      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 .

Does anyone fish Swan Lake near Pengilly?

It seems, looking at the last couple of months of postings, that not much information concerning Swan Lake is available. Has anyone out there reading FM been on the lake recently? If you were, what were your results? I have not fished the lake for almost 3 years, but gas prices are forcing me to stay closer to home. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

I use to fish it alot when i lived up there. I haven't heard anything recently, but I know they were doing good earlier this summer. My advice is simply this, wait till deer hunting season to head up there, in my opinion it's one of the best big pike lakes in the state

Thanks for the reply fish! Now I'm going to ask the question this way. Are there any LIVE human beings out there that have fished Swan in the last couple of months, if there are please respond. I am not asking for anyone to give away their honeyhole secrets. I am asking if you caught any walleyes you could put on the table and enjoy.

I wanted to respond just to let you know that someone is reading your plea. I don't fish the lake, but I have a cousin that bought a place there this past summer. I spoke with her husband, and he is having a hard time getting info out of people. From growing up in Hibbing, it was my understanding that the lake had nice walleyes and pike. Sorry I can't help you, but I look forward to someone chiming in.

I always see people fishing the long shoreline on the right when you head out from the boat landing. Then around the corner also.

2 weeks ago I heard that the fishing was slow,,,but seems walleye fishing is picking up on all area lakes this week.

Yes there are walleyes in Swan and they do bite. The weedline breaks have been producing walleyes all summer. try a small spinner and crawler / leech for another few weeks. They should be going back to minnows soon.

I just talked to a buddy of mine and he's been doing ok, not tremendous. I won't give any specific spots, but most of his fish have been coming off the west shore in 16-24 fow on leeches. I'd also recomend trying off elephant rock this time of year. Also, the north shore can be good, but it's a very spotty bite. My main suggestion would be to follow the boats until you find out their daily pattern and then find your own fish?

Thanks Fish. Too bad Elephant Rock is no longer such a prominent landmark on the lake. There are many landmarks along the lakeshore that are no longer there. The old red screen house, the smiley face, the East landing tree house are gone. Also gone is the friendliness of the property owners. Do not fish too close to their dock, you might catch one of THEIR fish. Thanks again fish.
