      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

the_mighty_kasey

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.

      First ice fishing trip today out of morson ontario .  Fishing  was a little slow got a few walleyes and a couple of crappies . Lost what little  snow we had today made the ice really  slippery. Found 9 to 11 inches of ice.

      Dang Curt, did you take my suggestion on a drone?  Great report.

      Well, I have to pay for registration on my boat trailer to run it on the road, and the boat to run it on the lake, why shouldn't wheel houses?  I guess I don't feel bad for the wheel house guys.

      No not yesterday. 2 weeks ago when we had that first cold spell I went out on Baxter, Blue and Long and checked the ice. They were locked up but only had 1-2" inches so didn't venture out too far. Baxter probably was walkable but had open water on the back end so figured I stay off. Last Sunday I went and checked them out after that warm rainy week we had and they had open water, so yesterday I skipped checking them and went farther north. But I did notice most lakes were locked up on the drive up there. Cant wait for the local lakes to get some decent ice!

      Wondering if big sandy is clear enough to spear fish when the ice comes on? Never done it before and would like to give it a try
    • monstermoose78
      Bryan did you check any lakes around me?
    • Bryan P
      Had to scratch the ice fishing itch, so I drove up north to the Mille Lacs lake area and found a smaller lake with 4-5" of ice. Punch a few holes and found some crappies and sunnies. Nothing big but was fun time and a great way to start my ice seaso n! Bring on the ice!  Check out the video: https://youtu.be/BTTv_G07PB8
