      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 .

Fishing report

I'm hoping to make it up to Red next week. I was wondering how the fishing was. I'm probably going to fish primarily for Northerns, but will definitely take some time to fish walleyes. Are the crappies still slow?

Sounds like there has been some good success with pike. The walleye fishing has been good trolling with little joe type spinners. I had a couple of fishermen land 3 crappie on the south cribs last week but you have to fish them as if you were ice fishing.I have some guys out there today fishing for pike and we will see how they do.

Had some folks up to Red going for the eyes and taking some time for the pike on the calmer days..yesterday (Thursday) was a little wicked with winds at 17 mph and gusts to 25 made it a little rough fishing. Folks have been coming back with the two walleyes each doing a slow troll with a spinner tipped with a leech. For the pike, the best results our guests have had has been using daredevils. Hoping to get some time in on Red tomorrow and troll for some monsters, have had luck in the past using a white bucktail so will start off with that. Good luck to you and if you head up there let us know how you did!

Thanks for the reply. Went up last week with my 10 year old. He caught a nice 40 incher. You should have seen how big his eyes got when the gator came to the surface at the side of the boat. I could probably not fish another day this year and be satisfied after seeing that. Pretty cool. He caught a nice fish and I got to teach him about CNR. I doubt he'll forget that day for a long time. I know I won't. On a side note, I caught 39 incher, but it was by far the fattest northern I've seen taken from the lake. The gators are definitely healthy!

I am glad to hear that you are passing on CNR! There are just to many people around that have not figured out that our fisheries can be harmed. Sounds like you had a good time and great job to your son for landning a fish like that.

      Looking for some folks in the area. Have you guys ever fished Borden lake near Garrison? I fished Maple lake last week with a lot of small crappie caught.  I let them all go, biggest was 9". Fished few lakes in that area with no luck. Even went to my little honey home with little succes Looking take the GF out tomorrow morning.  Any ideas? Seen someone posted about crappie in Pearl. 
    • HoleHoppingGills
      I was out last Sunday and there was solid 3.5 black ice. It's been s week now so guessing around 6 inches in northeast bay.  All crappie I caught were small besides on 9 incher I let go.

      Pearl Lake has been lights out for crappies in that 10+ inch range this year, finally,  find 13-16 fow and then drill holes until you see suspended fish. When you find them I like a 1/10oz. Swedish pimple (silver/glow) with 2 waxies, keep it above the fish and they’ll come up for it.

      I heard reports Friday of 3-5 inches out of Bayport.

      I'm on vacation until January 2nd if anyone wants to meet up and go fishing let me know I've got all my own gear 95% of the time I fish alone. Willing to drive anywhere or help with gas or what ever. Going to try a local lake in the morning for some eyes and panfish unless someone has any other suggestions. Mostly a CPR guy but it's also nice to occasionally bring some home for the family.

      Still pheasant hunting and still seeing lots of birds!  Went out an afternoon this past week and saw about 75 in 2.5 hours.  Went home with my 3 roosters.  Everything is froze good now so its easy walking and there's fresh snow.

      Welcome to FM, Some lakes near you that are good and have some quality  are Ann,Knife and Fish to the East and the Briggs chain to the West.  Look for green vegetation or mud basin bug hatches for action. 
    • monstermoose78
      Sure helps to find them when you have some of the top panfish anglers around helping

      Good fish Rick way to find some quality fish in a highly pressured area. Takes skill to be able to accomplish that. Maybe run into you one of these days out there
