      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 .

I believe it's scheduled for February 24th or that weekend. Anyways, I've got the go ahead for an extended weekend that weekend and plan on heading up.

I'll bring my sleeper with and was wondering how lake access works with sleepers? What resorts are sleeper friendly?

Anyways, I'm really looking forward to the trip and hopefully catching a true slab!

any resort will take your ten bucks! from what i have experinced up there they are all friendly and very helpfull, more so than mille lacs, i think i even remember hearing about a resort on mille lacs last year that didn't allow wheel houses out over night from their access. Sure hope i can make to slabfest sounds fun to me!

Kylersk-

Talk to Hillman's on the NE side of the lake (just on the north side of Waskish). If you arrive after the bait shop closes, stop into the Tall Tales bar and pay your road fee.

You wouldn't believe how many people just pull straight onto the lake at night. I'm sure some of these guys come back in the morning to pay for their passes but I'm sure a lot don't as well.

What's the story about this slabfest? Is it a big party or tourny? Both, neither. I will have my wheelhouse on LOW, but from what I read on here I might want to give URL a try. Any and all info would be great.

Thanks

Bandit,

From my understanding it's just an informal gathering of FM'ers on Upper Red Lake.

Hey Bandit!

Kylersk is right on the money! Slabfest 2008 is a very informal gathering of a bunch of guys from the website here including a good number of Pro Staff who have already committed to attending. This is my 3rd year now hosting the Slabfest and it has definitely grown over the first couple years.

My intent is to keep the gathering fun and informational. Anglers of all skill levels are welcome and you will learn a thing or two about ice fishing, and definitely ice fishing on Upper Red Lake.

We will have a barbecue on the lake this year, as it was a big hit the first year and I failed to bring it back last year.

I'll publish more details as the winter wears on and formalize up the plans but look for the last Saturday in February to be the official date for Slabfest 2008. Hillman's Tall Tale's Tavern will be the meeting place and somewhere along Hillman's Rd will be the gathering area.

      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.

      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.
