      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 .

Looking to hit Fish Lake on Friday afternoon for some panfish action. Any reports to share on recent activity and ice conditions would be appreciated.

According to the DNR recreation compass it's SW of Parkers Prairie just south of 235. Heard some good things about it from friends who have fished it in the past.

It got hit hard this ice season, and when the panfish were "going", they went home in buckets. Sad to see a quality fish fishery get fished that hard. Many will argue that it didn't get fished that hard, but i think it did. I was there twice, and found nice bluegill, small crappies. it's one of those lakes where the fish can be anywhere. Just pick a place to start and go from there. Good luck, Brent

That sucks to hear mad.gif. There are lakes around Delano that have suffered the same fate. Thanks for the update, I may still give it a shot and then lake hop if not terribly successful (from a sportsman's point of successful).

I think Brent is right. Early in the season I fished it quite a bit and the sunnies were very nice. There were a ton of houses on there and a whole bunch of fish went home.

Better than 10 years back when it winter killed so often. Now with the areator the panfish just exploded with all the fertility in Fish. Lots of mossy gunk floating around in summer. I've been out there a couple times this year and there wasn't that many more people than other years, maybe I missed the big push? I still caught nice fish the last time I was out on Fish but the sunnies and crappies are really poppin on most lakes so just get out and enjoy it.

I'm from Parkers and yes there were many many sunnies and crappies taken out of Fish this winter. It's one of those deals that when the fish are biting they get hit hard and are over fished. There was one person that was running around trying to give fish away he was catching so many, what a shame, it'll be a bunch of years before it puts out like that again.

I contacted the DNR about getting the limits changed or at least a slot on Fish and Adley, they said as long as our Sportsmen Club were putting aerators in the lake they wouldn't do anything.

Adley was putting out nice bluegill last winter, but they got hit hard and now it's just average size fish you'll catch.
