      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 .

Only allowed one lure, what would it be?

Recommended Posts

If you wanted to fish walleyes, bass, northerns...or any large game fish (all at once) and were allowed only ONE lure...what would it be??

I would bring a classic Rapala Minnow or a Heddon River Runt as these lures seem to catch all kinds of fish.

Mepps Marabou #3 white...come to think of it, I hardly even use this one... My most often used lure would still be a floating rap blue minnow #7 - 10 years old and still taking fish...

#5 Shallow Shad Rap in Perch. I have caught more fish on this than anything and it has the tooth marks to prove it grin.gif

I would pick a blue/crome rattle trap. Casts a country mile and can be fished fast or slow.

I'd take up golf with that kind of limitation, but I'll say a 3" white Mr. Twister and a 1/8 ounce jig.

Very hard, very hard. For those species I'd have to say a hook with a rainbow on it. Call me old fashion but it still catches fish. laugh.gif

I'd go with a Beetle Spin with a white twister tail - preferably Exude.

You've got your spinner and your jig - can be fished fast or slow, and can be worked at a variety of depths.

I've caught walleyes, bass, northerns, trout (both lake and stream), crappies and even whitefish on Beetle Spins.

An M-80 with a treble hook attached! Nah, I'd take a regular ballhead feather jig in the 1/4 ounce size...as it stands, I catch most of my fish on a 1/32 feather jig, everything from sunnies to pike.

For the species listed, a Shad Rap. Color pattern would depend on water color. Expand that to all species and it would be lead head jigs.

That's not a lure. That is bait.

I'd have to go with a countdown rapala. If it was going to be my only lure I'd certainly not use a plastic bait because after a few fish the bait would wear out and the tail might come off or get bit off. Nope, good old hard baits for me! Ole Matty, I got your Frenzy #7 from the walleye that bit you off and the lips are still attached to the front treble hook. Good bait but Ilike the versatility of the countdown. My .02.

      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.
