      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 .

Powers Lake

Does anyone do any good ice fishing on Powers Lake in Woodbury? I'm fairly new to the area and have been fishing the St. Croix pretty hard but a few people have told me to check out this lake. What does everyone fish for here?

I went there a few times last year by myself and tried what looked like a good spot from the DNR's map all the way across the lake from the access on the "point", but ended up catching what I catch everytime I go out there.......small perch and small crappies. I went there once this year and caught the same thing as last year, so I gave up. I think a lot of people use tip-ups and go for the pike on the north end of the lake and I think a lot of others bring their kids out because they can catch a lot if smaller fish.

Gills and some pike are in there or I should are the most sought after fish, other species that get caught there are crappies, walleye, and some grass carp....

Yeah that about sums it up. I got suckered into trying the lake several years ago after hearing people say it was a great lake. Maybe it was 5-10 years ago but not much to talk about anymore.

I'm taking my girlfriend out tomorrow. Only her second time ice fishing and sounds like this might be a good place to go even though its all small fish because its so close and I just want her to catch something. Just curious where I should set up. I looked at the DNR map, does everyone just set up right in the middle in the 40 foot hole or somewhere shallower. Should we use waxies or crappieminnows? I also looked at a DNR survey and it looks like the walleyes in the lake are pretty good size even though there might not be that many. Where would be a good place to set up for them before dark? Sorry for so many questions. Any help is appreciated just want to make sure my girlfriend isnt bored the whole time we are out there.

Red circle is were I got my hogs, I use tiny jigs with colored euros, you can see in my sunfish picture. couldn't hurt to throw a minnow down just incase. Blue Circles are potentially good spots in my opinion (or potentially the 41 ft hole). Make sure to take pictures and share your experiance.

Yeah shoot me an email and I will tell ya where I have been fishing. But its been really slow lately. The last few times I have been out I started in the same spot didn't do any good and then just ran around looking for a fish. I'll probably be out early tomorrow morning if you want to meet up with me out there. Just shoot me an email at jheuston@hotmail.com
