      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 .

A good lake for fall fishing

Recommended Posts

Guest

This is the first year that I've owned a boat. I've done most of my fishing in Mille Lacs/Brainerd area. I'd like to find one or two lakes to target in the St. Cloud area for early and late fall and some ideas on locations/techniques would be appreciated as well.

Koronis and Rice are very good in the fall. A bit farther west, Green Lake is also excellent in the fall.

Easy E, if you are looking for a lake close to St. Cloud you might want to check out Mayhew Lake. It might not look like much of a lake, but it is close and it holds some nice fish. It has a good population of northerns with decent size, some sunfish, some nice bass, and some dandy crappies if you can find them and get them to bite. It is not much of a walleye fishery though, but they are in there.

jimbo, Mayhew Lake is north east of St. Cloud about 15 miles give or take a couple. Take Benton County 1 from St. Cloud north, and then turn east on Benton County 43, and you will drive right past the lake. When you are on 1 in you come to the town of Mayhew Lake you have gone too far. It is a small lake, and periodically througout the summer it has a couple of alge blooms where the water turns green, but other than that it is a good place to fish.

I have been gone for a long time but I am back. When you are looking for a fall fishing lake, don't forget about Big Birch. No matter what you are after, Big & Little Birch are great in the Fall. In late fall the Horseshoe Chain really heats up if you are after Big Walleye. The only problem is fitting in the fishing with all the hunting.ScottS

I have fished Mayhew a find it especially good in the winter for crappies off the sunken island. As far as a good bite right now I was up the lake Alexander(N. of little falls 20min.) and did very well. Stick to the NE. Once darkness hits it can be very effective to slowly backtroll a nightcrawler on a single gamikatzu red hook. Need at l;east a six foot leader. During the day smaller pike minnows on jigs along weededges(what is left of them) and also steep breaks 15-25. Good luck >"///><
