      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 Elysian was a bust for us on Sat. We talked to 15 or so fishermen on the lake, one guy alone had one eye. There were aprox. 100 boats on the lake Sat. There wasn;t room to park at the north acess. Janesville was just as bad I heard. Sunday morning there were about 6 or 7 trailers at the north acess. There were a few boats around Kapans point catching sunfish. I guess we picked the wrong lake to open on. wink.gif

I fished it from 4AM to about 11AM without any walleyes. I didn't see anyone else with one in the boat either. Just bull heads and carp for us. I have never fished it before. Is the water always that murky? I swear you couldn't see down 6 inches. Maybe all that wind lately messed it up. Oh well got a few on Sunday at another location so all was not lost.

Elysian can be a great lake but the few times I have been there it is either murky or the smell will make you puke!

Maybe we are seeing the effects of the pounding it took, I haven't seen that many big schools of bullies in a long while.

Its back too the Elysian we all know is what it is. Last opener was not the norm. This lake normally doesnt go nuts like last season. Its normally a tough bite. Someone correct me if im wrong.

Back in the day when Elysian had alot of bullheads it was a tough bite. I think in general you'll see it stay that way this spring.

They also make plastic ones. I purchased some a few years ago but cannot remember where. I know I had to do quite a little searching on the net to find them.

Elysian is quite a tough bite, but dead sea nah. I have lived in Janesville and have seen that lake in its best out of the 18 years I have lived here. Use to catch big sunfish perch and crappies one right after another in it about 10 years ago. But you can't hardly find them anymore out there. But when it comes to fishing the eyes out there it's fun if you put the time in to find what they want. I have always had my best luck drifting with a lindy-rig and a minnow. usually did best drifting out in front of the houses on the east side of lake out by Kapons point. Was out there fishing from the dam on the Janesville side sunday night and my brother-in-law was out there for maybe 15-20 minutes and managed to stick two eyes in that time he was there. All it takes is sorting through those bullies and soon enough you will hook into a eye. So if you put the time in you will find them. Good luck and have fun and stay safe.
