      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 .

Top 5 Metro Ice Pike Lakes

Recommended Posts

Hey all,

What do you all consider 5 of the better pikes lakes here in the Metro for ice fishing for pike?

Here are mine, in no particular order, with maybe a "sleeper" left off!

Minnetonka

White Bear (numbers not size)

Medicine

Green

Forest

These are all on the bigger size of lakes in terms of acreage and overall pike populations, I don't want to exploit a smaller lake and I prefer fishing a lake that can sustain the pressure.

Thoughts?

OK here goes, now be respectful of the size of the lake and catch and release accordingly.

For numbers;

The three M's

Minnetonka

Medicine

Minnewashta

For size;

Ann*

Waconia

* Exercise extreme caution from harvesting pike from this body of water. There is a very high slot for catch and release and for good reason, a pike nearing 40 inches is not out of the ordinary, and the lake is TINY! Please be a good steward of the resource and act accordingly.

Here is my list -

Big Marine (numbers)

Tonka (size)

White Bear

Forest

And a little known hole I found one day when I was a kid. Not many people get the skinny on that one. (Numbers and gargantuan size.)
