      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 .

Fishing Pros Johnnie Candle and Jim Carroll will walk you through the tips and tricks of Walleye Fishing. Both anglers are top touring pros on the Professional Walleye Trail (PWT) and full-time fishing promoters. Johnnie Candle, National Professional Anglers Association (NPAA) #42, began his fishing career as a guide. Over the past 19 years, he has spent hundreds of days on the water with his clients. He has guided on Lake Erie, the lower Niagara River, Lake Sakakwea, and for the past 6 years on North Dakota’s Devils Lake. Jim Carroll, NPAA #13, is a twelve year tournament veteran, and currently ranked 14th in the World Walleye Ranking (WWR) of the top 200 professional walleye anglers. Both Johnnie and Jim are charismatic and entertaining public speakers that are deeply committed to the sport-fishing industry.

“Sharing our knowledge is a big part of professional angling,” says Jim Carroll, a veteran on the Professional Walleye Trail and a national championship qualifier, “and it's very rewarding. We travel all over the country to fish for walleye, and we take the techniques that we have learned and teach them in this school. Nothing is more gratifying to us than meeting up with fishermen who have attended Walleye University, and hearing about their successful fishing trips using information learned at one of our schools.”

Walleye University was first introduced in Bismarck, ND during the spring of 2003. It was such a big hit that the duo has decided to take the show on the road. Since Bismarck, the pros have presented this seminar to hundreds of walleye anglers in six different states. Stops this year include Billings, MT • Fargo, ND • Bismarck, ND • Appleton, WI and Mankato, MN.

“There is no other place to learn this much about walleye fishing in one day,” Candle says, “and the tips and tricks learned at the Walleye University will make you a better fisherman. We give you the info on how to deal with those tough days on the water and make every fishing trip more successful.”

Johnnie and Jim’s seminar is comprehensive and covers walleye fishing from A to Z. The topics include walleye rods and reels, jig fishing, live bait rigging, spinners, crankbaits, trolling systems, boat control, marine electronics and more. There will also be plenty of time for questions and answers.

Walleye University was EXCELLENT! John and Jim put on a good seminar. They said they'll be back next year with a different topic, which I will surely attend. Highly recommend it!

      Can anyone report on fishing on Rainy River this week?
    • Tony S
      Headed up this weekend for the first trip of the fall.  Thinking about fishing the lake with all the good reports from there, but has anybody been up to Clementson, Frontier or Birchdale  areas recently that could give a report?  Thanks.

      Thanks for chiming in and sharing how the river has been treating you lately. They sure are fun to catch. I am hoping to get out again this weekend for some more smallie action. Hopefully they are still near where I was able to find them last weekend....

      I fish pretty much exclusively above the Sartell dam.  I normally try to hit it 2-3 times per week.  Over the last 3 weeks, I thought the fishing was down right ridiculous(even with the crazy high water) at times, 12-20 fish in a hour or two before sunset.  I found them right up on the bank, and of course in slower moving water.  There are a few spots north of the dam that are great places for high water.  Some larger areas where the water can swirl around and create backwash.  In fact, I'll point my boat down right and put spot lock on, because the water is flowing back up river, and just cast parallel with the bank.  Most of the time I'll throw a Scatter rap, then when I see a fish chasing bait, I'll throw out a wacky rig.   I went out last weekend to a spot I've been hitting, and the fish have diminished big time.  Caught 6 in a couple hours.  Then I went out last night, and caught one walleye.   So, with that in mind I figured they had to of gone to the deeper rock piles.  And, sure enough, I caught 2 just before sunset, then I headed in.   If you have SI, just drive down or up river and look for large groups of rock piles.  Go up river from them, and try and do a controlled drift over the rocks.  I normally use a jig and a tube.  And there's no mistaken them when they hit.   Even a few eyes mixed in every once in a while.

      Ditto. I switched to a 3 inch shell in #2 shot. I missed a few wood ducks this morning but got one teal. Not bad for the WMA I was hunting. 2 ducks would be great. 3-4 like you won the lottery. Saw plenty of action but it was fast moving wood ducks out of range. Geese never showed. And you can't shoot trumpeter swans! There were plenty of those. Let my boy sleep in this morning. Tomorrow we'll hit the more pressured lake. I saw at least one person setting up on it this morning on my drive to the WMA. The nice thing about that - when you're almost certain you'll be the only one there - is that you can roll in not long before shooting time if it doesn't take you long to set up.
