      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 .

Any reports on Ottertail? I've talked to a few people who say it has been good. I would like to get out in the next few days but would like to see some current reports. Thanks!

The perch kept me busy last Saturday afternoon, and from about 5 to 5:40 the walleyes bit very well. I caught about 12 to 14, keeping two.

Fished this afternoon until dark - not good. Worst day I have had out there in some time. Fished in 20ft of water - 2 perch and 2 15" eyes. Maybe the front or maybe need to try a different spot!! Can't wait for some snow to smooth the traveling on the ice.

We fished it again on Saturday. Kept three perch and two walleyes. Not a very good day, but we still caught and released a lot of perch and about 15 small walleyes.

I saw a couple of full size trucks going atleast 50 mph. I wonder what would happen if a front tire were to hit an enlarged hole from all the water draining through them? Ouch!

Gissert,

It would be a good lesson for those idiots to wreck there trucks. There is no reason to drive that fast on a lake.

I heard it was a sloppy mess out on OT. Talked to your wife on Saturday morning said you were out on OT. South Turtle was pretty bad also. Had to get my house off the lake due to having a bunch of swirlies all around it doing the honey comb effect. Figured better safe than sorry. It was a real pain due to the high winds & the ankle deep water on top of the ice. I was soaked by the time we were done moving the house. Most of the houses were taken off the lake.
It is always strange looking down a 8" hole and in a couple hours or so it is 10 to 12". I will never get used to that.

Well hopefully we get the cold weather prodicted to freeze these lakes up solid again. Good luck out there.

Ah, the mighty B won his wheeler, huh? I'll have to give him crap about that.

I think the ice will be fine where you want to go. The forecast temps looke to be colder. Other that the washed out holes, It looked ok to me.

Don't be sorry, I found a neighbor with a 4 wheeler right after I stopped by your place. Said he would have no problem pulling it off he had just won his new four wheeler so he wanted to try pulling something anyways. I do appretiate you coming down to the landing and checking things out though. Are things freezing up decent out there or is this going to make crappy ice?
Do you think that ice will be OK out where my house was? Probably move it off that spot a bit but I hope to get it back out there New Years Day. Might be a slow process.(something tells me I will have a headache that morning).

      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
