      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 .

If you're looking to fill the gap that the end of the walleye season brings it may be time to turn your attention to these speckled beauties.Fished several different lakes this past week for crappie, and am starting to see more action each day.

As far as numbers go, both Bass and Low lakes were topping the list. For nice ten to twelve inchers, East Twin, Fall and Birch led the way with the larger fish, a pretty sixteen incher that tipped the scale at one and a half pounds our of Birch.

Almost all fish were caught in sixteen to twenty-two feet of water on the smallest of minnows.

I have had similar success on all those lakes except Fall. No idea really were to go on that lake. Went to a little lake called Range at the end of the Cloquet line on Thursday, and managed to pull up some really nice fish in the 11-13 inch range, and also a couple over that. We fished anywhere from 14fow-21fow, and like Russ said, on the smallest of minnows.

I actually had a good morning bite this past weekend, but I normaly fish afternoons just for the fact I'm in the shop normally in the morning.

From the other guys I'm fishing with, the bite happens more so in the afternoon.

Rymann, I just had a guy in the shop that came from Fall Lake and they fished at the N.E. end of Mile Island. They caught a few really nice ones and one in particular was a 16"er.

Cool deal Russ, thanks for the info!! I have had the best bite times in the afternoon as well, with 330 being the hottest.I have also really been nailing some real nice sunnies in 7-11fow on white and oarange jigs, and jigs with the two blades on them around the eyelit. We should hook up sometime and head out, or anyone else for that matter.

What's the interview for if you don't mind me asking? I think we are both in the Natural Resource field and I'm wondering if I missed out on something or if it may be a job I applied for.

Oh, and Good Luck, BTW! smile

Ah, yes.. I didn't apply for those.

I do know a few folks that will be doing that. One of them will be your boss/supervisor, I believe...

Should be a fun gig!

      What did you and Wanderer find for ice thicknesses at the lakes you were on?
    • Rick G
      Sorry for no more live updates. Got too busy fishing...lol Pretty decent morning bite, slow afternoon, followed up by a very good evening bite. Plenty of noce fish caught if you worked for them. 
    • eyeguy 54
      fun day for sure.   good to see those that popped up. get that eye pic up rick! Thx Moose for starting us out in a good area and for lining it up.

      Looks like you had a better bite than I did. I really didn’t expect all my gear to be that bad hand pulling out.  Big time failure on my part to not bring my wheeler.  I have too much of a spearing Jones to have left it all back at the truck. I brought a few gills, a seed, a crappie and a 25 inch walleye home.  Biggest gill went 8.  I went through a half dozen heavy pike suckers on the tip up but never dropped the spear.  Only saw one 20 incher that never really got in the hole.  The walleye inhaled the sucker and got the hooks in the throat. Glad you guys got some nice ones!

      I found a new unopened Minnesota V6.0 on Craigslist for 75$ and it was only 2 miles from my house saved me a trip to Cabela's.

      I’m sure we will still be waiting for a bit for even walkable ice but hopefully people in the area can keep there eyes and ears open and let the rest of us know how the ice is and when it get here.
