      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 use Northland tackle only!! Use both #8 Forage minnow Jig and #4 Creep Worm with super Glo-Paint. I also use the Glo-Buster to charge them up. Put two or three waxies on at a time and I also like to put some crappie scent in a medicine bottle so I can dip the jig and waxies in just before sending it down to do it's business!!! I prefer the glo/pink and glo/blue combos for colors. Good luck!!!

Friday night 2 of us got our limits. We were about out of Rogers about 4 miles NE. Moved 3 time before we found them. Once we found them we limited out in 45 minutes. It was unreal!! You put your line down and took a drink and looked back and the bobber was gone. We have done well before but nothing like this. cool.gif

was out fri nite - 4 of us total. used the usual gear, yellow glow outfished red glow this trip. went out to my usual spot (still @ 14')and started catching slabs at 7:30.
the 4 of were done at 8:30 w/60 slabs. sounds like the next trip i'm going to have to move into shallower h2o. might have to give them waxies a try next trip too, can't wait for that daytime bite. (sounds like it has just started to take off a skosh)

Hey Nibbler, definitely bring the waxies. I filled out too Friday night out of Rogers about a mile and a half on the east road. I could not get the glow red or a minnow to work so I switched to a neon green with a waxie and they smothered it!

Well we went out Saturday. We found a place that we heard was usually pretty good, just on the north side of the pressure ridge where it turns. Anyway we caught a few perch there but no crappies. We had the house set up and all but no fish on the graph so we finally gave up. We moved to an area where a lot of cars were, We think right over the cribs but we're not sure. Anyway we just drilled a couple of test holes and they were biting. We never got the shelter set up we had 30 fish in 90 minutes or so. Like people said, waxies are the way to go on a blue and red glow jig in 12-13 feet of water. This was after 9:00 What a blast.

      Hey Moose , sounds like some tough shooting as of late for you at those duckies . Just curious as to what choke you are using ?

      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
