      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 .

Last St.Louis River Open Water Report for 06

Recommended Posts

Northlander    72

Well not much to report. Hit the Barkers Island/Bay area today. Got out about noon and just got back. Needless to say I got it handed to me.

Trolling Bombers on the Channel edges only produced 1 small pike and a Ski that wasnt much bigger than the pike, maybe 30" or so.

Tossed out BOTH drift socks and drifted different jigs/plastics in several "Fishy" areas and depths for 2 hours and didnt get a nibble.

Went to the hot pond and got 1 fat ugly stinky cat and 2 nice 17-18" eyes.

Dropped out of the hot pond into the channel edges and drifted some jigs with not even a bite.

Coffee got cold and wind picked up so I called it a open water season.

Til next open water season guys. See ya on the ice.

Man I dont think I want to know. I cant buy a new Lund because they will only put those Black busted buggers on them now. Looks like I have to go win the Lotto and buy that dang Triton I saw at the boat show. Then I would have to build a new or another garage. Man I need to win that Lotto!!!

Maybe I have a long lost rich relative waiting to will me millions of dollars?

Oh well back to work tomorrow. frown.gif

Well, you can also put silver on the back of a Lund for next year without paying the premium for rerigging. In fact you can get it prerigged even for Honda. I was checking on a 18' fisherman with a 150 and 8 honda, this was my next step up but they eliminated the fisherman series for '07??????? Glad to hear that you had some action for your efforts, see ya on Fish.

Taking the Mrs up to Larsmont tomorrow night for an anniversary dinner prepared by Cheffrey, and licking my chops already grin.gif

I've been quietly mourning the loss of summer. I put the rig to bed last Friday jsut before it really began to rain on me. It wasn't fun. Steve at least you made it a little later into the year than I did. I thought I'd have a couple of Novembe outings, but I got a wild hair and sighted in the muzzloader last Saturday, guess I'll try to go shoot a deer now instead.

Saturday may have been my last trip out also. Tried the Moose Lake area for some largemouth but very little luck with only 2 fish. Water was around 38-39 degrees. Mild temps may keep a few lakes open this week so I may get one more weekend in but who knows.

      1st time ever I've seen zebra mussels in ottertail on west side   this SUCKS!!!!   had a red solo cup in the water... apparently they love RED.     at least 5 of them    it sucks

      From someone who grew up as a back reeling aficionado, I've learned to appreciate a quality drag on a reel.  It's the one thing I'll gladly pay for. Modern drag systems are so much better than they used to be.  Not taking advantage of them is leaving a lot of the value of a quality reel on the table.  Unused and wasted. So, is that the kind of opinion you were looking for?

      They are already established in OT.  Pulled docks at my sisters place with about 75% covered in zebes.  Wear shoes when your in the water.

      I noticed this spring that the higher end Shimano Stradic and others have eliminated the ability to back reel (no reverse) which I believe is a huge mistake, I don't like it!    any others have comments?

      Went up north grouse hunting it was fun. I must say having a dog makes it better.  This weekend is duck opener and I am jacked up for it.

      The public launch at The Landing on the west end stays open until the ice sets in, but they do pull the dock sometimes around the end of October / beginning of November.

      Just curious if people are finding fish moving into fall patterns yet or still finding them in more summer locations?  I've been finding good sized panfish in deeper water myself around more mid lake structure. Most of the lakes I've been on are still pretty green with algae and weeds.

      Captain Acorn, I use Gamagatu  octopus hooks. Size 4 for crawlers and size 2 for minnows. Red, black, chartreuse, and pink , mostly red and black. I use orange and green glow soft beads at times. (Worked today!) Cliff
