      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 .

The word got out about 6 years ago that the trout were biting on Lac Lavon during the winter. They were fished very hard for a couple of years, with a lot of catch and grease. The pike do eat a lot of them too. I caught one about 10 years ago that was a good 24". Released it.

I've never ice fished the lake but I have carried a boat in there. There are some huge pike in that lake. Nice bass too.

Yeah, two years ago I read the whole trout thing too, so during the spring I went in the park parking lot and dragged my boat down the embankment. Then went back for my battery. Then went back for my trolling motor. Then went back for my rods and gear. By the time I put in, I was expecting a boat load of trout for all the work, but no luck. Later towards dark (around 7:30), I noticed a pike follow in one of my spinners. I took that one off and put on a MEPPS #5 AGLIA bucktail spinner, for the next 40-50 minutes I must have caught 20 pike and not a one was under 28". Two were about 35-36". Nice pike in there, but hard to believe there'd be any trout left.

Used to fish it 10 yrs ago and there was a lot of trout then as well as some huge crappies. We would throw spinnerbaits along the shoreline for bass and pike and occasionally pull in Crappies.

One time ice fishing I caught 4 20" trout. That feat was never replicated. Wasn't there a park you could access on the SE corner of the lake?
