      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 .

I may show up, but I don't think I'll be competing. I'll have a couple 5yr. olds in tow and one of them has never fished before.

My directions may be a bit messed up, but isn't the fire station on the West side of Silver Lake? I won't be able to make it, but want to make sure those that do go to the right spot.

Thanks Andy,

Your right. I've made the change above.

We will meet in the park where the goose feeders are on the West side of the lake at 7:45. After that, everybody is free to take off and go to their "hot spot". Weigh-ins will be at the same place as registration.

I'll work on posting the results tonight. I was fortunate enough to grab the first place winnings with 4 crapps (2 white, 2 black) and 4 sunfish.

My 2.13lb carp took big fish as well.

I think Dan-o has to be the hands down favorite tonight. I saw him Sat. driving up and down between Hammond and Zum. Falls scouting.

Word of advice for folks...with all the high water the banks can be kinda dicey so be careful when getting close to land fish. Long handled nets are recommended and maybe even waders could be used. My bets are that somebody comes back either real wet or real muddy.

All I was doing was making room for more people. Clearing brush and picking up garbage. The one place I have in mind we call the Long Hole. It will accomodate 6-8 people pretty easy. You guys are welcome to toss a line in up there with me if ya want.

Sounds like a great place to start. I'll likely join you.

Yep, Dan has to be a favorite for this event. He spends lots of time on the ZR and knows it well. Plus he nearly lives right on it, so that helps.

Been there, done both. I've got the long handled net loaded.

Hi Guys,

How did things go last night? I was unable to make it but might try that stretch of the Zumbro this weekend for some rough fish fun. Any bait / techniques work better than others? Thanks.

Well, Tyler should have the results up soon but from what I can recall there were about 10 people maybe a few more than that. The biggest was a 4.6 something and it wasn't by me. I caught at least a dozen but nothing over 3.5 so I never even got to place.

Good times though. Tylers net was funny, Droid going skunkie for most the night, and then some kid getting into the double digits and winds up winning it. Way to go Alex! laugh.gif

Techniches, a crawler on a baitholder #4 with a sliding sinker stopped at about 18" up. Current seams worked the best. Just on the edges of the calm pool and current edge.

Good times! Fished w/ three buddies, and I think we landed 16 fish w/ most over 3lbs. I personally caught a couple in the twelve inch range that made me wish I had my cooler. I've been wanting to try and smoke some (in the smoker) and I wanted to slice a couple up for cut bait. Thanks Tyler! Looking forward to the Root River event. I've never fished it so it'll be a good time.

UPLR Pictures and Results

Or next event is Monday April 16th at Lake Zumbro. This will be our first open water event on the Zumbro and they are calling for 51 degree's high temp. Sounds like a nice day in the boat to me.

      The public launch at The Landing on the west end stays open until the ice sets in, but they do pull the dock sometimes around the end of October / beginning of November.

      Just curious if people are finding fish moving into fall patterns yet or still finding them in more summer locations?  I've been finding good sized panfish in deeper water myself around more mid lake structure. Most of the lakes I've been on are still pretty green with algae and weeds.

      Captain Acorn, I use Gamagatu  octopus hooks. Size 4 for crawlers and size 2 for minnows. Red, black, chartreuse, and pink , mostly red and black. I use orange and green glow soft beads at times. (Worked today!) Cliff

      This weekend near grand marais on thursday and Friday the no see ems were out. A few skeets but once it cooled down the no see ems were gone. Fished a lake that known for horrible bugs and it was not bad.

      That's correct.  For now.

      We did well today from 1-4pm on an underwater point. Finally found some fish in a semi-sheltered area. Last few days have been tough to control the small light boat with all the wind. Most caught on pink jigs in 21-30ft.  Cliff I did try the circle hook lindy today with the big minnow and nailed the first bite I had. Next 2 bites grabbed it hard but dropped it. Work in progress!
