      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 .

I wanted to say hello and that i like the forum. A little about me, when i was ten my father took me to Leech Lake for a week fishing trip. It was the best time of my life. Now almost twenty two years latter I am taking him back to the same lodge on Leech lake the end of May beginning of June. I have a lot of questions on what kind of gear, tackle and clothing to bring along. I have alot of questions and have been trying to read previous posts so I dont waste anyones time going over old material. I am grateful in advance for any help and look forward to this forum. Thanks.

Welcome to the site and I am happy for you to find yourself back on the water sharing the fun with your little guy.

What you will find on the site are many different forums for which you can find information on.

Your first post is real general, so hard to decifier what you are exactly looking for (gear bags, jigs, rapalas, hooks,rods, reels,).

Take the time to really get to know the many different forums. When I'm fishing for Bass, I'll go to the Bass forum. If I'm planning on fishing crappies or walleyes-perch, I'll go into those specific forums.

As for geographical areas, the site breaks down the major watersheds or bigger lake destinations for you to surf and post in.

I think you will find that everyone here is more than willing to share information with you....except for that honey hole on their local lake.

Let us know what you are looking for and we'll help you out!

Hope you enjoy the site!

Sounds like a great trip you have coming up. There's nothing I'd rather do than the type of trip you have planned. I try to fit several in each year with my dad. We always have a great time mostly because we're doing somthing we love together. Check out the Leech lake forums especially the week before you head up for the most recent reports.

Also, Welcome to the site! laugh.gif

SAR5, Welcome aboard. Your a good son.

Visit the Leech lake forum for locations and presentations that work for that time of year and check with your resort just prior to your trip.

As far as clothing, Could be shorts and T-shirt weather or it could be snowing. The breathable rain gear doubles as a shell to cut the wind, use fleece for insulating layers.

Welcome to the site SAR5.

You are doing the right thing by checking out the older posts. There is a lot of good information already found here. But don't be afraid to ask something dumb either?? Some topics haven't been touched on in awhile and could be a good refresher for everybody.

      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.
