      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 .

There's Burntside and Snowbank if you are referring to the Ely area along with some others if you are up to an adventure in the BWCA. Search prior posts on laker fishing through the ice and you will get all of the info you need.

Ely and the Gunflint Trail areas have Lake Trout. Some are drive to lakes and a lot more within the BWCA. Theres been a lot of info posted about Lake Trout lakes and techniques to get them year round.

There are also a couple lakes around Grand Rapids with some lake trout.

Speaking of ashland...was considering chequamegan bay...how thick does the ice get there? I hear it's productive for multiple species, but what do people usually target in the winter?

Lakers, Splake, walleye, perch, smallies, coho and even a rainbow every once in a while.

Takes a while for the ice to get good but it can be worth it. BIG Lakers through the ice are like no other fish.

If ya need more info I highly suggest ya look up Jim Hudson and his "On the spot" Guide service. He is a staffer here and knows his stuff down there. Check out his web page and see some pigs they get. WOW!

Yep, Yep, Yep,,..... Many places on the CQ Bay to fish once the ice goes in ( read: new years till Feb 28th ).

Many days, in 30' or less you'll go down without a fish & many days you will get the slamma' jamma' of species on the bay. As NL said if your fishing deep on ice you have a good chance for Lakers.

Read up in the Wisconsin fourm from past winters & find what youz like...

As Minnesotaions I think we pass up the great fishing on the CQ bay-- or the S. Shore for that matter-- because we are worried about getting 'up north'.

For my money fishing the salmanoids- or Trout - Ashland is the place....

Perch on Mille Lacs....

Crappies on Red.....

Lakers on the Apostles....

Heres a coaster thats on my wall from near Houghten Point...& a rainbow thats not so steelie...

      I'll also be up this weekend. Fishing Friday and Saturday and putting the boat away on Sunday. Where are people finding the eyes and what are they biting on? Jigs, rigs, slip bobers? I don't do led core or jigging raps. I'll be on Daisy Bay, so any place from Big to Frazer is in play. Thanks!

      Got two drake woodies took some advice from some great shooters and I only shot like 5 shells. Finn retrieved my ducks but got muddy so he got a bath.

      I went hunting with river rat this morning. I got two drake woodies and Chris got one. Finn was being a pain in the butt and would not fetch Chris’s duck. Finn however fetched both of my ducks. Finn flushed a bunch of woodcocks on our walk out. Finn got muddy today

      I just purchased the Humminbird Autochart Pro to use wth my Humminbird 999. After going through the 'installation guide' and the 'get started guide' that's included in the Autochart PC program, I can't find what I need to do to get this on my model Humminbird. Anyone have experience? Thanks, Paul

      Did well this morning on big bay with gold spinners. 24-26 feet off the edge of a reef. Decided since they were biting we'd try the west end to see if we could catch some big fish. Put up a big zero out there. Guess they behave a bit different from end to end.  On a small reef out west had a guy pull up on us, throw a marker right on the fish and camp out right there. Kind of tough to fish spinners when someone does that. What is the etiquette on this lake when someone does that? Just fish where you want even if you run right up on them or in between them and the marker? I see the thousand dollar  depthfinder in the back of the boat, just mark a waypoint and keep the marker in the boat man. Really grinds my gears. Whoops...sorry for the rant   Never had that happen on the east end though
