      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 .

Finally the time has come to venture to god`s part of the world. Just wanted to get some feedback on the status on the lake. I know you don`t personally fish Star much, but your usually on the pattern`s at the time. So what`s going on up there? Are the bull`s on the bed`s yet? I would like to get the kid`s on some of those hulk like pannies. They are a blast in anybody`s boat. I did get my fish back from last year`s trip and she is really pretty. Now ALL THOSE BIG FEMALES GO BACK. Really pumped to get up there. My 10 year old daughter even asked if she had fresh line on her reel`s for the trip. Sweet! If you or anybody else reading have some updated info for us, it`s always appreciated. Thanks Flip

Hey flip! As of tuesday night I'm still lindyrigging shiner minnows in 16 to 24 ft of water, they have been outdoing the "tubbed" baits 4 to 1 in my boat, the spinner/crawler leech thing I think should be going by this weekend. Water temps were running 64 to 66 degrees and the deeper weedlines are starting to show up decent. find a windblown edge and go to work! You did it last summer! Yes the gills are bedding too.MMMMMMM lolo Have a fun trip !!! Paul

Flipnripem,
Had some clients on Star last sat. We found some nice fish in 8-12' weed lines. The weather was cloudy and 15 mph wind from the east.I agree with Paul, this weekend with sun and light wind look a little deeper and stay with light fireballs and golden shiners. Noticed there was quit a bug hatch, so might be time to try the crawlers, leech rigs.Good Luck and enjoy !

Thanks guy`s, this is why I enjoy spending my time on the FM website. People are always willing to stick there neck`s out for a fellow fisherman. Nine day`s straight on the water is never enough! Saturday start`s out with a bass tourny on a local sweet spot. I do believe I`ve got them pinned down, and that`s a good way to start a tourny day! As soon as I get home it`s load the kid`s in the van and a six hour road trip to heaven. May even look you up this year. My inlaw`s converted the lake house to a permanent and installed a dell. Thanks again, Flip

Fellas, I just finally got back to reality today. Man wordk does cut into a guy`s fishing time. Picture perfect weather for a jet skier or a sun seeker. Don`t get me wrong I did enjoy the weather and the kid`s caught a ton of gill`s. Most of them went back for a trip this fall? Bass have my number on this lake? Is it possible that a lake with awsome weed lines and perfect habitat for bass doesn`t hold a fishable population of bass? Anyhow, some part`s of the lake have a good jump on summer. The cabbage is coming along good. If you could find a thick patch, there were a lot of fish of all species. Yep even the bullheads were on the bite. I had a hard time with the eye`s untill fri. The wind blew a bit, I`d guess 25 to 30 for three day`s in a row. That really positioned the fish. Pretty tough to stay on them consistantly. Managed a limit on sat. and a bunch of them snake`s. Did pull the boat on thur. and went to Dead for the day. Nice water and plan to get back again someday. Sorry I don`t have any big fish storie`s, but again it is a treat to able to fish the lake`s area. P.S. why does a guy that fished 10 day`s straight want to get back on the water the next day? Flip

      Has anyone ever stored with Oak Narrows Storage before? Need a spot to put a Polaris Ranger for the winter and thinking of calling them for a space, does anyone have any experience or feedback? Any other recommendations would be welcome. Need a 10x10 or 10x12 space likely.
      Thanks!

      the rum is back in its banks so bet the fishing is amazing? Anyone out trying? Where are all of you? I know it’s busy time but let us know what you are chasing.

      Tamarack Island Wilderness Lodge is pretty accommodating. Grassy Narrows Lodge is one of the nicer lodges in my opinion on the Canadian Southern portion. We made a point of stopping at a bunch of locations last year and this is good sized and really nice. At this point it would be my preferred Lodge on that portion of the lake. Both of these are boat into and on an island. Ryan

      Good afternoon guys, I live in Burnsville and I was wondering if anyone has had much luck on Crystal Lake for bass and Pike? I've fished it a few times and only caught 2 bass in a total of 8 hours.  Not looking for any specific locations, but any tips would be much appreciated!!!   Live bait? Plastics? Troll cranks for pike? thanks guys, have a great day. Gabe
