      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 .

They can get monster like Dtro said.

20lbs + is not out of the question although highly unusual!

This one was caught by Pike11. He does not know how to load pictures yet, so I thought I would past it up over here. Hopefully he see's it and can chime in on specs. I think it was caught on Pool 2. Nice fish!

The correct name for what we locals call Sheephead is "Freshwater Drum". They are the of the same family as what the folks down along the Gulf of Mexico and along the Southern Atlantic Seaboard call "RedFish".

Sheephead are edible and are quite good as a matter of fact. They are an oily fish and you need some way to get the oil out of the fish before you eat it otherwise it tends to taint the fish like carp. Best way I have used is to gut the fish and scale it. Then make two or three cuts along the entire length of the fish. Place the fish over a drip pan and bake it at low heat for 45 minutes or so until the oil runs out of the fish and is collected in the drip pan.

ANother way is to use a grill with a drip pan under the fish. After the oil has been removed from the fish you can cook it anyway you like. (Fry, Broil, Bake, Soup, etc.) Sheephead taste a bit like Cod or Eelpout.
