      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.

The results for our first Sucker Run event are in.

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.

      I figured I would start up a new thread for us to use for the winter now that things are starting to set up and guys may be starting to creep out on the bays and smaller water.   I did some more poking around on Pike Bay this morning and I don't have anything much new to report. We've got less than an inch of fluffy snow on the ice and things healed up after the warm front this week. I worked my way from shore out into the middle of the bay and ice was relatively uniform between 5.25 and 5.5 inches of nice clear ice. Earlier this week I checked all landings on the Tower end and everything was iced up except for open water way out in Big Bay appearing to mostly be all West of Birch/Ely islands. Not sure if all the recent strong winds from North and South have changed that status though. I'm still sticking with my original guess of December 2 for my first trip off McKinley on 5 inches.   Good luck this winter to all and Be Safe!

      extended forecasts look good up north. We won't have fish-able ice in the metro until at least the 2nd weed in December assuming no dramatic temp changes. The big Expo is Dec1-3 but temps look promising ~1.5hrs north. I wonder if the ability to go fishing might impact the amount of traffic at the show!

      There's preliminary testing then if flagged it gets shipped to a lab I believe in CO to verify the results.
    • Chill62
      10 day forecast doesn't show anything with low temps below 15 degrees.  It might make ice but it wont be making it necessarily fast.

      Thanksgiving would be nice...but first week of December still works!   Rogers on Red is already allowing wheelers and sleds...no side by sides yet.

      A 30-foot-tall white spruce, selected as the state’s official Christmas tree, was cut down today in the General C.C. Andrews State Forest, near Willow River.  The tree will be set up at the governor’s residence, 1006 Summit Ave., St. Paul, around 9 a.m., Monday, Nov. 20. The tree will be lit Monday, Nov. 27. DNR staff and the Conservation Corps of Minnesota cut the tree on the Friday before Thanksgiving each year from one of 59 state forests. However, the search for just the right tree begins months before. DNR foresters keep an eye out for a tall tree that’s nicely shaped and well filled out. It also needs to be in a location where it will not be damaged when dropped and then easily pulled out and loaded onto a trailer. Minnesota’s state forests provide clean air and water, recreational opportunities, wildlife habitat, timber and special forest products. This year, small businesses are making 150,000 wreaths with balsam boughs harvested from state forest lands. The estimated annual sales for Minnesota companies producing holiday wreaths exceed $23 million and Minnesota’s public lands support a large share of this economic activity. Each holiday season, half a million Christmas trees are harvested from private tree farms in Minnesota, contributing about $30 million to the state’s economy. For each tree harvested, one to three trees are planted. Real Christmas trees store carbon during their lifespan. They can be chipped for mulch when the season is over, making them an environmentally friendly choice.
      More information and details on viewing the tree is on the state Christmas tree page. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
