      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 .

etc.

I'll be on Sarah Fri 15th and I am planning on camping out on the ice.

I'm pretty sure the boilerguy duo will be there, so anyone else wanting to go after those monster crappies and perch come on over.

It's a couple of weeks away, but we need to ask ourselves, "What do we want?"

Options:

Perch and walleye, maybe a crappie or 2.

Crappies and some scattered walleye.

Snot rockets.

So far it's 3 different lakes for 3 different scenarios. I'll keep yas posted. A lot can change in a week and a half.

We just need to make sure he is not being guided by the Ribbon!!!! I am fishing in a tournament this weekend and will get some info on some other area's as well. Same area, just different lakes. I will get some more info on the lake we hit last weekend too, talked to two guys in a different area on that lake who were blending the mix of eyes and crappies. So, we should have some good information anyways.

Tami, and Jamison, we may turn you two into flat mudhole lovers pretty soon. Tami, I may pull my new perm out there this week if I am gonna be there, might be a good place for you to catch some zzzzzzz's.

Thanks for the offer muc33, but I'm eager to try out camping in the toy trailer. I'm figuring out some modifications to use it as a toy hauler/camper, and want to see if a few of my ideas will work. But if they don't I may be knocking on yours or Erics door. \:o

As far as what lake, you guys know the area so I'm open to what ever you guys figure out.

I'm interested in seeing your set up. My brother in law has a trailer we haul snowmobiles and dirt bikes in, and camp in also. If it's as cool as your wheeler/fishing rig it's gotta be cool.

Just in case, I'll bring my big buddy heater along. I have a spare fold out army cot in the fish house, also.

Well I planned on just having the house out there, I won't be able to stay. Gotta make runs back to the hospital and such, so If I bring it, it will be able to be used by anyone, without my fumes to polute it!

      Man you nailed it Kelly. Got out fishing was good. Was about -30*F then went to 14*F . A little after 8AM the Breaker Happened. Here is a pick of a guy to the North of us. We were on 16in of ice. First time I was ever on the ice when the breaker happened........bout crapped my pants.

      F.H., Fish deep and slow with lindys or jigs with minnows. Sometimes smaller minnows will work best at other times large suckers or shiners will get more hits. Cliff

      I'll venture a guess and say 1st weekend of December we'll have a good 4" to walk on.  Then it will continue to freeze to at least 12" before it gets snowed on

      I have the above motor that I use for duck hunting. When the temperature gets into the 30s (like this coming weekend), it can sometimes get stuck in either forward or reverse if it kills at low idle. In the 2nd picture, the throttle is open slightly. The curve part is attached to the shifter. It is in forward. If the motor dies and I close the throttle, the shifter can't be put into neutral (it needs to move up) because the it is blocked by the part above it. I need to take the top off and manually move the throttle closed (to the left) like the 1st picture. I think there is some grease that lubricates the throttle as it rotates under the flywheel. When cold, the grease is thick and sticks. Is there any lubricant I can spray up in the area that the throttle rotates? I'm hesitant to do so because of the electrical components in the area.

      Coming up this weekend with a friend of mine, even though the weather looks terrible. Any advice for how to catch them when mother nature brings the hammer down?  Highs in the mid 30's, lows in the low 20's.   On Friday I had a muskie in the upper 40s hit a 19 1/2" walleye.  As usual she let go at boatside, but it was fun while it lasted.
