      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 .

Any Walleye?

afternoon fellow fishers. I am new member here and this website is sweet. I have just moved into the plymouth area and looking for some good walleye fishing. I have 2 friends from Pennsylvania coming to visit on Feb 8-9. They have never gone ice fishing before so I want to show them a good time. Any suggestions for getting into the walleye around the metro?

Welcome to FM Dude! You need to spend a lot of time on the water in the Metro Area to track down those eyes. Stay away from crowds, drill in tight break line areas, and you might have a shot. Have a white russian for me! What part of the metro are you looking at? For me Tonka has been the best bet so far.

Thanks. Been out on Prior Lake twice, tried both the lower and upper portion and absolutely nothing. We could see the fish down there with the Vexlar but very inactive. Never been on Tonka before. What are some good areas to try? Is the ice safe enough to drive on tonka? Prior had about 20" of ice where I was at. Will def bring out the cocktails that w/e

They do well on walleye around the islands and points. If you have a gps with a lakemaster chip to show breaks and depths would be good also. Yeah they have been driving on Tonka also. I thought you were the dude from the Big Lebowski hence the white russian comment.

Been sucking it up on the walters since the cold snap. Heard they went deep, but I don't like fishing for deep walters. The whole air bladder deal coming out of its throat irks me and the fish. Early ice weedlines were the ticket, but those have died off so I dunno. Crappies anyone - cripes did I just say that?

      I've gotten a lot of eyes this year, this being my best. Several in the 24" range and a LOT of eaters. A buddy and I took my mom out fishing and we got our limit of eater eyes in about an hour and a half. Good times!

      Nice! That looks like a good time.

      Let us know how it goes. I have a cabin on Linwood just off Whiteface. Be nice to find good spots in the area, seeing as for whatever reason I never fish Linwood...

      What a morning jigging on one of the best, fastest bites of the summer for me Tuesday morning of this week.  I had a guide trip but they cancelled that morning and I almost stayed on shore. Since I had the boat in the water and everything was set I went out by myself to check out a couple of spots.  I didnt get very far

      Low water continues to be the issue on the Red. Below the dams still remains sketchy so use boats at your own risk.  The fishing remains stable, similar to last week in that the fish are spread out but in the holes in the middle of the river.  Short 15-20 minute sits on spots keeping the bait fresh looking for the active catfish.
        Bait is still heavy to frogs and frozen suckers with goldeyes working some but it seems that frog and sucker are the best.  As water cools down I suspect fresh sucker will come into play as well.

      I used to have many fields but some guides came in and pay for the fields. I am down to 3 farms but they don't have any small grains this year. So I am going to take the early season off. As I know the geese will use some ponds to rest and I have access to them so I will wait until the regular season to pick off a few geese.

      get a guide for a day
