      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 .

Where abouts on the lake? There's lots of possibilities. Quite a few houses on the flats just beyond the west bay. You could pop some holes in 15-18 feet and hop around for some sunnies almost anywhere. Walleyes have been active at sunset, but they are very small (fingerlings nearly)....we set up in 20-21 feet on a breakline.

good luck and good fishing.

ghotierman,

I was wondering if there's enough ice out there that they're driving vehicles anywhere yet? Mostly interested in the East & North access areas.

East side south of the landing is not drivable yet. Only 5 inches in spots 2 weeks ago. snow on the east side has been insulating. There was about 8 last weekend where I was fishing.

it is improving but there are slushy spots. Hopefully last weeks warm weather nocked the snow down a bit and this weeks forcast for cold weather should help. But I would not drive on the east side yet this weekend.

I drove out from the NE landing, the one with the steep ramp. I went out to the first break. Drilled several holes along the way. Looked to be about 18" to me, anyway well over a foot. A truck went by me going mostly straight West, a little South, towards the middle to the lake while I was fishing. When I packed up to go I followed his tracks to see how far out he'd gone. I met him coming back way out in the middle I drilled a hole way out there, again it looked to be about 18". Not sure if the South half is only thin or what? I drove across the lake in a meandering route to the North & came off the North access. I didn't drill any more holes so I can't attest to the thickness of all I crossed. There wasn't much snow most of the places I went, but I did encounter more as I got farther North. There was a plowed road going ESE from the North landing, so obviously trucks have been driving there.

I didn't keep anything, small perch & a couple of cigars.

For the past 3 weeks we found some really nice sunnies (9") and crappies (12"-14") in 7 foot of water. Everyone fishing in over 15 foot of water are getting fingerlings for walleye, try 10 foot of water for some nice walleyes. Seen some of the biggest walleyes I've personally seen under the ice, very healthy fish this year.You need to jig with a minnow head though no dead sticking they look at it and leave every time. Havent come home empty handed yet. Good luck theres good potential on this lake.

Wallamander_Slammer and BigBucks

I drove my 1 ton GMC out from the East Access last Saturday around noon and had no problems (good thing I hadn't known the ice was an issue), we fished over by the spear houses on the north east side. There were a lot of fish (bass, northern, crappies and sunfish) coming through in 6 feet of water. It was mostly site fishing and if you were willing to sort you could get some nice sunnies and a few crappies. The bite was sporadic, but being able to watch their mood was interesting...didn't need the Aqua-Vu or the Vexilar until it got dark.

Interesting Wallamander_Slammer,

Lot and Lots of hungry smaller walter this year. In 10 feet of water what, what type of bottom. Sand? Gravel? weeds? Cabbage?

Near big flats or off of steep breaks?

      Wasn't sure, but I found it. looked like  you were cooking something on the grill.

      We were out near Taylors.  Couple boats and us and a pontoon and a pleasure boat cut right between us "sight seeing".  Blows my mind how they cut right between boats that are fairly close to each other fishing an area and cruise right through without a care in the world!  Del, I thought last year you figured out which place I had?

      Fuses are for fire protection. If you're willing to risk a fire in your boat if something goes awry, have at it. Your insurance company would be happy to have a good reason to keep all the premiums you've paid and refuse your claim. Hopefully no one will get injured or die in the fire.

      Are fuses necessary on an on board charger?  Manual chargers do not have them,  is there a reason for them on the on board charges. I was given a system with a bank that may not have been working correctly, possibly blowing the fuse repeatedly.  My system would not be hooked up to an alternator on the engine so I'm wondering if it is fine to use the charging bank without the fuses.  The orange charging light comes on when I hook the wires directly up to a battery. I'm asking because I don't want to go through the bother of wiring this thing in my boat if I can't get it to work right. Also, I would technically only need 2 of the 3 banks to work, but I like the idea of repairing it to its potential.

      Looking to get on some walleye and crappie this week, looks like mayflies were out in full force last night when I was on the lake. First year fishing this lake, where does a guy start?

      Thank you one and all, especially you Tommy. Some very kind words and ditto to you my friend. "Ace" "It's just fishing man"

      Picked up some nice crappie and a couple eater walleyes on Allouez Bay the other day before the rains. Trolled crawlers with one light split shot and others with bottom bouncers. I was surprised at how big the crappie were
