      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 .

weekend report

Jim Uran

Fished Saturday and last night in the new house. On saturday we pulled out 25 crappies kept a dozen, my bro in the house next to us caught a few and a nice 22" walleye. Sunday I took the boy out for a couple hours midday and we managed a few snakes and a bass. Last night we caught 13 nice crappies the biggest being 12.5 " and an 18" walleye. I suppose I can mention that I pulled the new to me house out to South Twin Lake.

Thanks for the report leech. Sounds like you had fun in the new used house anyway.

I pulled my new to me last summer house to Sallie. Man there was a ton of people out there. The word is that the eyes are really smacking. Well they sure are. My last three trips produced almost 50 eyes. However I kept only 10 that were borderline keepers at 13-14 inches. Most were in the 8-12 inch range. I hope the others are throwing the little guys back. That lake should really rock in a few years...... Time to find a new lake.

Yes, lots of small eyes in that lake. I'm curious to see how good it will be in a couple years. I'd also like to find those huge slabs, but have not been able to in my ventures. I hope to eventually find them because they are big in Sallie.

I don't target crappies out there but I probably should. I have caught them walleye fishing and they are huge. My biggest to date is 15.5 inches. I caught that big old girl lindy rigging with a shiner minnow. That was fun.

I say that to myself every year, yet every year I catch this fish that are the same size. It's not that I don't catch some nice sized fish out of there, but there are plenty of walleyes in that lake that fill the 10-13" size gap...

looks like the lake has been stocked up the wazoo and is going to be a great fishing lake possibly this opener and next year opener followed by a few good years.

Another surprising thing out there is that That lake is full of huge northerns and muskies and I have not caught one yet. In years past I would catch some on every trip and get bit off on every trip. But not once on 5 trips this year. Odd.....

Paceman, can you shoot ma an email (tstauss@stratacominc.com)? I think I am going to give Sallie a try this coming week on Tuesday or Wednesday. Can you give me some pointers about where to go? Also, is Sallie driveable? I ask because I have been working in Stevens Point, WI for about the last 3 months and this past week, I decided to hit a new body of water (had been hitting a different one before this). Well, I got completely and utterly stuck on this new body of water in slush at the landing. However, I posted about this on a Wisco site and one of the guys said I was extremely lucky to get stuck becuase the ice in that particular area past the landing is never safe. What a blessing it was that I got stuck! In all other areas of the lake I saw trucks everywhere - wouldn't you know it, the one place I wanted to go, the ice is bad. Figures! Anywho, I will always make sure to do my homework now before just blindly driving out. I guess these are the experiences that allow us to call ourselves wise when we mature in years... \:\) I haven't arrived yet... \:\)

Words to live by man.

Unfortunately some of us seem to keep maturing without getting any wiser. crazy.gif

Just kidding, that's just good advise there. There should be more people in this world that are intelligent enough to realize that.

bison, plenty of drivers out on sallie. the crowds have been out there. you can pretty much just follow them around for the 10" walleyes. hitman, don't be jealous, there are plenty of 10'"ers to go around.

Well even through the bad weather the crappies were still hammering. Saturday night my bro's went out and caught about 30 and last night we went out and pulled in 20 or so and kept 9.That was from 5:30 to 6:45. I guarentee they will bite pretty dang good until ice out.

      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.
    • Wanderer
      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!
    • grundy
      don't  give them any ideas!
    • fisherjmb
       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.
    • Jim Almquist
      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.
