      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 had 6 other hits, but all those were dinks too.

Unbelieveable.I'm at a loss. It just can't be.....

Yowzer do I like senkos! Eric to say it was an awesome day fishing with you would be an understatement! It had to be one of the best days ever for me. And a bonus 9.5 snake for you for frosting on the cake. My 2 biggest were 18 and Erics were 18 and 19.25. Yowzer!!!!!!!!

BLB, the fishing was awesome near Monticello. Buzzbaits, Spinnerbaits and of course, Senko's were the ticket. I lost count, but I would guess we were in the 30-40 range. We fished from 2pm until 6pm.

Unfortunately the river is lower than ever and I don't think I'm going to try to navigate some of these areas again until the River goes up some. We were stuck half the day. Banging up the boat quite a bit.

Smallie, I feel your pain. I used to have a modified V-Hull, now it's a modified modified Semi V-Hull.

frown.gif All these pics and reports are making me drool! They need a smallie face thing with drool coming out! LOL.

Man, Eyeguy is mopping us all up with his smallie pics! Again, I'm missing out on the great action from Monti up to Sartell/Sauk Rapids! Hopefully that actions stays hot around Monti for this coming weekend's event.

Great catches everyone (except BigLakeBa$$ - LOL! j/teasing BLB)! I hope to have some pics of my own sometime soon. wink.gif

Oh man, now my cronies are on my case.
My counseling sessions are gonna need to be more frequent in order to get out of this hole. wink.gif
I need to redeem myself on the river ASAP. I can't finish off the fishing season on a note like that.
Hunting season is awfully close and focus will be diverted heavily.

BM
Did you go out or what? Or are you hiding behind a poor report too??? LOL

Wow, BLB firing back...LOL. You gotta love that guy tongue.gif LOL!

No reports for me. I took my youth group kids canoeing up on the 'Croix (Taylors Falls down to Osceola) on Saturday. I brought the rod along with a mini tackle box but only managed a handful of casts and about 4.5hrs of paddling! LOL! Everytime we stopped on an island to grab a snack from the cooler, I would make some casts, but nada. I didn't expect much, but was able to scout out some decent spots!

This Saturday you're missing out! Who needs a deer stand when you can have the smallie magnet bragging rights to keep you all warm and fuzzy all winter long... LOL.

I caught pocket bass on the Rum and missed a nice pike. I did catch a small walleye though. Nice treat, and released per usual.

      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

      That's correct.  For now.

      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!
