      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 .

giant pout

a friend of mine just got back from LOW and said they did okay but he said he caught a 20 lbs pout. he said it was about 40" long. i'm sure that is very uncommon, but what is the largest pout you've ever caught. i'll try to get pictures later.

I haven't caught one anywhere near that size...my biggest was likely 24"; but then again I have only caught a handful.

the state record is 19.3 lbs, and was caught on LOW a few years back, if it was 20 it could have been a new state record. would love to see the pics of that baby.

This one was about 32 inches and was caught out on the flats. First one I ever caught and man talk about ugly and slimy. This thing seemed to posses some form of intellegence. When I put it back in the hole it was tail first and went down about a foot or so and maybe cause of the ice came back up and slithered out of the hole back onto the ice and turned around and went back into the hole head first then swam away.

Yeah. Lucky the other line was up and being rebaited when I realized the bobber was down. Took about 10 minutes to get the thing in the house. At least now I know when the fish turns into a helicopter it is an eel pout not a real fish.

A few years back a bunch of guy's I work with and I were up there fishing out of Bayview's houses. I'm the type of guy that has everything ready to roll and once everyone has their stuff in the fish house, I start fishing. I baited my bobber rod and set it down and as I was dropping a jiggin spoon down the other hole, my bobber disappears! I tell the guy's, who are still tying jigs on their line, "Fish on". I set the hook and my rod doubles over, "Big fish money is in my pocket, big 'eye!" I get it up to the hole and it's big ol' mister burbot. We still get a laugh out of that one.

About 10 yrs ago or so, we used to get into some pout action out of Babblers...We never latched onto any thing with size. But, I chuckled when reading the posts on what it does to the other lines. Rats nest is the perfect word! No use trying to unravel the knot, just cut and start over.

I have a great picture of a pretty big pout, however it seems too hard to figure out how to post it. Wish you could just attach a file and be on your way!

      use caution on the lakes in southern mn  there is a lot of lakes that have one or 2 spots of open water.  with that said where ive fished there has been a solid 5-6 inches as of yesterday  clear, cedar.cannon,elysian, circle.  i would use a spud bar to check if your going where people havent gone yet.

      Gotta tell ya. I've been doing a lot of thinking about those dusk into the evening crappie bites under the ice lately.

      Please stay off blue it is not good ice! Baxter is the only lake I walked but there is a bad spot out and to the left of the access. Where don’t find it. Stay east on Baxter the west is bad
    • monstermoose78
      Call search and rescue cause someone will go in on blue! It’s bad news out there. Baxter is the only lake around you would catch me on and just stay to away from the west side of the lake.
