      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 .

I fished there Saturday with Sucka and again on Monday with my brother in law. The walleyes and sauger were hitting in 23 to 28 feet of water on jig and minnow on edges of the bars. If you launch at St Croix bluffs you know where there is such a spot. That's where we caught most of them. The bite was good from 7 to 10 am then slowed and was nonexistent by noon. Don't know about the evening bite, we went home by 2pm both days. I'll be there again tomorrow morning at 6:30 in a blue Sylvan Backtroller; if you see us, swing by and say hi.

All in all labor day was a great weekend. Boated multiple walleye and sauger, a few sheephead, a rock bass, a small mouth bass, a nice sunny, a FAT 12" crappie, and 3 channel cats.

Choper,

There a few muskies to be raised up from the depth north of Stillwater (i.e. north of Osceola). Depending on the water levels, it makes a difference on their whereabouts. I wouldn't necessarily call it a great muskie fishery yet....

Will be fishing it for muskies later this month hopefully. Hope to get you some more detailed information.

Gem Eye guy,

Your account of when the fish bit, was right on for the way this year has shaped up, especially in the last two months! Unless you've got rain, wind, or overcast it's been tough near the noon time hour - Usually though, as most of you know, that's prime time!!! The water has been up three feet from normal all summer long, so that is what I feebily attribute it to...anyway gang, If I may, my advice until the water gets in the low 60's is pick lowlight times or classic walleye chop scenarios for success...
I can't wait for coldwater vertical jigging on the sippi....

Keep cathcin'

Chopper,

Welcome.

If you are willing to travel to St. Croix Falls to fish the St.Croix, I can tell you there is a fairly good population of muskies on that stretch. I've caught a good number of them bass fishing. And, every single one of them (big and small) has come off a tree hanging in the water. So, I imagine traditional musky presentations would be challenging (unless you're good at flipping a Suick). I suppose jig-n-pig or a jig-n-lizard (proceeded by a handwrapped leader) would be a good way to go.

It's worth trying. I've caught and seen quite a few fish.

      Thanks for the update cigarguy- were you lindy rigging?
    • CigarGuy
      Neighbor and I went out in Wakemup for a couple hours tonight and got a 18" and 19" and had a nice one come unbutton on the way in....Leaches and crawlers.  That's good for me!  20 - 34' off a break line.  Del, working on the last flight of the steps-was looking for you to stop by and help!

      I used lead core on Friday and had a ball catching walleyes of all sizes.  I started in the morning and stayed out until I just got tired in the afternoon.  I probably pulled in as many as 20 or so.  My formula was:  90 feet of line, 19-24 ft of water, #5 rattling split deep shad rap.  Silver color.  I kept it right at 2mph.  I also did much better when I pumped the rod in a regular cadence.  Keeping it in the rod holder didn't produce near the fish.

      Ace, I hope you enjoy your retirement.  I hired you one time and my boy and I had a good time.  I appreciate the hard work you did on putting us on fish.  Good Luck and maybe "Little Ace" can continue the family business some day!   Michael Theis

      Trolling or casting jigs and spinners(silver or gold are best for pike IMO) near the weeds, in bays, etc, cranks, and top water buzz baits around weedy areas are how I get most of my pike. Use a leader. Orange jig heads with a sparkly yellow twister tail and a jumbo leech gets me more pike than any other method. Your mileage may vary.

      I had lunch there a couple of days ago. Great service and good food! I did not see any illegal type aliens there at that time!  Cliff
