      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 .

  1. Past hour
  2. First ice fishing trip today out of morson ontario . Fishing was a little slow got a few walleyes and a couple of crappies . Lost what little snow we had today made the ice really slippery. Found 9 to 11 inches of ice.
  3. Today
  4. Dang Curt, did you take my suggestion on a drone? Great report.
  5. Ice house license law change

    Well, I have to pay for registration on my boat trailer to run it on the road, and the boat to run it on the lake, why shouldn't wheel houses? I guess I don't feel bad for the wheel house guys.
  6. First Ice Crappies!

    No not yesterday. 2 weeks ago when we had that first cold spell I went out on Baxter, Blue and Long and checked the ice. They were locked up but only had 1-2" inches so didn't venture out too far. Baxter probably was walkable but had open water on the back end so figured I stay off. Last Sunday I went and checked them out after that warm rainy week we had and they had open water, so yesterday I skipped checking them and went farther north. But I did notice most lakes were locked up on the drive up there. Cant wait for the local lakes to get some decent ice!
  7. Wondering if big sandy is clear enough to spear fish when the ice comes on? Never done it before and would like to give it a try
  8. First Ice Crappies!

    Bryan did you check any lakes around me?
  9. First Ice Crappies!

    Had to scratch the ice fishing itch, so I drove up north to the Mille Lacs lake area and found a smaller lake with 4-5" of ice. Punch a few holes and found some crappies and sunnies. Nothing big but was fun time and a great way to start my ice seaso n! Bring on the ice! Check out the video: https://youtu.be/BTTv_G07PB8
  10. Ice house license law change

    Ok as long as she reads a book and stays the heck out of the way!
  11. Ice house license law change

    Double the lines for down rigging you dummy!
  12. Ice house license law change

    Hey, I resemble that remark!! Plus my wife only went fishing with me once the whole time that we have been married and she brought a book! I got her trained in right away. Sorry about your training problem!
  13. Ice house license law change

    Ok but with all those Trout. Bring a tow rope as I may be stuck in the slush!
  14. fish house parade in aitkin, Friday at 1
  15. Yesterday
  16. Thanks snowfighter. Coming up Dec 9 weekend.my brother took some fish outta little turtle the weekend of Oct 7 th. Sounds like from your end of the lake. Seen pics, some decent pike.
  17. Ice house license law change

    With 2 trout stamps you can keep double your limit. You heard it here first on the interwebs! Me and Mr Williams will swing by and say Hi this winter in Ely. That is, if we can get around your sled!! Happy Thanksgiving!
  18. There is probably not going to be much ice to speak of if the forecast holds true. They are talking 50s on Friday, Sunday and Monday. Any ice we did have will most likely be gone, unfortunately.
  19. Haven't been out looking but things have been froze up for awhile. Heard there was some out on Bowstring last week.
  20. Ice house license law change

    Wife you dummy I know the problem first hand !!
  21. It's that time of year. Cone on up and see if you can claim the Nord Lord. Spearing in the Third River Flowage in Winnie. Pizza party Friday night in the lodge potluck in the ice Saturday at noon. Any questions hollar.
  22. Saw something interesting on forest lake this morning...lake was completely locked up, yet someone had launched their boat and was trudging through the ice! That’s dedication! Anyone have any ice updates to report?
  23. Ice house license law change

    2 Trout stamps. Did I miss something and need to go back and get another?
  24. Ice house license law change

    The 200 foot rule gets me a little but it has to be defined somehow what is occupied and what isn’t. So for a wheelhouse we get to buy tabs to have on the road and a sticker to have it on the ice and go away for a little while. Seems pretty close to double taxation since any LE can find out who the owner is from the current plate. Plus the spear shack that I might want to keep up over the weekend. 2 tags plus license. Combination sports license 2 trout stamps Waterfowl stamps Pheasant stamp Turkey license (stamp now included) Deer license for all seasons The bucket is getting heavy with all the drops in it.
  25. Ice house license law change

    Really no different than using your boat. $14,000 fish house and $14.33/year is going to kill you?? What gets me is at the lake we are at in the summer, mostly out of state people in the campground and all of their boats, never leave that lake and they are all licensed out of state and not in MN. That is a chunk of money the state does not see.
  26. Last week
  27. Great news to hear! Hopefully it will make enough tonight and hope it isn't going to get as warm as they say. Fingers crossed!
