      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 .

Right, this is Brainerd Area forum, that doesn't mean it has to be about fishing.

Lot's of shooting going on, but I haven't hunted ducks in 10 years. There appears to be a decent number based purely on the shooting I have been hearing. Saw quite of few flocks of Mallards this morning. The woodies and teal are still sticking around. Co-workers did really well, shot 12 for 12 Sat and 10 for 12 Sun (lost 2). Mixed bag of birds.

Once the local ducks get pressured out of this area it can be tough to hunt unless you have private ponds or fields to hunt. The ducks around get conditioned to the point if they see dekes they head the other way. They always know where there safe around here it seems. You could hunt all morning and never see a bird and go to the Hole in day refuge and there will be a thousand ducks there. You can hunt some bigger water (whitefish chain, pelican) later in year for divers but that is about it. If you don't want to read about duck, don't hit the link!!!! If I don't want read about panfish reports on area lakes I simply don't click on them.

Thanks guys for the info!! I'm suprised to hear that the teal are still around...maybe not now after that strong north wind. I may have to head up there this weekend after all, if all else fails there is always grouse and even walleye. Are they biting...ooops...can I ask that?

WRONG! Check again. It says nothing about fishing, it is under the MN Regional Forum. It just so happens that the topics are dominated by fishing, but that doesn't mean it is only for fishing.

You sure like to stir crap up don't you. confused.gif Let it be.

Hey guys,

Was up last weekend, and got some ducks. Ringbills, a mallard and some teal. Not many. We scouted around a ton, and found that hardly any lakes had any ducks on them at all. The normal spots were all barren. Did see some by Big Rice Lake, but that is a given.

We heard some decent vollies of shooting on Sat morning, but Sunday was pretty darn quiet, from our guns as well. I am not heading back up there this weekend, as it just wasn't enough to get me excited to go again.

I hope you all find some ducks and have good luck! I am sticking around till migrants move in, and going to NoDak next weekend, and hope there is water there.

Good luck!

Anybody been out lately? There have been some bigger rafts of diver on the whitefish chain this past week, but the puddlers seem non-existant.

      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.
