FYI.

Rick and the IT crew is in the middle of making some upgrades within the site as well as working on some of the speed issues we have had. For this particular forum and other forums, as you can see, the "sticky" posts are gone. This, amongst many other things, are being worked on. Thank you for your patience with this.

Really like the new set-up. By moving the forum events to that area, it now seems less cluttered.

I see it only shows total replies on the topics now as opposed to the total replies and most recent replies (per each time we log in). Is already making things confusing trying to remember which reply was the last one I read everytime I log on...makes things very tough on the topics with more than 20 or so responses. Are the IT guys gonna put that back to the way it was?

We are working on the forums and some changes are taking place to speed them up. We do not know how long the process will take.

Again, please be patient with this whole deal. Just because you see something now that may be different, doesn't mean it will be in place forever.

Thanks. I'll be sure to pass that along.

UPDATE: Rick is still crankin'. The changes that we have seen to this point are only temporary. There will be a formal announcement once the leaf has been turned, so please hang in there. We're in for a real treat. As for the questions on PM's, when it's all said and done, they will NOT be available.

Stay tuned...

We took a valid shot at it anyway. However, don't worry; you'll like the end result. Think of it as another Christmas present.

UPDATE: The bulk of the upgrade has been completed and Rick is now working on the finishing touches with the IT staff on a separate server. We do not see any of these changes yet, so please hang in there! I think you'll all like what you see.

I most certainly hope that our login history (the red () that show what you read)will be back. I sure hate reading the same post, over,over,over and over again. Not knowing when the last time I logged on was, what I already read and didn't read. I guess it doesn't matter if we log in or not as their probibly isn't any difference. Just venting, but this sucks as a login user. I'm gonna go read for Lakeiwanttobethere, but I have to start from 11/05.

There are some changes that could occur yet before all is done. Please bear with us all and when its done it will probably look somewhat different. All of these changes are for better speed and a better FM.

Thanks for your patience.

Lonnie,

Thanks for the input. Your concern and many others have all been taken into consideration and are in the process of being looked into.

UPDATE: Rick looked over a draft of the updates today with the IT staff but found some areas that still need tweaking. The changes will be announced and visible as soon as possible. As Tom mentioned, we thank you all for your patience with this but in the end, it's for the better.

UPDATE: The forum upgrade is completed other than some adjustments Rick needs to make. What Rick has to do could take 5 - 10 days barring any unexpected "challenges". The "new" FM is just around the corner! grin.gif

      Went out to Otter Lake (next to Bald Eagle) on Wednesday, a lake filled with hammerhandles and could barely make out three small pike in the dirty water before giving up.  Was up on a lake in the Horseshoe chain that is also supposed to be filled with small pike and saw zero but the wife caught a small on a tip-up.  At least a big catfish came in and sat at the bottom of the hole for well over an hour.

      Only a few tiny ones..... Pays to get the hell away from the crowd...

      That’s a bucket list trip for me.  No reason that I haven’t been there yet outside of the fact it isn’t in my normal territory.  And that’s an ironic statement for me to make! Come to think of it, I should just plan it and go.  It’ll never happen otherwise.  Anybody got any pointers for heading that direction?  I wouldn’t even know where to start.  Pretty self sufficient for gear and travel and could figure it out eventually but a helping hand or even a guide reference would be appreciated.

      The ice is gone now. More than likely won't be anymore this year.

       that reminds me the batteries on that GPS tracker hid somewhere on your truck are running low. The red blinking light on the base unit here at home, sure has been annoying. Can't believe it showed you were out fishing in the wind, close to home anyway, today.

      Upper Red nears record winter harvest Ice fishing on Upper Red Lake has slowed in recent weeks, but the walleye harvest is on track to set or approach a wintertime record, numbers from an annual winter creel survey show. According to Henry Drewes, regional fisheries supervisor for the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources in Bemidji, anglers through January had kept about 125,000 pounds of walleyes. The wintertime high for Minnesota's portion of the lake was slightly more than 140,000 pounds in 2015, DNR statistics show. Anglers harvested 109,327 pounds of walleyes in the winter of 2017, according to DNR creel survey results. "If we have an average February, we'll be right in that area" of 140,000 pounds, Drewes said. "Catch rates and pressure have really tapered off in the last (few weeks). I think that's related to winter fatigue and a slower bite." Wheel houses, which have exploded in popularity among winter anglers in recent years, now account for more than 80 percent of the ice fishing pressure on Upper Red, Drewes said. Anglers on Upper Red can keep four walleyes, of which only one can be longer than 17 inches. Walleye and northern pike season on Upper Red and other Minnesota inland waters closes Sunday, Feb. 25 and reopens Saturday, May 12. The Minnesota DNR manages 48,000 acres of Upper Red, while the remaining 72,000 acres are within the boundary of the Red Lake Indian Reservation and managed by the Red Lake Band of Chippewa. -- Brad Dokken Grand Forks Herald

      Same for me on Green by Princeton once it got dark the fish started biting. I was marking them and only had 4 bites while the sun was up. 
    • JBMasterAngler
      Was on North Center yesterday. Crappies were easy to find, but they would not bite for nothing! Somehow coaxed 2 into biting, so I avoided the skunkaroo. The vexilar began to light up more, and the fish began to move up and down the column a little bit more as evening progressed. So maybe, the bite would have picked up as the sun went down. However, by then, the kids were ready to leave, so maybe I’ll find out next time. On a side note, this was by far the thickest ice I’ve drilled through (30 to 32 inches) with my ion in the 3 years I’ve had it. Was impressed.
