      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 .

River Pro Boat in Sartell

Recommended Posts

Royce Aardahl

I was fishing by the dam on saturday and was wondering who was in the River Pro catching cats. I was in a Fischer boat.

I have seen alot of people down there over the past couple weeks. Its really frustrating knowing many of them are targeting walleyes because they admitted it to me. I have tried calling TIP but in 3 calls now, they have yet to respond once. The River Pro boater might have been Dave Genz i have seen him down there from time to time. Hopefully catfish is all you are targeting too eyeguy

actually we are after crappies.. we've been able to catch a few real dandy fish but the walleye and smallies and rock bass and catfish and northerns bite too. i was out again today and the river is way down. not going back till it rains good. I wouldn't get too excited about the kids down there catching and releasing a few walleyes. most likely small males. there's a gazillion of them.

Crappies, that is awesome. The river is down a ton for this time of the year. And yea from what these kids have been telling me at school the people down there are catching alot of big females, they caught a few 5-7 lbs. And that just seems like it could be harmful. Good luck opener, maybe i will cya around. I am planning on hittin up the river, not a big fan of huge crowds.

I was down at the Sartell dam and saw the big Jonboat and, I'm hunchin your boat. I agree probably the jon was Dave Genz.

You were located over toward to corner of the papermill I'm hunchin.

I believe you were in a v-hull. What size motor do you have? short shaft? Do you launch at the Sauk Rapids park on the east side of the river?

How difficult navigating the shallows?
thanks

it was a different guy. last saturday there were 2 river pros out. last night 2 guys in a beavertail boat were trying the river. neat lookin set up. the river is close to the low it was at last year. I have a 20 horse mercury jet that works very nice. rock city right now, many bolders showing and some just below the surface. last night I put in at wilson park and went all the way up to the dam. kinda crazy under the sauk rapids bridge!!

Hey EyeGuy,
How do you like your river Pro?
What model do you have?
Can you give me the Good the Bad and any changes you would like to see.
I just got off the phone with Kevin at River Pro and have interest in finding one. Have not seen it in the flesh and looking for feedback.
You can reply here -Thanks

The boat I have is not a river pro. I have a fisher 16 foot jon boat with a 20 horse mercury jet outboard. We found this set up for 4100.

Thats incredible eyeguy. I wish I had a setup like yourself. What does a 20 horse jet like that run these days?

Hey eyeguy

So that was you.It was good to meet you last saturday.I was in the River Pro that was there most of the day.Talked with you a little at the access.Didn't even know you were an FMer.By the way your anchor is still tied to the dam! I left one up there today too! smile.gifThe water is getting LOW.We launched at the same park as last week and knocked a few rocks on take off.Put a few scratches in the bottom but no dents!First scratches on my new boat. frown.gif I looked at the USGS water level site and it looked as though the water had only dropped a couple inches but when I got up there today it looked more like 6 inches.Not a lot of water in that river now.Maybee I will run into you again.

Heywood.
If you want to see a RP and get a ride let me know.I would be more than happy to give you a ride.
You should have baught my last boat.It was gently broke in and a steal. smile.gif

      Was hoping to come up with a 1/2 ton and a 16ft wheel house Dec. 1st.  Any thoughts if the ice will be think enough to go out of Hillmens?

      Took a drive around Lake Osakis earlier. It appears the cold and calm winds we had last night made a lot of ice. From what I could tell it appeared the lake was locked up except there was a small open area in Manthey's Bay that had a couple trumpeter swans swimming around and another small area in front of Holiday Resort that had some ducks swimming around. The rest was all ice, thin ice. Don't know if it will hold up over the next 5 days. High of 38 tomorrow, 46 and showers on Friday with high winds, 36 Saturday, 44 Sunday and 44 Monday. The lows over night aren't going to dip very low. If it was a few inches thick I wouldn't be to concerned, but as thin as it is, could be bad.

      Not by itself it won't but they raised the price on licenses for everything. Once you add it all up I'll bet you never got that big of a raise at your job. I paid for an ATV license since they first came out and we didn't get squat for it for over 20 years. What a joke, not to mention debacles like Mille Lacs Lake management. AAARRGGHHH!!  I gotta quit now before I pop a vein.

      Thanks for the updates.  Think I will play it safe and wait until Thursday, November 30 to go out from McKinley Park.

      7" of good clear ice in the couple holes I drilled in Pike Bay this morning.   
    • cookie129
      not sure why its not showing I'm posting? Anyway walking out on the south shore gets you in deeper water quicker. Yes they do bite on red lake during the dark. I hardly ever go on the lake early ice unless Buddy Hillmen needs my help. Once I drive on the lake with blue thunder I will be on her just about everyday un  tell mid march if mother nature cooperates.

      Can anyone recommend a place nearby the Metro Area where a person can take their air rifle to sight in the scope since you cannot shoot them in city limits.  Plus, probably not smart to just pull up to a random field to sight in, either.  Thanks!!
    • bbfenatic
      Went out early Sunday on smaller lake before the Vikes game...5" of good ice and it was growling so making more before it warmed up. Caught a bunch...pic of the dozen crappies we kept...but it was fast and furious from 7-9am
    • ozzie
      Happy thanksgiving Cookie to you and your family!!!  Glad to see you made it through the summer and are getting ready for the long winter on such a Grand Lake!
    • cookie129
      well we finally got our home computer back so it sure is nice to be able to type again instead of using the phone.
      The wind were wicked Monday night but by the looks of it this side of the lake held together so that's real good news.
      Lonnie and his buddy braved the winds yesterday and headed out ,they managed to get 7 of there 8 but it was a tougher bite then last time they were here on Saturday.
      This weekend is going to be crazy up here as I have had quite a few inquirers about lodging on shore. Buddy Hillmen may have something but he is tough to get a hold of as he is busy building that mammoth house.
      We ran into a hiccup on blue thunder and have a part we can not get off to replace. I'm hoping Tom can come over and button it up. as Devon worked his butt off to get er done. You could see the disappointment in his eyes, Blue thunder is my work horse and I'm feeling the pressure of getting her up and running..
      Our new used lake truck may show up sunday if all goes well. Its name is Cheyanne "I think that's spelled right. It blew a radiator in fargo and is arriving on a trailer .
      Old Minnesota is the only house that I have not detailed as I also had some major work on her that was ignored while I was trying to break 80 at the golf course this summer. Every one have a great thanksgiving and if your coming up here make sure you check in the resort your going out of as they have been on the ice everyday
