      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 .

if you are talking minnewashta, the pike bite is always good in the morning till about 1pm along the weedlines with big shiners and tipups.

the slush death trapdoor ice is probally locked up by now, i was out there 3 weeks ago or so and it was freaky nuts ice!

im not sure. I have always wanted to spear it, but never had time to get out there even though its right next to my house. I have talked to alot of people about it, and they say out in front of the landing, or way on the south end of the lake.

you should be able to drive out by now i would think.

I went out there and cut some holes to check the water clarity, and it was about 15 inches.

Minnewaska is in Glenwood I think. Minnewashta access is a state park access and as mentioned before, if you don't park on the ice, you'll need a day pass. I haven't been there this year, but normally there's a road from the access that goes north for a bit, then turns thru the narrows to the west. You'll see where everybody is fishing then. I wouldn't walk it - maybe lazy. I would stay on the roads...there are bad spots out there past where you'll see everybody fishing.

lots of luck

The park is a REGIONAL park and is part of the Carver County park district, not a state park.

I've fished out there a few times. This season. Its day to day. Some guys get a few others say forget it and run to 'tonka. If your out there this weekend, just look for the ice house with a bunch drunks hangin around it. They seem to do pretty well.

cause they put their 22' trailer house shack out there "on" the spot and fish all the time, i think they are locals, and hang out there all time.

wish i was in their crew, looks like fun!

i have been staying away because that ice in the bay is [PoorWordUsage] until late in the year.

      First ice fishing trip today out of morson ontario .  Fishing  was a little slow got a few walleyes and a couple of crappies . Lost what little  snow we had today made the ice really  slippery. Found 9 to 11 inches of ice.

      Dang Curt, did you take my suggestion on a drone?  Great report.

      Well, I have to pay for registration on my boat trailer to run it on the road, and the boat to run it on the lake, why shouldn't wheel houses?  I guess I don't feel bad for the wheel house guys.

      No not yesterday. 2 weeks ago when we had that first cold spell I went out on Baxter, Blue and Long and checked the ice. They were locked up but only had 1-2" inches so didn't venture out too far. Baxter probably was walkable but had open water on the back end so figured I stay off. Last Sunday I went and checked them out after that warm rainy week we had and they had open water, so yesterday I skipped checking them and went farther north. But I did notice most lakes were locked up on the drive up there. Cant wait for the local lakes to get some decent ice!

      Wondering if big sandy is clear enough to spear fish when the ice comes on? Never done it before and would like to give it a try
    • monstermoose78
      Bryan did you check any lakes around me?
    • Bryan P
      Had to scratch the ice fishing itch, so I drove up north to the Mille Lacs lake area and found a smaller lake with 4-5" of ice. Punch a few holes and found some crappies and sunnies. Nothing big but was fun time and a great way to start my ice seaso n! Bring on the ice!  Check out the video: https://youtu.be/BTTv_G07PB8
