      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 .

Went out to a north metro lake tonight and was pleasently suprised. Got some nice largemouth bass early in the day i think 5 between 14 and 17 inches here is a picture of 1 of them.

A little later on i had a walleye move in got that one on a jiggin rap made 15"s too bad season was closed.

Caught some nice sunfish all day long kept one that made 8 inches. Later on the crappies moved in i was set up in 11 FOW right at the weedline and i started to see marks 1-5 feet under the ice so i brought my jigging rap up and nailed 3 crappies right in a row 2 9.5"s and 1 10.5"s. Nice night to be on the ice and it sure was fun watching all the fish come in and hit on the aqua vu,

Seems to me bass action picks up now the later it gets into spring.

Those fish up high are usually aggressive and fun. Tough to pick up on electronics. The first fish I got sunday eve. was a 9.5" crappie I spotted following my lure dropping down at about 5'. Caught a few more in the 4'-8' range over 17' FOW.Fish below 12' didn't want to bite

Yea those largemouth are fun. Looks like a great outing. I was out this afternoon on going after crappies and hooked into a 22 inch largemouth! This is definately the biggest bass I've ever caught, as I've caught several 20 inchers, a few 21's but never a 22. My guess was 6.5-7 lbs. She was a tank. It took me 7 minutes to land with 3 lb test and an ultralight. Didn't help getting caught around the vex cord. Caught her in 18 feet of water right off a weed flat on fish lake.

bassphis2005...he's sneaky (fishlakeman) but let's just do some deducing, as Holmes said ''eliminate all the impossible, and whatever remains, however improbable must be true.'' so here goes.6-7 lbs.probly not north of brainerd. or west of kandiohi.nothing east so must be more southwest or northwest or north/northeast of st.paul. in metro forum so not past maple plain, forest lake with none due west. so southwest, northwest or north/northeast. 18 feet of water, ''right off weed flat''. 18 feet deep and we must deduce that it is about 15 feet at least ''on'' the weedflat. so based on water clarity in remaining lakes and what depth weeds can grow in it must be in \:\/ ''Maple Grove''. grin.gif WHEW, that fishy detective stuff is draining. sleep.gif

Or you could do it the easy way like I did... Metro Area forum, look at his "Location" lists Maple Grove so fish lake in Maple Grove. ;\)

Im not 100% sure dont think there are any walleyes in Fish lake in Maple Grove. I used to fish it quite a bit before I got into muskie fishing. Then again I dont walleye fish either.

      Hey Moose , sounds like some tough shooting as of late for you at those duckies . Just curious as to what choke you are using ?

      Has anyone ever stored with Oak Narrows Storage before? Need a spot to put a Polaris Ranger for the winter and thinking of calling them for a space, does anyone have any experience or feedback? Any other recommendations would be welcome. Need a 10x10 or 10x12 space likely.
      Thanks!

      the rum is back in its banks so bet the fishing is amazing? Anyone out trying? Where are all of you? I know it’s busy time but let us know what you are chasing.
    • monstermoose78
      I need to slow down and focus on shooting

      Tamarack Island Wilderness Lodge is pretty accommodating. Grassy Narrows Lodge is one of the nicer lodges in my opinion on the Canadian Southern portion. We made a point of stopping at a bunch of locations last year and this is good sized and really nice. At this point it would be my preferred Lodge on that portion of the lake. Both of these are boat into and on an island. Ryan

      any luck there? i've never had luck. hoping to break my unlucky streak soon.

      Good afternoon guys, I live in Burnsville and I was wondering if anyone has had much luck on Crystal Lake for bass and Pike? I've fished it a few times and only caught 2 bass in a total of 8 hours.  Not looking for any specific locations, but any tips would be much appreciated!!!   Live bait? Plastics? Troll cranks for pike? thanks guys, have a great day. Gabe
