      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 .

I usually fish By monticello, from my limited catfish experience, its your typical channel catfishing. I use crawlers/cutbait/frogs in fast current at night. I have some stuff to do sunday morning/day but hopefully I can get out for the evening bite. I have a spot that was real good, but has been alittle slower as of late. The river is alot shallower/clearer than you are probably used to. If you are interested in some evenign fishing in the Moni area shoot me an email tipt @ gmail.com and we could meet up.

I might have to drive a little. I have fished below the dam there before, not real exciting. Maybe I can find some spot for some smallies or something. Not fussy, just want to do some fishing and some catching.

I will be on the road heading south by 0900 am.

Wiskers...

There are some great spots more towards Clearwater with deeper holes and woody debris close by... Been seeing many cats in the fast water but the bigger ones still hanging deeper during the day... drop me a line

(in profile), I should be able to point you to a couple areas...

Well I got back in one piece. First day was not good. Fished from shore all day and did not land a fish. Water was so very low and not knowing where I could access the river for good spots I did not have much luck. Luckly I ran into Mike, He was up for some fishing and he took me out in his LoPro. That was a blast. We got onto some fish but it was still a bit slow. Never the less, I was in a River pro, on the water and catching fish.. It does not get any better than that.

Thanks a million Mike. I owe ya one.

Check out the video running the rock rappids.

Sorry for the bouncy vids... It was not windy at all, all the white water you see and the waves are from boulders just below the surface of the water.. I would like to see even an outboard jet try that stretch with out tearing off the motor.

I have to tell ya, I cut out part of the video..... The darndest thing about racing down that river... The wild life is not scared of boats at all.... The ducks and geese do not even move.. they just sit there until you almost run over them and they are all over the river in big flocks... You can not avoid them. Wow that was wierd. All you would need is a RP and a dip net and you could save your self some big $$ on shot guns. LOL...

cool- small world (cliche I know)

too bad I didn't have any gear with me that day~ I used to fish the Beaver islands quite a bit back when I went to school at SCSU- best classes I ever skipped! even a bad day fishing is better than a good day (insert non-fishing activity here)!

      Thanks for the update cigarguy- were you lindy rigging?
    • CigarGuy
      Neighbor and I went out in Wakemup for a couple hours tonight and got a 18" and 19" and had a nice one come unbutton on the way in....Leaches and crawlers.  That's good for me!  20 - 34' off a break line.  Del, working on the last flight of the steps-was looking for you to stop by and help!

      I used lead core on Friday and had a ball catching walleyes of all sizes.  I started in the morning and stayed out until I just got tired in the afternoon.  I probably pulled in as many as 20 or so.  My formula was:  90 feet of line, 19-24 ft of water, #5 rattling split deep shad rap.  Silver color.  I kept it right at 2mph.  I also did much better when I pumped the rod in a regular cadence.  Keeping it in the rod holder didn't produce near the fish.

      Ace, I hope you enjoy your retirement.  I hired you one time and my boy and I had a good time.  I appreciate the hard work you did on putting us on fish.  Good Luck and maybe "Little Ace" can continue the family business some day!   Michael Theis

      These are legal aliens.  Glad you enjoyed your lunch.

      Trolling or casting jigs and spinners(silver or gold are best for pike IMO) near the weeds, in bays, etc, cranks, and top water buzz baits around weedy areas are how I get most of my pike. Use a leader. Orange jig heads with a sparkly yellow twister tail and a jumbo leech gets me more pike than any other method. Your mileage may vary.

      I had lunch there a couple of days ago. Great service and good food! I did not see any illegal type aliens there at that time!  Cliff
