      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 .

Hey guys, looking to take a friend out this weekend and would like to find a few sunnies we can take home and have a meal with. Anybody have ideas west of the cities where I can get a few bigger sunnies? Don't need exact spots, just some ideas. Thanks in advance.

I would say Waconia, there has been a pretty consistent evening bite out there. Went out there last night and hammered the sunfish from about 4:45-5:15 then a steady bite until we left at 7 with a few crappies mixed in.

Minnetonka, western bays. You can't go wrong with Halsteads any time of year.

Is Parley that little lake east of Waconia? I think I have fished there in the past and had decent luck. There is pretty much one deep hole where most people fish, right?

Baggerpimp.

Parley is just east of waconia.

Here's a map

Most of the houses should be on the eastern side, avoid fishing on the north side, as the ice can be suspect and its real shallow.

Most of the houses should be on crappie/eye spots. Move a little shallower (south) from them and you should catch a few more sunnies. The weedline is pretty shallow in this lake tapering into sand/gravel. Good luck.

Correct on the location, and on the structure in the lake. I was out about a week ago during the very cold snap, so mobility was limited, but I am guessing with a little moving around you might have better luck.

Great info guys, much appreciated. I will think about going up to Parley or maybe even try the west side of Independence. Anybody fish out there at all lately for sunnies?

As far as Halsteads goes, if you eyeball Kings Point and the point to the south of it, and draw a line connecting them, there is a weedline there that will produce pannies.

Or, punch holes north of the grass island in 10-20 FOW. Good luck.

Just to mix it up Phelps or Goose island on Tonka are still going pretty good. Crappies deeper say 25ft sunnies more like 15ft. And the sunnies will bite way after dark. Look for the clusters of perms. You'll catch more if you set up 20yds away or more than right in the perms. Drill some holes until you mark fish and go to it.

      I'll also be up this weekend. Fishing Friday and Saturday and putting the boat away on Sunday. Where are people finding the eyes and what are they biting on? Jigs, rigs, slip bobers? I don't do led core or jigging raps. I'll be on Daisy Bay, so any place from Big to Frazer is in play. Thanks!

      Got two drake woodies took some advice from some great shooters and I only shot like 5 shells. Finn retrieved my ducks but got muddy so he got a bath.

      I went hunting with river rat this morning. I got two drake woodies and Chris got one. Finn was being a pain in the butt and would not fetch Chris’s duck. Finn however fetched both of my ducks. Finn flushed a bunch of woodcocks on our walk out. Finn got muddy today

      I just purchased the Humminbird Autochart Pro to use wth my Humminbird 999. After going through the 'installation guide' and the 'get started guide' that's included in the Autochart PC program, I can't find what I need to do to get this on my model Humminbird. Anyone have experience? Thanks, Paul

      Did well this morning on big bay with gold spinners. 24-26 feet off the edge of a reef. Decided since they were biting we'd try the west end to see if we could catch some big fish. Put up a big zero out there. Guess they behave a bit different from end to end.  On a small reef out west had a guy pull up on us, throw a marker right on the fish and camp out right there. Kind of tough to fish spinners when someone does that. What is the etiquette on this lake when someone does that? Just fish where you want even if you run right up on them or in between them and the marker? I see the thousand dollar  depthfinder in the back of the boat, just mark a waypoint and keep the marker in the boat man. Really grinds my gears. Whoops...sorry for the rant   Never had that happen on the east end though
