      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 .

RonZych

If anyone is interested(bturk,Davey), there is a tournament on Knife lake this Saturday 2/23. It is being put on by the Crystal Bar&Grill in Mora. It's a scholarship fund tournament in the name of Gregg Jolly who died in the bridge collapse. It's from 12-4:00. Small fee, food, prizes, drawings(included with entry fee), music and much more. I need to rebound from my poor Forest Lake showing. grin.gif

Not exactly crowds. They are confined to a small area( not a good fishing spot). If it's as nice as they say its going to be, then the small tournament will be the least of your concern. Especially if you fish in the the popular areas.

Hey Ron thanks for the information. I may just be able to get up that way. I'll come down the lake to the access from my cabin, red Polaris, I'll be wearing red Strikemaster bibs. Holler at me if I make it. Bill

One other thing are they drilling holes or should we bring the auger? I will probably pull my Clam Voy with me and just set up after the tourney.

Well, I caught two 6" perch during the contest.

There was a 10" min. size to enter fish, no one was able to enter any fish. Good time though for a good cause and what a nice sunny, warm day to be out on the ice.

We caught small crappie and sunnies and perchies. I won a hat and t-shirt. I have never been to a tournament with music that loud! It was kind of fun! I was on the edge closest to the shore. Where were you Dave? Caught fish earlier in the morning elsewhere.

Hey Ron, one of these days we'll meet each other. I was in front of the speakers! More like a party than a fishing contest.

I got a jacket in the drawings. Also had better success before and after the contest elsewhere on the lake, although the crappie size is nothing like it's been in the past. A lot of 6" and 7" in the lake now. Might be a couple years before we see decent size again.

Hey guys sounds like you had fun and some dancing probably as well. Had something come up unexpected on Saturday morning, thought I could pull out in time, but it just didn't work. By the time I would have left St Cloud and gotten up there it would have been past 200pm. Must have been a great day out on the ice though. Bill

      Great news to hear! Hopefully it will make enough tonight and hope it isn't going to get as warm as they say. Fingers crossed!

      Was hoping to come up with a 1/2 ton and a 16ft wheel house Dec. 1st.  Any thoughts if the ice will be think enough to go out of Hillmens?

      Took a drive around Lake Osakis earlier. It appears the cold and calm winds we had last night made a lot of ice. From what I could tell it appeared the lake was locked up except there was a small open area in Manthey's Bay that had a couple trumpeter swans swimming around and another small area in front of Holiday Resort that had some ducks swimming around. The rest was all ice, thin ice. Don't know if it will hold up over the next 5 days. High of 38 tomorrow, 46 and showers on Friday with high winds, 36 Saturday, 44 Sunday and 44 Monday. The lows over night aren't going to dip very low. If it was a few inches thick I wouldn't be to concerned, but as thin as it is, could be bad.

      Not by itself it won't but they raised the price on licenses for everything. Once you add it all up I'll bet you never got that big of a raise at your job. I paid for an ATV license since they first came out and we didn't get squat for it for over 20 years. What a joke, not to mention debacles like Mille Lacs Lake management. AAARRGGHHH!!  I gotta quit now before I pop a vein.
    • JerkinLips
      Thanks for the updates.  Think I will play it safe and wait until Thursday, November 30 to go out from McKinley Park.

      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!
