      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 league

Hey guys,

I have been thinking about starting a Wright County fishing league and am just wondering how many people would be interested in doing this. The lakes I considered are 1. Clearwater 2. Cedar 3. Pleasant 4. Sugar 5. Sylvia/Twin 6. Pulaski 7. Buffalo 8. Maple. It would be a multi-species league on a point system. All but a couple of the lakes would be fished twice. It would run from the week after opener until mid August. The fish we would fish for would be Walleye, Bass, and Northern. It would be a catch and release only and I would limit it to 12 two man teams at a cost of $125.00. If I see enough interest I may try getting it going this year. I also want to know if there are any others out there and contact numbers for the people running them. I don't want to have two league events going on a lake at a time. If it doesn't happen this year I may try getting it going next year. Thanks, Matt

We fish a league in the same area.

Last year we ran into 4 other leagues one night at Sugar Lake. Yes, 4 other leagues.

We have hit 3 other leagues on Maple Lake one night. Sylvia/Twin we have had similar results.

Etc, etc.

Its not so bad for some of the lakes to run into other leagues because there is a lot of water. The trouble comes when everyone wants to leave the lake at the same time. What a mess at the launch.

Not every week do we have problems, but its becoming much more of a problem. Every year there are more leagues forming by the looks of it.

We documented over 10 different leagues a couple years ago in the Wright County area, and got contact info for all of them to set up a meeting to try and combat the scheduling problems.

Only a rep from one other league showed up to our meeting.

It is relly to bad, Nobody would start a fishing club in

Wright cty. I was part of a Mn. valley In-fisherman club that meets in Apple Valley. They have a multi-species system. Only $35.00 for the year, it covers having guys come to speak about fishing. They pick lakes in Dec. and fish all year around. Fishing Saturday, sunday or Monday, on the weekend and lake voted on. You pick which day to fish. Partners are picked at monthly meeting, Even guys who don't have boats get paired with someone that has a boat.

I fished with this club for 11yrs when I lived in Bloomington. I have gone back to be a guest speaker for a nite. Without the bucks in it, it gets to be more fun fishing.

As for the leagues already going, they should all meet and decide on lakes so they don't have 15-30 boats at the same landing at on the same nite.

I wasn't aware there were that many leagues in this area already. I will have to do a little checking to see if there is some room for me on one of the others.

shoot me an email, we have a bass, walleye, pike league and may have an opening. I can send you a lake list and our commisioners email.

P.s. walleyes are more heavily rewarded as they are harder to catch.

I belong to one of the very first multi-species fishing leagues that was developed. We are out of monticello and fish on Thursday nights in wright county. My dad has belonged to the league longer than I have but when I beacame his fishing partner over 10 years ago you never saw another league. Now every Thursday night you can expect atleast 2-3 leagues out fishing. I think we were part of that 4 league night out on Sugar too! If you do start a league,make sure you allow your teams to score their fish out on the lake with another boat to allow for better C&R practices. I have seen several leagues bring their fish up to shore at night in bags, nets and pails and wait in line for some head guy to score the fish. When the fish were done being measured they were just tossed back in the lake without making sure they were revived. Needless to say there were alot of fish floating on the water when these leagues got done. Are league is full for this year but the meeting is the last Thursday of March at the VFW in Monticello next year if you are interested. We start the the first thursday after opener on Buffalo I'm sure I will see atleast 3-4 leagues out their,Good Luck Fishing!!

Yeah, I love watching people walking dipnets full of fish from their trucks back down to the lake for measuring and weighing too...... confused.gif

What are people thinking?

We use bags and measure on the dock. There is nothing wrong with that as long as there is a little common sense used.

Hey Antler Creek,

Send me an email if you could.

Yes, I have a nice black bag with handles from BPS. One thing I helped push this year is reducing from a 2 fish limit to a 1 person fish limit. Some Nights the bags would get absolutely ridiculous. There is no need to be hauling 15+ fish in a livewell & bag. It was the old rules that had been around for about 12 years so it was hard to argue to change it.

Yeah it only takes 1 or 2 of these bad leagues to give the rest of of us a bad name. The way we do it is that we encourage are teams to measure their fish with another boat when they get a few in the livewell or especially when they get a quality size fish. This way the fish that they catch are varified by another boat without having to be bounced around in the livewell all night. Then back at the access when fishing is over the teams report their catch for the night with me, the score keeper. This process really improves a fishes chance for recovery because their time spent in the livewell is greatly reduced.

      I just purchased the Humminbird Autochart Pro to use wth my Humminbird 999. After going through the 'installation guide' and the 'get started guide' that's included in the Autochart PC program, I can't find what I need to do to get this on my model Humminbird. Anyone have experience? Thanks, Paul

      Did well this morning on big bay with gold spinners. 24-26 feet off the edge of a reef. Decided since they were biting we'd try the west end to see if we could catch some big fish. Put up a big zero out there. Guess they behave a bit different from end to end.  On a small reef out west had a guy pull up on us, throw a marker right on the fish and camp out right there. Kind of tough to fish spinners when someone does that. What is the etiquette on this lake when someone does that? Just fish where you want even if you run right up on them or in between them and the marker? I see the thousand dollar  depthfinder in the back of the boat, just mark a waypoint and keep the marker in the boat man. Really grinds my gears. Whoops...sorry for the rant   Never had that happen on the east end though

      Coming up next weekend to pull up the docks for the last time. Yup, my brother-in-laws folks sold their place on Frazer Bay. They owned the beautiful place just west of the public boat landing.They are in their 80's and are going to stay put at their place on Arizona. Been coming up for 20 years and now I won't have a free place to vacation at. Going to have to do some surfing for rentals I guess. Anyways, how has the walleye fishing been? Guess the weather will be quite a bit cooler next week.  Thanks for all the help over the years!
