      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 .

Do you carry Slender spoons?

I'd like to get some and I always stop at your store to get minnows anyways when I get to Ely.

From the reports I'm getting, the 4 wheeler may not work.

I'm taking a test spin 7:30 in the morning with a snow machine and will let you know what I encounter.

One person found a lot of slush and 4 inches of ice on Burntside yesterday, so the fables of 10-12 inches of ice all over are just that, fables.

Another had fished Found lake off the Moose chain, same thing, 4 inches of ice and lottsa slush.

Jim, anyone who says there's 10-12 inches of ice ALL OVER Bside is, as you say, telling tales. But nor is the four inches of ice and lots of slush a universal Bside ice report, either.

I'll be testing out my tuned-up auger off Van Vac sometime tomorrow and will give an updated report just for that area.

There was 8-10 inches of strong ice in all the spots on Van Vac Bay I drilled just before we got that big Christmas dump of snow, and we'll see if it's been cold enough since the recent three-day melt to tighten up the wet snow/slush.

The sheltered bays that froze early and took lots and lots of snow just plain suck when it comes to ice/slush conditions, while many of the more open areas were better off.

But this weekend will tell. I'll not only be fishing. I'll be tooling around looking at different ice conditions, as I'm sure will be JustinG, G.O. and a bunch of other folks.

More Bside ice reports to come! grin.gif

Thanks, ST. I appreciate the info and offer. I found some smaller Slender Spoons in town here. Tried them on a stocked rainbow trout lake this morning. Looked good in the water but didn't hook anything. Nothing else did either so I can't complain.

6 more days and I get to spend a 3 day wknd fishing Burntside!

Great Outdoors, was wondering if by chance you are attending the Bash this year. My father inlaw, Don Sandstrom, say's he knows you well. If not, I will make sure to stop by either this winter or summer for certain to introduce myself. My son and I will be at the Bash. Hope to see you there. BC

Big Country,

Donny stops in the store quite often in the summer, haven't seen him since, maybe late September?????? How's he doing?

I'll be at the store the day of the Bash. Will try to shut down by 1 or 2, then run home, grab the snowmobile, then zoom over to Bash HQ for some PR work and a few beers.

Very cool. Hope to share a few with you. Don's doing great. He ocassionally goes to the cabin in the winter. My son, buddy from the cities, and myself will be staying at his place on Clear Lake for the Bash weekend. I helped him move some stuff the other day and mentioned you on this site. He said hello. Hopefully we will see you there. I will ask Mr. Foss to point you out to me. I have visited your place in the summer, so I might recognize you anyway. See ya at the Bash. BC

      I recently purchased a humminbird 688ci hd ice locator and it has GPS and the option for lake master chip. I'm going to drive to Cabela's to buy a chip  and was wondering the difference between the Lake Master Minnesota and the Minnesota Plus. Anyone have any experience with these and are they worth the money. Thanks.

      I haven’t checked backwaters since last weekend, but I checked the small lake this morning and it has just under 2 inches of ice.  McNally’s has been hit pretty hard for the last 2 weeks.

      Good hearing from you, always enjoyed reading of you & Doc's adventures.

      You start posting where the crappies are on the lake now.  We'll start talking!

      Even when the lake trail is marked the oak narrows are sketchey and I avoid it when I can. There can be 24" here and 1/4" there. That being said... There is ice but that's the worst spot on the lake

      What a difference a few years makes on the volume of posts on this site.  The early 2000’s was filled with numerous posts during the Crappie Boom by colorful characters like Kelly P, Jiggle Stick, the Gamblers and so many others.  Clamping, lead suits, IBOTS, Crappie Highway, and so many other memories.  Some of those memory makers are no longer with us R.I.P.  I don’t come on this site that often anymore but still enjoy Kelly’s wisdom and knowledge concerning the lake and topics related to it.  I try to keep up on happenings through the URL Association newsletter but I miss the old days.  I must be getting old.
