      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 .

just wondering on some suggestions on some lakes in this area. i'm looking for a lake where i can get some decent fishing while walking on the ice since i don't have a 4wheeler. i'm thinking about ottertail or big pine, but i know absolutely nothing about them??? looking at the ottertail map, it looks like there is a nice flat with a steep drop adjacent to it about a half mile out from the public access by pelican bay. looks like a good place to start looking along that drop? any info would be greatly appreciated!

Without going into too much detail, I would suggest that you have pretty good instincts. My permanent will probably be somewhere along that dropoff in about a month or so...

Don't overlook some of the nearby smaller lakes, though...Walker can be good for crappies in the winter, as can Buchanan.

Rap- Give it a month or so and you will see a large line of houses on that spot. I usually start off around there for the year.

Rap,

We had an aqua-view up there last winter. We could see roughly 6ft. If you are looking at color selection, I tend to favor metalics - gold & silver on cloudy days, and orange, pinks, chartruse on clear days. At night, I almost always end up using metalics. Everyone has their favorite jigs & spoons. As for location, there are several good areas. When ice becomes drivable I am normally out on the island structures.

Good Luck.

Ottertail is a fairly clear lake. Once when I was fishing on the South side, about 12 feet deep and a sunny day, I could see the perch and the white tips on the walleye tails. The thing is, the tops of thoes fish blend in very well with a sand bottom with no weeds to highlight the bottom.
I have also had very good results using an Aqua-view camera on OT. As rookie said, within six feet one can see quite well. It's a fun lake for fishing. After all, to my knowledge all the walleyes stocked into Ottertail county lakes come from OT.

OK then. Good luck.
