      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 .

Ok. I need some help getting out on Clearwater.

1)- Are people driving out yet? How much ice?

2)- Can people drive out of the public access or is BJ's the only way?

3)- Where is BJ's? Does it cost to access the lake from there?

Thanks for any answers.

I don,t know about black hole, there is 12-16 inches on main lake. Just returned about half hour ago. Fishing was slow, fished off the 60fow in front of bj's.. Buddy caught a walleye in 58fow about 15inches, I caught 2 14inchers in 34fow. was expecting to go to a gps cord. from previous years, too many people out and I choose to fish more remotely from the crowds. Not a bad spot that we chose, just could not locate any type of shelf off this extremely sharp break, I like a staging shelf on a steep break. I guess should of expected the prime spots to be conjested on saturday. next weekend back to milacs, than I can fish a prime spot with out the crowd thank you lakemaster pro maps a dream come true!!!!

work excellent! I have the lowrance expedition color, the chip is a collection of 730 mn. lake maps that have been enhanced with gps mapping technology, also has 20 pro-level lakes that are mapped in 1 foot increments, the milacs is a dream. you are an icon on the color screen, so when you are on the lake you are looking at yourself moving along the contour of the lake be it a rock pile, sand bar, mud flat, shoreline break, ect. You know your exact location on that structure depth and all. no more reading a cord.off the map than leg working your way around trying to grasp exactly where the break is or a shelf or saddle. You can easily find the spot on the spot all the details so fun and a huge time saver, and confidince builder on that tiny pond.

mrklean, $400 well worth it. You also can get topo. maps in 1 foot increments for hunting. This set-up will give you all the tools to locate structure like the pros.

Bj's does charge for access at there landing- I am not sure if anybody is using the the public landings. To get to Bjs from Annandale- HWY 55 west to Nevens AVE (about 1 mile out of town) Head north and you will drive right by it. (about 2-3 miles north of HWY 55)

BJ's fee is $4 per time or $40 for the season. There is full size trucks driving all over most of the lake. There are roads plowed going all the way to the narrows. I was on the other side of the island sat. 16 in of ice

I have the Lowrance Ifinder Pro with Lake Master chip. The GPS was $200 and the chip was $100. I had to buy the Lake of the Woods chip for another $100. I wish I would have bought the H2O for the water resistance but I love the GPS. The bigger lakes with the 1ft incroments usually are right on the money. The smaller lakes you get a real good idea but still have to dril and check depths to find exactly were you want to be.

      I resisted converting to braided lines. I liked my TrileneXL. Then, one day about four years ago I decided to spool up with fireline and at first I didn't think I could really feel much difference. Skeptical me, I always held on to that spool loaded with my trusty Trilene. One day I decided to put that mono back on and immediately could feel the difference. It felt like I was fishing with a rubber band. I went back to braided and haven't looked back.

      Last night a flock of geese buzzed the house and Finn went nuts! I think he wants to get out hunting as much as I do.

      Nice video Curt.  Looks like you are having way too much fun out there. Enjoy the time on the water.

      I will probably go out to my parents farm and set up in a pasture. The cattle have it mowed down pretty good. The geese seem tp pile in there pretty good. I won't hit it to hard, just get out a few times and hopefully get my son to get his first goose...

      I have really gone to line Gamma brand line. It is a copolymer. Soft like mono but abrasive resistant as well. I prefer it in #6 for game fish and #4 for panfish.... If I can't find it I fall back to trilene in XL.......
