      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 .

Camped on Big Lake Sept. 29 - Oct. 2. Campsite was great except the surrounding area was too shallow to fish. Caught only four walleyes ranging from 12 - 16 inches in 17-18 feet of water, on orange jigs and minnows in the evening. Day bite was uneventful except for a large northern smacking and missing a spoon. No Smallmouth. The water temp was 54 degress. Marked a fair number of fish but could not get them to bite. When they did bite it was quite aggressive. Could the lake have just turned over? Also, one of our boats failed to start - never had a problem previously but I suppose the 12 year boat was due. The other boat became crowded with four guys and a dog, but we managed.

At least we had good food, friends, and weather. Even got a grouse near the Echo trail on the way back. Beautiful lake and I would go again - the fishing can only get better! smirk.gif

FishBrawler: thanks for the report. It is a beautiful lake and my wife and I still look forward to giving Big Lake a shot on Friday.

Do you mind sharing what flavor minnows you used?

Spent most of the morning and part of the afternoon on Fri.

Oct. 6 on Big Lake. No fish, but still had a great time. It was very windy and my 14 ft puddle jumper was thrown around pretty good at times. Spent the rest of the weekend enjoying the Ely area driving around, hiking, and taking pictures. Can't wait to get back to God's country again. grin.gif

Tell me about it monstermoose. I think I saw more grouse this weekend than the rest of my life put together. It was a romantic getaway weekend with my wife so there was no hunting for me. I've only grouse hunted a few times and still have not gotten one. Of course I had numerous grouse standing 10 yards away from me when I was only armed with a camera. Hope to get up there again this fall to grouse hunt. grin.gif

      I recently purchased a humminbird 688ci hd ice locator and it has GPS and the option for lake master chip. I'm going to drive to Cabela's to buy a chip  and was wondering the difference between the Lake Master Minnesota and the Minnesota Plus. Anyone have any experience with these and are they worth the money. Thanks.

      I haven’t checked backwaters since last weekend, but I checked the small lake this morning and it has just under 2 inches of ice.  McNally’s has been hit pretty hard for the last 2 weeks.

      You start posting where the crappies are on the lake now.  We'll start talking!

      Even when the lake trail is marked the oak narrows are sketchey and I avoid it when I can. There can be 24" here and 1/4" there. That being said... There is ice but that's the worst spot on the lake

      What a difference a few years makes on the volume of posts on this site.  The early 2000’s was filled with numerous posts during the Crappie Boom by colorful characters like Kelly P, Jiggle Stick, the Gamblers and so many others.  Clamping, lead suits, IBOTS, Crappie Highway, and so many other memories.  Some of those memory makers are no longer with us R.I.P.  I don’t come on this site that often anymore but still enjoy Kelly’s wisdom and knowledge concerning the lake and topics related to it.  I try to keep up on happenings through the URL Association newsletter but I miss the old days.  I must be getting old.
