      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 .

6/28/02 Walleyes!

Recommended Posts

Fished with Turk on 6/28. Weather was hot, but the bite was hotter. Several nice walleyes including a personal best of 25" for me. Turk was dialed in that day. Not a single rough fish. all walleyes and sauger. Great day on the 'Croix.

Steveo,

Nice job landing that fish, they always look enormous in the water! I can't take credit for not catching any rough fish, sheepers, etc. they just were not were I was fishing... ha, but an all walleye and sauger day is ok with me.

The water is dropping slowly and I think the good bite should continue despite the hot Hot weather...
Good Luck
Turk

Hey guys,

New to fish'n the St. Croix. I'm thinking of heading out tonight to try down by Stillwater/Hudson area. Are you having any luck with the eyes in this part of the river?! If so, where would a good spot to launch the boat?

Thanks

I always launch out of Lakefront Park in Hudson. There's also Beanie's on the Minny side. I'm a resident so it only costs me 3 bucks. non residents is 6 or 7 I believe.
Stillwater has a public launch north of the city. don't know much about that one.

Did you launch up by the boomsite?

I have only fished the river a few times in the summer, where is the best place to launch? What do the Wisc. areas charge for launching? I paid $7 at Prescott earlier, and don't have anything to compare it too. I'm looking ot launch betwen Afton and N Hudson somewhere. Thanks

Dr. T.,

The best place in my opinion, to launch in terms of price and wait time is the landing at St. Croix Bluffs regional park, which is on the Minnesota side between Kinni and Prescott. I don't launch there as Beanies is closer for me. But if you are from southern metro area it's the place to go. Annual price is 20 dollars or so.

Stillwater Boomsite has a Public DNR free access, but the lines and parking can be long and limited.

Hudson City launch, Prescott city, Beanies, and Bayport's Boat house are all about a wash in terms of price, and are likely chosen because of the nearby fishing areas... i.e. it makes little sense to launch in Hudson if you plan on fishing Prescott area, Naturally.

Hope this helps.

Managed to pick up three eyes and a sauger last night on the Croix. Now that I know where to go I won't have to drive an hour down river to catch them. The fish were from 14-16 inches. Wished I could have stayed later but like I said I had a long ride back to the launch.

      Why do you think I come here everyday?  It's better then poking your eye with a sharp stick or slitting your wrists!

      I don't see any serious cold snaps in the next 2 weeks so its likely open water will still be in play for those brave enough to try it.

      Now is tough time. I was watching bays ice over a week ago and they are wide open again this week. Could be ice fishing in 10 days, could be ice fishing in a month. Who knows? I have a work trip to North Dakota in 2 weeks and I've been clinging to the hope they might be iced over so I can fish a little afterhours. Probably a longshot. I've already spooled the reels, cleaned and organized the gear, charged the batteries. Trying not to fishing-shop myself into financial woe. Even tried to celebrate open water by wading in neoprene waders and trying to find some sunfish on wetflies. No dice. Ugh.

      Miltona is wide open, there will be quite a few boats out there this weekend. Most lakes south of Miltona are fishable by boat.

      Can the DNR or who ever reported this, never use this word again "presumptive" when dealing with Wildlife disease results again! It can be better used as, "We are awaiting the presumptive proof of Al Franken touching a boob." But not about Wildlife issues!

      It's all open...it's ready to go..But we won't see any big time cold for awhile..Still in better position then last year. I was open water fishing the first weekend of shotgun in a t-shirt last year. We'll be alright.

      Be careful in Vineland bay, even though the river runs out there, there is still some current. It's very sandy there. Find vegetation along a drop off and you'll find pike. If you are going on foot you can walk out of the East access at Father Hennepin and hit a drop off pretty close to shore. Let us know how you do!

      Interesting on the common merganser. I want to go but I'm not sure either. I was hopeful our go to lake would be open. It is but locked up tight with ice from the landing (in a sheltered bay) several hundred feet out to the more open part of the lake. Haven't seen anything on it either. Our lake is wide open and bait shop owner says he remembers terrific late season hunting on the channel full of cattails into the neighboring lake,  and I've seen birds flying by, but will have to monitor the weather. Not launching the boat if its in the 20s and gale force winds. If it was warmer and a light wind, why the heck not? My wife is also saying no, don't go. We have a lot to do this weekend. I'm like, I would go right on our lake and likely be done and in the house by 9:30 Saturday morning. I would doubt you'll be up by then. lol.
