      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 .

I know this is very late notice, but Perch and I are going to be out fishing on Lida tomorrow (Friday) morning and early afternoon...if anyone is also going out, look us up. We will be fishing over on North Lida on the North side. This is something new for me as I normally only fish the south side. Anyways, we will be in my red Ford Screw and fishing out of a FT Yukon. If your out, swing on over and say hello.

I was out there tonight, it's getting a tad slow. My only advise is to move further west into the basin and get in 30+ fow. If you see my house, white one on the north end of the group with a green astroturf place mat in front of the door and hotspot outdoors sticker, head about 30-50 yds West and a hair South. I'd come join you but I have to take my 5 yr old daughter to the Sweetheart Dance in DL, it'll be 3 years in a row. Someone please help me grin.gif

Ky, I'll be out Saturday if the blizzard isn't too bad, if you plan on going out stop over and I'll direct you to the couple other spots I got some crappies at.

and......I think I am going to try Bass lake in Maplewood State Park on Sat. morning for some trout.....if anyone wants to join me. I guess it depends on the weather...but that lake/area should be pretty well protected from the wind.

Fishing Report-Friday

Well, things started out sorta slow for Perch_destroyer and I. We marked a few perch and the occasional school of sunnies would pass on by. Perch's IBS did cause some good laughter. (Perch: thanks for the mental images that 4 Tylenol pm and beer can not erase!)

Things picked up after DeadHead and Fisherdog were kind enough to give us a call and we joined them on the west side of the lake. Once I got over my stubbornness and listened to Deadhead and Fisherdog, I was able to end my day with a very nice flurry of action. Overall, another nice day on the ice. Thanks to Deadhead and Fisherdog for the generosity.

Also, to Kywest, it was very nice to meet you....although you shoot a Bowtech, you are alright in my book.

Take care

Cliffy

That one made me laugh when I heard it, especially Cliffy's monotone rebuttle. Cliffy, I'm glad we could get you on some crappies, that spot will be very good come late ice. We need to find some Virgin fish out there, it seems as if less than 10% of the lake has been touched.

Again, nice meeting all you again. Clffy, that poor 5 gallon pail, I may have to retire it this season. That was the first time fishing that lake (not from shore). Besides the little perch stealing our bait, it was great. Sorry I couldnt stay longer, I heard they started soon after. FYI all, cliffy and I didnt fish any hot spots, believe me, if we had, we'd have some trophy photos posted. We did find an alright spot.

Interesting to see a nice Pike on camera that had a Lure hooked to his lip and a nice leader or tip up line draggin behind him. If anybody catches that thing, take a photo for me. Cliffy good luck on Saturday, let me know how you do. I gotta go back to work 2morrow night. Later, the Perch

So... I fished the same old spot I normally do. The so-called "Hot spot," started off real slow. Got a little sunny then a little crappie then absolutely nothing. Sat for about an hour and right around 7 the mother of all schools of crappies came in. I ended up landing around a dozen crappies all of which were 14-15 inches. I have caught a lot of fish out there on that spot but never that many that were that big. It was a great night. I was even able to catch a real nice walleye. Wasn't huge but a great eater.

Cliffy, great to meet ya. Hopefully we can get some fishing done and you can show me how to get some eyes out there through the ice. Its funny, I was thinking the same thing about you shooting a Mathews....

Ah, taxes can wait, there are fish to catch... Yeah it turned out to be a good night. I am out there all the time so if you ever venture out there, shoot me an email or something. I may try and get out there tomorrow depending on the weather. They called off the blizzard or whatever for here but it may still not be very nice... Who knows.

Deadhead and Fisherdog were having pretty good luck.....perch and I were a little slower.....but I was able to redeem myself towards the end. In my defense, It was hard to focus under constant verbal and emotional abuse from some unnamed individuals! \:\) ..and even a roaming husky named "Jaxon" disrespected me by weeing on my truck. \:o

      Sorry to hear. Being the guide-dad you want everyone to have fun. No fish on worms? Had to be the Eclipse!
    • JBMasterAngler
      Trip didn't go as planned. I had been asking some questions on here to get some info/ideas for the trip. Greatly appreciated all the stuff you guys shared with me. Unfortunately most of it wasn't in the plans  Camped at fall lake, as this was the first time my wife tagged along in a few years, and I thought his would be the most family friendly. After getting setup on Sunday, I launched the boat and goofed around for a bit, but didn't catch anything. My daughter was using worms, and she didn't even get a nibble. Is there not much for bass in fall?   Monday we had to spend some unexpected time in town, making certain purchases. Made it to snowbank late. Trolled for lakers, but only marked ciscoes. Once we started fishing for bass, we caught a few, but then the rain fell. Had it just been me and the 2 older kids, we could have fished through it. But with my wife and the youngest, it wasn't going to happen!   Pretty much the same thing happened on Tuesday. Went to burntside, but the lake was too windy. Went back to town, let the kids play at the park, then had lunch at the boathouse (I highly recommend the motorboat burger). Then we decided to keep it close and simple, and went to miner's pit. Weather got the best of us again. At least this time, my wife caught a few fish. No trout though.   Sometimes there's more to camping trips than good fishing though. We still had lots of fun, and I'm already making some notes for my next Ely trip, which I don't even know when will happen.

