      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 .

Walleyes are still hitting, again and again and again. The walleyes have become so aggressive many boats are hiring local kids along with the unemployed just to run the net as it is a full time job when targeting walleyes in 5-7 ½ feet of water with 1/8 oz jigs tipped with shiners under bobbers worked by the wave action. Many anglers are also reporting success working bright colored jigs aggressively along the bottom.

The crappie bite becomes more difficult as the crappies slowly begin to disperse into the deeper waters. Although many fish currently remain shallow and grouped up for the angler that is willing to work several spots looking pockets or schools of active crappies. Bets reports as of lately are coming from anglers working 1/16 oz jigs under bobbers tipped with small shiners suspended 18 inches off the bottom.

The waters are finally starting to warm up and the pike are liking it. Pike are still on the sluggish side and yet to fully but on the feed bags although the pike fishing gets better and better every day. The best results have come from anglers jig fishing larger plastic on heavy jigs such as the Stick-Um jigs, Esox jigs and J-Mac jigs. Blacks, browns and the old standby orange dropped into 4 feet of water and hopped back into 6 feet of water appear to be what these gators are looking for in a mid day snack.

Good Luck and enjoy the outdoors.

      Has anyone ever stored with Oak Narrows Storage before? Need a spot to put a Polaris Ranger for the winter and thinking of calling them for a space, does anyone have any experience or feedback? Any other recommendations would be welcome. Need a 10x10 or 10x12 space likely.
      Thanks!

      the rum is back in its banks so bet the fishing is amazing? Anyone out trying? Where are all of you? I know it’s busy time but let us know what you are chasing.

      Tamarack Island Wilderness Lodge is pretty accommodating. Grassy Narrows Lodge is one of the nicer lodges in my opinion on the Canadian Southern portion. We made a point of stopping at a bunch of locations last year and this is good sized and really nice. At this point it would be my preferred Lodge on that portion of the lake. Both of these are boat into and on an island. Ryan

      Good afternoon guys, I live in Burnsville and I was wondering if anyone has had much luck on Crystal Lake for bass and Pike? I've fished it a few times and only caught 2 bass in a total of 8 hours.  Not looking for any specific locations, but any tips would be much appreciated!!!   Live bait? Plastics? Troll cranks for pike? thanks guys, have a great day. Gabe
