      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 .

I'm glad to see there's a forum dedicated to fishing in my area. I'm new to Minnesota and new to the Annandale area. I recently moved here from Los Angeles and I work for Pure Fishing as a Territory Manager. I hope to learn a lot about the local fisheries in the next few months, especially Sylvia, the lake I'm on.

Catcherman, Welcome to minnesota and the FM site. You can find all types of info here. Sylvia is a great lake for fishing, it all depends on what you like to catch. We live in an area where you don't need to go far to find some really good fishing year around.

Hope we can chatt soon.

Hi Catcherman,

I am also kind of new to the area. My wife is from Annandale originally and we are currently house sitting on Pleasant Lake while in the process of building. Give me an email sometime and maybe we can fish or just share some info. Hope to hear from you. Email address is: chad@amecommunity.com

Welcome to our neck of the woods!

You picked a great area to live in when it comes to fishing. There are so many good lakes within a 35 minute drive from where we live. Whithin that same distance we are able to target several species of quality fish. If you're ever looking for somebody to fish with shoot me an email. The ice is out now on some of the lakes, which makes for a short "late-ice" season, but allows us to get the boats out even earlier than previous years.

I was just going to reply and suggest that some of you come to the Northwest Sportshow this weekend and say hello. I've been there all week, as I am the southern Minnesota Sales Rep. for Berkley, Fenwick, Abu Garcia, etc.

If any of you make it out there today or tomorrow, come by our booth and ask for Mickey, that's me.

Thank you all for the warm welcome. I think I'll be spending a lot of time reading the good info you have all taken the time to post here. Eventually, I'll chime in a little more as well.

On a separate note, I noticed Deitz is the moderator here. He and I know each other from a few years back on my site and we happened to run into each other at the Sportshow this year. He's helping out at Thorne Bros., one of my accounts. It was the first meeting face to face. Pretty cool.

On saturday, were you at the Berkley stand. I talked to a guy but didn't see his name tag. Taught me some stuff about weeds and walleyes. Might've been you.

I was in the Berkley booth every day except Tuesday.

What did you learn about weeds and walleyes?

Some very interesting stuff. He said that lakes that have a large population of stoked walleyes like to live in the weeds. They like weeds because in rearing ponds, they live in weeds all the time and are used to it. Told me to use the Gulp minnows with a jig and just rip them through the weeds. Might end up giving it a try this year.

Well that wasn't me, but it's sound advice. I'd also rig them on a drop shot and pull them through a little slower with a lot more action.

      Thanks snowfighter. Coming up Dec 9 weekend.my brother took some fish outta little turtle the weekend of Oct 7 th. Sounds like from your end of the lake. Seen pics, some decent pike.
    • Wanderer
      With 2 trout stamps you can keep double your limit. You heard it here first on the interwebs!  Me and Mr Williams will swing by and say Hi this winter in Ely.   That is, if we can get around your sled!!  Happy Thanksgiving!

      don't  give them any ideas!

       There is probably not going to be much ice to speak of  if the forecast holds true. They are talking 50s on Friday, Sunday and Monday. Any ice we did have will most likely be gone, unfortunately.
    • snowfighter
      Haven't been out looking but things have been froze up for awhile. Heard there was some out on Bowstring last week.

      Wife you dummy  I know the problem first hand !!
    • MJ1657
      It's that time of year. Cone on up and see if you can claim the Nord Lord. Spearing in the Third River Flowage in Winnie. Pizza party Friday night in the lodge potluck in the ice Saturday at noon.   Any questions hollar.

      Saw something interesting on forest lake this morning...lake was completely locked up, yet someone had launched their boat and was trudging through the ice! That’s dedication! Anyone have any ice updates to report?

      2 Trout stamps.  Did I miss something and need to go back and get another?
    • Wanderer
      The 200 foot rule gets me a little but it has to be defined somehow what is occupied and what isn’t.   So for a wheelhouse we get to buy tabs to have on the road and a sticker to have it on the ice and go away for a little while.  Seems pretty close to double taxation since any LE can find out who the owner is from the current plate. Plus the spear shack that I might want to keep up over the weekend.  2 tags plus license. Combination sports license 2 trout stamps Waterfowl stamps Pheasant stamp  Turkey license (stamp now included) Deer license for all seasons   The bucket is getting heavy with all the drops in it.
