      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 .

There were 3 houses out there yesterday at about 4pm. We made some of the tracks as we drilled and walked out to check thickness.

Was there thurs eve. 4-5 inches of ice with slush on top of ice and beneth snow. Snow makes it tough pulling out gear. Fished for about 3 hours. Marked fish but only caught 4 crappies in the 5 inch size variety and 2 sunnies in the 4 inch class. NOT good at all. I was and am disapointed. frown.gif

Public access on the east side off 135th. There is parking for about 12 trucks or so. My neighbor plowed the road through there so you can get to the access.

Tough to say if the whole lake was good. I was there in the dark. crazy.gif I would assume the lake is safe but you know what they say when you assume. Just use caution where ever you decide to go. Like I posted earlier, there was about 5 inches of ice on thursday eve. The snow and slush made it difficult to get out there and the fish were non cooperative, and on the small side (all in the 4-6 inch class). If you really still want to give it a try, use the access on the east side of the lake. Can't miss it. Good luck. smirk.giftongue.gif

Fever

Had the most luck on char. gulp maggots and a aggressive jigging approach with a spring bobber set up. Caught a few on a sweedish pimple and a minnow head, but I think that so many of these fish are on the small side (4 - 6 inches)you have to use smaller approach. Waxies would probably work too, I just used the gulp because I had it. Sad to say it but I think the pressure the last couple winters has done this lake in. I'm trying new water on my next trip out. Thinking Ann, Howard, or Waverly... anybody have any pointers on where to try for Crappies on these lakes?
