      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 .

Looking for some ideas from you guys of where to do some weekend morning hunting, pass or out of a boat. Looking at a 60 mile radius around the North Metro.

I’m not looking for anyone’s secret spot, just a place to get out a few more times during the season with my brother in law.

Please reply to this post or email me @ Shooter26@netzero.net

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Jay

Well shooter26 it looks like no one has given you a hint so here it is and this aint no secret but later in the year this lake is ok to hunt not too many people out it is called Pelican Lake just south of Monticello, it is an excellant waterfowl habitat lake the DNR has an access on the northwest end most of it is probably froze by now, early in the year I wouldnt even bother, many years ago when I was new to the area I went scouting to see where people go hunting, I usually scout on opening weekend because there is allways too many hunters out but that way I can see where people hunt, anyway when I went there on that opener I counted about 70 rigs around the main landing but later in the year especially after deer opener you might be the only one to four parties out there, good luck.

Shooter,

no one really likes to answer these, but I will. Diamond lake in Dayton is a OK spot. You will need a boat, can be very busy sometimes. There some good spots down by lakeville and jorden. WMA's down there, you find them on the DNR web site under rec. compass. Also, car load avery is ok but busy. There is a wma out in french lake township. It's near buffalo. I used to hunt it, no one is ever there. pretty good spot. also can find it on the dnr's web site. there are also a few lakes in north anoka and some by wiconia that are pretty good also. finally, crooked (creek, road river ?) wma just outside of st. franis is good, but can be very busy. good luck

      Let us know how it goes. I have a cabin on Linwood just off Whiteface. Be nice to find good spots in the area, seeing as for whatever reason I never fish Linwood...

      What a morning jigging on one of the best, fastest bites of the summer for me Tuesday morning of this week.  I had a guide trip but they cancelled that morning and I almost stayed on shore. Since I had the boat in the water and everything was set I went out by myself to check out a couple of spots.  I didnt get very far

       Anyone have any good news or been up there lately waz up  over the Fourth of July did OK nothing to brag about a few walleyes  or any other lakes around the area not looking for hotspots or nothing trying to catch a few panties

      Low water continues to be the issue on the Red. Below the dams still remains sketchy so use boats at your own risk.  The fishing remains stable, similar to last week in that the fish are spread out but in the holes in the middle of the river.  Short 15-20 minute sits on spots keeping the bait fresh looking for the active catfish.
        Bait is still heavy to frogs and frozen suckers with goldeyes working some but it seems that frog and sucker are the best.  As water cools down I suspect fresh sucker will come into play as well.

      I used to have many fields but some guides came in and pay for the fields. I am down to 3 farms but they don't have any small grains this year. So I am going to take the early season off. As I know the geese will use some ponds to rest and I have access to them so I will wait until the regular season to pick off a few geese.

      get a guide for a day
