      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 .

Making my first trip to LOW for ice fishing. Four of us have settled on Arnesen's as our destination for a sleeper. Any positive or poor experiences with Arnesen's?

We first stayed with them back in the early 90's, ice fishing in their sleepers, and they did a great job of keeping you on fish. If you weren't catching them where you where at, they'd move you to them. Also, just a hint, don't be afraid to jump in the shallower day houses either, before they get the day people out there. they were pretty decent about us fishing them early, caught alot of bigger walleyes that way!! Good Luck. The Bumble

The best way to get put on fish, or get moved to fish is to tip the guides. Works for me every time.

You don't need to tip them to get moved. I have fished with them for 11 season now and have never had to tip to get moved. If the fish aren't biting they ask if I want to move and we move. That one of the best thing about Arensen's I think they run the best operation on the lake.

I read the policy and don't see what I did wrong, but the poster asked for others' opinions so here is mine without any extra explanation. I would not recommend Arneson's to anyone. Clear enough. My e-mail is in my profile if you want details.

I appreciate the all the feedback. I'm just looking forward to being on LOW for my first time. We've been doing the Upper Red deal for the past 3 years and it's getting a little boring. Would really love to do some spring fishing on the river at LOW based on what I'm reading from other posts.

I've been coming to this forum for a year now to get some great info, just finally decided to join in. Thanks to all that provide a great break in my day from the meat-ginder of work. It allows me to day dream about the drag sounding and the anticipation of seeing that Walter come up for the first time to see how big he is. Can't wait!

Yep, this is the best place on the ice. These people actually care for their customers. A short warm and roomy ride to your heated house. Ice workers checking on you all day, to see if you need anything. Fish...

      I have owned a place on Lake Vermilion(WE) since 2011 and have absolutely enjoyed every visit and season on the lake.  Our knowledge of the lake and fishing patterns have grown tremendously.  However, this experience has not translated success onto the ice.  We catch some fish, but feel like we should be doing better.  Typically we use small gear 1/16th or 32nd jigs with minnows, Spoons with just a minnow head or when we go after panfish we'll use wax worms.  We fish all the same spots and don't catch nearly as big or many fish.  When we do catch most of our fish, it's typically on mud flats and we drill a lot of holes.  Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

      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!
