      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 .

Nothing out of the ordinary so far. I caught a 19.5" smallie out of Green Lake again this year. grin.gif I caught one last year that was just under 20".
I suppose you can consider a 13" Rock Bass pretty big.
But so far no big pike or eyes in my book.
I have had a few hit-misses while fishing for pike. They were prolly around 10-15lb fish but I failed to connect with them.

------------------
And keep those hooks sharp!

Nothing too special here either... my best have been a 17.5" and 19.5" smallie out of Nest Lake on the same day. Also out of Nest, the biggest walleye of the season was a 23 incher. One interesting catch (well, almost) was a 15-20 pound carp on a tiny Rebel Crawdad crankbait while fishing for panfish. He hit the bait, I set the hook and he just swam right at the boat. When he got to the boat, he just swimming right past. With my ultra light and 4lb line there was nothing I could do to stop him. I fought him for about 15 minutes before he finally took me into the weeds and broke me off. If I hadn't seen that it was a carp I probably would have been pretty upset.

Nothing reel special. Caught a lot of 19" Large mouth out of Norway. A few 8-10lb norts. Don't get me wrong all great fish to catch and release. All in all it has been a great fishing year.

Well over all I think My 3year boy and I had pretty good luck so far. Specially the kid, he caught a 8lb Walleye on a leech last month. The picture was also published on Sat. in the out door section of W.C Tribune. If I can figure out how to post pic on this site I'll be glad to do it.
Other wise I had couple of C&R done for eyes in the 22"-24" range. Consedring the limited times I have been out fishing I call this a good season smile.gif


Later,

J.

Caught a 27 1/2" walleye on the MN river in May. And last Friday aft. got a 21" largemouth on Nest Lake. Both fish are still swimming for someone else to catch!

BTW.....LEECH, that walleye came from just down river about 2 miles or so from the county 6 bridge where you fish.

Hey SPUD, you said you didn't use a boat on the river...just curious if this spot two miles down is road accessable? I know of the gravel road north and south of the river (the scenic roadway). Do you get there from one of those roads? Thanks for any info! LEECH

You get ther off the north river road (renville co. side), but the river is at least 1/2 mile off the gravel if not more. My buddy has a glorified donkey trail that we use to get down to the river. But if it has just got done raining recently you can forget using the trail. It gets a little slick and soft.
