      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 .

Well last night I tried to launch my boat at the new landing on Howard Lake. The landing was to shallow to get my boat off the trailer. I had my front tires in the water so they were the only thing left on the concrete slab and I still couldn't get it off. It is a pretty nice landing but I think that they need to dig it out a little. Last year I had pull a guy out that had backed his front tires off the concrete into the sand. Real flat landing.
I am planning on hitting Pulaski, Rock and Maple this weekend to try to track down some slabs. The water temp at the landing on Howard was 51 degrees.

I'll be out this weekend sometime if it doesn't rain. Water temps look like they are warming up. It was 45 degrees last time I was out and the fishing was slow.

Which access is best on Clearwater? I would like to head out and try to find some crappies but I have spent very little time on this lake? Is the water real low where I need to watch out for knocking my lower unit off in spots? Any help would be great. I will pick up a map. Any bays better than others?

The water on clearwater is low right now . It is common for a lower unit to be tore up on it . I will say this thou you bust up your boat .9 times out of 10 you will know remember it grin.gif.. the recent rain we got did hepl some , could use quite a bit more .

As for the launchs,, i would say a newbie should use the BoBs bay landing. Puts you right in on the main lake. The Black Pool Landing you have to drive though narrow spot.

A number of years ago a buddy picked up a Brand new boat and wanted to have me with him breaking it in on clearwater since i live on it .He wanted to do it all in one afternoon . In the end while doing approx 64mph i Said to him " Dont do anything at all and just look over the side of the boat" .. He Did And then and then went to slow down .I yelled at him " Speed Back up before you hit!!!" The spot is about 3 feet deep and not real big. I did have him across it many times before the full bore ride. I just never told him to look down grin.gif hahah

Hey Duckbill...Pulaski's access is plenty deep...it's just in poor shape, due to the ice heaving up onto shore. (Pushed some of the concrete slabs up). There are two ramps, side-by-side (with a dock in between, that is half submerged!)...last week the crappies weren't biting, but then again, the cold snap caused that. I imagine this weekend should be better, however a new front is moving in tonight! (Chance of rain tomorrow and Sunday)

Most Wright & Meeker cty lakes are producing panfish right now! I absolutely love this time of year. smile.gif Nav

ps. The smaller lakes can be real sleepers, BUT please practice C&R. Keep a few and toss back the rest. wink.gif

      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.
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      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.
