      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 .

Wedding on ice

Recommended Posts

Afternoon everyone--

Check this out. This afternoon my wife and i were coming home from Woodbury. As we were passing Lake Jane, we noticed a slew of vehicles on the ice. As we passed the access i noticed a sign by the access to the lake. I decided to drive down to the lake and see what the sign said. It said: "Wedding vehicles only this way >>>". Go figure, someone must have been having a wedding on the ice.

That's pretty cool, but talk about a potentially tragic headline in the papers!

About 12 years ago I met a young couple on Mille Lacs Lake. They had just gotten married a year before. She was a memeber of that WOMENS FISHING CLUB in Minnesota and they had met one weekend while her club was visiting Mille Lacs for a weekend of fishing and fun.

Anyway they got married a year later and spent their wedding night in his fish house. Next day they flew off to Las Vegas for the rest of the honeymoon.

A little over a year ago, I got married on the ice. Well...It wasn't "technically" the ice because there wasn't enough ice to be safe. We were right on the pier near Fisherman's Inn on Lake Zumro. Friday was nice, sunny and 33. Saturday started nice-20's and the temp's went down and the wind picked up as the day went. Wedding was at 3 and the temp was 11 and 15+mph. So, it sure was a quick ceremony, about 7 minutes. However, the following weekend it was 20 below zero!! We got quite a few calls saying "glad it wasn't this weekend!"

It was a great time and quite the experience!! One thing I know is if anyone wants to do it this way-people will be willing to cut you deals becuase of the uniqueness of it.

This was on the news last night and I did kind of chuckle when they showed one of the guests had a tip-up in a hole next to his chair!!! Imagine when the minister says speak now or forever hold your peace and you yell "FLAG UP"!!!

      Sounds good! May an oversized deer with obscenely large antlers find its way to you!

      Well the weather was pretty crappy but the fish were biting...Had to sort through but kept some for dinner. Caught a variety today, eyes,jumbos,crappie and a few smallies... rigging on or next to rocks worked best for us.

      hummm, hadn't heard a thing?

      Good luck. Maybe we will see you Friday. I will let you know how things are looking by us as the weekend goes by.

      I still hope it's double!  I just went over the map with my brother and talked about our options.  We have enough places to go for sure.  It's always fun planning and talking about past hunts. I put out the question to the other two guys about staying in camp vs the house.  We'll see what they decide.  I hauled our "cabin" home from Ely today so we should have plenty of room if they wanna camp.

      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.
