      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 .

I haven't seen hardly any posts for the St. Cloud area. This has been a great fall for me. I haven't been catching great numbers of walleyes but they are nice, and with the weather that we have been having you cant argue unless you cant wait for the ice. I went out to the chain on Sunday and found a few on horseshoe. I didn't even have to hassle with catfish, that is a first in many years. I have also been fishing middle spunk with some success. Has everone put the boats into storage around here or what.

I've been out alot lately, I've had some decent success. Tried out a few area lakes I haven't fished much. Grand has produced a few walleyes for me, I'm just learning that lake. Rice has been a good bet also. "Lake X" has been the best for me though, I'll keep that secret to myself for now.

Fished above the dam in Sartell over the weekend. Used a large pink jighead/minnow combo and managed to catch a few walleyes in 23-30 ft. Also had three fish snap my line. Did manage to caatch about a four pound smally as well. Don't know what was snapping my line; monster walleye?

I have been fishing Kraemer lake and been pulling in nice sized crappies pretty regularly. This lake has been producing small fish for the last few years, so hopefully this trend continues threw the winter.

Good to hear there are a few diehards out there. I just got back from Hawii just in time to get the ice gear ready. With this wind I may get a little open water action in yet but it won't be long for the hard water.ScottS

First ice can be great for walleyes on both Elk and Briggs. I know that Elk is 8-9 ft. at the deepest. I have not done much for crappies on this location, but as soon as there is some safe ice walleyes should be biting

I tried under the bridge of hope on the 21st. for some eyes, but only managed to bring in a few smallmouths. This is below the Sartell dam. Ran out all the gas and time to concentrate on bowhunting until we get some hard water.

Can't say much more than Elk is a weird lake. I have only fished it a few times in the winter but for the most part I usually see a lot of people fishing in the middle. Straight out from the access. It is only 6-9 feet there. We tried that spot one night with minimal success.

The walleyes and a few crappies are still biting above the Sartell dam. jig/minnow combo and 3-ways and minnows. My dad was out over the weekend and gave me some good info.
Anyone have a particular early ice crappie hot spot they care to share.
Mine fave is Big Birch. If you find them, they are monsters. Hopefully I can find the time to hunt for some of them here as soon as the hard water comes.

HOGEYE have you fished Briggs Lake much for walleyes? I have only fished it for panfish and usually do fairly well.

Yes,
I fished it once on early ice and did manage to catch a few. Probablly about four years ago. I can't remember the spot, but I can find out as a friend of mine puts a permanant out every year.
