      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 .

Saturday on the Zumbro

Recommended Posts

My friend Eric and I braved the elements yesterday and canoed from the Green bridge to Zumbro falls. We got on the water at 7:30 am and at first I thought it was going to be a miserable day because it was storming and the wind was blowing. To my surprise, the weather cleared off and we caught a ton of fish. We each caught 30+ smallies, several white bass, and a sauger. The largest smallie was 18" and weighed 2.5 lbs. The sauger was almost 2 lbs. Most of the fish were caught on a crayfish rattletrap and a jig and twister tail.

This was the first time that I have canoed that stretch of river and I was shocked. The water was very clean and clear. Most of my canoeing has taken place closer to Rochester where the river tends to be dirty.

Here are a couple smallies that my friend caught. I will post some more pics later.

Nice work Kasey!!! I love the look of those dark river fish.

Did you spot any pike/muskie on the trip?

Yeah, we saw two dandy northern pike or muskie but they were not interested in our baits. I am hoping to get out there one more time before the weather gets too miserable.

Nice report Kasey! Let me know if you go again. Maybe I could tag along. We got a canoe and a small pond prowler.

Is anybody else having trouble seeing the pictures? All I get is the red x thing.

If you right click the red X you get a menu chose properties and it should give you the address to the pictures copy the address and paste it in your address bar and hit enter. you should see the picture. Then just hit the back button on the browser and it should show up in the post.

Same for me, no pictures visable. By the way, how long does that canoe trip take?

We put in at 7:30 am and took out at 6 pm. I think it is nine river miles. We brought along an anchor so we could fish every hole.

I am able to see the pics this morning. Is there something that I did incorrectly? I uploaded my photos to Kodak photo gallery and then copied the address here. Do I need to do anything else?

You can right click on the red X and select Show Picture and that worked for me.

I don't know why they will not show right away.

Nice day on the water. What fun. Thanks for sharing.

      Did well this morning on big bay with gold spinners. 24-26 feet off the edge of a reef. Decided since they were biting we'd try the west end to see if we could catch some big fish. Put up a big zero out there. Guess they behave a bit different from end to end.  On a small reef out west had a guy pull up on us, throw a marker right on the fish and camp out right there. Kind of tough to fish spinners when someone does that. What is the etiquette on this lake when someone does that? Just fish where you want even if you run right up on them or in between them and the marker? I see the thousand dollar  depthfinder in the back of the boat, just mark a waypoint and keep the marker in the boat man. Really grinds my gears. Whoops...sorry for the rant   Never had that happen on the east end though

      Coming up next weekend to pull up the docks for the last time. Yup, my brother-in-laws folks sold their place on Frazer Bay. They owned the beautiful place just west of the public boat landing.They are in their 80's and are going to stay put at their place on Arizona. Been coming up for 20 years and now I won't have a free place to vacation at. Going to have to do some surfing for rentals I guess. Anyways, how has the walleye fishing been? Guess the weather will be quite a bit cooler next week.  Thanks for all the help over the years!

      Not at all a typical fall this year; more like a July lately. When the weather cools down next week fish will again start to set up in their cold weather locations. The last two weeks I have found fish (walleyes) along thick green cabbage and coontail edges,  deep basin transitions along steep breaks, and also suspended over deep water chasing forage.  One thing that remains constant during this time of year, regardless of temp., is that the days are getting shorter and the weeds are dying. Key in on the remaining green weeds, if your targeting shallow fish, and utilize your electronics to find schools of baitfish in deep water, either free roaming basins, or just off steep breaks. Lots of patterns going on right now that are putting fish in the boat. HAVE FUN!

      Tomorrow is the big day for duck hunters!! May you all get up early and find your spot filled with ducks.

        Fall is very nearby and things are going the way they should.  Fishing is good, it is too windy and the water is cooling down quickly.....On this weeks report and important bit on our very own Aquatic Invasive Species......Enjoy it!
