      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 am literally losing sleep over thinking and reading about ice fishing. I have my portable setup in my living along with a 5-gallon pail of water to practice my jigging techniques crazy.gif Also had to fire up the auger so my coat would have that 2-stroke fragrance to it.

Mille Lacs is always my first adventure of the new ice fishing season. I don't even care if I catch anything, just so I'm there trying! Of course it's always better if you do catch something, that goes without saying.

A walleye out of Mille Lacs means more to me then a walleye out of anywhere else...same with the perch, Mille Lacs has an aura and mystique all it's own as far as I'm concerned and it has been a special place for me since I was a kid. I can hardly wait!

I was out at JR's and FleetFarm on Wed. and what was I buying? Stuff that might catch perch on Mille Lacs! I rerigged all my ice rods and what was I thinking about while I was doing it? Mille Lacs! smile.gif

Hey Paul,

They guy who pulls our houses out of Cove Bay is saying that the water level is extreemly low and boats are having trouble launching. Is this going to make getting on the ice a problem if there are a lot of exposed rocks? If nothing else, we will be going up to check out the early ice action for Northerns in the bay in the portable.

Glock,

The thing about exposed rocks is the sun will heat them up and they weaken the ice around them. This also happens in any shallow water area and is part of the reason that the ice around shore always goes first. We have the same thing up here with Doe Island. We always stay a good distance from it.

Maybe it wouldn't be such an issue if your ice fishing buddies would quit calling and emailing about the fishhouse projects, etc.? grin.gif

I think you've done your fair share of "spreading the sickness" as well.

Paul - that's quite the Chateau de Appledoorns! Are you renting it out as a cabin in summer too? shocked.giftongue.gif

Another reason to pass up them public access' and find a trustworthy resort with maintained roads to head out of. It's almost that time!

Hi Skies and eyes, Did you see any fish? What type of rig do you run? I thought I saw someone at the landing when I went by. There are still some die hard muskie anglers out there. While I was roofing the bait shop today there were a couple that stopped by looking for bait. Must be a hot bite somewhere.

Sorry, I am going to twist this post just a little bit. In my anticipation of the upcoming season. I went to the local sporting goods store to check out the new Ice fishing set. Lots of really cool new stuff, but I was wondering what were some of your favorite Mille Lacs lures, gear, must haves? Anyone see the next hot thing? What is it? I have just about everything and know what my old stand by's are, but I am looking for some new tricks.

Hey Jason,

I run a 2025 Pro-V. Getting winterized on wed:( Was out Sunday night looking for the monster muskie of the year and ended up with some dull hooks (from catching rocks)...I figured it was time to switch gears. Phils had 2.5 inches of ice in their harbor, but Garrison public was open, but brought a pole to push my boat through the shallow stuff. Water temp was 34-35

After driving by there the last number of days for Thanksgiving get togethers you may havegot out just in time. Ice pretty much covers the shorelines now. I guess it is time to get the jigging spoons ready.
