      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 .

Fall Stress

Fall Stress, just how do you handle it? Some of the best fishing of the year is just around the corner, then there is bird hunting with deer season and the water will be getting hard. The never ending honey do list just keeps getting longer and some great golf with the cooling days and changing of the leaves. Makes me fill guilty to take the month of September off just to fish grin.gif So what do you do in the fall? if you have a choice to you hunt or keep fishing?

I personally keep fishing. Do to my distance from the place we usually hunt I don't get to get up there very often, but lakes are all over our great state and anywhere I am there is one within at least 15 minutes. So I say fish. And also take the month off! grin.gif I wish I had the financial means to do that!

Oh yeah and don't worry about the golf clubs, the view from the lake can't be beat by a golf course shocked.gif

It depends. Below 32 degrees, hunt. Above freezing, fish.

The last thing a golf course needs is me out on it.

Hunt AND fish.

There is no such thing as stress in the fall confused.gif

...But, I should add, if you want to call it stress waiting for all the hunting seasons to open then so be it. grin.gif

My stress is deciding where I want to fish in the fall since I don't hunt. Some great bass fishing in october along with walleyes or crappies.

Well, as much as I love fishing, with archery deer season, grouse, and pheasant seasons open its tough to find time to get out on the water. I have had some of my most productive walleye days during the fall though!

I deal with it just fine. smile.gifI bow hunt from Thursday through Sunday,then fish and bird hunt during the week.If that is all you have to do then it does work and there is no stress. smile.gifThe only problem you may run into is resting but it only lasts for two months and then you can rest while ice fishing. smile.gif

Quit trolling cranks through my decoys then! grin.gif

I try to stay closer to home for hunting and fishing.. less drive time = more time. Duck hunt 3-4 mornings a week when the birds are flying, fish sturgeon during the day(or night) when birds arent flying, troll cranks in the evening when the walleyes turn on. Just about the time the wife goes crazy.. give her some money to go christmas shopping, and promise to take her out of town "next weekend"... when you get there send her out on the 4 wheeler for trail rides when you get out of town.. watch her dissapear down the trail and walk the other way and go grouse hunting. If she complains when you get home and says there wasnt enough *time together*, take her sturgeon fishing!

Nothing beats stress better than an evening in the bowstand. As much as I love fishing, hunting takes over in September.

duck hunting and shooting at spinner baits flying by is a great stress relief. Seriously duck hunting ussally takes presetance over everything but this year I'm going to fish alot more than the past and I'm bow hunting for the first time in a lomg time. Any stress left over will be left on the hard water when it comes. spear shack now thats stress relief. I know I'm getting into the wrong season sorry. lol to everyone.

From the end of Sept. to Thanksgiving there is no such thing as fishing for me. Ducks, Pheasants, Pronghorn, and then Deer. At thanksgiving my ice gear comes out and that is it for hunting for the year. I know I miss some of the best fishing and hunting but there just arent enough days in the year to do everything. But hunting is one of the tops on my list hopefully work doesn't get in the way too much this fall. How ever I wouldn't exactly call it stress. It is just enjoyable to be outside in the fall.

Fishing in the fall is the best! While I respect everybody's decision to hunt int he fall all I can say is THANK YOU for not being on the lakes with me! Don't worry though us fall fishermen will try to save some bigguns for ya, well actually via CPR I save all of the bigguns I get (or at least try to).

Fall is prime time for fishing for me. I'm too hyper-active for bow hunting and for the last several years deer hunting hasn't required more than a few hours during opening weekend; so I just concentrate on fishing. Also being an empty nester and having a wife that just loves it when I take a few days and head out for a fishing trip takes lots of stress out of what used to be a busy time of year with all the back to school activites like football games, swim meets, soccer, etc. One other thing I found out years ago is that MY HONEY can do a few of those projects on that list.

      I've gotten a lot of eyes this year, this being my best. Several in the 24" range and a LOT of eaters. A buddy and I took my mom out fishing and we got our limit of eater eyes in about an hour and a half. Good times!
    • Daniel Anderson
      Nice! That looks like a good time.

      Let us know how it goes. I have a cabin on Linwood just off Whiteface. Be nice to find good spots in the area, seeing as for whatever reason I never fish Linwood...

      What a morning jigging on one of the best, fastest bites of the summer for me Tuesday morning of this week.  I had a guide trip but they cancelled that morning and I almost stayed on shore. Since I had the boat in the water and everything was set I went out by myself to check out a couple of spots.  I didnt get very far    
    • jj56342
       Anyone have any good news or been up there lately waz up  over the Fourth of July did OK nothing to brag about a few walleyes  or any other lakes around the area not looking for hotspots or nothing trying to catch a few panties
    • jj56342
      OK thank you thinking about going up first week in September
    • proguide
      Low water continues to be the issue on the Red. Below the dams still remains sketchy so use boats at your own risk.  The fishing remains stable, similar to last week in that the fish are spread out but in the holes in the middle of the river.  Short 15-20 minute sits on spots keeping the bait fresh looking for the active catfish.
        Bait is still heavy to frogs and frozen suckers with goldeyes working some but it seems that frog and sucker are the best.  As water cools down I suspect fresh sucker will come into play as well.

      I used to have many fields but some guides came in and pay for the fields. I am down to 3 farms but they don't have any small grains this year. So I am going to take the early season off. As I know the geese will use some ponds to rest and I have access to them so I will wait until the regular season to pick off a few geese.
