      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 .

A ski surprise,,,

big drift

On Saturday at o dark 30. We were wading off of Diamond Point not much happening and I took a knee in about a foot of water just off from the old launch spot. Well heard a splash right next to me turned on the head lamp and a big pig muskie was laying right there well over 42" with a smaller probably closer to 36" laying right alongside, I am sure they were a spawning pair, so we watched em for a bit as they cruised around out feet and then drifted off.

I tell ya turning that light on and first thing ya see is those eyes looking at ya that close wakes ya up. All in all way cool.

One little eye and one northern, spent way to much time avoiding boats in 3 fow, I mean really do folks have to get that close to the shoreline.

Did better Saturday night on the trout with the kids, and again on Sundsay. We ended up with 25 trout from Saturday and Sunday with some real nice ones.

I want to let things settle a bit before taking the kids out after eyes to many yahoos to make it enjoyable.

It was funny watching younger guys playing bumper boats and yelling at each other. Especially the ones running shallow getting hung up on Diamond Point Bar wished i had a video of that.

I went to BSU and while attending that glorious establishment of higher learning I along with my buddies fished Diamond Point a LOT at night. We had the same experiences as you did with the boats though. I was very frustrated when they could fish the entire lake and they anchor right in front of you.

One experience we heard a boat coming and turned our headlamps on so they could see us. The stopped literally 30 feet from me and anchored RIGHT where we were casting the edge of the dropoff. I told them that it was ridiculous that they could fish anywhere and they had to set up right there and no reply. So, I casted my #11 countdown across the bow of the little metal boat and began to crank it in. I heard the tink tink as it his the one side of the boat and dragged across the floor of the boat and then over the other side and splashed back into the water.

Without a word, they pulled up their anchor and left.

      The wife and I were up to L O W  for whole week. Great weather, good fishing and fun time. Was able to fish 7 days split up between Morris point, Long point and the river. For me Long point was the better bite. May have seen a couple members of outdoors Mn on Tuesday out of LP. Let me know if I'm right. Also met member from Wisc. at Morris point( real good guy) Anyway didn't seem to matter much what color jig caught them on every color with frozen shiner. Some days were better then others but always caught fish. Ate several meals of fish and brought fish home. Also caught a 14 in perch that I brought into taxidermist. Plan on going back at least one more time this fall . ( Too good not to).

      Got some grouse and saw some nice coveys. The biggest was 6 birds but found couple groups of 5. That is always fun.

      we mainly jigged fatheads in front of their mouths. 2 weeks ago also and tried a few different times over 3 days this trip. water is still crazy low so I don't think many boats will be using access. Also tried a couple different plastics and some gulp. Probably ready to go crazy up there soon.  Last year at this time it was really good. Might get there once more before ice time but not sure.

      Been thinking about breaking out the Jiggin Raps, might have to give that a shot. It's been too crowded out there this weekend with MEA going on.

      Sounds good! May an oversized deer with obscenely large antlers find its way to you!

      Well the weather was pretty crappy but the fish were biting...Had to sort through but kept some for dinner. Caught a variety today, eyes,jumbos,crappie and a few smallies... rigging on or next to rocks worked best for us.
