      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 .

Shiners in the river??

Just had to do ask and get it started. I just made my reservations for mid October. Can't wait. I have been fishing the river in the fall for about 12 years now and can't wait until I get to pound the 1/2 oz jig on the bottom. I will be taking my wife with me along with my parents. After many years of coming home with story's of the river I can't wait until they finally get to experience it first hand. Fall is almost here. Bow hunting, fishing and rifle deer season. Just got to love fall in Minnesota.

Never tried it up there. Have plenty near home. Might just have to toss the 870 in the truck for my time up there. Never know about Minnesota in late October. One day could be 50+ degrees and the next you could have two feet of snow. Good Idea Thanks!!!!!

Hey colonel, I ve fished the river for about nine years now been going out of frontier, my main stay technique has always been fire balls, stingers sometimes rattle collors, ultralight rods an 1lb dia. 8lb test power pro. I find structure an anchor, letting the pods move to me. It has always produced nice stringers of fish, I've had my tough time for sure, but this year is different. I know the water level is down with hardly any current, I've thought about maby pulling plugs or anchoring on structure an slip bobbering since the current is ultra slow. Things might change by the time i get there but was wondering what you might be thinking with the current conditions. Thanks, later boar

Boar, I have heard the same as you. From what I've read it sounds like a lot of people are trolling with spinners and raps. Like I said before never know until you get there. I will still bring up my jig box and hit some of my favorite spots. I'm heading up October 22nd and will see what the river gives.

Hi guys,

I am a fool and heading out this weekend- tomorrow to be exact.

It's great you post this advice. This is my 6th year out in Fall, 4 of which I have been snowed on. This should be no exception.

I usually go with the hammered gold and minnows, but I am going to give some of the other suggestions given here so I have an edge over my other 7 buddies going up (no wives & kids for this trip, it gets a little blue).

I will let you know how I do. Any last minute tips, not addressing how much booze and warm clothes I should bring up?

Thanks,

Jughead.

Here is the latest hot tip. During the Wigwam Fall Classic

nicer fish were smacking jigging spoons!!!!!!!Just like

through the ice, hang a minnow head on the treble and go

to work. Use a bigger, heavy spoon like a Glow Devil or

Buck Shot or even a Swedish Pimple..... This was working

out in the lake, spoons are hard to use in the current of

the river.

Oh yeah and dont tell anyone.

That's alright Curt, we already cashed the check. You can tell anyone you want...now. grin.gif

Great tournament again by Kevin and crew. I just can't believe, that for the first time ever, for the North Star Fall version, that mother nature didn't kick our pituty.

Very dangerous roads around Fargo this morning though, so if any of you are traveling north, either to Pine Falls, Rainy River, pheasant hunting, etc, etc, BE CAREFUL. Roll overs abound this morning in The Valley.

Oh, and by the way. If you're up at the lake and fishing slows down a bit, try a slip-bobber. It can really make a world of difference.

Chubbys and Jiggin Shads did not sustain through the two days of the tourny like they did pre-fishing. I've never seen fish wack'em like that without being tipped with SOME sort of bait. Todd had'em freakin' that Thrusday.

A big THANK YOU to Mr. Beckwith for glo red Angel Eyes though. Under a bobber, in open water, they can really put on a show when the fish get negative.

All I know is that I'm glad Todd and I started pinchin' them minnows in half. That and Buckshot Rattle spoons made a $1,000 worth of difference.

That's awesome... Good thinking Ripper...

I've always thought a torn fresh dead minnow is better then a live one anyday... Works in the spring too.
