      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 .

Sarah Saturday FM Get-Together!!!!

Recommended Posts

Bring on the cold, bring on the ice, and let's hit the hard water for the first winter FM get together on Lake Sarah! That's right gang, the first ever Sarah Saturday is Jan 12, 2008 on Lake Sarah in southwest Minnesota. You only get one chance to be part of the first time - don't let it get away!

We will meet at the west side county park at 8:00 am and head out together, or you can trickle onto to the lake any time during the day. Then it's perch and walleye time, big time. This is an excellent opportunity to meet, greet, and share in some good times with your fellow FM members and friendly neighborhood FM staff. Entry fees?? We don't need no stinkin entry fees - this isn't a tournament, just a chance to get together and have some fun.

And this isn't just for the guys! Sarah Saturday is also for the wife, the kids, Uncle Fred, Grampa Walton or whoever you can drag along. The adult that catches the largest walleye will take home the coveted title of King Friday and a great reward. The youngster that catches the biggest fish will also be rewarded, will be dubbed Prince (or Princess) Tuesday and can wear the title proudly for a year.

The best way to get there is hit HWY 59 north of Slayton to CTY 16 to the county park. There are signs on the roads so you can't miss it.

In keeping with the Minnesota tradition that is potluck, bring along whatever tempts your own tastebuds and we'll all share. There will be a few grills out on the lake if anyone wants to toss anything on a fire. We'll have a campstove also, for anyone who needs it.

For those not in the know, Lake Sarah has been labeled by many as the best walleye lake in southern Minnesota and one of the top 10 walleye lakes in the state. That is a bold statement in a state that dubs the walleye it's state fish, and it is backed up by DNR data. Sarah is a walleye goldmine due to it's rocky and rubble bottom and the best part is the "Eyes" are the product of natural reproduction!!! Sarah is such a goldmine the DNR is doing genetic studies on Sarah's walleyes to determine what factors make them do so well in an area not known for walleye production. What does this all mean to us???? Bobbers down and flags up!!!!!

I'm there, who's joining in on the fun??

*******UPDATE*******UPDATE*********UPDATE**********

Due to snow and some slushy conditions, we're changing the meeting place from the west county park, to the north landing. No big deal, they are fairly close to each other.

From HWY 59 turn west on CTY 16. Go about 3 miles on 16. CTY 16 "T's" with CTY 30. Turn north (right) on CTY 30. (it's gravel) go about a mile and a half on 30. You will drive right past the road to the county park, keep going on CTY 30 to the next gravel road on the right, 216th ave. Turn right on 216th. There is a "Dead End" sign on the road, and a small "Public Access" sign also. This road stops at the landing.

I'm going to bring my perm house out there so we have a main meeting place. I'll also bring a couple of portable houses for people to use if so desired. I'll have a couple of grills and a cook stove. It's potluck so bring some of your most delicious chow.

I drove on the lake, drilled a bunch of holes, and measured ice thickness. It averages right around a foot. Some of the absolute best fishing is around the point to the south of where we will meet. It's fairly slushy getting there and the weather is supposed to warm up. If you have a sled or wheeler that would be the best way to get around if you want to do a bunch of hole hopping.

Boilerguy,

Sounds like a great time, but you had better send them west from Hwy 59, not east. Good luck with everything.

The Sarah Saturday event is right around the corner. The weather is looking good and I have a feeling the fish will be hungry.

      I've gotten a lot of eyes this year, this being my best. Several in the 24" range and a LOT of eaters. A buddy and I took my mom out fishing and we got our limit of eater eyes in about an hour and a half. Good times!
    • Daniel Anderson
      Nice! That looks like a good time.

      Let us know how it goes. I have a cabin on Linwood just off Whiteface. Be nice to find good spots in the area, seeing as for whatever reason I never fish Linwood...

      What a morning jigging on one of the best, fastest bites of the summer for me Tuesday morning of this week.  I had a guide trip but they cancelled that morning and I almost stayed on shore. Since I had the boat in the water and everything was set I went out by myself to check out a couple of spots.  I didnt get very far    
    • jj56342
       Anyone have any good news or been up there lately waz up  over the Fourth of July did OK nothing to brag about a few walleyes  or any other lakes around the area not looking for hotspots or nothing trying to catch a few panties
    • jj56342
      OK thank you thinking about going up first week in September
    • proguide
      Low water continues to be the issue on the Red. Below the dams still remains sketchy so use boats at your own risk.  The fishing remains stable, similar to last week in that the fish are spread out but in the holes in the middle of the river.  Short 15-20 minute sits on spots keeping the bait fresh looking for the active catfish.
        Bait is still heavy to frogs and frozen suckers with goldeyes working some but it seems that frog and sucker are the best.  As water cools down I suspect fresh sucker will come into play as well.

      I used to have many fields but some guides came in and pay for the fields. I am down to 3 farms but they don't have any small grains this year. So I am going to take the early season off. As I know the geese will use some ponds to rest and I have access to them so I will wait until the regular season to pick off a few geese.

      get a guide for a day
