      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 .

Waska Weekend

Recommended Posts

Slideout

Heading to Waska this Friday with the wife. There is concern with the truck falling through the other day, and we planned on pulling the sleeper on ice with the 1/2 ton. We typically fish off Don Sacks drive - not sure what bay that is. Has there been other truck/fishouse travel lately?

I would advise against it. Minnewaska's got a history of crappy ice, remember last year? Besides, it's not even thick enough now.

I know this post is late but I fished in a couple of spots last night and found between 12-14 inches. No doubt snow cover was the main factor. No pressure ridges that I know of at this point. As for Stradics post... Waska had great ice last year. What it also had was some pretty drastic changes in temps that early on brought on pressure ridges and when she started making ice that just exasperated the problem. Just MIO.........

Yeah Scaup, I guess that's what I meant. Early on the ice was crap with all the pressure ridges and didn't a few wheelers even go in even though everyone thought the ice was "safe"?

I was out to waska on thursday/friday evenings and we pulled a 24' house that weighed about 5,500 lbs no problem with a full size 1/2 ton. Thursday night when we got up there we didn't venture too far from the plowed roads. Friday morning though we went exploring ice conditions a little more and found plenty of ice to get out to a good spot. Don't get me wrong though, we stayed on the plowed roads and checked thouroughly before pulling off the road. We found anywhere from 12-19" out there. We got a few nasty looks after we pulled out there, but we kept 'er real slow and had no problems. Fishing was pretty good too!

Heading out to Minnewaska on Wednesday and staying until sometime on Friday Never fished it before, but I'm willing to give it a shot. I think we are headed to the Starbuck side of the lake. If you see a black chevy w/black topper pulling a 18' v-front stop and say hello.

      Lauren (Bubba) Sawatsky has a storage facility just north of Cook on 24.  Might give him a call. http://www.vermilionbarginginc.com/htmls/storage.html 218 666 5512

      There is a problem with the latency of satellite.  Makes loading pages slow.    I agree that a cell phone data plan/hotspot is your best bet.  I think Verizon on East end, and ATT on West end are the choices.   ATT has a tower near Cook, and on south shore of Frazier as mentioned.

      The crappie bite here has been very fussy, almost like ice fishing. So windy it's been tough to fish the way they seem to want it, most of the time.

      4 outfits out here right now.

      Fall fishing is so solid on Lake of the Woods right now. The fish may bite a different times everyday but they bite, and bite good, everyday. Had Pete Smith in the boat Thursday and it really couldn't have gone any better. Check it out, this weeks NCOR LOTW Fishing Report from Curt's NCOR Guide Service

      5.7% success in warm, breezy weather.  Hopefully that doubles for next weekend.  I think the weather will be a little cooler at least. I only heard 1 field report.  2 does and 2 fawns sighted. 1 in the morning and 3 in the evening.   I've heard area reports the deer are starting to move but not much for scrapes and such.  The leaves have been coming down and the woods opening up.  I've personally seen the deer start and stop using some areas as fall has set in.

      Hello, I'm from Chicago but I have a lot of family in Rochester. I come up for a week every few months and always do great fishing for Large mouth. I was hoping to find some spots to specifically target Pike that are within 30 mins of Rochester. I will be mainly shore fishing.  Thank you

      Got up to Bowstring again at Geigers Trails End Resort. Went up to get some crappies nd found them but again could not get one to bite out deep.  One spot they were 7 feet thick ! LOL   So we chased perch and did great. No 12 inchers but a lot of dandies. Not sure if I will get back up before ice.  Crappies should be great this winter.
