      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 .

Consumption Advisories ????

I recently heard a rumor that it is not suggested to keep fish from the Mankato are due to high fecal matter in the water.

Does anyone have any information about this?

I checked the U of M website, department of health, the pollution control agency, and other Minnesota river basin monitoring agencies and did not find anything new.

I just got off the phone with my buddy that works for the PCA and he has heard nothing of this in the Mankato area.He did say if you are fishing there that you should wash your hands before you have a sandwich as the weater purity is not very good.

He knows nothing of a spill of any type in this area.

JP,

Now I suppose your gonna tell us to pitch our walleyes as well........just to be on the safe side.

I'll take my chances with Hansons UNDERGOO rinsing down the river.

I will let my wife know to advise the medics if I get violently ill after I consume my tasties.

Dtro, you better hand yours over to me for safe keeping and inspection.

What makes you think I have any? grin.gif

Not only that, but I seem to recall you taking home a limit the last time we were out. You saying they are gone already?

I know where there is more. wink.gif

Its not so much that the fish may be tainted as I will not be able to eat when the thought of Hanson in his "Fundaroos" crosses my mind.

I just got over seeing him trot across frozen Red Lake in his boxers last year.

What is up with Hanson, water and taking off his pants?

So I guess this means that those of us that spend more time on the rivers and eating fish from the rivers........are more likely to get ourselves pregnant.

At least being pregnant will give me a better excuse for my binge eating.

Or, maybe I am already pregnant. I sure hope I deliver soon. I went from 200 to 260 over the last few years and I knew there was a good explanation!!!!

      Did they ever find the two missing boaters from the incident a couple weeks ago?  Haven't seen anything...

      I agree with gimruis. Do not expect to see the same type of action or type of bite that you can get in the summer on open water! Generally the winter bite is short, ( a couple hours in the morning and a couple hours just as it is getting dark), especially if you are fishing for walleyes. Dark cloudy days can sometimes be the exception. What works one day may not work the next day also. I like to jig with a 1/8 oz. to 1/4 oz. spoon baited with a crappie minnow or just a minnow head on one of my lines. The other line is a plain hook set line with either a fathead minnow, shiner, pike sucker, or a rainbow chub as bait. Type of minnow that works best varies greatly depending upon where you are fishing! I like to set up close to rocks that drop into deeper water most of the time. Cliff

      anyone with any info as to how the ice conditions are up this way???????????

      While I can't offer you any sound advice on your success while ice fishing, I can tell you that very rarely is the consistent success you've had in open water going to be near as good as it is on ice.   And that is mostly because the water is bitter cold and fish are cold-blooded, meaning that their activity is only going to be as much as they need to survive.  Other things working against you are the inability to cover as much water as you could from a boat and not as many bait/lure options, in addition to being limited to a vertical style of fishing.  I'm not saying that you should give up completely, but just keep in mind that a variety of factors comparing one to the other could be why your success isn't sustained.

      I have owned a place on Lake Vermilion(WE) since 2011 and have absolutely enjoyed every visit and season on the lake.  Our knowledge of the lake and fishing patterns have grown tremendously.  However, this experience has not translated success onto the ice.  We catch some fish, but feel like we should be doing better.  Typically we use small gear 1/16th or 32nd jigs with minnows, Spoons with just a minnow head or when we go after panfish we'll use wax worms.  We fish all the same spots and don't catch nearly as big or many fish.  When we do catch most of our fish, it's typically on mud flats and we drill a lot of holes.  Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

      Ice out as far as I could see today, little wind and a cool night tonight. Some wind forecast tomorrow night. It should be fine though. Here is the report   20171119_153600.mp4
    • Fishing Frenzy
      Any ice starting to form again?
    • Dirtyfisheyes
      By the look of the forecast, single digit lows at night and no snow. Should it be safe to say that the first of December would be safe for snow machines? Itching to make the trip. Also any recommendations for lodging would be helpful
