      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 .

Paul,

Is it true the DNR doesn't stock Lida for walleyes? Do you know why they don't?

I have found this to be a very good fishery, especially for walleyes, over the last few years, and assumed it was due to DNR stocking and then I saw a sign on the North access last year that said the DNR doesn't stock it and wondered why.

Hi Kirsch,
Long time no type!
The stocking efforts on lida were taken over by the lake lida stocking club. It is a combined effort of the resorts, lakeshore property owners and various sportsmans clubs. Instead of the dnr planting fingerlings they go through all the effort of selling raffle tickets to purchase 12 inch plus walleyes to put into the lake. The voulintary 15 inch minimum size gives them a bit of a chance to grow up before they get cropped off. I buy these tickets every chance I get as the fish they are putting in cost a ton. Catch and release is pretty important to this heavily pressured lake. Maybe someone who is active with this program will put up a post? Paul

Paul,

Thanks for the info on Lida, and I am glad to be back. My wife and I had a little girl this Winter and needless to say it has challenged some of my free time.

Between having a 1st child, working part time as a hunting guide, working part time as a computer consultant, and my actual job, I didn't get a chance to fish or talk about fishing much. I hope to be out in the Perham area hitting the lakes often this Spring and Summer.

If you get a chance, read my post on the electronics area of fishing minnesota. I have figured out a process of taking DNR maps and mark waypoints on them and upload those spots to a GPS. You know as I do the DNR maps are missing a lot of detail, but they give you a good starting point on a lake that a person hasn't fished or has fished a limited number of times.

I used this technique to scout Big Pine last year before the Barrel of Fun tourney and it worked well. Guys like you who have fished it for many, many years probably wouldn't need it, but for a guy like me who fishes it once a year, it works great.

I hope to see you on soft water soon.

Hi Kirsch,
I can relate to the time consumed having a little one! I'm going through the same thing right now. Yes it is worth every minute you can spend with them too.. Mine is super busy, you dont dare take your eyes off of her for a moment. I've been playing with the lakemaster software myself. It's not too bad, things always look different when you get on the water it seems. Its a good way to start tho. congrats on the new little one and I hope we can run across eachn other sometime this summer.... Paul

      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.

      VG, Good bite most days now! All minnows for me. jigs or lindys. Chubs, shiners, and pike suckers. Found walleyes from 8' to 40' yesterday. Cliff

      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.
