      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 .

Fall Fishing on the Rainy River

Recommended Posts

October 9th, 2013:

Today was another beautiful day on the River. Can't believe how last week it was so cold and now it's been so nice...I guess that is how it is all the time in Minnesota though. One group said they saw shiners "boiling" by the airport during their stay so far. This same group has had wonderful fishing with their biggest walleye being 26 inches so far. This group also caught quite a few walleyes that were 19.5"-20" that were released and kept mainly 17-19 inch walleyes. There was a sturgeon caught but they didn't have a good way to get it in the boat to measure it but he said it looked 60 plus inches along side the boat.

Here is part of a days catch:

A couple said that fishing was very good for day. Another group also had a nice day of fishing with beautiful weather. There were shiners in front of the house last night along with sturgeon jumping.

October 6th, 2013:

The shiners are starting to move up the river so the walleye are starting to move in. We have a group of 4 guys that were out fishing today and yesterday that caught quite a few walleyes and even kept their limits for supper.

Everyone that was out fishing had a good day of fishing. With some slot fish in the 20s being caught and a sturgeon they guess was 50 inches plus. Everyone caught some fish to keep and either take home or have for supper. The biggest walleye we heard that was caught was 23 inches.

Most of the day it was lightly raining and fishing had slowed down for some groups and other groups said they did good. They are hoping that tomorrow will be nicer and the walleyes will be biting for them.

October 11th, 2013:

Despite the wind and rain later in the day most groups still caught some nice keeper walleyes. One group enjoyed fried fish for supper.

Today ended up being a gorgeous day after the a cold morning with frosted windshields. This morning we talked to one of the groups and they said that fishing was slower and that they did a lot better in the evening yesterday so hopefully tonight was better for them. Another group caught their limit of walleyes for the day which were all nice sized ones. Here's to a busy weekend and hopefully good fishing and nice weather!

October 15th, 2013:

Despite the cooler temps we had today two different groups had a good day of fishing. The biggest one we heard of was just under 23 inches. A group said they caught about 40 fish just in the afternoon and evening.

One group caught about 50 fish between yesterday and today. With a few bigger walleyes being between 21-23 inches. The weather was a lot nicer today and tomorrow they are talking a high of 50 degrees with winds 20-30 mph out of the SE.

      The crappie bite here has been very fussy, almost like ice fishing. So windy it's been tough to fish the way they seem to want it, most of the time.

      4 outfits out here right now.

      Fall fishing is so solid on Lake of the Woods right now. The fish may bite a different times everyday but they bite, and bite good, everyday. Had Pete Smith in the boat Thursday and it really couldn't have gone any better. Check it out, this weeks NCOR LOTW Fishing Report from Curt's NCOR Guide Service

      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.
