      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 .

Central Gunflint Trail Report 2-18-08 (photo included)

Recommended Posts

Tullibee

The weather for the day was quite cold along with a stiff wind out of the north, but the sun was shining so all in all not too bad. Hit the lake with a lifelong resident of the Trail (Warsh from FM), albeit only 18 years of residence.

Decided to try a new area of a lake that I have been fishing quite often with pretty good success. This area consisted of a 20 ft saddle that came from the main shoreline and ran about 150 yards to a hump that came up to around 3 ft, with 40 ft not far of each side of the saddle. Surprisingly enough we were able to find the 3 ft spot right away. We set up the shelter right between this rise and shore, threw out a couple tip-ups and started jigging. It didn't take long for a flag to fly, but just a beat up sucker to show for it. Around an hour went by with only baitfish being marked on the vexi another flag. This flag yielded the same result with some line stripped out but no fish. I reset the tip-up and returned back to the shelter to start jigging again. When dropping my slender spoon down it must have swung way off the the side out of the cone of the flasher because I couldn't see it. Brought it up off the bottom a few cranks and no more than three jigs later a fish absolutely crushed the untipped spoon. After a nice battle a 20" clipped finned laker came up the hole.

20" laker

Managed one more smaller laker in out total of about 5 hours of fishing/BSing. Thanks to some extreme downsizing. The day was actually slower that normal but I decided to post a report because I actually had someone to take some photos. Heading out with Warsh tonight to chase some pout.

Just got back from 4 day trip to gunflint. Fished gunlint 2 days and another lake 2 days. Caught 20 + fish ranging from 9" to 4lbs. Most of the fish were caught on the other lake where we only saw 1 other person all day. Also lost 2 bigger fish on this lake. Lots of people on gunflint,some did well but we weren't that some. Didn't realize the trout were so dark in gunflint. This was our first trip to that area and now I know 4 days isn't enough time to fish all the water I wanted to fish so we are already planning to come back and see if we can find a trout or two in those very quiet lakes.

      A boat and trailer are two separate pieces of equipment.  The trailer is titled and the boat isn’t.  You can have one and not the other for any amount of reasons. The wheelhouse is one item and titled, hence the plate.  Shelter tags primary purpose (besides raising money) is to officially verify who is responsible for it.  You can do that with a plate number. Is what it is.  But I’ve just been having more difficulties considering the license fees as just another drop in the bucket.  If ALL the money was used for managing wildlife and habitat I’d have an easier time with it.

      We caught em between 17' and 27' off a shoreline point. Definitely had more action in our shallower holes though.

      Got out today on Niles Bay. We had 4.5" to 6" of good clear ice. Only one walleye between the two of us but the tullibee and whitefish were on a tear. Even got a nice bonus pike! Hoping to dial in the walleyes over the next couple days.

      First ice fishing trip today out of morson ontario .  Fishing  was a little slow got a few walleyes and a couple of crappies . Lost what little  snow we had today made the ice really  slippery. Found 9 to 11 inches of ice.

      Well, I have to pay for registration on my boat trailer to run it on the road, and the boat to run it on the lake, why shouldn't wheel houses?  I guess I don't feel bad for the wheel house guys.

      No not yesterday. 2 weeks ago when we had that first cold spell I went out on Baxter, Blue and Long and checked the ice. They were locked up but only had 1-2" inches so didn't venture out too far. Baxter probably was walkable but had open water on the back end so figured I stay off. Last Sunday I went and checked them out after that warm rainy week we had and they had open water, so yesterday I skipped checking them and went farther north. But I did notice most lakes were locked up on the drive up there. Cant wait for the local lakes to get some decent ice!

      Wondering if big sandy is clear enough to spear fish when the ice comes on? Never done it before and would like to give it a try
