      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.

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.

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.

      Rivers are so under fished in this state.  People seem to gravitate towards lakes all the time and avoid rivers but the reality is that rivers, large and small, have awesome fishing.

      same results here lots of fish but had to sort through them for keepers. How bout them jumbo perch mixed in though wow.  I actually was catching quite a few smallmouth deeper as well. I had good luck with gulp alive pink shine 4" minnows too seem to catch bigger fish 
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      PSU, Lots of smaller walleyes mixed in with the keeper sized fish at most spots. A few spots do seem to have a larger percentage of keeper sized fish though. Looks very good for the next couple of years! Cliff
    • PSU
      Lot's of walleyes to be had, but most for me seem to be smaller (8-10 inches)

      Is it always impossible to get a hold of Jeff?? It took me like 8 calls to get a hold of him, brought my boat down after I got a hold of him. I told him I was hoping to use it this weekend for one last trip...I've called him multiple times for an update and he never answers... Seems odd for a business.

      You know it’s a good day when you’re thumb looks like that from lipping the fish! What sizes are you getting right now, Rick?
    • Rick G
      Last two days have been incredible for both size and numbers

      Recreational netting for whitefish and tullibee (cisco) is anticipated to open on several Schedule I Lakes in the Grand Rapids fisheries work area beginning in late October, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. Schedule I Lakes, which are more susceptible to sudden changes that impact water temperatures, will be opened and closed on a 48-hour notice posted at lake accesses, other public places, and the DNR website. Schedule II Lakes, will open Nov. 3. Schedule I Lakes (48 hour notice) Anticipated opening dates are as follows: Friday, Oct. 27 through Sunday, Dec.3, for Deer (near Deer River), and Turtle (3.5 inch mesh). Friday, Nov. 3 through Sunday, Dec. 10, for Side and South Sturgeon (1.75 inch mesh). Friday, Nov. 10 through Sunday, Dec. 10, for Big Balsam and Nashwauk (1.75 inch mesh). Schedule II Lakes Lakes open to whitefish and cisco sport netting Friday, Nov. 3 through Sunday, Dec. 10: Bass (north basin). Ball Club. Bowstring*. Little Bowstring. Cut Foot Sioux*. Deer (near Effie). Grave. Jessie. Maple. Pokegama. Round (near Squaw Lake –1.75 inch mesh). Rush Island. Sand (near Max)*. Swan.  (1.75 inch mesh) Twin Lakes (near Marble). Winnibigoshish* and Little Winnibigoshish* (1.75 inch mesh). *Bowstring, Cut Foot Sioux, Sand, Winnibigoshish and Little Winnibigoshish are designated infested waters because of the presence of faucet snails or zebra mussels. Nets and equipment used in infested waters may not be used in any other waterbody unless they have been dried for ten days or frozen for two days. Fishing regulations require that: Netters purchase both a whitefish netting license and angling license. A person may use only one gill net, not exceeding 100 feet in length and 3 feet in width. One end of net must have a pole, stake, or buoy projecting at least two feet above the surface of the water or ice. Nets must have an identification tag attached near the first float of the end that is projecting from the surface of the water or ice. Identification tags must be a minimum of 2 ½ inches by 5/8 inch permanently bearing the name and address of the owner. Identification tags for marking nets are provided by the owner. Nets may not be set after sunset or raised before sunrise. All gill nets must be set and lifted by the licensee only. Anyone assisting in the taking of whitefish or ciscoes must have proper licensing. Nets must be tended at least once every 24 hours and all gamefish and non-target species must be immediately released from the net. A net may not be set in any water deeper than six feet. A net may not be set within 50 feet of another net. Minimum gill net mesh size shall be no less than 1-3/4 or 3-1/2 inch stretch measure depending on the lake (see full list of lake and size regulations online). Nets used in designated infested waters must be dried for a minimum of 10 days or frozen for 2 days before using in a different water body. Nets should be dried for 10 days or frozen for 2 before moving from any lake to another. Nets used in spiny water flea and/or zebra mussel infested waters should be not used in any other waterbody Nets should be transported in sealed container. Whitefish and ciscoes taken by sport gill-netting may not be bought or sold. Whitefish and ciscoes taken by sport gill-netting may not be used as bait. Within the Leech Lake Reservation boundaries, the possession limit for whitefish taken by sport gill-netting is 25, and the possession limit for ciscoes taken by sport gill-netting is 50. Net placement should not inhibit use of the lake by other boaters. About 700 people obtain special permits to net for whitefish-tullibee each year. The DNR bases netting schedules on expected water temperatures, fish abundance and vulnerability of game fish. As the water temperature cools, game fish head to deeper water and whitefish-tullibee come to shallow water for fall spawning.  Netting is allowed when there is little chance that game fish populations would be negatively impacted by recreational netting in shallow water. Find information about sport netting by lake, minimum mesh sizes, and fishing regulations at http://files.dnr.state.mn.us/rlp/regulations/fishing/whitefish-tullibee.pdf or contact the DNR’s Grand Rapids area office at 1201 East Highway 2, Grand Rapids, MN 55744, or call 218-328-8836.
