      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 .

Jonny P report

The crappie bite just gets better and better as crappies ram their way into shallow water for a night of romance. I have been finding active crappies in 4-2 feet of water. (Jonny P/ Outdoors With Jonny P its affiliates and/or associates are not responsible for your big old boat stuck on a sandbar trying to reach 2 feet of water) wink.gif Crappies have been actively hitting dark colored jigs tipped with shiners during the daytime hours and preferring a brighter jig such as pink or chartreuse as dusk rolls in. Water temps have been ranging from 59-68 degrees across the lake putting these crappies into high gear in there search for darker bottom spawning areas such as the northern and north eastern shores of the lake.

The walleye bite this weekend should prove to be successful as many crappie anglers are frustrated with bait stealing walleyes (bet you never thought I would say “bait stealing walleye”) along the 6-4 foot breakline. Remember proper handling and good ethics this weekend as we handle many non-keeper walleyes.

I also wanted to ask full co-operation with the creel survey, these guys and gals are not out to bust you, reprimand you for who knows what or harass you, they are there to monitor the fishery while continuing their efforts to make Upper Red Lake a quality lake once again. So take the time and tell it straight, it will pay off in years to come.

Good luck this weekend and enjoy the Outdoors.

Here is a pic of a super dark spring crappie

All I did was change careers and stopped eating anything that comes as a value meal.

Jon -

Sorry I didn't introduce myself Monday (I was the guy who interrupted your late lunch/early dinner)- I didn't think about it until after I left you to your lunch. You were probably wondering who the heck was that guy?

Anyway, nice meeting you, and thank you very much for your advice. I wasn't able to convince my fellow fisherthings to give it a serious try, they preferred to catch and release a million or so walleyes. Anyway, we had a great time. I'm going to try to get up there again before it gets too late in May, maybe dash off early from work, I could be on the lake by 6 and get the evening fishing in.

Thanks again for your advice, and I hope I didn't gab so long your burger got cold.

later,

River Karhu

No problem at all, I shouldn't be eating bacon cheese burgers anyways. wink.gif

The north shore did well on crappies you guys should have made the trip instead of catching walleyes with a bluegill attitude.

Next time I'll have my boat and it won't be an issue - I'll be the Kaptain!

All I need is a slightly bigger motor......a 15 or 20hp and I would feel better about challenging the big lake.

later

      This year?   It is new this year.... Apparently a lot of businesses are having trouble hiring seasonal employees.

      I have only been there a few times, but that doesn't make any sense based on my visits.

      I am headed to MN for my annual trip and wanted to target pike on leech. For the past 5-6 years I have been kayaking smaller lakes around the area but now I am back to having a decent boat for bigger waters. Used to fish the east side flats in Headquarters and Boy bay prior to my kayak days. Usual came earlier in the year as well. Bucktails on weedlines still my best bet or do you think crankbaits are the way to go just off weedlines? Better spots than others? Should be there a few days before / after Labor Day.

        I believe the  problem here is a hull with rocker.   At different trim and speed the hull does just that, rocks.   Normally you'd trim in, throttle up and once on plane, throttle back to cruise speed and adjust the trim out.    To be trimmed all in at WOT or even cruising speed would make must hulls plow water at the bow.   In the case with rocker you usually find the porpoise stops when you increase speed.   The fin might be enough to lift the transom up and stabilize it.   Let us know what you do and how it works.

      Went and tried a new spot... 3 snacky cats. One of them took my rod straight into the river and I had to dive in after it. Good times.

      I use the Daiwa ct r also have 2 of them best out there in my opinion.
    • FishinCT
      Pretty good for me from Monday through Wednesday. Found them from 14-24ft depending on the spot but most fish came from under 20ft. Trust the electronics and motor around til you find a good school. They are hitting pretty well when you find them
