      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 .

I must have accidentally deleted your e-mail address. Anyway, I have monday and tuesday off next week, wondering if you would like to head to the river? If not, could you e-mail me your address again and give me a report on what's going on there? I might go it alone. I would not be able to make it this weekend, as I have to work, but maybe next?

Next weekend Nov 11 is a FM get together on Pool 4. I am bumming a ride with another FMer so I won't be taking my boat down. Some of the Pro Staff are loooking for an open seat if you want to haul yours down that day. Check the Pool 4 forum.I can get out on Tonka Monday and Tuesday night but nothing during the day sorry. I haven't been out on Tonka for over 3 weeks -been fishing elsewhere but it's time to do some eye hunting. Email is markkstanley@msn.com.

Hey Casey,

Have you hit up any of those big fall walleyes yet?

Carpie-boy! How is life treating you these days? Any "young carps" on the way? haha! I haven't been fishing for quite awhile, so no, I haven't hit my late fall walleye spot yet, althought the weather was prime a couple times. Would like to hit it at least once before the boat goes bye for the winter. (I might just do it tonight) I suppose you are anxious to hit first ice then?

Nope no young carpies just yet. I haven't been out all that much since summer. I'd say we're more than overdue to do some fishing sometime. I watched my In Fisherman ice fishing video last night and that got me all fired up. I might just try firing up the auger this weekend to see if it will start.

Just don't bring it to bed with you. You're wife might not approve! tongue.gif

Carp, Cyberfish knows (and I don't) of a spot for some slab river crappies this time of year, maybe we'll have to get you out there some saturday?

Mark, I have some questions for you regarding the river, so watch your e-mail.

Cybermaniac,

Nice slabbers!

Mark, I have all day monday off, and was planning on doing something then. Can you get out during the day tomorrow?

I suppose you gotta work during the day? Don't know about tomorrow night, though.

Mark,

Monday, Tuesday and wednesday evenings don't look good. I can still get out for a few hours monday morning. Since the temps are a bit mild for the river, I thought I would poke around the on the lake we fished this spring and see if I can locate some 1st ice spots. Tell me if I am wrong on the temp/river thing.

Pool 2 is really putting out walleyes right now. I've been planning to hit that lake too and maybe Sarah but that will be the 18th for me unless weather is too nice to pass up on the big pond.

I'd love to but I am just getting back from Utah that Thursday and it won't fly with the significant other. Next year for sure. Think we can get out this Sat? Saw some guys on Sarah Sunday. I have Sat day and Friday night clear right now.

About what time would you like to go out? Where would you like to go? I've got the itch bad...

If we go out to "big bass" lake before sunrise, I'm sure the gills will be going, and there is a good possibility we will run into the crappies. With that lake though, the fish shut down an hour or two after sunrise. Nada.

Another option would be the "other" lake that has some very nice gills in it. However, this lake will need to be explored since early ice locations are unknown on this lake.

We could also meet up with Juggs and Cyberfish at a certain location an hour away that has big crappies in it...I can always find a way to fish a few more hours smile.gif

Just let me know what sounds appealing and doable to you both...

Casey and Ben--We're good to go for Jan. 6th and 7th. If anybody wants to take Friday off and get up there early let me know. I'm definitely interested. The resort owners say there isn't a check-in time since there won't be anyone in the cabin before us so we can use the cabin any time Friday.

Great! What lake is it on, anyway? I think I will have that friday off, so I can hook up with you early and scout around. If Mitch (my brother) comes, we may have to take two vehicles though, that way I can bring up my portable and all of our crap. Any idea how much it will cost me? Mitch is unemployed right now, so I told him I would pick up his tab.

It's Wildwood Resort on Bass Lake in Cohasset. You can go to their website (wildwoodresort.net) and check out our cabin (#9) and fish pics. The cost is $399 for the weekend divided by six is about $67 apiece. We might pick up another guy or two though. I'll put in for Friday off and we'll make it a full day.

      Is it always impossible to get a hold of Jeff?? It took me like 8 calls to get a hold of him, brought my boat down after I got a hold of him. I told him I was hoping to use it this weekend for one last trip...I've called him multiple times for an update and he never answers... Seems odd for a business.

      You know it’s a good day when you’re thumb looks like that from lipping the fish! What sizes are you getting right now, Rick?

      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.

      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.
