      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 .

I am looking for some information on Long lake. We purchased a home on the lake and have heard several different stories on how the lake and fishing has changed over the years and now I see that there is a Trout stream that flows into the lake. Does any one out there have any history on the lake?

GAH! Which Long Lake are you talking about? If it is the Long Lake between Aitken and Glen,across from Dam Lake, I might be able to help. You might also want to scroll back in the forum. I answered a similar question last December or January about it. I will wait for your response to this.

GAH: Long Lake was an old Granite Quarry back in the late 19th century. Back then they used to quarry a lot of Granite in Aitkin County. They quarried down an hit water and flooded the Quarry and the result is now Long Lake. It has a hole that is over 100 feet. It contains a few walleyes and some pike but it is mostly a panfish lake. Lots of sunfish, crappies and a few perch.

Most people do not fish Long Lake because it is overshadowed by Dam lake. Dam has more structure and is a better Walleye lake than Long Lake. If you do fish Long move around a lot. You can get your limit of panfish but like I said you are going to have to travel a bit to do so.

There are Walleyes and Pike and a few largemouth around the docks and shallows but in my experience they are few and far between. I would cross the road and fish Dam if you want larger fish than sunfish, crappies or perch.

Take care;

Tight Lines.

      Well, I have to pay for registration on my boat trailer to run it on the road, and the boat to run it on the lake, why shouldn't wheel houses?  I guess I don't feel bad for the wheel house guys.

      No not yesterday. 2 weeks ago when we had that first cold spell I went out on Baxter, Blue and Long and checked the ice. They were locked up but only had 1-2" inches so didn't venture out too far. Baxter probably was walkable but had open water on the back end so figured I stay off. Last Sunday I went and checked them out after that warm rainy week we had and they had open water, so yesterday I skipped checking them and went farther north. But I did notice most lakes were locked up on the drive up there. Cant wait for the local lakes to get some decent ice!

      Wondering if big sandy is clear enough to spear fish when the ice comes on? Never done it before and would like to give it a try

      Bryan did you check any lakes around me?
    • Bryan P
      Had to scratch the ice fishing itch, so I drove up north to the Mille Lacs lake area and found a smaller lake with 4-5" of ice. Punch a few holes and found some crappies and sunnies. Nothing big but was fun time and a great way to start my ice seaso n! Bring on the ice!  Check out the video: https://youtu.be/BTTv_G07PB8

      Hey, I resemble that remark!!   Plus my wife only went fishing with me once the whole time that we have been married and she brought a book! I got her trained in right away. Sorry about your training problem!
    • leech~~
      Ok but with all those Trout. Bring a tow rope as I may be stuck in the slush!
