      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 .

Yearly Attempt at a FM Metro Get-Together!

Recommended Posts

Hey fellow Metro Ice-Fisherman!

I've had a few requests now to put together a Metro FM Get-Together. I'm a pretty busy little dude come winter, spending most of my time outside the metro, but meeting a number of folks who fish locally is always fun too!

A Metro Get-Together will more than likely happen on a Saturday sometime this winter. The lake is still yet to be determined and is open to popular opinion!

As with all FM Get-Togethers, the premise is "fun", "fellowship", "fishing" , and just hanging out and having a good time. Anglers of all skill levels are welcome!

We obviously have some great lakes in the metro to choose from so throw out your votes wisely! Will it be Tonka? Medicine? White Bear? Forest? Calhoun? Nokomis? Prior? or???? Outer metro lakes are options as well such as Sarah or further north to Rush.

I've got a couple bait shops in mind that would more than likely be willing to "sponsor" the event but details would obviously have to be worked out!

This is a topic to way your opinion and interest if you are interested and lets get the ball rolling, eh? grin.gif

I would second Prior Lake, since I could probably make that one.

I would definitely be willing to go to this depending on location. My vote is for Tonka though but I would not object to Prior either. grin.gif

I'll be there. I second prior or Tonka. Also, Bald Eagle might be an idea as well as FL.

I'd show to Prior or Tonka, but others wouldn't be bad either. Isn't Medicine also a likely spot from years past? We could even go as soon as Sat the 22nd (before Christmas) if it worked out on short notice.

I would love to get out somewhere and meet up with some members from FM.

I've never fished Tonka or Prior so my vote would be for one of them.

I'll be there. FM gatherings in the past have been great, especially if we choose a day when there isn't a -20 windchill (anyone else remember that day on White Bear?).

I like the idea of Prior or Tonka. I've never fished either so would be nice to try it out with people that have fished it before. If we can do it between the 18th and early Jan I can bring my Dad with since my folks will be in town for Christmas.

Prior's a great lake to try. I was out there quite a few times last year and would almost always find the crappies. Sandmannd, shoot me an e-mail and I'll tell you where to go.

I'm game for most lakes- I'd just need to know far enough in advance to make the needed arrangements.

Prior or Tonka are good options as well as any other mentioned.

      The public launch at The Landing on the west end stays open until the ice sets in, but they do pull the dock sometimes around the end of October / beginning of November.

      Just curious if people are finding fish moving into fall patterns yet or still finding them in more summer locations?  I've been finding good sized panfish in deeper water myself around more mid lake structure. Most of the lakes I've been on are still pretty green with algae and weeds.

      Captain Acorn, I use Gamagatu  octopus hooks. Size 4 for crawlers and size 2 for minnows. Red, black, chartreuse, and pink , mostly red and black. I use orange and green glow soft beads at times. (Worked today!) Cliff

      This weekend near grand marais on thursday and Friday the no see ems were out. A few skeets but once it cooled down the no see ems were gone. Fished a lake that known for horrible bugs and it was not bad.

      That's correct.  For now.
    • FishinCT
      We did well today from 1-4pm on an underwater point. Finally found some fish in a semi-sheltered area. Last few days have been tough to control the small light boat with all the wind. Most caught on pink jigs in 21-30ft.  Cliff I did try the circle hook lindy today with the big minnow and nailed the first bite I had. Next 2 bites grabbed it hard but dropped it. Work in progress!
