      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 .

Spring Panfish

Open water is here. If you want to catch a good number of gills and a few crappies, from shore Phalen creek is the place to be. Theres not to much size but its fun for the kids, and if you don't have a boat. Was there today, I happen to put a pole in the truck before I took the hound on his daily walk. So I stopped by the creek made a few casts and to my surprise they were thick in there. Just had a few waxies left from ice fishing and they went quick. Don't know if this cold weather comming this weekend is going to turn them off but I'll be there.

I'm taking a canoe there next weekend. Should be fun to finally wet a line and get a little exercise from paddling.

I live by Phalen, where is the creek? Are you talking where the bridge is on the north end? Just curious. Would be fun to catch a bunch even if they aren't keepers.

The creek is the connection of phalen and keller lakes. It's supposed to be pretty good for early season panfish, I'll find out for sure next week.

NO NO! That creek has ZERO fish! wink.gif The crappies are sporatic. Catch them as they come in from the lake. Almost any crappie or panfish jig will work!

I beg to differ, I was in the creek today, just in from were they put the dock and it forks two ways. Caught a couple dozen. Caught two that were over 10inches, the rest were under 8. Released all of them and got some people asking me for them. Told them I was on a catch and release mission. I think that pissed them off, because they could not get them.

      wealthwood had1.5 last weekend, i saw no one out but 1 person on the whole west side last wsat afternoon. thi week the resorts on the north end and east are reporting decent ice. check with the resorts before you go out. id stay away from public accesses now and follow a staked road.

      Have you fished out there before? Is it worth putting some time in on the ice? Thanks-
    • walleyewalby
      so went to go scope it out, 15 trucks on the northside, wheelers and houses out. Baxter is packed. last nights fresh snow is showing alot of active cracks too... i may wait a coujple days for blue and check out baxter instead.

    • blue gill hunter
      Has anyone heard of any ice reports on Big Marine?
    • dindunuffins
      I heard  6" or so around terrys..  id figure public access must be close to the same?
    • gimruis
      Dude, seriously just stay off the ice until its safer.  No fish is worth risking your life for.

       Ice is scary on blue. I was out last weekend fishing next to open water north end is kinda sketchy still my buddy has been there every day this week. Still cant get close to the points only 1 inch there. Thicker by north end but its all older ice from the first freeze lots of cracks. The bay to the east towards the points and whole south end were wide open last sunday. Had 4 inches right next to it we fished as close to the point as we could get. We were 40-50 ft from open water and we got one eye. But ive never been so scared on ice before it was cracking very badly very loud and could feel the ice shifting. The walk back to access in the dark had my heart pounding and i didnt tjink we would make it back without one uf us goin through but we did make it.
