      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 .

They said yesterday it will be to the north of the landing, near the bar. It sounded like they are already starting to mark the circle area off, and they will set up their stand in the middle. They are not going to predrill holes this year, as many people bring their fish houses and it doesn't line up; but they will be happy to drill holes for those who need them, just let them know when you hit the ice. Also, they bought a 4000 watt generator instead of a 2000 watt.

Good luck to everyone. A little bit of snow will make for a fun drive home...

Alright, who won something this year? No quilt for you, so what was your prize this year Woodman, or did Tiff win something? Kupcho, another auger?? The other half registered a couple of walleye, but no luck on the prizes in our household. Heard there were about 30 walleye, 10 pike and a ton of perch caught. I asked for info after the contest as to what all was caught, so anxious to see that. Hope you guys did well, and had safe travels in the snow!

I caught a Minnow! Saw lots of fish but they were lock jaw during the contest. Buddies next to me caught 5 perch, but no winners. Had a nice eye come in and smell and then leave. Also saw a nice Gill, but could not talk it into bitting! Fun day, and great to fish it again. Tiff wanted to see the Woodman run for the third year in a row, but I had to retire the boots and sit on my duff! grin.gif

I had to leave my house there due to the roads. Almost hit the ditch on the way up, so I will be up Monday after work to put a new license on it and catch some perch with the kids!

Great to see all the people. I don't understand how they did the drawings for the different divisions. I guess it would have helped if I sould have caught something and actually went up to the tent!

Sorry no PRETTY QUILT this year! crazy.gif

Fun day today fishing on Bemidji managed some eye's and lots of nice perch!

I caught 2 perch and won the big goose egg. Fishing on Saturday morning was excellent. Caught a lot of fish. After catching close to our limits of perch we headed back to blackduck and dropped off the fish. It was interesting going into traffic on our way off the lake at 12. There was alot of vehicles lined up to get on the lake. I felt like a salmon swimming up stream. The turnout was excellent. Even though no prizes were won by us, it was still fun.

Good luck everyone, enjoy the snow.

fished out of the house tonight with the kids and guess what we caught. Nice 17 inch eye's. Took some pics and kissed them good bye until spring time! grin.gif

No perch out of our house but the neighbor managed to get one! The snow was not too bad, just got stuck once because I was making a loop and hit a big drift behind the house. Rocked it loose and got to the house and shoveled a parking spot and a walk way. Had to put on the new license, since it will be there until spring break!

      1st time ever I've seen zebra mussels in ottertail on west side   this SUCKS!!!!   had a red solo cup in the water... apparently they love RED.     at least 5 of them    it sucks

      From someone who grew up as a back reeling aficionado, I've learned to appreciate a quality drag on a reel.  It's the one thing I'll gladly pay for. Modern drag systems are so much better than they used to be.  Not taking advantage of them is leaving a lot of the value of a quality reel on the table.  Unused and wasted. So, is that the kind of opinion you were looking for?

      They are already established in OT.  Pulled docks at my sisters place with about 75% covered in zebes.  Wear shoes when your in the water.

      I noticed this spring that the higher end Shimano Stradic and others have eliminated the ability to back reel (no reverse) which I believe is a huge mistake, I don't like it!    any others have comments?

      Been out chasing crappies again in the DL area..been a while...finding some nice ones in mouth of a river...pic of a couple

      Went up north grouse hunting it was fun. I must say having a dog makes it better.  This weekend is duck opener and I am jacked up for it. 
    • SkunkedAgain
      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
