      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 .

Does anybody ever pull cranks on the sand out in front of Greystone or Zorbaz during the day or night?

I will be up this weekend searching for the 'eyes. Any other pointers would be great. Thanks.

Yes, but you can also go further past greystone out in front of barkeys, 3 seasons, etc.
or go the othewr way out in front of the campgrounds as well.
Of course there are many other places to do this, but these are a couple I have had o.k. luck with pulling cranks at night , and the area you were wondering about.
Out in front of greystone though, maybe someone else can give their input, I think if I remember right it drops off pretty good there.

plus think there are usually some bigger sail boats sitting around there,(not sure anymore) with my luck, I would probably run into one when its dark, HEH

Run over and try the amor flats as well,
I usually use the original floater myself,

dano2 is correct.

This is the time of year that you can start to see boats lining up on the top of the first drop all the way from the Otter Tail Lake Nursing Home to almost the Greystone.

In front of the Greystone the drop does swing in toward shore and it is hard to navigate the break, especially at night. (Those Sailboats do mark a pretty good hole where the break goes straight out from shore)

Good Luck Crank'n!

Thanks for the advice guys. I figured I should share my results.

Friday night my partner and I got our limit on Amor Flats in 6' of water from 10:30 PM until Midnight pulling # 13 black/gold and black/silver Rapalas. Real nice fish...17 - 21".

Saturday we got 8 fish in the weeds east of Amor Point pitching jigs and plastics, no bait. Again, nice fish between 16 - 18".

Sunday we just hammered the fish on Balmoral Flats in that big NW wind in the afternoon pulling # 13 Rapalas in about 7' of water. We got our limit of 15 - 17" fish and we released 5 fish over 24". The fish were just suicidal in that wind. What a blast.

No doubt the cranks were the ticket this past weekend but it was also fun catching the fish in the weeds on plastics. I almost felt like a bass fisherman, which isn't a good feeling. (hahaha)

Good luck to all and again, thanks for the tips.
