      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 .

Congrats on the nice walleyes. I am a first timer to the Red and never seen such nice pics. I am from the Fargo-moorhead area, and was just curious if the fishing is that good my way. I was also curious what kind of bait do you guys use, and what depth do fish. Any information about the Fargo-moorhead area would be great. Congrats on the nice "eyes" again.

Walleyes,

Just about nobody's got the kind of 'eyes they have up there in the numbers they have them! Selkirk is the land of true hogs. However, we've got some exceptional ice fishing opportunities here on the Red. That being said, if you're not an experienced dude on the Red, I'd suggest hiring Ed Carlson for a day trip or two to get the scoop on the Red and its tribs. It's well worth the money and you'll learn more in a day than you would otherwise learn in a year. I'm certainly not the world's foremost expert on ice fishing the Red, but I know infinitely more from fishing with Ed. If interested, say so and I'm sure he'll see your reply and get back to you.

I might have to make a trip up there this year. Every year I say I'm going to, but this year I might have to break down and go. Is the bite good all through the winter? It would be nice to get a chance at one of those beauties.

The best time on the red for green backs is sept-feb. most big hawgs come out late in the fall.try trolling the flats along the channel with cranks or jigging, we had a great time this year with awesome fishing at first ice by selkirk, my shack is at sugar island but i have not used it in 2 weeks as fishing is slow there right now. Still pulling them up north on the river in 20-30'+ of water.the lake fish as always are a stunning electric green color. right now we are spending our time perch fishing on lk. manitoba and waiting to get out for some big northerns!

      Thanks for the update cigarguy- were you lindy rigging?
    • CigarGuy
      Neighbor and I went out in Wakemup for a couple hours tonight and got a 18" and 19" and had a nice one come unbutton on the way in....Leaches and crawlers.  That's good for me!  20 - 34' off a break line.  Del, working on the last flight of the steps-was looking for you to stop by and help!

      I used lead core on Friday and had a ball catching walleyes of all sizes.  I started in the morning and stayed out until I just got tired in the afternoon.  I probably pulled in as many as 20 or so.  My formula was:  90 feet of line, 19-24 ft of water, #5 rattling split deep shad rap.  Silver color.  I kept it right at 2mph.  I also did much better when I pumped the rod in a regular cadence.  Keeping it in the rod holder didn't produce near the fish.

      Ace, I hope you enjoy your retirement.  I hired you one time and my boy and I had a good time.  I appreciate the hard work you did on putting us on fish.  Good Luck and maybe "Little Ace" can continue the family business some day!   Michael Theis

      These are legal aliens.  Glad you enjoyed your lunch.

      Trolling or casting jigs and spinners(silver or gold are best for pike IMO) near the weeds, in bays, etc, cranks, and top water buzz baits around weedy areas are how I get most of my pike. Use a leader. Orange jig heads with a sparkly yellow twister tail and a jumbo leech gets me more pike than any other method. Your mileage may vary.

      I had lunch there a couple of days ago. Great service and good food! I did not see any illegal type aliens there at that time!  Cliff

      Sorry, don't remember TJ Hooker.  Besides I make it a practice to avoid hookers....  (rim shot)
