      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 Dirty dog eyeguy caught one more fish than me today, again. He also caught the largest fish. Well, at least it was a nice day (for Nov 20th) tongue.gif. I'm not sure how much more I'm going to get out. eyeguy and I were talking about trying around Monti the next time it's in the 40's. Hopefully that won't be until May grin.gif. Anybody else still getting some (fish)? smirk.gif

Nope it isn't just you. Water temps on my graph yesterday showed 33.7!!! BRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR! No wonder all I could muster up was one smally, a unintentionally foul hooked cat and a dink northern. But, I did notice a couple of other guys out that were using minnows with no aparent luck.... So I guess just catching a few is ok.....crazy.gif

A bit chilly out for this kid even with the cold gear on. I spent all of 2.5 hours fishing. Might have to opt for some warmer water the next time.... grin.gif

Where do they go? It seems like either they are still in the same spots but aren't feeding, or they move. What are the cold water patterns for the river smallies? confused.gif

The go to Sartell! Actually, I think they just stop feeding for the most part. They won't chase anything because they are conserving energy. It has to be easy picking for them. It looks like the boat is gonna be put up for the year now. Cold weather all this week! Boo!

I'll hopefully be down on Pool 2 and 4 for early spring bassin'. Pool 2 has some good bass, but you've got to weed out the mixed bag... lots of sheepies, dogfish, crappie, eyes, dink snakes, etc... Prime example - this summer on my way out fishing on the upper 'sippi, had an extra 45 minutes, swung by a shore spot & on 4 consecutive casts caught 4 different fish (smallie, pike, 'eye, & white bass)

Either way - I've got all my gear stored for the winter. time to start tuneups on reels, clean the tackle bag out, get my stuff organized, etc...

He's a jerk and he knows it, half the members of that site are one step away from being peta members, anyway... I guess if he ever really watched the boat perform he might just shut his mouth, instead of just looking at the top speed!

I'd be happy to forward the site addy. Drop me a email.

It is a river smallmouth site, mainly east coast guys. 99% are great guys.

Rock Hopper likes to "poke the bear" every so often. He works for the PA DNR and doesn't think highly of me or RiverPros, but he's harmless.

KT, you have mail. I am hoping to get out on the river over thannksgiving. It may have to be in 30 degree temps. My deer hunting is done with the Wisconsin opener finished. Going after some Chinese Chickens this weekend for a couple days and then the river. My 40 th straight year at deer opener with my Father who is 83, I count my blessings ever day that I get to enjoy with him. He will be pheasant hunting with us this week end. Too many things I want to do (dang work gets in the way lol).

Hopefully the weather guys are wrong about the temps this week. lol

      Looking to get on some walleye and crappie this week, looks like mayflies were out in full force last night when I was on the lake. First year fishing this lake, where does a guy start?

      Caught some gills this was the first one

      Thank you one and all, especially you Tommy. Some very kind words and ditto to you my friend. "Ace" "It's just fishing man"  
    • tacklejunkie
      Picked up some nice crappie and a couple eater walleyes on Allouez Bay the other day before the rains. Trolled crawlers with one light split shot and others with bottom bouncers. I was surprised at how big the crappie were

      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!

      Off to wet a line !!

      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.

      Still holding stable at 72 for the lest week or so
