      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 be great. I have a friend who is vacationing up there during the time frame I mentioned, so I let him know I'd work on getting him some information here being that I have never fished it.

Hey TO

funny seeing you here. All I know about pelican is that it is an awsome smallmouth fishery, but can't help you on the panfish.

You might want to try posting in the Vermilion forum, as most of those guys have probably fished Pelican

find big rocks sticking up in the middle of the lake and target them for small and large mouth bass. tons of smallish northerns in the weedy bays, and there are always sunnys and crappies to be had on the deeper weed edges if you can find them.

i think i recall years back catching 25 pike on 25 casts with a rooster tail spinner. they were pretty small, but it was fun to hook up every time i threw it out there.

Pelican lake is a tricky one to fish I have a cabin up there and you have to realy work to find the fish in late summer. I have been up there that time of year and have done realy well and times when I have not got any fish.

Elephant Lake is nearby and is a good producer of large Crappie and Bluegill. We have a cabin at Elephant and mostly troll for eyes and cast for smallies, but the past several years the pan fishermen have done very will both through the ice and in the open water. We pick up large Blues when trolling and an occasional Crappie when casting. Three panfishing couples who rented our cabin last season did well and will be back in June.
