      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 .

Big Northern

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?

Thursday's Post Bulliten "Catch of the week" has a picture of a guy with a 20# Northern taken from Silver Creek Reservoir.Hopefully, the guy released it after the 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.

      Lauren (Bubba) Sawatsky has a storage facility just north of Cook on 24.  Might give him a call. http://www.vermilionbarginginc.com/htmls/storage.html 218 666 5512

      There is a problem with the latency of satellite.  Makes loading pages slow.    I agree that a cell phone data plan/hotspot is your best bet.  I think Verizon on East end, and ATT on West end are the choices.   ATT has a tower near Cook, and on south shore of Frazier as mentioned.

      The crappie bite here has been very fussy, almost like ice fishing. So windy it's been tough to fish the way they seem to want it, most of the time.

      4 outfits out here right now.

      Fall fishing is so solid on Lake of the Woods right now. The fish may bite a different times everyday but they bite, and bite good, everyday. Had Pete Smith in the boat Thursday and it really couldn't have gone any better. Check it out, this weeks NCOR LOTW Fishing Report from Curt's NCOR Guide Service

      5.7% success in warm, breezy weather.  Hopefully that doubles for next weekend.  I think the weather will be a little cooler at least. I only heard 1 field report.  2 does and 2 fawns sighted. 1 in the morning and 3 in the evening.   I've heard area reports the deer are starting to move but not much for scrapes and such.  The leaves have been coming down and the woods opening up.  I've personally seen the deer start and stop using some areas as fall has set in.

      Hello, I'm from Chicago but I have a lot of family in Rochester. I come up for a week every few months and always do great fishing for Large mouth. I was hoping to find some spots to specifically target Pike that are within 30 mins of Rochester. I will be mainly shore fishing.  Thank you

      Got up to Bowstring again at Geigers Trails End Resort. Went up to get some crappies nd found them but again could not get one to bite out deep.  One spot they were 7 feet thick ! LOL   So we chased perch and did great. No 12 inchers but a lot of dandies. Not sure if I will get back up before ice.  Crappies should be great this winter.

      Where's the best place to get bait at Vermillion?? Is Hoodoo the best access to fish big bay? The girlfriend and I are going to come up for a day trip tomorrow...Thanks for any help.
