      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 .

Bass Fishing has been great. There was a bass fishing tourney on Saturday on Fish Hook Lake. The first place team had a five fish limit, weighing 20+ lbs. The wind was tuff that day, but still lots of fish.

Sounds good! I'll be up on Eagle, Island and Potato this weekend. I'm guessing the best bite for LM will be deep, can anyone confirm that?

I've just added a pictire with my son and I. We caught these bass in about two hours. We brought them back to shore for a picture and then let them go. Caught them in 10feet of water, on jig worm.

Jig worm fished on the weed edge is a very effectivve way of catch lots of bass on the hook, it is also the way i caught my largest fish hook largemouth at just over 21" IN POST COLD FRONT conditions. the 4" gulp turtle back worm is a very good choice in both junebug and black. also a very good way to catch pressured walleyes.

Hey Jonah,

hows it going I was just wondering if you ever get out throwing some topwater for some lm bass. I know its not like seeing that big explosion from a muskie but it is still a very good time. I get my bro archery1 out there from time to time. If you ever want to go out maybe you can give me and my bro some pointers on catching some eyes on Potato, before you go back to school. I will stop in to Northern here next weekend if you are working, shoot the (Contact Us Please) alittle bit.

Just got back from God's country yesterday. I fished mostly on Eagle because the water was so low that I could barely get my boat through the channels. I've never seen it that low.

The bass and crappie fishing was very slow. I tried everything and every depth. It didn't help that a high pressure system moved through Friday night.

The northerns bit good on Monday.

We never tried for walleyes because I had heard that bite was even worse.

Hopefully things will improve by Labor Day wknd.

I have tried fishing eagle before with no luck, what are you using? I have very good luck on Potato, I use a scum frog in the pads and reeds and that usually produces very well. Lately I have been getting them right on the pad or reed line. I will be up this weekend I will let you know how the bass fishin goes.

      Haven't been out looking but things have been froze up for awhile. Heard there was some out on Bowstring last week.

      Wife you dummy  I know the problem first hand !!
    • MJ1657
      It's that time of year. Cone on up and see if you can claim the Nord Lord. Spearing in the Third River Flowage in Winnie. Pizza party Friday night in the lodge potluck in the ice Saturday at noon.   Any questions hollar.

      Saw something interesting on forest lake this morning...lake was completely locked up, yet someone had launched their boat and was trudging through the ice! That’s dedication! Anyone have any ice updates to report?
    • leech~~
      2 Trout stamps.  Did I miss something and need to go back and get another?

      The 200 foot rule gets me a little but it has to be defined somehow what is occupied and what isn’t.   So for a wheelhouse we get to buy tabs to have on the road and a sticker to have it on the ice and go away for a little while.  Seems pretty close to double taxation since any LE can find out who the owner is from the current plate. Plus the spear shack that I might want to keep up over the weekend.  2 tags plus license. Combination sports license 2 trout stamps Waterfowl stamps Pheasant stamp  Turkey license (stamp now included) Deer license for all seasons   The bucket is getting heavy with all the drops in it.

      Really no different than using your boat.  $14,000 fish house and $14.33/year is going to kill you?? What gets me is at the lake we are at in the summer, mostly out of state people in the campground and all of their boats, never leave that lake and they are all licensed out of state and not in MN.  That is a chunk of money the state does not see.
    • Fishing Frenzy
      Great news to hear! Hopefully it will make enough tonight and hope it isn't going to get as warm as they say. Fingers crossed!

      Was hoping to come up with a 1/2 ton and a 16ft wheel house Dec. 1st.  Any thoughts if the ice will be think enough to go out of Hillmens?

      Took a drive around Lake Osakis earlier. It appears the cold and calm winds we had last night made a lot of ice. From what I could tell it appeared the lake was locked up except there was a small open area in Manthey's Bay that had a couple trumpeter swans swimming around and another small area in front of Holiday Resort that had some ducks swimming around. The rest was all ice, thin ice. Don't know if it will hold up over the next 5 days. High of 38 tomorrow, 46 and showers on Friday with high winds, 36 Saturday, 44 Sunday and 44 Monday. The lows over night aren't going to dip very low. If it was a few inches thick I wouldn't be to concerned, but as thin as it is, could be bad.
