      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 will be in the area a few times this summer and love to fish for the toothy critters. Any advice as to where I might hook a decent fish.

For a decent fish I'd try Pokegama or Wabana. In Pokeg the bigger gators I think are pretty much smelt related, so that means fishing deep, 30-40' with bigger jigs and shiners is productive. Try to locate a school of smelt on your graph and fish that area. As for a quantity type of lake, pick one as most lakes have plenty of smaller gators to go around.

For BIG Pike,try the Mississippi River between the Pokegema Dam and Blandin dam.............there are some real gaters in those waters..........big sucker minnows under a bobber,or on a jig works great.......use heavy gear as there are some HUGE Muskies around there also cool.gif

the big fork river shouldn't go un-named.

it holds a very healthy populatin of big pike and muskies too.

Anderson lake east of big fork has a bunch of big pike as well, but I'm not sure if access is possible any longer.

don't forget, from Deer River, you are only an hour and twenty minutes from the best big pike fishery in MN, Upper Red lake. hands down the best.
