      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 .

Thinking about making a run up to Minnewaska this weekend to go after some sunfish. Anybody been having any luck? How deep? By the rushes on the west side? Thanks, any advice would be appreciated!

I don't fish too much for sunnies, but I did catch a few big, thick ones yesterday at sunset. Was trolling with spinner and crawler along the South side in ~15 FOW.

How big is big and thick? I hear and have read and experienced the fishing for bluegills on Waska and you can get good eaters but never got anything over 9". Read that Genz said this is one of the top panfishing lakes in the state with you getting many 3 to a 1 lb. That really isn't that good in my book.

We had good luck on Sat, went out on the south side and caught a nice bunch of sunfish. Not huge but good eaters!!! Ended up taking home quite a few small ones because they were hooked deep. They were biting on everything, leeches, wax worms, nightcrawlers, even my wifes gum.

Kind of torqued me off, I watched a guy feeding the small sunfish that he didn't want to the pelicans - is that right? Those small ones will be next years big ones!!

I didn't keep the Sunnies so I didn't pay too much attention to their size. About all I can say is they completely filled my hand when I was unhooking them. I don't have Andre the Giant hands, but I am 6'2" - 6'3" and large frame.

No he shouldn't be doing that with sunfish. If he want's to feed the pelicans catch sheephead, doggies, & the like. Anybody that's ever fished Red in the summer knows that pelicans like sheepshead & Waska has quite a few of them...

well ya 3 to a pound is good when you don't catch anything bigger, which is usually the case for most central minnesota lakes, because of the pressure they recieve, nothing's kept hush/secret. But I am talking about catching 1/2-3/4 lb gills to eat, and I know most guys in the central part of the state would just go nuts for catching gills that big!

The 3/4 lb to 1 lb and up gills you are suppose to release which is usually 9, 9 1/2" to 10 1/2" or bigger unless you want to mount a pound bluegill which is fine, cuz you have every right to do so, or if you want eat it.
