      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 .

DNR netting reports for Mille Lacs and Alexander

Recommended Posts

Was just looking at some of the numbers that were pulled up in the nets from Mille Lacs and Alexander. Has Alex come a long ways, eh? Although they didn't pull any fish over 50, they managed quite a few fish in the big 40's. I am sure that there are some 50's swimming around in there. As for Mille Lacs......we all know the monsters swimming around in that lake. However, the DNR netted a 54.4X 29 MONSTER. Figured it to be in the 57 pound range! All you can say about that is OH MY!!!! shocked

What kind of nets do they use? I hope they are not injuring these fish. Alexander is decent for numbers of fish and you can catch some of decent length. The only problem with Alexander is that the fish are noticeably skinnier than other lakes that I fish. I wish I knew why the fish in Alexander don't get that big body build. I would guess it is because of the forage base in the lake, but I have had people tell me it is loaded with tulibees? I question whether or not there is many tulibees in Alexander.

Alex's tulibee's are nearly non-existant now-a-days. They have started to stock some in recent years to try and get the population back. I do think that is the reason for skinnier fish also. I have seen pics of a 52" out of Alex.

The DNR uses trap (hoop) nets to survey muskies as muskies are to large to effectively get caught in gill nets. I helped the Little Falls area fisheries net Alex in the spring of '96, the first year that they netted a 40" fish. Lake has come a long way since then, better walleye fishing too.
