      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 .

If you are talking about Crooked in Andover/Coon Rapids then yes, quite a bit.

As far as the fish go that are generally targeted here through the ice, It has a lot of bluegill, but you will most often be hard pressed to find much over 7", probably since that is the size too many people start sticking them in their bucket at. Crappies are in about the same boat as the sunnies, there are a number of crappies in the lake, however they are often times even smaller than the sunfsih, but I have had good days with crappies catching some up to 10". There are stocked walleyes in there, and I have done well on occasion on open water certain times of the year, depending on the year (probably cause of stocking cycles). I have never got much of any eyes through the ice but haven't targeted them. Some people I have talked to on the ice claim to be consistently, inconsistent with the walleye action, which is about as good as you can generally expect on a small metro "bass" kind of lake like this.

By the way the lake exploded this summer with eurasion milfoil, like I didn't know was even possible. The lake use to have really quite nice broadleaf cabbage throughout the lake mixed in with other stuff like coontail, after the curly leaf pondweed would die off in the middle/end of June. However, I was out there once when they opened the launch back up before I left for school, and it appeared that everything out to about 13' was absolutely loaded with eurasion milfoil. Not that I am saying it will hurt the fish populations, but standard seasonal patterns may change?
