      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 .

Its been a good year on hard water, but its going to be ending very soon! With the 10 day forcast as it is, my boat will be coming out of storage this weekend. Time to check it over, and get it ready for pushing ice chunks around the lake. I cant wait! Im guessing in 2 weeks I will be on the water in my boat. Look out crappies! Here I come!!

I brought the boat home last week and am already getting it ready. By the end of the week I will maybe be on the river for some eye action. smile.gif Catfish are not far behind.

Yes Indeed, trying to patiently wait the melt, although this is a great time to go out and prepare for the upcoming soft water. Get organized, if there is any such thing. Keep checking regional posts on FM for the upcoming trips, oh I dont know if I can hold out much longer, might have to do the river thing this spring. Anyone interested? Usually have room for one or two as I tend to fish alone alot. Also has anyone been down to Red Wing from this area yet, curious as to what your thoughts were? Too early? This is also that time to start stocking up on the tackle. Come May 3rd im off to Iowa, lol never thought I would actually tell people that I am going to Iowa to go fishing but oh well it's their opener, that way I get to hit up two openers back to back, Come on Sun and warmth

It's never to early for Red Wing. With the high water, the pitching bite to timber and rip-rap should be taking off.

Past years I have seen guys fishing the stream just outside of Morristown, just off Hwy 60. Have been told the crappies run in the spring there but never fished it myself.

I agree with the end of the year but am going to try to get out once or twice more. With that said, I am already changing oil, mounting a new sonar/gps, and dusting off the downriggers for a trip to Millwaukee for some diving and maybe a little coho fishing, if the weather cooperates. I am just not looking to filling up the boat at $2.42 a gallon for gas and $2.60 a gallon for diesel.

I really never appreciated Iowa fishing until I moved up here (after living in Iowa for 20 years). Don't get me wrong, Minnesota is a fisherman's paradise, but the pannies are just plain bigger down there. I also sort of miss the catfishing, which can be phenomenal...

There are some great perch bites going on right now. I love crappie fishing but a golden perch fillet in the frying pan just sounds better.

If you looking for cats, you may want to look on the river over by Mankato. I know guys that pull monsters over there every year but they are tight liped about where.

      I recently purchased a humminbird 688ci hd ice locator and it has GPS and the option for lake master chip. I'm going to drive to Cabela's to buy a chip  and was wondering the difference between the Lake Master Minnesota and the Minnesota Plus. Anyone have any experience with these and are they worth the money. Thanks.

      I haven’t checked backwaters since last weekend, but I checked the small lake this morning and it has just under 2 inches of ice.  McNally’s has been hit pretty hard for the last 2 weeks.

      Good hearing from you, always enjoyed reading of you & Doc's adventures.

      You start posting where the crappies are on the lake now.  We'll start talking!
    • JTeeth
      Even when the lake trail is marked the oak narrows are sketchey and I avoid it when I can. There can be 24" here and 1/4" there. That being said... There is ice but that's the worst spot on the lake

      What a difference a few years makes on the volume of posts on this site.  The early 2000’s was filled with numerous posts during the Crappie Boom by colorful characters like Kelly P, Jiggle Stick, the Gamblers and so many others.  Clamping, lead suits, IBOTS, Crappie Highway, and so many other memories.  Some of those memory makers are no longer with us R.I.P.  I don’t come on this site that often anymore but still enjoy Kelly’s wisdom and knowledge concerning the lake and topics related to it.  I try to keep up on happenings through the URL Association newsletter but I miss the old days.  I must be getting old.
