      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 .

Who is all heading out to the pond this weekend?

Recommended Posts

Myself and two friends are heading out tomorrow (Sat) at about 3:30am should at least be on the lake by 5:30am or so. So far winds out of the NE calm to 5MPH and then turning out of the SE at 5MPH high 80 to 85 with a slight chance of rain or a thunderstorm in the afternoon.

I don't know if I should head to the flats in the morning or hit up a reef like Sloppy Joe's or something. I will have more electronics than a Snoop Dogg Concert (Vexilar, GPS w/LakeMaster, Aqua-View) so finding the spots and fish should be easy. It is just what to fish in the morning and then in the afternoon.

Do I fish the flats that early in the morning with a bobber or do I hit up a reef?

Also when fishing a flat, something I have never done, do you fish on top of a flat or on the steep edges of it? I have the presentations all setup. But for the Bachelor party of sorts we are not really looking to keep any fish, just want to catch and release everything we catch. Any help would be great, thanks fellas!

I'll be there. My first time fishing Mille Lacs. My buddy who fishes there a lot is taking me on a fully guided trip. All he would tell me is that we're fishing in the mud.

Fished 7 mile flats on Thursday am...excellent fishing.

Most of our fish were in deeper water (30+) around the edges.

Lindy rigs with crawler or leech, both worked great.

caught: 28 1/2, 27 1/2, 26(2), 25 1/2, 25(2), 24 1/2, 23 1/2, 22(2), 21.

Didn't take any home but had a blast.

Good luck.

      It’s been interesting in Central MN so far.  There are plenty of lakes that have very walkable ice and ice that could hold ATV traffic but also several that stayed mostly to partly open for longer than expected.  Several lakes have both rideable ice and open water as of last weekend. There are only a couple lakes that I’ve been tracking that I would commit to an ATV ride on right now, especially with the new snow cover.  We lost the ability to see what “generation” of ice you were on this week.  On the plus side, we’ve had good ice making conditions all week. Short story: There are lakes that are ready to fish but don’t assume they all are.  Phone ahead to a resort or bait shop to find out about particular lakes if you don’t get the info here.  Buy your bait at the shop that gives you your key info. Be extra cautious this weekend until you’ve proven the ice you want to fish.

      As far as I know, never been there.  I know it's great for splake, browns and lakers.

      A return client for a couple years brought fish grips with him... After watching him mangle a couple fish I asked him not to bring them anymore. Big fish need more care when landing in my experience. I hand land most muskies. This helps with not bringing a green (not ready) fish into the boat to hurt itself and the boat. With musky fishing growing in popularity I'm noticing a lot more fish with net scars from green fish. For a young musky angler learn correct technique early. The scars after a 4 fish day are a badge of honor. One of the best gifts I've received for my musky gear is a good pair of wire cutters. I use them to cut hooks in an emergency or out of a poorly hooked fish. Or if you can find it...a jar of musky slime cologne, my wife loves it. Ha! Good luck
