      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 .

River Walleyes

Recommended Posts

I think I'll leave the lakes to the masses and open on the local river. Any good suggestions for baits, colors, action, etc. you'd use for walleyes?

Can you be more specific? Where exactly are you thinking about going? There are some big differences between fishing Lake Pepin and fishing up by Brainerd.

I'm going to be pulling spinners on the river looking for gravel areas above deep holes. I don't know much but this is what worked for me last year. Also will be casting some swimbaits around the sandbars and drops if there's no action on the spinners.

I'm thinking about fishing the mouth of a small river that comes into the mississippi around little falls. There's also a good sized sand bar that goes from 2ft-10ft very quickly at the mouth and a small backwater that gets down to about 6 feet just to the north. The miss. isn't very deep in this area as the deepest holes around are less than 15ft.

Any ideas to try or suggestions??

Should have been more specific. This is a small river in western Minnesota that is barely big enough for a 14' boat. I was think starting with a hammered gold spinner and a night crawler. Might hookup with a decent "cat" too. Thought I would bring fatheads and leaches and do some jigging by deeper holes, meaning a 5' deep depression. Rapalas have worked well also over the years.

I'd say you're headed in the right direction, especially if you know something has worked well "over the years".

If your planning on fishing the Brainerd area change your plans now. The river is aprox 3 to 5 fthigh right now and the landing is under water. The only other landing is the state park and if I remember, that wont be much fun either to try to land a boat.

Looks like ill be joining the masses on gull.

Enless it goes down in 3 days. NOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It depends on the river and where in it you were planning to fish. Y0u have to give us a bit more info in order for us to help, ducker? It will depend on things like water levels, water clarity, are you going to fish a hole, or a run, or a ripple? Things like that? Please be more specific?

    • Yup so far this season would have had 2 nice ones with a shotgun I just keep telling myself archery is life lol
    • Doesn't get any better than that. Pic says it all. Congrats  
    • Well not the most attractive option but when the kids are out playing in the sprinkler you could get a roll of nonslip pool matting to roll out then put in the garage during the fall-winter? 
    •   OK, then how about stripping the sealer if that is what makes it slippery.   After a few years it really isn't necessary, since the concrete is mostly cured by then (yeah it keeps curing for decades but most of it is done in a year or two).     I guess if you like the glossy look then maybe the sand in the sealer thing is worth a try.
    • Season ended just like I thought it would and happy Leipold held true to his word and moved on from Fletcher...he did some good things but overall did a poor job building a team that can compete at a high level unfortunately.  It will be interesting to see how the new GM handles this situation...getting rid of under-performers will not be easy and what in return? Going to be one of those down before heading back up deals. Coyle will be the first to go IMO, Granny can go as far as I'm concerned...gotta sign Zucker even though he was terrible in the playoffs, Nino is a question mark, Staal might need to go with the up year he had but long in the tooth and now would be the only time to get anything for him, Ennis (terrible player) will be bought out, Foligno (terrible) probably not tradeable with his contract...enjoy the ride Wild fans!
    • We packed four of us in the blind and had a blast!  Just about ready to give up and gave "one last call" only to have the birds blow up not 30 yards away from us.  One of the gobblers rubbed against the blind for two feet as he walked into the deeks- pretty dang cool!  Ryan made a perfect shot and dropped the bird in his tracks.  
    • Ryan.pdf The pdf shows up as a link for me.  Is that ok Borch?  
    • Twins are 33-91 against the Yankees since 2002! Its unbelievable how awful they play against them.    Stanton absolutely murdered that hanging curveball for a HR last night.
    • I was looking for reviews last night but only found a handful and they didn't really give me that much info. They seemed to be overall positive reviews but all were written after recently applying it so no info on longevity.
