      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 fished French Lake yesterday evening in the windy mist. Marked a few crappies on the graph in 8 to 12 feet of water. Never pulled one up. I pretty much confined myself to the south shore, past the point by the launch over to the rock piles in 4 to 15 feet. (my favorite ski spot in the summer)

The dock is not out yet, so if you have a larger boat, prepare to get your feet wet.

I will be fishing Mazaska on Sunday afternoon hoping this front will be through by then.

Fished Kelly/Dudley Lake today. No fish, but caught a 16ft boat. Some guys launched their boat, made it about 75 feet from the launch, and did not put the plug in. 2 swam to shore, (the water temp was 44)I pulled the other from his boat, he was standing on the bow, which was the only part left out of the water. It was about 8 feet deep at that point.

The sheriff came abored my boat and we pulled the sunk boat as close as we could to shore so a truck with a rope could pull it ashore from there.

Was the absolute strangest day on the water I have ever had.

I'll be curious to read the police incident report in the Farbo newspaper.

Maybe next time out,I'll have better luck. smile.gif

I fished Clear and found a limit of crappies in 10'. wink.gifLots of bait fish around. Didn't get any sunfish. On the water about 10 and off by noon before the mist. Better fishing around here than the last few trips to the river.

Wow burnt way to do your civic duty!! I'll bet the guys you pulled out of the water appreciate what you did for them today! Especially going back and dragging the boat in. That was definately above and beyond the call of duty. Not too many guys can say they caught a 16 footer! grin.gif

I could not imagine swimming in 44 degree water crazy.gif I'm glad they were only in shallower water & not the deep holes those lakes have. They were very lucky to have you there.

Hats off to you! Glad they were ok.

Yes, if they would have made it out to the 60 foot hole...it'd be a whole different story, and most likely not a happy ending.

Im pretty sure these guys will be taking a boat saftey course in the near future. They also did not have any PFD's onboard. One of my neighboors from across the lake took a few pictures. As soon as I get them, I will post.

      I will add that it is nothing like the old days when throwing a marker was practically life threatening..... But that is west end.   If it wasn't for the musky  guys there would only be like three of us...

      The public access on Grand Lake in Stearns County will be temporarily closed Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. for hand removal of starry stonewort. This temporary closure is necessary for the safety of workers and divers.  A relatively light population of the invasive algae was recently confirmed around the Grand Lake public access, following a coordinated starry stonewort search involving 200 trained detectors in 20 counties. DNR invasive species specialists will hand-pull starry stonewort while preserving native aquatic plants. Starry stonewort has never been eradicated from any lake in the United States, but treatment can ease access and recreational use of a lake, while helping to reduce the risk of infestation to other water bodies.

      Skunked.  Reruns on late nite so watch Hooker for laughs. Never saw it much in 1983. Shatter is Kirk as Hooker. To fun. He an his three self trained rookies are the answer to everything  the only squad with action an Hooker solves every case by end of show ending with a real dramatic line an stop action shot  acting is really bad but fun. City neeeds Hooker an he an crew kick it into high gear. Real 80's corn. Locklear n James Darren an Adrain Zmed prove trying to act is not hard but acting is. Total fun an totally predictable. Best lure I been use in is a simple black buck tail an a huge ol red n white spoon. Wallys like my raps dragged on a 2oz bottom bouncer an pike for some reason been eating my worms on a floaty. Smaller are a hoot an my Hounds love the action. Speaking of action. I have never seen a show with as much running in it as TJ Hooker. Ol Capt. Kirk is always on the go. "You call it in. I'll get'nm". "I want him bad. Ya hear. BAD".   :  ). I sure miss my pup Moe Rock. Bummer so this is a treat. Keep on rocken!  Fish on. T

      Here are some of the toads we have been catching on the Rum River this summer.  The biggest has been 19 1/4 inches.

      I agree with rudrave, a boat will open up a lot more opportunities to fish off shore.  You could get a brand new 16 foot fishing boat with a 25 hp motor and a basic sonar unit with trailer for about $10 grand and that sort of rig would get you on a lot of small to medium-sized lakes in addition to rivers around here.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has confirmed Hubbard County’s first case of Eurasian watermilfoil, an invasive aquatic plant, in Bad Axe Lake near Emmaville. DNR invasive species specialists confirmed Eurasian watermilfoil around the resort access to the lake. They reported it did not appear to be widespread into other areas of the lake. Eurasian watermilfoil can limit recreational activities on water bodies by forming mats on the water surface, and can alter aquatic ecosystems by displacing native plants. It is typically spread when plant fragments have not been properly cleaned from trailered boats, personal watercraft, docks, boat lifts, anchors or other water-related equipment. Treatment options include selective herbicides and mechanical removal, to minimize the plant’s impact while protecting native aquatic plant species. Treatment is unlikely to eradicate Eurasian watermilfoil from a lake. It may minimize impacts, but rarely prevents broader dispersion within a lake. This new confirmation is a reminder to boaters and anglers to follow Minnesota laws to prevent the spread of aquatic invasive species: Clean aquatic plants and animals from watercraft. Drain all water by removing drain plugs and keep drain plugs out while transporting watercraft. Dispose of unwanted bait in the trash. Some invasive species are small and difficult to see at the access. To remove or kill them, take one or more of the following precautions before moving to another waterbody, especially after leaving infested waters: Spray with high-pressure water. Rinse with very hot water (120 degrees Fahrenheit for at least two minutes or 140 degrees Fahrenheit for at least 10 seconds). Dry for at least five days. Details about Eurasian watermilfoil and other aquatic invasive species are available at mndnr.gov/ais. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
