      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 Whitefish Chain is a dependable bet for larger pike. Just locate some cabbage and set some large shiners up high this time of year.

Lincoln Lakes area is not a bad bet either (Alex and Fish Trap). I would not say you are going to hook into a wall mounter, but there are some good sized pike. If you hook into something over 32", chances are its a muskie. We have pulled some huge muskie out of both lakes during the summer. I released a 39" muskie this winter (not bad for a summer fish, but one hell of a good time pulling through an 8" hole) along with tons of pike. Make sure to check the pike slot size for Alex. It's posted at the boat access..

Was on Cross Lake on Monday, tipup fishing. We caught about 6-8 small to med-small (26" biggest) pike on suckers in about 18-23 FOW over weeds, on a sharp break. We had about another 10 flags that we missed... man, not sure how we missed that many, but we did. Didn't miss any the previous day on a different lake. FYI - we had more flags on rigs with a chartruese spinner or beads than anything else. Also lost a decent sized one when it cut my mono leader that was holding a chartruese and yellow jig, with small sucker on it.

A couple of our guides had a pike trip yesterday. Sounds like it was red hot. I know that they had to come in for more shiners about 11 am. A few lakes I would recommend are Edwards, Gull, or the Gull Chain. The whitefish chain is also an awesome pike lake. I know that they had fish up to 14# yesterday. Tip-ups and shiners were the ticket.
