      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 .

12FOW!!!

I've been catching some nice ones just off willow point. from the landing go out to 12 FOW turn left, as you pass willow point the break from 5-12 will become very sharp find the weed on the break. That is where some Bass are. The point straight across from best point is a spot where we have cought a 3lb Bass the last two days.

If you want some good fun troll a gold and orange Hot & Tot (The smaller size) in 12 fow. We had a super day out there today doing just that. We had a double of a 17.5" Walleye and a 27" Northern. The largest fish was a 31" Northern. We did catch Bass doing this also.

The day after a front went through and it was the best day on Tetonka this year. What's the deal with that?

You're gonna get a lot of tight lips on this one. The Ultimate Bass and Southern MN Bass tours will both be there in the next 6 weeks. You'll probably see some pre-fishing going on at every depth level over the next month and a half.

A 3# avg won't put you in the cash out there. Last year almost 22# won the S.M.B.T. (5 fish). It took almost 18# to take the bottom check. Good luck.

Not every time. Madison in the Ultimate was humbling. Wind did us in. I would have that weighing in 20-14 on Lura would have put us in a little better Team of the Year position in the SMBT.

I saw pics of a 7-13 bass that came out of Tetonka over the weekend. (on another site) I guess it was weighed on a couple scales at Best Point and then released.

I think we are up by 7 to the next closest in the SMBT after 3 of 5 events. After that there is another 5 or 6 point difference. Crossing fingers that the luck holds up.

How is the bass fishing on Madison Lake? What type of weights normally win the tourneys that are held there? I haven't ever tried Madison for bass and was just curious as to what I could expect and if it is worth a shot.

Madison the last 3-4 years has been right around 15# on 5. Years before the winner was more like 18+ with many teams in the 15-17# range.

Yep, luck and the fact that the two-time reigning Champs split didn't hurt at all. tongue.gif (You'll be back next here LC, we'll be waiting to see who the partner is.)

Just wanted everyone to know that I took both of my younger brothers out to Tetonka on Saturday and we caught at least 40 bass, many 3.5 - 4.5lbs. It was a lot of fun. I agree with kato guy, you will need a at least a 4lb average to make the money on that lake. I would of been at around 21 lbs for my 5 biggest, and we only fished from 7am to around noon. This lake reminds me of clear lake in waseca years ago. I used to fish it a lot before I started fishing tournaments and we would catch numerous 4 - 5 lb bass every time out. Tetonka is my new favorite lake... Also, I gave my brother a lot of crap as we were fishing due to the fact that he had a 200 foot lot on the lake and sold it last year. Oh well...

      2 Trout stamps.  Did I miss something and need to go back and get another?

      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.

      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.
    • Fishing Frenzy
      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!

      Was hoping to come up with a 1/2 ton and a 16ft wheel house Dec. 1st.  Any thoughts if the ice will be think enough to go out of Hillmens?

      Took a drive around Lake Osakis earlier. It appears the cold and calm winds we had last night made a lot of ice. From what I could tell it appeared the lake was locked up except there was a small open area in Manthey's Bay that had a couple trumpeter swans swimming around and another small area in front of Holiday Resort that had some ducks swimming around. The rest was all ice, thin ice. Don't know if it will hold up over the next 5 days. High of 38 tomorrow, 46 and showers on Friday with high winds, 36 Saturday, 44 Sunday and 44 Monday. The lows over night aren't going to dip very low. If it was a few inches thick I wouldn't be to concerned, but as thin as it is, could be bad.

      Not by itself it won't but they raised the price on licenses for everything. Once you add it all up I'll bet you never got that big of a raise at your job. I paid for an ATV license since they first came out and we didn't get squat for it for over 20 years. What a joke, not to mention debacles like Mille Lacs Lake management. AAARRGGHHH!!  I gotta quit now before I pop a vein.
    • JerkinLips
      Thanks for the updates.  Think I will play it safe and wait until Thursday, November 30 to go out from McKinley Park.
    • Finnish Flash
      7" of good clear ice in the couple holes I drilled in Pike Bay this morning.   
    • cookie129
      not sure why its not showing I'm posting? Anyway walking out on the south shore gets you in deeper water quicker. Yes they do bite on red lake during the dark. I hardly ever go on the lake early ice unless Buddy Hillmen needs my help. Once I drive on the lake with blue thunder I will be on her just about everyday un  tell mid march if mother nature cooperates.
