      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 .

First off I wanted to thank Mike's Bait Shop for giving me infomation about the lake and it's regulations. We did pretty good out there during the morning hours as we landing 2 walleyes and a northern. The eyes were pretty fat, one at 18 inches and the other at 19... three pretty good hits came off assuming it be eyes... alot of lookers and also caught a few sunnies... will be back there this weekend. Ice thickness ranged from 6 to 9 inches. Good luck out there and be safe.

Nice report, Rich at Mikes bait does a nice job keeping up with the area reports and will always steer you in the right direction. Ask him about fishing Mille lacs sometime, he's got alot of experience on the big pond too!

Does anyone know where the rock bottoms are at??? Just looking to try something new up there... had a map but lost it... I don't like fishing with the crowds so if you guys go up and see a couple of portables in the middle of nowhere... thats us...

I agree, the guys at the bait shop are top-notch!

I spent a few hours on Green the other day and the fishing was very good. Caught a lot of gills in the shallows, with some nice crappies mixed in. The crappies came through only a couple feet below the ice and were very aggressive. Also managed to land a few bass and broke off on about a 10 pound pike by the hole. Also watched a few walleyes swim by that were not interested. Size 8 Ratsos, no bait, we the hot ticket. Pink head with a white body... 6-7 feet of water...

Made it back up there and found the school of crappies. Alot of 8 inchers but manage to get a few plus sizes for the frying pan. Snow made it real hard to pull our portables but was worth it. Saw some really nice northerns on the camera but they weren't interested in our shiners. Again caught alot of blue gills but were small. Thinking about going back up there this coming weekend. Good luck.

Only on the very south part of the lake. However, i would not drive a vehicle out quite yet. The lake has slush and snow, not exactly helping with the safety of the ice. Ice seems to be around 8" on south end. No roads plowed yet.

My fish truck is a hair heavier, so i think I will wait. It may be old and rusty, but I don't want to turn it into a submarine just yet!

I usually fish Glyers bay for crappies and is that were you guys are having the best luck? I heard down by little Green has been good as well. Most important question, I am planning on taking the four wheeler and hauling two shacks on the snowmobile trailer. Will this be an impossible dream with the snow/slush or is it packed down from snowmobile traffic back to the bay.

Thanks for the help

      With 2 trout stamps you can keep double your limit. You heard it here first on the interwebs!  Me and Mr Williams will swing by and say Hi this winter in Ely.   That is, if we can get around your sled!!  Happy Thanksgiving!

      don't  give them any ideas!

       There is probably not going to be much ice to speak of  if the forecast holds true. They are talking 50s on Friday, Sunday and Monday. Any ice we did have will most likely be gone, unfortunately.
    • snowfighter
      Haven't been out looking but things have been froze up for awhile. Heard there was some out on Bowstring last week.

      Wife you dummy  I know the problem first hand !!
    • MJ1657
      It's that time of year. Cone on up and see if you can claim the Nord Lord. Spearing in the Third River Flowage in Winnie. Pizza party Friday night in the lodge potluck in the ice Saturday at noon.   Any questions hollar.

      Saw something interesting on forest lake this morning...lake was completely locked up, yet someone had launched their boat and was trudging through the ice! That’s dedication! Anyone have any ice updates to report?

      2 Trout stamps.  Did I miss something and need to go back and get another?
    • Wanderer
      The 200 foot rule gets me a little but it has to be defined somehow what is occupied and what isn’t.   So for a wheelhouse we get to buy tabs to have on the road and a sticker to have it on the ice and go away for a little while.  Seems pretty close to double taxation since any LE can find out who the owner is from the current plate. Plus the spear shack that I might want to keep up over the weekend.  2 tags plus license. Combination sports license 2 trout stamps Waterfowl stamps Pheasant stamp  Turkey license (stamp now included) Deer license for all seasons   The bucket is getting heavy with all the drops in it.
