      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 .

beers is a good all around lake for about anything, including muskys, you can use your boat there. bass lake you can catch trout, either fish from shore or rent a boat from the park, corn n crawlers work good. good luck!

Fished Beers last week. Talked to the ladies at the enterance to the park. They said there have been a few follows but very few hook ups lately. I got a small muskie and two decent largemouth bass. The only other muskie I saw came up to check out a loon slapping the water. Kind of cool. Strangely, not one northern. you can throw all the usual muskie baits but I prefer pitching a regular old white spinnerbait up to the shore. You have a chance for bass, northerns and muskies all at once. As for Bass lake. If you rent a boat, try a tiny crayfish crankbait from Rebel. A friend let me in on this and it works great. Just throw it behind the boat and row around.

I like a nightcrawler and a small marshmellow for the trout.

Personally, I would opt for the marshmallow, and leave the nightcrawler for the trout.

Are you guys serious? Marshmellows?? That means I need to get trout stamps then.

How do you fish for trout? I've never fished for trouts before.

best bet is using a bobber, 4lb line, gold #12 salmon egg hook, splitshot. the tough part is how deep.

Hey I would try this for the trout. It always seems to work for me.. You use small raps (floating, or countdowns) SMALL ones..and put that smelly powerbait scent designed for trout.. And I've also used marshmellows and they do work!!

hi all-
i think the muskies are starting to bite if you catch them on the right day (weather dependent). my brother caught a small one and saw 5 others on the morning of the 18th. another cold front was about to push through if i'm not mistaken. that always makes it better.

hey guys-
the muskies are biting! i have not fished beers yet this year but i think they should be way up in the shallow/thick cabbage. the water temp is about 64 so i would throw a high riding bucktail or a jerkbait on those weed tops. i was out on battle the night of the 22nd. 3 fish bit and i landed a 34" and a 49". i would try to plan an outing before/during the cold front. the winded areas will be harder to fish but will hold active/hungry fish.
take care and good luck.

Fished Beers last weekend (8/21) and didn't even see a fish...nothing...tried everything we could think of in all sorts of cover - or lack of cover - and saw nothing. Will try it again in about a week.
