      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 .

Indy water

has the water started to clear up on independence at all? havent been out there in over a week in my permanent. Once the water turned over about 2 weeks ago the bite kind of shut down for me. Also anyone else here anything about a sewage spill from baker park in the summer. Heard about it from the guy at the bait shop and one of my neighbors in the ice city but he said it happens all the time. (not real happy i've eaten about 30 crappies out of there this year but to late for that now i guess)

Thanks

As long as the sewage spill is not large and continuous, the lake, like almost all lakes, is capable of degrading/eliminating wastes like this in a "short" period of time (~a week or month). Like all outside fertile inputs though, it contributes to the overall decline in water quality.

what worrys me is that supposedly there was a break in the sewage line that was running into indy for 3 weeks before they noticed. Not sure I believe it or not but never have seen the water this green/brown with huge green pieces of algae in it for the 5 years i've been ice fishing it so who knows.

The huge green pieces of algae have shown up for at least the past couple of years out there. If not longer. I have heard many ideas as to what it is from. Some say it is once the weeds finally die, like this year it happened once the ice was thick enough and we got some snow. I don't know why it happens.

As far as the sewage spill, I know this has happened before out there. Not sure if what you heard is refering to that time or if it happened again. But I still eat fish out of there and they tast like... fish.

On a different note, have you been getting fish out there lately. I fish there every weekend and have been concentrating on Walleye. They have slowed for us considerably and it's time to move to a crappie hole. Any suggestions?

have fished crappies all winter. I've been on the outside of the major city. Did really well until a couple weeks ago when the water clouded up. Bite changed from dusk/night into a day bite and i have a hard time getting out there during the day usually. Was thinking about moving to a walleye spot but sounding like a bad idea now.

Walleye bite has died for me as well ( I pull all nighters out there). I was going to either move to look for crappies or move to a different lake.

I tried it Independence last week, hit 4 areas of the lake, couldn't mark any fish on the flasher. So far, it's the cloudiest, greenest lake I found and if you use very light tackle it seemed to take a while to get the lure down because of all the green algae. Everyone else out there was moving trying different spots, so I don't think much was biting.

I gave up and moved onto another lake.

I caught 1 11" perch out there and that was the extent of it. I didn't realizee the water had gotten so bad, but I don't have a camera and that lake is usually pretty dirty anyway.

I noticed that the lake is always green. I think the greeness of the lake has to do with the fertilizers being used in the shores from the lake front property owners. Too much phosphorus makes crazy algae bloom.

I will also confirm that the walleye bite slowed down consideribly. Moved shack off today.
