      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 .

Well the time has come for me to finally have 1 full week of of work. Worked 8 years and this is my 2nd full week off. So i and another couple are paking up the kids and rods and going to the cabin on Eagle Lake that we rented. Any idea on what to expect for fishing?? Anyone been on this lake before. Targeting of course Walleyes...put panfish are on my mind for a shorelunch too. Any suggestions would be great..thank you!

Nice clear lake. Not a whole lot of varied structure, but there is some. Due to its small size, you should be able to chase down some gills in short order.

For panfish - treat it like any other local lake. This time of year, try and find some cabbage and fish off the edges.

Walleyes - I have no clue this time of year. I would start working some of the breaks, and maybe pull some cranks after dark.

One of only a few lakes in the world that has freshwater coral....

Little factoid of the day. smile.gif

Yep! Very popular with scuba divers. The coral beds are protected with underwater fencing.

I never knew that about Eagle....how deep are these coral beds?? i am no diver but since the water is so clear if they are shallow enough, can they be viewed from the boat?

IIRC, they are in 30 feet or more.

I fished Eagle lake for a week (vacation) and managed one walleye, very slow. The fish was decent size 18" but was a bit on the skinny side. It looked like it had been starving itself due to the weather? Decided to release it and hope it gains some weight. About the coral, does anyone know where it's located? I have a camera and would like to see it. I never knew it was fenced in.

Mid lake somewhere. Not quite sure myself. Perhaps some local divers will chime in?

In the middle at approx 42-44 ft. You cant see it from a boat and depending onthe amount of sunlight, its hard to see when your right on top of it.
