      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 .

St Croix canoe trip

Recommended Posts

Guest

Well... my g/f is tired of me being gone every weekend since opener, and I promised her that this weekend we'd do something 'together'. I offered the suggestion of renting a conoe on the 'Croix for a day... and she's all for it. Plus... I can get some fishing in that way (hehe)!
My question is... any good recommendations as for a place to go out of (renting the canoe, etc)? Also, I'll be prepared for smallies... any tips on what to bring? What about 'eyes and saugers?

Thanks guys for and and all info!

I think the best bet would be to rent one in Taylors falls. I am not sure how far South they let you go before they pick you up. I have never done that. The Smallmouth were really biting well on saturday. You may have read my post on a topic below this one. Walleyes and Sauger are also abundant from Taylors falls and South. I think they pick you up in Osceola. You will have a good trip if the weather cooperates a little bit!

Fishn, you can get a canoe in Taylors Falls and get a ride back at William O'Brien State Park, or Marine on the St. Croix rents canoes as well and is not at far north, and has lots of Walley, Smallmouth, and White bass around the state park. My wife and I fished it Sat and Sun, and boated over 60 fish. Brought home 11 eyes 15 to 20 inches.

Fishnchester, 1/2 to 5/8 jigs, dark in the am and bright in the afternoon tipped with fatheads work well around 7 to 10 feet at breakpoints. We did well casting wing dams with ratlin raps. All of our eyes came out of 10 feet or less water. If is is warm the smalls are very shallow and everywhere. William O'Brien has a nice rock wall about 1/2 mile long that is great for smallies.

Thanks for the info guys! Looks like we're gonna rent out of Taylors Falls and go from there.

AllWet -- What did you get the 'eyes on? I'm not familiar with the Croix up north... any tips would be great.

      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.

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

      Has anyone ever stored with Oak Narrows Storage before? Need a spot to put a Polaris Ranger for the winter and thinking of calling them for a space, does anyone have any experience or feedback? Any other recommendations would be welcome. Need a 10x10 or 10x12 space likely.
      Thanks!

      the rum is back in its banks so bet the fishing is amazing? Anyone out trying? Where are all of you? I know it’s busy time but let us know what you are chasing.

      I need to slow down and focus on shooting 
    • MinnowBuckets

      Tamarack Island Wilderness Lodge is pretty accommodating. Grassy Narrows Lodge is one of the nicer lodges in my opinion on the Canadian Southern portion. We made a point of stopping at a bunch of locations last year and this is good sized and really nice. At this point it would be my preferred Lodge on that portion of the lake. Both of these are boat into and on an island. Ryan
