      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 .

Hello there. I am a student in the F-M area. I was wondering if anyone can suggest some shore fishing spots in the area that seem to net good results.

Thanks in advance,
Phillip

Your probably driving over the best opportunity in the tri state area every day! I was a student and the moneys usually pretty tight. The red river is a tremendous and underfished resource. I would start at the north dam in moorehead and ask eddy over in the red river, ottertail and bois de sioux forums, these are his stomping grounds. Please remember to throw some of those hoggers back! Good luck and good fishing!! Paul

Yep Pauls right the north Dam is a good spot. I used to go on the Moorhead side alot. It has alot of riprap on that side and the walleyes love those huge chunks of concrete... Bring alot of extra jigs that concrete really eats up alot of tackle. Its the price you have to pay to catch them tho they hide there because the current is too strong. Some times try a bit lighter jig and let the current take it naturally to the fish. o ya weekends and nights are bad if u dont like fishing with 20 people but weekday mornings u could have the place to your self!!!! O ya there was a article in the fargo forum a while ago about shore fishing you might be able to find it on their home page... Good luck

North dam is just north of the 12th AVe toll bridge (its 12th AVE in Fargo, not sure what ave it is in Moorehead), there is a little gravel road that leads to it on the moorhead side just before you get the bridge.

From what I've read and heard, fish are safe to eat out of the Red as long as you're not eating very large, old fish. I usually only keep walleye under 3 lbs and Northern under 5. I've never eaten the cats, just fun to catch.

Thanks for all the replies. I am actually quite familiar with the Red and Buffalo rivers north of Moorhead. I have been fishing them since I was a pup.

Eating cats outta the Red is no good unless they are small fish caught very early. The mud bottom tend to make the flesh very mushy.

I would also be curious to know any good lake or river spots in the ottertail/becker area from shore.

Thanks for the great replies

I feel pretty stupid , I lived in Moorhead all my life and I have to ask this question.

Where is North Dam?

and most importantly,
Can you eat fish out of the Red?
I thought it was one of the dirtiest poluted rivers around here.

thanks

      Ditto. I switched to a 3 inch shell in #2 shot. I missed a few wood ducks this morning but got one teal. Not bad for the WMA I was hunting. 2 ducks would be great. 3-4 like you won the lottery. Saw plenty of action but it was fast moving wood ducks out of range. Geese never showed. And you can't shoot trumpeter swans! There were plenty of those. Let my boy sleep in this morning. Tomorrow we'll hit the more pressured lake. I saw at least one person setting up on it this morning on my drive to the WMA. The nice thing about that - when you're almost certain you'll be the only one there - is that you can roll in not long before shooting time if it doesn't take you long to set up.

      Hey Moose , sounds like some tough shooting as of late for you at those duckies . Just curious as to what choke you are using ?

      Has anyone ever stored with Oak Narrows Storage before? Need a spot to put a Polaris Ranger for the winter and thinking of calling them for a space, does anyone have any experience or feedback? Any other recommendations would be welcome. Need a 10x10 or 10x12 space likely.
      Thanks!

      the rum is back in its banks so bet the fishing is amazing? Anyone out trying? Where are all of you? I know it’s busy time but let us know what you are chasing.
    • monstermoose78
      I need to slow down and focus on shooting 
    • MinnowBuckets
