      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 .

Just wondering if anyone has tried perch fishing lately on Eagle Lake. If so any size to them lately.

Was out there on Eagle Saturday from about 2:00-8:30. During the daylight hours, the perch provided our small party with a heckuva time. As I believe I saw mentioned in an earlier post (where we even got the idea to give it a shot in the first place), it was suggested that they were running around outside the weedline. Due to some confusion by one of the guys in our party on exactly how to read a Vex on AZ, we kept drilling holes off of one of the bars until he said we were in 7 ft of water, which actually turned out to be 13 ft. The perch were around there anyway, so we went with it. Unfortunately, I think the biggest one we saw might have been a whole 6 or 7 inches. I believe this fact was also mentioned in the previous post; it would take a lot of sorting to make a meal, but the action would be good. It was, as the little buggers were pretty darn aggressive, which was entertainment in and of itself. I know I caught one that was a whopping 3 inches, that absolutely hammered my rig, and somehow managed to cram the lure into his mouth. I had a blast, but then again, I love perch fishing.

Though the action for perch hasn't been as consistent on other lakes we have fished, we have been able to catch some larger ones on ice other than Eagle.

Long story short, move out of the deep holes and closer to shore, and I think you will find them.

Have fun. Let us know how you do.
