      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 .

Got the **** scared right outta me!

Wow, after fishing tonight I was walking back on the RR tracks. I know how quiet trains can be co I was looking back about every 20 seconds cuz there was a curve about 100 yards behind me. About the 5th time I turned to check the train light was very close! I hit the ditch and in 5 seconds it was even with me. Yowzer did my heart skip a beat! I walk to the side a bit off the tracks but it's still a rush!! Now the report. What a night. Got to the water at 6:30 and got 3 by 7. The next 45 minutes I landed 21 more fish with 3, 18's and 1 at 19. Then it totally shut off. I hit 3 holes. At about 8:10 wham!! something big was ripping out the line. I figure musky for sure. Well I tightened up the drag so it couldn't pull any more after 3 dandy runs and finally was making headway. Getting dark so still couldn't tell when it rolled a couple times. Finally got it to shore. 33 inch fat carp!!! Got it in the mouth, I guess they like senkos too. That thing must have been at least 20 pounds! Maybe 25. What a night!!

Shouldn't it be smallieguy54 or deerguy54?

Imitation Senkos was the ticket. I think my mepps would work ok also but this worm stuff is more fun. I tried 4 colors and they all worked.

Eyeguy - you are lucky you didn't get nailed! That would freak me out too! Whatcha doin on Saturday? HT, BLB, Ebass, Me and maybe some others are going to be up on Monti. We're launching out of Montissippi on Sat. at 6:45am. EB & me are doing a float trip (not sure if we are going to pull out at Ellison or Kadler just yet).

Senko/stik baits are great! Just imagine - you didn't know what they were a month ago! We should have never let the secret out! LOL. As for color, it seems that the river smallies don't seem to care what color they are - although I tend to go with either natural colors or really bright colors... both work great!

I got all of my magic stiks & jacks worms (along with a bunch of other stuff) from TJ Tackle and I'm looking to nail the smallies (HT & BLB don't stand a chance wink.gif).

Thanks for the invite but I have a honey do list and a couple of tree stands to put up. If there's any extra time I hope to get out to wet a line with my son. I just got done working and it's time to hit the river again. I see it was up about 8 inches from a week and a half ago. Kinda nice.

Thanks for sharing your report,. How about sharing what was the ticket technique and presentation etc?

I am envious of the smally waters up North.
Now, I don't have it all that bad down my way.
INcluding all of the new lakes I fish each year I hope to add more smally rivers!

Thanks again!

Keep the rods bendin'!!!

      Can anyone report on fishing on Rainy River this week?
    • Tony S
      Headed up this weekend for the first trip of the fall.  Thinking about fishing the lake with all the good reports from there, but has anybody been up to Clementson, Frontier or Birchdale  areas recently that could give a report?  Thanks.

      VG, Good bite most days now! All minnows for me. jigs or lindys. Chubs, shiners, and pike suckers. Found walleyes from 8' to 40' yesterday. Cliff

      Thanks for chiming in and sharing how the river has been treating you lately. They sure are fun to catch. I am hoping to get out again this weekend for some more smallie action. Hopefully they are still near where I was able to find them last weekend....

      I fish pretty much exclusively above the Sartell dam.  I normally try to hit it 2-3 times per week.  Over the last 3 weeks, I thought the fishing was down right ridiculous(even with the crazy high water) at times, 12-20 fish in a hour or two before sunset.  I found them right up on the bank, and of course in slower moving water.  There are a few spots north of the dam that are great places for high water.  Some larger areas where the water can swirl around and create backwash.  In fact, I'll point my boat down right and put spot lock on, because the water is flowing back up river, and just cast parallel with the bank.  Most of the time I'll throw a Scatter rap, then when I see a fish chasing bait, I'll throw out a wacky rig.   I went out last weekend to a spot I've been hitting, and the fish have diminished big time.  Caught 6 in a couple hours.  Then I went out last night, and caught one walleye.   So, with that in mind I figured they had to of gone to the deeper rock piles.  And, sure enough, I caught 2 just before sunset, then I headed in.   If you have SI, just drive down or up river and look for large groups of rock piles.  Go up river from them, and try and do a controlled drift over the rocks.  I normally use a jig and a tube.  And there's no mistaken them when they hit.   Even a few eyes mixed in every once in a while.
