      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 .

Fishing Mille Lacs/small boat

Recommended Posts

Where's a good spot I can bring my 10 yr. old for some walleyes, currently I have a 16' Alumacraft so going out to most of the fishing spots can be a little hairy. I'm thinking there has to be a few spots that are not to far from shore that if things get a little too windy I can get to some calmer water quickly. I've been on that lake when things can get crazy real quick and I don't want to get too far out with my boy in the boat.

Eddy's would be a good spot I would think. Some rocks close and 7 mile wouldn't be bad on a calm day. If it got windy you can get behind the point and back to the bay. Also Malmo looks to be quite close to the northend sand. I haven't put in there but may try tommorrow.

With a 16 ft boat you can get out quite often. Just pay close attention to the wind. I use to have a Lund 16ft Rebel, and could get out alot. It may take a little longer in the wind. You can fish the mud in your boat.

I have found that the boat can ussually handle more than the people in it but PLEASE be carefull and know your weather report. Look at this last saturday. 75 deg. with a light SW wind at 10:00 am. 45 deg with 25 mph plus NE winds at 4:00 pm. And the last thing you want to do is scare the living s--t out of a 10 year old and ruin him for life.

Yeah Saturday was crazy. We were in a 16ft Lund Rebel too, and it was fine in the morning. But once the wind switched, we got rocked. We were able to fish until 3:30 or so, but it would have been pretty scary to someone young or unexperienced. But if you watch the weather, you can do it.

You will be fine as long as your careful about your surrondings. I was on the north end yesterday, winds were gusting up to about 25 mph out of se. And there was a guy out on the first break with a johnboat rigged with a 25hp Honda. Not my idea of a Mille Lacs worth rig, but to his credit he seemed to be paying attention to the waves, as well as the other boats, and he stayed afloat.

Ive had my 16' alumacraft out on the lakes alot with moderate waves no problem. Just make sure you know where you are and where to go if things start building. The wave wackers come in handy even when drifting and going forward. Also a drift sock.
