      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 think I saw the same guy on Saturday, (yesterday) while going for a ride and wondered the same thing. It wasn't like he was trying to hide or anything so could he have been targeting 'cats? I dunno so this is a good question.-Pete

I don't have a rule book handy, can you fish cats right now? Or when does the season start for them, they are fun to catch and release.

If inland seasons apply to the area, cats are open year around.

I don't think cat season opens until next weekend. Could be wrong.

He was more than likely fishing for black suckers. They're thick in the St. Louis and are fun to fish for this time of year. Crawler off the bottom is all you need, the mouths of small feeder creeks or in a fast water/slow water seam is the best bet. Lots of bones but they're very good smoked. Later in the year the meat can get soft and taste muddy, but during pre-spawn the meat is white and firm.

Fisher Dave did you leave Floodwood?

Sure did .. I had enough of *Dodge City* of the north for a lifetime... lack of work, and people stealing everything that wasn't nailed down, and a few things that were.. I figured I better get out before I lost everything, or killed someone trying to take it.

I will still be in the area from time to time... but I can go there and back on a tank of gas... the fishing on the st louis can be worth it.

FlagUp, this weekend should be pretty good for suckers, maybe even a little early (ice went out a week ago). There should be about a week-long run of blacks, and then the redhorse will start biting. I don't keep the redhorse tho I've heard some people do.

I fish in the Brookston area, not too far from Cloquet. There's several really good spots right in town, but I'm sure you can catch them up and down the length of the river. The mouth of any medium or larger sized feeder creek is going to have suckers around.
