      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 .

Ideas for the 2 Get To Gators!!

Recommended Posts

I know its way early, but alot of people get out on the lakes over the summer, and find alot of awesome spots or different lakes that we might be able to get out on this up coming winter.

So with that in mind, lets start to get some ideas and get the ball rolling early!

seriosly though, earlier it was mentioned to maybe do a 2 day deal. with that in mind my ideas would be for a 2 day deal is winnie, keep in mind highbanks only opens up new years, unless theyve changed. leech or the branerd area. one day shots could be maple agian or koronis, rice lake near paynseville. these just for starters.

yes, but rice has numbers with a few biggins. koronis for the times i have been on it is real clear. rice is to for the most part.

Pelican, everyone and their mother are already out fishing so if we set up a bunch of spear houses and a grill the turnout will be good, plus lots of nice pike smile

Pelican is right by Albertville, pretty shallow lake, its the one that the DNR is gonna lower the water level for waterfowl. Gets tons of pressure, last year was crazy from day one of ice to the end of the year hundreds of houses out there and im not joking about hundreds either. Some big pike caught out there and big pannies as well. Not sure on water clarity. thats why i was kinda joking cause no matter what you will probably have lots of randoms come up and see whats going on when a bunch of spear houses and a grill go up in a general area.

pelican is an awsome lake for spearing with a chance a real trophy pike plus thousands of eater size pike was out there last a couple of times and saw many pike. it is not a crystal clear lake but it is not hard to see the bottom in 7-8 fow.I know of a few guys that did very,very well spearing last year and one of the times I was out there pannie fishing I counted 70 plus spear shacks alone. the only thing would be the access if it is to early in the season could be iffy for getting out but atvs or sno machines would work very well just depends on the time of year.

I'll bring the brownnies again with no nuts

I'd second winnie. First ice, third river, it's not uncommon to see 50 pike in a day as long as you get away from the crowds. Not much for really big ones, but alot of 5-10lbers. There's always a few jumbos swimming around under the holes at first ice in there, too.

i would have no problem with winnie, but we cant do it for just one day, that has to be a 3-5 day trip IMO.

Pelican sounds like a nice lake to hit up for a outing!

And yes, no nutz in them things!

It's not that bad of a drive, maybe 2 1/2 hours. If anyone is interested in staying a few days, my folks have a cabin by Sand Lake which is about 10 miles from Winnie. It has comfortable sleeping for 6 (2 sets of bunks, 1 futon, 1 short couch) but we can fit a mess of people in there if ya'll don't mind sleeping on the floor. No electricity or plumbing, but we have gas lighting and stoves and a wood stove that works real good. However, if we have a bunch of snow it's not a real easy place to get into, you'd need a 4x4.
