      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 .

Just got back from a week fishing the Kenai in Soldotna.  Wow did we time the run of the sockeyes right this year.  Fast and furious action.  We went down to Seward for 1 day of charter fishing and had our limit of halibut, rockfish and silvers by 12:30.  Best Alaskan trip I've been on by far!

Went last year and timed it right as well... Will be going next year again my uncle has a cabin right in Soldotna have not talked to him yet this year but looks like they did well too.

 

What dates were you up there this year? Did they raise the limits any of the days or did it stay at 3 a day?

All so did they do much emergency netting while you were there?

What the Heck does this mean?

" All so did they do much emergency netting while you were there? " 

Sometimes they put out an emergency order saying that the commercial guys can net that day usually fishing is not the greatest the day after as they net at the mouth of the river

 

Last year they did it almost every other day so some days you had to work for your limit

And by work I mean a couple hours most days I could bang my limit out in an hour or less

The last two days I was their though they raised the limit to 6 a day so that was nice I started fishing at 10pm-4am and no crowds and could usually get my daily limit for on day before midnight and the next by 1am or sooner

 

 

Just a way to control the number of salmon getting into Skilak lake as they have a certain number they want to hit.

I did the trip in 2014 and last year, amazing time, I highly recommend doing it some day. Good Lord willing I will be back up there next July. Here is a pic of a bear fishing the river right across from us in 2014.

I was there july 24-31.   The limit was still 3 the entire time.   They shut down the commercial netting from July 23-30, so that probably had a lot to do with our success.
