      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 .

Yearly Attempt at a FM Metro Get-Together!

Recommended Posts

hanson

Hey fellow Metro Ice-Fisherman!

I've had a few requests now to put together a Metro FM Get-Together. I'm a pretty busy little dude come winter, spending most of my time outside the metro, but meeting a number of folks who fish locally is always fun too!

A Metro Get-Together will more than likely happen on a Saturday sometime this winter. The lake is still yet to be determined and is open to popular opinion!

As with all FM Get-Togethers, the premise is "fun", "fellowship", "fishing" , and just hanging out and having a good time. Anglers of all skill levels are welcome!

We obviously have some great lakes in the metro to choose from so throw out your votes wisely! Will it be Tonka? Medicine? White Bear? Forest? Calhoun? Nokomis? Prior? or???? Outer metro lakes are options as well such as Sarah or further north to Rush.

I've got a couple bait shops in mind that would more than likely be willing to "sponsor" the event but details would obviously have to be worked out!

This is a topic to way your opinion and interest if you are interested and lets get the ball rolling, eh? grin.gif

I would second Prior Lake, since I could probably make that one.

I would definitely be willing to go to this depending on location. My vote is for Tonka though but I would not object to Prior either. grin.gif

I'll be there. I second prior or Tonka. Also, Bald Eagle might be an idea as well as FL.

I'd show to Prior or Tonka, but others wouldn't be bad either. Isn't Medicine also a likely spot from years past? We could even go as soon as Sat the 22nd (before Christmas) if it worked out on short notice.

I would love to get out somewhere and meet up with some members from FM.

I've never fished Tonka or Prior so my vote would be for one of them.

I'm relatively new to the FM site, but I wouldn't mind joinging the crew for an outing... I like the idea of Prior.

Or is that too much work?

I'll be there. FM gatherings in the past have been great, especially if we choose a day when there isn't a -20 windchill (anyone else remember that day on White Bear?).

I like the idea of Prior or Tonka. I've never fished either so would be nice to try it out with people that have fished it before. If we can do it between the 18th and early Jan I can bring my Dad with since my folks will be in town for Christmas.

Prior's a great lake to try. I was out there quite a few times last year and would almost always find the crappies. Sandmannd, shoot me an e-mail and I'll tell you where to go.

I'm game for most lakes- I'd just need to know far enough in advance to make the needed arrangements.

Prior or Tonka are good options as well as any other mentioned.

I live a mile away from Prior and have only ice fished it twice... crazy.gif

Looks like its going to be a good turn out already based on the replies. cool.gif

      2 Trout stamps.  Did I miss something and need to go back and get another?
    • Wanderer
      The 200 foot rule gets me a little but it has to be defined somehow what is occupied and what isn’t.   So for a wheelhouse we get to buy tabs to have on the road and a sticker to have it on the ice and go away for a little while.  Seems pretty close to double taxation since any LE can find out who the owner is from the current plate. Plus the spear shack that I might want to keep up over the weekend.  2 tags plus license. Combination sports license 2 trout stamps Waterfowl stamps Pheasant stamp  Turkey license (stamp now included) Deer license for all seasons   The bucket is getting heavy with all the drops in it.

      Really no different than using your boat.  $14,000 fish house and $14.33/year is going to kill you?? What gets me is at the lake we are at in the summer, mostly out of state people in the campground and all of their boats, never leave that lake and they are all licensed out of state and not in MN.  That is a chunk of money the state does not see.
    • Fishing Frenzy
      Great news to hear! Hopefully it will make enough tonight and hope it isn't going to get as warm as they say. Fingers crossed!
    • CLPDB
      Was hoping to come up with a 1/2 ton and a 16ft wheel house Dec. 1st.  Any thoughts if the ice will be think enough to go out of Hillmens?

      Took a drive around Lake Osakis earlier. It appears the cold and calm winds we had last night made a lot of ice. From what I could tell it appeared the lake was locked up except there was a small open area in Manthey's Bay that had a couple trumpeter swans swimming around and another small area in front of Holiday Resort that had some ducks swimming around. The rest was all ice, thin ice. Don't know if it will hold up over the next 5 days. High of 38 tomorrow, 46 and showers on Friday with high winds, 36 Saturday, 44 Sunday and 44 Monday. The lows over night aren't going to dip very low. If it was a few inches thick I wouldn't be to concerned, but as thin as it is, could be bad.
    • PRO-V
      Not by itself it won't but they raised the price on licenses for everything. Once you add it all up I'll bet you never got that big of a raise at your job. I paid for an ATV license since they first came out and we didn't get squat for it for over 20 years. What a joke, not to mention debacles like Mille Lacs Lake management. AAARRGGHHH!!  I gotta quit now before I pop a vein.
    • JerkinLips
      Thanks for the updates.  Think I will play it safe and wait until Thursday, November 30 to go out from McKinley Park.
    • Finnish Flash
      7" of good clear ice in the couple holes I drilled in Pike Bay this morning.   
    • cookie129
      not sure why its not showing I'm posting? Anyway walking out on the south shore gets you in deeper water quicker. Yes they do bite on red lake during the dark. I hardly ever go on the lake early ice unless Buddy Hillmen needs my help. Once I drive on the lake with blue thunder I will be on her just about everyday un  tell mid march if mother nature cooperates.
