      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 .

i don't get home that often, but when i do i fish fountain and the channel regardless of season. just wondering, but does anyone ice fish pickerel anymore? i don't drive by like i used to. i caught a ton of fish including some huge crappies and perch in the little channel that abuts the road, but that was quite a few years ago now. it used to be good for perch. hopefully the lake still holds fish. im hoping it didnt die off like eberhardt. my aunt lives on eberhardt lake and unfortunately it froze out nearly 20 years ago. it used to be a guaranteed crappie limit.

If it's hear say, I would think twice about posting information like that here. Although it happens, we'd like to stay away from that whenever possible. Thank you.

??? Even if it's just "hear say" I don't really see anything wrong with saying so. I actually welcomed the info. But that does make it interesting as to reason why? Any info be it truth or not is helpful in some way at determining what's going on with such? As long as the intent was to inform and not purposely mislead I see no faulter in such posting.

But then again we all know the best way to find out is to ask the locals there or just call the DNR directly. That is if one really wanted to find out for themselves. This should be the answer to this thread.

This does not need to be a "rumor mill". We can all help with this being that there is plenty of that type of thing going on already without the help of the Internet.

I agree with you & understand. But how do you know if it's "rumor mill" or not? You dont. Give the benefit of the doubt. I think we are all smart enough to find out if we really wanted to know for sure. Yes such rumors & information should never be taken seriously unless it's a fact. I think that is common sense...

You more confident than most. I err on the side of caution. It doesn't take long for things to "twist".

Really? I didn't think my comments was directed at me being confident. I thought it was cautious just like yours. It's like someone telling you to take a shortcut on your road trip. you would take note, but actually check it throughly before taking the short cut to see if it's there. Common sense to me.

I think we all understand & agree. There is not reason to doubt or accept such info if oneself don't know foresure. So there is no reason to say it will embellish or twist. So just because we don't know for sure doesn't mean we can't hear about it. Maybe some locals could chime in on this thread provide us with some light on whats really going on at Pickeral.

Leaving the "hearsay" out if possible is a good idea like Otter said because things do get blown out of proportions. Im just saying not all rumors are said with a bad intent. Nuff said.

i hope it goes back to the way it once was. we pulled some beautiful perch out of the lake and a lot of nice crappies out of the channel.

Sorry to get any undies in a twist. It just was what I heard but didnt want to say it as a for sure fact. Just wanted to say so since there was a chance of it being done. I do think there is more hear say on here than we would like to accept, but when one person says so they get chewed on about it? guess it is my bad for bringing it to light of what could have been done. I did not see any harm in it.. just putting possiable information out.

Anyways I have done well in years past out by the island with nice sized perch and a few crappies in the mix. There is a old road that leads out to the island from the south shore that can be good if you can find it. it has been flooded over for sometime now. if you can find it, its about the best structure you will find out there. it has a little drop on each side and fish stack up on it off and on. Good luck if you do try it!

I really dont want to see that housing development and golf coarse being built next to the lake, i would like to have at least one lake without so much built up around the lake, someday we wont have a lake without housing developments on it, kind of sad! i do hope they get the electric carp barrier put in this year also, but it seems to me the watershed comm, is moving a little slow on this.I had HEARD that areators will be put in the lake also but do not know when.

With the housing going up, I feel bad for the people that waterfowl hunt out there. I have a feeling it will mess it up. although there are many other marshes to hunt. Although maybe there will be a nice landing put in, instead of the joke thats in there!

Hey Marbles, do you know how many years that old road has been flooded over? I really think it would have been awsome to live on the island out there! Even be nice to get ahold of the land and build a little cabin out there. Looks as if the old house out there has sat empty for a good 30 to 40 years if not longer!

I know how it goes. I am a Mod on a couple different reptile forums. Although there are more tactful ways on expressing your opinion on subjects. Need to watch your wording on post or people get the wrong idea! On here its mostly fishing information that gets passed around, where I am a mod it may cost an animal their life if I post wrong or "jump" someone. Just watch your wording so it dont look like your chewing on them..But there is no hurt feelings..Just the internet.

well i know back in the 40, or 50,s that some kids were stuck out there during the armisist day blizzard,{spelling?} the road would come and go with the waterlevels , many years ago when i was a kid i could walk out there without getting my knees wet.But i think if the dnr steps in and would do somethings it could be a really good fishin lake.I know Bonnerups family{funeral home} used to own one of the cabins out there.they used to grow crops on the island as well.

      1st time ever I've seen zebra mussels in ottertail on west side   this SUCKS!!!!   had a red solo cup in the water... apparently they love RED.     at least 5 of them    it sucks

      From someone who grew up as a back reeling aficionado, I've learned to appreciate a quality drag on a reel.  It's the one thing I'll gladly pay for. Modern drag systems are so much better than they used to be.  Not taking advantage of them is leaving a lot of the value of a quality reel on the table.  Unused and wasted. So, is that the kind of opinion you were looking for?

      I noticed this spring that the higher end Shimano Stradic and others have eliminated the ability to back reel (no reverse) which I believe is a huge mistake, I don't like it!    any others have comments?

      The public launch at The Landing on the west end stays open until the ice sets in, but they do pull the dock sometimes around the end of October / beginning of November.

      Just curious if people are finding fish moving into fall patterns yet or still finding them in more summer locations?  I've been finding good sized panfish in deeper water myself around more mid lake structure. Most of the lakes I've been on are still pretty green with algae and weeds.
