      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 .

Is this the little lake on the golf course?

I didn't know you could get out there without living on the course. My rents live real close to the lake and I have thought about fishing it but not sure how to get on.

There is a public carry-on access on the east side of the lake. you can use power augers in the winter, but cannot use outboards in the summer.

Elusive....

That is the one they're talking about. I just spoke to a coworker who lives right by there, and she says there's often quite a few cars parked there... I never had heard about that lake and I've lived in FL for 12 years... I'll be trying it out this weekend.

I have fished there for over 7 years catch and release, it has been getting worse every year. Winter it really seems to be hit hard. I remember when I first fished it was a great lake, but being less then 40 acres in size it has not sustained the fishing pressure it has been dealt. You will get a nice fish here and there but it is all but a memory of what it once was. Hopefully people who fish this lake will realize the damage it sustains from over fishing. I will never understand why people keep the fish from this lake for one very important reason. I have worked at a golf course and seen the chemicals used to make the grass green. All of the runoff from this course goes into that water and I can't help but think of what those chemicals could do to a person. This year I ended up fishing green, chisago, and south center and did very well. The best part was I got a few meals for the family and met a lot of new people in the process. Being that it was a big lake you feel less anomosity that people are taking "your fish"

Good point on the lake's 'fertility'... Don't want to be feeding the family a diet of crappie ala Scott's Fertilizer.

Sounds like it's a catch and releaser.... That's fine, as long as there's some quantities to be had, and/or some size to them.

It used to be good for quality of panfish and quantity of pike. Then a couple of fellas from st.paul came and cleaned it out in one season. I know all the good spots but the last time i was there was 3 years ago and it wasnt very good. I also blame it on the locals for trying to clean out the pike purposely to increase the size of the panfish but it actually did the opposite. a lake needs predators.
