      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 .

Actually i think that the 2nd will work for me now, only difference is I'll have to bring Xplorer Jr. along that day. Looks like I'll have to try and find a good perch hole to keep him busy (tho the camera also keeps him pretty entertained if its slow). Bring on the ice!

Hey Guys,

This last week was a bluer with deer season going on. The 2nd of December will work for me. That is the weekend of the St. Paul Ice Fishing Show. Is anyone planning on going down to the cities on Sunday or maybe even Friday evening? I'll be heading to the lake from my house this year, no cabin needed for me thanks.

Take care,

Tom (BD110)

      I have a number of family and friends fishing the river Thursday thru Sunday this week.  No reports yet.  I will pass them along as soon as i hear.

      Northwestern and central Minnesota have elevated fire danger due to sparse rain, high winds and lack of humidity. This means that open burning may be restricted in certain counties. The Department of Natural Resources urges Minnesotans to use caution while burning yard waste or leaf piles outdoors and to check the burning permit website for information.  “During fall, we know that residents and property owners will be taking care of leaf and brush piles,” said Casey McCoy, DNR wildfire prevention supervisor. “Piles can smolder undetected for several weeks under the right conditions. Windy, fall days can reignite these piles.” On average, Minnesota issues approximately 43,250 burn permits annually. When weather conditions warrant it, state fire team leaders may turn burning permits on or off. To determine whether burning is allowed, Minnesotans should regularly check their county burning restrictions. Residents may need to find alternatives to burning such as composting or hauling brush to a collection site or wait until it is safer to burn. “If you do decide to burn yard waste or leaf piles, do so when there is less wind,” said Linda Gormanson, burning permit coordinator. “Instead of burning your yard waste and potentially causing a wildfire, compost or chip your yard waste or bring it to a collection site.” Burning restrictions do not apply to campfires; they are still allowed. Clear an area around the campfire, watch it continuously and make sure it is out cold to the touch before leaving. Fire danger can change quickly. Check the Minnesota Incident Command System site https://goo.gl/W686km for fire behavior conditions. For questions about burning restrictions, check the DNR page at mndnr.gov/burnrestrictions or call your local Forestry office. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Lots of boats on the river daily here in LF now.  Select people are hitting good pods of fish and catching well.  Flows, though still Very swift, are slowing.  Fish are becoming a little more scattered, more fish are being caught away from shore and away from prominate structure. Minnows and tubes pulling most fish.  A few nice fish here and there most are falling in the 15-17 inch range. Good luck out there.

      Anyone in Camp this first season? Give us your personal report, us second hunt hunters are curious!!? First day report is 650 hunters hunted Thursday, Harvesting 37 deer. Doesnt sound to bad.  Didn't hear of any large bucks yet. Good luck to all.

      Rivers are so under fished in this state.  People seem to gravitate towards lakes all the time and avoid rivers but the reality is that rivers, large and small, have awesome fishing.

      same results here lots of fish but had to sort through them for keepers. How bout them jumbo perch mixed in though wow.  I actually was catching quite a few smallmouth deeper as well. I had good luck with gulp alive pink shine 4" minnows too seem to catch bigger fish

      PSU, Lots of smaller walleyes mixed in with the keeper sized fish at most spots. A few spots do seem to have a larger percentage of keeper sized fish though. Looks very good for the next couple of years! Cliff
    • PSU
      Lot's of walleyes to be had, but most for me seem to be smaller (8-10 inches)

      I too use my AT and T hot spot, works great!!
