      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 .

Fishing under the 101 bridge

Recommended Posts

Stopped and tried to fish right under the 101 bridge. There is about 12-14 feet on both sides of the bridge. I fished the North side for about 30 minutes with a fathead on the bottom and no dice. If I remember correctly I should have tried south side I think it's a little deeper. No one else fishing but it appears to be a convenient spot to meet to get your drugs. While I was there I saw 3 cars come down there and meet with one guy in a silver honda. They would walk under the bridge for a couple of minutes and then they would go back to their cars. I am fishing! These people need to understand you cannot mess with my fishing. Mr. Drugdealer I was the guy that told you last night to get the #&*2 out of there. I was also the guy that called the police on you. You should have left when I told you to leave. I was the guy that waved to you while you were being searched. Enjoy the holiday season behind bars and never mess with my fishing!

Nice work Erik! I wish I could see the same action taken with some of the fish & game violators out there. I have called the TIP hotline a few times, but have never had the satisfaction of watching them get busted. It would be a good feeling. Vern

Yes Erik very nice work!
Yes Vern! I agree 100% Obviously all areas are important,but for me its especially the restricted section of the Miss up here. It just makes my blood boil to think of anyone keeping any of those protected smallies. If I ever see anyone keeping a slot fish I dont think I could control myself, I would have to personally hold them down untill the C.O arrived!

It sort of scares me to read your questions about the smallies and river up here that you have posted and then read your recipe post were you say
"fillet any broadbacked panfish-- rockbass, smallmouth whatever"
Do you actually eat smallmouth? If so what are you going to eat? the protected slot is 12 to 20 inches thats pretty much everything you are going to catch.

I didn't start fishing the rivers until after smallmouth season closed, so of course I didn't keep any. I am also aware of the slot. The recipe was about getting finicky little kids to eat freshwater fish.

Erikwells nice story, I think that I will forward it to the people who are saying fisherman don't contribute much to the enviroment and society.
Is the fishing around there still worth trying? I am thinking of trying it prior to going to the pond.

ALPHID,
The river is always worth a try this time of year. I have has a little success and would probably do much better if I was able to put in some more time. I have been unable to fish for long periods of time due to my wife starting her 9th month of pregnancy. Too much stuff to do before the birthdate. So I have been limited to 1 or two spots when I sneak out for an hour.

      I just purchased the Humminbird Autochart Pro to use wth my Humminbird 999. After going through the 'installation guide' and the 'get started guide' that's included in the Autochart PC program, I can't find what I need to do to get this on my model Humminbird. Anyone have experience? Thanks, Paul

      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!
