      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 .

Wouldn't be able to take the look on the dog's face if I left without her. Still roosters left that need to die.

Wow! I am torn. Shoot roosters or get back on the ice for the third outing of the season? Im not sure if I can make my decision yet if there is ice on the IGL there will be no decision to make but if there isnt it will likely be to roosters in the morning and ice time in the afternoon assuming that we will be able to make it back out. It is important to be very careful of and know whats happening around you on the ice.

Another Cutsom Jigs and Spins afternoon

(The perch is just under 14")

Sarah has some very nice perch. First ice is a GOLDEN time to get them.

I may be stuck on Lime this weekend however. I borrowed a pal my truck for the weekend. Lime is walking distance, like a block.

Hey there perchpounder, I may not be fishing Saturday. I need to wait and see what the weather turns into.

45 mph wind, rain, sleet, and snow doesn't sound all that fun on the lake.

Sounds like a little slice of paradise to me! I'm planning on making my first trip to the IGL area tomorrow morning there are a few reports of fish being caught but i'd rather be the one reporting so i'll be out somewhere. If I don't make it to the lake there are still plenty of roosters around so ill be out and about somewhere no matter what the weather is. Maybe sunday will be better?

Is the rock burried yet? Im not too sure about tomorrow yet heading northward somewhere but can't decide where. Sarah seems a bit far for another exploratory mission. Got a report of a few walleyes coming out of West Graham among others and Talcot is traditionally a good first ice spot for me.

The rock is buried. I'll be pretty much the only guy on Lime Lake tomorrow. It's a total exploratory mission. I gotsa gut feeling the crappies will be hitting. Come on out.

I can't say i've ever caught a crappie in Lime lake. We have in years past catch some nice perch. I may just have to take you up on your offer but not until my co-angler calls me and tells me his game plan.

Nice fish.

Yeah, there are crappies in Lime Lake. I caught some yesterday. You really have to travel around and move to find them. I just got lucky yesterday.

      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.
    • Wanderer
      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!
    • grundy
      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.
