      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 .

The Crew went Fishin Report - 5/18/07 (3 pics added)

Recommended Posts

7 of us hitup one our Rochester area reservoirs last night. It was a great evening for fishing. Temp was perfect and wind was wimpy.

Everybody caught fish both big and small. All plastics. None of us had live bait. We caught 1 white sucker, a few pumpkinseeds, several largemouth bass, ~40 gills, ~75 white crappies, and ~25 black crappies. Just about all our gills were at or over 8” with the largest going 8.75” and lots of bullish color in some and bellies on others. Nearly all our white crappies were total dinks, but they were fun. I went 6 casts in a row with fish, followed by 1 blank, then 4 in a row again (freelining a 2” pink/white Exude Twister). We had a dozen or so black crappies that were 9-10.5”

The preferred method of the gills was small plastics under a float (I used Culprit paddletails on 1/32oz collarless jigs). Often times they would hit it right as soon as the bobber stood up. I think the drop motivated them. Crappies took the same presentation and enjoyed the twister tail freeline as well.

All fish were released.

I saw loads of gill beds, but the fish were not actively on them last night. I’m not exactly sure why, but they could be found out a little deeper than their beds.

It was nice fishing with everybody last night. Several of these guys had never fished this particular body of water until last night, but I have a feeling they will all be coming back soon.

I lucked out on tics with NONE and was happy about that.

The Crew: Nate L, Shawn G, Ryan D, Alex W, and the Andies

The main thing that I noticed was that my crappie could have ate those bluegills.

went out there to give it a try again last nite with pretty good results, between my and my cousion we reeled in around 30 or so nice sunnys the biggest going just a hair over 9", only a few crappies though and they were dinks, as usuall for this body of water the crappies all came right at sunset, also had a few bass, the pink/white minimite with a waxie was what the gills wanted with all the crappies coming on blue/chartruse paddeltails, my cousion also did well with a black and gold floating rapala

I have to remain mysterious!! Don't want everyone to know that they are out there with an expert, and for sure can't let on that I am an expert! It is all part of my master plan! grin.gif

      Can anyone report on fishing on Rainy River this week?
    • Tony S
      Headed up this weekend for the first trip of the fall.  Thinking about fishing the lake with all the good reports from there, but has anybody been up to Clementson, Frontier or Birchdale  areas recently that could give a report?  Thanks.
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      VG, Good bite most days now! All minnows for me. jigs or lindys. Chubs, shiners, and pike suckers. Found walleyes from 8' to 40' yesterday. Cliff

      Thanks for chiming in and sharing how the river has been treating you lately. They sure are fun to catch. I am hoping to get out again this weekend for some more smallie action. Hopefully they are still near where I was able to find them last weekend....

      I fish pretty much exclusively above the Sartell dam.  I normally try to hit it 2-3 times per week.  Over the last 3 weeks, I thought the fishing was down right ridiculous(even with the crazy high water) at times, 12-20 fish in a hour or two before sunset.  I found them right up on the bank, and of course in slower moving water.  There are a few spots north of the dam that are great places for high water.  Some larger areas where the water can swirl around and create backwash.  In fact, I'll point my boat down right and put spot lock on, because the water is flowing back up river, and just cast parallel with the bank.  Most of the time I'll throw a Scatter rap, then when I see a fish chasing bait, I'll throw out a wacky rig.   I went out last weekend to a spot I've been hitting, and the fish have diminished big time.  Caught 6 in a couple hours.  Then I went out last night, and caught one walleye.   So, with that in mind I figured they had to of gone to the deeper rock piles.  And, sure enough, I caught 2 just before sunset, then I headed in.   If you have SI, just drive down or up river and look for large groups of rock piles.  Go up river from them, and try and do a controlled drift over the rocks.  I normally use a jig and a tube.  And there's no mistaken them when they hit.   Even a few eyes mixed in every once in a while.
