      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 .

Yes I am. Zachary Paul Wells was born Sunday 1:06 pm December 1. He is 8 lbs 13 oz 21 1/2 inches long and perfect. Talk about a rush. Here is a difficult transition to fishing. Have you been out? Maybe we can plan an outing? I really have to emphasize planning now, but with a good heads up I could probably drill some holes and drown some minnows.

Congratulations!
Wow! Big healthy guy! I like the name too. Maybe Robert C, you, and myself can get out sometime before Christmas. You pick a lake/backwater and a time and we'll see if it works. Get sleep when you can and enjoy!

I fished elk last year a few times with little success. I managed 1 18 inch walleye in two trips. The DNR sight shows good numbers of fish but I must not know the lake well enough. I also fishd elk in the summer and fall by boat and was skunked. I have caught some nice bluegills on Blue and some northerns. I am game for anything. Have you ever fished martin? Martin has treated me a lot like elk. I graph fish but have little success. Have you ever fished julia/briggs? My brother generally does ok on those lakes. Plenty of time to figure out where to go. Just thought I would throw out some thoughts. Have you heard from Robertc? I think he would fish in a barrel if that was the only option.

If I didn't know for a fact that the barrel was empty - I'd fish it.
I'm good for 21st for a 1/2 day or so. My Mom & niece fly in from Vermont afternoon of the 22nd, so 22nd is out, and I'll need to be home at a reasonable hour 21st, so I can make my house look like nobody lives there 8 days a week before my Mom shows up. I'm game for Friday night, too, if that's an option.

Glad Zach is a great baby.

I did fish Martin twice last year and caught a few small walleyes and a nice size crappie ice fishing. Open water I got skunked. I'd be willing to try Martin again. I think the place to go is on the NE end straight out from where the river runs out. I'd also try Blue. I thought we should make it close for you so in case you got to get home quick you can... My baby is yelling got to go. Later.

      Well, I have to pay for registration on my boat trailer to run it on the road, and the boat to run it on the lake, why shouldn't wheel houses?  I guess I don't feel bad for the wheel house guys.

      No not yesterday. 2 weeks ago when we had that first cold spell I went out on Baxter, Blue and Long and checked the ice. They were locked up but only had 1-2" inches so didn't venture out too far. Baxter probably was walkable but had open water on the back end so figured I stay off. Last Sunday I went and checked them out after that warm rainy week we had and they had open water, so yesterday I skipped checking them and went farther north. But I did notice most lakes were locked up on the drive up there. Cant wait for the local lakes to get some decent ice!

      Wondering if big sandy is clear enough to spear fish when the ice comes on? Never done it before and would like to give it a try
    • monstermoose78
      Bryan did you check any lakes around me?
    • Bryan P
      Had to scratch the ice fishing itch, so I drove up north to the Mille Lacs lake area and found a smaller lake with 4-5" of ice. Punch a few holes and found some crappies and sunnies. Nothing big but was fun time and a great way to start my ice seaso n! Bring on the ice!  Check out the video: https://youtu.be/BTTv_G07PB8

      Hey, I resemble that remark!!   Plus my wife only went fishing with me once the whole time that we have been married and she brought a book! I got her trained in right away. Sorry about your training problem!
    • leech~~
      Ok but with all those Trout. Bring a tow rope as I may be stuck in the slush!
