      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 .

Ottertail County smallmouth action?

Recommended Posts

Guest

I visited with a DNR officer 2 1/2 years ago while ice fishing West Battle who indicated to me that there was an effort to re-establish smallmouths in some of the area lakes that once held self-sustaining populations. He mentioned Clitherall, Ten Mile, Pickerel, West Battle & Ottertail. I'm aware of and have fished the resident population on Lida, but am interested in other opportunities in the area, also. Do you suppose there are any sections of the Ottertail river that have fishable populations?

Any smallmouth junkies out there?

Pickerel lake near Amor has a fishable population of smallies, I was talking to the resort owner at his auction last fall and there are new cribs out there to help with the shortage of habitat. My biggest smallie came from the deep (47ft) fishing at night but you will pick up a few trolling crankbaits at night along the south shore, nice lake, have fun!!! Paul

Any word on the other lakes mentioned? Would it be worth my time to contact the DNR?
Thanks Paul.

I would start my search on the minnesota dnr lake surveys on their webpage, lots of good info there like numbers and sizes of fish, stocking efforts etc. One thing to keep in mind when reading their netting studies is that hoop nets are usually set shallow and gill nets are set deeper. That could give you a big hint on where the fish are on the date that the testing took place. I dont get down to clitheral or ten mile, little to far south. Paul
