      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 .

Lake Owasso

Mr. Pike1

Any reports from Owasso. I was planning on trying this body of water as it is close to home but due to the weather I hit an alternate lake for a few hours tonight. Any reports appreciated.

There's about 12" of ice on the Eastern end of Owasso (by the public access). Many cars on the ice, but near shore. I've got a truck so I'm waitin' a couple more weeks. Many of the permenant houses were pulled with the rain the other day so they wouldn't freeze in.

Heading out there tomorrow to see about some eyes'.

Have not heard much about Owasso yet this year.

How's the pike fishing in general during ice season on Owasso? I've heard that it supports a decent population of nice pike. Do you need to search the flats, or are the weedlines better? There certainly seems to be an abundance of forage in the form of miniscule perch and panfish, this info gleaned from my only personal experience on the lake.

Wonk, I don't know about ice fishing spots or habits, but I can verify there are some really nice pike in Owasso. We found them along the western shore on the steep drops in the summer, for what that's worth.

I can't speak for the fishing, but I live near the lake, and the traffic on the lake has been crazy! Trucks are now driving all over the lake, so I am assuming there is plenty of ice. smile.gif

Bj1, thank you for the report. My daughter who is 5 likes to go out on the ice with Dad but has a limited attention span. If I have an hour to kill I can bring by daughter the to catch a few 6"ers. I know late in the year I can take her to another little lake close to home were she can catch a gazillion 6" sunfish. You would think there might be a few bigger ones but maybe they are all stunted due to overpopulation and limited forage. I have also heard there can be a good walleye bite and some nice pike as well

Was out on Owasso yesterday off of the access on the East end by the beach, and caught 2 Red Lake sized crappies. One measured out at 12.5", and the other was 11". I've never caught more than a cold on that lake in the past for crappies, so it was a nice surprise.

Anyone have a good spot for catching larger pike on Owasso? All I ever seem to catch on that lake are axe handles...
