      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 .

It also has gator rope locks in the back corners and front for anchors and drift bags. Boat is in good shape, motor runs great. It is a merc and they are all cold blooded at first, they have to warm up to run real good. I also put in a Aireator pump in the live well for keeping bait and fish alive with out running the fill pump.

2005 River Pro Jet boat, 175 hp inboard jet, fishing

Vehicle Description

HIGH PERFORMANCE JET BOAT FOR SERIOUS RIVER FISHERMEN

2005 River Pro Jet boat with a 175 Merc. Sport jet V6 oil injected. This boat is made of alumimun throughout. Hull is 3/16 thick and double hulled down the center. 17.6 long but mesures 19 feet from tip to end of rear deck. Shorlander trailer rated for 3,000 pounds. Bunk trailer. This boat was used for two summers. Works great and runs great. This boat can run through only inches of water. This is a Team River Pro guide boat. I use it for catfishing on many rivers near here. The only down side of owning a boat like this is stopping to get gas, Every one will want to talk to you about your boat. Add extra travel time to allow for bragging up your boat.

Hours on the motor is a very common question, and very hard to give an answer to. Catfishing is most of the time anchored fishing. Motor time is just drive time to and from. All I can tell you for sure is the motor runs great, works great and needs nothing but water to run in. The boat is in great shape and works awesome in rivers and smaller lakes. I had no troubel takeing this boat to large water such as Lake of the Woods. It is a flat bottom jet and it will be a much rougher ride on rough water. Easy clean up and maintenance, no winterizing needed, pull it out of the water fog it and park it.

As for delivery, if your serious about a river fishing boat and want to be riding in the best out there, contact me and we can see about delivery or meeting half way depending on your location or buyer pick up. I highly recomend that I demo the boat for the buyer due to the unique handling and performance of the boat.

I am a Pro-Staff with River Pro and I assure you these boats are top of the line and you will have a hard time finding a used River Pro boat out there. Most people keep them and run them until they wear them out, which is a very long time. This boat has a 9 degree hull and can manover just like a jetski, fishing, skiing, tubeing, and just playing are many of the uses for such a boat.

That’s RiverPro®. Built tough, these all-welded, all-aluminum fishing machines offer the ultimate in shallow water, Mercury® Jet Drive performance. There's only one reason they build RiverPro aluminum jet boats. To get you to the fish, wherever they go on the river. Shallow rocks. Skinny inlets. Stump-infested backwaters. There's no place they can hide. Check out our line of tough aluminum jet boats and see why serious river rats from North to South are buzzing about RiverPro. Want to know the secret behind RiverPro’s incredible strength and performance? Its called PST™ - Pre-Stress Technology™ and it’s what every RiverPro jet boat goes through before it ever hits the water. CAD designed and plasma-cut by computer, each hull component is subjected to a rigorous pre-stressing process before welding. The aluminum is precision-curved, stretched and pulled, resulting in up to 30% lighter weight, while maintaining superior strength and rigidity. While some aluminum boats rely on “foam sandwich” construction to support the hull, RiverPro’s pre-stressed, all-welded hulls deliver far better performance and durability as one integral unit. Stable. Solid. Hard-bellied, all-welded aluminum cat ‘n bass boats, powered by Mercury’s Sport Jet® drive that lets you fly over just inches of water.

Ok, I have to hop in on this one... This boat is nothing short of amazing! We went on a guided fishing trip with Whiskers, and after catching the fish all I wanted to do was ride around in the boat and cruise up and down the river!! We had a blast and this boat rocks! WOW I still can not believe how versatile this boat is. No need to worry about sunken logs, or an occasional shallow sandbar. If you have any doubt, have him take you for a ride! grin.gif

