      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 .

From what I"ve heard from a couple of my buddies sarah has been pretty slow....or maybe they just dont know how to fish..lol. I heard that the only fish caught today for thier derby was an 8" walleye. On the other hand, ya dont know til ya try. I am thinking of just keeping my house on shetek.

I'm thinkin we should hit the north side of Shetek. Some neighbors of mine were at the derby on Sarah over the weekend and didn't catch anything. However, we all know fishing Sarah you have to be mobile and with the weather they just drilled and hunkered down.

Sarah will give you nice perch, walleye, and crappies. Shetek will do the same. However, I'm thinking the bite on Sheteks north side is going better than Sarah's is right now.

I'm not stubborn, just ask my wife. grin.gif I'll go where the group decides. I vote for Shetek.

just pulled Shetek up on the lake master maps. The north end is big. Is there a boat landing up there? if so from the landing which way?

I don't know if I'd call it a landing, it's where everyone gets on the lake, tho.

Look at the absolute most north end, that's where we drive on. From there it's kinda nice cuz you can fish Teepeota point, the inlet, or no mans land and still get fish.

I can give you directions, but it's real hard to write them down, just ask CCFC. grin.gif Drop me an e-mail, I'll give you my phone # and I can give you a call.

Take the 2nd left after the 4th right, then head north for 1/2 mile.... when you get there, go south another 1/4 mile, whip a louey, go back 32 feet, turn left and then head east till you get to that one sign, yep that is it, the sign that says you are here! You know here, the place from where you started without knowing where it was. Yeah, that's right, just down the road from Whatyamajigger lane, and kiddie korner from Ummm Boulevard, and close to there.

Do you know where the Lutheran church is.....? Ok, yeah, it's nowhere near that.

hehehehehehe. He will get you there.

Main body of the north end. The long arm you are looking at is what we call "The Inlet."

If you try to call, I can't have my cell phone on at work. You can reach me at home, or on my cell anytime after 6-ish or so. Or you can go the old fashioned route and shoot me an e-mail.

I'll be there Friday after work and plan on spending all day Saturday out there. I doubt I'll have my shack out there, just my porty. This is all pending on the Mrs, however. If she comes I'll prolly be bringing the shack.

Friday is out the question and i'll be lucky to not be working Saturday the way things have been going around here. Another Saturday on Shetek could possibly be on my to do list but I haven't been to Iowa for 8 days and counting I am starting to have withdrawals I would hate to lose my touch.

BG - thanks for the directions and info! I love dealing with engineers, they're accurate and sooo detailed. grin.gif

My fishing buddy is an engineer, he's great at putting us on fish and meticulous doing it, - a virtue and a vise \:\/

I'll see ya when you get there. I'll also have a 2way radio, on channel 7. I'll be in the area you told me about, unless the fish aren't there \:\/ and then I'll be off looking for the fishies grin.gif

Anyone else - if you have a radio bring that - channel 7. Look for a wheeler with a Fish Trap Pro, and me in a tie died sweatshirt, can't miss me. I should be on the lake fri by 9:30 am

      7" of good clear ice in the couple holes I drilled in Pike Bay this morning.   
    • cookie129
      not sure why its not showing I'm posting? Anyway walking out on the south shore gets you in deeper water quicker. Yes they do bite on red lake during the dark. I hardly ever go on the lake early ice unless Buddy Hillmen needs my help. Once I drive on the lake with blue thunder I will be on her just about everyday un  tell mid march if mother nature cooperates.

      Can anyone recommend a place nearby the Metro Area where a person can take their air rifle to sight in the scope since you cannot shoot them in city limits.  Plus, probably not smart to just pull up to a random field to sight in, either.  Thanks!!
    • bbfenatic
      Went out early Sunday on smaller lake before the Vikes game...5" of good ice and it was growling so making more before it warmed up. Caught a bunch...pic of the dozen crappies we kept...but it was fast and furious from 7-9am
    • ozzie
      Happy thanksgiving Cookie to you and your family!!!  Glad to see you made it through the summer and are getting ready for the long winter on such a Grand Lake!
    • cookie129
      well we finally got our home computer back so it sure is nice to be able to type again instead of using the phone.
      The wind were wicked Monday night but by the looks of it this side of the lake held together so that's real good news.
      Lonnie and his buddy braved the winds yesterday and headed out ,they managed to get 7 of there 8 but it was a tougher bite then last time they were here on Saturday.
      This weekend is going to be crazy up here as I have had quite a few inquirers about lodging on shore. Buddy Hillmen may have something but he is tough to get a hold of as he is busy building that mammoth house.
      We ran into a hiccup on blue thunder and have a part we can not get off to replace. I'm hoping Tom can come over and button it up. as Devon worked his butt off to get er done. You could see the disappointment in his eyes, Blue thunder is my work horse and I'm feeling the pressure of getting her up and running..
      Our new used lake truck may show up sunday if all goes well. Its name is Cheyanne "I think that's spelled right. It blew a radiator in fargo and is arriving on a trailer .
      Old Minnesota is the only house that I have not detailed as I also had some major work on her that was ignored while I was trying to break 80 at the golf course this summer. Every one have a great thanksgiving and if your coming up here make sure you check in the resort your going out of as they have been on the ice everyday
    • Surface Tension
      I've got 6- 8" on my home lake. I've heard reports of 3" on Eastern side of Fish Lake from High Banks Resort-Blue Max.    
    • ZachD
      Idiots   I am heading up Friday I will be walking out don't have to go far for good fishing this early
    • ZachD
      If I remember right you used to have to get a license a while ago before they changed it to the if you occupied it rule. I don't think 14.33 a year is going to break anyones bank. Hopefully they use the extra money for stocking purposes
    • Fishing Frenzy
      Yeah looks like the 2nd weekend in December if we're lucky before you can ice fish this area. Going to be another late year on the ice.
