      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 .

So who else went out in the storm?

Recommended Posts

Went out mid afternoon, snow falling pretty steady, and the fish seemed pretty lazy. Marked plenty fish suspended about 5-8 feet off the bottom, but only one bite. Anyone else got a report for this stormy saturday?

I was out from 11 to 4:30 and the fish were going crazy. Got a bunch of nice crappies, some walleyes, a pike, and an 11" perch. Rock bass were the only thing I got on the deadstick, all others were on a sweedish pimple, and they were smacking it!! Didn't even have to work em on the Marcum as soon as they showed up they were on the hook.

You must have been on Little Rock?!?!?

I can speak for Pearl; the lake was pretty dead, at least for everyone I talked to. Apart from a giant largemouth that found my ratso interesting, I didn't have much action. I talked to others, all of whom had caught either zero or one fish. I don't know why, but Pearl was pretty dead, at least for me and the guys I talked to.

No, not Little Rock, although thats where I would normally be at first ice. Really can't give the lake over the internet either so there isn't 10,000 people out there tomorrow after the Vikes game when I go back. confused.gif The perms and wheelers sure were getting onto the lake as I was leaving, just hope they left me some room. smile.gif

There were 5 solid inches. A few people were snowmobiling around out there, so I felt very safe. If you walk slowly and keep your eyes peeled, you can see the fishies swimming underneath you! Unfortunately for me and for everyone else out there last night, none of them were biting. I don't know why--maybe it was the weather--but I'm sure it'll turn around soon.

Well I went back today and what a difference a day makes. Two and a half hours got one pike and one walleye. Both came on the bobber too. Marked quite a bit but they weren't interested. 7.5 inches of clear ice plus an inch of water on top after drilling. frown.gif

      Did a few off season projects waiting for Ice. - Underwater camera, Fish Finder, Wheel house mods and the latest converting a 2 cycle Jiffy Lite 90 to an ION battery auger. Got the auger off Craiglist for $10, Drill for $15. Second stage of gear box is a 5 to 1 reduction so got the auger blade to turn at about 250 RPM which I feel is an ideal speed. Gear reduction also doubled the torque of the motor drive. Planning to use the Dewalt 20V ION battery as I already have charger and now converting one of the 1.5 AH batteries to either 9 or 12 AH.  If anyone needs a mid 80's Jiffy Lite 90 motor and clutch PM me. Has great compression, never tried to start it.  Price somewhere between free and a gift. If you did a project this summer, would you care to share them? DJ ION Auger HB.mp4  << Click link for video

      You may want to consider #3 ; Rapala Jiggin Raps, or drop shoting. They both have been putting some nice size suspended slabs topside under some breezy conditions as of late. Fishing sure was downright epic the last week for all species. To bad it looks like "global warmering" is coming to an end for this year, was awesome while it lasted...... Those are some decent perch panman54. LOL!

      Pretty remote and flat back there. I haven't been on that exact shoreline but I bet you can pull a boat up there quite easily.

      I didnt hear how the second day went yet.  The long term average is 8% success up to 10% during the 2 deer era.  so 5.7% isnt bad for day 1.   Cooler weather will hopefully help us second weekenders. I havent seen much for rubs or scrapes here yet, should be starting any day.

      HooDoo Point, Everett Bay public landing, or the Casino are all good landings if you want to fish Big Bay. The Y-Store or  the Food and Fuel in Tower both have good bait. Cliff

      Anything from moccasin point west can be pretty spotty with Verizon. If you're on big bay it's tough to beat

      I just read an article in the paper recently, that pout fest might be relocated to Lake Bemidji in 2018. It never gave a reason why though. Anyone know anything?
