      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 .

Fished saturday by the 94 bridge and Catfish point. Ended up with four keepers (16-20inch)and one really nice crappie. Of course there were several smaller walleyes mixed in and the usual sheephead. Good luck to all

I was out on sunday for a couple of hours. got 2 nice pike, both 30 inches. seems like the high water is goofing up my pattern that has been working- we got a couple dozen smallies but not one walleye. might be the first time i have not gotten a walleye open water fishing the river. I can't wait till smallies open up- god they are fun to catch. man they tast good too! just kidding

Fished Saturday from the 94 bridge south to Afton state park. Caught at least 3 walleyes at each of our stops. They were in the trees normally on the shoreline on outside points everywhere we fished. Strangely enough, we found the most in the flooded city park just south of Afton boat docks. Used Hot-n-tot, crawdad color, dark jigs, blue over silver rapalas. Inside corners over rocks produced 2-3 lb Smallies using the same crank baits. We think that the 10+ walleyes and few sauger we caught (all released) were having a picnic since they were around the submerged picnic tables and barbecue grills!

Do they have the channel markers in yet around the Stillwater area? Haven't been able to make over there since the opener.

Has anyone been fishing around bayport, afton area. Went out last thursday for a couple hours and did o.k. Caught 15 walleye most small and 1 sheephead. Jig and fathead was working the best. Good Luck

I brought my father down to the Croix both Sunday and Monday and we couldn't seem to keep the fish off the hooks. We even tried mixing up our presentations to try to fool the fish but they seemed bound and determined to join us in the boat. We only caught 8 legal fish (all still swimming) but it's fun just to have something pull on the line. We even had the pleasure of doing battle with a little Musky just south of the Hudson bridge. Darn thing broke me off right next to the boat so if anyone catches a little 'sky with a firetiger huske jerk you'll know who it belonged to. As for presentations we started off trolling cranks with leadcore in 20-27 feet of water just south of the Hudson bridge. After getting beat to death by the pleasure boaters we moved down to the rocks between Hudson and Afton. That was the only place we were able to keep the fish out of the boat. Off to Catfish bar pulling lindy's with fatties, rainbows, and crawlers. Went home when we ran out of bait (Scoop and a half of minners and a dozen crawlers). On Monday we hit the river around 6pm and had equal success between Catfish bar and the Washington county park. I was glad that my father was able to experience what a great fishery the Croix has turned into before heading back to Florida on Tuesday.

      Did well this morning on big bay with gold spinners. 24-26 feet off the edge of a reef. Decided since they were biting we'd try the west end to see if we could catch some big fish. Put up a big zero out there. Guess they behave a bit different from end to end.  On a small reef out west had a guy pull up on us, throw a marker right on the fish and camp out right there. Kind of tough to fish spinners when someone does that. What is the etiquette on this lake when someone does that? Just fish where you want even if you run right up on them or in between them and the marker? I see the thousand dollar  depthfinder in the back of the boat, just mark a waypoint and keep the marker in the boat man. Really grinds my gears. Whoops...sorry for the rant   Never had that happen on the east end though

      Coming up next weekend to pull up the docks for the last time. Yup, my brother-in-laws folks sold their place on Frazer Bay. They owned the beautiful place just west of the public boat landing.They are in their 80's and are going to stay put at their place on Arizona. Been coming up for 20 years and now I won't have a free place to vacation at. Going to have to do some surfing for rentals I guess. Anyways, how has the walleye fishing been? Guess the weather will be quite a bit cooler next week.  Thanks for all the help over the years!

      Not at all a typical fall this year; more like a July lately. When the weather cools down next week fish will again start to set up in their cold weather locations. The last two weeks I have found fish (walleyes) along thick green cabbage and coontail edges,  deep basin transitions along steep breaks, and also suspended over deep water chasing forage.  One thing that remains constant during this time of year, regardless of temp., is that the days are getting shorter and the weeds are dying. Key in on the remaining green weeds, if your targeting shallow fish, and utilize your electronics to find schools of baitfish in deep water, either free roaming basins, or just off steep breaks. Lots of patterns going on right now that are putting fish in the boat. HAVE FUN!

        Fall is very nearby and things are going the way they should.  Fishing is good, it is too windy and the water is cooling down quickly.....On this weeks report and important bit on our very own Aquatic Invasive Species......Enjoy it!
