      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 .

No need to give out GPS coordinates (you can e-mail them grin.gif) but, whos heading out this weekend?

My plan, the plan that I have not yet presented to Mrs boilerguy so it will probably change, is to hit Bingham Lake after work on Friday. I haven't fished this lake much, and let's just say I'm curious. Saturday is my sons birthday and he wants to do other stuff. Maybe that evening after festivities are over I'll go hit a lake somewhere. Sunday I think I have open, anyone wanna hit a lake????

Wooooooooooooooooooo, tempting. I was just told my weekend schedule is goood as long as i fix Mrs boilerguys chair. I can do that. I fix million dollar machines for a living I can handle a chair. Or, I can wrap enough duct tape around a chair to make it work.

I really want to go to URL, but I think it's no go for this weekend. However, I'm game for a Sunday if anyone is interested in a local SW MN lake.

I will say this, South side road is the way on, but don't always believe the masses are on fish. There are fish biting, but you have to find them. One thing I can surely tell you about Round, you have to be willing to move to keep up.

As for other reports from phone calls of people asking me where I am at... Lake Wilson perch bite... Boot Lake perch bite... Talcot walley bite.... Have not heard a single thing off of West Graham, or Okabena. East produced some fish a week ago with very light bite, not too aggressive.

I have many friends who have spent the entire week on Round Lake and yes they have caught some fish, but many were 12-14 inchers, which in my house get to swim again. Give me 3 or 4 16-18 inchers and me and the girls are gonna eat! Fry up the taters, butter me up a piece of bread and strap on a feed bag.

Long story short. There are some fish going home, but nothing to write home about. I am going to try again on Saturday afternoon, with the buddies, but for the most part we are just going to be christening a new year by bringing out the first of three hard houses....(this being the LIGHT one!)

I think I am done pheasant hunting in Minnesota this year. I got my share and gots to leave some to grow up. Plus I am going to South Dakota next week.

Tight lines and stay safe!

Last weekend. Dead smelt on the bottom. They are on the prowl that's for sure.

Some perch are coming out of Bean. Crappies and perch on Lime. I haven't heard anything about either Grahm or Cottonwood.

I never saw a house on Bean, but I heard the walleyes are biting on Double. Tonight again there were around 8 vehicles at the landing. I am going to assume at least 6 inches as there was 4 wheelers out there.

Kennedy is a fishing pro at the age of 10! Enjoy them eyes! Key to good day ice fishing is getting a full tummy in the near future and not falling in! Bonus if you don't have to walk 3/4 way across the lake again!!!! Had a blast man, gotta do it again!

Fish in the pail make the work out worth it.

I'm glad you towed my outta shape butt back. I would have had to stop at Wal-mart and buy a lung.

Too much fun. We have to hook up again. (pun intended)I don't know what lake I'm hitting next. I think I'll get the wheeler running this week and put my house on Sarah for a try.

I will be at a local treatment facility soon... but for the next week, I will be having ice fishing withdrawls. I have to go to ND for work and then hitting South Central South Dakota to shoot some rooty birds with the boys on the annual Pheasant hunt!

Keep some fish in the lake and be safe.

Sounds like you fellas had a pretty good time. My Amateur Coangler and I headed south saturday to do a little looking around and ended up with 25-30 nice gills and headed back sunday on my own and ended up with 49 gills and crappies in less than 5 hours on the ice. Pretty good weekend and hopefully the next will be better now that we should be able to get onto some better spots.

      Thanks much Huntnfish and ZachD!!!  Had the wife pick me up some CCI 209 Magnum primers and seems to have fixed the issue.  Went out the other night and put 7 rounds through the ole CVA and didn't have a single hangfire.  I'm ready for the weekend.

