      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 .

Which side of the lake did u find that? There was a dead doe melted into the ice southeast of rush brown this late winter. Maybe a deer bone?.. Buddy of mine was out there this winter and while scouting around his house he found a spot where the crows had been eating on a coot that was froze into the ice. He looks around and theres a few coots and a couple other ducks froze into the ice! Wierd.

Far from a fish biologist but could see that being from a gill plate covering.....try googling operulum bone and see what comes up.

Looks like the shoulder blade off of a racoon that had been in water for some time.

Yup definately chupacabra, mystery solved. Fun thanks for the responses. On the same excursion my 5 year old found a great shell fossil too. The kids find the coolest stuff.

We fished this weekend only finding a few crappies. The boys still had fun. We did manage to finish the dock, get the lift out and the boat is on the lift. So we are have the boat to get out and look for fish with. The water is still too cold. I might get out this weekend in the boat but mother nature will decide that so we will see.

Looks like the SW corner of West Norway! I was in those trees and rushes often as a child trying to untangle a wayward cast!

Yup, location is right. The water has not warmed up enough out there yet. We caught 2 crappies this weekend and when they are 5-6 inches long they are likly not spawning. However the places for them to explore, trees to climb also provide lots of entertainment when the fish do not cooperate.

      A return client for a couple years brought fish grips with him... After watching him mangle a couple fish I asked him not to bring them anymore. Big fish need more care when landing in my experience. I hand land most muskies. This helps with not bringing a green (not ready) fish into the boat to hurt itself and the boat. With musky fishing growing in popularity I'm noticing a lot more fish with net scars from green fish. For a young musky angler learn correct technique early. The scars after a 4 fish day are a badge of honor. One of the best gifts I've received for my musky gear is a good pair of wire cutters. I use them to cut hooks in an emergency or out of a poorly hooked fish. Or if you can find it...a jar of musky slime cologne, my wife loves it. Ha! Good luck

      I fished shakopee lake in onamia on monday it had ten inches of good ice. Lots of air bubbles but seemed solid. I would guess most lakes in the area have enough to at least walk on but u can never trust ice so be carfull bring spud bar and ice picks and a friend just in case

      Thanks for the shout out Moose.  I have plans to go out this weekend but to another lake.  I’ll ask if the other party wants to stick to those plans or head east instead.
    • Wanderer
      Yep, that’s what I’ve heard.  I’ve used loose powder quite a bit before.  My first ML was Hawken kit gun in 50 cal.  True black powder in an actual powder horn.  Patch and ball.   The only thing I didn’t like about ML season back then is I couldn’t wear the traditional clothes too!
