      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 .

The Fishing Continues...

Made it out to the river Sunday 11-12. I was accompanied by Randy R. Randy and I met when he ran his boat into mine several months ago. We have been fishing the same area for some time and finally got out together. The water temps have dropped to around 40 degrees and the Bass fishing has really slowed. Some fish did cooperate, a mixed bag of Pike, Wallye, Bass and a Catfish. This Big Ugly put up a good fight on 6lb test.

After checking a few of my spots with only some small pike and bass to show, we went to one or Randys spots. I was rewarded with two nice Walleyes, 20 and 24 inches.

This walleye is about as big as I have ever caught.

I always enjoy a day of fishing with a good angler, thanks for a good Sunday Matt.

By our warmer water river fishing standards, yesterday was slow, but some nice fish were caught. I definitely want a rematch grin.gif. I had a sub-par day personally, not able to get a hook into most of the hits I did get, but that seems to run in streaks. We talked about how you need to be there when the fish turn on, and yesterday confirmed that for me again. On tough fishing days, if you hang in there long enough the fish will eventually go on a breif but sometimes intense feeding period, but you have to be there when it happens. We caught most of our fish in about a one hour time frame, spending over 6 hours on the water.

I think one good hour of action is worth the wait!

As previosly stated by Randy, it really pays off to be in the right place at the right time. It also pays off to have the right guy to put you there, thanks Randy for putting me on the spot! The more you fish the better your chances are. Fishing with the right people will really up the learning curve.

As far as you all Catfishermen go, Ralph and Hanson, I only had the glove on because it was cold! Here is how to hold a Catfish, if you do it right you can hold the mouth open and keep it from biting you. Please see below blush.gif

That blood is from the fish, really. This works real well on Bass. Northerns and Musky, not so much.

      I went out for duck opener near Milaca and it was sweltering HOT.  It was even cloudy/drizzly for a portion of the morning and it was still unbearable.  The DNR needs to move all these major hunting season openers back a week.  Its pretty obvious that fall is getting hotter and hotter.  We got 6 ducks and 2 geese but so it was at least a somewhat decent hunt but that didn't make up for the fact that it was like hunting in Louisiana.

      +1 on the Smooth Moves.  I installed them on my 1860 Ranger last spring and couldn't be happier with the performance in big water.  Lot's of adjustment and they do a great job of soaking up the rough stuff.  They are a little bulky compared to the other options, but I like the fact that they rely on a mechanical adjustment rather than air.  It would be interesting to sample them side by side in the same boat to really see if one is smoother than the other.  A friend of mine has the Wave Pro and he is happy with that also.  I was close to getting the air wave, but I'm happy I went with the Smooth Moves and would buy them again over the other two.  Good luck with your decision.  No matter which way you go, your back will be happy!

      I am still fishing mostly lindys with minnows but getting a few on jig/minnows also. We boated 13 walleyes and 7 jumbo perch this morning. Largest walleye was 21" . Most came out of 24' to 38' depths, close to rocks. Cliff

      Fished Saturday morning and trolled my way a half dozen eyes including a fat 26” plus two giant smallmouth.  Went back out Saturday evening put the trolling rods down and went Jig rappin.  Caught another 6-7 fish including another nice 26+ that popped off as I fumbled to grab the net as it wallowed around next to the boat. Tricky bite for me.  Still managed my limit of nice 16” fish.  Fishing mainly rock transitions and rock structure in 16-22’ fow.   I will be back in two weeks for my final hurrah before heading west to the mountains.

      One goose and one woodie so far today.  And will probably be our total count.  Saw plenty of birds but in a new spot we didn't have dialed in until the end of the morning flights.
