      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 .

Fish....Welcome to FishingMinnesota.com! Hey, I have to ask. This Frontenac pond, is it really that good? I have been by there a million times, seen a million shacks out there, and have never even stopped to see what was happening.

Again, welcome aboard!

Thanks crappie tom i sure am glad i found this web site. The pond is pretty decent on first ice but once you get all them shacks out there things slow down quickly. The contest they have is pretty fun. The main thing i catch is northerns there is some sunnies but not really any size.

I fish the Frontenac Pond a few times each year. "fish or die" is right... pretty good northern fishing with tip-ups, and you'll even get a stray largemouth bass once in a while. But the panfish are small, although I did catch a big crappie on a small shiner one day.

The Frontenac Sportsman's Club ice fishing contest is Saturday, Feb. 12th. You won't want to miss it, it is a great time with TONS of prizes!

J.P.

Can you gain access to Frontenac by going around behind the gas station? Or how does a guy get out on the ice with a vehicle?

Dan,

Take co. rd 2 through frontnac and you will see the pond and where they drive on. I guess there still doing really well out there I heard some 15" crappies I didnt even know there was crappies in there maybe the guy got really lucky. I also heard this summer the dnr shocked the pond and they figure the state record bass is swimming in the pond that's gotta be pretty big. Good Luck fishin.

sorry about the late report. The ice was about 12 inches. I did drive on the lake with no problems. I did catch two nice northerns and missed two. One real nice one broke my tip up line. I also caught some little sunnies to keep me occupied in between the tip up. Fished tuesday from 11 til 230.

Thanks for your report jiggin pig!

Not a bad ratio either got two and missed two all in 3 1/2 hours. Way to go. I wonder what it was that broke your line? Oh well-he's still out there somewhere.

fish or die, winterse, and jiggin pig-

Would you guys mind letting us in on a few of your secrets? Northern fishing with tip ups, or on rod and reel? What area is generaly the most productive? I sure would like to come over and give it a shot sometime.

Thanks guys!

sorry for the late response, it has been a busy week with work and all. I will be at frontnac pond on sunday 01/09/05 at about 10am till when ever. as for tips. For the northern's i have been using a tip up with black braided line with a red hook and sinker. I put it about 4 feet down. I will say i do change the depth every once and a while if there is no action. I normally go to the north east side or the side that is closest to the river. I normally fish about 15 - 20 yards from shore. it works for me. I have been using shinners and suckers for bait. med-large. hope this works. but don't tell anyone this its a secret!!!
