      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 .

Just looking for a little info on bass fishing on this body of water. Not looking for secret spots just general ideas. Fished it on monday, stuck mostly to the north basin due to the wind. Just wondering which basin tends to be a better option or produces more consistently. Also, does the curly pondweed (i think thats what it is) die back at all during the summer. Any info is appreciated. Also, any danger areas , with regards to underwater obstacles and prop/boat damage.

We did fairly well, caught one nice one 4.5 lbs. Also caught quite a few pike. Caught them on plastics, jigs, and spinnerbaits. We were really limited in where we could fish due to the 35 mph winds out of the south and the trolling motor battery running low. Do those weeds die off at all during the summer?

the lake gets pretty thick with weeds due to the shallow nature of the lake.. im sure they die off and Id love to try fishin that lake in the fall.. I hear there are some HUGE pike and panfish in there!!.. Just wish they would improve the acess a bit! smile.gif

I was out there this past monday and water clarity was decent. I would estimate at around 3 to 4 feet visibility.

Any Walleye activity in the lake? Noticed that quite a few were released by the DNR over the years. Is there an access for the southern basin or do you access it from the North. Is it possible to access it from the North basin with that rock bar? Any answers would be greatly appreciated.

there is only the 1 access and its unimproved, meaning it can get a little sloppy if the weather has been wet.. not much of an access.. Kind of reminds me of a farmers field approach..lol.. haven't heard alot about walleyes there.. been mostly panfish and bass and pike
