      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 .

Deep Tail Dancers

Recommended Posts

Schnauzer

I have fished a lot of open water with Reef Runners. I want to add the deep Tail Dancers this year. For those of you regularly pulling deep Tail Dancers on Mille Lacs, which of the two sizes do you prefer or most often use?

Thanks much!!

I would purchase the TD 9 & 11 to cover water depths of 20-30 ft. Perch, and the new rainbow color should work well.

The td11 in the Blue top chrome sides is my confidence lure. I wouldn't troll without one out. I got the td9 but haven't used it yet.

I own both sizes and I use the TD 11 most of the time. They dive faster and will get way down there if ever needed.

Rapala has come out with alot of the chrome colors that would work well. I have the blue chrome, but haven't had a chance to try it yet.

thanks for the help everyone. I used my lunch hour to start off my deep tail dancer collection with 4 #11's. The colors were a little picked over but I did get two silver flash, one blue flash, and one hot flash.

I'm looking forward to having more guys in the boat so I can run two Deep Tail Dancers and two Reef Runners at the same time. Otherwise I will just have to run one and one (with my usual two anglers in the boat)or switch around if it just me. I've done my share of open water trolling on Mille Lacs, I just haven't expanded my horizons beyond Reef Runners 'til now.

Don't forget firetiger.

I prefure the #11's.

Deep tail dancers are a great bait, but I wouldn't be caught dead on Mille Lacs without a silver shiner imitation shad rap in the water. This is by far the best trolling bait I have used on Mille Lacs. The new glass shad raps are good too. Good Luck all.

      wealthwood had1.5 last weekend, i saw no one out but 1 person on the whole west side last wsat afternoon. thi week the resorts on the north end and east are reporting decent ice. check with the resorts before you go out. id stay away from public accesses now and follow a staked road.

      Have you fished out there before? Is it worth putting some time in on the ice? Thanks-
    • walleyewalby
      so went to go scope it out, 15 trucks on the northside, wheelers and houses out. Baxter is packed. last nights fresh snow is showing alot of active cracks too... i may wait a coujple days for blue and check out baxter instead.

      Anyone know of the ice conditions in the oak narrows area?
    • blue gill hunter
      Has anyone heard of any ice reports on Big Marine?
    • dindunuffins
      I heard  6" or so around terrys..  id figure public access must be close to the same?
    • gimruis
      Dude, seriously just stay off the ice until its safer.  No fish is worth risking your life for.

       Ice is scary on blue. I was out last weekend fishing next to open water north end is kinda sketchy still my buddy has been there every day this week. Still cant get close to the points only 1 inch there. Thicker by north end but its all older ice from the first freeze lots of cracks. The bay to the east towards the points and whole south end were wide open last sunday. Had 4 inches right next to it we fished as close to the point as we could get. We were 40-50 ft from open water and we got one eye. But ive never been so scared on ice before it was cracking very badly very loud and could feel the ice shifting. The walk back to access in the dark had my heart pounding and i didnt tjink we would make it back without one uf us goin through but we did make it.
