      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 .

Having a hard time dealing with the fact that our fall fishing season was almost non exsistant or should I say much to fast and much to short. I for one just cant bring myself to the point of winterizing the boat just yet so I am going for one more blast this weekend probably one of the Brainerd area lakes.We have done real well the last month and I am sad to see another open water season comming to a close

No! I've got long johns,..chopper mits,..layers of fleece I haven't even put on yet,...hooded sweatshirts,...wool socks,...sorels,...you name it. I love hard H2O as much as the next guy/gal but that transition from first ice to travelable ice is kinda tough on me.I just don't deal with it very well,...ask my wife she'll tell you.
I have got to keep the open water season going until the serious snow and ice comes to stay. Then I bow out to jack frost and old man winter.But I still need a little more convincing. Please, just a little more sun?!-TROY

I just heard the weatherman say that not this coming weekend, but the one after, temps could be in the 60's! Go for it guys - we already put our boat away. Guess I will have to settle for washing windows. UGH

I know what you mean but just because the weather is a little on the cold side doesn't mean its all over.The fish are still biting and I heard some one on this site say"there is no bad weather just bad clothing"or something like that.Put your winter clothes on and get out.Heck I never put the boat away.Its always ready to go!

WW, don't do it! don't put the boat away!

Last year when we had that early snowstorm I put away my boat thinking we were doomed to have an early winter. Well wouldnt you know it all melted and it was in the 50s the rest of the month!

This october has been nearly record cold, but you never know, november could be fantastic! I predict at least a month more open water fishin' to come.

Of course there WAS that rather large flock of snow geese that flew over us last weekend while fishing Big Birch. We all know where they come from right? It's a tad bit early to see them around these parts. Perhaps I should think about winterizing a few things myself,...hmmm.TROY

I'm afraid El Nino won't get here soon enough! Went out to Boulder with my good buddy today, awful wind out of the northwest, near white caps, big motor wouldn't work and the trolling motor would hardly keep up. Good thing the 8hp kicker came through. Air temp started out at 39, but soon dropped to 34. But the warmest water we found was 34.7 degrees! We think one minnow suffered a light strike. It saddens me, but I'm fearful that we can kiss 2002 open water fishing soon goodbye!

      Headed up this weekend for the first trip of the fall.  Thinking about fishing the lake with all the good reports from there, but has anybody been up to Clementson, Frontier or Birchdale  areas recently that could give a report?  Thanks.

      VG, Good bite most days now! All minnows for me. jigs or lindys. Chubs, shiners, and pike suckers. Found walleyes from 8' to 40' yesterday. Cliff

      Thanks for chiming in and sharing how the river has been treating you lately. They sure are fun to catch. I am hoping to get out again this weekend for some more smallie action. Hopefully they are still near where I was able to find them last weekend....

      I fish pretty much exclusively above the Sartell dam.  I normally try to hit it 2-3 times per week.  Over the last 3 weeks, I thought the fishing was down right ridiculous(even with the crazy high water) at times, 12-20 fish in a hour or two before sunset.  I found them right up on the bank, and of course in slower moving water.  There are a few spots north of the dam that are great places for high water.  Some larger areas where the water can swirl around and create backwash.  In fact, I'll point my boat down right and put spot lock on, because the water is flowing back up river, and just cast parallel with the bank.  Most of the time I'll throw a Scatter rap, then when I see a fish chasing bait, I'll throw out a wacky rig.   I went out last weekend to a spot I've been hitting, and the fish have diminished big time.  Caught 6 in a couple hours.  Then I went out last night, and caught one walleye.   So, with that in mind I figured they had to of gone to the deeper rock piles.  And, sure enough, I caught 2 just before sunset, then I headed in.   If you have SI, just drive down or up river and look for large groups of rock piles.  Go up river from them, and try and do a controlled drift over the rocks.  I normally use a jig and a tube.  And there's no mistaken them when they hit.   Even a few eyes mixed in every once in a while.

      Ditto. I switched to a 3 inch shell in #2 shot. I missed a few wood ducks this morning but got one teal. Not bad for the WMA I was hunting. 2 ducks would be great. 3-4 like you won the lottery. Saw plenty of action but it was fast moving wood ducks out of range. Geese never showed. And you can't shoot trumpeter swans! There were plenty of those. Let my boy sleep in this morning. Tomorrow we'll hit the more pressured lake. I saw at least one person setting up on it this morning on my drive to the WMA. The nice thing about that - when you're almost certain you'll be the only one there - is that you can roll in not long before shooting time if it doesn't take you long to set up.

      Hey Moose , sounds like some tough shooting as of late for you at those duckies . Just curious as to what choke you are using ?
