      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 .

Spoke to a friend of mine who lives near the landing, he tells me they did dredge it out some and they supposedly are going to be tarring a parking lot. The swimmming beach will now be where the old landing was. They took down the old shed(Shelter) down and cut down all the trees that were there. I fish this lake all the time, I went down there the day before did much work and was suprised to see all the reeds in the swimming area. Where they are putting the new landing, they had to remove some reeds, so the reeds they removed, they put where the swimming beach was. I can't wait to get down there to see the changes.

Spoke to my friend last night that lives near the landing, They worked Monday on it and has not seen them since, Looks like it is ready to be paved, but doesn't know what they are waiting for. He say's there is something in front of the landing so you can't launch a boat. He is going to keep me posted, and I will post it here when I hear something.

What if they only dig it out mediocre?

I landed there once this spring when the wind was blowing into that shore at about 25 mph...It was fun to say the least.

They moved the landing down to the East end of the property. I grew up right next to where the landing is going to be. It used to drop of there somewhat, But my friend who lives by there, Said he thinks they dredged it out some, but wasn't positive.

Just an Update on the landing: They put Curb and gutter in this week, still no Asphalt. Guess the landing is still closed.

Took a drive down to see the Francis Landing. They do have the base coat of asphalt down. They made parking for about 15 or so trailers. The landing itself looks to much deeper, they have only taken out the reeds where the concrete part of the ramp is at. They need to get the reeds out, so you can get out to the lake. It is looking really nice except, They planted grass on a small portion of the hillside, and some (Contact Us Please) thought it would be cool to ride ATV up the hill and mess up the new grass seed.

Anyways, landing still closed.

I guess the landing is open. The reeds out in front of the landing have not been removed, don't know what the plans are for that. Might go out there and give it a try today and will let you know what the landing is like later.

I am interested in seeing the new landing. I remember how hard it was to land a boat at the old one, so im guessing it cant be that bad.

I see what your saying about everyone not going out there. Its a great lake.

      The wife and I were up to L O W  for whole week. Great weather, good fishing and fun time. Was able to fish 7 days split up between Morris point, Long point and the river. For me Long point was the better bite. May have seen a couple members of outdoors Mn on Tuesday out of LP. Let me know if I'm right. Also met member from Wisc. at Morris point( real good guy) Anyway didn't seem to matter much what color jig caught them on every color with frozen shiner. Some days were better then others but always caught fish. Ate several meals of fish and brought fish home. Also caught a 14 in perch that I brought into taxidermist. Plan on going back at least one more time this fall . ( Too good not to).

      Got some grouse and saw some nice coveys. The biggest was 6 birds but found couple groups of 5. That is always fun.
    • eyeguy 54
      we mainly jigged fatheads in front of their mouths. 2 weeks ago also and tried a few different times over 3 days this trip. water is still crazy low so I don't think many boats will be using access. Also tried a couple different plastics and some gulp. Probably ready to go crazy up there soon.  Last year at this time it was really good. Might get there once more before ice time but not sure.

      Been thinking about breaking out the Jiggin Raps, might have to give that a shot. It's been too crowded out there this weekend with MEA going on.

      Sounds good! May an oversized deer with obscenely large antlers find its way to you!

      Well the weather was pretty crappy but the fish were biting...Had to sort through but kept some for dinner. Caught a variety today, eyes,jumbos,crappie and a few smallies... rigging on or next to rocks worked best for us.

      hummm, hadn't heard a thing?
