      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 .

If it is the bush lake in Bloomington I live about 3 mins away and have only caught about 6 good sized crappies in about 10 years. But if you want some fast northern action hit up the west end in about 5 fow with suckers out by the boat launch. If there were tons of people they were catching small sunfish and bass.

Good luck &tight lines

The boat launch is at the South West end but either end is good for Northern or Muskie. The crappies were in the thick weeds with the sunnies, and then again in about 14' to 18', if you drill a bunch of holes and then move around you can usually get a few good size crappies out of each hole. I'v been fishing that lake for quite a few years and have taken some big crappies out of their. I had a Muskie on that just wouldn't stop until it took all of my 55 lb dacron line off of my tipup and snap! he was on his own, it just never stopped! Back in "98" I saw a guy catch a 52" muskie thru the ice-photo and relesed it- man was that cool! Their is an elderly guy I think his name is Larry that is alway's on the lake that has a red truck and a clear portable ice house he is alway's fishing Northerns. If you see him I would talk to him, he is a realy nice guy and would be more than happy to help.

Go streight out from the cement boat landing head left down the middle of the lake and twards the point on the left 12'to18' fow just befor you get to the point. Their is a weed line that starts to thin out and I found alot of fish their during the day--good luck!-- if you have a camera you will see what I mean. I have been getting them in real shallow too in the thick weeds.

Am I going to be in with a ton of people out there tomorrow? Has it been getting fished like never before? I am hoping the cold weather keeps people at home. Thats why I love the extreme cold. The fish bite decently and everyone stays home.

I don't think it has been getting that much pressure, alot of the people you see are dog walkers or cross country skiers.

People are driving thru the swimming area and off of the boat axis only. Be careful of the springs on the North East side to the right of the beach, it has some signs their.

We drove all around the lake today. No issues with the ice. Its very thick. Doing a great job of hiding the fish. The beach area is fine for driving.
