      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 would like to thank everyone of the fellow onliners for all the great info shared on this site!! THANKS!! Alright opener is just about here in a matter of days, is everyone as pumped for this season as I am? I plan on being on the river way before sun up and as of the time writting this, looks like my crew is up in the air for now. I maybe the lone gunner in the early morning hours but hey thats nothing new! I still havn't made a game plan yet but its the river and a person needs to be flexable. I'm sure the fishing is going to be great and all the well known spots are going to get pounded and I may even hit one or two of them myself, ( Sandmannd Gps 006) I'll be starting there! Hope to see ya on the water! Looking forward to another great year on one of the best fisheries! can't wait!!! cool.gif

I'll either be on croix or Superior going for Lakers. Either way I'm pumped to get. Matter of fact I will probably be going out this week for a cruise and maybe even try for the crappies.

I moved to Rosemount last year and fished the river for most of last summer. All I seem to catch are Small Mouth and sheephead though, what am I doing wrong? I try different applications in different areas but only landed one walleye all last summer. Any tips or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Sgttweety, The croix can get a bit tougher in the summer months and you may have to dig a bit deeper and fish the early and late bites. I find the early bite to be best. I also wouldn't rule out fishing with one of the local riverrat/guides like Turk/Croixeyes or someone with a bit of river know how and alot of experience and a large bag of tricks to delve into. If you are looking to strike out(no pun smile.gif on your own, have fun fish hard and learn each little stretch as well as you can, keep a journal or log the fish, water temps, depth, weather, presentation, ect, ect and you may see some definate patterns develope. I for one thought the bite last fall was tough due to the shad but that is my excuse and I'm sticking to it! Look back on other posts from years previous too as they might tip you off in the right direction. Best i can do for you pal. Good luck!

      Great news to hear! Hopefully it will make enough tonight and hope it isn't going to get as warm as they say. Fingers crossed!

      Was hoping to come up with a 1/2 ton and a 16ft wheel house Dec. 1st.  Any thoughts if the ice will be think enough to go out of Hillmens?

      Took a drive around Lake Osakis earlier. It appears the cold and calm winds we had last night made a lot of ice. From what I could tell it appeared the lake was locked up except there was a small open area in Manthey's Bay that had a couple trumpeter swans swimming around and another small area in front of Holiday Resort that had some ducks swimming around. The rest was all ice, thin ice. Don't know if it will hold up over the next 5 days. High of 38 tomorrow, 46 and showers on Friday with high winds, 36 Saturday, 44 Sunday and 44 Monday. The lows over night aren't going to dip very low. If it was a few inches thick I wouldn't be to concerned, but as thin as it is, could be bad.

      Not by itself it won't but they raised the price on licenses for everything. Once you add it all up I'll bet you never got that big of a raise at your job. I paid for an ATV license since they first came out and we didn't get squat for it for over 20 years. What a joke, not to mention debacles like Mille Lacs Lake management. AAARRGGHHH!!  I gotta quit now before I pop a vein.

      Thanks for the updates.  Think I will play it safe and wait until Thursday, November 30 to go out from McKinley Park.

      7" of good clear ice in the couple holes I drilled in Pike Bay this morning.

      not sure why its not showing I'm posting? Anyway walking out on the south shore gets you in deeper water quicker. Yes they do bite on red lake during the dark. I hardly ever go on the lake early ice unless Buddy Hillmen needs my help. Once I drive on the lake with blue thunder I will be on her just about everyday un  tell mid march if mother nature cooperates.

      Can anyone recommend a place nearby the Metro Area where a person can take their air rifle to sight in the scope since you cannot shoot them in city limits.  Plus, probably not smart to just pull up to a random field to sight in, either.  Thanks!!

      Went out early Sunday on smaller lake before the Vikes game...5" of good ice and it was growling so making more before it warmed up. Caught a bunch...pic of the dozen crappies we kept...but it was fast and furious from 7-9am

      Happy thanksgiving Cookie to you and your family!!!  Glad to see you made it through the summer and are getting ready for the long winter on such a Grand Lake!
