      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 not able to make it. We had a sick little boy in the house yesterday and the wife stayed home this morning. The stomach flu -- ick.

We also worked on Pinewood Derby cars yesterday afternoon..

So how as the fishing? Who caught what?

Hitman...what's the word on Silver Lake..tried it once last year and wasted an afternoon out there. Any reason to try it again in your opinion?

Yes it is worth trying. I would head for the north west corner or the southwest corner.

It is a strange lake. i have had some success there but I have been skunked more often than not.

It is like a lot of little lakes -- when they are hitting it is awesome, but when the shut down it is over.

Stay away from the other people if you can. That should help.

The best day I ever had was on a very warm summer day in july. 90 degrees no wind. A buddy and I were watching some of the local "talent" on the beach and some of the dudes with no teeth that come from Fargo.

Why do those dudes have more Ink than teeth. And when do they bring their pit bulls to the beach where kids are?

Anyway, we caught at least 15 eyes that day and some had couple of huge crappies. Strange. They should not have been active, but they were.

Silver -- yeah it is worth it but it is all about timing.

Thanks for the response. I've heard good/bad about the lake. It's also not far from town..easy drive from Moorhead to spend a nice day on the lake.

Dogwatch, remember last year when we went there, wow, really bad. But it is refreshing to hear that there is in fact some fish in that lake. the Perch

      1st time ever I've seen zebra mussels in ottertail on west side   this SUCKS!!!!   had a red solo cup in the water... apparently they love RED.     at least 5 of them    it sucks

      From someone who grew up as a back reeling aficionado, I've learned to appreciate a quality drag on a reel.  It's the one thing I'll gladly pay for. Modern drag systems are so much better than they used to be.  Not taking advantage of them is leaving a lot of the value of a quality reel on the table.  Unused and wasted. So, is that the kind of opinion you were looking for?

      They are already established in OT.  Pulled docks at my sisters place with about 75% covered in zebes.  Wear shoes when your in the water.
    • Meterman
      I noticed this spring that the higher end Shimano Stradic and others have eliminated the ability to back reel (no reverse) which I believe is a huge mistake, I don't like it!    any others have comments?

      Been out chasing crappies again in the DL area..been a while...finding some nice ones in mouth of a river...pic of a couple

      Went up north grouse hunting it was fun. I must say having a dog makes it better.  This weekend is duck opener and I am jacked up for it. 
    • SkunkedAgain
      The public launch at The Landing on the west end stays open until the ice sets in, but they do pull the dock sometimes around the end of October / beginning of November.

      Just curious if people are finding fish moving into fall patterns yet or still finding them in more summer locations?  I've been finding good sized panfish in deeper water myself around more mid lake structure. Most of the lakes I've been on are still pretty green with algae and weeds. 
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Captain Acorn, I use Gamagatu  octopus hooks. Size 4 for crawlers and size 2 for minnows. Red, black, chartreuse, and pink , mostly red and black. I use orange and green glow soft beads at times. (Worked today!) Cliff
