      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 .

I am guessing it will not really be an issue this year. The ice is about 10 inches and we have about 3 weeks to make the necessary requirements. Its pretty cold out now so it'll be gaining a little more.

Good Luck with the truck!

According to the story I found on the internet. The Crow Wing

county sheriff's office says there are 11 to 14 inches of ice on Gull Lake's Hole in the Day Bay. Next week there is supposed to be a good cold snap come through so things sound good. Is there anyone else that has heard anything differant?

Hole in the Day Bay. And If you have a LakeMaster or Navionics chip that is the best map. Lowrance has a decent at5 map for free on there website for on your lowrance units.

The extravaganza is on Hole in the Day Bay right off HWY 371 just south of Nissiwa. Try the DNR Lake Finder for a map. When it askes for county it would be Crow Wing.

If you are looking for a good map of the contest area. Stop in at the shop before the contest. As an in store free-be we have been handing out free contest area maps for the last 6-7 years. Could be the difference maker.

Unfortunately I won't be able to fish the extravaganza but I will be working it for security. Looking forward to meeting a bunch of people and hopefully seeing some nice fish! Best of luck to everybody, maybe one year I'll be able to fish it one year!

You can use anything you would normally use for fishing. You just can't bring any type of shelter. Otherwise everything is fair game. Good luck to you guys, have fun.

Just to add to Jason's comment. You can also test the depth with weighted lines prior to the start but if the officials catch you with a hook on your line, they'll tear your ticket up without a second chance. Another question has been can I run my camera or put the real weeds down an adjacent hole. The rule states that you are only allowed one hole per ticket so what ever you are putting in the water needs to be down your hole or you will need a second ticket to use another hole.

      Pearl Lake has been lights out for crappies in that 10+ inch range this year, finally,  find 13-16 fow and then drill holes until you see suspended fish. When you find them I like a 1/10oz. Swedish pimple (silver/glow) with 2 waxies, keep it above the fish and they’ll come up for it.

      I heard reports Friday of 3-5 inches out of Bayport.

      I'm on vacation until January 2nd if anyone wants to meet up and go fishing let me know I've got all my own gear 95% of the time I fish alone. Willing to drive anywhere or help with gas or what ever. Going to try a local lake in the morning for some eyes and panfish unless someone has any other suggestions. Mostly a CPR guy but it's also nice to occasionally bring some home for the family.

      Still pheasant hunting and still seeing lots of birds!  Went out an afternoon this past week and saw about 75 in 2.5 hours.  Went home with my 3 roosters.  Everything is froze good now so its easy walking and there's fresh snow.

      Welcome to FM, Some lakes near you that are good and have some quality  are Ann,Knife and Fish to the East and the Briggs chain to the West.  Look for green vegetation or mud basin bug hatches for action. 
    • monstermoose78
      Sure helps to find them when you have some of the top panfish anglers around helping
    • IceHawk
      Good fish Rick way to find some quality fish in a highly pressured area. Takes skill to be able to accomplish that. Maybe run into you one of these days out there
    • IceHawk
      Nice fish guys looked like a good time was had . That lake has some quality for sure. Figured you guys would dial them in.
    • Jory
      Not new to ice fishing but I can't seem to find the fish anymore around my neck of the woods in foley mn. so if anyone could give great insight of lakes times and maybe hints of baits and area of the lake would be awesome.
