      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 .

St. Paul panfish lake??

Recommended Posts

climbmda

Hi all. I'm going to be in St. Paul for Xmas Eve ans Xmas. I'm thinking of getting out for a few hours on Friday morning before the Vikes game. I'd like to be close.

Anyone have any suggestions for a decent panfish bite over there. I'll be in the area of Como, and anthing within 20 minutes of there, or so, would be great.

I'm not looking for specific hotspot, just a lake with potential. I'll do my own hunting.

Thanks.

climbmda, Owasso has about 15 trillion crappies in it. I've never fished it early ice, but I know late ice the things will hit nearly anything dangled under the ice.

Lake Johanna in Arden Hills has some nice sunnies in it if you can find them.

Gervais has some decent sunnies and perch. Use bigger minnows to keep away from the small perch.

como has some pretty big crappies in it, but you have to get close to the aerator to get them. The crappies in owasso are all around 4", but people do catch some decent ones out of wabasso.

This is all new water to me. If anyone is interested in going out Friday morning, I'd love to link up for some fishing. Or if anyone had any tips they don't want to post, I can be emailed at climbmda71@aol.com.

Any ice reports on these lakes?

I was thinking of heading out to josephine friday morning for some eyes, then i might be going to turtle or owasso after that for some tip-up fishing at owasso or craps at turtle. Look for my car it is tan and has a FM sticker on the back. But all that depends on what time i am going to my uncles, if it is early i will just be fishing north center all day, propb with tip-ups next to the access, his house is the one right of the access

Bobb-O, let me know how you do on Island. I drive by this lake every single day on the way to and from work. I see the occassion boat and ice fisherman. Close to home for me and may be worth a shot if it holds nice crappie and eyes. Just post if you have any success or I may see you out there one day. I would have a black Dodge Dakota and a green Eskimo quick flip II

      Man you nailed it Kelly. Got out fishing was good. Was about -30*F then went to 14*F . A little after 8AM the Breaker Happened. Here is a pick of a guy to the North of us. We were on 16in of ice. First time I was ever on the ice when the breaker happened........bout crapped my pants.

      F.H., Fish deep and slow with lindys or jigs with minnows. Sometimes smaller minnows will work best at other times large suckers or shiners will get more hits. Cliff

      I'll venture a guess and say 1st weekend of December we'll have a good 4" to walk on.  Then it will continue to freeze to at least 12" before it gets snowed on

      I have the above motor that I use for duck hunting. When the temperature gets into the 30s (like this coming weekend), it can sometimes get stuck in either forward or reverse if it kills at low idle. In the 2nd picture, the throttle is open slightly. The curve part is attached to the shifter. It is in forward. If the motor dies and I close the throttle, the shifter can't be put into neutral (it needs to move up) because the it is blocked by the part above it. I need to take the top off and manually move the throttle closed (to the left) like the 1st picture. I think there is some grease that lubricates the throttle as it rotates under the flywheel. When cold, the grease is thick and sticks. Is there any lubricant I can spray up in the area that the throttle rotates? I'm hesitant to do so because of the electrical components in the area.

      Coming up this weekend with a friend of mine, even though the weather looks terrible. Any advice for how to catch them when mother nature brings the hammer down?  Highs in the mid 30's, lows in the low 20's.   On Friday I had a muskie in the upper 40s hit a 19 1/2" walleye.  As usual she let go at boatside, but it was fun while it lasted.
