      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 .

Anybody know where the BIG pike hang out on this lake? To me it seems like a huge bowl.

Big Pike are indeed in this lake. If I were to start looking for trophy size Pike, I would begin looking at a lake map of the body of water you want to fish. Free lake maps at Minnesota DNR website. I will set my tip ups when fishing these toothy predators, you can cover more area this way, increasing your chance for that trophy fish. I look in bays, inside corners of main lake areas. I usually set up anywhere between 6’-15’ feet of water set halfway to two thirds down the water column. If you can find weeds this time of the year, fish the outside edge or inside pockets within. Use a larger sucker minnow (bigger the better) on a quick strike rig. I will trim the tail on the sucker, this helps to slow him down, otherwise it might trigger your flag. Like myself I love to target big pike. My best day on the ice was on a local lake where I released two fish with in 20 minutes, one was 42” and the other 44”. Good Luck and many Flags to you.

Had one go for my underwater camera today. Looked like a scene from "Jaws" on my little 3.5 inch monitor. Wished I'd had a recorder hooked up to it.
