      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'm real new to Ice fishing havn't gotten a chance to do it to much and wanted to get out this weekend. I was wondering I lake Rebecca in Hastings is a good lake to try? Anyone know ice conditions, or if this is even a good lake to try if all I'm looking for is a little action and I noticed there are a lot of different species to catch in theres as well. Any help is appreciated.

I live in hastings and have tried Rebecca shore fishing and late ice fishing last year a couple of times. Haven't caught one fish. Couple guys last year said crappies were good early in the year, but I don't think I would try to venture out there yet...ice may be sketchy in that area. There were quite a few houses down there last year though....

Thanks yea I thought the ice might be sketchy yet. The book of lake maps made it look like it could be a nice lake to try for ice. Does anyone else have any info on this lake?

I have been out on Lake Rebecca many times this year. Caught bluegills, crappies, and perch, mostly small. Have also seen smallmouth bass on the camera. The place where I fished had 6-8" of ice but there is still open some open water by the shores, I assume from springs, so be careful. There are some permanent shacks out there so if you don't venture to far away from that location you should be safe.

i have fished out on this location a couple of times. in my opinion the depth of the ice fluctuates from day to day, even when weather stays the same. my brother and i went out there last year for a couple of hours and the next day went to the same spot and it was down to 2" of ice. I dont know if there is a strong current that goes through there, but be safe. we did have some luck with crappies along the extreme northern shore, that was also where the ice changed day to day.

i don't ice fish but i've heard, from some old buddies trying to get me out, that this lake is the best kept ice season secret in the entire metro. makes sense as presure during summer is sparse with the electric only rule for boats. life jackets are cheap this time of year. invest in a winter life vest? why not? and some strong ice picks on lanyards to pull yourself out aint a bad idea.

If you guys still think it's a gem your a little bit too late. There may be days when the lake may produce a few nice fish but it's hardly a gem anymore. Hasnt been for years...

You can catch a mix bag of fish but fishing can be quite slow at times.

I live in Hastings about 3 blocks from Rebecca and I drive to WI to fish! It can be good right after they stock it with big gils but they seem to get fished out right away. I will try and swing by tomorrow and check out the ice for you on my way to another lake across the river laugh.giflaugh.gif.

What "lake across the river" do you fish? I live in Hastings and have been trying to find a lake that is not too far away to have the kids catch some fish on.

Tab-

Sorry - I should say across the river and then drive for 45 minutes. There aren't any options right across the river except for stream trout fishing.

Hmm, I had different results. Understand the lake and it's a gem.

      I resisted converting to braided lines. I liked my TrileneXL. Then, one day about four years ago I decided to spool up with fireline and at first I didn't think I could really feel much difference. Skeptical me, I always held on to that spool loaded with my trusty Trilene. One day I decided to put that mono back on and immediately could feel the difference. It felt like I was fishing with a rubber band. I went back to braided and haven't looked back.

      Last night a flock of geese buzzed the house and Finn went nuts! I think he wants to get out hunting as much as I do.

      Nice video Curt.  Looks like you are having way too much fun out there. Enjoy the time on the water.

      I will probably go out to my parents farm and set up in a pasture. The cattle have it mowed down pretty good. The geese seem tp pile in there pretty good. I won't hit it to hard, just get out a few times and hopefully get my son to get his first goose...

      I have really gone to line Gamma brand line. It is a copolymer. Soft like mono but abrasive resistant as well. I prefer it in #6 for game fish and #4 for panfish.... If I can't find it I fall back to trilene in XL.......
