      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 .

I'm heading to URL this Friday, and by the looks/ sounds of the forecast I'm frankly finding it hard to stay pumped up. Just wondering if anybody has fished there in that cold of temps that are being forecasted, and what the effect, if any, it had on your outcome. Thanks!!

I was up there two sundays ago after the cold front/snowfall came through, and we only caught two craps. We did however catch a number of good sized wallys that didn't care what it was like the day b 4. In the past, I have noticed a trend with the weather up there just like any other lake, its a special lake, but the fish are going to act like any other fish when a cold front moves through and the wind switches! Good luck if you go and let us know what happens. Donk out cool.gif

Yeah, that's what I'm afraid of. It's a long ways to go to be let down by the (Contact US Regarding This Word) weather! That major of a cold front will probably shut them down for a bit.

The only positive I can see about these temps this weekend it that the front is supposed to move through Thursday sometime and hang around 4-5 days.

I am hoping by Saturday that the fish will adjust and start biting again. confused.gif

Down size, slow and on the bottom fellas!

One of the best bites I ever had was the 3rd day into -30 degree weather. The fishing was insane, it was the 1st trip for a friend of mine and he has not had as good of fishing as that in his subsequent trips there. We literally caught our 30 crappies in 20 minutes. This was 5 years ago when the limit was higher. We actually stopped at 29 and caught and released #30 at least 50 times over the next 2 hours. Then we threw #30 on top and headed home. Funny thing is I don't recall if it got cold or not in the portable that night.... cool.gif

Good luck!

Ken

I hear you. We're going up Thur and Fri and I'm finding it tough to stay excited. Every year that I go up, a cold front moves in and they shut down.

grrrrrrrrrrr

      I used to have many fields but some guides came in and pay for the fields. I am down to 3 farms but they don't have any small grains this year. So I am going to take the early season off. As I know the geese will use some ponds to rest and I have access to them so I will wait until the regular season to pick off a few geese.

      That's what I planned on doing while I bow hunted but wasn't sure since I got one in spring if I could get another. Thanks

      I was marking various things, but I didn't note a correlation between marking something and catching the walleye.  Also was catching smallies on the same reefs, although maybe at a little different depth.   In fact I was surprised when the walleye hit.  Likewise the other one the next evening.

      Eden prairie purgatory lake is full of carp. You can see them from the dock or the bridge.

          Orvis has some awesome tutorials on their web sites. They teach at whatever level you are in flyfishing. I've gone there many times. They've also got an awesome app with fishing reports including wwater conditions, fly selection and hw to fish it.       Check them out and good fishing.

      I didn't fish any walleye this weekend- only bass. I would fish Friday and Saturday mornings from 530-830 and caught half a dozen largies in the 3-4lb range on a spinner bait. I just got my Garmin fish finder with sideview which will hopefully help me better locate the walleyes. Del, were you marking fish as you'd go over them?

      Latest Landing gossip...... First hearing in trial was july 25th.   Judge took motions under advisement. In the mean time, since none of the locals would work there, they imported a bunch of people on H2b visas as seasonal workers and put them up in a little house in Cook.  Charging them $285 per month.  Like 20 people in the house.   Now many have quit and found other jobs, and some also found other places to live.   They have to hang on since they need to wait until their scheduled airplane tickets.. which they also had to pay for.   That's the news from the Laundromat.... Believe it or so what.
