      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.

      Second the guide.  Fishing a lake in the north is totally different from fishing Mississippi or lake Zumbro or other lakes in the southern half of the state.  Otherwise you should look at the best place to launch your boat to be close to good fishing.  Rainy is a very big lake.. Ask in http://fishingminnesota.com/forums/forum/98-rainy-lake-fishing-reports-hunting-events/ the rainy lake forum.

      Unless they find a way to stop all the kinds of waterfowl from swimming, diving, eating and pooping from lake to lake. It's never going away.

      I saw this on the Wright County website today: http://www.wrightswcd.org/Water_Mana...e_species.html
      There's a link in Blue on the home page.


      Sounds like they are having a meeting about it on AUG 23. From talking to the DNR, I believe they didn't allow the initial dates for this to happen. Mostly because there was really no comment period on it. Sounds like they are gonna have it now. Guess if your against it, now's your chance to speak up. You can also send in written comments. Not sure exactly to who, at least I didn't see that part clearly. Maybe to Alicia O'Hare.


      Like others have said, I believe their ultimate goal is to have this implemented county wide at some point. When you look at the committee info, most groups are lake associations. Hopefully it still can be stopped. Here is the DNR person I called on this, she was helpful: Heidi Wolf - 651-259-5152

      Anyone else have new info on this?

      I resisted converting to braided lines. I liked my TrileneXL. Then, one day about four years ago I decided to spool up with fireline and at first I didn't think I could really feel much difference. Skeptical me, I always held on to that spool loaded with my trusty Trilene. One day I decided to put that mono back on and immediately could feel the difference. It felt like I was fishing with a rubber band. I went back to braided and haven't looked back.

      Last night a flock of geese buzzed the house and Finn went nuts! I think he wants to get out hunting as much as I do.

      Nice video Curt.  Looks like you are having way too much fun out there. Enjoy the time on the water.

      I will probably go out to my parents farm and set up in a pasture. The cattle have it mowed down pretty good. The geese seem tp pile in there pretty good. I won't hit it to hard, just get out a few times and hopefully get my son to get his first goose...
