      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 .

I am excited, picked up a couple Limit Creek Rods today, got them set up and ready to go for the morning, dumped my elite st croix rod made the switch, havn't been using it much anyways since I got my first limit creek rod, for me its just the best rod on the market and a very fair price. I'll be backing the old boat in the water around 4am, looks like another sleepless night. cool.gif

Good mixed bagO fish today for my boat.A couple of sauger only one eye a couple of sheephead a very fiesty 25lb flathead and a very nice batch of crappie.Ill be glad once labor day passes as some of the boat traffic will start to die down.All fish today came on crankbaits,except for the crappie which were caught on sixteenth ounce jigs and a small powertube.Trolling depths were 30-36fow and the crappies were found in 8-12fow.hopefully I can get the ok from the CEO of the house to hit it for a few more hours in the morning...Good luck out there....

      Any new ice reports?  Looking For s something about Nicholas or strand

      what if you pull a wheel house to Mn from out of state or are a non resident?
    • Hoey
      I am noodling this same concept over.  I am thinking either a dedicated (portable) battery, since I may be pulling on shore to the ice with the 4-wheeler or a hand, boat-type winch, not always hooked up to the truck.  
    • Hoey
      Copy that!
    • Hoey
      Wow that is great to know.  Thanks for sharing.  Nothing like learning the laws from a CO on the lake.
    • birdguy
      Per the DNR news release dated November 20th:  “Wheeled fish houses, which formerly were considered portable – and thus excluded from licensing requirements for shelters – will now need to be licensed,” said Al Stevens, fisheries survey and systems consultant with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. “In the past, anglers using wheelhouses could use them without shelter licenses as long as they were occupied, including overnight.” The change pursued by the DNR and enabled by 2017 legislation accompanied hunting and angling fee increases. An annual resident shelter license is $16. A three-year license is $43. Owners of houses to be rented pay $31 annually or $88 for a three-year license. A valid license tag must be attached to the outside of the fish house in a readily visible location. ~~~~~ Any ideas on how to go about attaching them since they're no longer stickers like they used to be? Apparently you can't put them inside in a window facing out per the 'outside' requirement of the law.

      so here’s the scoop , as most fishermen know most of the resorts up here started letting wheeler and sleds out on the lake last weekend. That does not mean you can go any where you want as the winds have shifted the ice a couple times and opened up a few cracks . Check with the resort you access and stay in the areas that have been checked out.
      The fishing has been pretty good.
      I have had a few projects that were put off untell I got laid off from the golf course and mother nature again made my projects more challenging. I’m making progress slow and steady and maybe this time I have learned my lesson not to put these off when its 70 and sunny. Chasing breaking 80 at the golf course has got me processed.
      From the looks of it there a good chance we will have all our sleepers on the lake by the 7th of dec.
      My plans are again to go out of Hillmens resort and help Buddy hillmen with his road. He has built a 2 story house that may or may not be on the lake as its huge, I think it can sleep 8 to 10. Its crazy big 14 by 28.

      I appreciate the feedback. We love being out on the ice, so we'll keep plugging away.  Good luck to all this winter and be safe out there!

      I was worried about the wire size too. Thanks ProV. I guess I can’t avoid it.
