      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 .

Last Thursday the sauger were hitting pretty well. I got mine on hair with meat, but I saw guys doing quite well on plastic as well. Blades were working for others. Guys are saying they are not suicidal yet, but the bite was pretty good.

Judging from the guys in the fish cleaning shack & the pails of entrails at Everts, the sauger fishing is pretty darn good down there right now. I was actually down there last night but we were targeting channel cats, and accidentally catching mud puppies. Weird!

Got on the water at about 11 am. on Sat. and headed up to the dam to rub paint with all the boats. My brother-in-law got a nice 16" sauger right away then nothing for a couple hours. Saw quite a few fish being caught then it slowed down. So we moved away from the crowd and marked fish in 17 feet of water. The key was not to move at all and get vertical. Pink or Chartruse hair jigs in 15-25 feet of water. We got into a few more and boated about 10 saugers and a couple eyes with 1 eye 18" and 1 sauger 20". Kept 7 for the table between 16-20". Not a bad day on the river.

When you guys are using hair, what size are you using to keep it vertical? 1/4, 3/8???

The wind was blowing down stream on Saturday. It took a 3/8 after sun up to stay vertical. If you had the anchor down (Which 37 people did) a 1/4 would do the trick. The fish were sitting in 3 spots on Saturday. You had to be willing to run paint in order to get at them. It was an ok bite but sure not what we are used to this time of year.

      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

      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

      Hey, I resemble that remark!!   Plus my wife only went fishing with me once the whole time that we have been married and she brought a book! I got her trained in right away. Sorry about your training problem!
