      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 was there on Saturday and it was a city. Fishing was tough. A few crappies but as mentioned, small. Talked to a few people who did alright with sunnies.

I grew up fishing this lake, and my wife's family is in the area, (Day), so after Christmas celebrations on the 29th we (myself and some of her family) ventured out at 7:30 pm. Many fish housed out there, and quite a few vehicles. I caught 6 small crappies, very small crappies. I was the only one useing a vexilar, and the jiggle stick and spring bobber with euro larve were the ticket. Everyone else was skunked.

Good luck.

I haven't fished there for 2 years now, and when I was last out there, we did okay on gills, and had a few crappies in the bag too, but they were all small to medium average, maybe 6.5 and 9 respectively. Was able to watch a pike about 3 lbs come in and nail a jig on the camera though, that was pretty cool.

I was just out the weekend before Chirstmas and a budy and me did really well on the crappies. 10-11 inch average. At that time the ice was really crappy. Lots of slush,4inches I'd say. I am sure by now it is nice.

We were fishing in about 14 ft. We were left of the landing and out about 50-75 yrds from the creek that comes in.

there aren't many in the summer for the fact all the fish are trying to regroup from the winter slamming!! LOL The thing to watch in the summer is the landing is just a dirt road that runs into the lake and the sand can suck a wheel or 2 in!! Tuff to pull out a boat with burried tires!! HAHA

I heard Lory lake is safe and crappies and sunfish are hitting pretty good on wax worms. The talk about his lake being a sleeper makes me laugh. A few years ago maybe. More like 20yrs ago when I had to bike there. Now I think it is over fished again. No matter, I'll stay off the lake for a few years. I have heard alot of negative things about this forum. To many stuck-up people. Noses in the air. Not that I have been in here much, from what I have seen here, I am glad that I have not. And will not be again.. LATER!!

really how hard is this lake to fish? The thing that bothers me is we have very few lakes in Princeton/Cambridge area and dont need alot of people from the cities coming up and slamin them. I good example was the post about Quamba(mud) last year. When I moved up here 6 years ago Lory Lake was kinda of a sleeper but not any more. One last thing, the guy who caught the 10-11 inch crappies where probably more like 7-8 inches.

quamba and these little lakes basically go through cycles of getting hit hard and then people stay away from them for a few years and then it happens all over again.....people like to fish and like to tell people about it and these little lakes take the beating!! I just try to be the guy to continue checking these lakes in the slow time and try to be the first one out when they begin to produce again!!

And, there you go again.

And, BTW. It ain't just people from the cities that have creamed these lakes (or blabbed about them).

Both of you guys ought to do an edit before the lake sits here too long again.
