      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 .

Pretty slow Saturday morning. I was out from 6:00 - 11:00 a.m. I only saw one fish caught. It was not in my boat! The reports from guys that I talked to were favorable from last week. I am not sure what was wrong yesterday but it was a slow morning. I think the best is yet to come in the Prescott area.

Water temps around marine this weekend were 55-56 and the water was as low as I have seen it this time of year. On the upside, I caught a bunch of white bass and had a blast on saturday afternoon. Had a good meal of them tonight and can't wait to get back out there again. I heard they are hot and heavy up around Taylors falls as well!

Jloomis, It was good to meet you the other day! Never know when you are going to run into a fellow FM'r so I always ask now. I am hoping to get back out a couple times this week before the opener. Again, thanks for the fishing report and it was nice to meet you!

I was down there on Saturday as well, had a couple of bites along with a couple of snags on jigs (both meat and plastics). I was even skilled enough to catch myself a rock. After a couple of hours of the same old same old we decided to pull some cranks up shallow (< 12 fow) and it took us about 10 minutes to tie into our first one (26") and 10 or 15 minutes later had a bigger one on which threw the hook before getting it into the boat. Guess it didn't want it's picture taken. We had our luck on #5 glass shadraps pulling them along at 1.1 - 1.3 mph. We were hitting an area that had some scattered rock piles which the fish seemed to be relating to. Definitely one of those days that if you keep your mind open and willing to try different techniques good things might happen.

Hey fanatic- What kind of fish did you hook in to? 'Eye, rough fish...

Both of them were eyes. I don't have a positive ID on the type of rock yet so to tell you the truth I don't know for sure if it was in season or not. I believe the rock was done spawning because it was relatively thin so I didn't feel too bad about keeping it. I'll be splitting my time between Prescott and Hudson this coming weekend if my beautiful bride will give me the pass. Say hey if you see a Tracker Tundra down there. I'll probably be able to give you a lot of techniques and locations that didn't put fish in the boat.

I was hoping to maybe get out either Thurs day evening or Friday am this week. I wil know about thursday probably by tomorrow. I guess you wouldn't mind fishing out of the "TINCAN" as I affectionately call it. Been a boat for me to fish from since it was brand spanking new in 76! Doesn't leak and floats the skinny water pretty well too! I'll post when I find out about Thursday night.

Went there on Sat. Shore fishing. One keeper, white bass, the rest are under slot limit(under 15). The bite is on right at dusk. Using rapala and jigs. The bigger the bait the bigger the fish.

      Pearl Lake has been lights out for crappies in that 10+ inch range this year, finally,  find 13-16 fow and then drill holes until you see suspended fish. When you find them I like a 1/10oz. Swedish pimple (silver/glow) with 2 waxies, keep it above the fish and they’ll come up for it.

      I heard reports Friday of 3-5 inches out of Bayport.

      I'm on vacation until January 2nd if anyone wants to meet up and go fishing let me know I've got all my own gear 95% of the time I fish alone. Willing to drive anywhere or help with gas or what ever. Going to try a local lake in the morning for some eyes and panfish unless someone has any other suggestions. Mostly a CPR guy but it's also nice to occasionally bring some home for the family.

      Still pheasant hunting and still seeing lots of birds!  Went out an afternoon this past week and saw about 75 in 2.5 hours.  Went home with my 3 roosters.  Everything is froze good now so its easy walking and there's fresh snow.

      Welcome to FM, Some lakes near you that are good and have some quality  are Ann,Knife and Fish to the East and the Briggs chain to the West.  Look for green vegetation or mud basin bug hatches for action. 
    • monstermoose78
      Sure helps to find them when you have some of the top panfish anglers around helping
    • IceHawk
      Good fish Rick way to find some quality fish in a highly pressured area. Takes skill to be able to accomplish that. Maybe run into you one of these days out there
    • IceHawk
      Nice fish guys looked like a good time was had . That lake has some quality for sure. Figured you guys would dial them in.
    • Jory
      Not new to ice fishing but I can't seem to find the fish anymore around my neck of the woods in foley mn. so if anyone could give great insight of lakes times and maybe hints of baits and area of the lake would be awesome.
