      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 .

Fishing Report

09/04/02 The St. Croix River walleye bite has improved and the bite is getting good. Productive depths are still 18’ to 24’ feet on breaklines, and the fish are hitting most baits from livebait – nightcrawlers either rigged or on a spinner and to crankbaits. Nightcrawlers have been in great favor almost out of season but, if they want them, feed them. Larger minnow imitator baits are becoming favored by the fish as well as larger shad style bodies. Shad clouds are very prevalent and often riding lower in the water column and often near bottom, which keeps the walleyes near by. Larger fish are hitting well with 23 to 24”ers coming in much more readily.
River level 677.4 feet above sea level, and water temperature 71.

Rick,

I have done next to nill castfishing this year, as my customer love the state fish. So I have to go off of expert anglers that I have come to know. They have all considered this a slow St. Croix flathead year....so far, and you now there are always exceptions but yes generally slow. The channel cat is a much more common fish to tangle with and is more apt to bite (or find). Many cat anglers including myself love late season flathead fish and find it the best, as with all game fish.

Keep catchin'
