      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 heard this from a few boats over while fishing the Rainy River this last weekend. Thought I would pass it on.

"Only in Minnesota can you have 5 deer and 4 fish". I got a chuckle out of it.

Thats funny and sad.

It shows the DNR only cares about quality over quantity when it comes to the precious walleyes...

I dont think the DNR is worried about managing the Walleye Herd like they are the deer herd gorilla.

Actually, the 4 fish limit was selected because that was the lowest creel limit that was acceptable by anglers, however since it wouldn't bring us down to our sustainable harvest level we had to incorporate the 19.5 - 28 inch protected slot.

As for the deer, there definately isn't a shortage up there. I counted at least 50 in the fields from Birchdale to Clementson opening afternoon.

I really believe that it truly is the experience and not the amount of fillets you bring home. Same with deerhunting if you dont bring a deer home it was a "bad" trip? I dont think so!

My gripe wouldn't be the tight fish limit, I'm all for it on more lakes, but my idea of DNR "management" is that they just like reporting RECORD numbers and don't care about quality deer or protecting the buck to doe ratio by pushing the season back a couple weeks so it doesn't fall right on the prime rut like Wisconsin or Iowa. I see way too many baskets biting the bullet because they're horny.

Anyway who cares, I thought the original post was funny. Since you can shoot five deer yourself in one day(although we all know its your yearly) and only four walleyes in one day.

My 2cents

The reason I believe this slot and limit was agreed to is that it simply keeps the fishery the way it always has been-AWESOME. Remember the DNR don't know exactly the total numbers of fish present in the lake, just an educated guess.

And don't forget that the local towns need the fishery to stay GREAT. It brings in alot of buisness. I know if I lived up there (Big hopes) I would have voted for the slot and limit..jut my 2 cents.

      The wife and I were up to L O W  for whole week. Great weather, good fishing and fun time. Was able to fish 7 days split up between Morris point, Long point and the river. For me Long point was the better bite. May have seen a couple members of outdoors Mn on Tuesday out of LP. Let me know if I'm right. Also met member from Wisc. at Morris point( real good guy) Anyway didn't seem to matter much what color jig caught them on every color with frozen shiner. Some days were better then others but always caught fish. Ate several meals of fish and brought fish home. Also caught a 14 in perch that I brought into taxidermist. Plan on going back at least one more time this fall . ( Too good not to).

      Got some grouse and saw some nice coveys. The biggest was 6 birds but found couple groups of 5. That is always fun.
    • eyeguy 54
      we mainly jigged fatheads in front of their mouths. 2 weeks ago also and tried a few different times over 3 days this trip. water is still crazy low so I don't think many boats will be using access. Also tried a couple different plastics and some gulp. Probably ready to go crazy up there soon.  Last year at this time it was really good. Might get there once more before ice time but not sure.

      Been thinking about breaking out the Jiggin Raps, might have to give that a shot. It's been too crowded out there this weekend with MEA going on.

      Sounds good! May an oversized deer with obscenely large antlers find its way to you!  
    • DLD24
      Well the weather was pretty crappy but the fish were biting...Had to sort through but kept some for dinner. Caught a variety today, eyes,jumbos,crappie and a few smallies... rigging on or next to rocks worked best for us.

      hummm, hadn't heard a thing?
