      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 .

I guess we aren't really sure about where we want to fish, but Gull, Round or maybe Pelican would be ok I guess. I was just more curious if there were any people around that rented sleeper houses. I usually plan a trip for the 2nd week in January for myself and 3 other guys. We have gone to Red, Mille Lacs, Cass, Lake of the Woods, etc. in the past and would like to try something different. The kind of fish isn't important to us. We like catching crappies, walleyes, Northerns, Perch, whatever. We rarely keep any fish, maybe a meal. It is just fun getting together on the ice with some old friends.

Hi walleyes, Give us call at the bait shop. A couple of our fishing guides rent out some fish houses. We can put you in contact with them. They offer a great service and I know they work hard to keep folks on top of the best bite going. Our number is 218-963-2401.

I know this is a late post, but I have been away from reading the Forum few weeks and was just reviewing posts. If you wish to catch walleyes at night, in a comfortable house, in an area that has FISH, then you can do no better than WalleyeDan. I fish in my father's house on another lake(not a sleeper) each winter for 2 weeks(every day dawn to dusk) or more on annual trip to Brainerd--just to fish. For 3 years I have always rented Dan's houses when I wanted a sleeper. His service is top notch. He has a real fan in my 11 year old Granddaughter who has a WalleyeDan patch prominently posted in her room in Carson City, Nevada.

Nope, I am not asked to write this--just telling about a good experience!

Hi Wahoo,

Hope all is well in Nevada. Thank you for the good words. We are making ice up here this a.m. (0 degrees at the moment) but the wind howled most of the night so I'm guessing that the big lakes are still fishable with a boat. That is if you can find a ramp, O.K. maybe we should just say it's ice season!

We will be "On the Ice" again this winter. We will have some houses (permanent, portable and most likely a Sno Bear or Sno Fox). Guiding will be the focus this winter and we are looking to reach out a little more and fish the entire area, not just the immediate Gull Lake/Nisswa area. Should be fun and it looks like it's going to fire up sooner than later. The BIG ice fishing show is this weekend in St. Paul, but after that things will start really happening. Hope you are coming up again, if so give us a ring.

Dan,

I'll be out on the 26th and fish a couple of weeks. I'll give you a call. What about the Vikes!! Will they ever get it together?

Sounds good. I'm not sure about the vikes. Wouldn't it be something if we got to play the Packers again? I don't even know if that is a possibility as far as the playoff road, but if we do get to play them I think we will win!

Talk to you later,

Walleyedan

      Pearl Lake has been lights out for crappies in that 10+ inch range this year, finally,  find 13-16 fow and then drill holes until you see suspended fish. When you find them I like a 1/10oz. Swedish pimple (silver/glow) with 2 waxies, keep it above the fish and they’ll come up for it.

      I heard reports Friday of 3-5 inches out of Bayport.

      I'm on vacation until January 2nd if anyone wants to meet up and go fishing let me know I've got all my own gear 95% of the time I fish alone. Willing to drive anywhere or help with gas or what ever. Going to try a local lake in the morning for some eyes and panfish unless someone has any other suggestions. Mostly a CPR guy but it's also nice to occasionally bring some home for the family.

      Still pheasant hunting and still seeing lots of birds!  Went out an afternoon this past week and saw about 75 in 2.5 hours.  Went home with my 3 roosters.  Everything is froze good now so its easy walking and there's fresh snow.

      Welcome to FM, Some lakes near you that are good and have some quality  are Ann,Knife and Fish to the East and the Briggs chain to the West.  Look for green vegetation or mud basin bug hatches for action. 
    • monstermoose78
      Sure helps to find them when you have some of the top panfish anglers around helping
    • IceHawk
      Good fish Rick way to find some quality fish in a highly pressured area. Takes skill to be able to accomplish that. Maybe run into you one of these days out there
    • IceHawk
      Nice fish guys looked like a good time was had . That lake has some quality for sure. Figured you guys would dial them in.
    • Jory
      Not new to ice fishing but I can't seem to find the fish anymore around my neck of the woods in foley mn. so if anyone could give great insight of lakes times and maybe hints of baits and area of the lake would be awesome.
