      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 .

Lake I Wanttobethere of course! the water is clear and the access deep. A variety of fish and the wind is always just right. Bugs are few and there is always a passing boat of gals who need directions. You can get the Twins game on your boat radio and your kids are never cranky. Did I mention the parking at the access with the first spot always open for you? The place where memories are made from, I'm sure you have been there..

I really like Pulaski but the PWC on that lake can get a little out of control. My other choice'd have to be cedar or sugar. laugh.gif

I also like Pulaski, it is such a refreshing lake. I take measures to fish when the jetski/ski boat jocks are asleep or wussed out on the weather. :-) Unless it is clear, sunny and glassy, those pests don't hit the water until 10am usually. :-)

I also like Mink/Somers before the pea soup boils over.

But Clearwater is at the top of my list - it's big enough that even on high-traffic days, everyone can find structure to work for what they want.

well you guys r naming of those big name lakes, ill stick to the little ones... haha... ok starting withjohn lake... great bassin' and defintly got to hit the northerns... Indian is another good lake for bass. dang them bucket mouth were on a feeding frenzy with our wacky worms. Locke was a good contender in consistancy. Nuthing real big for the pike, but did manage to get quite a bunch. These lakes lie north of annadale though... Little lakes sure do have the potential to through out the big ones.

I'll agree wiht that. Biggest crappie came from one of those hundred acre lakes. Like Rock for pannies.

Indain has always been good for a great bass bite for me also.

      Thanks for the update cigarguy- were you lindy rigging?
    • CigarGuy
      Neighbor and I went out in Wakemup for a couple hours tonight and got a 18" and 19" and had a nice one come unbutton on the way in....Leaches and crawlers.  That's good for me!  20 - 34' off a break line.  Del, working on the last flight of the steps-was looking for you to stop by and help!

      I used lead core on Friday and had a ball catching walleyes of all sizes.  I started in the morning and stayed out until I just got tired in the afternoon.  I probably pulled in as many as 20 or so.  My formula was:  90 feet of line, 19-24 ft of water, #5 rattling split deep shad rap.  Silver color.  I kept it right at 2mph.  I also did much better when I pumped the rod in a regular cadence.  Keeping it in the rod holder didn't produce near the fish.

      Ace, I hope you enjoy your retirement.  I hired you one time and my boy and I had a good time.  I appreciate the hard work you did on putting us on fish.  Good Luck and maybe "Little Ace" can continue the family business some day!   Michael Theis

      These are legal aliens.  Glad you enjoyed your lunch.

      Trolling or casting jigs and spinners(silver or gold are best for pike IMO) near the weeds, in bays, etc, cranks, and top water buzz baits around weedy areas are how I get most of my pike. Use a leader. Orange jig heads with a sparkly yellow twister tail and a jumbo leech gets me more pike than any other method. Your mileage may vary.

      I had lunch there a couple of days ago. Great service and good food! I did not see any illegal type aliens there at that time!  Cliff

      Sorry, don't remember TJ Hooker.  Besides I make it a practice to avoid hookers....  (rim shot)

      This year?   It is new this year.... Apparently a lot of businesses are having trouble hiring seasonal employees.
