      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 .

Time of Day for Loopers/Steelhead?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I appreciate all the general advice that I am finding on fishing for loopers and/or stealhead. I and a buddy are contemplating coming up to the north shore for a day trip to try our hand at the loopers and/or steelhead as they begin to run. I do have a couple of specific questions that I'm hoping to get some answers to.

1) In planning for the trip, I am wondering if the bite typically follows the clock? For example is early morning or late afternoon better, or is the time of day not the most important factor.

2) When the fish start to run is it better to be on the stream or at the mouth of the stream on the lake?

3) If flyfishing, is it better to be on the stream or at the mouth?

Thanks for any advice to help this novice make the most of his short trip.

Karl

I dont stream fish or fly fish so Ill just tel ya how I have done with loopers. I have always had my best luck at 1st light or shortly after. Second would be the last hour of light. Of course wind plays a big part in this and if you get a nice chop you can catch them all day. When casting spoons for loopers you will get a few lakers and steelies in with them.

Time of year seems to be more of a factor with early spring being the best for me. Probably becauise Im chasing walleyes as soon as opener comes. Also deer season can be good fishing for loopers.

Oh and I always fish stream mouths or close to them. Unless its just a nice warm day and other spots are packed then I find a nice spot on the shore and try my luck away from the crowds.

I can tell you this the fish really get going when the river's warm up to 40 to 45 Degrease. The fish will bite all day long using mono, and yarn and sinkers to make sure you can feel the bottom on your drift. The river mouth is always a good place to drown a crawler or spawn or a looper bug under a bobber. I like to fish them in the river so I can cover more water and find more fish holding in different spots on the river and the view is always changing. If you email me your number I can call you when it gets going and where to fish and what you will need to catch the fish here email me at Tpfister@mac.com
