      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 .

jig, minnow, and a medium action rod is about all you need to catch hundreds of walleyes in that area.

If you were to troll cranks in the afternoon/evening, you don't need much there. Med action rod, and deep diving Rapalas. I really don't think you need more than a few rods/person for this type of fishing.

Right on, Hemlock. Leave all that [PoorWordUsage] at home and bring one spining rod, a few jigs and some spinners.

Then you can relax. All that other stuff is to much like work!!!

What Hemlock+Wild Thing Said

I go up there 1-3 times a year. My list of thing to take.

1- crappie rod

2-spinning rods med + med/heavy, eyes,northens

2-baitcasters med/heavy + heavy, musky, pike

The only reason I take so many is you never know when one will brake.

I almost always leave one or two at camp for the above resin.

1- large box with cranks, spinners, miscellaneous stufffffff. You know

2- small boxes. 1 for spinner baits (I make them so I bring lots) Love to catch pike.

and 1 small box for lead (jigs, bait walkers with spinners and lots of rubber.

twisters tails, grubs, gulp type stuff.

Thats it.

I have bin given some ---- for taking to much stuffff. But if you don't have it,

there is no place to buy it in the middle of the lake. (Sorry Hemlock)

As for the lead core line and trolling stuff, I don't think it will be necessary on that part of the lake. No offense implied or expressed!

Please, let us know how you did when you get back.

Last year i took him and he shot a dandy bird with a 11 1/4 beard and 1 1/8" spurs and weighed a little over 23#'s.

    • Bird down!  Ryan tagged out yesterday on the first day of the year he could hunt. It's a pretty nice Tom with 3/4" sure and an 8 3/4" beard. I'll get some pics up and it entered when I can.

    • I took a short ride the other day but still a little chilly out in the breeze. Streets were pretty good as they were out sweeping them before the last snow. Saw a lot of bikes out the last couple of days. Don't forget to put your new licence tag on as I almost did.
