      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 .

Where should I fish

Recommended Posts

CWKyle

Next weekend will be very close to the full moon and I'll be at the lake for the weekend without kids. Where should I go to find some walleyes? I will be staying on 6th Crow Wing, but was considering Long or Big Sand. I thought about long line trolling or lead core trolling with crank baits at night? Any advice?

I haven't the other two lakes you mentioned but do fish the 6th quite often. walleye fishing can be quite good there this time of year. My suggestion would be to find the very edge of the weed line(about 15.5-16.5fow)in the early morning or evening and drift or slow troll leechs or crawlers until you find some large bluegills stop and anchor and bobber fish until dark. the walleyes will be mixed in with the sunfish. we average 5-6 a night(walleyes). Please use restraint keeping the sunfish if you do, they can be very special in size also.

good luck

Thanks ANYFISH,

Any particular structure or areas of the lake that you would recommend? I've fished the point near the entrance to the eastern bay and the one just north of the public access before. Any others I should be looking for?

If you are going to be playing the full moon card= night trolling you should head to Long. Long has a great population of good sized eyes and they seem to be very catchable trolling after dark. I am sure the full moon will only enhance this presentation. Check in with Muskybug on the latest I know he has been out doin some trolling on Long. You can catch him at Northern Bait in Park Rapids.

tight lines

Those are two good starting points. but the entire weedline can be good. On the west by the access look for areas where the drop goes from steep to more gradual they seem to hold tighter there or maybe just easier for me to bobber fish! I have not had much luck along the north shore. I have never put much time in on the hump in the middle of the lake but have seen people fishing it ( a little hard to find) but that might be another option.

Hope this helps, don't catch 'em all!
