      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 .

The Office of Budget and Management (wife) approved the purchase of a new fishing boat, so selling the old one.

PRICE: $2900 b/o


*1982 Lund Pro Rebel, 16 ft, 3 chairs, lockable rod locker, live well, bilge pump, running lights, lots of bow storage, rod holders, anchor mate crank and anchor. All functional. Just replaced the floor and rear pedestal this month.

*50hp Merc, elec start, tilt/trim, tiller (seals replaced before 2006 season; new ignition switch in 2005 because I snapped an old key off; has been mechanically reliable and trolls down very nicely; I drain out the lower unit fluid every fall.)

* EZ Loader trailer (roller). Bearings replaced before 2006 season.

* 40pd minnkota bow mount elec trolling motor. (Brand new/ never used. Swapped out from new boat) Two 3-prong plug ins for bow mounted trolling motor.

* 36pd minnkota transom mount trolling motor, 2 years old. Brass posts in transom for easy connection wired to bow stored battery.

* Lowrance X-71 depth finder. Has a flasher mode and will give you the battery pack that allows use for ice fishing.

Comes with 3 batterys - one rear, two under bow - along with a dual battery charger for easy recharging.

* custom cover, marker holder and 3 markers will stay with the boat, along with a minnow bucket, landing net, extra prop, fire extinguisher and landing line.


*Paint job isn't terrible, but definitely shows the boat's age

*the switch for the running lights needs replaced. The switch came off in the "on" position, so the lights come on when light poles are inserted, so never bothered me.

* A bulb on the trailer needs to be replaced, which I will try to do before I sell it.

* The trailer hitches securely to the ball (1 7/8), but became finicky at the end of last season. If it does not come down directly over the ball, the internal clasp will not slip past the ball. It's an annoyance at this point that will need to be fixed, but I am not likely to have time to do it.

* trailer shows surface rust.

I am an Army Reservist mobilized for one-year to Ft. McCoy, WI. Fortunately, I make it home to St. Cloud most weekends. Won't make it home this weekend, but will be home on leave 16-18 next week. Will snap some pictures at that time.

Tried to provide a lot of detail so folks can decide if they are truly interested. If you are call me on my cell at 320.493.2207.

Despite its age, this boat has been very reliable for me. I have owned it for 6 years. It's ready to go. All you need is your tackle, bait and poles.

Guys thanks for the interest. Been a little hectic around here. Will be returning calls and emails tomorrow night when I get off duty and will try again throughout the weekend if I don't get you tomorrow night.

During the day cell (in prior post) or email works.

Thanks for the patience.

      Hope everyone had a great summer season of fishing and otherwise, and here's to hoping the fall season is going well.  I'm planning to get some grouse hunting in while up in a couple weeks and noticed Pine Island has a WMA on it.  Figured if I had time, I can take a quick ride out to there and have fun walking around on an island WMA.  Does anyone have any input on difficulty of beaching a boat somewhere along the shoreline on the north or south side, if even possible?   Thanks for the help and advice this year from everyone I talked to on here.  Looking like I may miss out on hard water this year and will have to put cracking that nut off until next year.

      Any thoughts, opinions on the new lighted jigs from tundra tackle. Anyone seen them in any store. I could only find on-line.

      I have a number of family and friends fishing the river Thursday thru Sunday this week.  No reports yet.  I will pass them along as soon as i hear.

      Northwestern and central Minnesota have elevated fire danger due to sparse rain, high winds and lack of humidity. This means that open burning may be restricted in certain counties. The Department of Natural Resources urges Minnesotans to use caution while burning yard waste or leaf piles outdoors and to check the burning permit website for information.  “During fall, we know that residents and property owners will be taking care of leaf and brush piles,” said Casey McCoy, DNR wildfire prevention supervisor. “Piles can smolder undetected for several weeks under the right conditions. Windy, fall days can reignite these piles.” On average, Minnesota issues approximately 43,250 burn permits annually. When weather conditions warrant it, state fire team leaders may turn burning permits on or off. To determine whether burning is allowed, Minnesotans should regularly check their county burning restrictions. Residents may need to find alternatives to burning such as composting or hauling brush to a collection site or wait until it is safer to burn. “If you do decide to burn yard waste or leaf piles, do so when there is less wind,” said Linda Gormanson, burning permit coordinator. “Instead of burning your yard waste and potentially causing a wildfire, compost or chip your yard waste or bring it to a collection site.” Burning restrictions do not apply to campfires; they are still allowed. Clear an area around the campfire, watch it continuously and make sure it is out cold to the touch before leaving. Fire danger can change quickly. Check the Minnesota Incident Command System site for fire behavior conditions. For questions about burning restrictions, check the DNR page at or call your local Forestry office.

      Lots of boats on the river daily here in LF now.  Select people are hitting good pods of fish and catching well.  Flows, though still Very swift, are slowing.  Fish are becoming a little more scattered, more fish are being caught away from shore and away from prominate structure. Minnows and tubes pulling most fish.  A few nice fish here and there most are falling in the 15-17 inch range. Good luck out there.

      Rivers are so under fished in this state.  People seem to gravitate towards lakes all the time and avoid rivers but the reality is that rivers, large and small, have awesome fishing.

      same results here lots of fish but had to sort through them for keepers. How bout them jumbo perch mixed in though wow.  I actually was catching quite a few smallmouth deeper as well. I had good luck with gulp alive pink shine 4" minnows too seem to catch bigger fish

      PSU, Lots of smaller walleyes mixed in with the keeper sized fish at most spots. A few spots do seem to have a larger percentage of keeper sized fish though. Looks very good for the next couple of years! Cliff
