      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 .

Being the weather has cooled off and the water temp dropped has anybody been out to Union? When I had time to go fishing Union was the best during deer hunting.

Hey Fish Toys, it's Ryan. Are you reminiscing about those big 'eyes you guys used to have to bust through the ice to catch out there this time of year? Would love to get up there and try it out now, but been real busy down here in Perham. Dad and I were out on Sarah a couple times toward the end of Sept./early Oct. and caught a bunch of hammer handle pike. The lunker eluded us this summer.

Are you gettin' cranked up on the saws yet?

I've been out on Big Pine Lake just north of Perham 3 times with the first time out last saturday afternoon. Caught about 20 perch that day in about 5 FOW. Didn't dare go any deeper since about 50 feet beyond where I was set up I stuck my saw through with one poke.

Went out last night in about 13-15 FOW. There was a good 7-8 inches of ice, but no fish. Guys running around all over on 4 wheelers. These cold nights have really thickened the ice.

I'm coming up this weekend and am taking Austin and Logan out this Saturday. I'm thinking about going to Sarah. Since there are so many pike out there, I think they'd get a kick out of chasing some tip-ups. Plus it's early in the seaso and they should be active. Spose to be in the upper 30s so it should be a good day to get out. I'll use my two-man as a warming house.

Have you heard any reports on how the ice is on Sarah?

Ryan,

The last I heard, about 7" on Sarah, probably more now since that was last weekends report.

I wouldn't doubt a person will see a few people out fishing this weekend, sound like some nice temps coming.

We'll be hunting one last weekend, maybe see ya around.

Mike:

Thanks for the update on the ice conditions. Where's the best place to buy bait up in that area now? Been a while since I've bought any for fishing around there. I'm planning to use shiners. I don't really want to buy them here and take them along with me on the drive up from Perham.

What are you hunting for this weekend?

I would imagine Fuel N Things should have what you need, if not, call Hamre's or Wertish.

Last weekend for muzzleloader season, Paul, Dad, Shannon and I will be out hunting, Jon might be around on Sunday. Lots of movement in the last few days, could be a good weekend. Next weekend it's Pheasants, then it's Walleye and Pike after that.

Let us know how you guys do out there, kids should have some fun. Better get uncle out there or else we'll have to strip him of his handle Fish Toys! grin.gif

Thanks for the tip on bait.

Didn't realize muzzleloader season went so late. Hope you guys knock down a big one this weekend. Assume by Walleye and Pike you mean LOW?

Yeah, I'm looking forward to getting out tomorrow. Went out for a couple hours after work today and caught about 30-40 perch and a 20-inch walleye that fell off just as I got it out of the hole. Didn't matter anyway, the lake had a slot that restricts keeping anything between 18-26 in.

I'll be sure to let you know how we do. I mostly hope we get some action for the kids to enjoy! Maybe all this chatter will pull Uncle Fish out of the barn:)

good to hear from you fish. I haven't posted too much lately since I've been traveling quite a bit during the last few weeks. I pay attention to both this post and the perham post.

Yeah, when dad came down the other day, it was a little slow, but all depends upon what species you're targeting. Dad was after pike, we were after big perch on a flat on Otter Tail. Caught several nice perch between 8-10 inches and one small walleye. Kept a few perch for good eats. I was out on a little lake outside Perham yesterday with tip-ups for pike. Had six flags in about 2.5 hours. Landed 3 fish with the biggest coming in at 30-inches/8 lbs. Fun day.

      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.
