      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 .

Just paid $2.69 this morning. If history is an indicator of future trends then gas should drop about 20 cents a gallon following my purchase.

It seems that the price of gas use to follow the price of crude. In the last year the price at the pump can really vary from the price of the crude. Look at all holidays, always an increase right before. The BIG oil companies will do whatever they please. I thought the price was going to go up soon also with the new record high in crude oil and my wife called this morning and said on the way to work that she notice that 1 station she drives by daily went down 20 cents. Who can figure the oil companies or gas stations out. confused.gif

Where on earth did you find that? Eden Prairie area?

I'm just up the road from you and haven't seen anything under $2.95 in the last two weeks. $2.99 has been pretty consistant everywhere in my neighborhood.

Studies show there is a 2 week lag in crude oil fluctuations and pump price fluctuations.

Opec starting pumping more oil, but crude went up because hurricane, and pipeline fears of terrorism, this morning 2 refineries went down because of a lack of power, they take along time to get back up, I am sure that will effect prices. Its all a game of "HOW HIGH CAN WE GO!" And we are just pawns in their big game!

Plymouth - 169 and Rockford Road. Always 10-20 cents cheaper than the Minnetonka/Eden Prairie area.

All this talk about crude prices, refinery shut downs, hurricanes, terrorism.... I am starting to think none of it matters. I think some big oil fat cat gets up in the morning and says, "Honey, I feel like making money today. Let's raise the price of gas 20cents." And we still buy it grin.gif

Not a fat cat...there is just way too many types of gas for a gas refining company to keep up. Then throw in biodisel, e85m, 87 octane, 89octant 91 octane

When was the last time you did not fill up using 87% octane??? I maybe filled 1 or 2 gallons last winter for the strikemaster, but a truck no way....

Gas dropped 15 cents today. So much for the $80 hype. The worst thing that can happen is everyone run out and top off their tanks. Gas is supply and demand and they just love it when the hype machine gets rolling and everyone runs around like the sky is falling filling every last container they've got to save 10 cents.

      My rod bag with 5 rods in it fell off my sled while walking out from the public access on Sat. afternoon.
      I didn't notice until I had walked out to a spot and drilled some holes and started to get set up to fish.
      By the time I walked back to shore the bag had been picked up.


      Please let me know if you have any info.
      Thank you,

      Looked like a good time guys. Wish i could have been there unfortunatly i had to work. I hope i can make the next one.

      Got out Saturday afternoon and after putting in some time drilling holes finally found panfish in 20-24 ft, almost in the basin areas I'd look mid winter.  Crappie and sunfish were mixed and we caught almost all of our fish on a small jig and waxworm.  Tried minnows and only caught a couple fish that way, even when we were catching fish on waxworms in a hole 3 ft away.  They seemed to want something to chase so keeping the jig moving and pulling away from them helped quite a bit.  Had 10" of ice where we were fishing and was pretty consistent, but there's lots of reports of extremely varying ice thickness so keep checking ice thickness on your way out.

      WARNING a buddy was on  MELISSA and was aiming towards the crappie hole in the NE Corner/First break to fish out there last night.  He was checking ice and was having 10" of ice then hit 3"!  Please be careful out there.  Needless to say he turned around and went back to the access.

      Best use I can think of for a selfie stick. Great fish.

      I will second what Icehawk said.... some good lakes around you. Briggs chain is close, some very nice fish in that system. I tend to fish fairly shallow(under 10ft) most of the time 6-8 right in or on the edge of the weeds for the gills.

      Looking for some folks in the area. Have you guys ever fished Borden lake near Garrison? I fished Maple lake last week with a lot of small crappie caught.  I let them all go, biggest was 9". Fished few lakes in that area with no luck. Even went to my little honey home with little succes Looking take the GF out tomorrow morning.  Any ideas? Seen someone posted about crappie in Pearl. 
    • HoleHoppingGills
      I was out last Sunday and there was solid 3.5 black ice. It's been s week now so guessing around 6 inches in northeast bay.  All crappie I caught were small besides on 9 incher I let go.
