      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 .

4 of us are going up to spend 4 days at Arnesens after Christmas and was wondering a couple of things. What depth will we be fishing in and what colors-baits should we be bringing up. Our just get everything we need at the resort.

Thanks in advance.

I have a trailer up at Arnesen's so I know the area pretty well. Our best luck the past few years has come on anything pink. Obviously everyday is different, but pink has definitely been the favorite. We have used rattle jigs with success and also angel eyes among other things. Some times they like heavier stuff and other times they like the fluttery stuff. Hard to tell until you get there. This past weekend we caught most of our fish on pink buckshot rattle jigs. You can pick them up before you go but they had plenty of jigs at the resort when we left on Sunday. Just don't be afraid to hammer that jig on and off the bottom. Many times you have to bounce that jig on the bottom to get the fish's attention and then they will come and hit the set line. Othger times, they will just hit the jig. Again, take a wait and see approach. Watch the vex and be ready. Our best luck was in 24-25 feet last weekend. The first day we had 8 and the second day we were 2 short of a limit for 4 guys plus 4 slotters. We also had our share of 'pout. If you have any other questions, feel free to drop me a line robert.nathe@target.com

I have fished off of Gull Rock for a few years now right after the first of the year. We have in general had very good luck. Last year we were set up 45 steps to the west of the Rock and nailed em. Not 44 or 46 steps, had to be 45. I will be there tomorrow and Saturday, I will try and let you know how it went.

The best advice with arnesen's is to rent there houses. They have the depth and the location of the fish figured out already. They will spread there houses out so you can fish rocks or mud. They really stay on top of things out there. They will be glad to tell you how to catch fish, and even come into your house and help you figure out the bite. Great choice! Fish....

      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

      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!
