      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 .

ANN Lake Chanhassen

I drove over there yesterday to check it out, and there was only 2 houses out there on the lake.

Is this lake just not that popular, or the lake just not produce fish like other lakes around here?

THe pike in this lake are plentiful and huge. Unfortunately the pannies are harder to come by and aren't that big. The DNR"s survey on their website doesn't offer much hope to anglers unless you're after pike.

According to the latest DNR report, 48% of all bluegills sampled were over 7 inches. Thats pretty good in my book. I saw some pretty respectable 'gills while swimming at the beach this summer too. I think its worth a shot. My opinion is that the restrictive slot on pike keep people off the ice on that lake....

Powerstrokes right about the pike, I've taken a few 30" fish out of Ann alound with some nice Largemouth Bass! As for the pan fish I caught a few nice crappie and a lot of 7-10" sunfish on hard water! I would give it a shot try the hole in the North West corner... Good Luck

Powerstroke

The DNR survey does say that 48% of sunnies were over 7", but they didn't catch any that hit 8".....Of course there are gonna be some in there, but it also had very low catch rates. They were in the average, but it was the low end. Same with crappies. I think they only netted like 15 crappies in the whole survey.

I've fished there before and done well on pike. The access is great and it stays plowed as a city park. Its just not a great all-around lake.

      A return client for a couple years brought fish grips with him... After watching him mangle a couple fish I asked him not to bring them anymore. Big fish need more care when landing in my experience. I hand land most muskies. This helps with not bringing a green (not ready) fish into the boat to hurt itself and the boat. With musky fishing growing in popularity I'm noticing a lot more fish with net scars from green fish. For a young musky angler learn correct technique early. The scars after a 4 fish day are a badge of honor. One of the best gifts I've received for my musky gear is a good pair of wire cutters. I use them to cut hooks in an emergency or out of a poorly hooked fish. Or if you can find it...a jar of musky slime cologne, my wife loves it. Ha! Good luck

      I fished shakopee lake in onamia on monday it had ten inches of good ice. Lots of air bubbles but seemed solid. I would guess most lakes in the area have enough to at least walk on but u can never trust ice so be carfull bring spud bar and ice picks and a friend just in case

      Thanks for the shout out Moose.  I have plans to go out this weekend but to another lake.  I’ll ask if the other party wants to stick to those plans or head east instead.
    • Wanderer
      Yep, that’s what I’ve heard.  I’ve used loose powder quite a bit before.  My first ML was Hawken kit gun in 50 cal.  True black powder in an actual powder horn.  Patch and ball.   The only thing I didn’t like about ML season back then is I couldn’t wear the traditional clothes too!
