      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 .

Try the Trout Fourum. If you look through some old posts, I'm sure you'll find some helpful info.

It just seems like all the decent Metro trout waters are over fished. Courthouse Pond in Chanhassen apparently have 150 portables on it at the minute winter trout season started. Its nice to know you can get 150 houses on 10 acres. Someone else told me there were over 500 people. I was out there the day after opener and you couldnt go 10 feet with out find a group of holes.

My best recommendation for winter trout head for Grand Marais and check in at Buck's Hardware or the Beaver House.

Dragon Fish ll

Watched a fishing show on trout fishing this morning.these guys were catching 8 to 10 plus pounders like you would catch perch on your favorite perch pond. 10 pounders are a average with 20 plus possable. the fish were mostly browns with some steelhead. i just did a little research on that area and found out why. theres warmer water and some plant discharge in this harbor that keep lots of shad and other bait fish in there so these big trout just hang in there and eat all winter long. its the Milwaukee harbor on lake MI in WI. About the same distance as the boundry waters or Ely from the twin cities. IM SOLD plent of shore or pier fishing spots.ice fishing an boat

      I fished shakopee lake in onamia on monday it had ten inches of good ice. Lots of air bubbles but seemed solid. I would guess most lakes in the area have enough to at least walk on but u can never trust ice so be carfull bring spud bar and ice picks and a friend just in case

      Thanks for the shout out Moose.  I have plans to go out this weekend but to another lake.  I’ll ask if the other party wants to stick to those plans or head east instead.
    • Wanderer
      Yep, that’s what I’ve heard.  I’ve used loose powder quite a bit before.  My first ML was Hawken kit gun in 50 cal.  True black powder in an actual powder horn.  Patch and ball.   The only thing I didn’t like about ML season back then is I couldn’t wear the traditional clothes too!

      Lots of fresh ice out there. With the snow we have gotten the last few days you won’t be able to see the difference between the older and newer ice so don’t forget to check. There were open water spots on most lakes 2 days ago that are now covered. CHECK for your self.  Also lots of trash already on a lake I was on, slobs, throw it in your own car if you don’t mind looking at it.

      If he is going to fish them from a kayak I would suggest getting him a boga grip that way he can get it out of the water

      Thanks for arranging this MM.  Wish I could make it.  I'm sure it'll be a great time!

      I heard of a ranger/ice castle out from the Pelican access last weekend.  Any truth to that?  Some people have no fear.

      You will like the Blackhorn powder as long as you are used to using loose powder and not pellets. It burns much cleaner making reloads much easier. I clean my muzzleloader the same way as all my other guns now. Just remember that you don't have to use as many grains of powder with the 209. The max recommended is 120 grains. I shot 100 grains of pyrodex but dropped to 90 with the 209.
