      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 .

Isn't that somthing!

A White Bass is a true Bass and a Large and smallmouth Bass are in the sunfish famly. So you don't look for (true) Bass info in the Bass form you look in the panfish form.

Isn't that somthing!

Right now True Bass are starting to move up into feeder creeks and biulding up behind small dams. If I were you I would find a few of these small dams and make a milk run. Watch and see what the other fishermen are using (start with a white twister tail) and catching.

The Hmong like White Bass so if you find them see if there catching White Bass.

I'm heading out in a few minuntes and I'll give an update later today.

I'm back.

I fished a small river in the area today. Sorry, no White Bass! There were to many Walleye in the area. After 8 Walleyes in 8 casts I figured if there were White Bass in the area they weren’t able to get a look at my lure. It looks like I’ll have to wait for the full moon to come and go before I try that spot again for White Bass.

Well, to be fair, lots of people lump white Bass in with panfish - it may not be technically correct, but it is the way it is.

It's all good though - Muddog, you are a wealth of good information, and I appreciate all the help you bring, along with all the other guys as well.

Pool #4 is all the water in the Mississippi river from Red Wing Mn (Water containment device #3) to Alma Wisconsin (Water containment device #4).

You would think on a fishing fourm you would be able to say the D** word. Moristown is the best little town by a Dam site.

Pool 2 in the cities has a bunch of them. Watch the pool 2-3 forum and you should start to see updates on where people are catching them as soon as the water level goes down.

The MN river also has them.

Hey Dam is working L I B.

White Bass are moving all the time! If I were to say they were in one spot today there is a vary good chance they won't be there tomarrow. You have to get out and fish! Look for Sea Gulls. Look for small Dams, Inlets to rivers. Just remember, they are moving ALL THE TIME if the bite slows they have moved!

If you get a chance, hit Devil's lake in ND early June. You don't even need a boat. They are cruising windblown shorelines or in their spawning bays. We killed them a couple of years ago. Lake was way too rough for boating so we just cruised Highway 2 looking for shoreline that looked good. We found a side road that was built up with rock and had some wind blowing on it. We could see the WB cruising by about 6 feet from the shore. Twisters, small topwaters, little Rattle Raps. Real feisty fighters. Also, big Northerns waiting a little further offshore for "strays". Big X-Raps, Spooks, and Spinnerbaits. It was great. Fishing from shore just like when you were little.

Phooj,

It's on US Highway 2 Just past the city of Devil's Lake. When we were there, the WB were in the area known as "Channel A" as well as along the rocky shores of elevated roads. You can download a very good lake map off the internet. The lake is huge, you can't really miss it. There are different roads you can go on around the lake. I was there with my buddy and his uncle who has a trailer at one of the resorts there so I didn't know where I was most of the time. Like I said in the previous post, the lake was too windy to take the boat out but that did not hamper us with the WB and Northerns. Seriously, bring wire leaders. We had to trek back into town a couple of times to reload the rattle rap supply. Hardware store had the #8's on sale for $1.99. That helped. Average snot rocket was about five pounds off the shore. Our WB's went about 2 pounds.

Kind of off topic, but how do they taste? I've heard from some guys they taste like crappies. Is this true?

    • Thank you for the responses. I do know it’s a right of wayband not blockable...except...I seen one coming and did park in the area after work this week.  In a split second she/he turned around and went the other way. My truck would fill the approach but I only had the car that day.—this response is what I’m trying to avoid. knoppers-there was no bank there...there were little dots through the snow that was pulled back onto the driveway. Heck, he was up near the tree line. Wanderer-it’s a small rural area, I’ll be the ... The snow and ice is melting down to the tar today, they drove in it anyway. It’s 130 am and ya...time for jumping. Thanks for all the answers. I don’t feel alone in feeling it’s rude. That helps. 
    • I would think so, it would be no different than parking on the shoulder of the road. my commit was more related to people that put up barriers, to keep others from crossing there approach.
    •   Sounds plausible to me.  Is the thickened footing in your mind the same as pouring the perimeter of the slab thicker?  We did an 8 inch perimeter around the 4 inch slab.
    • Yes. But on a post framed building the only think I ever see is a thickened footing and not a foundation to the frost line. A major benefit of post framing is that you install the posts below the frost line so the need for a concrete foundation below the frost line is not needed. If I am understanding the question correctly. 
    • FYI driveway approaches are on the public right of way, you may not block them, or place anything that can injure someone.   May a person park their own vehicle in their own driveway approach?
    • I think they’re more looking at the footings requirement, aren’t they?  Thus the reason for getting the poles below the frost line?   Its the township’s responsibility to figure this out and you have the right to ask them to cite the code they’re following.   I used to live in Isanti County and dealt with a building inspector from my township on the construction of my detached garage.  Things weren’t very strict to say the least.     We built everything by the current UBC code, so I’d suggest first getting a copy of the current version of that since this building will actually be your home.  Don’t take unnecessary shortcuts to save a few bucks up front.  You’ll eventually regret it.   Reading your plans for the slab, it sounds pretty good.  There are plenty of slab homes out there built the way you describe.  What you don’t want is movement.     I’m not an expert by any means but I think footings on your slab wouldn’t be a bad idea and sinking your poles that deep should be a requirement.  If you don’t do footings, at least pour your slab thicker on the perimeter to hold it better.    Your local Authority Having Jurisdiction (AHJ) can be more restrictive than code, but not less.  So if it’s defined in the UBC, you have to do at least that much.
    • I’ve personally been on both sides of this.   Used to love getting as much air as possible over driveways but I never understood gunning it on the other side after crossing.  I guess some are just mild adrenaline junkies.    I quit doing that for one, because it’s illegal, and two, not safe if the homeowner happens to be leaving or getting the mail at the time.   Now that I have a posted trail going over my driveway, I find it just rude, obnoxious and irritating to deal with 4 wheelers and sleds gunning it over the gravel and making ruts and eroding my base to the point of it being an expense to either plow and pack the class 5 back in place or spend the money to pave it.  I hate having to bounce over two ruts with my trailers and whatever I’m hauling in them too.   I think that’s the worst part for me.  Either jump it or be mellow on the throttle the entire way over.   I’ve seen trail groomers go around driveways before, making me wonder if that truly is a requirement or they were simply being courteous.  But I agree with knoppers, they should not drag over the driveway.  Maybe they think they’re taking the snow off for ya.  Call the people responsible for the trail and ask them for suggestions.  
    • If you want to get through ice fast and are going to re-tool for it completely, look at a Nils before making your final decision. 
    • I am fully aware of this as are most people.
    • some people are bad apples that give the sport a bad name, I as a snowmobiler have respect for driveways. FYI driveway approaches are on the public right of way, you may not block them, or place anything that can injure someone. trail groomers actually do you a favor by knocking down the bank, to keep it level. unless your groomer was not well trained, they will not groom over your driveway.
