      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 .

I kept 5 between 11-12 inches. The wind was blowing pretty good so I just drifted the lake and pickup a few every drift. Any where from 11 feet to 14 feet. The fish are usually scattered.Good luck and let me know how you did.

Well it was a b u t full day on the lake but that is all that I can say. We didn't have much luck 3 small crappies 2 sunnies 1 thern and had a few walleye bites. There were 7-10 other boats out 5 in the same area and we saw 3-4 crappies pulled in all morning. not alot of action!!! We left around noon.. used leeches, plastics, and minnows. all crappies caught on plastics, leeches got nibbled and bit off a few times and minnows not much action.... Jigged off the bottom used floats tried alot of presentations anywhere from 4-14 ft.

I was out there this evening and there was quit a crowd,craps seem to be hitting good from what I could see but I didn't have much luck as I stayed off to the side of the rest of the boats,one thing I would like to point out though is RESPECT as I didn't see a whole lot of it out,Guys arguing over fishing spots,boats pulling in on others tangling lines,now tell me is a few fish that important?let's have some courtesy for others as it's a time to enjoy ourselves!I'm new to the area and tonight was my first time on Ann.Is it like that alot out there?

I think it is like that in that area Knife/Ann/Fish. Typical selfish people who think that it is their fish and their lake. Nothing makes me as angry as those people. It goes both ways too. Some people don't want you within 100 yards of their boat and other people will work their way in to the middle of a group of boats.

On Saturday morning 5 boats cruised in and out of each other but everybody seemed friendly. We talked as other boats trolled by and they all gave pointers or updates as to what they caught or what they were fishing for.....but the fish were not biting hard either........I will leave that lake alone till winter then give it a shot again.........Good Luck and have fun!!!!

I shouldn't over generalize. But the few bad apples really make it so unpleasant.

Good luck in the winter I fished the lake many times and never did very well maybe we could get together and fish. I usually fish by myself because I work most weekends. Shoot me a email and I'll tell you the type of plastics I use. The time I was on the lake there where alot of boats and no problems with the boats Good luck everybody

      The public launch at The Landing on the west end stays open until the ice sets in, but they do pull the dock sometimes around the end of October / beginning of November.

      Just curious if people are finding fish moving into fall patterns yet or still finding them in more summer locations?  I've been finding good sized panfish in deeper water myself around more mid lake structure. Most of the lakes I've been on are still pretty green with algae and weeds.

      Captain Acorn, I use Gamagatu  octopus hooks. Size 4 for crawlers and size 2 for minnows. Red, black, chartreuse, and pink , mostly red and black. I use orange and green glow soft beads at times. (Worked today!) Cliff

For us the only thing that was working leadcore with cranks 18-24fow looks of eaters but not one over 18" couldn't get the digging raps rigs or jog and minnow to go but I'm sure it's not far off caught about half of mine on cranks when I was turning and didn't seem to matter weather the pole was on the inside or outside 2.2 2.4 was our speed flicker shads and deep runner raps #5 and 7. Cliff what style and size of hook do u use for your minnow rigs? Any beads used?

      This weekend near grand marais on thursday and Friday the no see ems were out. A few skeets but once it cooled down the no see ems were gone. Fished a lake that known for horrible bugs and it was not bad.

      We did well today from 1-4pm on an underwater point. Finally found some fish in a semi-sheltered area. Last few days have been tough to control the small light boat with all the wind. Most caught on pink jigs in 21-30ft.  Cliff I did try the circle hook lindy today with the big minnow and nailed the first bite I had. Next 2 bites grabbed it hard but dropped it. Work in progress!
