      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 .

Just got back from the Guelph area. Birds were plentiful and easy Fri. and Sat. Still plentiful but not so easy after. Birds seemed like they have been pressured real hard. Saw our most mature birds on the northern part of our hunting area about 10 miles north of Guelph. Lots of pheasants if you can get at them. Most of the crops are still in. Walked one of the smaller corn fields (still a half mile each way) and kicked out hundreds of birds. Can't wait to get back after the crops are out. Pheasants were cackling constantly in the field right next to our shack but who's got the energy to walk a mile long corn field after pounding ducks all morning. Sure do love it up there. Dog just wants to go to bed.

Hey Lundexplorer, same model of boat I have smile.gifWe are heading back to Seston S.D this Thursday afternoon.Did pretty good there on opener, did find a few other hunters on our so called private property that no one else was to hunt.Guess the farmer forgot we were comming, oh well plenty of room any way.
We plan on hitting the slew in the early morning then after some cacklers at the start of opener there this weekend.
We had a lot of water in our area, but it was drying up fast, and if the temps hit the 20's like they say, we could be bustin ice to get out there.
Good luck,Benny

You'll find alot of dried up potholes, but the bigger slews will still hold water... and should have LOTS of ducks! Have fun!!!

If you can't find much water... try going north a couple hours.

JA!

Hunted South Central N. Dakota Sat through Monday.

Shallow smaller wetlands are dry, but most of the bigger deeper wetlands are just down a bit.
Saturday - Very stiff NW wind. Set up on a smaller pond and shot near a limit (for 4 people) of Gadwall, Widgeon, with a few teal and mallards mixed in.
Sunday - Smaller ponds had ice on them, enough that the lab could walk on it near shore. We set up in the field and had flock after flock of mallards coming in to the dekes. The small ponds opened up quickly at first light, but the the widgeon, teal and gadwalls appeared to have left (for the most part). Shot near a limit (for the two of us) mallards and two geese (one MONSTER goose) that came into the dekes... should've had all three, but didn't know it was three daily per person in the Central flyway.
Monday - Set up in the field again, but the ponds didn't refreeze that night. We had a weather report of light south winds till mid afternoon and them stiff northwest winds... By 8:30 the wind was 25 mph gusting to 40+ out of the NW. Nothing wanted to land on the top of a plowed field. Picked up a few mallards and gadwall...
The best advice I can give you is leave your options open, and check a smaller pond before you set up in the morning. If the pond has any ice, set up in a field near bigger water, if it is open (almost completely) then set up in the water.

I'll be back up there in a week and a half... I can't wait...

It's all theory till you hit the field.

Just got back from Siseton.Man were there Gadwels and widgeon there.Lot's of cacklers(lesser canadas) as well.Saw a few buffy's,golden eyes,and still a few green,blue wing teal and woodies around.Most of them will be gone now after a 20 degree morning.
I saw a lot of Minnesota plates this trip, phesant opener for non resedents was this weekend so I figure that played into all the Minn. plates.
I will be looking for a partner next year as the crew I went with this year did way to much parting for me, I like to have a beer or three AFTER the hunt not while driving aroung pot hole jumping.Any one think they may be intrested in going next year, send a note and I will fill you in on the details such as cost,regulations,and times of year we would go.

      I think I'll give it a try today.  Looks like it could be windy, which can help a bit with the down river drift.   I might try to get out Sunday as well after the game.  But, I think it's time to start putting the summer toys away for the year.  Just not the boat yet.  Will keep that out for a another 2-3 weeks.  Will tell you how I do if I get out today.   Another thing I'll add.  I've fished above the SCSU dam a bit this time of year.  Always just went a bit north of the Wilson Park landing and pulled some cranks along the east banks.  Normally did pretty well. Would normally work all the way up past the Hospital.

            I was wondering if anybody that lives on the lake has Satellite Internet Service?  If you do I have a couple of questions-  Who is it through?  What does it cost for the applicable data plan you have?  Do you have any complaints, compliments, concerns about it.         I would like to sign up & do it but I don't want to regret having a 2 year commitment or similar & find out it is bad-horrible connection. Do you burn through the Data extremely fast?  We are up to the cabin almost every weekend April - October  & then every other through the winter so not being there enough isn't the issue just wanting to justify having it.

      Can anyone report on fishing on Rainy River this week?
    • Tony S
      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.

      Marcum keeps designing great new products...this is almost a must have for anyone with any Marcum unit. I ordered one for my LX-7, all the features plus a smaller/lighter battery that gives more hours in between charges.....swweeeet!
