      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 .

Pine Island or Zipple

Recommended Posts

We are heading up after lunch today and I'm wondering if anyone has heard if one is better than the other? We are in the SUV this weekend. Personally I would like to take my sled out to the islands tomorrow but the guy I'm with doesn't have one and I don't feel like a 45 minute piggy back ride first thing in the morning.

Was up on Zippel Bay Jan. 29th till Feb. 1st. Cold outside 45 below wind chill made it hard to move around so found it was kind of slower fishing that in past years. Must have been the part of 32 one day and-12 the next. Still caught walleyes and sauger.. out in 31 feet of water...resort does a great job..found set lines caught more bigger fish than jigging.

mnhunter, what road is your house on? I am on Hotspot to the right about 1/2 mile or so about 100 yds north of the road. Have on 8x20 white house with black trim. I will be up there Fri the 8'th. Will be driving either a blue f250 or white f150 depending on how cold it is supposed to get. Lets hook up for a beer if you are around.

Our group split up and they did much better at Zipple Bay. We were all over Adrian's roads and only managed a few. The reefs are still the hot ticket. We caught a few and didn't have to deal with sleds & trailers. Sometimes it's not all about the fishing...

Heading up to LOW for the first time this weekend. We're fishing Sat. only as part of a weekend excursion. We'll probably be sniffing around Pine Island, any suggestions? Where can we find some jumbos? Thanks.

Perchwich,

I have heard of people catching some jumbos mixed in with the sauger and walters. If you want some nice perch I would just go to Waconia. I will also be up at LOW this weekend, if you see a black F-150, stop by for cold PBR.

      Thanks snowfighter. Coming up Dec 9 weekend.my brother took some fish outta little turtle the weekend of Oct 7 th. Sounds like from your end of the lake. Seen pics, some decent pike.

      With 2 trout stamps you can keep double your limit. You heard it here first on the interwebs!  Me and Mr Williams will swing by and say Hi this winter in Ely.   That is, if we can get around your sled!!  Happy Thanksgiving!

      don't  give them any ideas!

       There is probably not going to be much ice to speak of  if the forecast holds true. They are talking 50s on Friday, Sunday and Monday. Any ice we did have will most likely be gone, unfortunately.
    • snowfighter
      Haven't been out looking but things have been froze up for awhile. Heard there was some out on Bowstring last week.

      Wife you dummy  I know the problem first hand !!
    • MJ1657
      It's that time of year. Cone on up and see if you can claim the Nord Lord. Spearing in the Third River Flowage in Winnie. Pizza party Friday night in the lodge potluck in the ice Saturday at noon.   Any questions hollar.

      Saw something interesting on forest lake this morning...lake was completely locked up, yet someone had launched their boat and was trudging through the ice! That’s dedication! Anyone have any ice updates to report?

      2 Trout stamps.  Did I miss something and need to go back and get another?
    • Wanderer
      The 200 foot rule gets me a little but it has to be defined somehow what is occupied and what isn’t.   So for a wheelhouse we get to buy tabs to have on the road and a sticker to have it on the ice and go away for a little while.  Seems pretty close to double taxation since any LE can find out who the owner is from the current plate. Plus the spear shack that I might want to keep up over the weekend.  2 tags plus license. Combination sports license 2 trout stamps Waterfowl stamps Pheasant stamp  Turkey license (stamp now included) Deer license for all seasons   The bucket is getting heavy with all the drops in it.
