      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 .

We went as far as the Cranberry Island area on the snowmobile trail last weekend. Ice was fine. In a couple of areas where there was current we found 12" of ice and but most was about 15". There were guys with sleds going all over out there, not to say the ice is safe every where though.

I know they have the snowmobile trail staked out that far now, but there is still some inconsistency in the ice condtions. I enjoy going out on that end and fishing for a day. It is an adventure, but you want to make sure you are going with other people so you can have extra snowmobiles with incase something should happen.

Alot of times I fish the reefs in the Saginaw Bay area and up towards Blueberry island. It is fun and the fishing pressure is nonexistant in the winter time. I usually try to fish in 30-40 feet of water on the edge of the reefs. Be prepared for some real rod benders as well and some nice eaters as well.

Here are some things that I have learned from doing these expeditions. Drill plenty of holes to cover the breaklines. If there are no fish on that particular reef, hump, or breakline...then you are wasting you time fishing it. Alot of times when I am on fish I try to find a little inside turn or a spot that doesn't drop off as fast. Working these areas usually produces more fish than other parts of the reef.

Hope this helps!

HI PIKE,

I'M GUESSING YOUR TALKING ABOUT MAYBE ANZEOS(SPELLING)REEF WHICH IS A HECK OF A JAUNT, AND WITH THOSE HEAVY WINDS YOU MIGHT FIND IT BUPPY. T.L. MENTIONED FISHING 30 TO 40 FEET, WHICH MAY HOLD FISH, IN THE WINTER I TEND TO FISH DEEPER 35 TO 60 FEET ON THE EAST END., IF YOUR IN A PORTABLE, BECAUSE OF THE DEPTH I WOULD USE FIRELINE OR CRYSTAL. SOMETIMES ITS HARD TO CATCH EATER FISH, WHAT A PROBLEM...HUH??? I TOO SUGGEST DRILLING ALOT OF HOLES, LOOKING FOR GOOD BREAKLINES THAT HOLD FISH. IF YOUR PERSISTANT YOU MAY DO WELL.

SINCERELY,

FISHMEISTER

Hey Pike,

Seems we have most everything covered for you on the East end expedition. Make no mistake it is an expedition in the winter months. Be prepared to have a Plan B, and be well aware of potential weather rolling in. Careful around the Brule area also. Although I also like fishing with little pressure for big fish make no mistake you will not have to travel past the brule to experience this if weather does not permit.

Be careful on your expedition!

RD
