      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 .

That could be arranged, like I told you that day you saw me Pike fishing in Warroad I can hook you up with some no prob. It's not so much the how as the where up in these parts when it comes to the chubs. definetly wanna use a double funnel trap as they're pretty good at getting out when they see you coming. Kinda hard to build a real efficient double gate trap on the small size trap a guy is limited to without a commercial permit but a guy can build one that'll work pretty good.

Those Big wild Shiners I had that day are thick right now and usually the Chubs show up a week or three behind them, then they start their nest building and are quite catchable in the runs they nest in.

WT one of these days I'll show you where my property is south of town and then you can just get some out of my keep pens in the creek behind the shop. Far less time consuming! I'll let you know when I have a few gallons out there.

Hopefully the creeks did'nt swell too much after the past few rains as I'm planning on getting out today and/or tomorrow to trap some bait for the weekend.

Fisky,

That sounds great! I appreciate it. Good bait is hard to come by up here a lot of the time. Drop me a line when you have some red tails around... I'll make it up to you somehow... I often have a open seat in the Ranger!

Fisky, I'm just south of Wannaska on the river and would be interested in seeing your setup for trapping the chubs as well as any tips on areas to look for.

Widetrack, I'll be up at the angle quite a bit this summer.... if you're looking for someone to go musky hunting some time let me know.

Ripper,

you will have to get authorization from Fisky to tag along.

Rbach:

Sounds good, I'm at the Angle as often as possible, and fish solo quite often. Nobody else can put up with me... crazy.gif

Have we met?

I was only joking. I did manage to pick quite a few crawlers on Monday night though. Leeches should be coming this week from Fargo.

Fisky, do you trap those too?

Widetrack, I don't think we've met.... I've seen a lot of your posts and noticed that you often fish for muskies at the angle. I get out fishing for them when friends come to visit, but everyone else wants to fish walleyes. It's nice a nice change of pace. Shoot me an email if you ever need company... rbach33@wiktel.com

      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.
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      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.
