      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 .

Just back from Cabo for a few days of fishing. Overall for the week the fishing started off slow, skunked on our first charter on Wednesday the 27th, not a single tail to be spotted. It seemed everyone else was pretty close to the same. After a bummer trip we mustered up another trip with a little faster boat to get us 40 miles out.

The Marlin Master IV topped out at 68MPH

The day went pretty good from the get go, 2 lines in the water working on the third and snap, fish on!

IMG_1092.jpg

This color had all the hits from the stripers that day

IMG_1093.jpg Good old Firetiger!

Heres a pic of the small striped prior to release

IMG_1096.jpg

And the release IMG_1099.jpgIMG_1098.jpg

We chased tail for about another 4 hours seeing over 20 Marlin within 30 yards of the boat. We had 3 get off, also had one of the largest striped I have ever seen get on and go airborne for about 2 minutes until it landed on the leader and snapped it. Overall there were alot of Marlin congregated in the area we were in and we had it to ourselves for several hours before the rest of the Cabo fleet arrived. Captain said with the full moon the fish are less likely to hit as they fed all night. The early morning was pretty prime then after that you could throw anything at them and they would just swim away. We turned over to Tuna after that. Here is a pic of a skipjack that was released IMG_1104.jpg All in all we landed 1 marlin, 4 tuna, 1 skip jack and a stray mahi. Tried to temp 3 mako's but couldn't get them to go. The first two Blue's were taken this past week as the water is a bit warmer this year then in past, one tipped the scales at a guestimated 400+ lbs.

Hey Cheffrey; welcome home to this miserable weather! Betcha wish you coulda stayed another week:) I figured you'd be up against it this week as the reports have really tapered off. Did you fish Pisces the first day you were skunked? Where did you find the other boat? Outboards are rare enuf down there, never seen the likes of that boat in the harbor. Do you have contact info? What did you pay? Just might have to look at them when I get down there the end of May. Anyway, it's always good to spend a wek in Cabo, eh?

Traveler, look up Marlin Masters in Cabo, they are a modest fleet of 6-7 boats with a guy from Atlanta owning it. Nice little store front in the shopping mall near picante`. That boat ran 600 all inclusive, started at 700. They sell it cheaper as it is not as comfortable but to me its the best experience I have had. The other boat was the Marisol II, Father in Law wrangled it in a timeshare presentation for 250 for 7 people. More of a whale watching trip than anything. The Marlin Masters plan to start a Kayak program for Marlin on the fly. Sounds crazy but they should be set up next year.

Cool! I've seen a couple articles about the yak fishing; I'll be all over that when they get going. I know theres an outfit up on the cape that does it now. I'll check out MM; not surprised on the timeshare setup boat:( I did that once in Mazatlan, same story.

I fished out of a very similar Fountain with triple 225 Optimax Merc's. We had to travel 60 miles into the gulf off the coast of Louisiana to fish the Oil Rigs and that thing halled some serious A$$.

I thought we had the fastest boat out there until we pulled up on another Fountain that had Quad 250's on the back. shocked.gif

Great photos! I have a trip planned to Zihuantanejo next January and was wondering if anyone has ever fished out of there and can recommended any boats or captains? I have never been there. I have looked around on the Internet some but have a hard deciding or weeding out the less creditable ones.

I have fished with Captain Santiago and his brother Adan on the Gitana 1 and 2. They are both pangas but they catch a lot of fish. I've caught a lot of sailfish with them.

      I've massaged the trigger finger this summer by shooting the sporting clays league at Rice Creek.  Good way to make sure I got out! Started a little rough as to be expected but got back the groove toward the end.  Finished the summer at a charity shoot with 39/40.  That felt good.

