      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 .

Dan and I slayed the fish tonight. Hook up a crawler and cast for the current break in a nice big eddie.

There were 6 of us fishing at this one eddie and we caught many different kinds of sucker. Included in our catch were white bass, rock bass, the elusive Northern hog sucker, sheepies and "something with teeth" that bit off Dan's rig. Too much fun....

Dan & Murph,

A few questions for you guys. What kind of set do you guys use when fishing those "trout"? Do you guys find that evening fishing is best for suckers or does any time of day work? Was that just what worked out for you guys since you worked during the day? I talked my wife into going tomorrow afternoon, so if either of you guys are heading out I'll probably see you there. First though I'll need directions. That is if it isn't a super secret hot spot. Thanks.

Andy

Thanks Murph,

What a great time! Those fish really put up a battle.

Roasted river dogs for supper and catching some bugle lips. Iceing on the cake.

My big one for the night was a solid 22+ incher. Kind of hard convincing it to come to shore untill it tired a bit.

Some of the fish Murph had stayed in the current and he really had a time steering them back towards shore.

That Red Horse was small but it sure did fight ooo.gif

I use a slip sinker big enough to hold in the current then a swivel or a spit shot about a foot or two up from your hook. Not sure about the time factor. Like you said, going after work is just the way it worked out.

Andy,

The first spot I would recommend is the first wingdam upstream from Hammond. To get to Hammond go north on Hwy.63. Turn right on CR11. That will wind down and around to the mighty metropolis of Hammond. Cross the big bridge and make a left. That's what we refer to as "The River Road". Then just go about a quarter of a mile and you will see the wing dam. If there already is people there just slide up river about 50 yards or so and you will notice a little sandy shoreline. Try it there some.

You will also notice along that road many pull over spots that will allow you to stop and park your vehicle.Try a few out, some of the fun is finding agood spot all on your own.

The spot we were at last night can easily support 10 people to fish without any worries of casting over someone else.

As far as presentation, Dude it's the simplest way I have ever fished. Nothing more tha a crawler gobbed up on a #6 or #8 baitholder hook and a heavy enough split shot a foot or two up. Then just cast out to the edge of the current break. Set your rig in a couple of "Y" sticks and wait. As soon as you see a tap tap on the rod tip put the hurts donut to it and reel it in.

Guaranteed fun for all. I'll keep an eye out for you. I still have an ice fishing picture of you to give you.

Dan-

Those suckers sure are purrrdddyyy, eh?? Sorry, been watching too much Blue Collar Comedy tour lately. grin.gif

If you wouldn't mind a tag-a-long, I would love to come down and fish those with you some weekend. It wouldn't be too bad of a drive for me.

You sound like your fishing sort of near Milville. I've been to the Spring Creek MX park a couple times there with a friend but never bothered fishing the area.

      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.

      Hey Moose , sounds like some tough shooting as of late for you at those duckies . Just curious as to what choke you are using ?
    • Wakemup
      Has anyone ever stored with Oak Narrows Storage before? Need a spot to put a Polaris Ranger for the winter and thinking of calling them for a space, does anyone have any experience or feedback? Any other recommendations would be welcome. Need a 10x10 or 10x12 space likely.
      Thanks!
    • monstermoose78
      the rum is back in its banks so bet the fishing is amazing? Anyone out trying? Where are all of you? I know it’s busy time but let us know what you are chasing.
    • monstermoose78
      I need to slow down and focus on shooting 
    • MinnowBuckets
