      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 .

McCarrons Lake Question

Recommended Posts

Can you drive vehicles on McCarrons?? Also, do they have any restrictions on gas augers here? I have never been there and may check it out sometime. Thanks.

Let us know if you hit the jackpot goggleeye. \:\)

Used to live close to it but never had any luck either other than on panfish, there are a few decent sunnies to be had, or there were...

Well, if I get out there, I will be fishing for walleyes. Don't know if I will be able to do it though as I only have tonight and tomorrow to do it and then I am out of town for the weekend. Walleye closes on Sunday, so I will have to find some free time to get out there tonight or tomorrow. I will report if I do. Thanks for answering my questions.

I would consider fishing McCarron for walleye's a big waste of time. Even if you do catch one I highly doubt it'll top 12 inches. There's a handful of lakes not more than 10 minutes away that would be better.

Agreed.

I fish it for giggles out of the boat with my son, and catch stunted sunnies, and a decent amount of small northerns. However, if you like carp, and are stealthy enough from a boat to fish them near shallows, there are some real monsters in there. Some of the biggest I have ever seen, even compared to the 'sippi. Most of the shore is private though, and the spots you can reach on foot arent that great for them.

I have heard this about McCarrons. Someone did tell me though that there are some old ancient walleye stockings still roaming this lake though and that once in a while someone will pull up a pig. I just thought I would try it seeing how I can't buy a decent walleye on any of the other metro lakes. Even with my camera down, I have seen squat for walleyes on these metro lakes. Why I moved here is beyond me???? confused.gif\:\( What a mistake that was, oh well. I wish I lived close to Tonka, seems to be the only lake with decent numbers and sizes of eyes. I will report back if I make it out there.

I think you would fair better at gervais. It's only about 5 minutes away from mccarron. They stock it with fingerlings instead of fry, so the survival is better. Your chance at numbers and keepers are greater there.
