      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 cant wait till ice up. this is a great lake for multi species and an all around good time. it seems to me that anywhere i fish in the winter seems to be good, even of structure and the bars. I just usually avoid the shallows and the over persued avearage scunnies. It wont be long and i will be visitin to see if there is any walts or crappies left. Good fishin to all!!!

So has any ice formed on Minnewaska yet? I am guessing it won't be long. I am coming up on Friday night. We still have a boat lift in the water and I am wondering if I will have to chop it out of the ice on Saturday.

You shouldn't have to do any chopping yet, we've had enough wind lately to keep things open.

Heya fishing. I hope it won't be long. I am off to pick up my new 4-wheeler this morning and then it is time to start working on the house. I sure wish that I grew corn and raised cattle so I had more money to spend and more time to fish grin.gif Stop by some time and we will swap lies.

Yeah, It's always fun to keep people guessing. wink.gif Sounds like your son-in-law talked you into one too!! What did you get? I went with the Can Am 500. Bought it really cheap. grin.gif Is the lake level still low? Heard you had some trouble with the pontoon this summer. How do you think that could effect the fishing? The drought was really tough on us little farmers down here.

Ten dollar beans, eight dollar wheat and skyrocketing corn prices don't help my pocketbook so I had to settle for the bottom of the line Suzuki King Quad 700. I think ice fishing will be great. I didn't get out to do much fall fishing so I hope ice fishing is good. I see that Bob's bay was starting to ice over this afternoon so maybe sooooon!!!!

I would love to put tracks on the new quad but I think I will give it a try without them for a year and see how it goes. That being said, maybe if I buy tracks it won't snow!!!

The lake froze was iced over as far as I could see at day break but there was lots of steam out in the middle. That stopped about 10:00 am. I asked the wife if she saw anyone fishing when she came home from work but she didn't. I bet somebody will be out in front of the beach tomorrow. I had a CRP day today. Cooperative rest program grin.gif

Waskawood,

Did you have another Cooperative Rest Period again today? I think I saw you walking around Ted's looking at snowmobiles. Could I get a good reference from you to be able to get your job when you retire? Us poor sole proprietors have to work 24 7 365.

Hey waskawood,

How much ice do you think there is out from your place? Do you go out on early ice with a portable? Or do you wait until you can pull your wheel house out with the 4 wheeler? I will be up there December 22 and 23. I will have to stop by and check out your icehouse, it looks like a nice one.

Later,

Nate

Hey Nate. I am only guessing but I would think there has to be at least 6 inches. I was going to take the portable out this weekend but with 10+ inches of snow in the forecast I am going to batton down the hatches and stay put. I hope it doesn't screw up the ice for the whole winter!!!Stop by anytime. It will be out front or down in Bob's bay.

Nate,

2 permenents down towards Bob's bay. Starting to see 4 wheelers out there this morning but I am waiting until after the snow. It is just starting now. The lady at the bait shop says there is a good 5 inches of ice. 3 portables out from Starbuck park. It was snowing so hard I couldn't tell if they had 4 wheelers.

Checked out Starbuck beach on Thu. afternoon & found 3 inches. Decided to head north to west end Reno & found 4 1/2. Went back on Friday & measured 5". Eyes are on the small side but were really good for dinner today. Did better in shallows than in deeper water although I had to battle off those pesky little Perch.

So how has the fishing been? I haven't heard many reports. I am guessing everyone is too busy catching fish. I will be coming up on the 21st and am planning on fishing Saturday and Sunday. How much ice is there? How much snow? Are people driving on the lake yet?

It looks like a car out in front of your parents place tonite. I guess there was a full size pickup out from the school house. I have heard up to 11 inches with lots of slush in areas. Going to put mine out Friday. Another CRP day. Sure wish I farmed grin.gif

      A boat and trailer are two separate pieces of equipment.  The trailer is titled and the boat isn’t.  You can have one and not the other for any amount of reasons. The wheelhouse is one item and titled, hence the plate.  Shelter tags primary purpose (besides raising money) is to officially verify who is responsible for it.  You can do that with a plate number. Is what it is.  But I’ve just been having more difficulties considering the license fees as just another drop in the bucket.  If ALL the money was used for managing wildlife and habitat I’d have an easier time with it.

      We caught em between 17' and 27' off a shoreline point. Definitely had more action in our shallower holes though.

      Got out today on Niles Bay. We had 4.5" to 6" of good clear ice. Only one walleye between the two of us but the tullibee and whitefish were on a tear. Even got a nice bonus pike! Hoping to dial in the walleyes over the next couple days.

      First ice fishing trip today out of morson ontario .  Fishing  was a little slow got a few walleyes and a couple of crappies . Lost what little  snow we had today made the ice really  slippery. Found 9 to 11 inches of ice.

      Dang Curt, did you take my suggestion on a drone?  Great report.

      Well, I have to pay for registration on my boat trailer to run it on the road, and the boat to run it on the lake, why shouldn't wheel houses?  I guess I don't feel bad for the wheel house guys.

      No not yesterday. 2 weeks ago when we had that first cold spell I went out on Baxter, Blue and Long and checked the ice. They were locked up but only had 1-2" inches so didn't venture out too far. Baxter probably was walkable but had open water on the back end so figured I stay off. Last Sunday I went and checked them out after that warm rainy week we had and they had open water, so yesterday I skipped checking them and went farther north. But I did notice most lakes were locked up on the drive up there. Cant wait for the local lakes to get some decent ice!

      Wondering if big sandy is clear enough to spear fish when the ice comes on? Never done it before and would like to give it a try