      Through a federal grant from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources’ has awarded more than $450,000 in local grants to protect and enhance inland coastal resources. The annual grant program is managed by the Minnesota’s Lake Superior Coastal Program, which is a voluntary federal-state partnership distributing federal dollars to projects along the inland coast of Lake Superior. This year, grant funding is being awarded to nine projects in the coastal area: Researchers at the University of Minnesota will monitor and analyze measures designed to reduce erosion of bluffs adjacent to North Shore streams. Results will inform guidance on design criteria for future projects. $35,900. The Arrowhead Regional Development Commission will conduct an economic impact assessment of paved trails within the coastal area; determine the number of users of four popular trails (Duluth Lakewalk, Willard Munger State Trail, Gitchi-Gami State Trail, and St. Louis River Trail), and simultaneously conduct large-scale survey of trail-user habits and impacts on coastal economy. $11,500. Laurentian Resource Conservation and Development is planning to host a two-day conference for academia and coastal managers to bridge a gap between research results and practices of watershed assessment, protection and stream restoration. $23,000. Researchers at the University of Minnesota will increase scientific understanding of success rates of coastal forest seeds. Results will inform coastal managers for improved adaptive management and help determination whether coastal trees should be protected and treated as a unique seed collection zone. $98,875. Duluth Children’s Museum in collaboration with Positive Energy Outdoors will create a year round, innovative outdoor science, technology, engineering, and math active learning experience for children, particularly those in low-income households with limited access. $33,100. University of Minnesota Duluth – Natural Resources Research Institute and several partners will develop protocols for assessing the biomass of periphyton (algae attached to rocks) in Duluth area trout streams for use by professional aquatic and citizen scientists. $77,440. City of Duluth will improve public safety and access to the St. Louis River estuary through upgraded wayfinding signage and amenities on the Western Waterfront Trail.  $89,080. Lake County will develop engineering designs and construct trailhead for Lake County Mountain Bike Trail System, a planned 100-plus mile mountain bike trail system. connecting both beginner and advanced cyclists to nature and physical activity in the coastal area. $70,000. City of Carlton will replace an outdoor restroom facility at the Willard Munger trailhead in city of Carlton. The updated structure will meet current sewer requirements and meet compliance with Americans with Disabilities Act. $11,225. For 18 years, the DNR and NOAA have worked together to better Minnesota’s inland coast. Together, the agencies have granted $12.6 million in pass-through funding to more than 550 local projects and provided thousands of hours of technical assistance. Projects are selected for funding through an annual competitive grants process. For more information about Minnesota’s Lake Superior Coastal Program, visit www.mndnr.gov/mlscp.

      Second the guide.  Fishing a lake in the north is totally different from fishing Mississippi or lake Zumbro or other lakes in the southern half of the state.  Otherwise you should look at the best place to launch your boat to be close to good fishing.  Rainy is a very big lake.. Ask in http://fishingminnesota.com/forums/forum/98-rainy-lake-fishing-reports-hunting-events/ the rainy lake forum.

      Unless they find a way to stop all the kinds of waterfowl from swimming, diving, eating and pooping from lake to lake. It's never going away.

      I saw this on the Wright County website today: http://www.wrightswcd.org/Water_Mana...e_species.html
      There's a link in Blue on the home page.


      Sounds like they are having a meeting about it on AUG 23. From talking to the DNR, I believe they didn't allow the initial dates for this to happen. Mostly because there was really no comment period on it. Sounds like they are gonna have it now. Guess if your against it, now's your chance to speak up. You can also send in written comments. Not sure exactly to who, at least I didn't see that part clearly. Maybe to Alicia O'Hare.


      Like others have said, I believe their ultimate goal is to have this implemented county wide at some point. When you look at the committee info, most groups are lake associations. Hopefully it still can be stopped. Here is the DNR person I called on this, she was helpful: Heidi Wolf - 651-259-5152

      Anyone else have new info on this?

      I resisted converting to braided lines. I liked my TrileneXL. Then, one day about four years ago I decided to spool up with fireline and at first I didn't think I could really feel much difference. Skeptical me, I always held on to that spool loaded with my trusty Trilene. One day I decided to put that mono back on and immediately could feel the difference. It felt like I was fishing with a rubber band. I went back to braided and haven't looked back.

      Last night a flock of geese buzzed the house and Finn went nuts! I think he wants to get out hunting as much as I do.
