      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 .

Kingfisher and I are heading out early Saturday morning and coming home that night. We're going out of Hunter Winfield's most likely. I have a durango that I can get six in but four is real comfortable. I have a 4x6 trailer we can put gear in. It would be nice to meet more FMr's and have some fishing at the same time. Plus with the price of gas, the more the merrier grin.gif. You can shoot me an email at s_e_hendricks@comcast.net if you are intersted. We are leaving from St. Paul around 4 AM.

Isn't the ice surface like huge broken glass shards after the wind down there by Isle? I saw the pic Waldowski posted, in the ML forum I think, and it seemed like it would be tough going!

I called Hunter Winfields today, they said they had 7 inches in the bay. I don't know that we are hitting the main lake for the reason you just said, but the bay I believe is fine.

Lybacks said on Monday that they planned to let snowmobiles out for the weekend. They checked the ice Sun. night and had 5-6" everywhere they checked. However, with this snow and I heard more is coming on Thursday and Saturday all of this might change. I will call them tomorrow for an up to date report.

It's Kingfisher and I and we picked up a fellow FM'r from this post. Still have at least one seat in the truck open. I can always put up the third seat if needed. Let me know if anyone else is interested.

We're leaving at 4 AM. Do I need to get bait in the cities tonight or is there a bait shop up in Isle that I can use in the morning?

There are lots of places around the lake to buy bait.

I usually like to stop at Prince bait and Marine in Milaca. I have anlways had good luck with their bait and the staff is helpful. It's a little ways south of Mille Lacs but right off of 169.

I am heading up for the weekend tomorrow morning. I plan on staying overnight in the permanent on shore so I can get in some time on the ice for Sunday also. Have yet to decide where I am heading out of. I am familiar with the area around Lyback's, but now I just bought a house at Brandt's, so I might want to stick around that area.

Sand,

The way things are shaping up, I will not make it. I have a crank sensor to do to on Sat. morning. I almost made it with porty and have made it enough, but in the end it not going to work out.

I will get together with you and KF1 on the pond yet this year.

Good luck!

      No see-ums were munchin us pretty bad this weekend on a canoe trip too.  Skeeters and flies were not too bad.

      I went out for duck opener near Milaca and it was sweltering HOT.  It was even cloudy/drizzly for a portion of the morning and it was still unbearable.  The DNR needs to move all these major hunting season openers back a week.  Its pretty obvious that fall is getting hotter and hotter.  We got 6 ducks and 2 geese but so it was at least a somewhat decent hunt but that didn't make up for the fact that it was like hunting in Louisiana.

      +1 on the Smooth Moves.  I installed them on my 1860 Ranger last spring and couldn't be happier with the performance in big water.  Lot's of adjustment and they do a great job of soaking up the rough stuff.  They are a little bulky compared to the other options, but I like the fact that they rely on a mechanical adjustment rather than air.  It would be interesting to sample them side by side in the same boat to really see if one is smoother than the other.  A friend of mine has the Wave Pro and he is happy with that also.  I was close to getting the air wave, but I'm happy I went with the Smooth Moves and would buy them again over the other two.  Good luck with your decision.  No matter which way you go, your back will be happy!

      I am still fishing mostly lindys with minnows but getting a few on jig/minnows also. We boated 13 walleyes and 7 jumbo perch this morning. Largest walleye was 21" . Most came out of 24' to 38' depths, close to rocks. Cliff

      Fished Saturday morning and trolled my way a half dozen eyes including a fat 26” plus two giant smallmouth.  Went back out Saturday evening put the trolling rods down and went Jig rappin.  Caught another 6-7 fish including another nice 26+ that popped off as I fumbled to grab the net as it wallowed around next to the boat. Tricky bite for me.  Still managed my limit of nice 16” fish.  Fishing mainly rock transitions and rock structure in 16-22’ fow.   I will be back in two weeks for my final hurrah before heading west to the mountains.

      I was going to go to my dads pond but my sister texted her friend is there so don’t come. Yep last time that will happen. There is one mad monstermoose! So I stayed home.

      One goose and one woodie so far today.  And will probably be our total count.  Saw plenty of birds but in a new spot we didn't have dialed in until the end of the morning flights.
