      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 .

heck yes!

I'm just seeing what the interest level is like; if no one wants to brave the cold, then I'll stay home. But if a bunch of guys are up for it, I'd like to meet up and cover some ice.

I would love to join you guys but I dont have any days off until the first week of Feb so I guess I am out. \:\(

Dead: To be honest, you probably know more hot spots on lida than I do. I could shoot you some cords. of some spots I fished a lot last winter and you give them I try. I cant promise anything.

Like I have told you in the past, I fish more on the south side of north lida...as I can get on the lake from private property. The places I spent most of my time last year are north east of the island....lots of little humps surround by deeper water. I would set up in about 12-15 fow...lots of weeds on the bottom and lots of perch....I would get the pike and eyes as they came up to feed.

Take care.

cliffy, you ever hook up with whitefish, redhorse, or drum (sheepshead) through the ice. I've been wanting to fish the south end near where you have fished.

Thanks for the other info, I appreciate it!

There are a couple FM'ers from the Crappie forum that are coming up Monday morning to fish Lida as well, I will get contact info for them JP and get it to you. I'll cc you on an email to them. You'll have to emil me so I have your address.

Hey DEAD, where are you guys planning on going on monday. I was out on Clay point again last night and there were plenty of fish but they didn't want to bite. I'd definatly be game for some fishing with people that actually know how to fish... tired of fishing by myself.

Fdog was thinking of hitting up the north end SE of the access. I was kind of hoping to explore the south end a little bit, but am up for anything. I guess it all depends on how cold it is and what the wind is like. If it is nasty out, I'm not planning on moving around a lot.

I'll probably meet up with Fdog after his meeting, likely around noon. The only thing planned so far is that he will call me when he's leaving Fargo. Otherwise things are still wide open. We could meet up at the access if you wanted.

I once caught a sheepshead during the summer months when I was much, much younger. I still have nightmares of that ugly thing!

I do see whitefish swimming around on my AV when fishing those spot I spoke about. I have heard locals call them Tullibe....I am assuming that is the same as a white fish??? I seem to catch one every winter or so on Lida..I have never targeted them....have no idea how to fish them. I catch a handful of them when I do my LOTW fishing trip each Feb/March. At least they look the same...very strong smelling and make a clicking noise....does this sound right?

tulibee and whitefish are two different species. the survey netting say there are tulibee inthe lake, but a co worker of mine who grew up on the lake claim there are whitefish in there too. I'd like to find out if they're in there. whitefish have a mouth more towards the bottom of the head, more like a sucker's. Tulibee mouth's are more liek a trouts. both species of fish are noted as having an "odor", but are delicious smoked.

you usually catch them with a flasher or spoon, with a small jig dropper (about a foot long) tipped with waxie or minnow head.

I believe this is a tulibee I caught on LOW last Feb up near Twin Islands.

right I beleve that that is a tulibee, the whitefish has a more widened out body and like dead said a more pointed, trout like mouth.

--im thinkin of comming out there tomorow, but i wont be able to make it until later, and i got a suitcase style so im not quite as mobile as you guy are, are you thinking about moving around a lot??

A tullibee is a grown up cisco, and they basically live in deeper lakes and cooler (more northern) lakes. The only way you can tell really is by their mouths I was told, and the only real lakes in Minnesota that have whitefish are your Namakan, Kabetogama, Crane, Rainy, LOTW, border BWCA lakes, and I am not totally sure but I believe Vermillion, because whitefish need even more oxygen and cooler waters to thrive than Tullibee. Both tulibee and whitefish are like pizza or a nice juicy steak for northerns, muskie and walleyes. Hope that helps ya guys....in the recent Outdoor News, there is a good article how the whole global warming issue will effect the walleye lakes in minnesota with the warming of the waters and dieing off of tulibee and whitefish in central and southern edge of northern minnesota.

Dead, not for sure I can go tomorrow yet; I will let you know if I can. I may have to go look at some cultured stone for the fireplace, and put some financing in place for the new sled \:D I will be going to pick up Tuesday. I know Kywest was on some pannies, so maybe you two can hook up. I'll try to make it if I can.

      Man you nailed it Kelly. Got out fishing was good. Was about -30*F then went to 14*F . A little after 8AM the Breaker Happened. Here is a pick of a guy to the North of us. We were on 16in of ice. First time I was ever on the ice when the breaker happened........bout crapped my pants.

      F.H., Fish deep and slow with lindys or jigs with minnows. Sometimes smaller minnows will work best at other times large suckers or shiners will get more hits. Cliff

      I'll venture a guess and say 1st weekend of December we'll have a good 4" to walk on.  Then it will continue to freeze to at least 12" before it gets snowed on

      I have the above motor that I use for duck hunting. When the temperature gets into the 30s (like this coming weekend), it can sometimes get stuck in either forward or reverse if it kills at low idle. In the 2nd picture, the throttle is open slightly. The curve part is attached to the shifter. It is in forward. If the motor dies and I close the throttle, the shifter can't be put into neutral (it needs to move up) because the it is blocked by the part above it. I need to take the top off and manually move the throttle closed (to the left) like the 1st picture. I think there is some grease that lubricates the throttle as it rotates under the flywheel. When cold, the grease is thick and sticks. Is there any lubricant I can spray up in the area that the throttle rotates? I'm hesitant to do so because of the electrical components in the area.

      Coming up this weekend with a friend of mine, even though the weather looks terrible. Any advice for how to catch them when mother nature brings the hammer down?  Highs in the mid 30's, lows in the low 20's.   On Friday I had a muskie in the upper 40s hit a 19 1/2" walleye.  As usual she let go at boatside, but it was fun while it lasted.
