      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 .

Has anybody been to LQP and did any good? I have tried to get over there but had to finish my fall chores around the house. Let me know if anything is going on. Fishhead, is the dam by Granite Falls the one east of the old NSP plant?
Thanks, Ode

Yes that is the one,along CR 40.I did not walk down to take a good look at it,but it looked good from the road.Any dam this time of year I would think would be pretty good.Have you fished it and did you do any good?
I did fish LQP last weekend,lots of little ones still.I did not have to play bumper boats though.at noon there were only2 boats out there.I think Dark 30 and I may head out there again this weekend.At least there is some action unlike near the cities right now.

I have heard things haven't got hot over at LQP yet. Sometimes it is quite late in the year before that happens. Yes I have fished that stretch of river by Granite. There used to be a resort down there called Pete's Point. There may be fishing down there yet, but I haven't been there in many years. I grew up in Sacred Heart, east of Granite. I hope to get up to LQP again. I have been fixing deer stands lately. The flood really raised hell with them. Have a great day!!!!!

Saw a lot of boats today at the Milan bridge while Dark and I were checking out the entire LQP area.We didn't bother to stop and see if they were getting any decent fish.Talked to a guy yesterday at the Marsh Lake dam who said they were still small.I think the rest of the area is a little slow.Got some fish at Marsh lake dam on friday,16 to 19" with a 24" in the mix.

Hi Ode
Yes we were fishing from shore.We thought about taking the boat up there but I thought if there were a few people there the daredevils would come out and start "accidentally" hitting the boat.I fished both sides over the two days that I went out there and noticed that if you want larger fish try the North east side(at the park)if you want more fish but eater size fish the other side.There were maybee a half dozen to a dozen people there on both sides.but it seems they come and go so if you stick it out a while you can get a decent spot.Also most fish were coming from the channels along both sides where the cemented in rocks end and along the spillway edge.All my fish came from my old faithful"yellow/orange jig with a 4"power grub and no bait",but I didn't do any better or worse than any one else using jigs.
If you head over there good luck and let us know how you do.

      10 day forecast doesn't show anything with low temps below 15 degrees.  It might make ice but it wont be making it necessarily fast.

      Thanksgiving would be nice...but first week of December still works!   Rogers on Red is already allowing wheelers and sleds...no side by sides yet.

      A 30-foot-tall white spruce, selected as the state’s official Christmas tree, was cut down today in the General C.C. Andrews State Forest, near Willow River.  The tree will be set up at the governor’s residence, 1006 Summit Ave., St. Paul, around 9 a.m., Monday, Nov. 20. The tree will be lit Monday, Nov. 27. DNR staff and the Conservation Corps of Minnesota cut the tree on the Friday before Thanksgiving each year from one of 59 state forests. However, the search for just the right tree begins months before. DNR foresters keep an eye out for a tall tree that’s nicely shaped and well filled out. It also needs to be in a location where it will not be damaged when dropped and then easily pulled out and loaded onto a trailer. Minnesota’s state forests provide clean air and water, recreational opportunities, wildlife habitat, timber and special forest products. This year, small businesses are making 150,000 wreaths with balsam boughs harvested from state forest lands. The estimated annual sales for Minnesota companies producing holiday wreaths exceed $23 million and Minnesota’s public lands support a large share of this economic activity. Each holiday season, half a million Christmas trees are harvested from private tree farms in Minnesota, contributing about $30 million to the state’s economy. For each tree harvested, one to three trees are planted. Real Christmas trees store carbon during their lifespan. They can be chipped for mulch when the season is over, making them an environmentally friendly choice.
      More information and details on viewing the tree is on the state Christmas tree page. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Looks like Big Bay is still open, so I don't think I'll be ice fishing Thanksgiving Day weekend.  I'm guessing the Big Bay will freeze this Sunday or Tuesday.  Lake should be walkable by December 2 when I plan to go up.

      Why do you think I come here everyday?  It's better then poking your eye with a sharp stick or slitting your wrists!

      I don't see any serious cold snaps in the next 2 weeks so its likely open water will still be in play for those brave enough to try it.

      Now is tough time. I was watching bays ice over a week ago and they are wide open again this week. Could be ice fishing in 10 days, could be ice fishing in a month. Who knows? I have a work trip to North Dakota in 2 weeks and I've been clinging to the hope they might be iced over so I can fish a little afterhours. Probably a longshot. I've already spooled the reels, cleaned and organized the gear, charged the batteries. Trying not to fishing-shop myself into financial woe. Even tried to celebrate open water by wading in neoprene waders and trying to find some sunfish on wetflies. No dice. Ugh.
