      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 .

With the warmer temps the past week our anglers are doing a lot more hole hopping on the area lakes and doing very well at the numerous lakes for panfish. This weekend has been a very productive with good numbers of panfish (perch, sunnies and crappies~although better luck with the crappies in the later afternoon hours) coming through the fish cleaning shack. This weekend folks have really spread out and hit many different lakes in the area, with the main mode of travel for our folks being wheelers and sleds. With the warmer temps the snow is decreasing on the lakes and making travel a little easier, but we will see what happens this week as the temps are predicted around the 40 degree mark. Perch bite has been decent on the Duck in the deeper depths and since the fishing derby last weekend travel is a little easier going out of the public access where it was plowed; although there still are two plowed paid accesses on Blackduck.

I was fishing gilstad with slicker on saturday. We started fishing around 1 and at first all we could find was tiny perch, tons of them. We tried some of the deep 40 foot holes and ended up marking a couple things on the vexilar that werent acting like the perch, so i think they were crappie. Then we tried really shallow and ended up with more perch and a bass. We ended up setting up for the evening in 40 feet on the main lake side of the island/point. We started seeing little schools of suspended fish and ended up getting a 10-11 inch crappie, and some smaller ones, along with a sunfish. Then the vexilars went crazy and we marked tons of little lines slowly coming higher and higher of the bottom, another fisherman said bloodworms? Whatever they were we didnt catch or see a fish the rest of the night.

      Got some grouse and saw some nice coveys. The biggest was 6 birds but found couple groups of 5. That is always fun.

      we mainly jigged fatheads in front of their mouths. 2 weeks ago also and tried a few different times over 3 days this trip. water is still crazy low so I don't think many boats will be using access. Also tried a couple different plastics and some gulp. Probably ready to go crazy up there soon.  Last year at this time it was really good. Might get there once more before ice time but not sure.

      Been thinking about breaking out the Jiggin Raps, might have to give that a shot. It's been too crowded out there this weekend with MEA going on.

      Sounds good! May an oversized deer with obscenely large antlers find its way to you!

      Well the weather was pretty crappy but the fish were biting...Had to sort through but kept some for dinner. Caught a variety today, eyes,jumbos,crappie and a few smallies... rigging on or next to rocks worked best for us.

      Good luck. Maybe we will see you Friday. I will let you know how things are looking by us as the weekend goes by.

      I still hope it's double!  I just went over the map with my brother and talked about our options.  We have enough places to go for sure.  It's always fun planning and talking about past hunts. I put out the question to the other two guys about staying in camp vs the house.  We'll see what they decide.  I hauled our "cabin" home from Ely today so we should have plenty of room if they wanna camp.
