      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 .

CLEAR LAKE up by GLEN

Any reports on little Clear Lake? I've fished it in summer, but never winter. Thinking about a possible trip, but don't want the drive if it's not the place to be.

My parents have a cottage on Clear and I have fished it for years.

It is a dishpan lake in that there is very little structure. Try off the south side of the island or on the SOuth side of the point on the West side. It is mostly a panfish lake however it has lots and lots of little hammer handle pike. I did manage to hook a large one off the West side of the island at night during the open water season a couple of years ago. I let it go.

Clear does have a few walleyes but they are few and far between. Still and all if you move around you ought to hook into a few decent perch and crappies. The best place to fish in the day time is about halfway along the South Shore in about 18 fow. Clear has a max depth of about 26 feet and like I said has very little structure except around the island on the South side.

The North side of the island is about 5 feet so I would not recommend it.

You might also try off the rock bar on the North East side of the island where the island swings around and points toward the main shore near the farm. I have hit a few small walleyes icefishing there from time to time. Best bet though is to keep moving.

Buy your bait at the bait shop in Malmo NOT AT THE GLEN STORE! The store owner is more interested in selling gas and booze than he is in keeping a decent supply of bit.

Good Luck! Tight Lines!
