      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,

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.

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.

      I've been fishing all my life, but I've only recently started seriously catfishing. I've discovered a spot near my home on the Minnesota river where the current comes to a still near a small, no longer active dam where there are rocks and tons of baitfish, which I assume should be a good spot for big flatheads. I've fished this spot a few days now and have only successfully pulled out a small flathead of maybe 5 or 6 pounds on a medium sized live sucker about a foot below a bobber. For your experienced catters, what's the best approach for big cats this time of year? Do you prefer live bait or cut bait? When using cut bait are heads or filets better? Since MN only allows one rod out should I be focusing my bait near the bottom of the river or a couple feet under a bobber? I tend to fish between 7pm-10pm although I'd like to try more late night fishing. Thanks for any suggestions!

      Had similar issues.  I was up for three weeks, each week it was a different set of boats encroaching.  I don't think you can do to much about the one week fishermen. They are in a panic to find fish and when the see one go in the boat, look out. One time,  I was looping in and out of a small spot picked up nice fish and this guy comes in right on that spot and starts jigging.  I couldn't even get back to it.  He would have never know it was there.  I just leave and find more fish.  
    • RoosterMan
      Definitely that time of year again.  Load the boat full of kids and put the raps out and be prepared to catch a lot of fish.  Only gets better from here.  Pic of my son and his cousin and their limits.  Good memories being made.

      When archery deer season opens Saturday, Sept. 16, mandatory testing for chronic wasting disease and restrictions on moving deer carcasses begins again in southeastern Minnesota’s CWD management zone, deer permit area 603.  “With archery deer season approaching, hunters are encouraged to plan ahead and be aware of the testing that will be required and the specifics about when they can and can’t move carcasses out of the CWD zone,” said Lou Cornicelli, wildlife research manager for the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. Archery hunters in deer permit area (DPA) 603 will be required to submit the head from all adult deer 1 year old or older so lymph nodes can be tested for CWD. Hunters cannot remove the carcass or carcass remains from the CWD zone until a negative test result is reported. Carcass movement restrictions do allow hunters to immediately transport out of the zone quarters or other deer pieces without spinal column parts; boned-out meat; and antlers with a skull plate that is free of brain matter. Hunters should check page 65 of the 2017 Minnesota Hunting and Trapping Regulations Handbook for additional information. “Archery deer hunters also should check the DNR website for the DPA boundary map,” Cornicelli said. “As a reminder, the CWD management zone was created from DPAs 347 and 348, so hunters need to be mindful of what area they’re hunting.” Hunters are required to register their deer. DNR will allow phone and Internet registration during the archery season in the CWD zone. The system will be monitored for compliance and may be turned off if needed. Mandatory testing and carcass movement restrictions will remain in effect for area 603 throughout deer seasons for archery, firearm, muzzleloader and any late season hunts. Head collection boxes will be located in: Chatfield: Magnum Sports, 1 1st St., 507-867-4399. Preston: DNR area forestry office, 912 Houston St., 507-765-2740. Lanesboro: DNR area fisheries office, 23789 Grosbeak Rd., 507-467-2442. Wykoff: Goodies and Gas, 104 E Front St., 507-352-2421. Harmony: Oak Meadow Meats, 50 9th St., 507-886-6328 Archery hunters should do the following: Field dress (gut) deer as normal. Register deer via phone, internet or walk-in big game registration station. If harvest occurs late in the day, sample (head) submission and registration do not have to occur on the same day. If the deer will be mounted, a video showing how to properly cape your deer is available at bitly.com/capeadeer. Remove the head, leaving at least 4 inches of neck attached. Hunters can take meat out of the zone immediately but the carcass (head with brain and spinal column) cannot be moved outside deer permit area 603 until a negative test result is received so hunters must: Make arrangements to refrigerate the carcass before the deer is processed; Cut deer into quarters or other pieces; or Bone-out the meat. Ensure no spinal column or brain matter is included with the meat or on the antlers. Properly dispose of carcass remains. There will be a dumpster at the DNR forestry office in Preston for hunters who don’t have a way to dispose of remains. The Preston dumpster is being provided as a courtesy for deer carcass disposal only. It will be removed if people attempt to process deer there or use the dumpster for trash disposal. Bring the entire head of deer to one of five head box collection sites. Each collection box has specific instructions on how to properly submit the head for sampling. Put heads in the plastic bags provided. Use the maps provided at each box to mark an “X” where the deer was harvested. Submit this map with sample. Samples during the archery season will be submitted for testing on Mondays and Thursdays. It may take up to four business days for test results to be available.  CWD test results can be searched using a nine-digit MDNR number online at www.mndnr.gov/cwdcheck. Deer hunters should regularly check the DNR’s CWD website at mndnr.gov/cwd for the most recent information. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
