      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 .

The Big Question

Recommended Posts

NDSUski

Situation:

11 buddies and I are going up to Dickie’s this weekend. Half of us are avid fisherman and the other half will be buying licenses this weekend. There will be A LOT of alcohol involved. We are bringing a few portables so a few others and myself will be on the move on Saturday. I already have 3 dozen shiners bought and sitting in my garage with an aerator running.

Background:

Same trip last year we caught 6 walleyes with 2 being over 28 inches.

Intangibles:

All I do is produce.

THE QUESTION:

With this years bad bit I am putting the over/under at one walleye. What are you taking?

I will take the under.

Sounds like the same exact trip we had up there 2 weekends ago with a group of the guys from college, granted the weather kept us locked down from being portable on Saturday. We were up Friday morning and the few of us that are avid fisherman moved around 3 mile reef during the day but only caught a few perch. No walleye for us all weekend.

12 guys at Dickies and 16 gallon keg and more, and 2/3 the guys needed to buy licenses up there and were at the bar most of Saturday for the Arctic Blast.

We had a good time though!!!

Here's what was under our 12 man Dickies house.....a bunch of 3" perch.

Dan-

It looks like you are the only one with any faith. Maybe the others didn’t see the last part about me producing. Just to show them up I will have to take your advice about not drinking till 8 or 9, but I know I will have a few beers down by 10 A.M.

I'm thinking this years spread is:

2 Over

+ 4 Pout

Odds are 5/7 to cover.

Odds on Hangovers are not being accepted at this time.

For those of you who took the under you were spot-on. I don’t think the house we used had been moved all season and the people that were there before us tried to make a reef under it with beer cans. We only saw one walleye on camera and that was Saturday when we got out of the house and move around. As for the final totals:

3 eelpout (which does include my league leading 3rd year in a row)

Estimated 278 perch (3-5 inches) many were following a very precise two ice scoop on the bottom of the lake pattern also under the house

10 perch (8-10 inch range) Key: get away from house

1 burnt hat and then head on uncovered mantel. We kept telling him that it might grow back and it looks sweet.

27 hang-overs (yes some people had 3)

1 trip to the hospital (see burnt head)

465 dollars in fines handed out by local law enforcement

3 college educations “donated” to the “dancers” in Bock

0 Beer cans left on the bottom of the lake or on top of the lake from our party

And yes one heck of a good time

Sounds like you guys had a good time and glad to hear you didn't contribute further to the beer can reef...the donations are fairly self explanatory but I'll bet there are a couple of great stories between the burnt head and the $465...care to elaborate??

Yeah, I am curious to the $465.00 too. I am thinking it wasn't due to an illegal fish!

      Looking for some folks in the area. Have you guys ever fished Borden lake near Garrison? I fished Maple lake last week with a lot of small crappie caught.  I let them all go, biggest was 9". Fished few lakes in that area with no luck. Even went to my little honey home with little succes Looking take the GF out tomorrow morning.  Any ideas? Seen someone posted about crappie in Pearl. 
    • HoleHoppingGills
      I was out last Sunday and there was solid 3.5 black ice. It's been s week now so guessing around 6 inches in northeast bay.  All crappie I caught were small besides on 9 incher I let go. 
    • MinDak Hunter
      Pearl Lake has been lights out for crappies in that 10+ inch range this year, finally,  find 13-16 fow and then drill holes until you see suspended fish. When you find them I like a 1/10oz. Swedish pimple (silver/glow) with 2 waxies, keep it above the fish and they’ll come up for it.

      I heard reports Friday of 3-5 inches out of Bayport.

      I'm on vacation until January 2nd if anyone wants to meet up and go fishing let me know I've got all my own gear 95% of the time I fish alone. Willing to drive anywhere or help with gas or what ever. Going to try a local lake in the morning for some eyes and panfish unless someone has any other suggestions. Mostly a CPR guy but it's also nice to occasionally bring some home for the family.

      Still pheasant hunting and still seeing lots of birds!  Went out an afternoon this past week and saw about 75 in 2.5 hours.  Went home with my 3 roosters.  Everything is froze good now so its easy walking and there's fresh snow.

      Welcome to FM, Some lakes near you that are good and have some quality  are Ann,Knife and Fish to the East and the Briggs chain to the West.  Look for green vegetation or mud basin bug hatches for action. 
    • monstermoose78
      Sure helps to find them when you have some of the top panfish anglers around helping
    • IceHawk
      Good fish Rick way to find some quality fish in a highly pressured area. Takes skill to be able to accomplish that. Maybe run into you one of these days out there
