots of fish but had to sort through them for keepers. How bout them jumbo perch mixed in though wow.  I actually was catching quite a few smallmouth deeper as well. I had good luck with gulp alive pink shine 4" minnows too seem to catch bigger fish

      PSU, Lots of smaller walleyes mixed in with the keeper sized fish at most spots. A few spots do seem to have a larger percentage of keeper sized fish though. Looks very good for the next couple of years! Cliff
