      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 .

I know for sturgeons there a site were you can enter the tag number and they will send you a report on the fish, cant find it right now of course. Question is there one for walleyes we got a tagged one yesterday. Just wondering what to do with it not the tag as we are keeping it but does the dnr want to know anything about the number.

Did you keep the fish too? Please tell me you didn't cut the tag off the fish and released it?

There is a path on the MNDNR website for reporting all tagged fish, i just need a few minutes to find it.

I caught 4 tagged fish last weekend. I called the DNR Baudette office to find out how to enter the tag numbers and info. I was informed that there is not a website to enter that info anymore and you have to do it over the phone. The information will then be Emailed or mailed to you in approx. 2 weeks depending on how busy the DNR is at the time.

If you do catch a tagged fish they will require the day, the general area the fish was caught, the length of the fish, and whether you kept or released the fish.

A website would be waaaaaayyyyy easier and also would probably give you immediate information on that fish.

Sorry didn’t mean to imply you cut the tag off.  I think it just happens quite a bit that people want to keep the tag for their collection and I know the DNR guys get frustrated by that.   Not sure why the Baudette office informed you that you have to call, the link I posted is a very simple way to do it and I’ve used it quite a bit in the past year, especially for tagged sturgeon

MN-DNR has a bunch of tagged sturgeon swimming around, but we haven't tagged any walleye since about 1982. The Department of Fisheries and Oceans (kind of a Canadian version of the Fish and Wildlife Service) tagged a bunch of walleye in the Rainy River, downstream of International Falls, as part of a study to determine the effects of the Rainy Lake rule curve on the Rainy River.

The DNR tag reporting page doesn't recognize the Canadian tags as valid numbers, so those get rejected. You can call in tagged walleye to either the International Falls (218-286-5220) or Baudette (218-634-2522) Fisheries offices, and your information will get forwarded to the correct person.

I'm not sure how the message was conveyed regarding the tag reporting web site, but rest assured that it is still active, and very useful.

      You may want to consider #3 ; Rapala Jiggin Raps, or drop shoting. They both have been putting some nice size suspended slabs topside under some breezy conditions as of late. Fishing sure was downright epic the last week for all species. To bad it looks like "global warmering" is coming to an end for this year, was awesome while it lasted...... Those are some decent perch panman54. LOL!

      Pretty remote and flat back there. I haven't been on that exact shoreline but I bet you can pull a boat up there quite easily.

      I didnt hear how the second day went yet.  The long term average is 8% success up to 10% during the 2 deer era.  so 5.7% isnt bad for day 1.   Cooler weather will hopefully help us second weekenders. I havent seen much for rubs or scrapes here yet, should be starting any day.

      HooDoo Point, Everett Bay public landing, or the Casino are all good landings if you want to fish Big Bay. The Y-Store or  the Food and Fuel in Tower both have good bait. Cliff

      Anything from moccasin point west can be pretty spotty with Verizon. If you're on big bay it's tough to beat

      I just read an article in the paper recently, that pout fest might be relocated to Lake Bemidji in 2018. It never gave a reason why though. Anyone know anything?

      Lauren (Bubba) Sawatsky has a storage facility just north of Cook on 24.  Might give him a call. http://www.vermilionbarginginc.com/htmls/storage.html 218 666 5512

      There is a problem with the latency of satellite.  Makes loading pages slow.    I agree that a cell phone data plan/hotspot is your best bet.  I think Verizon on East end, and ATT on West end are the choices.   ATT has a tower near Cook, and on south shore of Frazier as mentioned.
