      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've done bald eagle and white bear in the summer the last three years and have poor luck. I just drive a little further north to the chisago area and have much better luck. Check out Frankies bait, they'll point you in the right direction.

What are the ice conditions on Bald Eagle? Are people driving trucks yet?

I haven't been there for a week or two, but the last time I was there it was about 12" by the deep hole.

Ripping- Yes there always crappies in the 30 foot hole. Mostly small though. As for walley try around the edges of the hole in 15 to 20 feet. Haven't heard of anyone catching anyting keepable this year though. Hope this helps.

I went out Sunday evening just before dark. I couldn't tell where other trucks had been driven and got a little concerned. We entered at the boat launch, which is the only entry I know of. Drove out to just east of the island. 20 feet of water, 14-15 inches of ice. Hour and a half and nothing even showed up on the vex. We quit at 6:30.

I fished this lake a week ago, and the ice where we fished was about a foot. I talked to a guy before we went out though and he said their are areas with only 8-9 inches. That was enough information for me to decide to walk.

I also noticed that there is a ridiculously high amount of garbage left on the lake. Too many people leave their trash sitting on the ice, and most of it was already frozen in. That trash eventually ends up in the lake. Get the word out and tell people to clean up when their done.

Thanks

Went to move the shack from one place to another yesterday. We had 12 inches in the first spot and 8 inches when we stopped the truck in the new spot. We drove slowly back to the first spot and set up again. The ice thickness is just too spotty to drive every where. These cold temps should fix that.

YIKES - where was the 'second spot'??? I was out and the problem is you can't tell where others have driven due to the lack of snow.`

The place we had 8 inches was out in the middle north of cigar island and south of the rock bar. There were tracks going over this area but we didn't want to risk it. I fished near this area before christmas and there was about 3 inches compared to 6 inches everywhere else. I think it just froze up later than the rest of the lake.

Okay, I think we've established that it's not too safe to be driving around the lake. That's a given. Hopefully the cold weather this weekend will "firm" things up a bit. Let's hear some fishing reports. I'm particularly curious in the evening bite. I'm heading out tonight so hopefully I'll have all the hotspots to report tomorrow. Anyone got some suggestions on where I could try for some walleyes?

I haven't got one over 8" this year. They were caught in about 12'.
