      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 started out the day on saterday at silver lake for carp got 5 in about an hour and a half all about 10 to 15 pounds. then jumped in the car and went out to game haven. we started out fishing for sunfish and crappies with worms. then we headed around the lake untill we found a beaver dam and got about 10 mid sized crappies and about 20 nice sunfish. i put on a beetle spin and started geting bass. we headed across the lake and on the first cast i got a largemouth that was 22 inches long and had a 17 inch girth. we did the math thing to find the weight and it said it was 7.9 pounds. my best ever. i wish i had my camera

Wow, that is a nice day. Nice work.. What did you catch the carp on? Crawlers or corn?

That bass is a bruiser. Nice fish. They are out there for sure. A beetle-spin is a good crappie and monster gill lure (especially in mid summer). Just a friendly reminder to make sure your not targeting bass at this time of year since bass season is closed. It sounds like you were going for crappies and gills thou.

Great report and thanks for sharing.

Hey Tyler,

Since your so good at pointing out everyone else's fishing mistakes, weren't you illegally fishing for Lake Sturgeon this last week? I thought I read in the regulations that Lake Sturgeon season on the Rainy River is open 4-24-07 to 05/07/2007 or did I read it wrong? I'm just trying to stick up for the guys that get chastised all the time. I consider myself a law abiding fisherman and I'm sure muskiehunter does too. Just keeping you in check as well. I think? If I am mistaken I apologize.

NutsAboutFishing,

I'm not trying to pick on anybody, nor tear apart a great day of fishing. I'd be excited as anybody to catch a 22" largie. I just dropped a friendly reminder to those that are reading this thread that one cannot target bass at this time of year. I didn’t mean to make it sound as though I thought anybody was breaking the law.

About Sturgeon Fishing. No apology needed. There's some confusing regs about Sturgeon fishing. Feel free to recheck the regs.

http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/news/releases/index.html?id=1145379694

The lines below should clear it up

-Oct. 1 - April 23 -- Catch and release only.

-Anglers not intending to harvest a lake sturgeon may practice catch and release for the species during the open season.

Again, I’m not didn’t mean to come down on anybody or assume anyone was fishing out of season. FM is a great tool to keep the casual angler up to speed on the some of MN’s hundreds of fishing regulations. FM can also be a tool to help keep everyone in check (including myself) as long as we don’t take reminders like this personally.

I hope it’s all good.

I stand corrected. I did not catch the October-April 23 overlap. So you were catching and releasing I presume? And no fish were kept out of the water longer than necessary to photograph right?

Ha,

The fish in my avatar was tagged, so it was my duty to turn in the DNR tag Number. I didn't have a pen handy so I just took a picture. If you zoom in enough, you can read the tag #.

Please take any further personal attacks offline. WoW.

Nutsaboutfishing...you need to settle down. Tyler's post meant no offense. He is just being an advocate for the fish which is what we should all be doing. He didn't accuse anyone of anything, he just gave a reminder that bass season is closed, and in very good taste I might add.

Can't we all just get along? Group hug??? tongue.gif

NutsAboutFishing,

Tyler's post was a simple reminder to those reading the forum that bass cannot be targeted out-of-season. When a casual fisherman hops on the forum and sees that a 22" largemouth was caught at Gamehaven, the natural reaction is to go try to catch another big fish. The friendly reminder issued was to let people know that targeting bass is not legal until May. In no way did his post suggest that Muskiehunter was targeting bass out of season.

      1st time ever I've seen zebra mussels in ottertail on west side   this SUCKS!!!!   had a red solo cup in the water... apparently they love RED.     at least 5 of them    it sucks

      From someone who grew up as a back reeling aficionado, I've learned to appreciate a quality drag on a reel.  It's the one thing I'll gladly pay for. Modern drag systems are so much better than they used to be.  Not taking advantage of them is leaving a lot of the value of a quality reel on the table.  Unused and wasted. So, is that the kind of opinion you were looking for?

      They are already established in OT.  Pulled docks at my sisters place with about 75% covered in zebes.  Wear shoes when your in the water.

      I noticed this spring that the higher end Shimano Stradic and others have eliminated the ability to back reel (no reverse) which I believe is a huge mistake, I don't like it!    any others have comments?

      Went up north grouse hunting it was fun. I must say having a dog makes it better.  This weekend is duck opener and I am jacked up for it.

      The public launch at The Landing on the west end stays open until the ice sets in, but they do pull the dock sometimes around the end of October / beginning of November.

      Just curious if people are finding fish moving into fall patterns yet or still finding them in more summer locations?  I've been finding good sized panfish in deeper water myself around more mid lake structure. Most of the lakes I've been on are still pretty green with algae and weeds.

      Captain Acorn, I use Gamagatu  octopus hooks. Size 4 for crawlers and size 2 for minnows. Red, black, chartreuse, and pink , mostly red and black. I use orange and green glow soft beads at times. (Worked today!) Cliff
