      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 .

Haven't been out there yet with the canoe this year but there are some fish in there. Bass on teh weed edges and the occasional Muskie or pike. If you after the panfish you will have no problem catching them. If it is size your after, don't go there...

This lake sucks because the lake's property owners hate fishermen. They'll jet ski and water ski within casting distance of your boat..... no joke! I've never heard of too many nice fish being caught here either. The access is kind of lame too.

What about Fish then? Or is there another smaller lake close by?

if you're intent on staying in maple grove, you could try eagle. it gets a ton of pressure, but you can usually find a spot to fish on it. it's not too big either. bigger than weaver, but that's not saying much as weaver is just a mere puddle. depends on where you live though, and what you're after.

Doesn't have to be Maple Grove but I would like to stay off of large lakes such as WBL and would like to be around the Champlin, Plymouth, surrounding area. I was thinking about Linwood but that's a bit further than I really wanted to drive.

You dont have to worry about homeowners causing problems for you on Weaver(or any lake for that matter) if you get out early enough in the morning.

Weaver can be a pretty darn good bass lake if you ask me.

I have had some nice success there, but all of it has been in the morning on weekdays before the locals stir up the lake. I had a buddy who fishing there last year get basicly ran off the lake by the locals, they were running their boat around him and would not leave until he finally just gave up.

Thanks for all the input guys. We decided to try Bald Eagle instead. Its got a ton of structure and many humps. We're not getting out until around 8am so hopefully we'll get a couple of hours in before any rec boaters get to it and it looks like there are some bays as well.

I'll post back and let you know how we did.

      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.

      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.
