      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 .

Third Crow Wing and the rest of the chain

Does anyone fish Third Crow Wing in the winter or any of the other Crow Wing lakes in the chain? Are they fair accessible. It has been a long time, but a few years back I fishing 3rd Crow wing and picked up some walleyes and crappies, but I was with a buddy and we walked out from a relative's cabin. He won't be with me this time and I don't feel like trespassing I guess.

Any help with this lake or any of the others that are nearby??

Do they get fished alot??

Thanks

The acess on third is on the North end. I talked with a guy who fished it last weekend. He said there was lots of flooding on the ice. He did catch a few small Walleyes and a couple of Northerns in about an hour and a half. I haven't been off that acess is a long time. I don't know if it's good or bad.

They resurfaced the access on third this summer. It's an easy access for getting out, but you need to travel down the lake a way's to get to the fish. Right now you'd need a four-wheeler or snowmobile for travel and with the flooding that will be tough. Nearly all the Crow Wings have available access but the conditions aren't overly favorable right now.

One thing to remember about the lakes in the Crow wing chain is that they are just wide spots in the river... There is a fair amount of current going through them plus many of the lakes are spring fed too. What I am trying to say is BE CAREFUL.

There are a lot of lakes in the area that I would try first, then hit the Crow wings when the ice is better.

I would suggest contacting Jason Durham and hiring him for a day to show you around a couple lakes. He knows the area and the ice conditions (plus he's a pretty good guide too).

Be Safe.

Last I was up was 3-4 weeks ago. But there was a solid 16"+ on the third. I was pulling big crappies off the points and northerns a little shallower. Didnt try much for walleyes, as I couldn't pass on all those slabs. I didnt get to far to the east and north part of the lake, as there was a lot of slush and standing water on the lake at the time still; and with no wheeler or sled, it was long pull too.

I will be up this weekend. Its gonna be really cold though. My cabin is a couple hundred yards down from the south point, so i will probably be hanging out around there in a 2-man green ottertail portable if you make it over. good luck!

Haven't been out on Palmer but was out on Long and 4th Crow wing. On Long I found 22-24 inches and on 4th Crow Wing I would imagine you would need and extension by this weekend. I was out on Duck a month or so ago and there were people driving out so I would imagine you would be AOK.
