      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 .

Caught 29" and 31" walleyes, about 15 minutes apart. Trying to figure how to post the pic's. I followed the instructions on the pic's thread, obviously missing something. Will keep trying.

What part of the river? Downsteam of St Paul or Dam/Confluence area?

I was out yesterday above the confluence. We were only out from 2-5pm or so and managed 6 eyes and 10 fat striped bass. The biggest eye was 20".

We were out in my dad's new glass boat, the river makes him nervous, so we didnt hit some of my favorite rocky shorelines.

Considering the time we were out and the bright sun, I think the bite would be pretty good.

The flow was decent (compared to the last few months), the leaves are starting to come down and litter the water. Water temps are just below 70 degrees.

It is a great time of year to be on the river!

Jig & minnow. We were downstream from the Hardman ave. launch. 6 lb. mono. 1/4 oz. jig and a minnow. Vertical jigging. I did'nt even bring any artificials at all. Wish I had though, the whities were crashing the surface like crazy. I have never marked or seen on the surface, so many baitfish in my life. This was only my second time down there. Usually fish Little Falls area, but I'm thinking of spending some more time in pool 2. Good fishing guy's!

pike11,I'd have to say a couple miles or so. Since I'm not too familiar to that area, I"ll try to describe. I know there were some island's just down stream from us, and they were full of seagull's and pelican's. Was fishing a bar off of one of the points of a small bay. Sorry this is so vague. This is the best I can do. Good luck down there.

Rivernut,

I could post a couple pictures for you if you would like! Its really pretty easy to do. Just go to image shack and it will bring you into the hosting site. I download all my pics to the computer right from the camera and save it in my documents. When you get into the host site hit browse and it bring you into your documents. Select the picture you wish to use and be sure to check the little box below the browse option to resize the pic for the forums.

It was about 10ft. Glow fireball jig and a fathead minnow. We were fishing a sandbar back in a bay. Still excited about that day. Probably the biggest 'eye I'll ever see. But who know's, there are a lot bigger fish down there to be had. Good luck. Get one of those 35"ers.

      The public launch at The Landing on the west end stays open until the ice sets in, but they do pull the dock sometimes around the end of October / beginning of November.

      Just curious if people are finding fish moving into fall patterns yet or still finding them in more summer locations?  I've been finding good sized panfish in deeper water myself around more mid lake structure. Most of the lakes I've been on are still pretty green with algae and weeds.

      Captain Acorn, I use Gamagatu  octopus hooks. Size 4 for crawlers and size 2 for minnows. Red, black, chartreuse, and pink , mostly red and black. I use orange and green glow soft beads at times. (Worked today!) Cliff

For us the only thing that was working leadcore with cranks 18-24fow looks of eaters but not one over 18" couldn't get the digging raps rigs or jog and minnow to go but I'm sure it's not far off caught about half of mine on cranks when I was turning and didn't seem to matter weather the pole was on the inside or outside 2.2 2.4 was our speed flicker shads and deep runner raps #5 and 7. Cliff what style and size of hook do u use for your minnow rigs? Any beads used?

      This weekend near grand marais on thursday and Friday the no see ems were out. A few skeets but once it cooled down the no see ems were gone. Fished a lake that known for horrible bugs and it was not bad.

      I would trade my crossbow for normal bow any day

      That's correct.  For now.

      We did well today from 1-4pm on an underwater point. Finally found some fish in a semi-sheltered area. Last few days have been tough to control the small light boat with all the wind. Most caught on pink jigs in 21-30ft.  Cliff I did try the circle hook lindy today with the big minnow and nailed the first bite I had. Next 2 bites grabbed it hard but dropped it. Work in progress!
