      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 .

You might want to wait until 5/26 to fish for bass since it's illegal to target them until then.

I was out on Fish Lake about 2 days ago. The dock and the boat landing are rampant with weeds and algae. Doesn't look so good so far.

About 2 summers ago, my wife and I took the boat out there and had a blast. We had 18 bass and 2 northerns in a 4 hour period, none of which came home of course. So if you have a boat, it's your best bet, oh yeah, it's a trolling motor only lake too.

Fish isn't a great shore-fishing lake. Most of the shore-fishing opportunity is on the eastern basin, which is shallow, & once it warms up is full mostly of little sunnies. I've caught a few fish there, but nothing from shore to speak of.

As someone else mentioned, wait another week & you'll have plenty of small-pond options in Eagan for bass.

I know this is a late response...but i have to give my 2c

My aunt lives next to this lake, and i usulay have a friend go with me in our little paddle boat. 3 years ago it fishing was very very good, i got a 30inch pike out of there and numerous bass around the rockies next to the road. It seems like the last 2 winters been really really hard on the lake..., when spring time came, a lot of dead fish floated up. Since the first winter kill, bass/pike no where near the numbers we've caught in 2003. Still nice batch of sunnies.

I rarely see anyone out there in the summer - for good reason. The heat plus weeds plus uncooperative fish makes the fishing unproductive during the summer months. I've seen two spearing shacks on the ice that probably take their toll as well (nothing against spearing in general, just not wild about taking the better-sized fish out of such a tiny lake).

You must really like Schwanz or fish it alot. I see that you have mentioned it more than several times in different threads on FM over this Summer or year. It's a good childrens fishing pond with lotsa small panfish & bass. There are some nice fish to be caught. It does have a pier and public shorline to fish along.

As far as Fish Lake goes it's mostly panfish and is difficult to fish due to heavy weed & algae.
