      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 .

Ok, I'm married now. Its great to be married, but I've basically missed a whole summer of fishing. And to top it all off, my phone finally croaked and I lost all your phone numbers. Anybody have any fall fishing plans yet?

Ben,

Cangrats Ben on getting married...what, you got a Honey-Do list a mile long now? Since my motor fried, my fishing has been very limited. Hopefully I'll have things running in a week. Would like to get out with you again on the river for some smallies, or float tube on lake X. Give me a call, 763-404-0891, we'll plan something. I'll probably be gone most of the weekend though. Have a safe holiday!

Ha thats funny...the "Honey Do" list is currenly long enough that I probably won't be doing any fishing this weekend anway. I was telling Cyberfish that I'm getting all pumped up for ice fishing, although perhaps its abit early yet. We'll have to get out and do some fall fishing; I'll give you a call.

Yeah I think so. I live in Roseville now, but I commute to work in Maple Grove. So after work this winter that puts me within striking distance of any lakes in Plymouth or even Sarah or Independence. There are many lakes between Maple Grove and Roseville off 694, and I would also like to check out White Bear Lake and Bald Eagle. I'm also not all too far from Chisago Lakes area, so I definitely have some exploring to do...

Yesterday I took a friend to the Crow River out by Rogers. It was uncharted territory and all we caught was a redhorse and one small bass. Water was rising and it looked sort of like coffee creamer, so that probably affected the fishing. First time out since the last week of July.

Carp,

I know this is short notice, but if you want to get out for a couple hours tonight, let me know. My boat situation is different (better) now.

Sorry Casey, I got your message abit late. You know I get off work in the northwestern suburbs, so If you want to hit the Mississippi or 'Tonka some night after work, I'd probably be game for it. Anything going on next week?

For weekdays, sept. either 11th or 15th would be best. If you want to get out on the river saturday afternoon/evening of the 16th, that would work too.

I am mostly musky hunting Mon thru Wed and occasional Friday night. Saturdays in the fall I plan to chase smallies and eyes on the river. BUt if you guys get into a hot non-tubing lake let me know. I'll drag the boat over and take you out.

Wow, I should've made it out! I ended up taking my brother out and doing some wade fishing on the Crow River near Rogers. Other than a cigar sized smallie, we caught diddly squat. It was sure nice to be out though. The funnest part of the outing was watching my bro try to wade across the river...knee deep, belly button, chin...I thought he was going to break out in a crawl stroke before he turned back.

      Hello, I'm from Chicago but I have a lot of family in Rochester. I come up for a week every few months and always do great fishing for Large mouth. I was hoping to find some spots to specifically target Pike that are within 30 mins of Rochester. I will be mainly shore fishing.  Thank you

      Got up to Bowstring again at Geigers Trails End Resort. Went up to get some crappies nd found them but again could not get one to bite out deep.  One spot they were 7 feet thick ! LOL   So we chased perch and did great. No 12 inchers but a lot of dandies. Not sure if I will get back up before ice.  Crappies should be great this winter.

      Where's the best place to get bait at Vermillion?? Is Hoodoo the best access to fish big bay? The girlfriend and I are going to come up for a day trip tomorrow...Thanks for any help.

      I believe that there is a campsite or picnic area in the bay just South of the S-Curve  located adjacent to the WMA, I believe that Green Herons and Blue Herons nest in the trees there! Cliff

      Hope everyone had a great summer season of fishing and otherwise, and here's to hoping the fall season is going well.  I'm planning to get some grouse hunting in while up in a couple weeks and noticed Pine Island has a WMA on it.  Figured if I had time, I can take a quick ride out to there and have fun walking around on an island WMA.  Does anyone have any input on difficulty of beaching a boat somewhere along the shoreline on the north or south side, if even possible?   Thanks for the help and advice this year from everyone I talked to on here.  Looking like I may miss out on hard water this year and will have to put cracking that nut off until next year.

      I have a number of family and friends fishing the river Thursday thru Sunday this week.  No reports yet.  I will pass them along as soon as i hear.

      Northwestern and central Minnesota have elevated fire danger due to sparse rain, high winds and lack of humidity. This means that open burning may be restricted in certain counties. The Department of Natural Resources urges Minnesotans to use caution while burning yard waste or leaf piles outdoors and to check the burning permit website for information.  “During fall, we know that residents and property owners will be taking care of leaf and brush piles,” said Casey McCoy, DNR wildfire prevention supervisor. “Piles can smolder undetected for several weeks under the right conditions. Windy, fall days can reignite these piles.” On average, Minnesota issues approximately 43,250 burn permits annually. When weather conditions warrant it, state fire team leaders may turn burning permits on or off. To determine whether burning is allowed, Minnesotans should regularly check their county burning restrictions. Residents may need to find alternatives to burning such as composting or hauling brush to a collection site or wait until it is safer to burn. “If you do decide to burn yard waste or leaf piles, do so when there is less wind,” said Linda Gormanson, burning permit coordinator. “Instead of burning your yard waste and potentially causing a wildfire, compost or chip your yard waste or bring it to a collection site.” Burning restrictions do not apply to campfires; they are still allowed. Clear an area around the campfire, watch it continuously and make sure it is out cold to the touch before leaving. Fire danger can change quickly. Check the Minnesota Incident Command System site https://goo.gl/W686km for fire behavior conditions. For questions about burning restrictions, check the DNR page at mndnr.gov/burnrestrictions or call your local Forestry office. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Lots of boats on the river daily here in LF now.  Select people are hitting good pods of fish and catching well.  Flows, though still Very swift, are slowing.  Fish are becoming a little more scattered, more fish are being caught away from shore and away from prominate structure. Minnows and tubes pulling most fish.  A few nice fish here and there most are falling in the 15-17 inch range. Good luck out there.
