      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 .

hey the slot just changed do you think we might be able to get a walleye dinner again or should we practice a little C&R to get the fish population back up?

If you can catch a few within the slot by all means have a nice meal they are few and far between. Good Luck

Thre'e nothing wrong with keeping a few for the frying Pan. Practice C & R when you have enough for a meal.

Keep a few now and again for a meal, but I would be a little conservative this year....the surveys showed declining numbers. I guess if you want to have good year classes and catch rates in the future....back off from harvesting as many as you did in recent years. Good luck all.

Never understand why if people want to eat fish they down't just get some pannies for the table. Leave the eye's in the lake so we can all catch a couple of times.

"Never understand why if people want to eat fish they down't just get some pannies for the table. Leave the eye's in the lake so we can all catch a couple of times."

If you believe in catch and release, by all means, practice. If you prefer to keep one, two, or your limit, by all means do so. I will never cease to be amazed at the condesention to frying up a few walleys on this site. I love to eat walleye and will keep doing so, if you do not, so be it.

Hopefully everyone will do what both of us just mentioned!!! It's been a blast up there these past few years- size wise. Hate to see things go South. Shoot me an e-mail sometime. mpothen@intricon.com

By all means, take your daily limit of walleyes or panfish. If you already have fish in the freezer, let em go so they can grow (and pro-create!). Who knows, maybe that 18 or 19 inch walleye you release may be caught by your grandson or grandaughter down the road and it will be 30 inches and a trophy of a lifetime for them! I am heading up to the pond this weekend for my first trip of the ice fishing season, I am pumped. Probably will start off on the south end in one of the bays and work my way out spudding and drilling holes checking ice depths. Definitely will be getting my exercise this weekend walking and pulling all my gear. Good luck to anyone who makes it out.

I don't get out and get walleye often enought to worry too much. I like to keep a couple of the table when I do catch them. But I release as well. What is the slot this time of year up there?

can keep em under 20" and one over 28". everything between 20 and 28 you have to let go.

So it went back to the normal slot? Good to know, wasn't sure if it was still going to be the 2" slot they had in the fall.

      Ice out as far as I could see today, little wind and a cool night tonight. Some wind forecast tomorrow night. It should be fine though. Here is the report   20171119_153600.mp4

      Any ice starting to form again?
    • Dirtyfisheyes
      By the look of the forecast, single digit lows at night and no snow. Should it be safe to say that the first of December would be safe for snow machines? Itching to make the trip. Also any recommendations for lodging would be helpful

      Yesterday Finn and I went hunting for ducks and I should have had 4 mallards and pair of woodies.i hit one woodie and it hit the water as Finn went to get it jumped up and flew away. Next weekend I will try again.

      Second week of December is looking good for southern Minnesota, if the current long range forecasts are close to accurate. Maybe even the first week of the month with a little luck.

      I figured I would start up a new thread for us to use for the winter now that things are starting to set up and guys may be starting to creep out on the bays and smaller water.   I did some more poking around on Pike Bay this morning and I don't have anything much new to report. We've got less than an inch of fluffy snow on the ice and things healed up after the warm front this week. I worked my way from shore out into the middle of the bay and ice was relatively uniform between 5.25 and 5.5 inches of nice clear ice. Earlier this week I checked all landings on the Tower end and everything was iced up except for open water way out in Big Bay appearing to mostly be all West of Birch/Ely islands. Not sure if all the recent strong winds from North and South have changed that status though. I'm still sticking with my original guess of December 2 for my first trip off McKinley on 5 inches.   Good luck this winter to all and Be Safe!

      extended forecasts look good up north. We won't have fish-able ice in the metro until at least the 2nd weed in December assuming no dramatic temp changes. The big Expo is Dec1-3 but temps look promising ~1.5hrs north. I wonder if the ability to go fishing might impact the amount of traffic at the show!
