      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 .

Any good sucker runs??

I remember fishing the sucker run in college (bemidji state) and having a blast doing so, I miss that. I now live in the western suburbs of the twin cities and am wondering if anyone knows of any good sucker runs out that way. Altough they're just suckers, they sure can be a blast and good fighters too - thanks for any help!

Your best bet would be the Crow River. It would be the closest to you. I dont know of any other places to try in the west metro. Any part of the river you should be able to catch some suckers, pick a spot if nothing bites in 5 minutes try somewhere else shouldnt take you very long to find some fish.

You must have fished the power dam? I go to bsu right now and am an avid outdoorsman. Cant ask for a better life, fish almost everyday. Ya the suckers were up there thick this year and it truely is a blast. Gonna soak it in for another 3 years as much as i possibly can.

We have been doing great down here in Zumbro Falls. We usually get a mixed bag of suckers every time we go. There is a contest that runs for a week. It's going on right now and the biggest so far is a 6 pound 8 ounce Silver Redhorse that's leading.

The river is a little low right now and I think the spawning run has slowed some.

Yeah, I miss the powerdam in the spring and reel'n one in almost every cast. I finished at BSU in Dec 2000. I'm gonna have to try to make it up there for next year's run. There's so much good fishing to be had at the end of april in the bemidji area. Make the most of it while you can - BSU is a great place to be!!

Minnehaha creek has a white sucker run upstream of lake Hiawatha and several sucker species run from the Mississippi up until the big falls block them. (pretty much everything runs up Minnehaha below the falls, one of the top stream fishing spots in the metro)

A little hunk o cralwer on a small hook lindy rigged should get em. It has in the past on the Crow River in the summer. I don't know if they eat while spawing though. If they do another option could be some good ol corn, but it falls off the hook easy. There are recipes for field corn thats tougher which you can find on this site.

      ripped out some old boards that were well past their prime on my boat.  Any recomendations on what to replace them with?  They looked to be treated plywood but wondering if getting something different would work better.  Such as a piece of 1 x 12 pine and throwing a few coats of polyurethane on it as well?  The boards I am talking about are for the benches.   Also, replacing the seats in there as well.  Previous i had the the vinyl foam seats.  When shopping around i am seeing a lot of the molded plastics chairs.  Any preference out there for durability?  Vinyl rips but wondering if the molded crack or break?   Thanks for any feed back!

      The flocks of geese are now flying over my house in the morning and evening, but when this happens Finn gets all jacked up. Like right now he is nudging me and running pawing at the window. A few minutes earlier when the first gaggle few over I was going to change the laundry and Finn raced down and sat by gun safe  whining.  Fishing reports have been great for crappies on the area lakes. Walleyes are not biting as well in lakes but when the rum is clearer that is the place to be. Bears any no quota hunters this might be your year to get a bear around here.  Deer seem to every where drive carefull.  Seeing some ducks flying around.  I have seen a few grouse and pheasants.

      I've been by a time or two trying to figure out which place is yours.   I was out on wakemup last night too.   Got nothing, on crawlers.  Started out at merry go round, went to "picnic island" (little island east/south of taylors).  rigged along edge of those two humps in like 18-25 feet.   Musky guys were coming so I turned.  They turned too, chunking baits in the vicinity of my boat.   Then some guys in a pontoon pulled up and anchored in front of me  and threw out bobbers.   Fished a while longer, and it was getting sort of dark so went home.   Weird.  I've been on those humps a bunch of times this year, and suddenly I get company.   And, even though it is a pretty big area they gravitated to where I was.  I'll be out today too, so if you need help with supervision, let me know.    But I will drive by to check out the new construction.

      Been getting a few on the weed line, early am when there's a little breeze, since the surface temps started coming down. That was about this month's full moon, for me. A very slow troll, fishing vertically, & just a 1/16 oz. jig.

      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!
