      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 .

Fishing on Lake Elmo

Recommended Posts

There are big pike and muskie in there. It's a really hard lake to fish though because it's deep and clear. I've caught bass out of it, but never a Pike or Muskie. I don't know if others will chime in, but I can tell you to go to Blue Ribbon Bait and talk to Josh. He's got the record tiger-muskie and it came from that lake.

You need a really long cast and often they're in deep water. Chances are that they often see you long before you see them and have probably followed your lure from a long way. Plus if those pleasure boaters would just not be around, your chances increases a lot in hooking into one of them.

Have had lots of success at Elmo in past years. Trolling deep divers 2-8 mph yielded the most fish. Ledgends, Ernies, etc. Mostly Northerns, but also pulled out a 27 inch wally, a tiger about mid 30's inches, and an occasional carp snagging.

The main issue with fishing such a deep lake was reviving fish. most of the fish we caught are suspened in 70 -90 feet, always hitting the lure in the belly, and coming up so fast from those depths affected them greatly. The Pike seemed less "green" and a lot more fragile than that of Minnetonka for instance, possibly becuase of the clear cool water habitat....
