      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 .

Shakedown Slough - FM Get-Together!

Come join the fun again this year chasing jumbo perch, sunfish, walleye and pike on Height of Land Lake, Sunday January 13, 2008. We will meet at the south access at 9am; the access is located on the south shore of SE bay, just off of MN Hwy 34 E, behind the bait shop. We will wait at the access until 930am and then proceed on to the ice for some fishing fun.

Height of Land is a great lake for multi-species angling excitement. HoL is a day-bite lake and can produce some nice jumbo perch and bluegills. Walleyes, pike and the occasional crappie are also possible. Waxies and teardrop jigs, finesse plastics, as well as jigging spoons are standard fare. We will mainly be fishing in 6-10 FOW; you will be able to see the fish down your hole for some sight fishing. There are a lot of northerns out there, but it seems as if the more you see, the better the panfishing will be!! We'll fish until whenever (usually dies down at dark).

Feel free to bring whatever you'd like to eat and drink, as food and beverage will not be provided.

Last year the cold weather hampered the bite, but those that attended had a great time. This event is open to everyone; bring your wife, children, friends and anyone else you would like. This is a great opportunity to meet and fish with other Fishing Minnesota members and a chance to meet new people and share fishing tips and stories.

Date: Sunday January 13, 2008

Location: Height of Land Lake, south access just off MN Hwy 34 E

Time: 9am to 430pm

I think it is about a 1.5 miles from the access, but we will likely be moving around a little bit. I wouldn't worry about getting around. There will be sleds and wheelers out there and I can give you (and others) a lift to the spot on my sled if you want, no problem. I imagine that some may be driving vehicles out as well.

I don't think driving out on HOL will be an issue.

I see others and my posts are missing, Cliffy twisted my arm and i will be there. I 2 will be needing some transportation on and off the lake. We should be there between 0900 and 0915 hours. Here is a dumb question, Is there bait close by or should i pick some up on the way out of town. I think one of our new members, Pike Pickler will also be there.

I think i will be there, but driving out, if anyone has a trailor that can be pulled out i can do that for anyone, i have a Jimmy so its lighter than a full sized vehicle so i think it will be ok. i will be grabbing a couple scoops of minnows for anyone to use. I will be in the maroon Jimmy.

I've got a two-up sled that can handle shuttling folks out to the spot. You could probably get bait at the gas station, but I would suggest getting what you need at your local shop, just to be safe.

I have never fished HOL, sounds interesting, count me in.

Hopefully the lake is driveable by truck and not to slushly.

<BTW> I will have room for another angler in my portable.

If the access is ok, driving out shouldn't be a problem. I've driven on Lida and Melissa and HOL freezes way before them. With a lot of the snowpack melted, and cold nights, the lake should be easily driveable. JP and I will probably take my permanent out Saturday night and set up base camp, and fish early morning to find some fish. We'll see you all there, hopefully the fish will cooperate.

I was out on Lida today and thought there was about 12-14 inches of ice...at least where i drilled. I just got a bad feeling about driving on the ice this year...but I guess if I see others driving out...I might just chance it as well.

Cliffy, if your gonna chance it in your truck, i may chance it with u, (in ur truck), im not comfortable driving the tundra out, but the 80's model snowmobile sounds fun. pike pickler said we could dump that heap and put his heap on the trailer, get with him on that idea. the perch

fisherdog:

I did ok considering it was my first time out this winter. I had been sick for a few weeks and I have heard so much about "bad ice" that I never really felt like going. So, yesterday I thought it would be a good day to try out the new portable (Yukon). I kept a few walleyes in the 15 inch range...and had to toss back a few in the 19, 20 range and one really nice 23-34 incher. The first bite was at 1130 and a flurry of action at 230 and then all went dead and I pulled office the ice at 430ish.

Cliffy.

      Well the weather was pretty crappy but the fish were biting...Had to sort through but kept some for dinner. Caught a variety today, eyes,jumbos,crappie and a few smallies... rigging on or next to rocks worked best for us.

      hummm, hadn't heard a thing?

      Good luck. Maybe we will see you Friday. I will let you know how things are looking by us as the weekend goes by.

      I still hope it's double!  I just went over the map with my brother and talked about our options.  We have enough places to go for sure.  It's always fun planning and talking about past hunts. I put out the question to the other two guys about staying in camp vs the house.  We'll see what they decide.  I hauled our "cabin" home from Ely today so we should have plenty of room if they wanna camp.

      Did a few off season projects waiting for Ice. - Underwater camera, Fish Finder, Wheel house mods and the latest converting a 2 cycle Jiffy Lite 90 to an ION battery auger. Got the auger off Craiglist for $10, Drill for $15. Second stage of gear box is a 5 to 1 reduction so got the auger blade to turn at about 250 RPM which I feel is an ideal speed. Gear reduction also doubled the torque of the motor drive. Planning to use the Dewalt 20V ION battery as I already have charger and now converting one of the 1.5 AH batteries to either 9 or 12 AH.  If anyone needs a mid 80's Jiffy Lite 90 motor and clutch PM me. Has great compression, never tried to start it.  Price somewhere between free and a gift. If you did a project this summer, would you care to share them? DJ ION Auger HB.mp4  << Click link for video

      You may want to consider #3 ; Rapala Jiggin Raps, or drop shoting. They both have been putting some nice size suspended slabs topside under some breezy conditions as of late. Fishing sure was downright epic the last week for all species. To bad it looks like "global warmering" is coming to an end for this year, was awesome while it lasted...... Those are some decent perch panman54. LOL!

      Pretty remote and flat back there. I haven't been on that exact shoreline but I bet you can pull a boat up there quite easily.

      I didnt hear how the second day went yet.  The long term average is 8% success up to 10% during the 2 deer era.  so 5.7% isnt bad for day 1.   Cooler weather will hopefully help us second weekenders. I havent seen much for rubs or scrapes here yet, should be starting any day.
