      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 .

Croix hot bite!

What a great few days on the water, where to start...

Walleyes, though I haven't been hammering big ones the the croix is starting to "get with it" and the bite is up. I talked to a fisherman that I've seen many times before and this time since we were the only two "fools" on the water, we shared a common bond and jigged and chatted for about a half hour, it was great! It felt like old times when everybody was friendly (that's a two way street I know, but...), He informed me of some massive hogs caught on the Croix two 30" ers in the same day!!!!!! ya baby! and he also indicated that he had never caught a 30 on the Croix before, and I believed him, he wasn't b.s.ing, and was kind enough to tip me off to the location. To those of you new to the croix 30" ers or larger are very rare, much rarer than say on Mille or the Miss. A trophy no doubt!

saugers- have been on a tear! they just have been devoring my minnows, suckers have been working great, since nice fats have been hard to come by! When they are hitting it makes the cold a little bit warmer, If ya know what I mean!

Sturgeon- Nearly every angler I've been talking to and myself has been messing with the venerable kings of the deep!!!! I fought a massive 5 footer today, yes 5 feet, for 45 minutes on 6lb. test (vertical jigging 3/8 ouncers)and the line finally broke. I horsed it, I got impatient after all that time. She jumped two times within 10 feet of the boat within the first five minutes - ToTAL AIR!!! Let party! is what I thought, but she left me alone at the dance crying in the corner!!! I landed a 50" last year and this one dwarfed her. It was the best.

Vertical jigging large minnows or ripping sonars IS the ticket in water from 28-38 as reported on this website.
Can't wait to get back- weather permitting.

Keep Cathin'

Sounds good Turk!

Man that sturgon must have been a hooT! We have 3 footers on the Red that were newly restocked a few years back. Some day I hope my kid's will see 5 footers again on the Red.

You checking on any flatheads in the pools? They should be holed up now and a prime target for 6" sassy's or Pogo's, that sounds like a blast too. FFO has 6" POGO's on special this week, 50 ct. bags for 18 bucks, good deal!

      Looking to get on some walleye and crappie this week, looks like mayflies were out in full force last night when I was on the lake. First year fishing this lake, where does a guy start?

      Thank you one and all, especially you Tommy. Some very kind words and ditto to you my friend. "Ace" "It's just fishing man"

      Picked up some nice crappie and a couple eater walleyes on Allouez Bay the other day before the rains. Trolled crawlers with one light split shot and others with bottom bouncers. I was surprised at how big the crappie were

      ripped out some old boards that were well past their prime on my boat.  Any recomendations on what to replace them with?  They looked to be treated plywood but wondering if getting something different would work better.  Such as a piece of 1 x 12 pine and throwing a few coats of polyurethane on it as well?  The boards I am talking about are for the benches.   Also, replacing the seats in there as well.  Previous i had the the vinyl foam seats.  When shopping around i am seeing a lot of the molded plastics chairs.  Any preference out there for durability?  Vinyl rips but wondering if the molded crack or break?   Thanks for any feed back!

      The flocks of geese are now flying over my house in the morning and evening, but when this happens Finn gets all jacked up. Like right now he is nudging me and running pawing at the window. A few minutes earlier when the first gaggle few over I was going to change the laundry and Finn raced down and sat by gun safe  whining.  Fishing reports have been great for crappies on the area lakes. Walleyes are not biting as well in lakes but when the rum is clearer that is the place to be. Bears any no quota hunters this might be your year to get a bear around here.  Deer seem to every where drive carefull.  Seeing some ducks flying around.  I have seen a few grouse and pheasants.

      I've been by a time or two trying to figure out which place is yours.   I was out on wakemup last night too.   Got nothing, on crawlers.  Started out at merry go round, went to "picnic island" (little island east/south of taylors).  rigged along edge of those two humps in like 18-25 feet.   Musky guys were coming so I turned.  They turned too, chunking baits in the vicinity of my boat.   Then some guys in a pontoon pulled up and anchored in front of me  and threw out bobbers.   Fished a while longer, and it was getting sort of dark so went home.   Weird.  I've been on those humps a bunch of times this year, and suddenly I get company.   And, even though it is a pretty big area they gravitated to where I was.  I'll be out today too, so if you need help with supervision, let me know.    But I will drive by to check out the new construction.

      Been getting a few on the weed line, early am when there's a little breeze, since the surface temps started coming down. That was about this month's full moon, for me. A very slow troll, fishing vertically, & just a 1/16 oz. jig.
