      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 .

We finally made it to MIlle Lacs yesterday (tues 18th ) we headed to the flats, ( Scott is great at putting us on the fish ) a bit scary once we got to the end of Hunters plowed road, but we knew where we wanted to go - soooo, off road we went and it was worth it!!!

11 eyes, the ones we got on the ice ( we lost a few ) where from 19.5 to 26.25 inches

An Awesome day laugh.gif

Nice work! I ventured way out from Hunters during this week last year and did pretty well as well. It's nice having the lake to yourself. How was the travel across the lake, still a lot of wet slush it looks like? How thick was the ice? Find any real thin spots?

Reelemin: Some awfully nice fish, great pics. Looks like being chained up was a good idea considering the slush thats pretty evident in the pic. thanks for sharing. Bill

thanks - it was an awesome day, the slush was real bad in spots, travel was difficult once we ventured off of Hunters road. Anything smaller than a 700 ATV or snowmobile would have a very hard time.

"Crappicatcher" they were just recomendations. I'm sure you could make it out there with a 250 if you stick a bunch of money into like you did. Why pick apart peoples posts? By the way everyone is impressed that you have big wheels and lift kit on yours! tongue.gif

Nice post reelemin!

Nice post reelemin!


I am not braggin it up just saying. It sounds kind of discouraging for us little CC's guys that want to come up and get out like they did. The way they make it sound is that it is impossible with nothing less.

I believe I said it would be very difficult. We had a hard time, with a Suzuki 700 King Quad with chains on all 4 wheels! Just don't want anyone to get stranded, cuz there is not alot of people out there to help if you do.

If you go - be safe

I just got off the phone with a couple buddies that have done very well this am (Friday) on the walleyes. They went out on a sled and a quad with chains. The sled was fine, but I can't even used the words he used to describe the trek on a quad. Chains are a must. Be careful and have fun!

thanks for the update. And words of caution. Hopefully with the melting and then refrezzing things will get better.

Thanks for the clarification...

Maybe I will take the sled out there instead.

Just got back from Mille Lacs, we had 2 sportsman 500's out 1 with tracks the other with stock tires. Neither machine had any troubles getting around the area we went out was mostly solid, not to much slush. We fished NE of Isle.

Ended up with one 33" Northern which was CPR'd.

Hey somethingfishy nice northern, I saw you out there. I was on the other side of the perm shacks, with the blue fish trap pro which my dad was in and I was wearing the red jacket jumping around holes. My dad had talked to you a little before you caught the northern I think. Did you get any walleye at all? We didn't catch any eyes, and we were out there since about 10am. We got some good perch, but there were a ton more small ones around. But I got my biggest perch ever after dark, a 12 incher.

I saw you out there hole hopping in the sleeting rain. Sounds like you had better luck than us. Caught and released the pike and caught one other perch at that location. We weren't very productive but still had a good time fishing. We got out on the lake about 10:30 and tried a few spots. Didn't see any eyes or much for fish on the camera besides a few bait size perch. Congrats on the jumbo. It was a great day to be on the lake.

Something Fishy, That spot you were fishing is a great producer of Pike on Mille Lacs. I fish that deep water edge in the open water quite a bit and catch a lot of nice fat pike trolling raps in the summer and fall. It's a nice spot to kill some time when the eyes are shut off. Never seems to be too many walleyes around there for some reason. Probably because of all the pike roaming around in there....Nice fish, thanks for the pic.

      Well, I have to pay for registration on my boat trailer to run it on the road, and the boat to run it on the lake, why shouldn't wheel houses?  I guess I don't feel bad for the wheel house guys.

      No not yesterday. 2 weeks ago when we had that first cold spell I went out on Baxter, Blue and Long and checked the ice. They were locked up but only had 1-2" inches so didn't venture out too far. Baxter probably was walkable but had open water on the back end so figured I stay off. Last Sunday I went and checked them out after that warm rainy week we had and they had open water, so yesterday I skipped checking them and went farther north. But I did notice most lakes were locked up on the drive up there. Cant wait for the local lakes to get some decent ice!

      Wondering if big sandy is clear enough to spear fish when the ice comes on? Never done it before and would like to give it a try
    • monstermoose78
      Bryan did you check any lakes around me?
    • Bryan P
      Had to scratch the ice fishing itch, so I drove up north to the Mille Lacs lake area and found a smaller lake with 4-5" of ice. Punch a few holes and found some crappies and sunnies. Nothing big but was fun time and a great way to start my ice seaso n! Bring on the ice!  Check out the video: https://youtu.be/BTTv_G07PB8

      Hey, I resemble that remark!!   Plus my wife only went fishing with me once the whole time that we have been married and she brought a book! I got her trained in right away. Sorry about your training problem!
    • leech~~
      Ok but with all those Trout. Bring a tow rope as I may be stuck in the slush!
