      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 will go first:

Green chev extended cab long box with a Triton FS 190. White with black and red accents, Mecury motor, or the same truck with a crestliner fisher-something-or-other 1750? tan. Mercury motor. (neighbor's boat).

Yeah he barks but he whines more smirk.gif. Sometimes he whines so much that it annoys the crap out of me. And dont get him started on swimming. He would throw a stick in the water by himself, and go fetch it, just cuz he will get to go swimming.

usually put in at the Hudson launch... blue Yukon. My boat is a Monark King185 but I pulled off all the labels except the "185". Boat is tan/black with a 140 Suzuki. I'm either by myself or with my fishing buddy (son) and a friend or two of his.

18' Tracker Tundra with 135 Opti and a 9.9 Merc kicker. Kind of goldish in color being pulled by the "big black bus", a black Suburban. I'm sure glad the price of gas has come down a bit. Looking at getting into a new Lund 2010 but mama has veto'd that for now. Love the Tundra but the boat control is so much easier with a tiller.

'97 red F-250 reg. cab Powerstroke/ pulling a '84 T-14XL/ 82' 20 horse Johnson. Gotta love having more money in your tackle, rods/ reels, and electrnics than your whole boat is worth.

It's not the rig or the money or necessarily the equipment one has, as it is the knowledge one has of species and area to be fished!

10-4; if you have alot of that knowledge; you don't need any of that! Maybe just some boots, string, and saftey pin or 2. These warm temps make a guy want to get in the boat pretty bad; I can barely wait.

I have a black/grey alumacraft lunker with a 40 hp merc. 16 foot tiller model. Sometimes I have a white Lhasa apso with me. Don't laugh too much grin.gif, she has brought me good luck in the past though. She has been with me when I caught 2 of my biggest walleyes.

      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

      Thanks for chiming in and sharing how the river has been treating you lately. They sure are fun to catch. I am hoping to get out again this weekend for some more smallie action. Hopefully they are still near where I was able to find them last weekend....
    • Coleman
      I fish pretty much exclusively above the Sartell dam.  I normally try to hit it 2-3 times per week.  Over the last 3 weeks, I thought the fishing was down right ridiculous(even with the crazy high water) at times, 12-20 fish in a hour or two before sunset.  I found them right up on the bank, and of course in slower moving water.  There are a few spots north of the dam that are great places for high water.  Some larger areas where the water can swirl around and create backwash.  In fact, I'll point my boat down right and put spot lock on, because the water is flowing back up river, and just cast parallel with the bank.  Most of the time I'll throw a Scatter rap, then when I see a fish chasing bait, I'll throw out a wacky rig.   I went out last weekend to a spot I've been hitting, and the fish have diminished big time.  Caught 6 in a couple hours.  Then I went out last night, and caught one walleye.   So, with that in mind I figured they had to of gone to the deeper rock piles.  And, sure enough, I caught 2 just before sunset, then I headed in.   If you have SI, just drive down or up river and look for large groups of rock piles.  Go up river from them, and try and do a controlled drift over the rocks.  I normally use a jig and a tube.  And there's no mistaken them when they hit.   Even a few eyes mixed in every once in a while.

      Ditto. I switched to a 3 inch shell in #2 shot. I missed a few wood ducks this morning but got one teal. Not bad for the WMA I was hunting. 2 ducks would be great. 3-4 like you won the lottery. Saw plenty of action but it was fast moving wood ducks out of range. Geese never showed. And you can't shoot trumpeter swans! There were plenty of those. Let my boy sleep in this morning. Tomorrow we'll hit the more pressured lake. I saw at least one person setting up on it this morning on my drive to the WMA. The nice thing about that - when you're almost certain you'll be the only one there - is that you can roll in not long before shooting time if it doesn't take you long to set up.
    • Bigfatbert
      Hey Moose , sounds like some tough shooting as of late for you at those duckies . Just curious as to what choke you are using ?
    • Wakemup
      Has anyone ever stored with Oak Narrows Storage before? Need a spot to put a Polaris Ranger for the winter and thinking of calling them for a space, does anyone have any experience or feedback? Any other recommendations would be welcome. Need a 10x10 or 10x12 space likely.
      Thanks!
