      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 have not fished this lake for a few years. My family used to have a cabin on the south lake but we never ice fished it.

Does anyone fish Pine in the winter or would I be wasting my time driving up there to chase some panfish?

Actually, upper pine is a decent lake for crappie fishing in the winter. On the last point on the east side there is a green cabin, fish about 100 yards south of this northernmost point. Find 20 fow and drop down the line, I have a cabin on this lake and it has been fantastic in the winter when mille lacs has been slow.

woaa bigtime.... it may not be a good idea to give away specific locations. General info is great, and thanks for the providing it, but part of the fun is finding the hot spots on your own. Keep in mind that thousands of unregistered users lurk on this site and a good portion will flock to a hot spot that is posted. Needless to say, that spot will quickly become cold.

Hey Bigtime,

Thanks for sharing! Unfortunately john.wells is likely more right than we want him to be.

Unless, of course, thats a community spot which can get a person a good start. smile.gif

If Neighbor Guy is willing to take his neighbor guy with, I appreciate having a start spot.

We were just discussing the influx of people on spot X on Rush that yielded 20 crappies in an hour. But that one is the definition of a community spot. grin.gif

It would be nice to get some input from more unregistered users though! Whatya guys say? grin.gif

We have a cabin on Big Pine and have not done well in recent years except for a bunch of 4 inch perch. This past weekend we found 4-6 inches of slush in the aforementioned "Honey Hole" but 8 inches of good ice underneath. Haven't had the same luck on this lake in recent winters as mentioned above, unfortunately.

I wish it wasn't this way either. I don't want to come off sounding jaded, but regretably the reality speaks for itself. Big pine is no "secret" lake by any means, but there are spots that are better than others out there. I just wouldn't give the specifics, that's all.

I understand. Hope ya didn't think I was doggin ya about it. wink.gif

To add: I wish too, that there were more follow up reports from those who request info before going to Lake X. I see them sometimes but maybe 10% or so vs. asks. Just my thoughts.

Actually yeah, that spot is fished pretty heavily by locals. Dont want to offend anyone by giving up spots, that is one of mine. Not gonna catch any monsters but you will have a good time. There really isnt a secret on that lake, it can be cold one year and hot on others. Not too worried about seeing too many new folks, quite a hike to get to this spot, especially when the big pond is so close. I am going up there in the coming days and will post an update on what I find. Hope everyone has a happy new year, and good fishing.

      Wasn't sure, but I found it. looked like  you were cooking something on the grill.

      We were out near Taylors.  Couple boats and us and a pontoon and a pleasure boat cut right between us "sight seeing".  Blows my mind how they cut right between boats that are fairly close to each other fishing an area and cruise right through without a care in the world!  Del, I thought last year you figured out which place I had?

      Fuses are for fire protection. If you're willing to risk a fire in your boat if something goes awry, have at it. Your insurance company would be happy to have a good reason to keep all the premiums you've paid and refuse your claim. Hopefully no one will get injured or die in the fire.

      Are fuses necessary on an on board charger?  Manual chargers do not have them,  is there a reason for them on the on board charges. I was given a system with a bank that may not have been working correctly, possibly blowing the fuse repeatedly.  My system would not be hooked up to an alternator on the engine so I'm wondering if it is fine to use the charging bank without the fuses.  The orange charging light comes on when I hook the wires directly up to a battery. I'm asking because I don't want to go through the bother of wiring this thing in my boat if I can't get it to work right. Also, I would technically only need 2 of the 3 banks to work, but I like the idea of repairing it to its potential.

      Looking to get on some walleye and crappie this week, looks like mayflies were out in full force last night when I was on the lake. First year fishing this lake, where does a guy start?

      Thank you one and all, especially you Tommy. Some very kind words and ditto to you my friend. "Ace" "It's just fishing man"

      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
