      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 .

Well people, we have just over a month until this years Trout Day, held in Beautiful Forestville/Mystery Cave State Park in SE MN.

<April 27th 9:00am to 3ish>

This years event will prove more educational, fun and of course a lot more and better door prizes!(Don't forget it's FREE)

If you are new to this event, check it out on the Tourney Events Forum or SE MN Forum.

It is for fisherman of all ages and level of experience.

Fly fishing seminars, Spin fishing seminars,
DNR Electro-fishing demonstrations, invertabrate samplings, fly tying demos and we even might have some on-going rod building as well!

Beyond the wonderful educational presentations, a highlight is the drawing for some wonderful door prizes!

This year so far we have Guide trips from, Mille Lacs, Lake Vermilion, Cuyuna Mine Pits,
SE MN Streams/Rivers(2) and the ST. Croix River.<other guide trip(s) yet to be named.

The Drake Motel in BlackDuck, Mn is donating a two night stay for two;

Jeff Beckwith from Scenic Tackle has offered to donate some Angel Eyes. ( JUst to let you know, the Angel Eye hasn't really been field tested in streams in Mn, what an opportunity to have gear that no one else has on the stream?? Gear that I am certain will drive those trout nuts!!!!!!

There will be other fishing gear, gift certificates from Gander Mountain, Magnum Sports, The Bait Box and other fine door prizes, waiting to be given away!!!!!

It is a day to get together, enjoying Spring, meeting and creating new friendships, to learn and share fishing information and the all important need to emphasize conservation and maintenance of SE MN's wonderful fisheries!!!!

Door Prize Update:

Mel Dickie has graciously offered to donate a rod again this year for Trout Day. If you ever have a desire for a high quality Custom Made Rod, check Mel out at Wild Goose Sports in Rochester,Mn.

Don't quote me here, but I do believe Frank from Redbarn Rods learned from Mel!

Thanks Mel!! Once again someone will be truly blessed with one of your fine works of art!!!

jimmy,

That applies to the daily or two day pass only. I wish we could get that good of a deal on the season pass, but they would really take a shot in the arm if they did that!

Oh no, no left over prizes for you! smile.gif

The weather should be a non-factor for attendence. Those that have said they would be there all along will be there. But you might not get the picnickers that hadn't heard about it, like last year.

And if the weather is alittle cool, what could be better than meeting some new people, learning some new things, in front of the fireplace at the pavillion, I think the one half of the building is even heated?

So fish early, come and warm up?, then head back out for the afternoon.

See ya there

I wish I could attend the 2nd Annual Trout Day. I wanted to go last year.....wanted to go this year....alas I can't swing it.

Everyone have a great time and enjoy the weather (I mean it!). My biggest trout have been caught in the middle of spring snow and/or slush storms.

Good luck and have fun!

      I noticed this spring that the higher end Shimano Stradic and others have eliminated the ability to back reel (no reverse) which I believe is a huge mistake, I don't like it!    any others have comments?

      Went up north grouse hunting it was fun. I must say having a dog makes it better.  This weekend is duck opener and I am jacked up for it.

      The public launch at The Landing on the west end stays open until the ice sets in, but they do pull the dock sometimes around the end of October / beginning of November.

      Just curious if people are finding fish moving into fall patterns yet or still finding them in more summer locations?  I've been finding good sized panfish in deeper water myself around more mid lake structure. Most of the lakes I've been on are still pretty green with algae and weeds.

      Captain Acorn, I use Gamagatu  octopus hooks. Size 4 for crawlers and size 2 for minnows. Red, black, chartreuse, and pink , mostly red and black. I use orange and green glow soft beads at times. (Worked today!) Cliff
