      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 .

What a great Weekend!!

Hey all, just wanted to leave a quick mesage about this past weekend. My buddy and I hit the Big Pond this past Sat and Sun and caught about 40 eyes. No kidding here - the eyes averaged 23 inches with the biggest being 26 inches and about 6 lbs. We tried the Garrison rocks with some luck and some other areas, but the best area by far was Indian Point yesterday. At times there were 5 foot waves with the gail force Southeaster winds, but an 1/8th ounce green and chartreuse Northland jig tipped with a leech was the ticket. We were setup in about 16ft of water and casting into about 13 ft of water and just bouncing the jigs back. There were 2 other boats by us just nalining big horse walleyes as well on Indian Point.

A quick note : Sorry to the Dad and his 3 eight year old boys that I got p.oed at up by the Casino launch - the one where the ramp itself is in a little inlet type thing big enough for 3 boats, yet 25 were all there at once at the end of the day. I was the guy there on Sat night who was hung up in 2 inches and water and was the guy who also had to get out into the water and push off those same rocks. That was precisely the time I got p.oed at the guy with his kids in the Lund who was blocking off the narrow opening that everybody and their mother was trying to get through...

I had a good reason for being stuck on those 2 inches of water though - my old 92 Yamaha needs that little rubber star piace part so the water can intake thorugh there a little better. Without this piece my motor overheats in a hurry when idleing - I had to shut her off while the mass exodus of boats were coming in and the wind just charged me right into the 2 inch water area. All one passerby could say to me while I was struggling in the water to push my boat out was, "Hey, you can't be over there.." Um, ya think? Yes, I saw it all on that day, but I'm sure the laughs were on me that night. I just feel bad for letting out an F- bomb to the guy blocking the entrance as he had his 3 eight year olds in the boat. I was sorry that I came unglued there, but it was mucho frustrating at that launch.

Anyways, what a great fishery and I hope to be back soon!

I agree. It was my first opener on ML. We didn't catch the numbers that most people did, but caught quality fish,(25.5, 24.5, 23.5, 23.5, 21, 17.5, 17, 15) and lost a big one too. The boat traffic wasn't bad at all where we fished on the south side. My brother did great on the sand too. It should be a great summer. There was lots of boats, but people were considerate, it's a big lake and all the fish are not in the same area.

I had a fantastic four day weekend on Mille Lacs. Good fishing in terms of number and size. It was a lot of fun for me because I grew up with a cabin on Mille Lacs (family sold it when I was in college). My buddy bought a place on the SE side this spring so it was my first opener on Mille Lacs in at least 15 years. I have fished my share on Mille Lacs since but this is the first time in years I have had that 'home base' cabin feel again. It brought back the memories.

A highlight for me was having a 'double' with my nephew as we pulled in identical bookend 27's at the same time. They were our biggest fish of the weekend. One thing I thought was ironic was we had those good numbers and average size but we only caught one walleye all weekend below 14".

I was sorry to see the shape of the public landings. I hope that water doesn't go down any further.
