      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 .

Did anyone see the rough fish netting in prescott yesterday? My friend saw it and took alot of pictures. It is amazing the amount of carp and buffalo they got. they also netted and released many walleye the biggest I heard was 12 pounds. Also several muskies.

School lunch fish sticks.

Yum.

Hey, just be glad someone is taking them out of the river before they can spawn this year. A few less rough fish never hurts a fishery.

I just hope they did not find any of those Asian carp!

McDonald's is the largest purchaser of carp in the United States. That's a fact.

I was lucky enough a few years back to drive by the river near Prescott as it was being netted. I stopped and talked to the guys sorting the fish. There a couple of tankers there also. They told me that the rough fish were being transported to New York. I didn't see many game fish as they were sorting through them. A asked one of the guys if they label the filets as walleye and charge the New Yorker's 10 bucks a pound and he just giggled. I never did get an answer form him. It was a neat experience as the net was being drawn toward shore. Lots and lots of bottom feeders fighting to get out. Somebody's eatin' good in the Big Apple.

      What did you and Wanderer find for ice thicknesses at the lakes you were on?
    • Rick G
      Sorry for no more live updates. Got too busy fishing...lol Pretty decent morning bite, slow afternoon, followed up by a very good evening bite. Plenty of noce fish caught if you worked for them.

      fun day for sure.   good to see those that popped up. get that eye pic up rick! Thx Moose for starting us out in a good area and for lining it up.

      Looks like you had a better bite than I did. I really didn’t expect all my gear to be that bad hand pulling out.  Big time failure on my part to not bring my wheeler.  I have too much of a spearing Jones to have left it all back at the truck. I brought a few gills, a seed, a crappie and a 25 inch walleye home.  Biggest gill went 8.  I went through a half dozen heavy pike suckers on the tip up but never dropped the spear.  Only saw one 20 incher that never really got in the hole.  The walleye inhaled the sucker and got the hooks in the throat. Glad you guys got some nice ones!
