      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 .

Nope, there should be no problem, ice is at 16" to 20" depending on area.

There are fullsize, diesels, 4 doors trucks running allover.

And there was a F350 diesel, 4 doors, dually with a 18ft permanent. That's a 11,500lbs rig....

Just got back from Mazaska. Was all over the lake, drilled about 20 holes. Finally found fish suspended 10 feet off bottom. Very tough to catch though. Ended up with around 20 crappies(all C&R). Vex was lit up for about 2 hours.

BBully, you should have said you were on Mazaska, I have my permanent there, and was out most of the evening yesterday.

Anybody wants to stop and say hi, I have the only square, tan, retractable wheel, house on east center section of lake, approx 200ft from shore, all by myself.

Valv, I'll let you know when I'll be out next and meet you out there sometime. Got the permenent out yesterday and spent the night on the lake. Marked fish suspended 10-15 feet off bottom again yesterday. Very tough bite in the afternoon. Released maybe 6-10 crappies. A couple dif. groups of people stopped asking about the fishing and I was able to put them on fish. Both groups were able to pull up some crappies as well. Waxies and small jig or spoon and minnow tail worked best for me. No crappies on full minnow. Night bight was very dif. Pink glow demon with full minnow. Night bite was great. Between 7-9 pm picked up 13 crappies. These fish were very aggressive. Still was marking fish this am at 9:00 but packed up and left to get ready for Vikes game!!!

I have never fished mazaka before and would like to try it this weekend. Where is a good spot to start out at on the lake? Is there any spots that you have to watch out for when driving on it? I would like to try for crappies.

Thank You

For the most part the lake is pretty safe. There are a few places on the lake to fish crappies. There is three deep holes, 35', 50', and 36'. You will know where they are cause of the group of houses surounding each of these spots. Very crouded, so you may want to try the outer edges of these places. I should be out there either sat. or sun. or both. I drive a red chev. s-10 zr2. Stop by and say hi if ya see me out there. I am away from all of these crouds by myself.

      I'll also be up this weekend. Fishing Friday and Saturday and putting the boat away on Sunday. Where are people finding the eyes and what are they biting on? Jigs, rigs, slip bobers? I don't do led core or jigging raps. I'll be on Daisy Bay, so any place from Big to Frazer is in play. Thanks!

      I went hunting with river rat this morning. I got two drake woodies and Chris got one. Finn was being a pain in the butt and would not fetch Chris’s duck. Finn however fetched both of my ducks. Finn flushed a bunch of woodcocks on our walk out. Finn got muddy today

      I just purchased the Humminbird Autochart Pro to use wth my Humminbird 999. After going through the 'installation guide' and the 'get started guide' that's included in the Autochart PC program, I can't find what I need to do to get this on my model Humminbird. Anyone have experience? Thanks, Paul

      Did well this morning on big bay with gold spinners. 24-26 feet off the edge of a reef. Decided since they were biting we'd try the west end to see if we could catch some big fish. Put up a big zero out there. Guess they behave a bit different from end to end.  On a small reef out west had a guy pull up on us, throw a marker right on the fish and camp out right there. Kind of tough to fish spinners when someone does that. What is the etiquette on this lake when someone does that? Just fish where you want even if you run right up on them or in between them and the marker? I see the thousand dollar  depthfinder in the back of the boat, just mark a waypoint and keep the marker in the boat man. Really grinds my gears. Whoops...sorry for the rant   Never had that happen on the east end though
