      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 .

Leaving for the family resort (kitchi landing) on wed (8-08-07). Wanting to know the hotspots for LMB and pike. We plan on spending time on Kitchi, walker's bay, turtle river, little and big rice. Might get out to cass when my buddy visits. Thanks

Lots of small pike in Kitchi in the reeds on the far eastern shoreline bay. We use the plain silver No. 3 Mepps and have pretty good luck in there in June. I suppose in this heat you need to fish it early or late as I think they are in deeper water during the day.

If I was staying on Kitchi, I'd definitely try the shoreline reeds on the far NW shore/bay too and I'd try to get up to BigRice for LMB - never been there but have heard several diff guys suggest it for LMB because they say it has lots of hawgs.

For Pike, definitely fish around the deepest water in the basin. The cabbage and lilly pads on the NW corner of Kitchi is good. And the whole eastern side of Walker Bay... especially where the dropoff runs right up next to shore... should be good. Might need to fish some crankbaits or plastics to get down there to the fish during the day, but they should be there.

For Bass, kind of the same story, but in shallower. I've always done best in Kitchi/Walker Bay in the reeds and slop closest to some deeper water. Early morning/Evening... throw weedless topwater plastic type baits in the pockets of the heaviest cover. Hard to imagine they've got room to swim in there, but that's where I've found them. Good luck... and let us know how you do!

      I checked a small lake in Arden Hills after work yesterday. Measured 3-4”. Should be ready for me to actually fish next time.
