      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 .

Fished for eyes from 6:00 to 8:30 this morning in 20 fow. Lots of lookers, but not one taker. Moved out to 38 fow and marked fish but they weren't biting good at all and the ones I did catch were the smallest crappies I have ever caught on the river. Moved to 28 fow to try something different. Caught two small mouth, one 16 inches, the other 17, and an 11 inch perch that was shaped like a football. Fished until 2. Fun catchin the bass but a bad day for walleye and crappies. Anyone else have any luck?

UWLeagle-- Fished the high lines from 7:00 til noon, one 9.5" crappie. Plenty of lookers. The bite seems to have cooled down in the last 2 weeks.

Hopefully it picks up again soon. If this keeps up at this pace I might have to try a new lake.

Hey Jake you going to be out Friday morning? I am planning on being out there and set up by 6am. Blue is coming out to join me later in the day. I am wondering where you ran into those drifts that you got stuck in. I haven't been on the river in about three weeks and don't remember any drifts. Just don't want any problems as I am heading across from MN side in the dark. How did you do out there today? See you on Friday.

I am thinkin I should be able to make it out there early Friday morning. I was out there today and the drifts werent bad at all. The one I got stuck in was the only bad one I could see. Just make sure you are in someones tracks and dont try to plow through new ones cuz thats what got me stuck. Did terrible today. Read my new post. Hopefully the fishing will pick up with the nicer weather coming. Shoot me an email with your phone number and I'll give ya a call tomorrow night to make plans if you want. jheuston@hotmail.com

Course we all know fishermen are liars, "Nope, I have never caught a thing on the river. Far as I'm concerned I ciould fish out of my bathtub at home and catch more fish." Yep, and the beat goes on.............:)

Hey tunrevir, I usually do better in the toilet than the tub, it has more structure \:\)

      Sorry dude I tried but this page isn't most active with facebook groups being the biggest way most people share ice thickness in a realtime way.  There's only one way to really know and that's grab a spud bar and start hitting as you walk and drilling holes to see.

      Be looking at these two general areas. Thanks for heads up on south end.

      My son and I fished from 8 - 4 yesterday out of Beacon Harbor.  It was super windy so we couldn't be as mobile.  We caught 6 eyes, all under 17", in about 8' of water and another 10 after we moved out to 11'. Also a few big Perch.  Only 2 fish on dead stick and the rest jigging.  Gold or pink seemed to work the best.  Fun day! Nels

      OK thanks.  I haven’t had an issue yet.  I just got low on powder and needed primers so I decided to try the Blackhorn 209 now.  I remembered reading this post. At the C store there were plenty of Triple 7 and Remington 209 primers in the ML supplies @ 9-10 bucks/100.  The shotgun primers were running running low though and I grabbed the last 100 pack.  They’re only 4 bucks/100.  I figured it would be a cheap experiment if nothing else.

      Not a hundred percent on the age but it's a Frabill Excursion and both are in brand new condition. Not to worried about the weight of it it won't be more than a handful of times of pulling it out before driving my truck out with it. The price difference between the two is what I was looking at.

      Does anyone have any input on the kdrill on a gas auger? I have seen a few people use this setup. Do you need a special adapter to use it?
    • Wanderer
      Are they both the same age?  Equal condition?  Do you hand drag or machine pull?  Weight will matter a lot. You really have to consider how you plan to use the house.  Happiness with the houses performance is the biggest key.   Otherwise it appears to be a trade from a $480 house to a $700 house based on new house prices if I looked at the right Frabil.

      It's not thermal. How's frabill's customer service in case you break a poll or something?
    • going4it
      The only problem I had with my frabill was its weight. It was a tank to pull and tough to put in the bed of the truck.
