      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 .

North Kato Launch Terrible all season

How many people do I gotta call to get the North Mankato Launch cleaned out? Its bad!! The planks are washed out, they havent cleaned the silt off all summer, and now with the river low its worse. I (Contact US Regarding This Word) near tear my duallies off trying to get the RP out. I have called the parks department and left repeated messages with no response. I remember a few years ago my dad tried calling the city and was told it is not considered a public use ramp... I was like hmmm ,ok, well if the city has a drowning they are gonna be SOL except for running to Land of Memories. Any thoughts? How many people have used this one? Its right below the bridge...

that launch is horrible. mostly i think its on the wrong side of the river. it's shallow as hell. inside bend if the dike walls weren't built through the city i bet it'd be a big sand bar right there. the concrete planks are shot too, you're right, totally washed out and move all over when you drive on em.

Blake, I think they refer to that landing as a canoe access and not a full boat access. Not sure if it is even public as I was kicked out of there before from launching back a few years.

With land of memories only a couple miles up river, I wouldn't think it would make sense to maintain both ramps. I think it was put in during the bridge reconstructions to support that, not for public use. I could be wrong on that as that was many years ago.

Good call guys. I just get angry when I see it deteriorate. Its a 3 mintue drive from my house, where the LOM one is a 8 minute drive. After work I am literally in a race to the launch!!

      Thanks for the update cigarguy- were you lindy rigging?
    • CigarGuy
      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!

      I used lead core on Friday and had a ball catching walleyes of all sizes.  I started in the morning and stayed out until I just got tired in the afternoon.  I probably pulled in as many as 20 or so.  My formula was:  90 feet of line, 19-24 ft of water, #5 rattling split deep shad rap.  Silver color.  I kept it right at 2mph.  I also did much better when I pumped the rod in a regular cadence.  Keeping it in the rod holder didn't produce near the fish.

      Ace, I hope you enjoy your retirement.  I hired you one time and my boy and I had a good time.  I appreciate the hard work you did on putting us on fish.  Good Luck and maybe "Little Ace" can continue the family business some day!   Michael Theis

      These are legal aliens.  Glad you enjoyed your lunch.

      Trolling or casting jigs and spinners(silver or gold are best for pike IMO) near the weeds, in bays, etc, cranks, and top water buzz baits around weedy areas are how I get most of my pike. Use a leader. Orange jig heads with a sparkly yellow twister tail and a jumbo leech gets me more pike than any other method. Your mileage may vary.

      I had lunch there a couple of days ago. Great service and good food! I did not see any illegal type aliens there at that time!  Cliff
