      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 .

Jamestown Reservoir

Recommended Posts

Does anybody fish the Jamestown Reservoir? I am thinking about giving it a try. I have talked to a few people that say the fishing there is great. How is the ice on there now?

I've fished Jamestown Res. in the past and it is a real good early morning and nite bite. Best place I've had luck is East of the Smokie's landing(you'll see all the houses across from the landing). the nite bite around a full moon is the best. set up in about 8-12 feet of water and the Crappies will come in suspended before the walleye's, it can be hard to get your line down to the bottom cause the crappies hit it hard. The Eye's are a little on the small size, but my buddy caught a 6.5 lbs last year. hope that helps!

Fished Jamestown Sat. eve. Talk about tight lipped S.O.B.'s. Fish just staring at your bait, move it slightly, and watch the fastest retreat you can imagine on the Vex. We caught 14 eyes between three of us, but if we would have been able to catch even half of the nice big fish we marked on our electronics, we would have caught 30 eyes and 30 crappies. Definetly going back around the full moon phase to see if that helps.

Me and a couple buddies fished the Res. all day Sat. 7am til 9pm. We came home with 5 eyes and 1 crappie, marked a ton of fish but not many takers. Marking fish on my Zercom all day, jigging off the bottom got lots of looks and a few takers, but overall it was real slow. caught 10-15 eye's total.

What is the deal with the fish in this reservoir? Fished from 3:00 to 8:00 on Monday night and caught NONE. ZERO. ZIP. Tons of nice fish on the Zercom and they WOULD NOT bite. I've never seen fish so spooky and negative. Anyone else having these same problems????

Try some Devils Lake tactics...Slow your jigging down, stopping it all together when you mark fish...don't jig at all, rather quiver the bait...bite off the minnows tail to slow them... try hooking the bait differntly to give a differnt struggle...use a minnow head on a dropper line below a jigging spoon...

    • I guess I started this thread but never gave model name lol. I have the cozyna model air fryer its been great unit and so far non stick surface has been holding up well in dishwasher after every use. Super easy clean up.
    • We really didn't shop around much.... Just bought one off of amazon with good reviews  
    • .... I knew that was coming the second I said "vacuum seal"
    • You could have just boiled them in the bag like Del does.....  
    • Anyone recommend a brand or model?
    • Ended up making some non-breaded steak cubes (aka "Chislic" here in SoDak) that turned out friggin awesome. I took a sirloin tip roast, trimmed it up, and cut it into 1" cubes. I then vacuum sealed them for 6 hrs in a little olive oil, worchester, garlic, and coarse black pepper. I sprinkled on a little lawry's before putting them in. I did two batches... one batch "medium well" for the wife and kids, and one batch medium rare for me. Medium well took 10 min, Medium rare was 6. Turned out awesome! Even the Medium well was still tender and juicy.
    • So what you're saying is if we ever hear him say "I'm going out to the garage to give my blade a love rub" we shouldn't be too worried?
    • I have had 2 of these for a year or so. They work great for fries, tator tots, onion rings, shrimp,chicken strips.and basically anything breaded when you buy it. And they don't need any oil. Only OK if you bread them yourself. For those I spray Pam on them. The only thing is breaded fish fillets are only so so. I still prefer deep frying them. Fish is the only thing I still deep fry. I indulge my self there. Just not as good as deep frying. Pretty much everything else I air fry.
    • You missed the part about "All my blades are hand rubbed with love" 
    • I drink schells fairly regularly. I  consider them in the "craft" category.   Snowstorm is always interesting.  I had sort of forgotten about it until just now.  I need to pick some up.
