      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 .

Bridges

I have always found it very interesting how certain bridges hold more walleye than other bridge areas. Another interesting fact is that the predominately shallow water around the bridges on the St.Croix River seems to hold more eyes during the heat of July and August. Hard to figure out...the current definately plays a part...but If it works, don't fix it, right...

I haven't had any luck fishing bridges. I have been fishing the St.Croix for 15 years. I know the section of the river from the Stillwater bridge to William O'brian state park like the back of my hand. Every once in a while you can get some fish over 15" but the majority are small. I have been experimenting in lake st. croix and have had some luck. Quite a few Small mouth, some walleyes. Where can a guy go to catch his limit of wallesys on the river?

Went fishing on the St.Croix with Turk and JaSayTree on Saturday the 8th of July. I'd like to say Turk knows the river very well. We hit a lot of spots your average joe would'nt know about about. We would cruise out(into what seemed to be in the middle of no where) in to flats that would be adjacent to sheer drop offs etc. He knew the hot structured spots. Unfortunately, we didn't catch a bucket full, but we did manage to catch a 1/2 dozen walleye some smallmouth, crappie and the unforgiving drum. We even fished a spot that was directly in the middle of the ridiculous boat traffic. This spot produced the largest walleye of the day! Hmmmmm! Thanks a lot Turk- Is it your birthday?

Well Gang,

I'll respond to RVRRAT first, In terms of catching a limit, I would stick to Big lake St. Croix and South this time of year. The 12-14 inch saugers went wild today so that could have been a limit. The walldads are starting to suspend and roam the big open areas making fishing difficult. Stay deep in 25-35 feet and pull cranks on points and the saugers and wallies should be in the well near days end.

Jim W, I must say you and your associate from Rochester are some of the best sheepshead anglers I have seen since another board favorite Kapt'n Karl...Doubles and triples ..on and on...you know though that the eyes were just not as aggresive as sheeps making fishing difficult...as you saw the eyes were in there with them!

Thanks for the business hopefully we can do it again!
Keep Catchin'

I just want to say that Turk is an excellent guide and worth every penny! He knows that River quite impressively. JimW and I were also quite impressed with the almost encyclopedia-like knowledge that pours out at any given time. I especially liked the small partical info "passed" onto us... wonderful stuff!!! If you want to learn more about the St. Croix, or just have a ton of fun fishing... I highly recommend getting ahold of Turk at CroixSippi!!!

JA!
