      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 .

Fishing etiquette now days!

My friends and I have a house out on a local lake and had been doing quite well untill we got invaded upon. I mean we put the time in and found fish and put our permanent there. Now in the last two days we have had people litterally on top of us almost driving over our tip-ups and tonight had a guy set up ten feet from us. I mean what the heck there is a whole lake!!! I am at about ends wits and I am a pretty paitient person, but am about to loose my cool.. Is it just me or do most of you feel like it is just respect to give others some space when a lake isn't crouded? Then the jerk leaves his empty propane tanks!! So if you with the blue F-150 and fourwheeler sees this your welcome I picked them up. Anyways hopefully some people see this and think about how they are conducting themselves out there...

It happends everywhere, the people out there that dont have the time to find thier own spots but still fancy them selves a fisherman...doubtfull. not to mention 10 feet from you, if i was you you should have went and drilled a few more holes around him... ya know 10 ft or so. no need for me to rant and rave and add fuel to the fire but ya. pride yourself on patience like all fisherman do.

I feel your pain. We have had people set portables leaning up against our permenant. It drives me nuts. A whole lake and they have to be withing inches of you. Anyway, thanks for picking up their trash. It's guys like you that help to keep the lakes clean for everyone to enjoy.

Very good points, My Brothers.

Some guys have wax worms for brains. They just don;t get it. Leaving trash on the ice -- that is about as stupid as it gets. Do they think there is a little trash fairy come and pick it up?

Or, more than likely, they are expecting their MOM to come out on the ice and pick up for them.

Nice.

As for the crowding -- I don't agree with that, but it is a part of fishing. People should have more respect for others, but a few of them don't.

Hang in there.

I don't think there is anything wrong with telling these Jokers that they are not cool or funny. Might not help, but you got it off your chest.

BTW -- if that does not work, you can always hire DaHitman! wink.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifcool.gif

Sorry fellas but it's going to get worse. The population is growing and there just isn't enough lakes. The days of fishing a lake by yourself are limited if not over. The internet has also fueled the fire. Something that took us many hours and years to figure out is now a click away. Crowding is now a real issue to the fishing community.

      I have owned a place on Lake Vermilion(WE) since 2011 and have absolutely enjoyed every visit and season on the lake.  Our knowledge of the lake and fishing patterns have grown tremendously.  However, this experience has not translated success onto the ice.  We catch some fish, but feel like we should be doing better.  Typically we use small gear 1/16th or 32nd jigs with minnows, Spoons with just a minnow head or when we go after panfish we'll use wax worms.  We fish all the same spots and don't catch nearly as big or many fish.  When we do catch most of our fish, it's typically on mud flats and we drill a lot of holes.  Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

      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?

      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!
