      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 .

Just got home from the river. Spent about 4 hours in a honey hole trying to catch some cats, but nothing. Decided to switch things up and I am glad I did. Got a couple of walleyes,a small snot rocket (northern and on almost every cast I would latch into a nice smallie. Perch color spinner bait was the ticket! Also seen the biggest redhorse I have ever seen swim next to the boat. Hope you guys have some luck this weekend. I am out!

I was out last night, fighting the boat traffic. Struggled to catch fish while bouncing over waves. Caught quite a few smallies and a bunch of sheephead with a jig and a crawler. First time all year I havent caught at least one walleye or sauger though...

Got down to the river in the pouring rain this morning what a light show, the two guys from church were real troopers go out in that, to me its just another day. Fishing was good except the fish that were bitting were the wrong kind, I hate to say it but I have my first blank in the walleye dept this year frown.gif, sure had one heck of a streak going though. One of the guys with me caught two nice walleyes 16 1/4 and 17, we all caught bass, sunfish, sheephead, rock bass and channel cats, still had a great time, both fish were caught on crawlers 22' Looking forward to fishing in the morning. cool.gif

Walli! IS HUMAN! I was starting to think he was some sort of super-human fishing machine, but he does have off days like the rest of us. Please don't take that the wrong way Walli1, I still look up to your experience and river knowledege. Heck, my "off-days" sometimes last from July to Sept.!

I'll be down there tomorrow am., I'm gonna head out of the public launch in Hastings instead of the Bluffs. That should save me the run around due to construction on 95.Se ya on the water.

Just getting the final things ready to go out in the morning, my son is going out at 3:00 with me, should be on the water by 3:45 at the latest, just love that early morning stuff! yeah today was a sad day, first time this year not catching a walleye, it happens and its hard to swallow but there's always tomorrow, at least I did have walleyes in the box today, so far this year I've had eyes in the boat every time out thats pretty nice cool.gif see you on the water!!

I don't know Walli, I think it still might count when you took two rookies out and someone in your boat boated some eye's. I think it's harder to get rookies to get them than to bring them up yourself. Good luck in the morning.

Thanks Sandmannd! Well this morning my son and I made a memory that will last a life time and he'll have a story of the big fish to tell and show the photo for life! Check this big buffalo head out my 15 year old son got in on 4 pound test fireline,it took over a hour to get it in the boat, sure put a bend in the limit creek rod, rod looks cool bent like that, it was 33" long had a grirth of 24" and weighed a shade over 27 pounds. I'm holding the fish for my son because he didn't want to lift it up. PICT0202.jpg What a fish!! O yeah I kept two nice eyes also, sure had a blast and its something my son and I will always share! cool.gifcool.gif

always!! One great thing about the river is that you can target one species and end up catching many different species. Once my son gets old enough, he'll be coming along with me.

      Sorry dude I tried but this page isn't most active with facebook groups being the biggest way most people share ice thickness in a realtime way.  There's only one way to really know and that's grab a spud bar and start hitting as you walk and drilling holes to see.

      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.
    • FirstIce
      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.