      Tommy, can tell by your posts and photos that your dogs are very special to you and Bonnie.  I shed a tear or two while reading this.  I got a kick out of you telling me here after I saw you driving through Cloquet a couple years ago.  You saw my dog riding co-pilot and you mentioned that you also had a dog in the passenger seat (can't remember which one) and Bonnie in the back seat riding with the other dogs.  Good Stuff! Take care, Bill

      I pop in here a few times lately for some humor for myself, it is hard to do. No, very hard to do...but this sight makes me smile sometimes so here ya go...FYI.   Moe Rock passed August 14th  ~  4 days before what would have been his 11th birthday.
      He was our rock in many ways and was one of the smartest retrievers we have ever had in our family in 30 some years.
      If you knew Moe Rock you can understand, remember. He was so strong an fought the cancer just over FOUR MONTHS....
      Pills n tests an more pills an more tests...until well CANCER SUCKS.
      In the end the cancer wins no matter how hard he fought or how hard his TEAM fought with him and for him. Bonnie an I, the special vets an techs at Osceola Animal hospital and the top doc's, students and assistants and at the U of M vet center tried very hard and long to help him in his battle. He never changed, stood tall an strong, bright eyes an devilish smile.
      Truth is we only stayed a couple steps ahead of the cancer that took him that day at 5 PM.
      He was strong right up until he passed with Bonnie an myself holding his paws an making his passing go easy. Bother Polar Bear Boy looking on also.
      Don't make any of this easy saying this, but he was not doing good at 5 am Sunday morning as that cancer stuff just jumped him good this weekend an well,  he lost.
      We never gave in, nor did he. This weekend at the cabin he tried to enjoy himself, DID enjoy it all.  He swam, couple dock jumps, we fished morning runs an sunset, did boat rides, worked on some shore n boat small projects an ate pretty dang well. He was fine until bedtime when we knew an HE knew something was happening.
      Not good. CANCER SUCKS!
      We had a great time, Moe only showing to Bonnie an myself an his Brother Polar Bear Boy he was not feeling to good in the evenings the last week. Very sad. Never forget Moe Rock or his up north name of NoMoeToe given to him by long time guest in my boat from Capser Wyoming the late Mary Cob and his Chisago City area name the Fire Chief gave him of ThreeToeMoe. He was not only special to me but to a host of people in this area an on or around Lake Vermilion for his whole life.
      Good boy, darn good boy. One regret is not everyone that knows of Moe or knows him only online did not get to meet him in person.
      You would have enjoyed him in many ways as we all did.
      Loveable, big nut, sweet, smart, goofy, odd and a total tick that like to start fights with this brothers an then leave them to settle it while he went an ate their food or got best seat on casting deck my big black boat.
      Yup, Moe Rock was a Tick.   Any way....very sad are we, but he fought like tuff darts, a good long fight.
      Never whined a bit, did as was asked an stayed pretty much himself the whole time until that Sunday morning really.
      Not once showing anyone not in family he was sick, real sick. Still loved his truck rides, belly rubs, swimming his pool, wratling with me n Bear, watching TV, Playing on Kendel or computer with Bonnie an just plain being Moe to his brother Bear Boy...big smiles. Fishing, how he love3d fishen...mostly topwater of any kind, but he would go with me anytime, anytime....true fish hound was he, our sweet Moezy.
      I did not tell anyone about Moe rock but Mom Joanne as figured he might kick cancer to the curb an well..........
      Never gave up hope but most times cancer wins in retriever hounds, even our sweet Moe Rock.
      PEACE!
      Very Sad. Now running with his fellow Mallard Island Marauders that crossed over before him, Barney Toonder, Homer J., Bailey, Beckey, Buddy.....plus Jack n Ev the Kats.
      Some good party.....good food, big smiles and all that go with them....all very special. Lov ya Moe......I miss you my boy....rest easy until we meet again.   Keep on rocken!   Tommy