      Recreational netting for whitefish and tullibee (cisco) is anticipated to open on several Schedule I Lakes in the Grand Rapids fisheries work area beginning in late October, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. Schedule I Lakes, which are more susceptible to sudden changes that impact water temperatures, will be opened and closed on a 48-hour notice posted at lake accesses, other public places, and the DNR website. Schedule II Lakes, will open Nov. 3. Schedule I Lakes (48 hour notice) Anticipated opening dates are as follows: Friday, Oct. 27 through Sunday, Dec.3, for Deer (near Deer River), and Turtle (3.5 inch mesh). Friday, Nov. 3 through Sunday, Dec. 10, for Side and South Sturgeon (1.75 inch mesh). Friday, Nov. 10 through Sunday, Dec. 10, for Big Balsam and Nashwauk (1.75 inch mesh). Schedule II Lakes Lakes open to whitefish and cisco sport netting Friday, Nov. 3 through Sunday, Dec. 10: Bass (north basin). Ball Club. Bowstring*. Little Bowstring. Cut Foot Sioux*. Deer (near Effie). Grave. Jessie. Maple. Pokegama. Round (near Squaw Lake –1.75 inch mesh). Rush Island. Sand (near Max)*. Swan.  (1.75 inch mesh) Twin Lakes (near Marble). Winnibigoshish* and Little Winnibigoshish* (1.75 inch mesh). *Bowstring, Cut Foot Sioux, Sand, Winnibigoshish and Little Winnibigoshish are designated infested waters because of the presence of faucet snails or zebra mussels. Nets and equipment used in infested waters may not be used in any other waterbody unless they have been dried for ten days or frozen for two days. Fishing regulations require that: Netters purchase both a whitefish netting license and angling license. A person may use only one gill net, not exceeding 100 feet in length and 3 feet in width. One end of net must have a pole, stake, or buoy projecting at least two feet above the surface of the water or ice. Nets must have an identification tag attached near the first float of the end that is projecting from the surface of the water or ice. Identification tags must be a minimum of 2 ½ inches by 5/8 inch permanently bearing the name and address of the owner. Identification tags for marking nets are provided by the owner. Nets may not be set after sunset or raised before sunrise. All gill nets must be set and lifted by the licensee only. Anyone assisting in the taking of whitefish or ciscoes must have proper licensing. Nets must be tended at least once every 24 hours and all gamefish and non-target species must be immediately released from the net. A net may not be set in any water deeper than six feet. A net may not be set within 50 feet of another net. Minimum gill net mesh size shall be no less than 1-3/4 or 3-1/2 inch stretch measure depending on the lake (see full list of lake and size regulations online). Nets used in designated infested waters must be dried for a minimum of 10 days or frozen for 2 days before using in a different water body. Nets should be dried for 10 days or frozen for 2 before moving from any lake to another. Nets used in spiny water flea and/or zebra mussel infested waters should be not used in any other waterbody Nets should be transported in sealed container. Whitefish and ciscoes taken by sport gill-netting may not be bought or sold. Whitefish and ciscoes taken by sport gill-netting may not be used as bait. Within the Leech Lake Reservation boundaries, the possession limit for whitefish taken by sport gill-netting is 25, and the possession limit for ciscoes taken by sport gill-netting is 50. Net placement should not inhibit use of the lake by other boaters. About 700 people obtain special permits to net for whitefish-tullibee each year. The DNR bases netting schedules on expected water temperatures, fish abundance and vulnerability of game fish. As the water temperature cools, game fish head to deeper water and whitefish-tullibee come to shallow water for fall spawning.  Netting is allowed when there is little chance that game fish populations would be negatively impacted by recreational netting in shallow water. Find information about sport netting by lake, minimum mesh sizes, and fishing regulations at http://files.dnr.state.mn.us/rlp/regulations/fishing/whitefish-tullibee.pdf or contact the DNR’s Grand Rapids area office at 1201 East Highway 2, Grand Rapids, MN 55744, or call 218-328-8836.

      It seemed cheap to me for all the functionality.

      I think I'll give it a try today.  Looks like it could be windy, which can help a bit with the down river drift.   I might try to get out Sunday as well after the game.  But, I think it's time to start putting the summer toys away for the year.  Just not the boat yet.  Will keep that out for a another 2-3 weeks.  Will tell you how I do if I get out today.   Another thing I'll add.  I've fished above the SCSU dam a bit this time of year.  Always just went a bit north of the Wilson Park landing and pulled some cranks along the east banks.  Normally did pretty well. Would normally work all the way up past the Hospital.

            I was wondering if anybody that lives on the lake has Satellite Internet Service?  If you do I have a couple of questions-  Who is it through?  What does it cost for the applicable data plan you have?  Do you have any complaints, compliments, concerns about it.         I would like to sign up & do it but I don't want to regret having a 2 year commitment or similar & find out it is bad-horrible connection. Do you burn through the Data extremely fast?  We are up to the cabin almost every weekend April - October  & then every other through the winter so not being there enough isn't the issue just wanting to justify having it.

      250 bucks no thanks
    • Bobber221
      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
