      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 .

Does anyone fish this lake in the summer? My Grandparents use to own a farm on the lake when I was knee high to a grasshopper on this lake. We use to catch some very nice Lg mouth bass and sunfish there. They also had a campground and rented out boats.

Is this lake still good for any specie? There use to be no homes around the lake and I kmow the on the west side it is almost full today.

Funny you should bring this up. My buddy and I were just talking yesterday about the big bass we used to catch out of there about 10 years ago, haven't fished it since then. Planning on giving it a shot this spring.

We used to fish Twin years ago also. Seems to me we caught trout in there. That was probably 25+ years ago.

Still wonder about it everytime we head up 87 to the cabin.

I fished the lake as a lad in the 60's and there were some beautiful panfish in the lake and the largemouth were pigs.

There were a few northerns and a few crappies also.

I never caught any trout in the lake though.

Twin Lake just east of Eureka? There is another lake right next to it (hence the "twin"?) maybe that's the one you're thinking about?

Check this map out. It seems trout is the only species in there.

The Lake I,m talking about is approx 3 miles north of the town of Cushing and then to the right off the tar approx 1 mile. The lake is to the north of the road. Or west of Luck about 10 miles.

There may be another DNR name for the lake like Herby or something like that but since the early 60's we called it Twin lakes along with all the neighbors there. I could be wrong on the name. My Grandfather had a farm on the lake all of his life. They also had a campground and rented out the only boats on the lake as it was all private land around it. I would guess around the late 60's they did put a public landing in on the east half of the lake in the NW corner.

On a map it's called Herby, because East and West Twin are south of Cushing. That's a little more helpful. I've never fished it but from a little fact finding it sounds like the lake had a partial winterkill sometime in the mid 90's. Afterward there was a single stocking of northern and bass. It sounds like the bass fishery has come back, not a whole lot of mention of other species.

edit: The shoreline also looks to be about 50% developed at this time.

When my Grandfather owned the farm on the lake there it was all farm land and no cabins or houses. When we sold the farm years ago they started to put up the cabins and houses. I believe it all started around the middle 80's if I remember correctly.

    • I have a feeling PIYA is an acronym. Maybe it stands for Pain In Your A@@.
    • Yes and it sucks. Putting a pro view in Lp mode in shallow water means you are going to have a narrower cone. (Because LP mode is low power which is a 50% cut in power which less power equals narrower cone on a pro view)  To get a wide cone angle and sharp returns in shallow water is impossible with a pro view. To get a narrow cone in deep water if you need the gain up it is impoosible with a pro view. basicly the pro view cant do what a person wants. Which is a wide beam low gain/lp mode in shallow water and a narrow cone higher gain in deep water.
