      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 .

Someone said awhile ago in another post that trolling cranks during mid-day worked well for them on Stalker. I found a great mid-day crank bite on another lake and it's been fun. grin.gif May have to try Stalker, and show pics to the "professional skeptic" on this site. LOL

Who you callin' a "professional skeptic"? Just because I never catch anything on Stalker doesn't make me a skeptic. It makes me a less than skilled angler.

Besides, I can't row fast enough to pull cranks in the middle of the day and my 1974 Johnson is out of service.

All this talk about Stalker, I just had to give it a try for a couple hours. I've never been there in a boat.

carp killer, no gar. Water clarity is like 3'. I found a big algae bloom out there.

Ufatz, there are plenty of bass out there. Walleye too. grin.gif Think really, really small. Bass and walleye did not want anything "typical". Plastics, cranks, spinnerbaits, etc did not work at all for bass. Walleye shallow in the weeds and bass on the dropoffs.

That lake is not easy to troll at all. crazy.gif Breaklines are murder out there. No luck.

A bass club was out there and it sounded like it was slow.

I'd be glad to share my tactics if you like via email. wink.gif

I have often found them on a hot, calm day sunning them selves on the center flats, or in some of the near shore shoals. Check out the channel between the two lobes leading to the outlet.

Whaddaya mean dogfish don't taste as good as gar? Heck, to my mind Velocaraptor and Tricopterus taste the same as gar. Heck, all that prehistoric stuff tastes the same after a while though doesn't it. Gars and "dogfish" are probably millions of years old. They are actually pretty canny fish. But, like Rosie O'Donnel, they are pretty butt ugly and mean. grin.gif

You guys are making me sick, I just do not think I could ever try to eat either fish, yuck! Just an opinion. Try German lake for Gar.

      Well, I have to pay for registration on my boat trailer to run it on the road, and the boat to run it on the lake, why shouldn't wheel houses?  I guess I don't feel bad for the wheel house guys.

      No not yesterday. 2 weeks ago when we had that first cold spell I went out on Baxter, Blue and Long and checked the ice. They were locked up but only had 1-2" inches so didn't venture out too far. Baxter probably was walkable but had open water on the back end so figured I stay off. Last Sunday I went and checked them out after that warm rainy week we had and they had open water, so yesterday I skipped checking them and went farther north. But I did notice most lakes were locked up on the drive up there. Cant wait for the local lakes to get some decent ice!

      Wondering if big sandy is clear enough to spear fish when the ice comes on? Never done it before and would like to give it a try
    • monstermoose78
      Bryan did you check any lakes around me?
    • Bryan P
      Had to scratch the ice fishing itch, so I drove up north to the Mille Lacs lake area and found a smaller lake with 4-5" of ice. Punch a few holes and found some crappies and sunnies. Nothing big but was fun time and a great way to start my ice seaso n! Bring on the ice!  Check out the video: https://youtu.be/BTTv_G07PB8

      Hey, I resemble that remark!!   Plus my wife only went fishing with me once the whole time that we have been married and she brought a book! I got her trained in right away. Sorry about your training problem!

      Ok but with all those Trout. Bring a tow rope as I may be stuck in the slush!
