      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 can ramble on about Upper Red Lake and the potential it has as a world class fishery or I can show you pictures from the last week...ya know when the bite was dead. ;\)

This is Andrew other wise known as MR! Andrew. This young man was not handed a rod with a fish on the other end this guy fished hard for his catch and got what he deserved. Not only did he get some great Catch Photo and Release shots he had his fill of fish also.

This guy doesn't mess with little fish. cool.gif

The next couple of pics is a group of guys that even though all sorts of shenanigans went on in the shack they still payed attention to the conditions and their lines, they also had a great trip.

Nice batch of Crappies

40"+ pike ( I think it was 42" or 43", can't remember but it was big either way)

Nice thing about working on the lake is if you want fish for dinner just pull over with the auger and pick a few up on the way home.

Yes you will have a great time with Jonny P.!! When it comes to Red Lake, Jonny P. Kelly and Patsy will put you on fish. The Houses are clean and ready to fish, toilet duty is done every morning to keep the patrons happy, chairs, tables and stoves for cooking fish out on the lake. They have made every ice fishing trip for us sucessful for the last 4 years to Red Lake.

Mr. Andrew is my son and he did a great job!! It was our first trip to URL. We were there Jan 2nd to 4th and had a great time. The fish were biting light but they were there. We still caught 20 walleyes and the crappie in the picture. We also missed at least 20+ bites. Andrew actually had a better hook up percentage. He kept telling me I was pulling too hard when I tried to set the hook. \:\) Only one fish was caught jigging, but jigging 2-4 feet off the bottom often brought fish in and then they would bite on the set lines. There would be a stretch were they would ony bite on a plain hook and minnow and then there were times they would only bite on a jig and minnow. We always had at least one of each out at a time.

We caught plenty of eater size fish and some too big that were CPR'd. I forgot my fillet knife and called Kelly. Patsy was back an hour or so later with one of theirs to use. That way we were able to eat fish in the sleeper 3 times. Thanks a ton! It was a nice house on a good spot with friendly people. I would definitely use them again!! Only trouble we had was trying to keep up with Patsy when heading out to the house. ;\) She likes to drive fast!!

Fishingpops, I'm sensing a proud father moment. Good for you and Mr Andrew!!!!

Maybe you should listen to him and not set the hook so hard. grin.gif

Kelly, Jon, and Patsy are first class when it comes to getting you on fish.

The best part was the pike. 43 inch. I was there when they caught it. It was a VERY fast team effort to get the hook out, measure it, take two pictures and back into the water she went. They didn't even take the time to congratulate the guy that caught it until it was back into the water. cool.gif

Thanks for trying to snag out that wedding ring, and sorry we dropped that airplane jig of yours down the hole. I think when we come up next year we are going to have to bring our own roof rake pole. Did you try hooking them again? We couldnt really see it at all. Thanks again for a great trip and helping us out with trying to get his ring out.

I had the airplane jig up in a few seconds, no big deal.

As for the ring we dug around with a few "handmade tools" without luck. That ring was not coming back no matter what we tried. I never seen something so hard to retrieve and we have salvaged car keys, cell phones, small tackle boxes, rods, pagers, booze bottles and even a flasher. (yes a flasher will fit down a 10" hole and sink)

How did the misses take it? eek.gif

      Ice out as far as I could see today, little wind and a cool night tonight. Some wind forecast tomorrow night. It should be fine though. Here is the report   20171119_153600.mp4

      Any ice starting to form again?
    • Dirtyfisheyes
      By the look of the forecast, single digit lows at night and no snow. Should it be safe to say that the first of December would be safe for snow machines? Itching to make the trip. Also any recommendations for lodging would be helpful

      Yesterday Finn and I went hunting for ducks and I should have had 4 mallards and pair of woodies.i hit one woodie and it hit the water as Finn went to get it jumped up and flew away. Next weekend I will try again.

      Second week of December is looking good for southern Minnesota, if the current long range forecasts are close to accurate. Maybe even the first week of the month with a little luck.

      I figured I would start up a new thread for us to use for the winter now that things are starting to set up and guys may be starting to creep out on the bays and smaller water.   I did some more poking around on Pike Bay this morning and I don't have anything much new to report. We've got less than an inch of fluffy snow on the ice and things healed up after the warm front this week. I worked my way from shore out into the middle of the bay and ice was relatively uniform between 5.25 and 5.5 inches of nice clear ice. Earlier this week I checked all landings on the Tower end and everything was iced up except for open water way out in Big Bay appearing to mostly be all West of Birch/Ely islands. Not sure if all the recent strong winds from North and South have changed that status though. I'm still sticking with my original guess of December 2 for my first trip off McKinley on 5 inches.   Good luck this winter to all and Be Safe!

      extended forecasts look good up north. We won't have fish-able ice in the metro until at least the 2nd weed in December assuming no dramatic temp changes. The big Expo is Dec1-3 but temps look promising ~1.5hrs north. I wonder if the ability to go fishing might impact the amount of traffic at the show!
