      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 .

Tip ups for pike!! HELP

Recommended Posts

King_Fisher

Hi guys, just wondering where a person can go for some tip up action. I am going to be taking my nephew out (10 years old) and he has never caught a northern bigger than a pound. Would only keep 1 or 2 for pickling, otherwise it's all CPR from there. I live in the west metro so anywhere on this side would be perfect.

Hey King_Fisher, if you haven't already, check out the DNR Lakefinder. There are plenty of lakes in the west metro that will yield some pike action, especially if you're not choosy about size!

I suggest Little Long Lake, near mound. Good numbers, some big. Its a long skinny lake with a big weed flat on both ends, extremely deep everywhere else. Fish either end of the lake right outside the weedline, maybe 1 tipup on the weeds. I would lean towards the side opposite of the launch. Also, a little north would be Lake Martha and Charlette, these also have big numbers in them and you should get a flag. Good Luck.

Being that your from Plymouth I would hit up the weedlines of medicine or minnetonka. There are plenty of pickling sized pike in medicine, while at minnetonka you might get a 10+ pounder.

Thanks guys. I have been on medicine twice now and not had any luck. Just a bunch of perch on my dead stick and no flags. I know it's not my presentation either because I have done fine in past years. Maybe I'll give Long a try.

Hey kingfisher - I was out on the Seaton Channel (off of shoreline dr) this last weekend and pulled up a 33 inch 9.4lb northern. I was out there two years ago and brough in 32", 34" and 28" northern. There are some decent fish in there. We only had one flag last weekend in 4 hours but the panfish kept us busy. Have to be there early in the morning though. Brendt-Northern.jpg

Part of Lake Minnetonka. On Shoreline Drive near the town of Spring Park. Just south of Harrison's Bay. Check out the DNR Lake finder.

Cool thanks, it would be great to have catch some panies while were waiting for the flag.

Hey king Fisher.....you should also look into Maple Lake out by Buffalo. I have never ice fished it...but this summer we were out there for a bass league and I must have caught 20 nice Northerns in about a 6 hour span. All of them were 3-8 pounds. Just a thought....but I would bet a steak sandwich a flag would go up on a day fish at that lake.

Let me explain. I lost my normal winter hat, had to pull out the Bronco hat. (I am a Bronco fan). The sweatshirt gets worn every weekend that I fish. I put on a different one once this year and got shut out. Since then I have worn it and not gotten shut out. Why Wisconsin...Steve and Barry's for $7 that is why. Figured a little bit of fish guts would look good on it! grin.gif
