      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 .

Fishermans Wharf & Big point for the Weekend

Recommended Posts

Fishing Trip

He began his day with an 8lb walleye on the first tip-up and a 7lb on the second. On the third bite he had just caught his first ever walleye over 11 pounds when his cell phone rang.

It was a doctor notifying him that his wife had just been in a terrible accident and was in critical condition and in the ICU.

The man told the doctor to inform his wife where he was and that he'd be there as soon as possible. As he hung up he realized he was leaving what was shaping up to be his best day ever on the water. He decided to set the tip-ups a couple of more times before heading to the hospital. He ended up fishing the rest of the morning, finishing his trip with a stringer like he'd never seen, with 3 walley over 10 pounds.

He was jubilant........then he remembered his wife.

Feeling guilty he dashed to the hospital. He saw the doctor in the corridor and asked about his wife's condition.

The doctor glared at him and shouted, "You went ahead and finished your fishing trip didn't you?! I hope you're proud of yourself! While you were out for the past four hours enjoying yourself on the pond your wife has been languishing in the ICU!! It's just as well you went ahead and finished because it will be more than likely the last fishing trip you ever take! For the rest of her life she will require round the clock care. And you'll be her care giver forever!"

The man was feeling so guilty he broke down and sobbed.

The doctor then chuckled and said........"I'm just [PoorWordUsage]' with ya. She's dead. What'd you catch?"

Has anybody been out of the Wharf latley or out to big point???

Were going out for the weekend, So im sure we'll be at Fishermans in the evevings closing the place up and getting a bite. Anyone up for some beer pong or 6-5-4.

The weather looks good and we might have a good chance at some fish over the weekend.

One question, how can the man be fishing tip-ups and be casting at this same time? Is this story even true? No more work for me today, to much pondering to do.

I was out there last weekend and caught a limit of eyes. Had 2 really nice ones that went back and also a few perch. Tons of them on the aqua view and TONS of little perch that like to screw with your hook. Good luck out there.

I've caught 2 limits of eye's my only weekend out on Mille this season.Granted they weren't all keepable(pesky slot limits)but it can be done.Look on page 4 under my post "got Walleyes?"Pictures with a report from 11thru13th a week or so ago!c63.

For one the slots not pesky! It was 14-16 for half the summer try that out! For two your limit is four in possession, so the fish that go back in the lake don't count towards your limit. Don't get me wrong I've seen some nice fish pulled out this winter, but not one person I have talked to has come home with their limit of walleyes.

A group of us were out there this past Sunday and Monday. Rented three ice cabins from the Wharf. Great accommodations. Fishing was spotty at best. A couple of jumbos and one small walleye on a tip up was about it. Saw lots of perch on the cam and flasher, but there just appears to be too much natural bait in the water for them right now. Good luck.

I took your post the wrong way.I was being sarcastic about the slot.In my book if you pull it up the hole it counts as at least a fish caught limit.(not to keep)I hope you as well as everyone can catch if not keep a limit of eye's.It's getting easier every year to throw the 21to say 23 inchers back.I wish the perch were biting better but that will come later in the season.Good luck and I will give a updated report after this weekend.c63

Eyehunter, I seriously doubt if anybody is going to tell you if they caught a limit on the pond. Reason being, they probably don't want to answer all of the ensuing questions that would follow. I'm sure there are people up there catching fish!

Good luck, ole

everyone was catching their limit up their this summer. and guess what. I heard about it. and I caught my limit many times this summer. NO ONE is catching many fish this winter. I don't care how good of a fishermen you are. Ive been fishing the lake for 20 years. and trust me no one is catching many fish.

I would have to agree with eyehunter on this.I also have fished this lake many years and when there is this much food in the lake the bite is tough and and the fish are more then well fed for some time.Ive seen this happen befor on the lake where there was big hatch's of perch and the bite was tough all year and not to be the guy to turn people away from this lake but i will say this find another lake to fish this year or just keep seeing fish and not catching them.Good luck and hope you can find them to because i did but only after i moved to another lake where the fish are active. Just my 2 cents. cool.gif

Good Luck, ole

I would say gull would be a good choice or any other lake for that matter Red,Winni,LOTW,or there are many many more choices the list is endless.I went a little north of mille lacs my last trip up fished a lake called farm island i do believe and did really well on both perch & eyes but had to move to get them.On the pond you can move & move drop the cam sure you will see fish but are they going to bite well every time up this year 5 times now fished 3-4 days each time and caught not much to write home about but seen big eye's big perch on cam and thats about what every one else up there is getting.So if your out to see fish and not catch mille lacs is the lake but if your out to catch fish and have a few for a meal i would try any other lake that dont have the food the eye's on the pond have right now. cool.gif Dont get me wrong i will try the pond again a few times this year but i also have many backup plans on other lakes when im up there.

Good luck on the East side Slab-Slayer. Years ago I first went to the East side of the lake. Haven't been back to the West side since... It's completely different than the west. You're likely to walk into a bar and have half of the heads turn to see who walked in. Leave the (612) swagger in the cities, and you'll love the Wharf...and they'll welcome you. Can't give you a fising report, but there's plenty to fish over there, and plenty of roads plowed, up and down the East side of the lake. Have fun...

You probably will have better fishing later rather than fishing a cold front. But you never know. The fishing might be getting better allready as paul sujests in his post. Me, Im going anyways just becouse I like to fish. Heck, go this weekend and go when its nicer too...... What do you have to loose? I'd be willing to bet that you will have a good time regardless of the bite. Then maybe just maybe you might get into them anyways.

      I found exactly the same thing today. It was a steady 5" walking to the fishing spot. 3" of ice on the spot, if that. Cracks everywhere. Water pushing out of holes I had drilled. Not good.

      Is the Frabill a thermal flip over? It sounds like a steal to me. I would go for it if you’re looking for a house that has more room. I have a Frabill 2 man thermal flip over and I really like it.

      I love my frabill !!

      Steve, Thanks for helping me get a deal on my Otter. I was able to pick it up at Marine General on Monday. Can't believe all of the ice stakes that came with it. Bought one of the Eskimo drill adapters to install them.

      Just out on 1st Lake after work 5” solid clear ice out to 17’ of water 
    • Blackhawkxp
      Any new updates on the ice thickness.  Looking to get out on walk-able ice this weekend.  Seems like the darn winds blows 45 mph every day lately.
    • nofishfisherman
      Thanks for the reply, I'll check them out.
    • Reel_Magic
      I went out on Horseshoe on Sunday and where the ice remained from the first freeze it is a solid 6 in.  Where it recently froze over last week its was 3 inches at best.  Now that we have snow cover it will be hard to find that line.  I was out with the wheeler on sunday but stayed on the "old" ice that I knew was "safe".  I wouldn't use a wheeler from the access or go exploring quite yet.  Plan on heading back out Thursday and will try and give an update
    • Rancid Crabtree
      went out last night. 2.5-3" of solid clear ice. Single digits last night and still pretty cold today...wouldn't be surprised to find another inch when i head out this evening.  Forecast temps have been lowered a few degrees so we shouldnt be losing any ice through the week/weekend. Hopefully making a bit more each night. Breaking out the popup this weekend!

      So there's a guy that wants to trade his Frabill 3 man side door entry flip over ice house for my one man clam Legend thermal Ice House. Thinking I might go for it but was wondering if I should stay away from Frabill for any reason? Wondering if I could get any input and if this is a good deal or not. Thanks in advance.
