      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 .

If I see one more picture of a guy holding a trophy Northern, caught out of Silver Creek I'm gonna puke. Don't get me wrong I'm happy he caught the fish but,THROW IT BACK!I know its a fish of a lifetime but have a camera or just measure it and you can get a replica made that looks exactly like your fish.

You know every time the P.B. publishes a picture like this there is gonna be 50 guys with big sucker minnows and tip-ups going after their trophy.Guys this is a small pond its not Lake Mille Lacs,it needs to be a catch and release only for the Northerns.Its time the DNR puts some lower limits on the area reservoirs so the bigger fish can be preserved

I'm not sure what you are referencing. I gather someone caught a northern out of that little pond and the paper published a picture?

why are you so quick to jump on the guys back for keeping a trophy pike? if the guy is not breaking the law then why not be happy for him. who knows he may have been fishing for 40 years and finially just got the one for the wall. i have not read the story or seen the pics but, for every trophy took out i would like to believe there are many more released.

Every time I hear someone say the words "Silver Creek" I think I'm gonna puke.

I actually caught a nice one yesterday on a little less controversial body of water. Believe it or not I was actually jigging for pike when I got her. Hopefully Tyler will be able to post it for me.

I agree with Res Dawg that there are going to have to be limitations on what is kept out there. I personally haven't fished there myself but once all the controvesy settles down it would be a nice place to go. I just hope all the decent size fish haven't been fished out by then like Kalmer has.

Nice fish Crickshop! I love seeing pictures of people holding up a big fish and its even better if they release it. The picture in the PB wouldn't bother me so much if it had been caught in a bigger lake but, our little ponds around here can only hold so many of the bigger preditor fish.once they're gone all you will end up with is a bunch of 5" sunnies and 6" perch.

A couple weeks ago I was with my brother when he picked up his replica of a 14 3/4" perch it looks every bit as good as the real thing and will last longer.

Couldn't have said it better myself.

Hey Matti, Fess up. Who actually caught that one for you? Ha ha!!

You'll have to come down to Winona some time yet this year. Fishing has been so-so but you know the beer is always good.

      OK thank you thinking about going up first week in September

      Low water continues to be the issue on the Red. Below the dams still remains sketchy so use boats at your own risk.  The fishing remains stable, similar to last week in that the fish are spread out but in the holes in the middle of the river.  Short 15-20 minute sits on spots keeping the bait fresh looking for the active catfish.
        Bait is still heavy to frogs and frozen suckers with goldeyes working some but it seems that frog and sucker are the best.  As water cools down I suspect fresh sucker will come into play as well.

      I used to have many fields but some guides came in and pay for the fields. I am down to 3 farms but they don't have any small grains this year. So I am going to take the early season off. As I know the geese will use some ponds to rest and I have access to them so I will wait until the regular season to pick off a few geese.

      get a guide for a day

      That's what I planned on doing while I bow hunted but wasn't sure since I got one in spring if I could get another. Thanks

      I was marking various things, but I didn't note a correlation between marking something and catching the walleye.  Also was catching smallies on the same reefs, although maybe at a little different depth.   In fact I was surprised when the walleye hit.  Likewise the other one the next evening.

      Eden prairie purgatory lake is full of carp. You can see them from the dock or the bridge.

          Orvis has some awesome tutorials on their web sites. They teach at whatever level you are in flyfishing. I've gone there many times. They've also got an awesome app with fishing reports including wwater conditions, fly selection and hw to fish it.       Check them out and good fishing.

      I didn't fish any walleye this weekend- only bass. I would fish Friday and Saturday mornings from 530-830 and caught half a dozen largies in the 3-4lb range on a spinner bait. I just got my Garmin fish finder with sideview which will hopefully help me better locate the walleyes. Del, were you marking fish as you'd go over them?
