      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 .

Shore Fishing at the U of M-Twin Cities?

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if anyone has any advice about shore fishing at the U of M-Twin Cities. I'm a student there and I would LOVE to be able to take some time out and fish every once and a while. With no boat, and not a lot of free time to travel to someone's cabin, I figure shore fishing around campus will be the way to go. Thanks for any help!

Hey man, I'm also a student at the U, and my roommate and I have had some decent luck so far. At the east river flats, we've had a few smallmouth (one around 15 inches), casting from where the old boat launch is. It's in view of the Wash Ave bridge.

If you go north, near Sanford Hall, make your way down to the river and we've pulled up a nice 4 lb pike and a 15 inch walleye, with a few channel cats. There's often other people fishing around that spot though.

Apparently there's a U of M hunting and fishing club, I was thinking of joining. It's at www.mnangling.com/hfc, if you're interested.

I fish just up river in the mill area and do quite well. Lots of Smallys and quite a few Pike. Use soft plastics that imitate minnows. Also, stickbaits work ok.

I was in the U of M hunting and fishing club for a while. I coordinated some campus recruiting and a couple fishing events. Overall I decided it was lame and did my own thing. I wouldn't waste my time. Good luck fishing though.

Theres lots of good fishing to be had down there. If it looks fishy, fish it.


You forgot to add if you see pug fishing, keep going. There either aren't any fish or I have put my hex on it by casting into the area. crazy.gif

I fish down in that area quite a bit.

This summer I had really good smallmouth

fishing down there, not just the usual

small ones but nice big ones. Lots of

19's 20's biggest was 21 1/4". Thats kind

of unusual but with all the small ones you

catch you'd think there would be some bigger

ones...... and there is. Carp fishings

great down there as well.

      Thanks for the update cigarguy- were you lindy rigging?
    • CigarGuy
      Neighbor and I went out in Wakemup for a couple hours tonight and got a 18" and 19" and had a nice one come unbutton on the way in....Leaches and crawlers.  That's good for me!  20 - 34' off a break line.  Del, working on the last flight of the steps-was looking for you to stop by and help!

      I used lead core on Friday and had a ball catching walleyes of all sizes.  I started in the morning and stayed out until I just got tired in the afternoon.  I probably pulled in as many as 20 or so.  My formula was:  90 feet of line, 19-24 ft of water, #5 rattling split deep shad rap.  Silver color.  I kept it right at 2mph.  I also did much better when I pumped the rod in a regular cadence.  Keeping it in the rod holder didn't produce near the fish.

      Ace, I hope you enjoy your retirement.  I hired you one time and my boy and I had a good time.  I appreciate the hard work you did on putting us on fish.  Good Luck and maybe "Little Ace" can continue the family business some day!   Michael Theis

      These are legal aliens.  Glad you enjoyed your lunch.

      Trolling or casting jigs and spinners(silver or gold are best for pike IMO) near the weeds, in bays, etc, cranks, and top water buzz baits around weedy areas are how I get most of my pike. Use a leader. Orange jig heads with a sparkly yellow twister tail and a jumbo leech gets me more pike than any other method. Your mileage may vary.

      I had lunch there a couple of days ago. Great service and good food! I did not see any illegal type aliens there at that time!  Cliff
