      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 .

was out on lake most of yeterday from 3 to 10:15

found a new hole in the floor where you and dale kicked up fish ,when snooks and myself were catching other kind.

watched a boat Alumacraft tiller,guy had all the same body language as darryl,hand on tiller,eyes on graphs and setting hook from site etc.same tight hole patterns he stays on, 30 to 75 foot coverage,very typical of the guy we know.

from 65 to 100 yards away they are doing the walleye stomp and i just figure its he.

We are really having fun, catching a lot of fish ,and after 1 and half hour decide to try something else they come in by us and we find out he has a clone,tall skinny guy that fishes just like him.'In the heavy clothes he was wearing it couda been him.

X marks the spot[twice]

Got a couple new spots to show you and they are really small spots that I hadnt used before.

Fishing in the cold front yesterday was super,the walleye stomp is on

LB,just let me know when your coming after this week.

I try to fish a little every day and only have 3 days planned for sure next few days before LCA.

The lake is here to get people on it.

Kinda neat cause kids sports activitys are all ending today.

Been going to 5 to 7 days a week of these and it really frees up time to fish.

Last spring did couple hours day or more 45 days in row fishing.Right upto middle of July.

Took this summer and fall off to finish building house and fish.

Wife says this is ok and so did kids.

Jeeze I love my family

Well I battled that wind on Monday. Can't believe that I was catching 3" perch in 18' of water, found a few eyes muching on them. I had a 18" cough one up in the well.

What is the story with the Banquet/rules meeting Friday? There wasn't a lot of info given about that? How long does it usually last?

LB,dinner is the part of banquet that keeps you in house.

Lots of teams seem to like to wait until that night to drop by and register.

Some prizes are drawn for and you can go from that.

I am not on rules committee and do not know anything else other than its a good little hour and a half.

legion puts on good food so have fun.

If you are coming up again this week let me know,am fishing between ball games.

lots of boats were out this weekend so I didnt go out for very long.

and with that hush is the word

I actually got to prefish the weekend before the tourney for the first time in 4 years. I left all my previous year waypoints on shore and went looking for new stuff. Looks like it paid off. On Sunday and Monday I caught more walleyes on Green than I did all last summer. It should be fun if the fish are there next weekend. As always I had the mixed bag of bass, perch, sunnies, and Northerns. I also boated my personal best Largemouth and Smallmouth this weekend.

That 18" bullhead (Iowan walleye)is the biggest I have ever caught! wink.gif

Sounds like a good time, are kids welcome to the banquet, or do they try to keep it just adults?

I don't think I will be making it up again this week. The Mrs. has me working on Landscaping tonight and tomorrow, and Thursday I will be getting the camper ready. I hope to be parked at West Rich by 2:00 Friday, and get some short time on the water before the meeting.

I fished Green lake, Sunday and Monday, Sunday the smallies were in the shallows (northside). Some guys even keeping them for dinner. Monday, forced to fish southside, all the fish were 20ft or deeper. I also caught alot of 4-7 inch perch, even at 25-30 ft. Several nice smallies on plastics, only 1 19inch, walleye. But thats OK, I have a guy from New York coming just for the smallies. I may get on Green again this weekend. Since the tourney is going, launching may get in little crowded. Can we park in the swimming beach lot in Spicer? I was told, it was off limits to boat trailers.

LB should be around sometime friday,dropping boat off to get some work done in few minutes[GRAPHICS]will leave my cell number at Westrich for you.

Jiggin,the beach parking lot is off but 6 public landings make it a bet you will get a spot to park.

County park #5 the campground landing is quickly becoming a parking favorite,besides landing they have Live Bait,food,fuel and campsites.

Jiggin,J had a small Heart deal,last saturday,talked to his wife yesterday.he will have stress test tommorrow.

      I've been fishing all my life, but I've only recently started seriously catfishing. I've discovered a spot near my home on the Minnesota river where the current comes to a still near a small, no longer active dam where there are rocks and tons of baitfish, which I assume should be a good spot for big flatheads. I've fished this spot a few days now and have only successfully pulled out a small flathead of maybe 5 or 6 pounds on a medium sized live sucker about a foot below a bobber. For your experienced catters, what's the best approach for big cats this time of year? Do you prefer live bait or cut bait? When using cut bait are heads or filets better? Since MN only allows one rod out should I be focusing my bait near the bottom of the river or a couple feet under a bobber? I tend to fish between 7pm-10pm although I'd like to try more late night fishing. Thanks for any suggestions!

      Had similar issues.  I was up for three weeks, each week it was a different set of boats encroaching.  I don't think you can do to much about the one week fishermen. They are in a panic to find fish and when the see one go in the boat, look out. One time,  I was looping in and out of a small spot picked up nice fish and this guy comes in right on that spot and starts jigging.  I couldn't even get back to it.  He would have never know it was there.  I just leave and find more fish.  
    • RoosterMan
      Definitely that time of year again.  Load the boat full of kids and put the raps out and be prepared to catch a lot of fish.  Only gets better from here.  Pic of my son and his cousin and their limits.  Good memories being made.

