      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 .

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

Fish The Ducks

Recommended Posts

Has anyone ever soft or hardwater fished the
Duck Mountains in west central Manitoba. If so, how do you rate it. Walleye or trout.

West Blue Lake would have "larger" walleye (10# plus and is fished to a larger extent at night) while Beautiful lake has a walleye population that cycles in term of numbers and size -- fishing pressure and oxygen depletion are its nemesis. Wellman has good walleye but they see a lot of hooks.

The Duck Mountains in general are renown for their trout....The fly fishing club has their cabin in the park for a reason: The fishing can be great and the surroundings are special. When I visit the Ducks I'll have both the flyrod/tube and hardware/boat handy. Briefly....
Childs lake has some reasonable lakers, Laurie has some huge browns and some respectable splake/lakers,
Gull (my personal favorite) has good bows, splake and the odd brookie,
Shilladay has good bows -- and is the best for tubing,
East blue has monster splake, good bows, Singush has good perch and smallies,
Perch Lake cycles but has good browns,
Two mile lake has good brookies and some large bows
Glad has good bows and some nice char
Beaver lake has some small bows and brookies but the Pine river which flows form Beaver is one of Manitoba's only streams which has reproducing population of Rainbows and brookies

Manitoba's only musky lake is here. Line lake has a few 40 inchers and a respectable walleye population (perhaps the best eater size population in the park). Twin lake had musky but winter killed.

The Angling lakes are on the rebound. When they were in their prime they held one of Manitoba's "best" perch populations.

One little know fact is that on the south west corner of the park is the headwaters of the shell river and brown trout stocking has been going on for some time now.... but I can't say for sure if it has been a success. You'll have to talk to Ken Kansas about that one..

This is one of Manitoba's fishing jewels. If you want to know more about the park drop me a note.
