      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 .

Redgut/Spawn Inlet

Where do you all stay when you are up in this area? Wanted to stay at "The Landing" but fairly spendy. I like to fish Spawn Inlet, Cliff Narrows area. Don't want to make a real long run if possible. Any areas to tent camp? Thanks.

HI WALLABEE,

THE LANDING, SPAWN INLET LODGE, SILVER MUSKIE LODGE., ARE ALL RIGHT THERE. MANY OF US LIVE IN THE FALLS, SO WE GO BY BOAT.

SINCERELY,

FISHMEISTER

Thanks F/M (Dave), Usually stay at Spawn, but Sam is full the wknd we want to go. Been staying at Spawn off and on for over 20 year. The landing is spendy-never called the Silver Muskie. Called a guy that had an ad in the Outdoor News about renting his place but he never calls back. How long of a run is it from the Falls or the place you rent up to Spawn Inlet? Plus is there a better place to park our trucks and trailers, the landing gets 8.00 per day. Don't want to sound cheap, but I always bring my son with me and it adds up fast. When we get a late start out of the cities and have stayed at the motel in town that you recommended.

Don't know what expenses are in staying any where particular, but you're looking at a 30 minute run from Ranier to Redgut (55 mph). If staying on US you'll need an over the border pass unless you want to check-in each trip.

there are 2 MNR landings in redgut which are free. One is on the left right before you hit the bears pass bridge. (about 20 miles from fort frances) The other is in crow rock. If you take the dryden road up about 5 miles it's on your right. This one would be about a 10 minute boat ride to spawn going 45-50mph.

Thanks for getting back to me. How safe is it at crow rock if we leave our trucks and trailers for 4 to 6 days. So it would be about 5 minutes or so to the Landing from crow rock? The Landing gets 8.00(us)per day to park-it's kinda nice not to worry about break-ins, however always, looking to lower the overall costs. Thanks again.

Yes.....good question...with the $$$ not going as far I am looking for camping situations as well. Usually stay at Taylor's cove and have good service but most of the time he is full. He does, however, have one room bunkhouses my in-laws stayed at this summer while we were in a cabin. I think they priced out at $30-40 a day. Not the greatest, but the necessaties.

Wallabee-

Personally I wouldnt keep a vehicle at crowrock that long. Ive never heard of any break ins up there but it is more remote. The redgut landing is a bit more visable and Ive seen vehicles there for well over a couple days without a problem....but like anything...you never know.

Got the map out. It looks like crowrock is a little too remote. The other one looks a little too far. It could be a long run if the wind wasn't in your favor. Thanks. Any other ideas?

I just talked to Neil at "The Landing" and he said he charges $30 a day for camping and you don't pay for parking. Personally for the $8.00 a day i think it is well worth it to park at "The Landing" even if you don't stay there. You know your vehicle will be safe, you are a short run to either Porters Inlet, or Spawn inlet and fishing around there has been FANTASTIC and the crappie bite is on right now. I have Limited out 3 days in a row in a matter of about 2 hours with no fish under 13 inches on the stringer with the biggest being 15 1/2 inches.

Actually, the bears pass landing is not too much further than crow rock and as wind goes Ive seen monster swells running the length of crowrock if the wind is from the west. Comming up from bears pass gives you the option to hug the shoreline.

Thanks all for geting back to me. I will be on the water in 3 days (Wed-labor day). Can't wait. Neil's getting my business. With the price of gas going up, I was looking for a way to save some money. Small price to pay for the piece of mind that my truck and trailer will be fine when it's time to go home. Hope I didn't jinx myself, bought a "tally counter", to keep correct nunbers:)

      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.
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      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.

      Ditto. I switched to a 3 inch shell in #2 shot. I missed a few wood ducks this morning but got one teal. Not bad for the WMA I was hunting. 2 ducks would be great. 3-4 like you won the lottery. Saw plenty of action but it was fast moving wood ducks out of range. Geese never showed. And you can't shoot trumpeter swans! There were plenty of those. Let my boy sleep in this morning. Tomorrow we'll hit the more pressured lake. I saw at least one person setting up on it this morning on my drive to the WMA. The nice thing about that - when you're almost certain you'll be the only one there - is that you can roll in not long before shooting time if it doesn't take you long to set up.
