      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 .

I started to fish Strawberry over sixty years ago with my Dad, the lake was so far down in those days that a lot of the structure that is under water now was exposed and above water. Haven't fished the lake since the resort quit letting boats launch there. Just don't dare leave a vehicle at the public access. My favorite time to fish Strawberry was in the fall after the first frost, we would troll the west shore at night real shallow with large minnows, and also the south shore up against the bullrushes. There is a sunken island out to the west from the public access, which is good for eyes. In the summer we caught most of our eyes on the east shore towards the north, the deepest part of the lake is in that area, a little further to the north from there are some sandbars with a fairly good dropoff. Years ago part of the bar had willows growing on it. We have caught a few eyes in the 8 to 6 lb. range and northerns up to 16#. The eyes used to be nice and fat as there was and still should be cisco's in there. Yes it is pretty much of a bowl, but you will find some structure making it fairly easy to fish. Good Luck.

we were out there this winter one night and only got a few smaller fish but it can get good bc of the deep weed line in the lake. Good luck, dont be afraid to look deep like 30 feet or deeper later this summer.

Thanks for the tips fellas, I know that lake has got good walleye numbers, as well as a good ciscoe population, I gotta bro that works for the fisheries department. So their must be some fatties in there. Im definately gonna give it a shot here in the next 2 - 3 weeks. I'll keep my eye out for those deep weedlines.

Brother has a cabin on the Berrys bar side of the lake. Going there this weekend. Neihbor caught 16 walley and about 30 crappies the other day. This winter we kept numerous eyes and one over 31 inches on one outing. Hard to find but the guys who fish it a lot seem to do well all the time.

I have heard of incidents from several people I know. Not necessarily thieving, but vandalism. By the way I didn't mention who it was because nobody knows.

When I fish White Earth I always park at the resort, pay them $5.00 for a good safe parking spot. It is just a fact of life. Better safe than sorry. I have had things removed from there rightfull owner (namely me before and it aint no fun).

Yeah, I am an indian, I don't think he was saying that. I dont' have anything in my Jeep to steal anyways. I'd leave it there with no hesitation.

      I just purchased the Humminbird Autochart Pro to use wth my Humminbird 999. After going through the 'installation guide' and the 'get started guide' that's included in the Autochart PC program, I can't find what I need to do to get this on my model Humminbird. Anyone have experience? Thanks, Paul

      Did well this morning on big bay with gold spinners. 24-26 feet off the edge of a reef. Decided since they were biting we'd try the west end to see if we could catch some big fish. Put up a big zero out there. Guess they behave a bit different from end to end.  On a small reef out west had a guy pull up on us, throw a marker right on the fish and camp out right there. Kind of tough to fish spinners when someone does that. What is the etiquette on this lake when someone does that? Just fish where you want even if you run right up on them or in between them and the marker? I see the thousand dollar  depthfinder in the back of the boat, just mark a waypoint and keep the marker in the boat man. Really grinds my gears. Whoops...sorry for the rant   Never had that happen on the east end though

      Coming up next weekend to pull up the docks for the last time. Yup, my brother-in-laws folks sold their place on Frazer Bay. They owned the beautiful place just west of the public boat landing.They are in their 80's and are going to stay put at their place on Arizona. Been coming up for 20 years and now I won't have a free place to vacation at. Going to have to do some surfing for rentals I guess. Anyways, how has the walleye fishing been? Guess the weather will be quite a bit cooler next week.  Thanks for all the help over the years!
