      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 .

Fisherdog, a friend and I fished an area lake today and got into some nice crapppies. Marabou jigs and fatheads was the bait of choice today. The biggest fish caught today was 1 lb 12 oz and about 14 inches. The other fish were not too far behind in size.

We also caught at least a dozen walleyes, and quite a few perch and bull gills, definitely some with some nice size to them.

It's been nice getting into those fish over the last couple weeks. I appreciate the offers to swap spots, but crappies like that are very hard to find, especially in the middle of summer. Not to mention that I'm sworn to secrecy. We fished a fairly decent sized lake, and the fish would be nearly impossible to find if you would fish it blind. We picked them up until around 1:30 pm, and then chased some walleyes and got about a dozen until around 3:30, and when we ran out of crawlers, we had a hard time getting more. When I get one over 2 pounds, I'll post a picture of it.

It's about time that lake started to kick in again. I've heard it has slab's like that but have only caught walleye's out there and maybe on slabby like that. Either way it's good to see fish like that on that lake.

I haven't fished the lake, but I know these guys have been there a few times...mostly in the spring. Probably will be there more often now!!

Peter and Noah...

I'm moving to Antigo, WI. Up north!!! More crappie options and of course the muskie. Keep in touch!

Hammer out!

Hammer, it's a new lake and we've never fished it in the spring. Only way you get to find out which lake it is, is if you come and visit tongue.gif. Why the move, new job? If you need any help with you know what, call me.

That lake has alot of those buggers in it. We did good in june, but havent been out in a long time. Last time we went it was too hot and the water seemed to be cloudy. This spring it was crystal clear. We were watching walleye's in 6-8 feet of water pretty crazy. How was the size on you walleyes, most of ours were 12-14 with a few bigger ones bout 16-18. Oh and hows the water clarity. The fish in that lake will sometimes bite mad for a bit then just shut down. Good job on the crappies, as i know they are hard to find, just try a yellow fuzzy jig, as minnows slow me down out there sometimes.

I'm trying to figure out how some of these guys think they know which lake we were on. There must be at least 10 access in Becker county that I know of, that look exactly, or close to the one in the pictures. If you guys can tell which lake it is by the pictures of the access, then consider yourselves Sherlock Holmes' laugh.gif.

Peter, I was wondering the same thing. Besides, who said I was being honest when I said it was in Becker Co.? grin.giftongue.gif

I live about 1200 miles away from that lake - or what I presume to be that lake - and miss everyday away from it. Anyhow always fun to see an access or lake and think you know where it is. If it is the lake that I'm thinking it is then you should go back out there ~~ Oct. 1-10. Yeah sure you bet you'll have a good time.

Regardless of where it is the longer we sit and talk about it the less time your on the water. So quit talkin and start fishin.

      Also check for water in the fuel filter. At higher rpms water droplets travel to carbs and causes poor combustion. Happened to me some years ago. Had to drain water out of tank.

      Skunked, It was nice meeting you.  I've seen you,  your wife and little one a few times, but you never waved-thought you might be mad at me after we had a little debate on netting.  Sounds like were good!  Stop by if you see me on the dock.  That was my wife and sister in-law assembling the bench. That pinch area on the river is tight and some folks tend to fly right thru.  Also, people fishing on that dock in the pinch down area in the spring, don't like to reel in their bobber when you try to navigate through the boats in the spring.  I used the fish the St Louis River a lot and fellow fisherman were terrible flying by you.  I too follow the no-wake policy when going through tight areas.

      Yep, done for the year.  Not much for heat or insulation in the cabin.  It's a real, honest to goodness cabin.   So, as of Thursday, adios.  Until next year, etc.
    • CigarGuy
      Del, are you done up here for the year?  Missing the best part of the year!  If you see me on the dock or out on the lake..say hi!  I wouldn't just drop in and introduce myself either-not my style.  Don't have to worry too much about anybody climbing the mountain to do that

      About 69 this morning.... And this concludes my reporting until sometime in 2018, Lord willing. But I will still be watching....
    • delcecchi
      I will add that it is nothing like the old days when throwing a marker was practically life threatening..... But that is west end.   If it wasn't for the musky  guys there would only be like three of us...

      Told my wife I wanted to watch hooker....  she said " you aren't watching any hookers while I'm around"   rim shot.

      The public access on Grand Lake in Stearns County will be temporarily closed Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. for hand removal of starry stonewort. This temporary closure is necessary for the safety of workers and divers.  A relatively light population of the invasive algae was recently confirmed around the Grand Lake public access, following a coordinated starry stonewort search involving 200 trained detectors in 20 counties. DNR invasive species specialists will hand-pull starry stonewort while preserving native aquatic plants. Starry stonewort has never been eradicated from any lake in the United States, but treatment can ease access and recreational use of a lake, while helping to reduce the risk of infestation to other water bodies. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Skunked.  Reruns on late nite so watch Hooker for laughs. Never saw it much in 1983. Shatter is Kirk as Hooker. To fun. He an his three self trained rookies are the answer to everything  the only squad with action an Hooker solves every case by end of show ending with a real dramatic line an stop action shot  acting is really bad but fun. City neeeds Hooker an he an crew kick it into high gear. Real 80's corn. Locklear n James Darren an Adrain Zmed prove trying to act is not hard but acting is. Total fun an totally predictable. Best lure I been use in is a simple black buck tail an a huge ol red n white spoon. Wallys like my raps dragged on a 2oz bottom bouncer an pike for some reason been eating my worms on a floaty. Smaller are a hoot an my Hounds love the action. Speaking of action. I have never seen a show with as much running in it as TJ Hooker. Ol Capt. Kirk is always on the go. "You call it in. I'll get'nm". "I want him bad. Ya hear. BAD".   :  ). I sure miss my pup Moe Rock. Bummer so this is a treat. Keep on rocken!  Fish on. T
