      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 .

How's the fishing?

Recommended Posts

David Groenendal

I'm heading up tonight for a nice long weekend and am looking for any updates on how the fishing has been. Are the eyes still around 25 - 35 feet? What baits have been producing best lately? We were fishing a couple rock piles that were producing very well so I'm checking to see if their paterns have changed at all in the past week.

HI DAVID,

FISHING IS AWESOME, I HAD YESTERDAY OFF & FISHED WITH A COUPLE OF MY GOOD RETIRED BUDDIES, WE FISHED ALL SAND BAY AND HAD 4 WALLEYES IN THE SLOT, HAD A LIMIT OF 13 TO 16.75", AND RELEASED AROUND 15 SMALLER FISH. ALL FISH WERE CAUGHT 28 TO 35' WITH 4 FOOT LINDY'S, HOOKED WITH SHINNERS.

DID I SAY...I LOVE LIVING HERE LATELY???

SINCERELY,

FISHMEISTER

Fishmeister, it's good to hear that the fishing continues to be hot. I am headed for Woody's the last week of September and I can barely contain myself already. Keep the reports coming as I have already started to do my pre-trip scouting based on reports.

I am looking forward to stopping in and seeing you at Hardee's again and grabbing one of your excellent burgers. I have always been impressed with the service when I have stopped in and the food has always been great too.

Catch you later,

WINTERSE

Thanks for the info Fishmiester. Actually we'll be up there tomorrow but on the Canadian side on Redgut. Are the eyes still out on the reefs?

I fished Redgut yesterday mid day. The mid lake humps 30-32 FOW were active with eyes and smallies. Good luck.

Regards,

Wayne

Just got back from a 5 day trip up in the redgut area. Boated a lot of wally's, however only about 10 were in the slot. All the rest were under the slot. Even though we caught 269 fish (counted on new tally counter) this was the worst-as far as size and numbers that we have ever had. Usually considerably more in and above the slot. The only bonus is that the smallies and nice size crappies were going pretty good.

Was up 8/28-9/3 and had the same luck Wallabee had. Great #'s of fish but over all small. 5 fish in the 21" range and a few 17". Couldn't believe the number of 11-13" fish. Good to see for the future. Tried many different methods thinking the big fish were else where or looking for something different, but didn't discover it this time. All in all though, a tremendous time!

Sand Bay Sultan

I fish sand bay almost every day between 4:00 and 8:00pm today(9/15) the walleyes were in 20 to 24 feet, but the big ones were all in 22 feet. I used an orange flicker spinner (tiny spinner) a 3/8 ounce sinker and a night crawler trolled around a reef and between me and my girlfriend we used up 3 doz worms in 3 hours kept 8 walleyes between 13 and 16 1/2 inches. Released a 27 inch, a 28 inch, three 25 inch and to many little eyes to count also caught one 13 1/2 inch crappie

      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.

      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.
