      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 .

Personal Best Walleye and released-photo added

Headed to the pond for the annual boyz weekend. Wasn't expecting all that much action from reading previous reports but that was fine by us. A buddy of a buddy let us use his house. I think it was between 2.5 and 3 mile. 20FOW on a sunken island. Not 5 minutes after drilling holes, a rattle reel slowly started jingling about 5:45pm Friday evening. I set the hook and felt shoulders immediatly. After a few runs got her head through the hole and about lost my drawers. A nice 28 inch walleye- very fat. My biggest by about 10 inches. I'm not an avid waldo angler. She hit on a plane hook and a 6 inch shinner. After a case of beer and a dozen phone calls in which the last conversation the fish managed to reach 30 inches \:\) reality sunk in and didn't land another fish all weekend - well a handful of 4in perch. We did miss 2 nice walleyes on saturday. Again on the biggest shinner we could find. We noticed the abundance of small pirch on the cams as well. Due to the excitement, we didn't get a real good measurement. The tape was verticle on the wall and the fish was bowed out. It was a true 28... probably could have snuck a bit more out of it but regardless I was thrilled.

Sounds like a nice fish DDP. Congratulations.

Four of us spent Saturday night on the south end of Mille Lacs (Brants Houses- The Purple Houses) in 27FOW. Sent my new Cabela's camera down the hole and didn't see too much going on...mostly small perch and minnows. Over the course of the night we caught four Eeel Pout. At about 10PM my brother got a 26" Walleye up the hole...real nice fish. It was a real fatty so we took some photographs and relsead the fish back into the lake.

We didn't catch anything else other that the nice walleye and the four eel pout. Pretty slow for 192-Rig Hours(4guys X 2Lines/Guy X 24Hrs).

I thought the limit was 1 over 28 inches... you are correct, a replica would do me just fine.

      Can't make this one but looking forward to meeting up on the next. I may even try moving around to catch some like eyeguy, instead of enjoying a nice relaxing sit in my chair and talking!!

      My dad fell thru Camp Lake just north of Shakopee last weekend.  Went from 6" to less then 1.5" in an area that typically never has issues.  Lots of abnormal freezing this year, there were still open pockets Sunday afternoon.   Haven't seen it freeze like this in years (at least on our lake.)  Don't go alone on lakes you're not familiar with.  Bring a spud.

      Any info on Mayhew Lake just NE of St. Cloud? Just moved to the area and was looking to get out a small lake.

      Now is the time to talk to kids about the dangers of thin ice. As temperatures continue to dip below freezing, ice is forming on many lakes, ponds and rivers. But conditions vary across the state.  Minnesota Department of Natural Resources conservation officer Hannah Mishler has already responded to multiple ice rescue calls. “Ice, especially snow covered ice, is extremely deceptive. You can’t see dangerous cracks or the thickness of the ice under the snow,” Mishler said. With many children out of school for holiday breaks, they may look toward the newly formed ice for entertainment. “Teach your children that ice is never 100 percent safe,” cautions Mishler. “If your child is near the ice, you should be near your child.” While adults and children are recreating outdoors, they should always take precautions around any body of water during the cold water season. Lisa Dugan, DNR recreation safety outreach coordinator, advises in addition to checking conditions locally and being prepared with an ice safety kit, anyone recreating on ice should be wearing a life jacket. “A life jacket is the one piece of equipment that increases your odds of not drowning from cold water shock, hypothermia or exhaustion should you fall through the ice.” Ice safety guidelines No ice can ever be considered “safe ice,” but following these guidelines can help minimize the risk: Always wear a life jacket on the ice (except when in a vehicle). When a child is near the ice, an adult should be near the child. Caution children to stay off ponds, streams, and other bodies of water. A thin coating of ice on a pond or lake does not mean it is safe. The minimum ice thickness guidelines for new, clear ice are: 4 inches for ice fishing or other activities on foot. 5-7 inches for a snowmobile or all-terrain vehicle. 8-12 inches for a car or small pickup. 12-15 inches for a medium truck. Double these minimums for white or ice covered with heavy snow. For more information, visit mndnr.gov/icesafety and mndnr.gov/boatingsafety. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
