      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 .

Gissert,

Did you say the ice is off on S.T Lake already? I better get my butt in gear and get my boat ready for some fishing. Are all the other lakes pretty well ready to go to?

Almost all of the lakes are ice free! W. Battle has some ice floating around yet and that is all I have seen for ice. I don't know about Otter Tail Lake's conditions.

Hey Juice, when can we fish again...you know where. smile.gif Are the craps in the shallows or still deep??

Hey Juice -

Glad to see you here. I was thinking about those crappies the other day. We chowed down on the last of them last night for supper. Yum!

Jigging Bob -

The ice went out April 7. Put the dock out yesterday. The water is still very cold to me, but I can't keep Nellie out of it. Saw some pike sunning themselves in the shallows just before the ice went out. Water is very clear right now.

ChuckN -

Did you get your boat running better?

Hey Gissert

Nelly is sure a crazy pup. Burrr!! You must have had waiters on when you put the dock in I take it.

That is great news to here about the ice. I can't wait for a warmer weekend. I have been going through fishing withdrawls. Been busy busy at work. I haven't even touched my boat. Might just have to run it the way it is. Oh well. The last time I checked the fish don't mind a ugly boat.

Well Have a sip of bourbon for me and hope to be out there soon.

I hate it when people talk lake "X".

But, the funny thing, is that when I talk lake "X", it is OK. smile.gif

Like lake "X" last year somewhere in Ottertail county on bass opener that absolutely blew my socks off with numbers and average size. Ya think I won't be back there this year on opener? I may just sleep in my boat to optimize my time on the water there.

Oh enough badgering, East Battle went out Saturday last weekend, and we had the first dock in the lake(I think). At least we didn't see any other docks anywhere so we claimed victory.

Man usse guys are getting the blood pumping. Betta can't stand the warm weather this week, that honey do list is a bummer. I wish I was out, expect the fish to head shallower this week.

New to Fergus area this year, lived in DL prior and too manny lakes to fish. Can't wait to try some new lakes and find some honey holes for me and da two boys (6 and 9). Well da boys love the snacks, but I love the fishing. See ya out on the water.

      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.
    • Wanderer
      Sounds good! May an oversized deer with obscenely large antlers find its way to you!  
    • DLD24
      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.
    • ANYFISH2
      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.
    • Wanderer
      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.
