      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 .

Trout fishing this weekend?

Recommended Posts

nate larson

I am thinking about doing a little trout fishing this weeknd. Probably either go by Preston/Lanesboro or might head over to Whitewater. Has anyone been out lately? I am guessing the rivers are high and muddy. My best bet would probably be small streams. Let me know if anyone has any tips for these conditions. Also, if anyone wants to go with me please let me know. You can email me at larson_nate@hotmail.com.

Thanks,

Nate

That is the one nice thing about being newly single after 8 years. Nobody to tell me I can't go fishing or rip wheelies down an empty country road.

I'd join ya Nate, but I'm at home with the kids this Saturday while my wife's out of the house. Saturday should be a decent day, actually. I'd imagine many streams are getting into good shape since we didn't get the brunt of Wednesday night's rain.

Live bait is allowed during the winter season, btw. Barbless still required. The special regulations passed for some streams a couple years ago go into effect every April. Winter has its own special regulations.

Yeah sounds like Saturday should be a perfect day to get out. Too bad you are on babysitting duty. I am sure I will be having babysitting duty too in a few years so I better enjoy it now while I can.

Another quick question for you... What is the easiest way for me to join our local TU chapter? Could you email me some details at larson_nate@hotmail.com?

Just saw this, Nate. I'll drop you a line from home this weekend.

There's a fun, big project in the works for this summer, again on Trout Run. You'll have to make it down for that one too...hopefully there'll be fewer cow pies. laugh.gif

Well I made it out this afternoon for a few hours. I ended up catching about 10 fish (3 browns and 7 rainbows.) I used a silver vibrax spinner and also a silver and yellow panther martin. Had decent sucess with both. It was a good time and I had the streams all to myself. Streams were a little high and muddy but not bad. I ended up geting two pictures. I caught some that were bigger than these but wasn't able to juggle the camera and the fish. I am glad I made it today because it sounds like we are going to get a bunch of rain tonight.

Well I wasn't planning on fishing today but the nice weather convinced me. I fished the south branch of whitewater and it was the first time I have fished that branch. There were a few other people out fishing today but still plenty of room. I ended up catching 5 fish and probably walked a couple of miles. It always seems like a long walk back to the car. Probably because I keep wanting to see what is around the next bend. smile.gif The river looked to be in good shape. It was low enough and relatively clear. The only problem I noticed was all the trash! Everywhere I looked there was garbage on the stream bank. I must have picked up 6 pop cans and plenty of other misc. junk. I could have filled up several garbage bags full but didn't have any bags with. It makes me so mad! The other problem I noticed was the stream bank erosion. People need to keep in mind that the streams banks are very vulnerable right now. Try to stay away from the edge if possilble. Here are a few pics from my outing. The first two are nice sized browns that I caught. And the third pic shows some of the streamside erosion.

      wealthwood had1.5 last weekend, i saw no one out but 1 person on the whole west side last wsat afternoon. thi week the resorts on the north end and east are reporting decent ice. check with the resorts before you go out. id stay away from public accesses now and follow a staked road.
    • MrSchrute
      Have you fished out there before? Is it worth putting some time in on the ice? Thanks-
    • walleyewalby
      so went to go scope it out, 15 trucks on the northside, wheelers and houses out. Baxter is packed. last nights fresh snow is showing alot of active cracks too... i may wait a coujple days for blue and check out baxter instead.
    • Wicheesehead37
      Anyone know of the ice conditions in the oak narrows area?
    • blue gill hunter
      Has anyone heard of any ice reports on Big Marine?
    • dindunuffins
      I heard  6" or so around terrys..  id figure public access must be close to the same?
    • gimruis
      Dude, seriously just stay off the ice until its safer.  No fish is worth risking your life for.

       Ice is scary on blue. I was out last weekend fishing next to open water north end is kinda sketchy still my buddy has been there every day this week. Still cant get close to the points only 1 inch there. Thicker by north end but its all older ice from the first freeze lots of cracks. The bay to the east towards the points and whole south end were wide open last sunday. Had 4 inches right next to it we fished as close to the point as we could get. We were 40-50 ft from open water and we got one eye. But ive never been so scared on ice before it was cracking very badly very loud and could feel the ice shifting. The walk back to access in the dark had my heart pounding and i didnt tjink we would make it back without one uf us goin through but we did make it.
