      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 .

Forest Lake Ice surface Cleanup

Recommended Posts

Hey just wanted to put out a shout to all Fmr's that fished on the lake this winter and have some freetime Sunday afternoon. The Forest Lake Association is putting on an ice surface cleanup this Sunday. The meeting time is 1 p.m. at bayside park(the city boat launch) There will be a free BBQ at the Forest Laker following the cleanup. I am going to forego a trip up north to participate and hope that many of you will be able to attend. Anyone with a 4 wheeler and a trailer is very needed at this point. All volunteers need to have is a pair of gloves a work ethic and a god appetite! We have one dumpster donated, it would be nice if we could fill more and let people know how much this is needed on all area lakes this time of year. Questions? call 651-755-6400 Blake Roberts or 651-982-1277 Chris Hoyt. Blakes e-mail address is broberts@forestlakefloral.com Please don't edit this as it is a goodwill thing to clean up the lake surface for everyone elses enjoyment. I look foreward to meeting up with some other FMr's out on the lake this Sunday! Any other questions can be sent here to tunrevir in reply and I'll do my best to answer them for you. Thanks guys, it has been an awsome winter!

Hey tunrevir,

I have been thinking about doing something like this on more than just one lake. It would be nice if we could get a group together to go around to a couple area lakes, do one or two a day on the weekends. Concentrating on hitting the spots that the crowds build up on.

Sounds like there is going to be another event up chisago way. I didn't realize it but there is a forum for posting cleanups at the end of the site. I am also going to post over there. Thanks guys, all help would be appreciated! Lets keep the resource clean and usable for others in the future! I can't wait for the BBQ afterwards! MMMMMMMM!

Anyone else free Sunday afternoon? Four wheelers and trailers are needed but we will have transportation out there! Come on where else can you go and get free food for minimal work? Had a few interested parties earlier when I posted this. In all honesty, I would be sitting at home after church and watching Nascar but I also feel I need to help take care of the resource. If you want to help out the more hands the quicker it will go and the race will be on at the Laker afterwards. We can do this in three hours versus a whole day if we get enough people out! Thanks!

Cool, any help out there on any area lake is welcome! This one just happens to be a bit more organized at this point. Anything that anyone can do to pick up is appreciated! Thanks for the interest.

Was out ripping around on the snowmobile last thursday i believe it was and loaded the trunk of the sled up with some garbage, and also found a brand new Tip-up.

Cool!, I have found lures, rattle reels and all kinds of tackle during the cleanups! I even found a spoon I lost on an early ice foray and then found it stuck in the ice during a spring sweep!

Hey just wanted to say thank you for the guys that showed up today for the Lake cleanup! It was a big success and it went relatively quick with all of the help we had out there. Ole Matty, was there and I also met a few Lurkers(Mike and Greg) you know who you are! Thanks again for the efforts of all involved! If I didn't make it to say hello I apologize, look for the faded mickey mouse hat in a blue grey and that is likely me! Thanks again guys and gals, what a great event!

      Picked up some nice crappie and a couple eater walleyes on Allouez Bay the other day before the rains. Trolled crawlers with one light split shot and others with bottom bouncers. I was surprised at how big the crappie were

      ripped out some old boards that were well past their prime on my boat.  Any recomendations on what to replace them with?  They looked to be treated plywood but wondering if getting something different would work better.  Such as a piece of 1 x 12 pine and throwing a few coats of polyurethane on it as well?  The boards I am talking about are for the benches.   Also, replacing the seats in there as well.  Previous i had the the vinyl foam seats.  When shopping around i am seeing a lot of the molded plastics chairs.  Any preference out there for durability?  Vinyl rips but wondering if the molded crack or break?   Thanks for any feed back!

      The flocks of geese are now flying over my house in the morning and evening, but when this happens Finn gets all jacked up. Like right now he is nudging me and running pawing at the window. A few minutes earlier when the first gaggle few over I was going to change the laundry and Finn raced down and sat by gun safe  whining.  Fishing reports have been great for crappies on the area lakes. Walleyes are not biting as well in lakes but when the rum is clearer that is the place to be. Bears any no quota hunters this might be your year to get a bear around here.  Deer seem to every where drive carefull.  Seeing some ducks flying around.  I have seen a few grouse and pheasants.

      I've been by a time or two trying to figure out which place is yours.   I was out on wakemup last night too.   Got nothing, on crawlers.  Started out at merry go round, went to "picnic island" (little island east/south of taylors).  rigged along edge of those two humps in like 18-25 feet.   Musky guys were coming so I turned.  They turned too, chunking baits in the vicinity of my boat.   Then some guys in a pontoon pulled up and anchored in front of me  and threw out bobbers.   Fished a while longer, and it was getting sort of dark so went home.   Weird.  I've been on those humps a bunch of times this year, and suddenly I get company.   And, even though it is a pretty big area they gravitated to where I was.  I'll be out today too, so if you need help with supervision, let me know.    But I will drive by to check out the new construction.

      Been getting a few on the weed line, early am when there's a little breeze, since the surface temps started coming down. That was about this month's full moon, for me. A very slow troll, fishing vertically, & just a 1/16 oz. jig.
