      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 .

Just looking for someplace in northern Minnesota hopefully closer to Duluth area, but will travel. I want to take kids out and get some perch big enough to eat. Any clues would greatly be appreciated.

I caught a few big ones right out from the Pike Lake landing......don't know if you want to eat them from there from what I've heard, but none the less, we did catch them.

I know a place you can find jumbos. Their men don't like it when you try and pick them up and they kinda smell like old cigarettes, but the jumbos are there nonetheless.

I caught quite a few on black duck a couple weekends ago. NW of the island, about half way between the island and the the north shoreline, in 17' of water.

Check out the black duck area forum. The drake motel keeps pretty good tabs on the bite, they also have a good fish cleaning shack. I think if you stay there, they'll give you gps coordinates, maybe even loan you the gps unit. They're great people.

But the perch bite was definitely on. Caught several in the 9 inch range.

There's a few Jimbo's in Fish Lake. I would second blackduck though. Every time I go there we get monster perch. Pike Lake will give you a lot of action and I suppose you could sort throughout the day and wind up with a few certified jumbos.

I like chadwicks standards for jumbos. According to him only 3 of ours were jumbos (over 10) kept 5 about 8inches and many many 5 to 6 inches. We were out on armstrong. Am still looking for the jumbo jackpot and will be up again around ely next week.

I havent seen anything close to a Jumbo lately. I also consider a Jumbo about 10" or bigger. A few little ones yesterday on Fish Lake. Everything is getting to be little up there lately though. I think fish are in transition and not schooled as tight as they were.

We found fish in 4'-18' of water.
