      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 know this area has great walleye fishing. I also love to fish for smallmouth bass. I'm wondering if there are any 'sleepers' in this area.

I've ran across alot of nice smallies on north lida. Pickerel lake has put out my biggest smallie currently, right about 5 lbs. That fish came out of 47 ft of water at 2 in the morning.Thought I had a pretty decent waldo! lolol We also pick up alot of them trolling gold/black jointed rapalas along the south shore at night. West battle lake holds the current state record at 8 lbs. Hope this helps a bit. Have a super season!!! Paul

Minneman, Yup the one between amor and maine. I didnt think it had smallies either till I started catching them. I know the dnr has been working on the largemouth situation in that lake as well. Not sure if the largemouths have pushed the smallies out of their nieche tho. I think their numbers might be pretty limited. Paul

The Ottertail river from just north of Fergus is starting to have catchable smallies now. The DNR has put in log bunks and is trying to manage it as a smallmouth fishery. It is strictly catch and release fishing on this river for quite a few years yet. I caught several last fall below Orwell dam west of town, but I think they can be found anywhere downstream from Diversion dam northeast of Fergus.

South Ten Mile Lake south of I-94 by Dalton has smallies it it as well.

I have not heard of any smallies coming out of West battle for a long time now.
