      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 .

Howdy, dropped by your place after yesterday evenings fishing to have a barley pop and visit a bit with Northlander. Dropped him some minnows and while fishin out dead ones a 20 pound charcoal grey Kitty Couger wandered up and did some minnow chowing. I boated a Walrus last nite up your way, 30.5 inch no pinch Widebody, and when I grabbed my digital out of the truck to show the pics I left the door ajar.....When we went to leave I noticed we had a "stowaway" all curled up on my buddies fuzzy hooded parka in the back of the Durango! The guy was quite cozy and did'nt wanna leave. My wife would've loved him but I figured I had better leave him with you!

Curious, did you buy the place on the NW side of Little Oak?

I can not believe you stood out there for the better part of 2 hours and didn't even say hey! I just about came out to get your rig out of the middle of the parking lot but had been cold & wet for 3 days on the island and could not pry myself from the Lazy Boy and wood stove.

That cat, Hal, thinks he owns the place and any piece of equipment setting still here. He is on full feed with a strong supplement of minnows and cheeks. Tough life!

One of our customers recognized him on the shore at Frontier and brought him home, I had to go out to Adrians and pick him up once, and he road in my boat to Birchdale. He was not happy about staying in the Bronco all day. He has been gone for days at a time but must like it here cause he keeps coming back.

Heard you popped a pig! Should be hearing that more each day now. Maybe my turn this afternoon?

Our island is about 20 miles east of Little Oak or 10 miles NW of Morson. Tucked under the SW corner of Miles island.

Lots of work to do out there but is way cool! Having trouble staying on task being surrounded by all that up there. Constantly find myself just gazing out at it. Was sizing up a project on a deck the other evening and a 4' muskie came up about 20 feet away. Makes it hard to concentrate.

Will have to get you up there some time but don't even think about pulling in here again without saying hey!

I see the River continues to rise. How is the clarity of the river holding up? Any concerns about it getting too Muddy for the fishing this weekend? Or has the runoff been flushing through rather cleanly?

Hi Doug I finally got signed in on this site.... I caught a couple of 15" on Wed night down river about 4 miles from my house. I had countless little ones. Can't wait for the rain to stop so the current slows a little. I was in 11-12' in slow current, anchored, using a bare hook with a red bead and a white glow bead with a gold hook.... Frozen shiner of course... Sound familiar? lol Talk to ya later, I dropped off some firewood for ya.

      Any new updates on the ice thickness.  Looking to get out on walk-able ice this weekend.  Seems like the darn winds blows 45 mph every day lately.
    • nofishfisherman
      Thanks for the reply, I'll check them out.

      I went out on Horseshoe on Sunday and where the ice remained from the first freeze it is a solid 6 in.  Where it recently froze over last week its was 3 inches at best.  Now that we have snow cover it will be hard to find that line.  I was out with the wheeler on sunday but stayed on the "old" ice that I knew was "safe".  I wouldn't use a wheeler from the access or go exploring quite yet.  Plan on heading back out Thursday and will try and give an update
    • Rancid Crabtree
      went out last night. 2.5-3" of solid clear ice. Single digits last night and still pretty cold today...wouldn't be surprised to find another inch when i head out this evening.  Forecast temps have been lowered a few degrees so we shouldnt be losing any ice through the week/weekend. Hopefully making a bit more each night. Breaking out the popup this weekend!

      So there's a guy that wants to trade his Frabill 3 man side door entry flip over ice house for my one man clam Legend thermal Ice House. Thinking I might go for it but was wondering if I should stay away from Frabill for any reason? Wondering if I could get any input and if this is a good deal or not. Thanks in advance.

      Total agree Topwater mix rules for a kid learning to muskie fish.  Kayak ~~~ At 14 years can by now control the craft & cast pretty well so mix of small to medium size bucktails and a glider or two kick it any time.  Host of things to purchase out there but really no need. Keep it simple, have fun, learn the lake, the fish, the food....he will enjoy it an be hooked for long long time.  And will he succeed ~ YES indeed ~ 96 & 3/4 percent ~  guaranteed.   : )     Keep on rocken!    T

      I used to fish Lake Shakopee regularly.  I did awesome catching largemouth bass there with good average size, and never had any competition.  A couple years ago, they did some construction upstream by the start of the river at the base of Vineland Bay for road construction and they had to drop water levels to do it.  The flow rate never came back to normal.  Then they took out Buckmore Dam in the state park at the base of Lake Ogechie which also altered the flow through that area.  I tried it once each the past two years and only caught 1 bass each time, in addition to about 40 pike.  Every single pike was the same size, about 20-22 inches.  Just snake after snake.  Slime city.  I think the alteration of the river flow through that area has permanently ruined the bass fishing there.

      Just goes to show that if you put the time in to eplore new places just to see if there is anything in said body of water..... it can have very good payouts. The body of water that we got the eyes out of i have never fished before. Grew up next to it basically its only 10 min from the house. When they started hitting all fish were caught one after another i have never had walleyes through the ice bite like they did. A new experiance and i was able to share it with friends. Hope everyone is being safe out there. 
    • gimruis
      There's no reason to go on the frozen lake when you are catching fish like that in the open water of a river.
    • crappie king 42
      No this is not red lake. This was a local spot in the cambridge princeton milaca area.  Nice solid 14-17 inch walleyes nice and healthy and they tasted delicious
