      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 .

Got out early this morning to try for some walleyes. Fished 16 foot of water and was fishing by 6:30. Ended up catchin two eyes, one was small the other was 18 inches. I also lost an even bigger one right in the whole. All the action was between 7:15 and 8:00. Was using a blue and chrome colored jiggin rap. Moved out to 34 foot of water and finally ended up finding some nice crappies. I think I kept 12 all around 10 inches and had two that were over 11. Pretty good day out there for me.

Nice report! I am a little worried though that between you and Blue there won't be any Crappies for a "normal" guy and his son to catch.

Don't worry I let them go most of the time, I'm sure there will be plenty of them left in the river. I started out using a gold jig and the fish wouldn't take it. Switched to one of those small jigging raps in that same blue color I was using yesterday and was getting them on that. They were coming up at hitting them. Couldn't even feel a bite, had my finger on my line and when I couldn't feel the weight of the lure anymore I'd set the hook and they'd be on. Also caught a decent amount of them on a slip bobber with a very small white and pink gemini. Most fish I marked on my vexilar were closer to the bottom then I have seen in the last week. I didn't really mark any fish more than 2 feet off the bottom.

Hey fishin, leave your son out of it, just cause you can't catch fish, don't come crying to me. I saw that jig you left on my rod last week, I wouldn't eat that either unless you paid me... Just kidding buddy, I can take off Friday, so me and your son will show you how it is done.

I still have a half pallet of club crackers I need to go through, I'll be bringing the propane cooker out Friday, lunch is on me.. grin.gif

Hey uwl, thanks for the info, sounds like you worked for them. LB

Hey Blue maybe this time you let the little guy sit in the little green shack like he wanted to last time (where all the fish were caught). Friday sounds like fun, you bring the lunch and I'll bring a few beverages. Oh and by the way this time I will put bait on my hooks. I didn't want to out fish you after you put me on some of your spots but this has gone on long enough!

      so here’s the scoop , as most fishermen know most of the resorts up here started letting wheeler and sleds out on the lake last weekend. That does not mean you can go any where you want as the winds have shifted the ice a couple times and opened up a few cracks . Check with the resort you access and stay in the areas that have been checked out.
      The fishing has been pretty good.
      I have had a few projects that were put off untell I got laid off from the golf course and mother nature again made my projects more challenging. I’m making progress slow and steady and maybe this time I have learned my lesson not to put these off when its 70 and sunny. Chasing breaking 80 at the golf course has got me processed.
      From the looks of it there a good chance we will have all our sleepers on the lake by the 7th of dec.
      My plans are again to go out of Hillmens resort and help Buddy hillmen with his road. He has built a 2 story house that may or may not be on the lake as its huge, I think it can sleep 8 to 10. Its crazy big 14 by 28.

      I appreciate the feedback. We love being out on the ice, so we'll keep plugging away.  Good luck to all this winter and be safe out there!

      I seen in the  paper it will be at Leech lake again this year.

      I was worried about the wire size too. Thanks ProV. I guess I can’t avoid it. 
    • fishingstar
      you don't have any wires on your 7 pin plug that is heavy enough.  
    • PRO-V
      I would run wire straight to the battery with an in line fuse at the battery and use a separate 2 prong connector at the trailer.

      Unfortunately they have not found them yet. Freeze up  with the thin ice has really hampered the search. Too much ice for boats and not enough to travel on. As the ice thickens the searchers are working their way deeper. Such a sad situation.
    • KidMoe
      I’m hoping I can get some advice from you fine folks. I’m looking to install a small electric winch on my snowmobile trailer to load my skid house. I’m wondering if I can power it off the 7 pin connector?  From what I can find, my truck is fused at 10 amp and most of the winches I’m finding pull somewhere around 50 to 60 amps at 1500 lbs or so. I’m wondering what I could do to still run it off the 7 pin. Do I need to add a battery? Maybe a capacitor? i appreciate any thoughts you might have!

      I spotted them also this evening out from McKinley. A few more days yet before I will give it a try! Cliff
