      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 .

Rose....
Walleyes are in there. If you get into them, they are going to be pretty nice sized. Some serious slab crappies in here!!!

Spirit...
Walleyes too are in there. Fished pretty hard. Crappies are probably a better choice.

6...
Not the best walleye producer. Decent panfishing lake though.

5...
Private. No public access. Need to get access from Fairhills resort and I don't think you will get much. Who knows though.

Leek...
Some walleyes. Old neighboor of mine has a 30" on his wall from there. Best bet for crappies.

Rose,
Have fished it a little for crappies. West finger or what ever you want to call it. there is a spot I'm sure you would find it full of fish houses. Crappies usually is what they catch haven't fished it in acouple years. Nice thing about that spot is there is some deep water near and you can set some tip ups up and wait to see if anything goes off. They have a lot of two digit northerns in there. Have heard of catching walleyes on the east side of the lake near the sharp drop but that is during the summer.

If your thinking around 5 and 6 why don't you take a gander at 7 (scalp) try your luck. There should be houses out there around the island just south of the access. Don't remember the lake off the top of my head for much structure just fished the lake acouple times myself but I want to say there is a ridge or an island just south of the access and also have fished the NW corner during the summer and caught some walleyes. IF you find them they are usually decent.

Good Luck Keep us posted

      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.

      I need to slow down and focus on shooting

      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
