      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 .

Say guys looking for anyone fishing on Lake Alex Fish trap or Shaminau. How are they doing this weekend and what they catching. I was out Friday and we caught two limits of nice Crappies in less than 2 hours. Is anything else going or is it slowing down for the cold snap?

Just went to Alex tonight from 400 to 830, marked fish all night but only caught about 6 crappies. Nothing real big, had plenty of competition though! Lake was pretty full.

Was on Alex last night as well, lots of houses on the west end. Fished from 3:00 to 7:00. Caught a bunch of dink sunnies and a limit of crappies, but I was hungry. Normally those fish would go back in the water. Crapps were smaller than I had heard, the bigger ones must have been weeded out already...

Was out on Alex all weekend, and the bite was pretty slow for me. Mainly pesky little perch, and nothing worth keeping. I've never seen so many houses on that lake before either. I can't imagine there's a lot of fish left in there!

Way to much pressure at Alex......went to Fish Trap last week....its like fishing in Canada.......nobody's out here, its kind of nice, you go drill holes where fish should be...huuuh...they they are! Been back twice more and they're biting. Limited on 12" to 13 1/2" crappies the first time and the next 2 times walleye limits (15"to 24") gotta love those frostie spoons!

Alex looks like "Grumpy Old Men" out there! There are houses on top of houses pretty much ALL over that lake. I'm thinking about buying a corn dog cart from the State Fair, quitting my job, and setting up shop in the west bay. I'd be rich!

The west end bite is way slow now and mostly 9 10 inch crappies, but if you go out further in the lake thats where the nice 13inchers are now!!!! Go drill some holes and have fun! Ice is good all over. Myself and my buds have been driving heavy trucks and diesels all across the lake for close to 3 weeks now. I fish out there almost everyday.

Would anyone be so kind as to give me some idea where to be fishing on Fishtrap for walleyes? My I am new to fishing the lake, as my parents have recently purchased a cabin on the lake. My dad and I were thinking about trying some fishing in the coming weekend and would like any info that can give us some chance of catching some walleyes, or crappie. The way it looks in past yeard that houses seem to set up just outside the bay from the public access right off old hwy 10. Any info on bait, location, presentation, time would be great. Any info in general about fishing this lake would be greatly appreciated.
