      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 .

My tip would be go someplace else. \:\)

I've tried this lake a number of times on the ice over the past couple of years, including twice in the past two weeks, with one 8" walleye to show for it (& lots of small pannies & suicidal bullheads). Must be something I don't get - there's plenty of houses out there, & I've had good luck in the summer. Just not my lake on hard-water, I guess.

I havent heard anyone getting much out there after the first few weeks of the season. I used to fish Marion all winter but the past 5 or 6 years everyone seems to end up getting nothing but tiny sunnies after the first few weeks of ice season. Can you say too much pressure.

If i get there at all this year I will avoid the masses of houses because they will all tell you they arent getting anything but tiny sunnies.

When you heading out there Wednesday? Maybe I'll take you to a spot that used to hold a few eye's and crappies. Its really the only place on the lake I'll even consider.

my friend has a perm out there and early in the season we would catch about 15 crappies a night but that was when no other perms were out on the point now that the ice is thicker people ahve movied over there nad the pressure ahs slowed them down, havent picked up any eyes over 10 though they all seem to be consistantly small

Not only is the pressure amazing, the people are, forgive me, ruder than any lake I've been to on the metro. On both trips I have set up in the middle of nowhere, trying to escape the crowds, with no one within 100 yards (at least) of my portable. Both times some ingrate has driven up & parked within 20 feet of my tip-up (first night) or portable (second night). The second guy stomped, scraped snow, slammed doors, dropped equipment, & did everything but drop a grenade in the water between 5 - 5:30.

Of course, last year there was the guy who gave me a Newcastle. So perhaps I generalize. He was a good guy. \:\)

That's to bad their is alot of other choices in the land of ten thousand lakes, like Quetico says-so many lakes so little time- I would probably try a different one, less hassel!...WM

My problem with Marion has always been the snowmobiles. I cant count the number of times my portable has been sprayed by snow coming of them.

Between the crazy people, poor fishing and better lakes near by I stopped fishing it years ago. But I will always have the one spot on there I would consider fishing if all else fails.

Hey Quetico, looks like we're neighbors from your location. I gather from your handle you like canoe country? Don't want to hijack this important thread but wander up to the canoe forum if you haven't already.

Borg- if you want I can show you a few of my old haunts. We can take an evening next week and try a few of them. My buddies and I fished the lake a fair amount in jr high and in high school the size dropped off while the pressure increased. I havent fished it since I started college years ago.

Let me know a night and we'll meet at Antlers park landing.

      Got some grouse and saw some nice coveys. The biggest was 6 birds but found couple groups of 5. That is always fun.

      we mainly jigged fatheads in front of their mouths. 2 weeks ago also and tried a few different times over 3 days this trip. water is still crazy low so I don't think many boats will be using access. Also tried a couple different plastics and some gulp. Probably ready to go crazy up there soon.  Last year at this time it was really good. Might get there once more before ice time but not sure.

      Been thinking about breaking out the Jiggin Raps, might have to give that a shot. It's been too crowded out there this weekend with MEA going on.

      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.
