      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 .

There was a lot of slush on fish in a lot of areas before our big snow fall and now with all the snow it may make more. Snowmobile is the best way to travel now. Wheelers will get you to some spots but a sled would be better.

Walking a house out could be a lot of work now depending on where you want to go.

Frank and JR, and I went on our sleds for dinner and fish was all slush all over. It will take awhile for me to even try after tonight. Slush every where confused.gif. If you stay on the trails you should be ok but if you go off you are in for a work out. four wheelers are not recommended Sleds only.

If you can get on some old tracks and old fishing areas that slushed up and froze after out first big snow you might be OK.

Accessing from Hi Banks is your best bet, from there get onto the sled tracks that travel from the flowage to the Eagles Nest, then branch off to your fishing spots.

At any rate you'll get into slush at some point.

Plenty of ice on Fish lake its just that the top layer isn't thick enough to hold a person up. I walked off a snowmobile path out of the public landing and fell into about 6 inches of water! Plenty of snowmobiles going over it and some 4 wheelers just plowing through it. Hopefully it will get cold enough to freeze all of it.

Fish Lake still has a lot of slush all over the place. Narrows is ok and stay on snowmobile trail or wheeler trails or you will surely be stuck in a wheeler. A snowmobile should be ok.

More snow talk now so it wont help any. Lets hope the weather guessers are wrong again and we get some below O weather.

Just wanted to give an update. Last Sunday I got out to Fish Lake at around 700am...it was pretty slow for most of the day, and then it happened. I finally got to really see how my new Marcum worked because it was flashing like crazy! It was a feeding frenzy...I caught my limit of crappies in the early evening. The lake was slushy in some places, but as long as you traveled on the tracks it wasn't that bad...worth the work after that night. Crappie minnows and orange color was the bait of lure of choice in about 10 FOW!! I'll be out again this weekend, it was a blast on a nice sunny day.

Hey guys I was just informed by my roomate that there was a thread about fish lake. I have been out there quite a bit recently. I was actually out tonight and took home 9 crappies. I have been fishing by the dam using glow jigs with crappie minnows with good outcomes. There have been a lot of full size vehicles driving out in this area. I only usually get out in the afternoon and just pound them between 4-545. If any of you see a big black frabil xl house out there don't be afraid to stop by and say hi, the name is Joel.

Thanks Joel for the response...we may go out to Fish tomorrow from 230-700. It's a toss up, we may go to Grand? We'll give an update regardless.

The Dam is located at the end of the black top on the Fish lake dam road. It is the public access to the lake. Look for the brown DNR Public Access signs. Do you know where the Fish lake dam road is located?

      I just purchased the Humminbird Autochart Pro to use wth my Humminbird 999. After going through the 'installation guide' and the 'get started guide' that's included in the Autochart PC program, I can't find what I need to do to get this on my model Humminbird. Anyone have experience? Thanks, Paul

      Did well this morning on big bay with gold spinners. 24-26 feet off the edge of a reef. Decided since they were biting we'd try the west end to see if we could catch some big fish. Put up a big zero out there. Guess they behave a bit different from end to end.  On a small reef out west had a guy pull up on us, throw a marker right on the fish and camp out right there. Kind of tough to fish spinners when someone does that. What is the etiquette on this lake when someone does that? Just fish where you want even if you run right up on them or in between them and the marker? I see the thousand dollar  depthfinder in the back of the boat, just mark a waypoint and keep the marker in the boat man. Really grinds my gears. Whoops...sorry for the rant   Never had that happen on the east end though

      Coming up next weekend to pull up the docks for the last time. Yup, my brother-in-laws folks sold their place on Frazer Bay. They owned the beautiful place just west of the public boat landing.They are in their 80's and are going to stay put at their place on Arizona. Been coming up for 20 years and now I won't have a free place to vacation at. Going to have to do some surfing for rentals I guess. Anyways, how has the walleye fishing been? Guess the weather will be quite a bit cooler next week.  Thanks for all the help over the years!
