      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 .

What is wrong with this walleye?

I caught this walleye last weekend. Froze it on the ice. Defrosted it in my refrigerator. And filleted it 48 hours after it was caught. There was definately something wrong with this fish. Has anyone ever seen anything like this before?

How big was the walleye? Looks like some nice cheekmeat there.

Thanks for the quick answer. I will report it. It was a 28.5" what a shame that it went to waste.

Happy to be of service! 28.5" is a very nice 'eye. Too bad it had to go to waste.

Another of many good reasons why fish this size are either made for the wall (if chosen) or released for someone else to enjoy the catch another time and not the frying pan.

I have to say I agree...I am not trying to look down on you for eating a 28.5 inch walleye because it is your legal right, but walleyes like that are not for eating.....the wall or the water! Sorry it went to waste, but you can look at it on the bright side, walleyes that old are not any good eating anyways. Once again, please don't take my opinion offensively. Good luck all.

Just to play devils advocate here, wasn't it a good thing that he did keep it? If he would have put it back and if it would have died, it is possible that it would have infected more fish. I understand what you are saying about letting the big one go or take you trophy and put it on the wall, but there is another side to it as well...just my 2 cents....

Summit, your saying its like shooting a management buck. I would agree, but at the same time its like shooting a management buck in June (don't shoot deer in June, I am just making a point). You don't really know what you have until its dead. In this case it was just luck that this one was to be taken out of the population. However, I strongly agree with GoogleEye. Leave the big ones in the lake unless you are going to mount them. Just my opinion, and definately not looking down on anyone that wants/needs the food. It is better than seeing a monster floating across the lake.

      Second the guide.  Fishing a lake in the north is totally different from fishing Mississippi or lake Zumbro or other lakes in the southern half of the state.  Otherwise you should look at the best place to launch your boat to be close to good fishing.  Rainy is a very big lake.. Ask in http://fishingminnesota.com/forums/forum/98-rainy-lake-fishing-reports-hunting-events/ the rainy lake forum.

      Unless they find a way to stop all the kinds of waterfowl from swimming, diving, eating and pooping from lake to lake. It's never going away.

      I saw this on the Wright County website today: http://www.wrightswcd.org/Water_Mana...e_species.html
      There's a link in Blue on the home page.


      Sounds like they are having a meeting about it on AUG 23. From talking to the DNR, I believe they didn't allow the initial dates for this to happen. Mostly because there was really no comment period on it. Sounds like they are gonna have it now. Guess if your against it, now's your chance to speak up. You can also send in written comments. Not sure exactly to who, at least I didn't see that part clearly. Maybe to Alicia O'Hare.


      Like others have said, I believe their ultimate goal is to have this implemented county wide at some point. When you look at the committee info, most groups are lake associations. Hopefully it still can be stopped. Here is the DNR person I called on this, she was helpful: Heidi Wolf - 651-259-5152

      Anyone else have new info on this?

      I resisted converting to braided lines. I liked my TrileneXL. Then, one day about four years ago I decided to spool up with fireline and at first I didn't think I could really feel much difference. Skeptical me, I always held on to that spool loaded with my trusty Trilene. One day I decided to put that mono back on and immediately could feel the difference. It felt like I was fishing with a rubber band. I went back to braided and haven't looked back.

      Last night a flock of geese buzzed the house and Finn went nuts! I think he wants to get out hunting as much as I do.

      Nice video Curt.  Looks like you are having way too much fun out there. Enjoy the time on the water.

      I will probably go out to my parents farm and set up in a pasture. The cattle have it mowed down pretty good. The geese seem tp pile in there pretty good. I won't hit it to hard, just get out a few times and hopefully get my son to get his first goose...
