      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 .

Sarah this weekend

Recommended Posts

Eric Wettschreck

Guys and gals....... Myself, Mrs boilerguy (for a while), and Harvey Lee will be fishing Sarah this weekend. There will be a few others that come and go, I'm sure. If you are interested in joining in, all are invited. We're going to target perch during the day and switch over to walleye in the evening/night.

I have a maroon 87 Chev pickup. It has Ice Leaders and Fishing Minnesota decals on the rear windshield. We'll be in a blue fish house with white trim. We will be getting on the lake from the county park on the west side. If you are out there, stop on by, have a beverage of your choice, meet and greet, and give us your GPS coordinates of your hot spots!!! grin.gif

On my way Sunday morning to wake you bums up... After discussions last night I am going to bring "MNman" with me as well. Don't catch all the perch on Saturday! I will give you a buzz about what angle you would like the sun before we show up. Also let me know if you will need refills of suds!

I may have to get in on some sarah action sunday but I wont be able to tell you until tomorrow night as it depends on how the gills cooperate tomorrow. We will likely be there though. how much ice is up that way? Foot traffic, 4 wheeler traffic, truck?

sounds like a plan. I'm pretty sure were going to make it. I dont have a total count for today but it's nothing too great. If I wouldnt have gotten two eyes out of a SW MN lake right before dark it would have been alot worse.

Well fellas, things surely did not turn out the way I wished. The Mrs and I hit the lake Friday after work. One stinkin eye all night. Harvey Lee showed up Saturday and nothing all day. We crashed at my place and figured we'd take a stab at it Sunday morning.........nothing. mad.gif There was a fairly serious exodus of fish houses leaving the past couple of days. No worries, the bite will come back.

Chris, good to see ya again. Were you planning on going to the Otter Run next weekend?

CC, I'll give you a call sometime this week.

Unfortunately our day didn't improve much after we left you guys. we headed to shetek talked to a few guys who had been there all morning and even had a bite so we then proceded to bean where we caught several small fish after a couple hours of that we checked Double, Long, Louisa, Oaks, Talcot and fished the lake I mentioned to you. It was such a well kept secret that there were only two other people and all we seen we a few small ones. That was the last place we fished but we checked out East and West Graham on the way back to Worthington and there were people on both but from what i've heard they have both been night bites.

I am still planning on the Otter Run this weekend but it would sure be nice if I didn't have to make the trip by myself.

I have to talk to CC and I'll e-mail ya. I will probably meet up in Windom. If you are coming from Worthington maybe you can hook up with CC around his place???? I'll be calling him tomorrow to set things up. If we meet in Windom we should meet up at around 5 or so.

I work real close to Windom so we can all stash our trucks and stuff we arn't bringing where I work. No one will mess with it there.

I have a 4 door crew cab and I will be pulling my trailer with the wheeler on it, so whatever you bring we should be able to accomodate, Krull, I will shoot you an email tomorrow as to when we can meet up at my place, then you can just jump in and we can go. I figure hour 45 to hour 50 to get there from Brewster. I was thinking we should leave no later than 4:45am. I will be bringing my small 2 man frabill gt prowler.

Here we go. Why don't Chris and CC hook up at CC's place, and meet up with me in the Runnings parking lot in Windom at 5 am.

CC, how about you leave your Frabil at home, and I'll bring my Voyager. It's a little bigger and will give us more room for when you start processing chili. grin.gif

To tell you the truth, I really have no where to put my portable other than where it stays all winter long... the back of my truck. I would put it in my suburban but the wife is going to need to use the 3rd seat this weekend. And we don't want to make mamma mad. Eric, do you have a cover for your sled? if so, we can put it in the trailer or we can just lift it on top of mine it the back of my truck... I have a topper by the way. My trailer has full sides. I think we are fine if we all wanted to bring our own, not that we have to, but I think we can, we should though converg and use only one auger and such. that would save major space. I will be totally honest when I say my personal auger is not the best. Eric you saw what we use when I fish with the rest of the crew I own perm houses with... yep the Nils. Not sure if they will let me take it, but I will try. Give me tomorrow to get caught back up at work after two screwy weeks with holidays in the middle and I will get in touch with both of you Thursday for sure.

      I fished shakopee lake in onamia on monday it had ten inches of good ice. Lots of air bubbles but seemed solid. I would guess most lakes in the area have enough to at least walk on but u can never trust ice so be carfull bring spud bar and ice picks and a friend just in case
    • Wanderer
      Thanks for the shout out Moose.  I have plans to go out this weekend but to another lake.  I’ll ask if the other party wants to stick to those plans or head east instead.
    • Wanderer
      Yep, that’s what I’ve heard.  I’ve used loose powder quite a bit before.  My first ML was Hawken kit gun in 50 cal.  True black powder in an actual powder horn.  Patch and ball.   The only thing I didn’t like about ML season back then is I couldn’t wear the traditional clothes too!
    • Naturboy
      Lots of fresh ice out there. With the snow we have gotten the last few days you won’t be able to see the difference between the older and newer ice so don’t forget to check. There were open water spots on most lakes 2 days ago that are now covered. CHECK for your self.  Also lots of trash already on a lake I was on, slobs, throw it in your own car if you don’t mind looking at it.

      If he is going to fish them from a kayak I would suggest getting him a boga grip that way he can get it out of the water  
    • Borch
      Thanks for arranging this MM.  Wish I could make it.  I'm sure it'll be a great time!

      I heard of a ranger/ice castle out from the Pelican access last weekend.  Any truth to that?  Some people have no fear.
    • huntnfish
      You will like the Blackhorn powder as long as you are used to using loose powder and not pellets. It burns much cleaner making reloads much easier. I clean my muzzleloader the same way as all my other guns now. Just remember that you don't have to use as many grains of powder with the 209. The max recommended is 120 grains. I shot 100 grains of pyrodex but dropped to 90 with the 209.
