      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 .

If you go to the Hudec's website and click of the fishing reports it's full of reports saying how awful Hudec's is. Also full of smut. Doesn't look like it gets monitored.

It seems like some personal issues. Ive stayed there with no problems. The fishing in Jan is good any place on the lake.

Interesting stuff on that unregulated board.

I've fished out of Hudec's for three years. Don has been very gracious to me and my buddies.

I've never stayed in the rooms or in a fish house, but I wouldn't hesitate to make a reservation to do so. When you've got several thousand people going through your access every week, you're bound to get a few that find something to complain about.

I stayed at Hudec's a couple yeards ago and had no problems whatsover. The room wasn't the Waldorf, but I was there to fish. The price was good and the room clean. Stay and enjoy.

Jjigstick; if you have time, could you send us an email about your posting on Red Lake, I, if not we, may have some thoughts for you about Red that you didnt know! kind of like who grew up there, the best guides, the keepers of the lake that have been hanging on , when everyone else gave up and moved on; even we new nothing till we started going there to find out what they went through all theses years, and they stuck it out; yes we went for the fish too, BUT; you know it wasnt just the fish ;, it was the people that brought us back; they come from all walks of life, and different places, I myself love fishing and so does Judy, but dam there is just a time to see these people and B.S the fishing is a darn good plus. any ?s just holler; there good people up there

Jjigstick,
If you are going fishing to have fun you will have fun. If you are expecting a bad time you will have a bad time. The choice is yours.
I have a pile of e-mails here directed at me that are worse then anything said about Hudec's on their forum. I look at them and realize that some people will never be able to lean back and enjoy a day of fishing. If you go fishing and everything works out great AND you catch fish awesome. grin.gif But if you go fishing and nothing goes right AND the fish don't bite,,,,,,,it still beats a day at work. smile.gif The choice is yours how your day will go, either enjoy the time away from "the real world" or carry the tension of the real world with you and ruin a day of fishing. The choice is there for each and every one of us. How our time fishing went is up to each of us whether to enjoy it or be mad about it.

Kelly,

Sorry about all those E-mails it was a screw up!! They were supose to go to my ex-girlfriend (REDHEAD). I don't know how they were sent to you instead!!

I met Labs4Me last month turns out he lives about 3 miles from me. Good guy! I heard the other side of the story about the rear ending last winter. Turns out you were wearing chains and slammed on your brakes and thats why you stopped so fast and he didn't!!!! It's always good to hear both sides of the stories!

Counting the days to start the crappie new year.

Jigstick-I went to LOW last year and stayed at a resort that I had heard was not going to be a pleasant experience. By people that I did not know(A week before going!)It was the best we have ever done.Great fishing and accomodations.
I checked out that message board myself and I don't think I'd put too much stock in anything posted there.There were probably only two posts that sounded as if they had any decency to them.So just have fun and don't forget the Leinies.

By the way I have stayed at Hudecs a couple of times. In the rooms in their little motel always very nice people and very nice and clean rooms. I would not hesitate to stay again or advertise a place to stay.

crappie getter,
I didn't get all those e-mails you mentioned. BUMMER! frown.gif They could have been interesting. hehehehe
I think it's normal to slam on the brakes when if you don't someone in a white truck is going to slam into you from the left. shocked.gif I'm doing things different his year. This truck is so ugly that I'm gonna rent out spaces on it for people to slide into. Right front fender, $150. Left front, $250. A door will have to be $500 cause they keep the cold out. smile.gif
I'll see you the 5th.

      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.
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      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.

      Headed up for one last weekend of open water fishing.  Anyone been out this week, how’s the bite?

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