      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 do believe this is the one.
The Metro Area Lakes and Rivers may be helpful, but I think this one would be more specific to that area.

Calvinist....I live about an arrow shot from the Mississippi where you are talking about. If you have some specific questions, maybe I can help?

I want an alternative to lake fishing that is fairly close to where I live; looking specifically for walleyes, but also smallies, and good-sized panfish. Keep in mind I am pretty much a rookie when it comes to river fishing. On August 9th I will be launching in Elk River and floating down in my 16' boat for smallie action and whatever else that is biting. I realize I have to really watch it so I don't hit bottom with the boat. Grebe and Ebass, if you have any suggestions, but don't want to "advertise", please contact me at

Thanks,

If you are drifting down from Elk River, I assume you are having another vehicle at the Dayton Landing or were you planning to return to Elk River? The reason I ask is that there are two really shallow riffle areas between Elk River and Dayton. Once you get below them, I don't think you can drive an outboard over them. (I couldn't last year)You could perhaps get out in the water and pull your boat back up stream.

BTW, those two riffle areas are really good Smallie spots. Just anchor down and fish 'em good.

Calvinist...if you are new to river fishing, you might want to reconsider a long float trip, your first time out on a new stretch of river! Maybe a trip up stream aways and a float back to get an idea on how to read the water, and a feel for the current, etc.

We used to trap quite a stretch of the river by canoe and a small 10 foot Jon Boat, we had a lot of experience on the river and even at that, we would rub once in awhile! That current is really deceptive...if you hurt your lower unit, or something happens to the motor your gonna have an adventure, no doubt!

The one just up stream from the Dayton landing was at 2 and 3 ft at the end of May when the river was a quite higher than it is now. If you do hit that stretch, once you hit, wading with the boat or just beaching it and fishing would be an option, but an iffy one!

      Went and tried a new spot... 3 snacky cats. One of them took my rod straight into the river and I had to dive in after it. Good times.
    • mrpike1973
      I use the Daiwa ct r also have 2 of them best out there in my opinion.
    • FishinCT
      Pretty good for me from Monday through Wednesday. Found them from 14-24ft depending on the spot but most fish came from under 20ft. Trust the electronics and motor around til you find a good school. They are hitting pretty well when you find them

      Best wishes for a happy retirement Ace.   I could never have done the guide thing even if I were a good enough fisherman.   It takes a special type of person to deal with all the different people... Congratulations on a job well done. 
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Terry, Sorry to hear that you have to retire after all of these years! I suppose It will be my turn to join you and Tommy before to many years also. See you on the water!! Cliff

      Congratulations on job well done sir. Your deserve time for yerself with Sandra an the whole younger crew. You have always been nice to me an a big help when I first seriously did the Muskie fish guide deal back summer 1996. We have had some fun times laughing online an in each other's boat over the years. Even boated a fish or three an coined a few major phrases still used in today's ever so silly online Muskie fish market.  Good stuff that I think only you n I could muster up and never take any of it seriously. Truely makes me smile clear to my middle all the junk we talked about an did. You are a good man Terry and welcome in my boat any time. Anytime. Ya done good and will not soon be forgotten. Thanks for being my friend on or off the water. The name fits as you really have been "The Ace"on our sweet Vermilion.   Still no fish round my docks but Bonnie, Polar Bear Boy an myself always have enjoyed your company. Yer the best in many ways my friend.  Thanks. Keep on Rocken!   Tommy.       PS.    I will continue to keep the Zombie Horde in check.    ; )

      I hope you enjoy your retirement!

      Keep the reports coming Curt, much appreciated.  Unfortunately, I'm not able to get back up there until September 22-25th., so it going to be tough keeping my mind on work and not LOW.  Are you just moving around in the basin until you mark a school of fish, and then jigging them?  I see all of your waypoints on the screen you showed, so those must be spots that have held fish at one time.

      Hey everybody, I have my last two guide trips on the 22nd and 23rd of August. A bad back and old age have taken their toll and I will retire from a job I have loved to do for the last 27 years.  I still enjoy it but unfortunately my body just can't take the pounding anymore. I'll still be out there fishing but no longer on a daily basis. I will miss all the regular clients I have had over the years and all the new people I have met that I can call my friends. Thanks to all of you that have shared the boat with me over the years, I hope you all had a good time. "Ace"   "It's just fishing man"
