      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 was out over the weekend and I found ice anywhere from 2 to 3 inches to 6 to 7 inches. Someones gotta be the first one to drive out, but it ain't gonna be me. Hopefully they don't make the news.

I stopped in at the bait shop & he said there was also one on the south bowl of Chisago Lake.

Gutsy, yes.

Maybe he drilled before he went out & it was fine.

TRUE STORY : About 20 yerars ago, I once drove my Pick-up truck across the Mississippi River on DEC 14th where it leads into Big Winnie...

It rained HARD the night before, the water was coming up around the side windows. My Dad said "A little more to the right - it's shallower over there".

I about flipped out, turned my truck around and headded back to shore & drove around to West Winnie Campground.

NEVER so scared in my life. Probably only 6-7 inches, but I didn't go through...

Frankies said the water is down low enough and parking at sunset point was not a problem because it is mostly shore now. I was parked there monday along with two pickup trucks. That is about all the parking space over there now. I noticed a lot of the no parking signs are down on the road to sunset however my guess is you still cant park there.

and the bad thing is now someone else will see the tire tracks and continue the idiozim, sad thing is that whole bay is all milfoil, I didnt feel safe out there last year with 16 inches of ice.

I thought I saw that too but didnt stop to see the crazies, guess I could always slow down and do that more grin.gif

Does he have a plow on the front of that thing?

Plus he is parked right next to the house. Unless this is this person’s first year on ice, but you got to know how thick the ice is.

The big problem, (like stated above) will be the "truck" that drives out on his tracks. I guess they get what they get. Hope he catches something?

Alright I know its to his or her own risk, but when do we say STOP!! I saw them out there again today but this time in a Maroon Minivan. I am at a loss for words, If I went out fishing and saw this guy/gal/person come driving out I would just have to leave, I woudlnt put myself at risk to try and rescue this @(#O&$ and I woudlnt want to put anyone else in danger. What do you guys think about it? UGH ....

I get driving out if you've drilled your holes all the way out, know the depth of the ice, whatever.

I would NOT be parking RIGHT next to the fish house though.

The house a decent sized perm., so that's gotta be heavy, plus the weight of the minivan right next to it.....

I suppose a guy could call the local C.O. and tell him about it...just say you're concerned about the safety of that person and others around. Perhaps this would fall under the jurisdiction of the C.O. and he/she would have a good suggestion on what to do. Just an idea.

I would say Sheriff! If someone goes threw, they are the first on the site and then fire and rescue. Thin ice is a Sheriff concern. I do not think they will do much. They sure are not going to go out there.

It does not make this any better, but it looks like a Caprice or a Cadillac. I do not know why his house has not flooded yet? That much weight, it’s got to be pooling up water around this house!

I believe this part of the lake was froze over fairly early. I believe people were out fishing a week prior to the snow storm even...so perhaps with all the cold temps we had prior to the snow, that created sufficient ice in that bay to handle the weight of the snow (and car/house)...so unless you actually know the thickness of the ice...who's to say its unsafe. Although with everything we know about other ice conditions in the area its normal to question it. Has anyone been fishing out in that bay recently and know the ice thickness?

Where I was fishing there was 7 to 8 inches of ice. I guess the main part of the lake(Chisago)didn't freeze over until just before the first snowfall so I imagine the ice could still be considerably thinner in some areas. I did notice there is still some wet areas under the snow as I walked out.

I saw a guy pull his house out with his truck yesterday.shocked.gif

He came over and talked to me to see how thick the ice was where I was at and he explained that he has been plowing a road from day one. He has a good 12 inches of ice on his road and the area where he pulled his house out to. He did express some concern that his driving on the ice might give others the wrong idea and went on to say that now that his house was out he might just use his atv to run back and forth until the ice was thicker.

Your right about that bay freezing first, or atleast appearing to, its nothing but milfoil over there, and the only public access to the lake is on the other side so he would of had to drive all the way out there, Big green froze over just before the snowfall too. I guess we will just sit back and wait and see what happens. I hope this doesnt ruin someones holidays .... frown.gif

He's a resident who lives right on the south bay. He plowed the road out from his property.

      My rod bag with 5 rods in it fell off my sled while walking out from the public access on Sat. afternoon.
      I didn't notice until I had walked out to a spot and drilled some holes and started to get set up to fish.
      By the time I walked back to shore the bag had been picked up.


      Please let me know if you have any info.
      Thank you,

      Looked like a good time guys. Wish i could have been there unfortunatly i had to work. I hope i can make the next one.

      Got out Saturday afternoon and after putting in some time drilling holes finally found panfish in 20-24 ft, almost in the basin areas I'd look mid winter.  Crappie and sunfish were mixed and we caught almost all of our fish on a small jig and waxworm.  Tried minnows and only caught a couple fish that way, even when we were catching fish on waxworms in a hole 3 ft away.  They seemed to want something to chase so keeping the jig moving and pulling away from them helped quite a bit.  Had 10" of ice where we were fishing and was pretty consistent, but there's lots of reports of extremely varying ice thickness so keep checking ice thickness on your way out.

      WARNING a buddy was on  MELISSA and was aiming towards the crappie hole in the NE Corner/First break to fish out there last night.  He was checking ice and was having 10" of ice then hit 3"!  Please be careful out there.  Needless to say he turned around and went back to the access.

      Best use I can think of for a selfie stick. Great fish.

      I will second what Icehawk said.... some good lakes around you. Briggs chain is close, some very nice fish in that system. I tend to fish fairly shallow(under 10ft) most of the time 6-8 right in or on the edge of the weeds for the gills.

      Looking for some folks in the area. Have you guys ever fished Borden lake near Garrison? I fished Maple lake last week with a lot of small crappie caught.  I let them all go, biggest was 9". Fished few lakes in that area with no luck. Even went to my little honey home with little succes Looking take the GF out tomorrow morning.  Any ideas? Seen someone posted about crappie in Pearl. 
    • HoleHoppingGills
      I was out last Sunday and there was solid 3.5 black ice. It's been s week now so guessing around 6 inches in northeast bay.  All crappie I caught were small besides on 9 incher I let go.
