      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 .

Wheelhouse and first trip to Mille Lacs

Recommended Posts

luv2fish

I have never ice fished Mille Lacs before, and have a new 16' wheelhouse. We had it up on Red after christmas and had a blast. Now myself and a couple of buddies have a kitchen pass for next weekend. We would like to try Mille Lacs. Any resorts out there that cater to wheelhouses (plow me a spot off the road for a fee)? I have a 4 wheeler, but have not pulled the house with it yet. So if there is enough ice I would love to pull it with my truck. Then use the wheeler to check out other parts of the lake.

Thanks in advance

I think any of the 3 sponsers at the top of this page would be happy to accomodate you. You will likely have to pay extra to have them plow for you.

Just as general advice If you plan on pulling the house much with the 4 wheeler consider buying a set of chains for the back tires. They help alot.

Jay at Wilderness Warmth has roads that are being driven out on by half tons, and smaller skid houses are going out, but I haven't seen very many pickups pulling wheel houses at all. The road is good, so pulling with wheeler would not be a problem, tho. See the other posting I replied to here a little while ago about Wilderness Warmth for ice condition and ice road details from Tuesday. Jay will bust the road berm open and make a driveway for a fee, we got a nice sized drive and spot plowed for a 20-spot. Look for his F-250 with big yellow V-plow or a Suzuki Samurai with a straight plow. You will likely need blocking, we've been over by Anderson's reef and toward Mazominee point in our skidhouse, and had a couple-few inches of flooding in both spots.

Why is it that you have to pay for the roads, then pay again to have the piles of snow created by the road clearing? Kinda sounds like a government deal. Kinda bogus if you ask me.

Yeah, it might. But what you will hear on here is that's the way the resorts make some of their money in the winter. PLUS you're getting a custom plow job to your own spot. PLUS gas isn't cheaper for the resort owners. PLUS you don't have to go up there if you don't want to.

Otis, you could always buy your own plow and bring it up if you think that is cheaper...?

Its a service industry, and where there is equipment involved it is not cheap.

      With 2 trout stamps you can keep double your limit. You heard it here first on the interwebs!  Me and Mr Williams will swing by and say Hi this winter in Ely.   That is, if we can get around your sled!!  Happy Thanksgiving!

      don't  give them any ideas!

       There is probably not going to be much ice to speak of  if the forecast holds true. They are talking 50s on Friday, Sunday and Monday. Any ice we did have will most likely be gone, unfortunately.
    • snowfighter
      Haven't been out looking but things have been froze up for awhile. Heard there was some out on Bowstring last week.

      Wife you dummy  I know the problem first hand !!
    • MJ1657
      It's that time of year. Cone on up and see if you can claim the Nord Lord. Spearing in the Third River Flowage in Winnie. Pizza party Friday night in the lodge potluck in the ice Saturday at noon.   Any questions hollar.

      Saw something interesting on forest lake this morning...lake was completely locked up, yet someone had launched their boat and was trudging through the ice! That’s dedication! Anyone have any ice updates to report?

      2 Trout stamps.  Did I miss something and need to go back and get another?
    • Wanderer
      The 200 foot rule gets me a little but it has to be defined somehow what is occupied and what isn’t.   So for a wheelhouse we get to buy tabs to have on the road and a sticker to have it on the ice and go away for a little while.  Seems pretty close to double taxation since any LE can find out who the owner is from the current plate. Plus the spear shack that I might want to keep up over the weekend.  2 tags plus license. Combination sports license 2 trout stamps Waterfowl stamps Pheasant stamp  Turkey license (stamp now included) Deer license for all seasons   The bucket is getting heavy with all the drops in it.
