      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 .

Put in a 12 hour shift on the icce 9 am-9pm. Started out at Tetonka and fished a couple hours. Iced a few nice gills but the bite was slow. I started thinking if I hit some less pressured lakes the fishing would be better.

Packed up and headed to Cedar, fished 20-25 ft and found the crappies stacked on the Marcum. Would catch a few out of each hole then would have to move to some new fish to keep them biting. Lots of fish but they were all 6 inchers.

Headed to Horseshoe to try and tangle with some of the slabs I here so much about. Again i got lots of crappies but all 6 inchers.

Frusterated, I stopped at Roberds on the way home hoping to catch a decent crappie. Fished from 8-9. Again lots of activity on the flasher. My moving finally paid off and I caught the largest crappie of the day. A whopping 9 incher! I think I counted about 38,000 houses out there, simply amazing sight to behold.

In hindsight I should have just stayed on Tetonka and searched out the fish. Lesson learned. Now that im working the rest of the weekend im sure the bite will turn on.

I found a few nice perch on tetonka, but no gills. I drilled a ton of holes, moved often.

There is nothing like placing the big house in a prime spot for the evening run and not getting a bit all night. I swear I am going to sell everything soon. \:\(

Headed out this morning with KMR85 in search for some pannies. Ended up going to madison, and after a while the bite was on. First of there was a ton of houses out there so finding a place away from them was hard to do. Our first choice away from the houses was a bust, after swiss cheesing the ice in 22'-24' of water and not marking a fish it was time for a quick move. We again chose a spot away from the crowds and marked a few fish in 22'-28' adjacent to a steep drop off. We got a small perch and two crappies, we were just about to move when we iced two big crappies. The biggest was all of 13". We decided to stick it out to see how things panned out, and they did. The fish moved in and were stacked on the bottom 8'. There was a lot of sorting to do, but it kept things interesting and fast. All and all a good day on the lake

      10 day forecast doesn't show anything with low temps below 15 degrees.  It might make ice but it wont be making it necessarily fast.

      Thanksgiving would be nice...but first week of December still works!   Rogers on Red is already allowing wheelers and sleds...no side by sides yet.

      A 30-foot-tall white spruce, selected as the state’s official Christmas tree, was cut down today in the General C.C. Andrews State Forest, near Willow River.  The tree will be set up at the governor’s residence, 1006 Summit Ave., St. Paul, around 9 a.m., Monday, Nov. 20. The tree will be lit Monday, Nov. 27. DNR staff and the Conservation Corps of Minnesota cut the tree on the Friday before Thanksgiving each year from one of 59 state forests. However, the search for just the right tree begins months before. DNR foresters keep an eye out for a tall tree that’s nicely shaped and well filled out. It also needs to be in a location where it will not be damaged when dropped and then easily pulled out and loaded onto a trailer. Minnesota’s state forests provide clean air and water, recreational opportunities, wildlife habitat, timber and special forest products. This year, small businesses are making 150,000 wreaths with balsam boughs harvested from state forest lands. The estimated annual sales for Minnesota companies producing holiday wreaths exceed $23 million and Minnesota’s public lands support a large share of this economic activity. Each holiday season, half a million Christmas trees are harvested from private tree farms in Minnesota, contributing about $30 million to the state’s economy. For each tree harvested, one to three trees are planted. Real Christmas trees store carbon during their lifespan. They can be chipped for mulch when the season is over, making them an environmentally friendly choice.
      More information and details on viewing the tree is on the state Christmas tree page. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Looks like Big Bay is still open, so I don't think I'll be ice fishing Thanksgiving Day weekend.  I'm guessing the Big Bay will freeze this Sunday or Tuesday.  Lake should be walkable by December 2 when I plan to go up.

      Why do you think I come here everyday?  It's better then poking your eye with a sharp stick or slitting your wrists!

      I don't see any serious cold snaps in the next 2 weeks so its likely open water will still be in play for those brave enough to try it.

      Now is tough time. I was watching bays ice over a week ago and they are wide open again this week. Could be ice fishing in 10 days, could be ice fishing in a month. Who knows? I have a work trip to North Dakota in 2 weeks and I've been clinging to the hope they might be iced over so I can fish a little afterhours. Probably a longshot. I've already spooled the reels, cleaned and organized the gear, charged the batteries. Trying not to fishing-shop myself into financial woe. Even tried to celebrate open water by wading in neoprene waders and trying to find some sunfish on wetflies. No dice. Ugh.
