      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 .

All the resorts fish pretty much the area over Pine Island.

Exactly where their houses are seems to make the difference.

I dont know much about Wheelers Point or where their "area" is.

If you can drive to the house it means it is near the road and

in a busy area if they haul you out in bombers it means they

are off the road in an area they have selected.

You ought to be fine. Most of the outfitters along the strip

there are very good

Just returned home from a week on the ice off wheelers point. Went out on Adrian's road 7.6 miles from Pine Island in 34 FOW. We caught and ate fish every day, and brought home a limit. The small sauger were not a problem, and it was a good mix of Walleye and Sauger. Most of the Sauger were in the 14 -16" range. My wife caught a 31" Walleye on Friday. Just a hair over 11 pounds. Put it back, and will get a blank to mount.

Shiners busted in two, and both pieces on a Gem-N-Eye, or eye dropper worked the best. Glow in the dark pink or chartreuse. Most fish were caught within 6" of the bottom, but watch the fish finder, because about mid morning the fish you see at 10 to 12 feet below the ice are hungry walleye, and were feeding aggressively.

Out as far as we were the bite started at about 8:30 am and ended about 5:30 pm, with the best time between 10:30 and 2:30.

Road conditions are starting to deteriorate, and water is coming through on Adrians road ... the blizzard Saturday and the extreme cold have made the road single lane in some spots. I was glad to have a high lift SUV to get through the wet spots. Some ice build up on the house undercarriage. Just keep moving, don't stop because you lose traction and then you would have a problem. Wigwam would not let people on the ice for their rental houses Saturday because of the white out conditions. Weather forecast for this weekend is warmer.

Be safe out there. You want a contingency plan in case! Hope your wife has a good first outting.
