      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 .

Fargo Boys, where you at???

Recommended Posts

ivegottabite

Just wondering where all the Fargo boys are at? I got out Saturday with the misses and we caught around a half dozen or so cats. Biggest were 2 at 9.5lbs, so nothing huge. We were using cut sucker for bait. The fish did seem to be on the finicky side, but we hooked up on a few.

Scoot, have you been out lately?

Workin' the cat addiction pretty good I see Lauren. grin.gif

We'll have to get you down to the cities one of these days and spend a couple nights hunting flatheads. Then you'll know what shaky knees and adrenaline is all about. When the clicker goes, you don't know if its a 10 pounder or if you're setting the hook into something you can't turn.

If its any consolation, the channel cat bite was really finicky Saturday night in the cities as well.

nooner-sounds like you've been hitting the same stretch as me. i have been out pretty sporadically though. might be getting out here later in the week. if you see a guy in a old red lund with a 25 johnny on the back, don't be afraid to introduce yourself.

i'm always looking for a fishing partner in the boat as well.

hanson-i would really enjoy tangling with one of those green monsters down your way. just might have to line something up, don't know if it will happen this season though crazy.gif i've been itchin to get to gf lately too, but it just hasn't worked out there either.

We were out north of moorhead friday and saturday and we found pretty finicky fish as well. We did catch some fish with one 17lber and 2 snappers. We tried sucker and goldeye which were biting pretty good. If you see my black ranger please stop for a cool one and visit.

Kermits are HOT guys. I put 3 doz in the kittys choppers on jigs in 2 hours. They stompped them hard......(It ain't easy being Green...Eh).

Kirmits outdid everything else for me on this end. No walleye on the same spots...just yet...but soon I think they will be chowing down Kirmits as well.

Now to find enough hoppers to fill them hungry mouths, that is the trick.

Thanks for the update on me, WalleyeGod. Yep, I had to go to Australia for work for a little while- pretty rough! grin.gif

I had gotten out a few times before I left- been doing good. A buddy of mine has been doing really well over the past week. Tougher bite by day and much better in the evening and night. Like Ed said, froggies have been the ticket for him too.

I haven't done well with it, but I know Ed knocks em pretty good with standup jigs and frogs this time of year (as he said). Good for both walleyes and cats. I've scraped up a few walleyes with this technique in the fall. Man, you don't know how hard a walleye can hit until they smoke a frog on a short line! Kaaboooom! Speaking of this, Ed, if you want to get out and do a little of this, give me a shout. I haven't seen or heard from you in a while...

Scoot, welcome back their Matey. I hope you didn't leave Ross down under by himself. He is the original IP man you

know. Any Roo sightings ? They have walleyes, catfish or muskie in Australia?

I'm afraid we did leave Ross Down Under. I think he gets back on Sat. I hope the trip home goes better for him than me- wow! That's one killer of a ride home. Took me a couple days to come out of my coma.

Unfortunately no walleyes, smallies, or muskies. Lots of baramundi (whatever the heck that is- but it tastes good). No roo sitings, but I saw bats as big as bald eagles (believe it or not, I'm serious on that one). Saw cookabura, crocs, koala, and a dozen other cool looking critters I have no idea what they are. Lots of fun!

The Croc Hunter had to be the big news I suspect. It rained over the holiday weekend here, which was a good thing/bad thing. Had lawn seeding to do on one hand but it was nice to get the flow going on the red some. Do you have the website for Lockport flow?

Yes, I suspect you do to? Not sure what to expect this fall up there. Not sure if I'll be there to make a difference anyway...

      WARNING a buddy was on  MELISSA and was aiming towards the crappie hole in the NE Corner/First break to fish out there last night.  He was checking ice and was having 10" of ice then hit 3"!  Please be careful out there.  Needless to say he turned around and went back to the access.

      Best use I can think of for a selfie stick. Great fish.

      I will second what Icehawk said.... some good lakes around you. Briggs chain is close, some very nice fish in that system. I tend to fish fairly shallow(under 10ft) most of the time 6-8 right in or on the edge of the weeds for the gills.

      Eyeguy and I are going to be out today if you would like to hook up for a bit... #320 2675909,  shoot me a text

      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.
