      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 .

walleyejon, I want to thank you again for taking us out on Sunday. It was a blast. You were absolutely right that these fish can really put up a fight! We used the GPS to get us back on the fish on Moday and Tuesday. In the three days up there we ended up with a 58",52",51",50",48" two 46", a 44" and a ton others smaller than that! My arms were getting sore from the fish...not a bad complaint! HA HA! I'll try to get some of the pics up on here soon. Thanks again Jon for all you did. Oh yea, on Monday we searched the island for your hat, but didn't have any luck. wink.gif

Leech, I kinda figured you guys wouldn't regret the long drive. Did Scotty finally get one with some shoulders? You guys didn't run out of crawlers did ya? I'm glad you had such a blast, and I'll be looking for some pics......

That was the first time I ever wore that hat outside too. If anyone catches a sturgeon wearing a camo outback style hat, its mine.

Scott did get into a bigger one. I think his biggest of the trip went 51". No we didn't run out of crawlers, but we were getting close. It's amazing how 24 dozen crawlers can fly by in three days when you are catching fish!

Heres my biggest sturgeon at 50" caught on Tuesday

Here's the biggest one from the trip. It went 58"

Anybody been out there lately. Some of us stir-crazy Canadians are looking to come down and knock the rust off before we've gotta' start fighting little old channel cats again on the Red. Season doesn't open up here 'till the 14th ! cya9ci.gif

Cold, snowy, hard west wind, tight lipped fish last weekend.

Our group (15-20 of us)usually does very well and catches 5-10 sturgeon per person per weekend,...

our whole group caught 5 sturgeon for 2.5 days of fishing.

Like I said, it was a rough weekend.

So I take it you were marking fish but couldn't get them to go ? Doesn't surprise me with the snow, wind, and generally crappy weather on the weekend, though! I'm thinking they'll probably turn on again now that it's decent weather.

On a side note, where exactly is the launch at Baudette, or should I launch elsewhere to fish 4 mile and surounding area?

I see somebody got lucky with a nice 65", though!!!

The latest pic that is posted is of myself and my fishing partner. I sent a copy to the DNR office in Baudette but did not expect it to show up on here. Guess I better be careful what I do with my pics.

Sorry Hibbing, just don't sue for copyright infringement grin.gif!!! Stu McKay at Cats on the Red up here had it e-mailed to him and he sent it my way. Nice fish, hope I hook her this weekend!

Did I at least get the measurements right?

65" x 32" to be exact. DNR figures ir weighed 98 lbs. I'm not sure how you would convert that kilograms smile.gif !

It was the biggest fish I've ever caught - at least until next season!

      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.

      Ditto. I switched to a 3 inch shell in #2 shot. I missed a few wood ducks this morning but got one teal. Not bad for the WMA I was hunting. 2 ducks would be great. 3-4 like you won the lottery. Saw plenty of action but it was fast moving wood ducks out of range. Geese never showed. And you can't shoot trumpeter swans! There were plenty of those. Let my boy sleep in this morning. Tomorrow we'll hit the more pressured lake. I saw at least one person setting up on it this morning on my drive to the WMA. The nice thing about that - when you're almost certain you'll be the only one there - is that you can roll in not long before shooting time if it doesn't take you long to set up.
    • Bigfatbert
      Hey Moose , sounds like some tough shooting as of late for you at those duckies . Just curious as to what choke you are using ?
