      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 .

So there's the Good Neighboor fishing Tourney on the lake this Saturday. The guy running the contest said he is hoping to get about 130-170 people. Roughly 70 some boats. So the question I have is...where do I go on this lake to find the biggest bass and Northern? I've fished the lake maybe 2 times in my entire life.

There is alot of places that you can fish on Howard Lake. The problem that your going to run into, is that your going to have 70 boats on a lake that cant take that many boats. So the thing that your going to have to do, is get to a spot that you think can produce fish, and hit it hard.

There is alot of awesome places that you can fish on that lake. Docks have been good in years past, if the lake has not turned over and become very green. The reeds carry fish, but everyone and there mother fish it.

Thx BNS, I wanted to fish it this past weekend, but instead hit Clearwater. I'm guessing I'll start with the docks for a couple hours and if that produces nothing, then move deeper. We'll be throwing mostly Chatter, Spinner and Sluggos.

Just giving a quick update on the results of the Good Neighboor days fishing Tourney today

Biggest Walleye 6.1 lbs

Biggest Northing 9 lbs

Biggest Bass 5.11 lbs

First time I fished the lake in about 5 years and on my 3rd cast of the day I caught a 3.48 lb Bass. Unfortunatly that was the last fish I caught till 10 minutes before the end of the tourney when I hooked a 2 pound bass. I did have one huge northern come flying out of the water at my lure as I was taking the lure out of the water. Would've gave that 9 lb Northern a run for its money.

55 boats

It was kind of funny toward the end of the day we were trolling the shore line and hitting the docks and we went around this one guy, my partner asks him hows the fishing and he just went off. He says he doesn't even know why he came out to this F*%$ing lake today. He was complaining about there being way to many boats on the lake and how he went over to his favorite dock and watched a couple guys pulled 3 big bass out of it and how it was his dock. Then he says that he should have realized it when he pulled up to the launch and seen all the boats that he should have just turned around and went to a different lake. I'm just listening to him and thinking no sh!t....

      From someone who grew up as a back reeling aficionado, I've learned to appreciate a quality drag on a reel.  It's the one thing I'll gladly pay for. Modern drag systems are so much better than they used to be.  Not taking advantage of them is leaving a lot of the value of a quality reel on the table.  Unused and wasted. So, is that the kind of opinion you were looking for?

      They are already established in OT.  Pulled docks at my sisters place with about 75% covered in zebes.  Wear shoes when your in the water.

      I noticed this spring that the higher end Shimano Stradic and others have eliminated the ability to back reel (no reverse) which I believe is a huge mistake, I don't like it!    any others have comments?

      Went up north grouse hunting it was fun. I must say having a dog makes it better.  This weekend is duck opener and I am jacked up for it.

      The public launch at The Landing on the west end stays open until the ice sets in, but they do pull the dock sometimes around the end of October / beginning of November.

      Just curious if people are finding fish moving into fall patterns yet or still finding them in more summer locations?  I've been finding good sized panfish in deeper water myself around more mid lake structure. Most of the lakes I've been on are still pretty green with algae and weeds.
