      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 am going to take my kids out fishing for some panfish and I usually dont fish for them myself so does anybody know which lake might be better for some action, either Chisago, South center, or ceterville? I usually only fish for eyes and Pike but this has been my worst year in a long time and the kids are tired of being skunked.

thanks

All those lakes you named would be good. I was on peltier yesterday and marked lot's of fish, but they weren't very active. Good mix of crappies, sunnies, and perch though. Not alot of people on the ice either, where as centerville was a ZOO! So if your looking to avoid crowds, peltier would be a better choice. South lindstrom is a good place too, easy accessibility as well. And you might even get yourself a pike on a tip up.

I was one of those people at the centerville zoo yesterday. Seems like everybody i was by was very nice though which helps. I left the lake at 4 and thought about fishing peltier for an hour or two, never been out there what can a guy expect on an average day? Matt, Granted they'll probably only be catching sunnies and the ocasional crappie i would reccomend heading out to centerville, anywhere straight out from waterworks. look for 15-18 fow. Set your kids up with a light colored jig (yellow/green) and put them 6inches to 1.5 feet off the bottom and bait it with a waxie or two. They should have a blast catching them sunnies. Out of the lakes you mentioned this will most likely be the easiest to get set up on and plus its closer to hugo. Good Luck and let us know how it goes.

Matt, if you want to have a good time and get on some fish, take your kids to the FM Kids Get-together . I think it's up on North Center and Tom (who's putting it together) is doing a great job. I wanted to go but due to wheather got post poned and I'm going to red. It's going to be a great time and last time I was there the fish were biting good.

We have decided to switch the location of the get together after a very successful outing today, and I will be posting a map up on the link that sandmannd put up. It is gonna be awesome, we really did get a lot of panfish today even with the crappie \:\) weather conditions.

Matt, I'd say Centerville also. Was there Fri and Sat. Straight out from Waterworks west of the big group. 18 ft of water, loads of crappies 2 ft off the bottom and a few sunnies on the bottom. Minnows and/or larve with any glow jig. Bite stared around 4:15 than quit at 7:00 pm. Crappies runing up to 11". Took home enough 10"ers for supper. Good Luck !

      Coming up next weekend to pull up the docks for the last time. Yup, my brother-in-laws folks sold their place on Frazer Bay. They owned the beautiful place just west of the public boat landing.They are in their 80's and are going to stay put at their place on Arizona. Been coming up for 20 years and now I won't have a free place to vacation at. Going to have to do some surfing for rentals I guess. Anyways, how has the walleye fishing been? Guess the weather will be quite a bit cooler next week.  Thanks for all the help over the years!

      Not at all a typical fall this year; more like a July lately. When the weather cools down next week fish will again start to set up in their cold weather locations. The last two weeks I have found fish (walleyes) along thick green cabbage and coontail edges,  deep basin transitions along steep breaks, and also suspended over deep water chasing forage.  One thing that remains constant during this time of year, regardless of temp., is that the days are getting shorter and the weeds are dying. Key in on the remaining green weeds, if your targeting shallow fish, and utilize your electronics to find schools of baitfish in deep water, either free roaming basins, or just off steep breaks. Lots of patterns going on right now that are putting fish in the boat. HAVE FUN!

        Fall is very nearby and things are going the way they should.  Fishing is good, it is too windy and the water is cooling down quickly.....On this weeks report and important bit on our very own Aquatic Invasive Species......Enjoy it!

      That's understandable given how you use the back reel technique.  I haven't used it the same way. Most of my trolling is done with baitcasters or levelwinds with counters.  The jigging part I hadn't considered before. "David, have you ever parred with a 7 iron?" "Well, Roy, it never occurred to me to even try."
