      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 .

Mr. Special, good to meet and fish with you today.I've met quite a few of the guys on this St. Croix forum down there this year.TRZ,Chris and Blacksportsman.All good guys.All serious about fishing.It was darn slow today for walleye and sauger.It seems I've done better when it's been cold.Anyhoo, I don't know my plans for the last days of the gamefish season.I've done just so-so at the open water for walleyes the last couple weeks.A few fish but alot of time too.I think because it's been pounded down there all year that alot of the fish that were there early have been picked off with a few passing through now and then.Probably as good as any other spot though.I had intentions of trying some spots south like near Afton where Bodyman went last year but my wife is a nurse and gets called in at a moments notice.I have to be reasonably close in case I have to take off so I'll be down in the Bayport-North Hudson area somewhere.Like to pick up a sauger or two.They're tasty.........Good Luck Fishing!!!

sinker hit it on the nose, 95% of the time the colder the better on the river in winter. nice warm days that are really nice usually are the slowest fishing days, even if it is a long warm snap with no significant pressure changes. i can't figure it out? i should be out fishing and removing my shack all day saturday stop by.

Mr. Special, you should have no problem driving on the ice itself.The only problem is getting on and off the ice.I don't know about the Bayport side access but the one in North Hudson is getting pretty rough and it won't take much more melting before it's unusable because of the water between the shore and ice.I'm going to start out on saturday down on the south end near TRZ'S shack.Probably fish there until noon and possibly go up to the open water if I don't see a small city of shacks up there through my binoculars.If I don't see you,Good Luck and let us know how you did.Take it easy.

I will be out there in front of the Bayport park this morning. I will have my ATV and plan to fish outside today and be more portable if any of you FMer's are out, stop and say hi. I have a green polaris with an auger rack on the front and there will be two of us. Good luck!

Hunt4food, quite a circus down there this morning,huh? I couldn't believe the size of some of the groups out there.I was down by Chris and TRZ's shack at first and then we moved up to the power plant.Pretty slow.Released a couple smaller walleyes in the morning.Them guys latched into a few sturgeon.Then they went back to the shack.After they left,I was the only one at the open water the rest of the day.Couldn't believe it.In the evening I did manage a 15" walleye and an 11" crappie.Both on a fathead with a red hook.Saw Mr. Special and his buddy today too.Well gamefish is over but with any luck the ice will hold for a while for some crappies.Take care.

It was a slow morning on saturday. Great to meet you TRZ and CRUZ. I hook up with one 11"crappie at 8:00 a.m. but that was it. Hopefully with the cold weather we can all get together and chase some of those big slabs.

Good luck

      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.
