      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 .

That would suck if Pomme de Terre froze out. I go there every spring and catch a bunch of nice bass. I also usually pick up alot of northerns and a few walleyes. I used to ice fish it alot for walleyes, but started going half the distance to catch perch in ND.

Pomme De Terre, with the river running into it? I'm not sure an areator would do alot more than the river. I was out there this fall for divers, you couldn't see your feet when you were knee deep in that lake.

Yeah with that river running in strong you wouldnt think it could freeze out. Maybe a few parts?

There may be a river running through it, but is there a very shallow, weedy body of water upstream at all? I'm not familiar with the area, but we have a lake down here that has the ottertail river running through it. The lake to the north of it, also part of the river, is shallow and weedy which brings "dead" water into this lake and it kills out. When weeds decompose oxygen is used up so it speeds it up even more. Just a thought on what might be happening.

Pomme has a huge weedy flat where the river comes in. I know Gilbert in Douglas County was opened up and it's not on the list. Just remember, you need to have tags on your gill nets!

That link is incomplete. Wouldn't do much good at this point to open others with the close of liberalized fishing three days away. Pomme has a great chance of winterkill along with most of thepuddles on the pomme de terre river and the chippewa chain. Not much flow in the rivers, and coming out of dead lakes the water does not pick up much oxygen, and cycles right down the chain.

Lake Pomme De Terre is alive and well! We just closed the Walleye season with a bang. The fish were in shallow water and VERY healthy!

      From someone who grew up as a back reeling aficionado, I've learned to appreciate a quality drag on a reel.  It's the one thing I'll gladly pay for. Modern drag systems are so much better than they used to be.  Not taking advantage of them is leaving a lot of the value of a quality reel on the table.  Unused and wasted. So, is that the kind of opinion you were looking for?

      They are already established in OT.  Pulled docks at my sisters place with about 75% covered in zebes.  Wear shoes when your in the water.

      I noticed this spring that the higher end Shimano Stradic and others have eliminated the ability to back reel (no reverse) which I believe is a huge mistake, I don't like it!    any others have comments?

      Went up north grouse hunting it was fun. I must say having a dog makes it better.  This weekend is duck opener and I am jacked up for it.

      The public launch at The Landing on the west end stays open until the ice sets in, but they do pull the dock sometimes around the end of October / beginning of November.

      Just curious if people are finding fish moving into fall patterns yet or still finding them in more summer locations?  I've been finding good sized panfish in deeper water myself around more mid lake structure. Most of the lakes I've been on are still pretty green with algae and weeds.
