      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 .

Anyone heard when this lake is going to open up to the puplic. I heard the park opening is gonna get pushed back to 2009. It was suppose to be this summer. I hope the stock it with more than panfish and bass. We need a northen lake or some wallyes. Why not start with this lake. If you're wondering what lake this is. Its right next to 52 and 14 west.

According to the City of Rochester website, it's still slated for Fall 2008 for completion. They've got a lot of work to do if that's the case.

All I know is that it will be a nice addition to the other fishing options we have. I am looking forward to it.

I was talking to a buddy who lives out that way and he was pumped about having a fishing hole that was closer to home. He also mentioned that "they" had redesigned the lake last year. Instead of one gigantic lake "they" decided to break it up into smaller bodies of water. This redesigning of the lake is what has pushed back the completion date; according to my buddy.

I live in Kasson so having something a little closer to the homefront would be nice for me and my 4 yr old son to take advantage of. Can't wait to see it completed

I hadn't heard about the lakes being left seperate. The last I had heard was that they were going to open it up into one large lake. But that may have changed, I don't know for sure.

They split the lakes in two for clearer water. Someone hinted to me that we might have another trout lake. I don't know how people would feel about that.

I personally would rather see it stocked with other gamefish, like walleye and pike or somethin along those lines.

As far as I've heard this is still the plan.

I heard recently they will begin work on the bike trail this spring. It all depends on how much longer the lake area is mined, before the lake its self will open.

Hey Tipup101

No I haven't been out to Naylor Pond. I was meaning to trip out there this last pheasant season and scout it out but never got a chance too. I heard to that they have a decent amount of panfish out there, but I also think I heard that this last summer or fall that the DNR was planning on doing/or has done a drain down on that pond. Seem to recall that being in one their weekly email newsletters. Do a search on the DNR website and see if my memory is playing tricks on me. If the pond has been drained down then I seriously doubt that their would be a lot of action on Naylor...

R Dawg, thanks for the weblink...I knew I say a briefing of the project online, but thought I read it on the KTTC site.

      Sounds good! May an oversized deer with obscenely large antlers find its way to you!

      Well the weather was pretty crappy but the fish were biting...Had to sort through but kept some for dinner. Caught a variety today, eyes,jumbos,crappie and a few smallies... rigging on or next to rocks worked best for us.

      hummm, hadn't heard a thing?

      Good luck. Maybe we will see you Friday. I will let you know how things are looking by us as the weekend goes by.

      I still hope it's double!  I just went over the map with my brother and talked about our options.  We have enough places to go for sure.  It's always fun planning and talking about past hunts. I put out the question to the other two guys about staying in camp vs the house.  We'll see what they decide.  I hauled our "cabin" home from Ely today so we should have plenty of room if they wanna camp.

      Did a few off season projects waiting for Ice. - Underwater camera, Fish Finder, Wheel house mods and the latest converting a 2 cycle Jiffy Lite 90 to an ION battery auger. Got the auger off Craiglist for $10, Drill for $15. Second stage of gear box is a 5 to 1 reduction so got the auger blade to turn at about 250 RPM which I feel is an ideal speed. Gear reduction also doubled the torque of the motor drive. Planning to use the Dewalt 20V ION battery as I already have charger and now converting one of the 1.5 AH batteries to either 9 or 12 AH.  If anyone needs a mid 80's Jiffy Lite 90 motor and clutch PM me. Has great compression, never tried to start it.  Price somewhere between free and a gift. If you did a project this summer, would you care to share them? DJ ION Auger HB.mp4  << Click link for video

      You may want to consider #3 ; Rapala Jiggin Raps, or drop shoting. They both have been putting some nice size suspended slabs topside under some breezy conditions as of late. Fishing sure was downright epic the last week for all species. To bad it looks like "global warmering" is coming to an end for this year, was awesome while it lasted...... Those are some decent perch panman54. LOL!

      Pretty remote and flat back there. I haven't been on that exact shoreline but I bet you can pull a boat up there quite easily.
