      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 .

1st Ice Event on Fish Lake Sat Dec. 8th

Recommended Posts

Well guys we are shooting for Sat Dec 8th out of High Banks Resort. I have Cabins 3 and 4 reserved for Friday/Sat.

I will need a idea of how many guys want to stay those nights so if I need to cancel 1 cabin I can do so in time.

As usual support Tim at High Banks for all he does for this event.

Im hoping ice is good enough for wheelers/sleds. It was at this time last year, we went all over the lake but by the bridge and D a m of course.

So lets hear who all will be there.

I will be fishing all day Friday if anyone wants to join me.

Last time I came down I got such a wild ride over the ice that I had two rods broken for me and the terminals on my Vex battery turned completely into pretzels. Thank God I had my camera gear in a fully padded bag or I'd be talking $10,000 in ruined gear. Not really eager to have that happen again. Can't afford to spend that kind of money on top of $3.09/gallon gas. blush.gif

If I come down this time, I'll be on my own and happy to be that way. grin.gif

If its safe for wheelers I will be there. Last year I was on foot and had to rely on a ride from Northalnder. Thanks for the lift Steve but I hate imposing on others. It will be a one day only event for me, but I had a good time and caught a few fish last year.

Reminds me, gotta start planning for another Minnesueing outing.

So that was your ice rods that poked holes in my new Otter?grin.gif

Not to mention all your busted cans of Diet Coke everywhere. shocked.gif

Even with all that I seem to remember I guided you on a 26" eye. wink.gif It was worth it.

Of coarse I'll be there.

Hey Gang,

I'm happy to say that Hunting season is over and I'm looking forward to getting out on the ice. I have the whole weekend off including Friday. So count me in for any and all fishing that will be taking place. I have a couple four wheelers that I or someone else can bring up for us to use. I will be staying at home also.

I'll be there with wheeler again. Hopefully, this time, there is no towing of broken down snowmobiles on the ice!

I'm waiting. Hope Gander has some good "day after thanksgiving" sales! I'm looking forward to their Ad coming in!

"will frank be doing the rat dance agian."

LOL, I had almost forgot about that one grin.gif He's (the rat) probably still having bad dreams about that little incident !!

I will be there with Junior, sled and Otter in tow. Will try to see if I can get friday off too, tho Jr has school in the afternoon. Will be staying at home.

Looks like some cool nights/days coming that will hopefully give us some good ice by then.

Casey,

I have only heard of the stories on this matter. I'm not the person with any photos. I didn't even get a first hand look at Frank's Moon Walk (Dance) that took place the year before. It just seems to get better each year!!!

      Thanks for the update cigarguy- were you lindy rigging?
    • CigarGuy
      Neighbor and I went out in Wakemup for a couple hours tonight and got a 18" and 19" and had a nice one come unbutton on the way in....Leaches and crawlers.  That's good for me!  20 - 34' off a break line.  Del, working on the last flight of the steps-was looking for you to stop by and help!

      I used lead core on Friday and had a ball catching walleyes of all sizes.  I started in the morning and stayed out until I just got tired in the afternoon.  I probably pulled in as many as 20 or so.  My formula was:  90 feet of line, 19-24 ft of water, #5 rattling split deep shad rap.  Silver color.  I kept it right at 2mph.  I also did much better when I pumped the rod in a regular cadence.  Keeping it in the rod holder didn't produce near the fish. 
    • mtheis
      Ace, I hope you enjoy your retirement.  I hired you one time and my boy and I had a good time.  I appreciate the hard work you did on putting us on fish.  Good Luck and maybe "Little Ace" can continue the family business some day!   Michael Theis

      These are legal aliens.  Glad you enjoyed your lunch.

      Trolling or casting jigs and spinners(silver or gold are best for pike IMO) near the weeds, in bays, etc, cranks, and top water buzz baits around weedy areas are how I get most of my pike. Use a leader. Orange jig heads with a sparkly yellow twister tail and a jumbo leech gets me more pike than any other method. Your mileage may vary.

      I had lunch there a couple of days ago. Great service and good food! I did not see any illegal type aliens there at that time!  Cliff