      When archery deer season opens Saturday, Sept. 16, mandatory testing for chronic wasting disease and restrictions on moving deer carcasses begins again in southeastern Minnesota’s CWD management zone, deer permit area 603.  “With archery deer season approaching, hunters are encouraged to plan ahead and be aware of the testing that will be required and the specifics about when they can and can’t move carcasses out of the CWD zone,” said Lou Cornicelli, wildlife research manager for the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. Archery hunters in deer permit area (DPA) 603 will be required to submit the head from all adult deer 1 year old or older so lymph nodes can be tested for CWD. Hunters cannot remove the carcass or carcass remains from the CWD zone until a negative test result is reported. Carcass movement restrictions do allow hunters to immediately transport out of the zone quarters or other deer pieces without spinal column parts; boned-out meat; and antlers with a skull plate that is free of brain matter. Hunters should check page 65 of the 2017 Minnesota Hunting and Trapping Regulations Handbook for additional information. “Archery deer hunters also should check the DNR website for the DPA boundary map,” Cornicelli said. “As a reminder, the CWD management zone was created from DPAs 347 and 348, so hunters need to be mindful of what area they’re hunting.” Hunters are required to register their deer. DNR will allow phone and Internet registration during the archery season in the CWD zone. The system will be monitored for compliance and may be turned off if needed. Mandatory testing and carcass movement restrictions will remain in effect for area 603 throughout deer seasons for archery, firearm, muzzleloader and any late season hunts. Head collection boxes will be located in: Chatfield: Magnum Sports, 1 1st St., 507-867-4399. Preston: DNR area forestry office, 912 Houston St., 507-765-2740. Lanesboro: DNR area fisheries office, 23789 Grosbeak Rd., 507-467-2442. Wykoff: Goodies and Gas, 104 E Front St., 507-352-2421. Harmony: Oak Meadow Meats, 50 9th St., 507-886-6328 Archery hunters should do the following: Field dress (gut) deer as normal. Register deer via phone, internet or walk-in big game registration station. If harvest occurs late in the day, sample (head) submission and registration do not have to occur on the same day. If the deer will be mounted, a video showing how to properly cape your deer is available at bitly.com/capeadeer. Remove the head, leaving at least 4 inches of neck attached. Hunters can take meat out of the zone immediately but the carcass (head with brain and spinal column) cannot be moved outside deer permit area 603 until a negative test result is received so hunters must: Make arrangements to refrigerate the carcass before the deer is processed; Cut deer into quarters or other pieces; or Bone-out the meat. Ensure no spinal column or brain matter is included with the meat or on the antlers. Properly dispose of carcass remains. There will be a dumpster at the DNR forestry office in Preston for hunters who don’t have a way to dispose of remains. The Preston dumpster is being provided as a courtesy for deer carcass disposal only. It will be removed if people attempt to process deer there or use the dumpster for trash disposal. Bring the entire head of deer to one of five head box collection sites. Each collection box has specific instructions on how to properly submit the head for sampling. Put heads in the plastic bags provided. Use the maps provided at each box to mark an “X” where the deer was harvested. Submit this map with sample. Samples during the archery season will be submitted for testing on Mondays and Thursdays. It may take up to four business days for test results to be available.  CWD test results can be searched using a nine-digit MDNR number online at www.mndnr.gov/cwdcheck. Deer hunters should regularly check the DNR’s CWD website at mndnr.gov/cwd for the most recent information. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      I don't know if fishing is better or worse in Minnesota, but you can get a perfectly adequate fishing boat for under 20k,  under 10k if you are ok with used.   For example, a boat like this would totally do everything you want to do... http://hotspotoutdoors.com/forums/topic/181008-2005-lund-explorer-1600-with-merc-60hp-4-stroke-efi-fully-loaded/ I don't know if this is a good price or a good boat, but you get the picture...

      Firearms and muzzleloader hunters who want to harvest antlerless deer in a deer permit area designated as lottery this hunting season are reminded they must purchase their license by Thursday, Sept. 7. Hunters who purchase their license before this date are automatically entered into the lottery for the deer permit area or special hunt area they declare.  This season, antlerless deer permits are issued by lottery in 48 of Minnesota’s 130 deer permit areas. No application is needed to take antlerless deer in permit areas with hunters choice, managed or intensive designations. Hunters who want to participate in special firearm deer hunts also need to apply for permits that are issued through a lottery, and the application deadline is Sept. 7. More information about deer permit areas, how their designations are set and special hunts is available on the deer page and in the 2017 Minnesota Hunting and Trapping Regulations Handbook. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
