      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 .

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

      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

For us the only thing that was working leadcore with cranks 18-24fow looks of eaters but not one over 18" couldn't get the digging raps rigs or jog and minnow to go but I'm sure it's not far off caught about half of mine on cranks when I was turning and didn't seem to matter weather the pole was on the inside or outside 2.2 2.4 was our speed flicker shads and deep runner raps #5 and 7. Cliff what style and size of hook do u use for your minnow rigs? Any beads used?

      We did well today from 1-4pm on an underwater point. Finally found some fish in a semi-sheltered area. Last few days have been tough to control the small light boat with all the wind. Most caught on pink jigs in 21-30ft.  Cliff I did try the circle hook lindy today with the big minnow and nailed the first bite I had. Next 2 bites grabbed it hard but dropped it. Work in progress!
