      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 .

Daughter's first time on the ice!

Recommended Posts

Was planning to check out my new Cabela's Underwater Camera at Medicine but my 6 year old daughter surprised me with a request to go. Needless to say I changed my course of action and set off on finding anything that would bite.

I thought I would be out fro an hour and head back home but we found more 6 inch perch than you could catch and she even said the one man Clam has to go so we have more room! Mom loved that.

Had to keep a few dinks but it was worth cleaning, she said we should go again!

Great day on the water even if I didn't catch many.

That's awesome. I took my daughter out last year for her first time. She was a little less than 2 years old. We setup some tipups and I was walking over to get a jigging rod when she started yelling. I turned around and a tipup was up. I thought maybe she had done it until I saw the spindle start spinning. We brought in a small northern and released it. She then says to me, "Again, again!"

Hard to manage those expectations. She still loves it though. \:\)

Way to go anyfish. I've got two girls and they love going fishing with me.

I second the comment for Red Rock. I've caught well over 50 sunnies a day there without even moving the shack. They aren't worth writing home about but the kids love it. There are also bass and norts too so you can show your little one how tip-ups work. Also, the water clarity is like 10ft so your camera would work awesome if the fishing is slow.

Thats just awesome. I wish I could have seen her excitement. I took my niece out fishing last week, and that is what it is all about I tell ya. My niece was pumped, just makes my excitement x 10. The sunfish/crappie bite on the vexlar just got her in the zone. Everytime I'm out by myself I think of that and I'm like a little kid in my Eskimo fort.

I have fun getting little kids out ice fishing. The perch, and small sunfish are a persons best friend.

      Sounds good! May an oversized deer with obscenely large antlers find its way to you!

      Well the weather was pretty crappy but the fish were biting...Had to sort through but kept some for dinner. Caught a variety today, eyes,jumbos,crappie and a few smallies... rigging on or next to rocks worked best for us.

      hummm, hadn't heard a thing?

      Good luck. Maybe we will see you Friday. I will let you know how things are looking by us as the weekend goes by.

      I still hope it's double!  I just went over the map with my brother and talked about our options.  We have enough places to go for sure.  It's always fun planning and talking about past hunts. I put out the question to the other two guys about staying in camp vs the house.  We'll see what they decide.  I hauled our "cabin" home from Ely today so we should have plenty of room if they wanna camp.

      Did a few off season projects waiting for Ice. - Underwater camera, Fish Finder, Wheel house mods and the latest converting a 2 cycle Jiffy Lite 90 to an ION battery auger. Got the auger off Craiglist for $10, Drill for $15. Second stage of gear box is a 5 to 1 reduction so got the auger blade to turn at about 250 RPM which I feel is an ideal speed. Gear reduction also doubled the torque of the motor drive. Planning to use the Dewalt 20V ION battery as I already have charger and now converting one of the 1.5 AH batteries to either 9 or 12 AH.  If anyone needs a mid 80's Jiffy Lite 90 motor and clutch PM me. Has great compression, never tried to start it.  Price somewhere between free and a gift. If you did a project this summer, would you care to share them? DJ ION Auger HB.mp4  << Click link for video

      You may want to consider #3 ; Rapala Jiggin Raps, or drop shoting. They both have been putting some nice size suspended slabs topside under some breezy conditions as of late. Fishing sure was downright epic the last week for all species. To bad it looks like "global warmering" is coming to an end for this year, was awesome while it lasted...... Those are some decent perch panman54. LOL!

      Pretty remote and flat back there. I haven't been on that exact shoreline but I bet you can pull a boat up there quite easily.
