      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 .

Need ice fishing advice

Recommended Posts

PikeFerret

I would like to take my wife up ice fishing on Mille Lacs for a couple of nights. Wondering if anyone knows of any reputable resorts that put you on fish and also would accept a dog in their sleeper houses? I've never been in a sleeper on Mille Lacs and don't know what to expect.

For those that have also fished Red Lake, would I be better off making the trip up there? I live in the cities and I have fished there before and know what to expect.

Open to any advice or ideas.

look at the links on the top of this page. appledoorns and hunter winfields are very, very top notch operations. Not sure about the pooch though, you'll just have to make some calls and check.

Ryan,

Thanks for the kind words!

PF,

As Ryan said, give us, or Hunter Winfield's a call. Not sure if they have a pet policy or not. We will accept your pet with certain restrictions.

Fished both. If you don't mind the extra drive and you have the time, guess where I would recommend?

I'd be giving lybacks ice fishing a call, Eddy will treat you very well & very helpful, But I think where ever you go I think the dog issue will be tough. otherwise just about every resort will be inviting. good luck, my wife enjoy's the hard water much more than soft water. wink.gif

Lyback's is tough to beat early in the season. We always have excellent catches out there in December, but Appeldoorn's is also a class location and will put you on fish. Can't comment on the pet however.

Just reading the post and Ive been planning on renting a shack for a few winters now I check out your website and had just a couple questions

1) When renting a 24hr. time slot does it go from noon-noon or how does that work?

2) I was thinking early ice. Saturday Dec. 29th or one of the saturdays shortly after. Does Mille Lacs usually freeze over by that time?

3) What do anglers out your way have best luck with Perch or Walleyes? Im not really looking for the trophies I just wanna see my buddies get into some action so they'll come back for more. grin.gif

4) How far in advance do you prefer that we reserve a date and what do we need? Credit Cards over the phone, or stop in? (Im in Mora almost every other weekend)

Sorry to get back to you so late - I was having internet issues and the resorts been busy - we have all houses out on the lake and some openings yet this saturday - all our weekends in January are booked, we do have some openings yet in February - we do need a credit card to charge for 1/2 the reservation at the time of booking.

And, we are catching a mix of perch and walleye....

People are driving cars and trucks out - our road is about 1 1/2 miles out - close to the mouth of the bay - there is a lot of slush just past us so we aren't going any farter than that yet. People are catching a mix of perch and walleye.

      Thanks snowfighter. Coming up Dec 9 weekend.my brother took some fish outta little turtle the weekend of Oct 7 th. Sounds like from your end of the lake. Seen pics, some decent pike.

      With 2 trout stamps you can keep double your limit. You heard it here first on the interwebs!  Me and Mr Williams will swing by and say Hi this winter in Ely.   That is, if we can get around your sled!!  Happy Thanksgiving!

      don't  give them any ideas!
    • fisherjmb
       There is probably not going to be much ice to speak of  if the forecast holds true. They are talking 50s on Friday, Sunday and Monday. Any ice we did have will most likely be gone, unfortunately.
    • snowfighter
      Haven't been out looking but things have been froze up for awhile. Heard there was some out on Bowstring last week.
    • Jim Almquist
      Wife you dummy  I know the problem first hand !!
    • MJ1657
      It's that time of year. Cone on up and see if you can claim the Nord Lord. Spearing in the Third River Flowage in Winnie. Pizza party Friday night in the lodge potluck in the ice Saturday at noon.   Any questions hollar.

      Saw something interesting on forest lake this morning...lake was completely locked up, yet someone had launched their boat and was trudging through the ice! That’s dedication! Anyone have any ice updates to report?
    • leech~~
      2 Trout stamps.  Did I miss something and need to go back and get another?
    • Wanderer
      The 200 foot rule gets me a little but it has to be defined somehow what is occupied and what isn’t.   So for a wheelhouse we get to buy tabs to have on the road and a sticker to have it on the ice and go away for a little while.  Seems pretty close to double taxation since any LE can find out who the owner is from the current plate. Plus the spear shack that I might want to keep up over the weekend.  2 tags plus license. Combination sports license 2 trout stamps Waterfowl stamps Pheasant stamp  Turkey license (stamp now included) Deer license for all seasons   The bucket is getting heavy with all the drops in it.
