      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 .

Lake City Area Fishing

Recommended Posts

joeltjen10

I'm heading to Lake City this weekend to take my mom & Fiance Fishing. My mom would like to catch a few panfish rather than just trolling for the walleyes. I usually do very well on Pepin with the Walleyes but just for a change of pace I was thinking about taking her to Lake Zumbro to try and catch some crappie and sunnies. Is there a map of the Lake Zumbro online anywhere? are there any limitations on boat size, I'm going to be launching a 18.5' crestliner. Does anyone have any tips or hotspots that I can find these fish for her.

thanks

Your boat will be fine in Lake Zumbro and I'd recommend launching at the Ponderosa ramp. It’s free and will accommodate your boat nicely.

For fishing, you should be able to catch numbers of white bass just about anywhere, but I’ve heard Ryan’s bay if chuck full of those buggers. For crappies and pannies, you might want to try suspending your baits over deeper water. The high banks are a good area to try.

See this thread for a map.

With all the rain yesterday & last night, the no wake may be enforced? Where is this posted - Olmsted County site?

how deep does it get? I typically would fish from 10-15 ft. Would you recommend some live bait or jigs & crankbaits? Any other areas near Lake City besides the river that I would be able to take a bigger boat on?

In several areas near the high banks, its 20-30 feet deep. Plastics or live bait would work. Waxies, small hunk of crawler, or even perhaps crappie minnows would work. I'd personally lean towards wax worms or plastics.

I just recieved an email that Lake Zumbro is now on "SLOW NO WAKE" status.

Lake Zumbro is back to Normal Operations in terms of its high water status.
