      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 .

Well spent most of the day out there today and for the most part it was successful day. During the day caught a handful of cigars and a bonus 20" on the tip up! Night time came and it was on! I ended up coming home with 4 more eyes and some bonus slabs all over 12". The only thing is I was a little frustrated because I kept losing fish at the hole! I lost 6 eyes at the hole and 3 crappies at the hole too!

Delta, my day wasn't near as good. But did have a little action. 2 keepers for the day. Oh, and 1 bullhead. But there was a long time between them. I am going to give it 1 more outing where I'm at. If its no good, going to make a move. If you got any ideas or suggestions, let me know.

For some reason this guy has had the same problem lately. I have been fishing in shallow lakes and have a tendancy to smack the fish on the bottom of the hole and dislodge the hook, but Im teaching myself to just ease the fish up rather than horseing it and have landed more fish. Good luck fishing... BT

More or less losing the fish when I'm trying to get the vex out of the way. Usally I don't have that problem, but I forgot my transducer float. So I had to just leave it hang there. I typicaly leave a fair amount of cord out so that I can just grab the cord and pull the transducer out real quick. But tonight I had to grab the whole unit, which turned out to be a major pain!!!!

Fishingguy- the spot that I fished tonight is pretty close to where I have been fishing! There really isn't anyone out where I have been going lately, except for my buddies house! I'm going out again Monday with my dad, if you want to meet up that would be cool. Shoot me an e-mail!!

Delta - newbie to Lake Hanska here, was wondering what the report is on the ice out there? My brother in law and I just finished building our ice house and want to get our kids out there for a couple of nights on the lake. The house is made out of aluminum and is fairly light for the size (16x6.5) but my only means of getting it on the lake is behind my F150. I am looking at going this next Friday - Sunday. Any update you could offer me on ice conditions and whether this will work or not would be much appreciated! Thanks much. Jim

The NW side of the lake around Gieger landing and Godahl landing have a good 12"-13" of solid ice with a good amount of truck traffic. But after today she will be adding more ice! The SE access 8"-10" with minimal traffic! Fish are being caught in most areas, just have to put a little time in to find some structure.

zamboni- where have you fished Hanska when you have been out there?

I usually fish the southside, right across from the house that has the "MAIN STREET CAFE" sign on the front porch. I hear Geiger Pt is the place to be, but seems to be crowded all the time. I usually go out in the afternoon until just after dark.

I have to second delta on the ice situation by the SE landing. Most area do have 11" to 13", but I found a couple spots under snow that were 8". They are getting braver lately thou. 1 guy, last night, drove by my house within 30 yds or so heading to the northern shore, doing about 30mph! Lots of cracking, and water pushed out of my holes! Not me, atleast not yet. I'm still using my 4 wheeler.

I have found that in the SE area of the lake if you not in the exactly right spot its more than likely a bust. But there are other times there it is really good. If you fish the dredged areas you have a better chance of pin pointing fish due to more structure! I would say by next weekend most of the lake will be drivable by truck with the forcast temps. There is a lot of lake out there between Godahl landing the the park that is rarely ever touched!

Delta - thanks a ton for the info. I am planning on heading out early Friday. I will have to swing by the local baitshop and buy a map to find out where these landings are that you speak of. Thanks again, the information is much appreciated!

A few crappies and half-dozen bulls in the bucket...Ratsos and shrimpos tipped with a spike was the ticket for me today.

I have been fishing deeper as of late with some success. I've been fishing the bottom of the dropoffs in about 13fow. Jigging or bobber were equal in action, they didn't seem to perfer on over the other. Heading out tomorrow to try an area that I had good success late year. Will be fishing shallow though. Will post what I come up with after I return from fishing.

      The wife and I were up to L O W  for whole week. Great weather, good fishing and fun time. Was able to fish 7 days split up between Morris point, Long point and the river. For me Long point was the better bite. May have seen a couple members of outdoors Mn on Tuesday out of LP. Let me know if I'm right. Also met member from Wisc. at Morris point( real good guy) Anyway didn't seem to matter much what color jig caught them on every color with frozen shiner. Some days were better then others but always caught fish. Ate several meals of fish and brought fish home. Also caught a 14 in perch that I brought into taxidermist. Plan on going back at least one more time this fall . ( Too good not to).

      That the best sounding plan yet!! same to you and your party.

      Got some grouse and saw some nice coveys. The biggest was 6 birds but found couple groups of 5. That is always fun.
    • eyeguy 54
      we mainly jigged fatheads in front of their mouths. 2 weeks ago also and tried a few different times over 3 days this trip. water is still crazy low so I don't think many boats will be using access. Also tried a couple different plastics and some gulp. Probably ready to go crazy up there soon.  Last year at this time it was really good. Might get there once more before ice time but not sure.

      Been thinking about breaking out the Jiggin Raps, might have to give that a shot. It's been too crowded out there this weekend with MEA going on.
    • Wanderer
      Sounds good! May an oversized deer with obscenely large antlers find its way to you!  
    • DLD24
      Well the weather was pretty crappy but the fish were biting...Had to sort through but kept some for dinner. Caught a variety today, eyes,jumbos,crappie and a few smallies... rigging on or next to rocks worked best for us.

      hummm, hadn't heard a thing?
