      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 .

I am supposed to be making my first trip down to Madison Lake tomorrow to meet my dad for a day of fishing. He is coming up from northern Iowa and I am coming down from Shakopee. He just called and was wondering if the 20 to 30 mph winds that are forecasted for tomorrow are going to impact us. He is not a big fan of battling the waves and what not. My thought is that Madison is small enough it won't get bad but I don't know for sure since I have never fished it. So will it be pretty rough if the wind does hit 30 mphs? Also, are most of the ramps pretty protected if the wind does get bad? Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Thanks

There are Three landings on Madison. One will be out of the wind.

Regardless of direction, I would recommend either using the DNR landing South and East of The Narrows or Bray Park. As for fishing the wind out there, lots of places to "hide". Good luck!

Most people are not big fans of the wind but it can really turn on the walleyes on madison.

We decided to postpone the trip until tomorrow (Thursday). Hopefully we have goodluck. If we find some fish this could be a great lake for my dad and I to meet at. I am open for any pointers. We will most likely target crappies but wouldn't mind catching some walleye.

I was on Tetonka Tuesday morning. All I can say is that it was rough. The wind ran straight down the entire lake. There were 2 little boats hiding out of the wind behind McPete's point when I left at 10-10:30. I hope they waited until the afternoon when the wind dropped some. I loaded and the radio said the wind was gusting at 38 mph. No fish is worth not being safe.

There were 2-3 boats that dropped in and were fishing in front of the hatchery pier in Antl's bay. That was about the only spot out of the wind (and that wind was swirling) besides hiding by Cram's or McPete's.

When the wind is blowing as you said. Try fishing the edge of the chop at Willow point (just north of the landing). Big bass do use that drop off area when big waves are rolling over the shallow bar. The Norhterns will mainly use the slack water near the landing. So you will catch some Norhterns near Willow point but the Bass are there .

My dad and I met at about 8 ok and Reel Fish and Tackle and were on the water by 9. It was a great time, despite being hailed on. We are still learning when it comes to fishing but were able to still put ten nice sized crappies in the livewell while throwing a number back. We also caught a couple of perch along with a couple of blue gills. It was a ton of fun and I think we will be back.
