      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 .

UPLlogoNEW_web.jpg

I'm proud to announce the 9th season of the Ultimate Panfish League (UPL) presented by Matt Johnson Outdoors, Hot Spot Outdoors and Thorne Brothers!!

I'm very excited to start another season and work with Hot Spot Outdoors for promotions and solid info! The crowd here certainly enjoys the sport of ice fishing and hopefully we can carry over that excitement by sharing our league's stories and event recaps/photos.

That being said, we currently have a couple spots that opened up to anyone interested. It's first come, first serve. Please visit the www.ultimatepanfishleague.com website for more info about the league and for contact info. Otherwise I can answer any questions right here.

Looking forward to another great year and very excited to share it with HSO!!!

Highly recommended if you like panfishing, ice fishing, competition, or just getting together with other anglers.

Also if you want to see your fishing skill level increase big time, this will do it! I have been in the UPL since it first started and it really helped me to become very deadly, and Have seen it do the same for many of the participants. i now look forward to winter as my favorite time to chase panfish because of the UPL!

Looks like fun. Any spots still open? If so I will have to find a partner. Any rules on alternate's filling in if someone isn't able to make it for a particular outing?

There is actually a spot left if you want it... and yes, you can have different a substitute if your partner misses an event. However, the team captain has to be present for your event points to count...

Matt, we want to get something started. I think we could go from Chads area, up to mine and even farther north! I see this as being a great opportunity to get together with fellow panfish anglers and see what the great white north has to offer!

You guys know my email address, and if you don't, it's in my signature.

I would like get it started and also see what feedback we get from other anglers. This would be great to see this up in our neck of the woods.

Jim, keep us informed. Maybe if needed to fill spots and open on our schedule some of us original UPL'ers could make a remote stop.

      5.7% success in warm, breezy weather.  Hopefully that doubles for next weekend.  I think the weather will be a little cooler at least. I only heard 1 field report.  2 does and 2 fawns sighted. 1 in the morning and 3 in the evening.   I've heard area reports the deer are starting to move but not much for scrapes and such.  The leaves have been coming down and the woods opening up.  I've personally seen the deer start and stop using some areas as fall has set in.

      Hello, I'm from Chicago but I have a lot of family in Rochester. I come up for a week every few months and always do great fishing for Large mouth. I was hoping to find some spots to specifically target Pike that are within 30 mins of Rochester. I will be mainly shore fishing.  Thank you

      Got up to Bowstring again at Geigers Trails End Resort. Went up to get some crappies nd found them but again could not get one to bite out deep.  One spot they were 7 feet thick ! LOL   So we chased perch and did great. No 12 inchers but a lot of dandies. Not sure if I will get back up before ice.  Crappies should be great this winter.

      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.

      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.