      Anglers and others interested in Department of Natural Resources strategies for managing Grand Marias area lakes and streams are invited to review and comment on management plans scheduled for review this fall. This annual process includes several waters located within the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness (BWCAW). Comments on lakes within the BWCAW will be accepted until Dec. 20. The comment period for lakes and streams outside the BWCAW, will extend through Feb. 15. A management plan identifies specific management activities planned for a lake or stream over the next five to 20 years, including any proposed stocking or special regulations. “Management plans are our best single sources of information on past, present and desired future conditions in our lakes and streams,” said Steve Persons, Grand Marais area fisheries supervisor. “Comments and suggestions from those most interested in these waters are crucial when it comes to making plans and determining management success. For anglers this is the best opportunity to influence how these lakes and streams are managed.” In the Grand Marais area, plans for the following lakes and streams will reviewed this winter. Lake plans under review: The status and preservation of native lake trout populations will be the primary concern in plans being revised for Blue Snow and Gabimichigami Lakes. Both are located inside the BWCAW. Stream trout stocking and management strategies will be reviewed in Thompson, Thrush, Turnip, Olson, Kraut, Little Portage, Olga, Mavis (BWCAW), Missing Link (BWCAW), Meditation (BWCAW), Talus, Trout, Pine (near Two Island Lake), Unnamed (near Tom Lake), Chester, Extortion, and North Shady Lakes. Options to consider include changes in species, reductions in stocking frequency, and changes in the number or size of fish stocked. In Mine, Peanut, Weasel (Sled), Tomato, Trip, and Rog (BWCAW) Lakes, fisheries managers are considering eliminating trout stocking, due to the high cost of stocking remote lakes by air, poor survival of stocked fish, or use that appears to have been too low to justify the cost of continued stocking.  Angler feedback on fisheries in these lakes is critically needed for these important decisions. Plans for Devilfish, Gust, Hand, and Tom Lakes will be reviewed with attention to the status and needs of walleye fisheries in those lakes. Moore Lake will be reviewed to determine whether it offers any potential for panfish management. Plans for several lightly-used BWCAW lakes in the area, including Caribou (by Clearwater), Clove, Kiskadinna, Long, Mora, Morgan, Skipper, and Tepee Lakes will be reviewed. Those plans will be revised primarily to incorporate any new survey data that may have been obtained, and to establish survey schedules for the next few years. Streams plans under review: Plans for Beaverdam Creek and the Swamp River will be reviewed.  Both are marginal trout streams, and may be considered for removal from the State’s list of designated trout streams. Plans for the Cascade River, Elbow Creek, and the Onion River will also be reviewed. All three support thriving brook trout populations, with the Cascade and Onion Rivers also supporting steelhead and salmon in their lower reaches. Plans will focus on habitat and water quality, hydrology and watershed issues. The DNR is considering removing the portion of Elbow Creek above Elbow Lake from the State’s list of designated trout streams, since no trout have been found in that part of the stream in recent surveys. Current plans for lakes and streams in the area as well as recent fish population assessment information are available for review at the DNR’s Grand Marais area fisheries office, at 1356 E. Highway 61, Grand Marais, Monday through Friday, between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. For more information, call or email Steve Persons at 218-387-6022 or steve.persons@state.mn.us. Public comments on management of BWCAW waters are due by Dec. 20. The comment period for lakes and streams outside the BWCAW will extend through Feb. 15. Comments, suggestions and other feedback on the management of these, and all other streams and lakes in the area are welcomed at any time and will be considered when those plans are next due for review. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      The first set of replacements I bought from a dealership but they are spendy. I bought some Ancos at Fleet Farm like I have in the past for all my vehicles, but there is no adapter that fits the end of the  blade arm. What are others using?

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) and the city of Willow River will host a public open house on Wednesday, December 6, 2017 to discuss options for the Willow River dam which was severely damaged during a July 2016 rain storm. The open house will be held from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Willow River School located at 8142 Pine Street, Willow River, Minn. Participants can visit displays during the first hour of the open house to learn more about three options currently being considered.  At 7:30 p.m. DNR staff will make a presentation about the features, benefits and cost of each option and answer questions about next steps. The meeting purpose is to receive public input about the options and to answer questions about the state’s process. The dam was built in 1940 as a cooperative venture between the Works Progress Administration and the then Department of Conservation. Heavy rains from a July 2016 thunderstorm overwhelmed the capacity of the dam and caused a significant breach of the north embankment. Options include replacement of the dam to meet current safety standards, removal of the dam, or restoration of the river channel with a series of rock weirs, or rock rapids, to retain water levels but to allow passage of small craft as well as the movement of fish. “We have a rare opportunity to reimagine how this stretch of river might function and look like in the future,” said project manager Jason Boyle. “We look forward to hearing from area residents and moving the project forward.” Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      what if you pull a wheel house to Mn from out of state or are a non resident?

      I am noodling this same concept over.  I am thinking either a dedicated (portable) battery, since I may be pulling on shore to the ice with the 4-wheeler or a hand, boat-type winch, not always hooked up to the truck.
