      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 .

Upper Red lake Fishing Report February 27th , 2007

North shore area

PERCH!!!!! Anglers are finding 9-11 inch perch consistently with 12” fish mixed in the bag. Nine feet of water were the deeper mud bottom turns to gravel/sand bottom along the north shore appears to be the key in locating these fish. As for presentation smaller spoons such as the Custom Jigs Slender Spoons or smaller Forage Minnows rigged with a dropper have been working well as the JB Lures Gem-N-Eye. Tip these lures with a partial minnow or entire smaller minnow. Anglers are also having success with fish in neutral moods using smaller plastic presentations such as Little Atom Nuggies or plastic blood worms on smaller jigs worked against the bottom.

The Crappie bite has taken a temporary slow down due the recent weather conditions and fresh snow cover across the lake. Anglers that have had success are discovering that the Red Lake Crappie is working back into it’s normal habits. Scattered schools throughout the day with major flurries of activity during dusk and several hours after. Red lake has seen a fair amount of snow that has changed the crappies feeding patterns and moods. Once these fish get their bearings and adjust to having the lights off it will be just in time for best ice fishing of the year that comes every March. Crappies have also increased their appetite and are hitting larger targets. Buckshot Spoons, Demons and even smaller Salmo Chubby Darters are putting out fish. Yes I said Salmo Chubby Darters, I watched two guys limit out using chrome/silver colored Chubby Darters when all else failed.

As the Walleye season came to a close the anglers that braved the snow and wind all reported great walleye fishing the last few days of season. Guess “You should have been here last week”. laugh.gif

Have fun and enjoy the outdoors.

      This year?   It is new this year.... Apparently a lot of businesses are having trouble hiring seasonal employees.

      I have only been there a few times, but that doesn't make any sense based on my visits.

      I am headed to MN for my annual trip and wanted to target pike on leech. For the past 5-6 years I have been kayaking smaller lakes around the area but now I am back to having a decent boat for bigger waters. Used to fish the east side flats in Headquarters and Boy bay prior to my kayak days. Usual came earlier in the year as well. Bucktails on weedlines still my best bet or do you think crankbaits are the way to go just off weedlines? Better spots than others? Should be there a few days before / after Labor Day.

        I believe the  problem here is a hull with rocker.   At different trim and speed the hull does just that, rocks.   Normally you'd trim in, throttle up and once on plane, throttle back to cruise speed and adjust the trim out.    To be trimmed all in at WOT or even cruising speed would make must hulls plow water at the bow.   In the case with rocker you usually find the porpoise stops when you increase speed.   The fin might be enough to lift the transom up and stabilize it.   Let us know what you do and how it works.

      Went and tried a new spot... 3 snacky cats. One of them took my rod straight into the river and I had to dive in after it. Good times.

      I use the Daiwa ct r also have 2 of them best out there in my opinion.
    • FishinCT
      Pretty good for me from Monday through Wednesday. Found them from 14-24ft depending on the spot but most fish came from under 20ft. Trust the electronics and motor around til you find a good school. They are hitting pretty well when you find them
