      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 .

Owasso Action?

Recommended Posts

JBMasterAngler

Any action on owasso lately? I have a half day to hit up a close lake and am wondering if I might have a chance at some crappies, bass, or maybe even a muskie?

JB, can't help you with a recent report, but generalities hold true all year on Owasso. Crappies are small & plentiful if you run into them. There are some nice bass - they're hit & miss for me, I've had good days & skunks within a week's time. Muskies I am ignorant of, although a friend who fishes them said there are a few decent ones in there.

Well I didn't make it out, woke up in the morning and it was raining and way too windy. Oh well, I'll probably hit it in the winter...it's a good lake to go to when I am short of time.

I was out on Owasso saturday trolling cranks, spinners, and spoons for walleyes or maybe even a bonus tiger, but no luck. All the hoards of jetskis, pleasure crafters, and a*@holes were back out with the warm weather though, so I didn't expect to catch much! I will be sure to never go back out there again on a nice weekend day again, but when your free time is on those days, I guess you have to get out when you can. I should have gotten up earlier!

if is makes you feel better, the same people that are out there on jet skis are out there in the winter on their snow machines and wheelers. even had a guy out there tearing it up on his motor bike last year. i think they find it more interesting to run up within 10 feet of a guy when he is sitting in his portable.

like i always say, the courtesy extended to others is really not what it used to be.

Great. Well I guess I won't go out here during the "normal hours" again. If anyone gets within 10 feet of my portable with a motorized vehicle, they better hope they don't come back again. I have no problem chucking something heavy at them if they are going to be that unruly and disrespectful. That is complete B.S. that the crowd of "teasers" and "hotdogs" feel the need to test the patience of people who just want to enjoy the outdoors peacefully.

I think there is a state law that requires motorized vehicles maintain a set distance from ice fishermen.

I think it might be 30 feet?

I seem to remember coming by a thread about portibles getting buzzed by wheelers.

My memory is fuzzy on the thread, but I do remember they had some luck with it. That enough portables were buzzed and enough cell phone calls went in about a specific vehicle to get a cop on the lake.

But what the hey anyways. The metro lakes are one great big party on ice anyways, it's all good. grin.gif

I havent fished that lake for years and years now.. But I would assume the bass action would still be good.

      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!

      There's preliminary testing then if flagged it gets shipped to a lab I believe in CO to verify the results.

      10 day forecast doesn't show anything with low temps below 15 degrees.  It might make ice but it wont be making it necessarily fast.

      Thanksgiving would be nice...but first week of December still works!   Rogers on Red is already allowing wheelers and sleds...no side by sides yet.

      A 30-foot-tall white spruce, selected as the state’s official Christmas tree, was cut down today in the General C.C. Andrews State Forest, near Willow River.  The tree will be set up at the governor’s residence, 1006 Summit Ave., St. Paul, around 9 a.m., Monday, Nov. 20. The tree will be lit Monday, Nov. 27. DNR staff and the Conservation Corps of Minnesota cut the tree on the Friday before Thanksgiving each year from one of 59 state forests. However, the search for just the right tree begins months before. DNR foresters keep an eye out for a tall tree that’s nicely shaped and well filled out. It also needs to be in a location where it will not be damaged when dropped and then easily pulled out and loaded onto a trailer. Minnesota’s state forests provide clean air and water, recreational opportunities, wildlife habitat, timber and special forest products. This year, small businesses are making 150,000 wreaths with balsam boughs harvested from state forest lands. The estimated annual sales for Minnesota companies producing holiday wreaths exceed $23 million and Minnesota’s public lands support a large share of this economic activity. Each holiday season, half a million Christmas trees are harvested from private tree farms in Minnesota, contributing about $30 million to the state’s economy. For each tree harvested, one to three trees are planted. Real Christmas trees store carbon during their lifespan. They can be chipped for mulch when the season is over, making them an environmentally friendly choice.
      More information and details on viewing the tree is on the state Christmas tree page. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
