      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 .

Was up all last week. Graphed fish all over, but could only get action down deep. Another fellow I talked to was worm draggin' on the reefs, and was only rewarded with the smaller sized fish, and not too many either.My action was at 32~~35 feet out in the mud. Fishing still good when I left Sunday

Got about 40 today. Quite a few in the 11- 16" range. Did manage a nice limit for 2 guys from 17-19" plus a couple really nice saugies. 28" was the biggest along with a 24, 25 and 8 or 9 low 20's slot fish. Fished deep water around Arnesens, Lemms and 16 Mile. Lemms was dead and 16 Mile was close to dead. Green/chrome reef runner and Deep Taildancers in gold perch and firetiger were best in that order. Got a few downrigging a little deeper also. Saw a dead sturgeon floating this morning and did a half a$$ed measurement on it. It looked to be around 62" long. It was pretty bloated but it looked huge. Will post a pic later.

I was out this afternoon, got a few. Kept losing them, short biters i guess. Fished all between Arnesens and Lemms with the best action drifting bait over Arnesens towards evening. There was a good chop goin by then. From the east but better than nothing.

We fished Tuesday and Wednesday. The baitfishing is getting tougher, but the mud is loaded. The fish didn't seem to care a lot about crank color but the bigger fish were higher off the bottom. There are a lot of fish fairly close to shore--28 to 30 feet--off Pine Island. Lots of boats too.

How bad was the storm on the lake last night???

Good luck.

We did okay trolling Tuesday, forty or so came to the boat. High point of the day was a double of 25+ inchers, 7 or 8 in the slot, no WHOPPERS at all this time.

Has anyone seen the new #9 Deep Taildancers on store shelves yet? I may peel out of here for GFKS this afternoon so I can try and find some. Be nice to try some out here over the weekend!!!

First of all I want to thank you guys for all your informative reports. I really appreciate learning whats happening up on the "Pond". A friend of mine who has only fished LOW a few times and I went up Wed. and bait fished the rocks east of Gull, which was very slow, we did better on Arnesen's Reef. Came into Warroad about 6 PM and the sirens were blaring, and the police were driving up and down the streets using there bull horns warning everyone to seek shelter, it looked like another tornado was in the making, we parked and went into a downtown building and I asked if they had a basement, which they did so we stayed there for supper, but nothing bad materialized. We went out yesterday and fished Arnesen's Reef (we had the downgriggers along) but decided to bait fish again, we picked up a 25" and some real nice eaters, then my buddy slammed into a real horse, after he finally got the walleye up and got it netted, it measured 31.5" and weighed 11.5#. What a pig, that gal is going on my buddy's wall. We were using gold spinner rigs with large crawlers. What a fun trip, we never saw a white cap in two days which was a treat also.

Travis, a size 9 deep version just came out 8/15. None yet in the GFKS stores last nite, Steve at Log Cabin Bait told me he'd have em in stock at his store next week. They have another deep diving minnow bait fresh out too that looked interesting....Can't remember the name of it though.

Did much better yesterday. Day started off with alot of smaller fish but moved around and did good. Did best trolling some flats in about 32 fow w/ the lures set high. Fish just everywhere, except right on the reefs. Tried jigging a few spots till after dark w/ no luck. No magnum hoggers but ended up with all 19 inch eaters. What a diference in the frying pan.

We were out on Sat. also and did O.K. Got a 29.5", 27.5, 26.5, & 25. Kept 6 nice walleyes and 2 decent saugers. Also caught a couple more low 20's and a dozen or so dinks. Best luck was north of Arnesens in the deeper water.

Question from one of the many poor slobs that can only enjoy the pain of reading about the great bite that's been going on this summer and hopefully into the fall. With the fish going nuts through late summer and the water levels down for the fall bite what are some educated guesses as to what these fish might do in October when they should be running the river. Do you think they'll continue to rome the mud.... Wanted to open the line of questioning.

      I have a number of family and friends fishing the river Thursday thru Sunday this week.  No reports yet.  I will pass them along as soon as i hear.

      Northwestern and central Minnesota have elevated fire danger due to sparse rain, high winds and lack of humidity. This means that open burning may be restricted in certain counties. The Department of Natural Resources urges Minnesotans to use caution while burning yard waste or leaf piles outdoors and to check the burning permit website for information.  “During fall, we know that residents and property owners will be taking care of leaf and brush piles,” said Casey McCoy, DNR wildfire prevention supervisor. “Piles can smolder undetected for several weeks under the right conditions. Windy, fall days can reignite these piles.” On average, Minnesota issues approximately 43,250 burn permits annually. When weather conditions warrant it, state fire team leaders may turn burning permits on or off. To determine whether burning is allowed, Minnesotans should regularly check their county burning restrictions. Residents may need to find alternatives to burning such as composting or hauling brush to a collection site or wait until it is safer to burn. “If you do decide to burn yard waste or leaf piles, do so when there is less wind,” said Linda Gormanson, burning permit coordinator. “Instead of burning your yard waste and potentially causing a wildfire, compost or chip your yard waste or bring it to a collection site.” Burning restrictions do not apply to campfires; they are still allowed. Clear an area around the campfire, watch it continuously and make sure it is out cold to the touch before leaving. Fire danger can change quickly. Check the Minnesota Incident Command System site https://goo.gl/W686km for fire behavior conditions. For questions about burning restrictions, check the DNR page at mndnr.gov/burnrestrictions or call your local Forestry office. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Lots of boats on the river daily here in LF now.  Select people are hitting good pods of fish and catching well.  Flows, though still Very swift, are slowing.  Fish are becoming a little more scattered, more fish are being caught away from shore and away from prominate structure. Minnows and tubes pulling most fish.  A few nice fish here and there most are falling in the 15-17 inch range. Good luck out there.

      Rivers are so under fished in this state.  People seem to gravitate towards lakes all the time and avoid rivers but the reality is that rivers, large and small, have awesome fishing.
    • Captain Acorn
      same results here lots of fish but had to sort through them for keepers. How bout them jumbo perch mixed in though wow.  I actually was catching quite a few smallmouth deeper as well. I had good luck with gulp alive pink shine 4" minnows too seem to catch bigger fish 
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      PSU, Lots of smaller walleyes mixed in with the keeper sized fish at most spots. A few spots do seem to have a larger percentage of keeper sized fish though. Looks very good for the next couple of years! Cliff
    • PSU
      Lot's of walleyes to be had, but most for me seem to be smaller (8-10 inches)
