      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 .

Anyone planning on heading up this weekend? I'm planning on going Saturday night and looking forward to the extra hour of fishing due to daylight savings time. Also looking forward to having a few less boats on the water.

If things go as planned, I'll be there Friday and Saturday night.

When does daylight savings time "kick in"?

I bought alot of Huskey jerk last weekend and was not able to get out and use it!

The boat is ready and I mite go out! I might give up deer hunting for another chance at Mille Lacs!

It should be pretty slow at the launches? I have plenty of venny for the next year and I know I will get plenty from others this year! Might as well save the hunting Lic. Fee's and use twords gas to the big pond!

I'll know later on this week what my plans are so you could call me before Friday if you'd like to find out whether or not I'll be up there.

The seminar went really well. Great discussion.

I have not been out to ML since July. Is there still a problem with shallow landings?

What is the best landing to go out of on the west side?

The public landings are low to, in some cases, not usable. If I was to pick the best public landing on the W side, I would say Pike Point, right in Garrison.

I ended up booking some guide trips down here for the weekend so I won't be making the trek North; at least not until Wednesday when I leave for Bambi camp.

Good luck to all this weekend. No reason it won't be a good one.

I'll give you a call tomorrow afternoon. I started to mark a lot of bait in our late season hot spot last weekend. Looks like the weather is going to be pretty good. I'm hoping for a better bite than we had last weekend. We'll have three guys in the boat tomorrow night which will allow us to try a lot of baits.

I wouldn't launch at a public ramp. Pay $10 at a private ramp. It makes things so much easier especially if the wind picks up. We launch at Terry's. Good depth and easy to find at 2 in the morning.

D, sounds great! Do you still have that doctored HJ that pulled our biggest fish last year on that unreal night? I have a doctored FT I call "bloody nose". It was a hot bait last Wed for a couple hours.

We will start up there with you but we are going to go searching for those pods of 27-30 inch sumos later in the night. We haven't picked up a 29 or better yet this fall, we are overdue. From what I've read and heard the fish still seem to be keying on small yoy perch but that may change tonight. wink.gif

Thanks for the tips on the landings guys. The wind will dictate if I go to the big pond or not with my 16'er. As nice as it is out right now it looks like I missed a good opportunity this morning.

I hope to make out there tonight.

Good luck this weekend.

      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.
