      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 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!!!!

      Here is the latest....it is changing quite a bit and the water is cooling off.  Check it out while you make your plan for Labor Day

      I have a few spots that I check but if you just go slow and keep your eye on the depth finder the schools of fish are scattered everywhere.  If you see fish, you will catch em

      After 4 days on a Rainy lake houseboat we managed a walleye fry 3 nights. They where on the deeper mid lake reefs which is no secret, but they wanted minnows. That was the hard part, finding bigger minnows. To my surprise I was able to land a few each afternoon on 5" plastic rigged. 2 boats, 6 people, 47 eyes where clicked biggest 24", smallest 6" and every stop in between. We did fish some bays and the pike were willing to play!city

      The OP was given the system by someone else who was having problems with it. @TNFL If the above statement is correct, try it on your system and see if the fuse blows.  The problem may have been on the other person's rig.   Is it worth contacting the manufacturer for tech help or sending in for testing/service?
    • Wheres_Walter
      Sunday and Monday we caught lots of 15-16" fish at 12-14 FOW.  All on Chartruese jigs with half a crawler.   A couple in the high teens and one 21" as well.  
    • Wanderer
      Leeches are somewhat seasonal and not as prevalent later in the open water season (now).  It's the nature of the bait. Vados would be my first call between the Cities and Mille Lacs but you could always try calling a few shops on the southern side of the lake.

      Back in the old days..... before I retired and we used to come up labor day, I used to fish steep breaks into deep water.  My favorite spot was the north/west tip of Schmidts Island.   There is a little flat than breaks into like 40 feet out in front, more or less, of the dock that goes with the little chalet style cabin.   There are probably other spots along that headolakes shore of the island that are good, so check it out with modern electronics.   I don't know if that area is still working or not.   Jigging raps might work there.  I used a rig with a pretty heavy sinker so I could tip toe over the rocks up and down the break.   Caught what was my PB walleye for a long time on that spot.   Neighbor got a 30 incher somewhere along there.  This is all historical, so maybe not much help anymore.  BTW I typically fished there in the evening.   Never really tried it during the day.
