      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 .

Minnetonka - Greys Bay Wednesday Night

Recommended Posts

Tony Holland

Just a note to the 2 boys who decided to park their truck and trailers in water on the boat ramp taking up 2 spots out of the 3....park turn lights off and talk for 5 mins while we had at least 5 boats waiting to load to ...."use your head" I had to finally yell up at them to quit talking and load your boat! Anyway sorry about venting but i do not expect this out of fishermen. Load your boat and talk all night i don’t care. 1 of the boats had a competing fishing website logo across the side of this sparkly boat. UpNorthOutdoors should be ashamed.

There is no such thing as common courtesy at the boat launch, or anywhere else that for that matter. frown.gif

we'll on a positive note. Tonight at the Cooks bay access in mound I docked the boat just as another one was pulling up. They pulled up and dropped a guy off and since i was letting my dog pee from being on the boat for a while, i thought they'd rush to beat me to the access and land. Unfortunately the guy took his time and while i loaded the dog up he casually waited on me. i was so shocked i actually waited myself to see if he was gonna pull out and cut me off, but! for the shocker i pulled out and landed my boat while he slowly pulled up and waited his line in turn. Im not saying this is a huge deal but it is in a way. It nice to see respect, especially when the kid was around the same age as me, 24.

Oh, also last saterday while landing i had a guy jump out of his boat and get my boat winch ready for me while trying to land with 15-25 mph winds gusted into shore. great guy.

then a few weeks ago i pulled up with the trailer to land, being second in line i casually waited while the person in front was putting in their boat(30'+). Well after the boat had slid off the trailer, the person backing the truck in decided he would practice backing his trailer in till absolutely perfect, WHILE I SAT WAITING!!! Well after waiting a good 5 minutes the kid driving got out of his truck and started playing in the water!!!! (Contact Us Please)!!! Seeing this my blood started to boil, i got out and leaned up against my hood and crossed my arms. the kid looks up several minutes later and asked, are you waiting to land!!!??? Once again (Contact Us Please)!!!??? My boat was shored up 15' away from him!!! and i was the only other person there!! DUH!, of course its my boat. Now this makes me think, what a dueche bag!! he then finally proceed to get out of my way.

People can make you wonder sometimes.

Sounds like the same people i was waiting on Wednesday night. One truck had his lights and engine off. I guess he must have been planning to stay for a while. I was just about to honk the horn when one of the guys woke up and realized he had a line of empty trailers waiting on him. I would guess that it wasnt intentional, maybe a senior moment..? confused.gif

      Ice out as far as I could see today, little wind and a cool night tonight. Some wind forecast tomorrow night. It should be fine though. Here is the report   20171119_153600.mp4

      Any ice starting to form again?

      By the look of the forecast, single digit lows at night and no snow. Should it be safe to say that the first of December would be safe for snow machines? Itching to make the trip. Also any recommendations for lodging would be helpful

      Yesterday Finn and I went hunting for ducks and I should have had 4 mallards and pair of woodies.i hit one woodie and it hit the water as Finn went to get it jumped up and flew away. Next weekend I will try again.

      Second week of December is looking good for southern Minnesota, if the current long range forecasts are close to accurate. Maybe even the first week of the month with a little luck.

      I figured I would start up a new thread for us to use for the winter now that things are starting to set up and guys may be starting to creep out on the bays and smaller water.   I did some more poking around on Pike Bay this morning and I don't have anything much new to report. We've got less than an inch of fluffy snow on the ice and things healed up after the warm front this week. I worked my way from shore out into the middle of the bay and ice was relatively uniform between 5.25 and 5.5 inches of nice clear ice. Earlier this week I checked all landings on the Tower end and everything was iced up except for open water way out in Big Bay appearing to mostly be all West of Birch/Ely islands. Not sure if all the recent strong winds from North and South have changed that status though. I'm still sticking with my original guess of December 2 for my first trip off McKinley on 5 inches.   Good luck this winter to all and Be Safe!

      extended forecasts look good up north. We won't have fish-able ice in the metro until at least the 2nd weed in December assuming no dramatic temp changes. The big Expo is Dec1-3 but temps look promising ~1.5hrs north. I wonder if the ability to go fishing might impact the amount of traffic at the show!
