      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 .

Check out the sponsor's of this forum. You will find their links at the top of the page. Also, check out Hunters Point.

I would try to make the reservation quickly...resorts that can accommodate that big of a number usually fill up fast.

Hope this helps.

Myself i have stayed at many different resorts around the lake in sleepers and will be again January 14-17 allso have caught fish at all places i have stayed. Just be moible if your not seeing or catching in one area move to another.To find one that holds you all maybe hard to find but i could be wrong.You may need to rent a couple houses. I would call around see who has what to offer you and your group.Some resorts will even throw in a few drinks on the house with big groups.Just my 2 cents hope it helps. The reports have been looking good thanks guys for sharing your outings with us fellow members. cool.gif

how does someone who is renting a sleeper stay mobile. seems to defeat the purpose. call dickies portside, good people and good fishing. tell them you want a house that is on the deep side of the break. better for all day sits than fishing the top. when i rent a sleeper w/freinds we often put 1 tip-up out per person in day,and i like both my lines in the shallower water at night so i put out 2 tip-ups. i use a pager to alarm me that my tip-up goes up. this is always a blast. good luck.

I couldn't disagree more. I rent a sleeper for a base camp. It allows you to sleep on the lake and catch fish at the same time. I bring my portable up and use that to hunt around during the day and hopefully set up for the sundown bite. I think its a great one-two punch for catching fish.

What he said.

That is if ya want to put in some serious fishing .

If ya want to party or just kick back and relax (with the chance of catching some fish), then by all means stay in the hardside shack all day.

Either way is OK, it just depends on what ya want and what ya expect.

Powerstroke has the same idea as i and that would be how to do it - now you know LoL cool.gif.

walleye chaser, we like to rent top of the line houses one weekend a year. 3 of us split the bill, $350-400 each. we tend to hunker down and r&r. the tip-ups make us semi-mobile. normal weekends are spent hunting walleyes with the portable eqpt. you play your way and i'll play mine. tongue.gif

      Picked up some nice crappie and a couple eater walleyes on Allouez Bay the other day before the rains. Trolled crawlers with one light split shot and others with bottom bouncers. I was surprised at how big the crappie were

      ripped out some old boards that were well past their prime on my boat.  Any recomendations on what to replace them with?  They looked to be treated plywood but wondering if getting something different would work better.  Such as a piece of 1 x 12 pine and throwing a few coats of polyurethane on it as well?  The boards I am talking about are for the benches.   Also, replacing the seats in there as well.  Previous i had the the vinyl foam seats.  When shopping around i am seeing a lot of the molded plastics chairs.  Any preference out there for durability?  Vinyl rips but wondering if the molded crack or break?   Thanks for any feed back!

      The flocks of geese are now flying over my house in the morning and evening, but when this happens Finn gets all jacked up. Like right now he is nudging me and running pawing at the window. A few minutes earlier when the first gaggle few over I was going to change the laundry and Finn raced down and sat by gun safe  whining.  Fishing reports have been great for crappies on the area lakes. Walleyes are not biting as well in lakes but when the rum is clearer that is the place to be. Bears any no quota hunters this might be your year to get a bear around here.  Deer seem to every where drive carefull.  Seeing some ducks flying around.  I have seen a few grouse and pheasants.

      I've been by a time or two trying to figure out which place is yours.   I was out on wakemup last night too.   Got nothing, on crawlers.  Started out at merry go round, went to "picnic island" (little island east/south of taylors).  rigged along edge of those two humps in like 18-25 feet.   Musky guys were coming so I turned.  They turned too, chunking baits in the vicinity of my boat.   Then some guys in a pontoon pulled up and anchored in front of me  and threw out bobbers.   Fished a while longer, and it was getting sort of dark so went home.   Weird.  I've been on those humps a bunch of times this year, and suddenly I get company.   And, even though it is a pretty big area they gravitated to where I was.  I'll be out today too, so if you need help with supervision, let me know.    But I will drive by to check out the new construction.

      Been getting a few on the weed line, early am when there's a little breeze, since the surface temps started coming down. That was about this month's full moon, for me. A very slow troll, fishing vertically, & just a 1/16 oz. jig.
