      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 .

North Long

anyone know if there is going to be a reasonable way to get onto North Long for the opener... awfully shallow last year to the point where I could drive the truck into the lake and turn around in the lake to get the boat loaded.

The Merrifield access is in decent shape. It should be good to go for opener.

The merrifield landing is the deapestpublic landing on the lake that I know of. Getting into the main lake shouldnt be a problem but getting into the 371 bay mite. The channel is very very shallow so be carefull. Dad lives on the 371 bay and its a good 2 ft low witch meens not much water in the channel.

Good luck

You dont need a boat. I have seen guys who just put a couch in the back of their trucks and drive around in the shallows, pull long line cranks laugh.giflaugh.giflaugh.gif

Anyways, i like the Merifield access the best.

The North Long Lake assn has put a series of bouys through the 371 narrows. I am assuming to force boats to use the same area and "wash out" a lane. If you trim up the motor and let it buck you will be fine. I ran my 21' Ranger through there the other day and had no problem.

A Weagle is a top water bait for muskies that my buddie makes, or made till he sold the company. Very big piece of wood that goes side to side. LOL

Started out when we were in KY for a tourny. Went into a bar and some of the people looked like "uprite walking bullheads", Hens the "Wabull" (walking bullhead-jerk bait). Then he made the top water, Weagles wabulls but they wont fall down. Kinda stupid but kinda funny.

Used the access at 371,it was shallow but still worked.Need ed to pull the boat off the trailer and then pull the truck out.The area directly behind the wash out is to shallow make a hard right and follow the shorline then out.If the lake drops any lower will have to use merifield.Had one of the better opener in years,fish were already on early summer spots.Was a challenge to fish on Sunday morning with the wind but well worth it.Burl.
