      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'm normally a lake fisherman, but with the warm temps this week i've had to take a couple of trips to the river after work to wet a line. I've started around 5:15 each day and fished till about 6:30 when i really can't see what i'm doing anymore. I've been casting from shore in a small hole i've found near my house in monticello. Because of my rush to get out there after work, I haven't stopped to pick up live bait and try that yet, but i've tried everything else. Cranks, topwater lures, buzzbaits with gulp leech(proably not the best option this time of year), jighead with black shad gulp, and a mimic minnow. Have only managed to catch one with the mimic minnow. I know there are fish there cause they are jumping out of the water every couple of minutes. Any bait recommendations i could get would be very helpful with my limited experience with smallies. Just moved to the area last summer and am excited to get out there this spring on the boat and learn some more about the smallies in the area. Thanks for any help, and by the way, it is absolutely gorgeous down at the river with all of the wildlife right now. Tons of activity with ducks, geese, swans; gets a guy excited for the ND spring goose hunting.

I would go with a jig and minnow[fathead] ideally or a jig and power grub. Keep you presentation slow. Hope this works blush.gif

3-3 1/2 inch shallow cranks with a tight wobble or 3-4 inch suspending jerkbaits retrieved at a medium to medium slow speed was the ticket for me this past weekend.

I'm doing ok with a little black weighted fly called a clouser (just a wierd looking 1/16th oz jig with deer hair). Earlier in the winter chartruse was doing good too. I bet a mepps spinner would work.

The two lures I do the most damage with for smallmouth on the river are Tiny torpedo's and silver or copper small red eye's. I typically don't fish the river in february though....

Got a question, what is the season on the river, can you still fish for gamefish after the season closes this weekend?
