      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 .

East metro pout lakes?

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if any one can point to an east metro Pout lake. I've never caught one but I would love to add it to my list.

I could be wrong, but I think Eelpout only live in bigger lakes. I dont think any in the metro are large enough.

Yep, your only gonna find them on the big bodies of water up north. Mille Lacs and Leech lake are your best bets.

Thanks guys I just thought depth might play a more significant role maybe something like Lake Elmo. Or the Croix and Miss. might hold a few?

Actually I'd say Lake of The Woods is the BEST Bet.

The Croix and Mississippi do contain a small population of Burbot. Apparently Lake Pepin used to have a large quantity, and commercial fishermen caught them regularly. Pollution of the river has pretty much put an end to the Burbot now in Pepin. I've caught juvenile Burbot near Marine on St. Croix near the mouth of a small creek, and heard of adults being caught in this area during open water.

It's going to be very tough to run into a Burbot around the metro. If you really want to catch one for your life-list, it's worth a trip up to Lake Superior and it's frozen tributaries, or a known Burbot producer like Leech or Mille Lacs. Good luck. ~hogsucker

You can get fresh water Cod, Burbot, Lawyers, Ling, EelPout, Slimers, Misi, whatever you want to call them in the Mississippi and just about any river that connects to the upper Mississippi. I even caught one out of Rice Creek years ago.

I've always got them toward evening, or after dark and always on live bait, while fishing walleyes. I have never gotten a big one out of the rivers, maybe a little bigger then a fiddler catfish.

If you are really intent on catching one, take the advice of others in this forum and take a day trip up to the northern part of Mille Lacs. Along with Eels, you might be able to get into some nice perch and if you go before tomorrow (Hee, hee) grin.gif maybe walleyes also.

This is crazy! The red river of the north is the only river I have ever heard of where people ever caught eel pout. I'm getting eel pout fever all of a sudden.
