      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 .

Does anyone know anything about this lake at all? Looking at the DNR website, seems like it might be decent.

Any info would be greatly appreciated. Probably won't fish it until open water season.

Thanks

Haven't fished Shields in a few years. When I did walleyes towards the island where it drops into about 20 feet of water. Great for panfish and is also a decent bass lake. Many houses get put out there in the winter.

beef. i only fish the lake in the sumer, but from what littel the guys have said for ice fishing; northern, check out the bay to the nw. you have shallows leading into deep water , then on to a flat towards the center of the lake.for walleye, work around heron island to the east. get yourself a map to find some of the break lines, flats as places to start.

beef. in the sumer, pay attention to the wind. if you have a strong southerly wind shields can really get rocking ! i then go accross the road to mazaska. my usual routine for panfish is to check out the breaks, flats for active fish. you will mark lots of fish, but finding the active ones takes some looking at times. for bass and northern, we look to the weeds or the end of a weed lines next to deep water. on shields in the open water we usually try the NW bay, maybe behind heron island or around the south shore. we have caught bass along the shore by the boat ramp also. the panfish maybe found on the flats or over deep water. mazaska ; kind of the same things. we have caught bass and northerns in the south bay; along the north /NW weeds, and straight across from the boat ramp. we have done well at times on roberds for bass and panfish. for walleye i'm not much help. del

      Got some grouse and saw some nice coveys. The biggest was 6 birds but found couple groups of 5. That is always fun.

      we mainly jigged fatheads in front of their mouths. 2 weeks ago also and tried a few different times over 3 days this trip. water is still crazy low so I don't think many boats will be using access. Also tried a couple different plastics and some gulp. Probably ready to go crazy up there soon.  Last year at this time it was really good. Might get there once more before ice time but not sure.

      Been thinking about breaking out the Jiggin Raps, might have to give that a shot. It's been too crowded out there this weekend with MEA going on.

      Sounds good! May an oversized deer with obscenely large antlers find its way to you!

      Well the weather was pretty crappy but the fish were biting...Had to sort through but kept some for dinner. Caught a variety today, eyes,jumbos,crappie and a few smallies... rigging on or next to rocks worked best for us.

      hummm, hadn't heard a thing?

      Good luck. Maybe we will see you Friday. I will let you know how things are looking by us as the weekend goes by.

      I still hope it's double!  I just went over the map with my brother and talked about our options.  We have enough places to go for sure.  It's always fun planning and talking about past hunts. I put out the question to the other two guys about staying in camp vs the house.  We'll see what they decide.  I hauled our "cabin" home from Ely today so we should have plenty of room if they wanna camp.
