      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 .

Tips for Lake Marion in Lakeville

Recommended Posts

I am going to get out thre and try it this afternoon, but was wondering if anyone had any tips. I fished Mairon Tuesday night straight out from the boat launch and realized how shallow that part of the lake is! It was about 8 ft. or so all the way aroud where we were at. How is this area for tip-up fishing for Pike? Any other spots worth trying for Pike? Also, can a guy find any crappies in this lake? Any suggestions about where to find them? I moved right near Marion and will fish it quite a bit this year, but it would be nice to have some tips when just starting out. Thanks.

It's been years since I fished it but I always liked getting a little closer to the fishing pier than the boat lauch. But if you go out there during Christmas that whole flat out from the boat lauch will probably be full of tip-up fisherman, all the way across the lake and all the way up to the north.

The only crappies I caught through the ice were small, and were in the deeper water by one of the points on the east shore.

wildfan10- I used to fish marion alot years ago and i was able to find pike wherever i set my house. get yourself a map if you don't already have one. i know there's crappies in there somewhere, you'll have to look around for them. ask at GM in lakeville someone there might know where to start. also, there are walleyes to be had. good luck, maybe i'll run into you out there sometime, i think its time to check this lake out again since i live close by also.

there will probably be about 100 people out there. There is usually a "city" of people that forms right off of the public access. I would personally stray away from the crowds, you'll find pike pretty much everywhere.

Must be some new secret bait? grin.gif

I fish this lake in the summer during a family picnic at Antlers park. It’s a no brainier for pan fish. No big secrets out on this lake.

Finds breaks and structure this time of year, work in words to shallow (like 10-5 feet). Later season, work outwards 10-15 feet.

Like perch said, fishing pier area is a good area to start from. I have never been over to other side/ section and do not know what that side holds. I have seen walleyes caught in weeds 4-7 feet deep during summer time on south end by park (nothing big, but eaters). I figure I would try this area if I where to hit during ice time. cool.gif

Crappie minnow (small) and a flu-flu where hot items.

Good luck

      I resisted converting to braided lines. I liked my TrileneXL. Then, one day about four years ago I decided to spool up with fireline and at first I didn't think I could really feel much difference. Skeptical me, I always held on to that spool loaded with my trusty Trilene. One day I decided to put that mono back on and immediately could feel the difference. It felt like I was fishing with a rubber band. I went back to braided and haven't looked back.

      Last night a flock of geese buzzed the house and Finn went nuts! I think he wants to get out hunting as much as I do.

      Nice video Curt.  Looks like you are having way too much fun out there. Enjoy the time on the water.

      I will probably go out to my parents farm and set up in a pasture. The cattle have it mowed down pretty good. The geese seem tp pile in there pretty good. I won't hit it to hard, just get out a few times and hopefully get my son to get his first goose...

      I have really gone to line Gamma brand line. It is a copolymer. Soft like mono but abrasive resistant as well. I prefer it in #6 for game fish and #4 for panfish.... If I can't find it I fall back to trilene in XL.......
