      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 .

camp lake??

I was wondering if anybody has any information on camp lake just south of St. Cloud off of highway 10. Everytime I go up to the cabin I see people fishing it. I'm woundering if it's worth droping a line in this winter?

Well if you look at the DNR reports which is usually the first thing i do before trying a new lake it says its full of bullheads and thats all. But we have 10000+ lakes in minnesota so they might not be up to date. Tons of other areas lakes that are worth trying

I've wondered the same thing as well because I would always see people out there. I gave it a try a few times and learned that there are a lot of small pannies and crappies, with a few decent ones on good days. They can keep you busy so a kid may have fun with it but not a lot more than that. I've seen some smaller bass with the aqua vu. Rumor has it that at one time it was a walleye rearing pond, I have never seen a walleye caught or with the aqua vu. Everyone I talked to also said "they heard" of walleyes and were giving it a try. I dropped the camera by one of the perms out there last year and there were six piles of beer cans on the bottom, so I think some of the people are out there to catch a buzz and not so much fish. Not a lake for me, try it if you wish and maybe you'll be suprised but there are many more productive lakes around.

My brother lives on this lake. I haven't fished it much. The little I have fished caught a ton of little largemouth. There are also sunfish, crappies, pike, and bullheads in there with a few walleyes.

      No not yesterday. 2 weeks ago when we had that first cold spell I went out on Baxter, Blue and Long and checked the ice. They were locked up but only had 1-2" inches so didn't venture out too far. Baxter probably was walkable but had open water on the back end so figured I stay off. Last Sunday I went and checked them out after that warm rainy week we had and they had open water, so yesterday I skipped checking them and went farther north. But I did notice most lakes were locked up on the drive up there. Cant wait for the local lakes to get some decent ice!

      Wondering if big sandy is clear enough to spear fish when the ice comes on? Never done it before and would like to give it a try

      Bryan did you check any lakes around me?
    • Bryan P
      Had to scratch the ice fishing itch, so I drove up north to the Mille Lacs lake area and found a smaller lake with 4-5" of ice. Punch a few holes and found some crappies and sunnies. Nothing big but was fun time and a great way to start my ice seaso n! Bring on the ice!  Check out the video: https://youtu.be/BTTv_G07PB8

      Hey, I resemble that remark!!   Plus my wife only went fishing with me once the whole time that we have been married and she brought a book! I got her trained in right away. Sorry about your training problem!
