      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'd check w/ Willeys for the latest, but I think I'd wait before using a wheeler. The ice is poor

Taking a wheeler out now is like russian roulete.

Some places it's good and there are others that will swallow you up.

If it were me,I'd go to area's that I can walk out too.

Even then you are taking a chance,albeit slim.

BobberDown went in up to his hip and he busted through 7".

I work with guys that fish both lakes and we all agree.

You are taking a big chance with a quad.

Sleds are fine as long as you are going mach speeds.

Slow down and your going for a swim.

We have not been making much of any ice under that snow.

The slush is weakening the ice.

We need a warm spell or some rain to pack or melt the snow,then let it get cold again.

A side note....Aitkin Sheriff's dept said 3 sleds have gone in on BSL.Scuttle says 5.

I've also heard a confirmed report of a wheeler going through on Sissabagamah, and an uncomfirmed rumor of one going through on Hickory. All this snow wreaked havoc on the ice. Even with the super cold temps last weekend, not much ice was added. It's supposed to warm up next week, hopefully it gets warm enough to knock the snow pack down a bit. It sounds odd to say that we need some warm weather to start making good ice, but that's what we need....

By now this ice should be thick enough in most areas except those slushy spots.

I do not trust areas where water is on top of the ice.

      I used to fish Lake Shakopee regularly.  I did awesome catching largemouth bass there with good average size, and never had any competition.  A couple years ago, they did some construction upstream by the start of the river at the base of Vineland Bay for road construction and they had to drop water levels to do it.  The flow rate never came back to normal.  Then they took out Buckmore Dam in the state park at the base of Lake Ogechie which also altered the flow through that area.  I tried it once each the past two years and only caught 1 bass each time, in addition to about 40 pike.  Every single pike was the same size, about 20-22 inches.  Just snake after snake.  Slime city.  I think the alteration of the river flow through that area has permanently ruined the bass fishing there.

      Just goes to show that if you put the time in to eplore new places just to see if there is anything in said body of water..... it can have very good payouts. The body of water that we got the eyes out of i have never fished before. Grew up next to it basically its only 10 min from the house. When they started hitting all fish were caught one after another i have never had walleyes through the ice bite like they did. A new experiance and i was able to share it with friends. Hope everyone is being safe out there.

      There's no reason to go on the frozen lake when you are catching fish like that in the open water of a river.
    • crappie king 42
      No this is not red lake. This was a local spot in the cambridge princeton milaca area.  Nice solid 14-17 inch walleyes nice and healthy and they tasted delicious

      8Went out locally here thanksgiving mornin on three inches of solid ice hot into the eyes really well. A week later whole place was open water again so we went out in the kayaks got 14 eyes than went out again now that ice is back went to same lake and had a rough weekend we only managed to get three all weekend. Went out on all local lakes they are all sketchy at best. Few more days to solidify that bad ice and should be good to go. Went to shakopee in onamia and there was a solid 10 inches out there.
