      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 believe there are tiger muskies in eagle, maybe i'm mistaken. Evinrude, where were u when u got the ski? tip up i assume, big sucker? I live in maple grove and fish eagle alot open water, never tried it hard water. and shaggz was saying the 52" was caught, that was my friend himself. if i knew how to post pics i would. Might try throwin tip ups out all day, otherwise not worth to time for crappies

was out on sat. night, very cold and windy, almost lost my portable a couple of times, caught about 10 crappies, 2 keepers rest were pretty small aboutg 7-8 inchers, biggest was 11 inches. was in about 21 feet, wonder if you have more luck the deeper you get. looked like someone had lost their tarp to their portable out near the 30 foot hole... now it's just a wood skelaton.

40" ski on waxies, now that is odd! i know eyes or pike would hit that rig, but never thought a muskie would take it, guess he wanted a lil appetizer! nice catch none the less

yes i know they're out of season. How couldn't any fisherman not know after the tonka monster... I only fish skis or walleye open water, so I always like seein em. But if you were to go on eagle and throw some tip ups out, your chances are equal of gettin a ski or pike. my friend that lives on the lake got a 39" fishin for crappies, he got a 14.5" crappie out of eagle this winter... it's hard for me to believe that

i find that hard to believe also becuase i have fished that lake for around 5 years and my biggest is only a 11" crappie out there

I believe him thought, no reason to lie.. like moby said, every lake has big fish. people can't catch all of the biggens, im sure there are a 100 crappies 14+ in there, they jus feed on sources no where near anyone fishes. [PoorWordUsage], they could be sittin in pike lake and never seen a lure before

I was out there on Sunday afternoon. Was in about 27 fow. It started out slow but picked up nicely around 1. My buddy and I caught a total of 19 crappies. Most were small but had about 5-6 keepers. Let them all go though.

I'm a first time poster. I live by eagle lake but have never fished it. I read the thread. Any ballpark hints as to where and what time to setup for possible crappie action this Sat? Much appreciated.

I've only fished there a couple times this year, but try the SE side. Check a DNR map and find the bowl that's over 35 ft deep. If you have a fish finder/flasher, you'll want that. The fish are all suspended and could be anywhere from 8 - 24 ft in 32 FOW. It'll make it much easier to find them. I've caught them at 10am-noon and from 5:30-8pm, so it's not just a once a day bite. Good luck. Most are small, but if you get on a school, it can be entertaining.
