      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 .

Aitkin Area Lakes Help

Recommended Posts

ESOXHUNTER123

I'm heading to a friends cabin this weekend near Aitkin. We are looking to get into some crappie action. Has anyone been on Gun lately? Are there any other lakes that we should consider? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

anyone have a good report for the ice thickness on Gun....heard reports that it was slushy, just wanted to make sure it was good enough for a full size pickup to drive on.

Thanks for the help everyone. We were crazy and went out on Saturday to Gun. -45 windchill! It made fishing in portables somewhat difficult. We fished close to the deepest part of the lake. The first hole we drilled we marked suspended fish and were on them all day. They were by no means active but we managed to get a nice meal.

You are talking about Hanson Lake. The lake has a lot of small fish in it but you will catch a lot.

Goggy7 Eyes! I think you are thinking of HANSON'S LAKE! You are right. Hanson's is a Great panfish lake. But it can be a devil to get in to if the water is low. You have to put your boat in about a 1/4 block away and go through a drainage ditch to get into the lake. Why they just don't put a decent boat landing in there is beyond me. But Hanson's does produce some nice crappies, perch and sunfish.

We went out on gun on friday and fished three different spots. The first we got some smaller crappies and a few decent sunnies we fished in 23 fow. We moved to another spot and did not mark one fish. The third spot 22 fow lots of fish and putting on the feed bag. Lost a few jigs too pike the three of us got our limits fairly quick. Fished a couple of smaller area lakes on saturday and sunday if You could stay warm out there the fish seemed to be active we got some nice fish over the last five days. Good luck all.

Hey Hotlips13... I will also be on Gun lake this weekend fishing. You sound like you're a very attractive lady and I'm wondering if you'd like to do some fishing together on Saturday?

Hopefully we can both catch a ton of fish!
