      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 .

The bite was great yesterday. Myself and another guy pulled 12 fish. 1-15" the rest were 17" to 19". If you can handle the weather you should catch fish. We were jigging with shiners in 14 to 17 ft. We fished from 2:30 to 6:30, bite was pretty steady during day with a flurry of activity at sundown.

If you can handle the weather the fishing has been really good. We have caught nice fish in as shallow as 4ft and as deep as 20 ft. The shallow bite has mainly been a night bite.

Jason or Beer Bat, were either of you out last night? I was out from about 6-8. Caught a lot of 12-13in fish. When you guys did so well were you catching these too? I did manage a couple keeper fish. I'm not complaining it's nice to see the little ones just a lot of dipping your hand in 40 some deg water.

Unfortunately, I'm done for the open water season. Boats are now stored away, so I was not out last night. We did get a lot of smaller fish, but weeding through produced some eaters.

Went out on Waska this afternoon, a fair number of boats, had to watch for some ice still left. My partner and I picked up 4 walleyes. Will continue until hard ice up. Lots of divers on the lake.

I was surprised how the lake refroze last nite. Forget about the starbuck marina for 06, perhaps can get boat in by Waters Edge, we are putting in at Glenwood beach, but even today at noon it is a maybe deal.

Sunday afternoon the DNR access was frozen up so we tried the beach access, but it was too shallow for my boat with a bunk trailer. I wouldn't try getting in unless you have a small boat with a roller trailer. If we get a little wind with this warmer weather the DNR access should open back up though.

Fished Waska this afternoon great day. Me and a buddy put 9 fish in the boat, rookied up on about 7 other bites. Fish ran 16" to 23", shiners and jigs in 17 to 20 feet,we were the only boat on the lake, hopefully weather holds out this week so I can do it again this weekend.

About one more year and you will no longer have to consider yourself a rookie.Most of catch enough during the summer when their harder to catch,so we can go hunting in the fall instead of fishing.JUST KIDDING. give a call you've got my number.

      Dang Curt, did you take my suggestion on a drone?  Great report.

      Well, I have to pay for registration on my boat trailer to run it on the road, and the boat to run it on the lake, why shouldn't wheel houses?  I guess I don't feel bad for the wheel house guys.

      No not yesterday. 2 weeks ago when we had that first cold spell I went out on Baxter, Blue and Long and checked the ice. They were locked up but only had 1-2" inches so didn't venture out too far. Baxter probably was walkable but had open water on the back end so figured I stay off. Last Sunday I went and checked them out after that warm rainy week we had and they had open water, so yesterday I skipped checking them and went farther north. But I did notice most lakes were locked up on the drive up there. Cant wait for the local lakes to get some decent ice!

      Wondering if big sandy is clear enough to spear fish when the ice comes on? Never done it before and would like to give it a try
    • monstermoose78
      Bryan did you check any lakes around me?
    • Bryan P
      Had to scratch the ice fishing itch, so I drove up north to the Mille Lacs lake area and found a smaller lake with 4-5" of ice. Punch a few holes and found some crappies and sunnies. Nothing big but was fun time and a great way to start my ice seaso n! Bring on the ice!  Check out the video: https://youtu.be/BTTv_G07PB8

      Hey, I resemble that remark!!   Plus my wife only went fishing with me once the whole time that we have been married and she brought a book! I got her trained in right away. Sorry about your training problem!
