      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 .

Took A guy fishing this morning and we caught alot of fish but not the right species, Ended up bringing three nice size eyes home for a meal. Caught a couple decent smallies and a few good size stripers which were returned. I think I should fish for sheephead cause I'm quite the sheep-herder didn't seem to have a problem boating them, sure is fun though! I'll be on the water tomorrow morning by 4ish gotta see the sun rise, hopefully!! cool.gif

Went out on Sat with my father from 6am-12pm. Concentrated on the Kinni area. Got 2 legal walleyes and some other rough fish. Was pretty slow out there and too many boats fishing the same areas. Saw the Griz working the same pattern for awhile. Saw a decent amount of fish caught but nothing special. More legals than shorts seem to be caught. Weather was great. Heard there was a terrible amount of boats up by 94.

Fished from 5-8 this evening, hit a couple spots and had them all to myself. Released two nice ones on one spot, a 22" and a 26", both came on leeches in 28' of water off a steep sand break. Had a couple of short bites on the jig and leech, and that was it. The wind made it a tad difficult to hold on the spot though! Can't wait to hit it again.

Launched from the bluffs at about 6 am saturday. fished the prescott area til about 10 boated 5 eyes and 5 smallies. one keeper eye the others were all around 14.5". saw a lot of small one being caught but not to many keepers. They didn't want anything to do with the minnows I had. All were caught on crawlers. Can't wait to get out again.

Got to the river around 4:30, battled the wind for 8 hours and just couldn't get that final legal fish, sure caught a bunch of thou, fished the same area the whole time croix/miss connection, seen quite a few decent ones caught in the area, seemed every boat out there caught at least one eye/sauger. Had alot of fun, caught a mix bag and tried just about everything to get number six but the eyes kept coming up short, nice to see the short ones though. I won't make it out next weekend at least not down to the croix, I'm taking a friend out on sugar lake, he lives on the lake but hasn't caught any eyes there, but there in there and I hope and pray we find them. First time fishing eyes there should be interesting!! cool.gif

Tried drop shot technique and first fish I pulled was a near 14" crappie. I'd thought that I'd might be able to get some more crappies, but it turned out to be a loner.

Hit a few walleyes - aquarium size keepers...

Lazy bottom lindy rig worm and got shiny golden suckers...and one sheepshead.

Got two white bass.

went out sunday morning and landed our first eye within 15 minutes. Thought it might be a good day on the water but then the wind picked up. We worked real hard and found two eyes all day and a number of sheepheadds and a smallie. The wind was brutal. Made the trek from Stillwater to the Kinnie and didn't get a bite. Fished the hudson area and then headed back north of stillwater for a while. Waves were huge coming into Stillwater as the wind tunneled up the river. Going 40mph+ and could still feel the wind at my back. Nice to be out on the water. A little sore today from batteling the waves.

      Got some grouse and saw some nice coveys. The biggest was 6 birds but found couple groups of 5. That is always fun.

      we mainly jigged fatheads in front of their mouths. 2 weeks ago also and tried a few different times over 3 days this trip. water is still crazy low so I don't think many boats will be using access. Also tried a couple different plastics and some gulp. Probably ready to go crazy up there soon.  Last year at this time it was really good. Might get there once more before ice time but not sure.

      Been thinking about breaking out the Jiggin Raps, might have to give that a shot. It's been too crowded out there this weekend with MEA going on.

      Sounds good! May an oversized deer with obscenely large antlers find its way to you!

      Well the weather was pretty crappy but the fish were biting...Had to sort through but kept some for dinner. Caught a variety today, eyes,jumbos,crappie and a few smallies... rigging on or next to rocks worked best for us.

      hummm, hadn't heard a thing?

      Good luck. Maybe we will see you Friday. I will let you know how things are looking by us as the weekend goes by.

      I still hope it's double!  I just went over the map with my brother and talked about our options.  We have enough places to go for sure.  It's always fun planning and talking about past hunts. I put out the question to the other two guys about staying in camp vs the house.  We'll see what they decide.  I hauled our "cabin" home from Ely today so we should have plenty of room if they wanna camp.
