      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 .

Is Dead Lake dead?

Recommended Posts

Going to fish Dead Lake next week. Anybody fished it lately? What's going on? Any fish on the RAMPAGE? We did well on crappies the last time we fished there, but they were on the small side.

We did well on the weekend of July 4th but it has been pretty slow since then. We are picking up some fish but not as much. Have been moving around to find the fish.

Dead lake is dead and you should not waste your time fishing or buying any property on this lake. Ottertail or Rush are much better as is Big Pine.

Cronkite, next time try not to make it quite so obvious that you're a property owner on the lake! ;-) Dead is a GREAT fishing lake. The DNR is just starting to stock Dead with walleyes, so in a few years the walleye fishing should be fantastic, to go along with Dead's already fabulous panfishing.

Just got back from a 7 day vacation on Dead lake. Fished every morning from sunrise until 9:00AM. Caught and released 15-20 Largemouth Bass every morning. They ranged in size mostly from 12-18 inches with a few topping 20 inches and the largest going 21.5 inches. They were all fat footballs and lots of fun. Plastic worms, poppers and white twister jigs all worked. Could not find many crappies and when I did they were in the 10 inch range with the largest going 13 inches. I am sure the real Bass fisherman do very well on this lake.

      Got some grouse and saw some nice coveys. The biggest was 6 birds but found couple groups of 5. That is always fun.

      we mainly jigged fatheads in front of their mouths. 2 weeks ago also and tried a few different times over 3 days this trip. water is still crazy low so I don't think many boats will be using access. Also tried a couple different plastics and some gulp. Probably ready to go crazy up there soon.  Last year at this time it was really good. Might get there once more before ice time but not sure.

      Been thinking about breaking out the Jiggin Raps, might have to give that a shot. It's been too crowded out there this weekend with MEA going on.

      Sounds good! May an oversized deer with obscenely large antlers find its way to you!

      Well the weather was pretty crappy but the fish were biting...Had to sort through but kept some for dinner. Caught a variety today, eyes,jumbos,crappie and a few smallies... rigging on or next to rocks worked best for us.

      hummm, hadn't heard a thing?
    • ANYFISH2
      Good luck. Maybe we will see you Friday. I will let you know how things are looking by us as the weekend goes by.

      I still hope it's double!  I just went over the map with my brother and talked about our options.  We have enough places to go for sure.  It's always fun planning and talking about past hunts. I put out the question to the other two guys about staying in camp vs the house.  We'll see what they decide.  I hauled our "cabin" home from Ely today so we should have plenty of room if they wanna camp.
