      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 .

1st Trip to Rainy River - A Blast

Recommended Posts

Guest

Just got back from our annual trip to Kabatogama. Because of the winds, our resort host suggested trying the River in the Falls. We put the boat in at Shorewood Dr and proceeded to have a ball catching Bass and Northerns on the Flyrod and our ultralights. Fished a total of 3 days with the following results.

24 Sep Fished from double Island below plants, down to Island and first big bend. 10AM to 5PM 24 bass, avg 14-16? largest 16.5?, 12 Northerns, avg 26-29?
25 Sep Fished from double Island below Plants down to Rock Reef near Golf Course 10AM ? 4:30PM 33 Bass, 14-17 avg, largest 20?, 31 Northerns, 26-29? avg, 4 fish over 29 inches, largest 37?.
27 Sep Fished double Islands to golf course 10AM to 5:15PM, 34 Bass, avg 14-15?, largest 16.5?, 19 Northerns, avg 26?, 2 Walleye, largest 20?

Techniques:

Bass and Northerns were caught using Rappala #4 Shadraps, #4 Jointed Shadraps (Fire Tiger and Perch), Tiny Torpedos (Fire Tiger top water lure). Some bass were caught on Fly rod using a red/white deciever pattern or a weighted black leech pattern. Most of the big Northerns were nailed with the Red/White Deciever fished with a moderate retrieve in the slack water below the islands and inside shoreline eddys.

That sounds like bigtime fun for sure. I love catching smallies on my 7wt magic wand!

We won't be back to the Falls until next Summer, but I'm wondering how well the river fishes when the water is higher. The low water made locating fish extremely easy. They were very predictable. When the river is up, say 5+ feet more, does it fish as well? We fished with a traditional bass boat, but I'm wondering what a stronger current might do?

      I checked a small lake in Arden Hills after work yesterday. Measured 3-4”. Should be ready for me to actually fish next time.
