      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 .

I caught a 32" channel last year spring. Weight?? I didn't know they got that big. I heard ones that are bigger per my buddy. Cut sucker, shiner, shrimp. Oh one time these 12yrs kids were schooling me using leeches and actually broke his rod on a big ol kitty. He was so ticked. I did get a leech and caught a lil one and that was it. Just wasn't my day I guess. Another time my other buddy Bill caught a 8lber on a crankbait. You just never know - but it's a nice lil chocolate river

Catching a lot of catfish, in early june up to June 10, then all catfish biting stopped and the carp and bullhead are the more dominant species now. I have caught 5, 4+ Pounders, all using nightcrawlers, that has been my best bait. Throw your bait in the middle of the river in the current and wait for a hard tug. Lester Prairie. Largest Cat at 28", 8 LBS- 100_3520.jpg

Just recently I have caught some nice fish, the catfish are still there but not in the open they are now preferring the cover. There is a fallen tree that is holding some cats but there are lots of snags. Right off the bridge on the concrete I have caught a Walleye, and a friend has caught a decent catfish, that is where I got my 8 LB fish. The Walleye was 16", and 1.5 LBS. Jigging a Nightcrawler right off the side. I'll post a picture soon.

Ever get any smallies? I know they aren't many in there. I did get one small smallie a few years ago. Hook and worm going for cats. I've also heard rumors of 10lb walleyes to.

I've fished the Dam in Hutch a couple times this year, and caught a Estimated 2 LB Smallmouth, surprising but before I bent down to pull it out of the water the hook came out. Also where I fish I have never heard of a Smallmouth in my part of the crow. In the fall and spring in the area I fish I've heard of anything from 13"-23" long for Walleyes, so about 1-4 LBS. I've only caught one this year, it was 16", but last fall I caught a total of 4, but all in the 13-14" area.

The river has it all, I've gotten smallies(4lbs biggest, walleyes (2-27inches in one day), northerns, even a muskie. The big cats or carp can wreck your real. I use almost exclusively a floating orange rapala.

Where I fish cats are your best bet of a gamefish, bullhead and carp can ruin my fun, unless im going for carp. A walleye is a bonus for me.

We've fished the Crow alot over the years. We used to get a ton of smallies in the river below Burnings Mill, walleye, cats, pike, you name it.

We also got a 9 3/4 pound walleye out of the Crow river near Rockford....got 2 fish that day, about a 10" walleye, (me)and my brother caught the hog. When I came across the river to see what he had, I thought he had a big carp on the stringer.

We have several fishing holes on the crow and we get walleyes now and then, although nothing as big as "The Hog" as we usually refer to it. Lots of little stuff, with a good sized eater thrown in once in awhile.

Every now and then we will get a smallie, but we haven't gotten anything big.

      I've massaged the trigger finger this summer by shooting the sporting clays league at Rice Creek.  Good way to make sure I got out! Started a little rough as to be expected but got back the groove toward the end.  Finished the summer at a charity shoot with 39/40.  That felt good.

      Through a federal grant from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources’ has awarded more than $450,000 in local grants to protect and enhance inland coastal resources. The annual grant program is managed by the Minnesota’s Lake Superior Coastal Program, which is a voluntary federal-state partnership distributing federal dollars to projects along the inland coast of Lake Superior. This year, grant funding is being awarded to nine projects in the coastal area: Researchers at the University of Minnesota will monitor and analyze measures designed to reduce erosion of bluffs adjacent to North Shore streams. Results will inform guidance on design criteria for future projects. $35,900. The Arrowhead Regional Development Commission will conduct an economic impact assessment of paved trails within the coastal area; determine the number of users of four popular trails (Duluth Lakewalk, Willard Munger State Trail, Gitchi-Gami State Trail, and St. Louis River Trail), and simultaneously conduct large-scale survey of trail-user habits and impacts on coastal economy. $11,500. Laurentian Resource Conservation and Development is planning to host a two-day conference for academia and coastal managers to bridge a gap between research results and practices of watershed assessment, protection and stream restoration. $23,000. Researchers at the University of Minnesota will increase scientific understanding of success rates of coastal forest seeds. Results will inform coastal managers for improved adaptive management and help determination whether coastal trees should be protected and treated as a unique seed collection zone. $98,875. Duluth Children’s Museum in collaboration with Positive Energy Outdoors will create a year round, innovative outdoor science, technology, engineering, and math active learning experience for children, particularly those in low-income households with limited access. $33,100. University of Minnesota Duluth – Natural Resources Research Institute and several partners will develop protocols for assessing the biomass of periphyton (algae attached to rocks) in Duluth area trout streams for use by professional aquatic and citizen scientists. $77,440. City of Duluth will improve public safety and access to the St. Louis River estuary through upgraded wayfinding signage and amenities on the Western Waterfront Trail.  $89,080. Lake County will develop engineering designs and construct trailhead for Lake County Mountain Bike Trail System, a planned 100-plus mile mountain bike trail system. connecting both beginner and advanced cyclists to nature and physical activity in the coastal area. $70,000. City of Carlton will replace an outdoor restroom facility at the Willard Munger trailhead in city of Carlton. The updated structure will meet current sewer requirements and meet compliance with Americans with Disabilities Act. $11,225. For 18 years, the DNR and NOAA have worked together to better Minnesota’s inland coast. Together, the agencies have granted $12.6 million in pass-through funding to more than 550 local projects and provided thousands of hours of technical assistance. Projects are selected for funding through an annual competitive grants process. For more information about Minnesota’s Lake Superior Coastal Program, visit www.mndnr.gov/mlscp.

      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.
