      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 .

Well, I made it out afterall. After the morning storms I headed out to maple lake in search of the pannies. Didn't catch much in the way of anything. Started out the day with three northers on minnows. Man they were hungry. Spent about an hour trolling/casting plastics looking for some sunnies. Found them in Little Maple. They started out in 12 feet but moved shallower to about 2 feet. Depth finder showed a lot of fish. Was very hard to get them to bite. Seemed more of the fish were located on the first feeding shelf. The warmer weather should be moving them up into their beds soon.

Any reports from other lakes.

Must try some new lakes for early pannies. Crawford may be a sleeper with the shallow water it could warm fast. Alos looking at several small lakes around Buffalo to annandale area. I know there are some goodies.

Been out of town on business for 10 days. Had a chance to cruise around for a few minutes last night to check out the activity on lakes near St. Michael. Lots of guys fishing Pelican (I saw bluegills, crappies and several bullheads caught), Schmidt, Beebe and Martha.

Hoping to officially start the 2007 season today.

JigginJim, I think thats what it's going to come down to. I might head out and hit some of the smaller lakes that don't have as much fishing pressure. I think Maple got hit pretty hard this past winter.

We got into the crappies again today...but all small, hand sized males...had one big fatty up to the boat and it pulled the old paper mouth trick and got away.

We got about 20 sunnies half a dozen slimmers and bass...one good bass about 3 pounds on a little twister. Everything was catch and release today.

We also got very wet! That rain jumped us right when we were calling it a day and heading in...wearing only a tee shirt and a hoody, I was soaked through in no time and commenced to freeze my butt off! One good thing though...now I won't have to take a bath this month! grin.gif

Fished Beebe for a few minutes with my 2-year-old Sunday afternoon. Only had waxies for bait, so no crappies. But we managed to catch a half dozen sunnies in about 15 minutes, much to my son's pleasure.

I got out. Man it was a zoo. Of course I picked Pulaski but still. Anyway, made it out around nine and headed to little Pulaski and caught nothing but dinks. Didn't seem like anyone was catching much of anything. Decided to head out to the main lake. Fished about 10 fow and only caught a couple of northerns. Proceded then to the sunken island and only caught a couple northerns. We were having fun none the less. Moved to the other side of the lake and started drifting. Found a little dead end channel and casted into there and bam, a sunny. Anchored up and a few fish later I hook into a 4 pound large mouth. Put up a fight on my altralight. Man was that fun. My dad caught a five pound carp right after I caught my bass. I laughed because thats the only thing he got from that spot. Nice day on the water but to many ding dongs speeding around the lake.

      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.

      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 https://goo.gl/W686km for fire behavior conditions. For questions about burning restrictions, check the DNR page at mndnr.gov/burnrestrictions or call your local Forestry office. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      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 
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      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
