      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 .

You need to have someone run the Grand Slam and fish it. Nothing better for me than beating the man himself. wink.gif

Seriously though if you need any help getting things together on the Grand Slam you know where to find me.

Hey Skippers Kid,

You ever make it out to the rivers last week? Anything?

I was thinking of checking out some rivers up the shore a ways to see if anything was doing...

Thanks for any updates you have.

my guess would be that any salmon still in the river would be in bad shape. I was out a week ago in WI and things were coming to a close. if you do give it a try i would head out to a bigger river such as the baptism or the arrowhead brule and you might have a shot at a steelie or a late arriving coho as well as some rotten kings and pinks. if there is nothing in the rivers, shore fishing for loopers is starting to pick up.

Ya that trout stamp money must go down south. What do they do with it up here? Loopers? The steelhead program aint doing anything.

I say we take all the trout stamp money and stock Lake Winnipeg/Erie/LOW walleyes in Lake Superior. wink.gif That way we will get a return anyways.

OUCH!

I suppose you guys would complain that your ice cream is too cold as well?

What do you suggest that Don and the Lake Superior Area do to "improve" your fishing? Stock, stock, and more stocking?

A Fisheries manager that tries to manage species through self-sustaining natural reproduction shouldn't be lambasted like that. I don't think anybody is going to argue that Salmon are fun to catch. But in this day and age of ruffe, gobies, zebra mussels, spiny waterfleas, sea lamprey, etc., managing Superior for natural reproduction of native fish is not a bad idea. As much fun as those Pacific Salmon are, having to rely on stocking is not a sustainable practice. The effects of development, urbanization, logging and mining far outpace the work done to restore fish habitat and reproduction.

If you guys could propose a fiscally and environmentally sound management for Lake Superior Fisheries I think we'd all be ears.

The Kings are fun to catch(caught a ton of them in the 80s) but they are really not a good fish for Lake Superior, not enough prey fish to support them. Look what happened to the smelt runs after they started planting them, they are almost non existant now. Lake Superior is just too cold infertile to support that kind of fish for any length of time.

I tend to think staying with the Natural base and Steelhead, which had worked for close to 100 years would be a better plan, maybe add a few Cohos just for some fall fun.

I just want to know where our money goes! Not much of a return for what is put in if ya ask me. What is Wi. doing with the stamp money in the Arrowhead Region?

My walleye comment was tongue in cheek.

The Lake Trout population is healthy and now that Lamprey have decreased in numbers they seem like they will hold their own naturally. (Knock on Wood)

The intro of Kings was a good idea at 1st but they eat too much and Lake Superior as said before doesnt have a big forage base like other Great Lakes. The return just doesnt seem to be there. Are they truely good for the lake?

I would like to see some sort of a forage base be introduced. Something that would be able to live in Lake Superior and reproduce naturally. I think something with a higher nutritional level than smelt.

As far as fishing goes Lake Superior is a Lake Trout Lake. Yes, you can at times find a few Kings and maybe a stray Steelhead but its mostly Lakers. Oh and if ya work real hard to can find the walleyes.

The Loopers are great in spring and fall and I think that needs to keep being worked on for shore fisherman.

I would like to see some work done on the Coho. Great eating little fish but not many around. Also I would like to see some work done on seeing what our walleye population does after they leave the St.Louis River in the Spring. Do they run South like we thought? Why so many on the North Shore the past few years? I know, good questions right? grin.gif

Im no biologist so Im not going there.

By the way I like my ice cream cold enough to be solid but not too cold so that it is rock hard. smirk.gif

      Picked up some nice crappie and a couple eater walleyes on Allouez Bay the other day before the rains. Trolled crawlers with one light split shot and others with bottom bouncers. I was surprised at how big the crappie were

      ripped out some old boards that were well past their prime on my boat.  Any recomendations on what to replace them with?  They looked to be treated plywood but wondering if getting something different would work better.  Such as a piece of 1 x 12 pine and throwing a few coats of polyurethane on it as well?  The boards I am talking about are for the benches.   Also, replacing the seats in there as well.  Previous i had the the vinyl foam seats.  When shopping around i am seeing a lot of the molded plastics chairs.  Any preference out there for durability?  Vinyl rips but wondering if the molded crack or break?   Thanks for any feed back!

      The flocks of geese are now flying over my house in the morning and evening, but when this happens Finn gets all jacked up. Like right now he is nudging me and running pawing at the window. A few minutes earlier when the first gaggle few over I was going to change the laundry and Finn raced down and sat by gun safe  whining.  Fishing reports have been great for crappies on the area lakes. Walleyes are not biting as well in lakes but when the rum is clearer that is the place to be. Bears any no quota hunters this might be your year to get a bear around here.  Deer seem to every where drive carefull.  Seeing some ducks flying around.  I have seen a few grouse and pheasants.

      I've been by a time or two trying to figure out which place is yours.   I was out on wakemup last night too.   Got nothing, on crawlers.  Started out at merry go round, went to "picnic island" (little island east/south of taylors).  rigged along edge of those two humps in like 18-25 feet.   Musky guys were coming so I turned.  They turned too, chunking baits in the vicinity of my boat.   Then some guys in a pontoon pulled up and anchored in front of me  and threw out bobbers.   Fished a while longer, and it was getting sort of dark so went home.   Weird.  I've been on those humps a bunch of times this year, and suddenly I get company.   And, even though it is a pretty big area they gravitated to where I was.  I'll be out today too, so if you need help with supervision, let me know.    But I will drive by to check out the new construction.

      Been getting a few on the weed line, early am when there's a little breeze, since the surface temps started coming down. That was about this month's full moon, for me. A very slow troll, fishing vertically, & just a 1/16 oz. jig.
