      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 .

I would agree with put the 10-11 inch fish back in and even 12 or 13 inchers for that matter. I have been seeing more of the 13 - 15 inch fish lately. I do still see the smaller fish but I do see some larger fish too.

The bite for me has been horrible. My first few trips out were amazing. I was catching nice mixes of walleyes and crappies and I only kept a few walleyes and threw all the crappies back. But lately, wow has it been bad. I fished all over the 30ft hole from 20ft.-30 ft. with not much. I even took some kids out and wanted to give them some action so I was going to set tip ups out around the 7ft. hump and nab some pike but even that was a bust. I don't now why but there are no weeds in and around that hump. Usually there are and the pike are in there.

Time to try some other lakes I think.

What is everyone pursuing on the North end if the fishing is so lousy? There must've been almost 100 guys out tonight. If the walleye bite is on like has been rumored, I hope everyone is practicing selective harvest or we're gonna end up w/ more summers like last year filled w/ nothing but 9" eyes again.

I just came off the South side Sunday night, and sat in 20 ft. on the break well south of the 30 ft. hole. Lots of eyes down there at 5:30, but was 6:30 before I got a worthy bite. Finished at 8 with 2 eyes (13,15 and 15) and lost 3. One big'n pushin 20. Then the fish on bottom turned to crappies, but no size.

A guy can still get that glowing eye comming up his hole if he just fishes VERY LIGHT! I mean panfish jigs with small crappie minnows, or a small minnow head. Glow red made all the difference (of course). It sure isn't EASY, but if you are a lil hard core, finesse walleyes for all. Good luck. Will be back there on Friday or Sat.

I was one of the 100 people out on the north end last night. No walleyes to report but, all the small crappies you wanted. I didn't catch anything that I considered a keeper. They were fun to catch though for the first time out this year.

How about the 8 or so snowmobiles that went right through the middle of the group of fish houses? I wanted to throw my ice scoop at them. They came through just as I was packing up.

I went out tonight (1-1-08). I used the in-town access. When you look out on to the lake, there are three visable clumbs of houses; left, center, right. I chose the left. Got out and set up. My one year old ice auger that worked perfectly only a week ago would not start. Thankfully two guys were kind enough to not only let me borrow theirs, the actually drilled the holes. Good guys. Anyway, tried for eyes with glow jigs. One on a bobber for the fiance about 2-3' off the bottom. She had two bites, one looked pretty nice, but lost them before she got them up. I was jigging anywhere from on the bottom to about 7'. Had one REAL nice eye spit the hook at right at the top of the hole, hit the floor of the shack, then right down again. So the eyes did bight a little, but I think they were picky. Lots of little nibbles. That could have been crappies. The guys next to us were hitten em pretty good as we left about 7 pm, but they weren't huge by any means.

Yes...I just got back from buffalo tonight too (1/1/08). I went out of the South access on 12, and fished a spot that gave me some eyes on Sunday, as I got down in the water, about 5:30 (there, the bite seemed to start later), I got one lil 12" eye, and that was it for the eyes. My buddy had a shiner on glow hook, keeping it dancing... not a bite. Well, as we were reading fish the entire time, I had finaly got a crappie around 6. So switched to the wax worms at about 6. Crappies there on out. Had my limit of nice size, 10-11 inchers by 8 (about 17 crappies in all landed) and a few lost to poor hooking by the lacadaisical me, and We just keept reading 'em so we kept catching 'em. They sure did seem to be more aggressive tonight than the last few nights. Strange with it being below zero out there. "Maybe the pressure stabalized" I said. Who knows, but it was enough to have a blast, and they were not too finiky either. Hard hits on bigger jigs, even a few crappies on the RED FROSTEE w/Minnow head. Good time. I see how they're biting around the lake, now I am just wondering if there are any areas that are holding bigger size. Don't expect anyone on here to reveal that info though, that might open a flood gate. I know how that is. Good luck to all, my new year started off great!

There are trucks all over the lake. Second hand information is telling me most of the lake is at 12" and some spots having as much as 14 or 15. Lots of people out there. Those who are getting away from the crowds are doing better.
