      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 .

Hey Woodland going to be spending a week on Miltona this coming week. Wondering if you have any words of wisdom on where the walleyes are biting and what the guys at your place have been using to get them? Was out there last Saturday morn and didn't get anything besides a bunch of Large Mouths, then we got chased off by the wind. tongue.gif

Hey Alex1,

Sorry for the delay. This is our busy time of year. Just to set the record strait, I don't want you to get the wrong idea, I rarely have word of "wisdom" when it comes to fishing. crazy.gif

Here is my two cents. I am sure someone else can tell you another technique that is working better... It seems like the best bet for quality is trolling cranks. I hear of some walleye being caught with slip bobbers and lindys with leeches, a few dandys, but a lot of 14"ers.

However, for the quality fish, I would stop at the tackle shop on the way up and spend a few bucks on an assortment of crank baits. It also eleminates the rock bass, perch and sunfish.

I was out last night for the first time in a while and caught two, after sunset. One 16 and one just over 22, one in about 17' and one in about 13'.

Hope this helps a little! Let us know how it goes.

Good Luck,

Steve

Woodland, every little bit helps when it comes to fishing tips. Thanks for the reply, and I'll be sure to send a post when we get back as to how we did. Sounds like its going to be a scorcher out there this next week, sounds like it will be a good week to sleep in for the morning and sit in the shade with a beverage of choice during the afternoon wink.gif, then hit it hard just before sunset. grin.gif

Well I'm home again and it was a tough bite. Managed to catch one walleye each morning using a Chartruese and Silver shad rap, that was a keeper. They ran the 15"-16" range, so nice fish for the fry pan. The evening bite was pretty well non-exsisting for me. Managed a lot of Bass and and a few northerns, and a couple of small muskie that would follow when you checked for weeds. The fish I did manage to catch were excellent for the shore lunch one night, with a few fried potatos ooo.gif. Will be coming up again hte later part of August, and agin last part of Sept. Hopefully with the lower temps and likewise ater temps the fish will be coporating a little better. All in all we had a great week, temps were a little outrageous on Wed. but still managed to find things to keep cool and enjoy. Monday morning was interesting when the fog got real thick and I had forgotten to grab my GPS before i went out. Did manage to find my way back by keeping the sun to my back going very slow. crazy.gif

      Be looking at these two general areas. Thanks for heads up on south end.

      My son and I fished from 8 - 4 yesterday out of Beacon Harbor.  It was super windy so we couldn't be as mobile.  We caught 6 eyes, all under 17", in about 8' of water and another 10 after we moved out to 11'. Also a few big Perch.  Only 2 fish on dead stick and the rest jigging.  Gold or pink seemed to work the best.  Fun day! Nels

      OK thanks.  I haven’t had an issue yet.  I just got low on powder and needed primers so I decided to try the Blackhorn 209 now.  I remembered reading this post. At the C store there were plenty of Triple 7 and Remington 209 primers in the ML supplies @ 9-10 bucks/100.  The shotgun primers were running running low though and I grabbed the last 100 pack.  They’re only 4 bucks/100.  I figured it would be a cheap experiment if nothing else.

      Not a hundred percent on the age but it's a Frabill Excursion and both are in brand new condition. Not to worried about the weight of it it won't be more than a handful of times of pulling it out before driving my truck out with it. The price difference between the two is what I was looking at.

      Does anyone have any input on the kdrill on a gas auger? I have seen a few people use this setup. Do you need a special adapter to use it?
    • Wanderer
      Are they both the same age?  Equal condition?  Do you hand drag or machine pull?  Weight will matter a lot. You really have to consider how you plan to use the house.  Happiness with the houses performance is the biggest key.   Otherwise it appears to be a trade from a $480 house to a $700 house based on new house prices if I looked at the right Frabil.

      It's not thermal. How's frabill's customer service in case you break a poll or something?
    • going4it
      The only problem I had with my frabill was its weight. It was a tank to pull and tough to put in the bed of the truck.

      Anyone else think the number of people ice fishing in the last 5 years has grown greatly in our area? To me it has and to me it seems alot harder now to find a spot of your own, or spots that have been pasted down on a lake that there arnt 5 to 50 people trying to fish! Gps doesn't help the cause either, I wonder what the future of ice fishing and the fish/ crappie population is going to look like in the next 5 to 10 years. Last year kinda shocked me to by the number of people out partying out on cedar and even the sound of subs going by in cars on the ice.. like really??! Could see the look of what is wrong with people from dads and familys out with their kids. Sorry about the rant

      I found exactly the same thing today. It was a steady 5" walking to the fishing spot. 3" of ice on the spot, if that. Cracks everywhere. Water pushing out of holes I had drilled. Not good.
