      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 .

What's the Word From 12 Mile?

Recommended Posts

1tofish

With the nice weather in our future,

I was thinking on venturing out with

the portables.

Anybody been to 12 Mile lately? Any large

cracks to contend with? Many houses out

there? How was the fishing?

I've been only fishing Zipple so far, we've

been catching fish, but need a little change

of scenery. Thanks for any info....

Later,

I have'nt been out there but a friend of mine was out there in an Arnesons hut last week and he said they plain slayed the nice Walters out there.

Looking from Babblers road there is quite the shantytown out there. If your going by sled/atv you should'nt have a problem.. Could'nt tell you if folks are making it there via p/u though?

Man oh man 2 winters now I've wanted to fish some fall spots around Clementson on the early ice and have'nt?? So many spots/fish so little time eh!

Check Clementson resorts website for the day by day scoop over thatta way. Last report I saw they were saying like 10-12 inches with some bad spots here and there.

Dutchman Doug may chime in with a conditions report for you too, he's just a coupla miles downstream from Clementson.

Winters past I've seen vehicles on the ice all over the river. This year with the current and funny ice it's a bit different! I know folks are driving on the river around the airport but I dunno if I would!

We are really mixing forums here but not too much activity on the river forum lately. If interested go to the Rainy River forum. I'll post the little bit I know.

We were in an Arnesen hut out there for 2 days on 12/29 and 12/30. First day in 25 FOW only managed to keep 7 but all nice eating walleyes. Second day switched to a house in 30 FOW and did much better keeping 14 mix of Sauger and Walleye. Probably should have done better, but not everybody in the house (4 guys) were gettin into the fish, glad I was into them, a blast. Small gold jig-a-bit and fatty got most, got a few on a Gold Angel Eye, but seemed like bobbers did better.

      The wife and I were up to L O W  for whole week. Great weather, good fishing and fun time. Was able to fish 7 days split up between Morris point, Long point and the river. For me Long point was the better bite. May have seen a couple members of outdoors Mn on Tuesday out of LP. Let me know if I'm right. Also met member from Wisc. at Morris point( real good guy) Anyway didn't seem to matter much what color jig caught them on every color with frozen shiner. Some days were better then others but always caught fish. Ate several meals of fish and brought fish home. Also caught a 14 in perch that I brought into taxidermist. Plan on going back at least one more time this fall . ( Too good not to).

      Got some grouse and saw some nice coveys. The biggest was 6 birds but found couple groups of 5. That is always fun.

      we mainly jigged fatheads in front of their mouths. 2 weeks ago also and tried a few different times over 3 days this trip. water is still crazy low so I don't think many boats will be using access. Also tried a couple different plastics and some gulp. Probably ready to go crazy up there soon.  Last year at this time it was really good. Might get there once more before ice time but not sure.

      Been thinking about breaking out the Jiggin Raps, might have to give that a shot. It's been too crowded out there this weekend with MEA going on.

      Sounds good! May an oversized deer with obscenely large antlers find its way to you!

      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.
    • ANYFISH2
      hummm, hadn't heard a thing?
    • ANYFISH2
      Good luck. Maybe we will see you Friday. I will let you know how things are looking by us as the weekend goes by.
