      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 .

dodge guy, when was the last time you fished Round? I can give you 8 houses that have more than struggled in the last week.

Had a buddy get three off of Round Saturday evening. He had the Marcum and was jigging about an inch off the bottom. He could see the fish come in and raised his jig about six inches and could get them to hit. The other guys with him caught nothing. They can be had but it's got a lot tougher.

Not sure, can't figure this one out, if it's weather, or what. From 15 below to 35 in 2 days now back to strong winds and snow today.... your guess is as good as mine. I am home with bronchitis right now, gotta love getting sick spending so much time in a hospital! but I have a couple guys out there pretty contstant I will get the low down and let you know.

I can see both the weather and just the flat out fishing pressure having it's effect on Round. Let's face it, it's a fairly amazing fishery, especially for it's location. (southern MN)

It's been getting fished hard, and producing, for well over 2 years now. It's bound to slow down eventually.

Sick is a drag. I was fairly ill last weekend. Between work and shots of the cruddy bug I still managed to get some ice time.

you are absolutley correct. this is the 3rd year of hard pressure she took. not to mention the open water pressure too, you should see that mudhole on opener!!!!

She has been fun, but like you said the fun can end too. who knows?

The sick thing sucks for sure. I though I skated by it when the rest of the family was sick, but NOPE, whammmo, my throat glands feel like they are the same size as my waist!!!!!!!!!! yikes!

My daughter is sick too. My wife's turn today and perhaps mine tomorrow if she doesn't re-direct "the storm". Seems to be a lot of illness floating around...

It's not that I don't want to make the trek but I want to be sure it won't be frustrating for everyone involved.

Heard from a fishing friend that was on East Grahm and caught several small walleyes nothing worth keeping. It was on 01-26-2008 in the evening.

HOLY COW we were on the west side of Lake Shetek the other day and I have never seen better fishing...By the end of the day we had our limit of Crappie and Walleye for two guys. Our biggest crappie was a 15 and our walleye was a 20. I strongly suggest hitting that spot up.

Hi outdoorkid. Welcome to FM!!!

I haven't fished Shetek in a while but I've heard through the grape vine the crappie bite was on.

Were you on the north side of the lake? Seems that's where I've heard of most of the action.

We were like Northwest side in between a little bit. The walleye was better than crappie. Small Glow lures with really small minnows were workin well. We had an absolutly huge walleye come right up to the fish cam

      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.

      I didnt hear how the second day went yet.  The long term average is 8% success up to 10% during the 2 deer era.  so 5.7% isnt bad for day 1.   Cooler weather will hopefully help us second weekenders. I havent seen much for rubs or scrapes here yet, should be starting any day.

      HooDoo Point, Everett Bay public landing, or the Casino are all good landings if you want to fish Big Bay. The Y-Store or  the Food and Fuel in Tower both have good bait. Cliff

      Anything from moccasin point west can be pretty spotty with Verizon. If you're on big bay it's tough to beat

      I just read an article in the paper recently, that pout fest might be relocated to Lake Bemidji in 2018. It never gave a reason why though. Anyone know anything?
