      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 .

Going to the game tonight. Can't wait-should be a good one. Fedoruk- Better bring your A-game with the fists tonight. I think we are going to see a brawl or two with the cheap-shots on Vancouver, i.e. Cooke, Kesler, etc. I think they will try to take some runs on our skill guys P.M.B., Gaborik,etc. Where is Boogard? Is he ever coming back? With the physical-playoff-type atmosphere we will see from here on out, especially against the "Nucks and Flames, we need Fedoruk and any others willing to be on the prowl from now on until and into the playoffs. Wild- lets finish 'em off in regulation for a change, eh?

Probably the most boring game I have ever seen. 4 shots on net halfway through the second? Come on guys. You should have been up for this one. They weren't. Please put Skoula in the press box for a few games! He is god-awful. I think Jacques likes his size, so he puts him out there- even on the PP! But he doesnt use his size-does not play physical at all. Johnsson plays the body more, and that is scary. Opposing Matt Cookes, Alex Burrows of the world have no fear going in the corners or along the boards to dig out the puck when Skoula is around. They know they won't get hit. PLEASE SIT HIM!

the worst thing is Jonsson and Skoula play together!! I wish they would send Bellanger or Foy down and play Nummelin at wing. we also need boogard back tha Canucks and after last nite the Hawks pummeled us too many guys (not Fedoruk or Voros) afraid to play tough.

I don't have a problem w/Johnsson- other than Burns and Schultz,at least Johnsson will play the physical game when necessary. Skoula would rather stay at the top of the circle than go into a corner and actually pop someone. Ridiculous.

Did you see Skoula last nite after byfuglen ran over Foy? Skoula had to go into the corner in our D zone with him he was about 5 feet ahead of Byfuglen and moved aside so he could let him get to the puck first! ridiculous for a pro player.

Lemaire loves the guy. Why, I have no clue. Dino was more physical at about half the size of Skoula. Ridiculous indeed. He's not goin anywhere, so we have to continue watching him. Especially unsettling when he is out there on the PK. Why?

      2 hours north of town is ready! Went a ways out drilling my way on two different lakes yesterday. 4 inches on one, 5 on the other, as far as I felt like walking. The 4 inch one was all 4, the 5 incher was 8 near shore and I U turned the car on ice when I left! This is going to be a very long 3 day week..

      I've experienced the same thing - V can be tricky through the ice. There's a ton of structure to choose from and you're pretty limited with how much you can move. We've had the most success just staking out a likely spot during primetime. Drill a bunch of holes and wait for the fish to move up. Tip-ups have helped to cover more ground and locate fish. Like Cliff said, bite windows are real short so you've gotta be out there when it's happening!

      Did they ever find the two missing boaters from the incident a couple weeks ago?  Haven't seen anything...

      I agree with gimruis. Do not expect to see the same type of action or type of bite that you can get in the summer on open water! Generally the winter bite is short, ( a couple hours in the morning and a couple hours just as it is getting dark), especially if you are fishing for walleyes. Dark cloudy days can sometimes be the exception. What works one day may not work the next day also. I like to jig with a 1/8 oz. to 1/4 oz. spoon baited with a crappie minnow or just a minnow head on one of my lines. The other line is a plain hook set line with either a fathead minnow, shiner, pike sucker, or a rainbow chub as bait. Type of minnow that works best varies greatly depending upon where you are fishing! I like to set up close to rocks that drop into deeper water most of the time. Cliff

      While I can't offer you any sound advice on your success while ice fishing, I can tell you that very rarely is the consistent success you've had in open water going to be near as good as it is on ice.   And that is mostly because the water is bitter cold and fish are cold-blooded, meaning that their activity is only going to be as much as they need to survive.  Other things working against you are the inability to cover as much water as you could from a boat and not as many bait/lure options, in addition to being limited to a vertical style of fishing.  I'm not saying that you should give up completely, but just keep in mind that a variety of factors comparing one to the other could be why your success isn't sustained.

      I have owned a place on Lake Vermilion(WE) since 2011 and have absolutely enjoyed every visit and season on the lake.  Our knowledge of the lake and fishing patterns have grown tremendously.  However, this experience has not translated success onto the ice.  We catch some fish, but feel like we should be doing better.  Typically we use small gear 1/16th or 32nd jigs with minnows, Spoons with just a minnow head or when we go after panfish we'll use wax worms.  We fish all the same spots and don't catch nearly as big or many fish.  When we do catch most of our fish, it's typically on mud flats and we drill a lot of holes.  Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

      Ice out as far as I could see today, little wind and a cool night tonight. Some wind forecast tomorrow night. It should be fine though. Here is the report   20171119_153600.mp4

      Any ice starting to form again?
