      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 .

Hi all, I am wondering what is the best glo lite. I am using a Lund white lite and my husband is using a Tazer blue lite. What is the best and why?

I think they all work ok, some are better thrn others. But I agree with mnhunter, the cheaper!! They seem to find a way down the hole with me.

Since you are from Chisholm, go to the L & M in Hibbing and at their check-out counters they have a nine LED flashlight for under $2 that works awesome. Runs on three AAA batteries and since it is LED it runs for a long time. Very bright light and compact.

Thanks for all the info. I will still use the one I have. You could try using one of the strech cords you get form a casino to attach to you glo lite. They work great for us, as you can attatch the to something so if it falls in you can still get it. Thy attatching it to your shirt of jacket.

One of the best lights I've found for charging jigs was at a garage sale an was an old Minolta camera with a strobe flash holy smokesdose that thing light them up, but if you take a direct hit in the eyes from the flash you might as well take a nap cause you wnt be seeing anything for awhile. Boar

I have been using my old Minolta flash for charging glow stuff for several years. But no longer since the Upper Red Lake Triangle decided it wanted it more than me and made it jump out of my hand and into the hole. The next morning I took my camera and saw it comfortably resting on the bottom. No way to retrieve it though. \:\(

I have always attached the glo lite, my forceps, and clipper to a Northland lanyard that I put around by neck. You could use a shoe string or any other material for that matter. Everything is attached so nothing is going down the hole. It works good and is always at my disposal. Good luck, hang on. Bill

I kill 2 birds with one stone and use an led flashlite so my glow charger was free! I don't think I've charged anything glow this year outside of just 1 particular day on the ice, and this would be out of about 30 trips onto the LOTW ice sheet this season so far since Dec 1. That particular day I tried the red glow folks speak so highly of, hmmmmmm....I caught 1 Walleye right away, fished with it for another 1/2 hour without a nibble then 2 back to back rather large Burbot....Enough with that color for the day and probably for the season! Has been a good color for me on URL years past for them Slabbers though.

This year the Perch/FT gold back AEjr has been 9 outta 10 go to on Jig stick. Deadstick exact same color in a 1/16oz Frostee. Last year I ran Pink and White pretty steady all season. So give me Perch/FT, P&W, and of course straight Golds and I'm usually good to go. I'm thinking maybe the Red Glo that folks like so much is maybe better on the eastside for the deep and sometimes oh so shy basin Saugers maybe? I don't doubt folks with their reports on that color but speaking with ccmonsr a couple weeks back and then SRJ yesterday we kinda pretty much agree on that red glo thing and the 3 of us all fish the pond fairly often.

Quick question. How long are the AEjr's? Compared to the bigger size? I just got some in the mail today, and they are bigger than I expected.(1 5/8 inches) I thought they sent me the wrong size? or are these the jr's? Thanks

      No see-ums were munchin us pretty bad this weekend on a canoe trip too.  Skeeters and flies were not too bad.

      I went out for duck opener near Milaca and it was sweltering HOT.  It was even cloudy/drizzly for a portion of the morning and it was still unbearable.  The DNR needs to move all these major hunting season openers back a week.  Its pretty obvious that fall is getting hotter and hotter.  We got 6 ducks and 2 geese but so it was at least a somewhat decent hunt but that didn't make up for the fact that it was like hunting in Louisiana.

      +1 on the Smooth Moves.  I installed them on my 1860 Ranger last spring and couldn't be happier with the performance in big water.  Lot's of adjustment and they do a great job of soaking up the rough stuff.  They are a little bulky compared to the other options, but I like the fact that they rely on a mechanical adjustment rather than air.  It would be interesting to sample them side by side in the same boat to really see if one is smoother than the other.  A friend of mine has the Wave Pro and he is happy with that also.  I was close to getting the air wave, but I'm happy I went with the Smooth Moves and would buy them again over the other two.  Good luck with your decision.  No matter which way you go, your back will be happy!

      I am still fishing mostly lindys with minnows but getting a few on jig/minnows also. We boated 13 walleyes and 7 jumbo perch this morning. Largest walleye was 21" . Most came out of 24' to 38' depths, close to rocks. Cliff

      Fished Saturday morning and trolled my way a half dozen eyes including a fat 26” plus two giant smallmouth.  Went back out Saturday evening put the trolling rods down and went Jig rappin.  Caught another 6-7 fish including another nice 26+ that popped off as I fumbled to grab the net as it wallowed around next to the boat. Tricky bite for me.  Still managed my limit of nice 16” fish.  Fishing mainly rock transitions and rock structure in 16-22’ fow.   I will be back in two weeks for my final hurrah before heading west to the mountains.

      I was going to go to my dads pond but my sister texted her friend is there so don’t come. Yep last time that will happen. There is one mad monstermoose! So I stayed home.

      One goose and one woodie so far today.  And will probably be our total count.  Saw plenty of birds but in a new spot we didn't have dialed in until the end of the morning flights.
