      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 .

FISHING OTTERTAIL THIS WEEKEND

Recommended Posts

stellarfisher

I was up on OT last weekend, fished Sat, Sun, and Mon. Caught perch until your hands fell off, took my girlfreind she didnt have to wait once for longer than 30 seconds to get a bite. Most of them were pretty small did manage about 15 over 10" but none that were 11". Not huge but no too bad for OT. Caught about 10 walleyes too, kept three of them the rest were fairly small. Dont know where to get the big ones. Anyway I am heading up again this weekend to fish all day Sat, and Sun. Anybody else gonna be around maybe we can locate some of those bigger eyes if we work together.

Sadly I haven't made it out on OT yet this year but I'll be up this weekend. I'll be fishing other area lakes most of the weekend but I'll most likely be on OT Sunday late morning/afternoon and possibly Saturday afternoon. I'll be in a black Grand Cherokee with a purple Otter. I'll probably be heading out of the Riviera access but who knows where I'll be fishing. Feel free to stop by and say hi...hopefully we can find some nice eyes!

Well I will be in either a Red Avalanche or a Red Ranger, with a X2. I do fish out of the Rivera access sometimes and if I dont get anything elsewhere maybe I will head that way. Im Adam by the way.

It was a pretty good weekend to end the walleye season on. I ended up getting my limit of Walleyes and my limit of Perch, not all from the same holes though. I drilled over 50 holes on Saturday, so I put in the effort to get the reward. I only had 3 or 4 perch late in the afternoon but I kept on trying til I hit the spot with bigger perch, then I found the Mother Load of 8-10 inchers.

How'd everyone else do?

We fished Sunday in the fog with about the same perch results and a few smallish eyes mixed in...Absolutely hammered nice tullibees for the smoker which was a blast on the light gear...We got three trucks stuck multiple times in the deep crusted snow...Wasted a good part of the midday period...We all got nice sunburns as well...Couldn't ask for a nicer day to end the season.

Didn't fish OT, but had a great time fishing eyes. The fish were aggressive and biting late into the morning with all the fog yesterday. Incredible weather! Afternoon wasted due to getting stuck and trying to get off the lake..

Did I miss much last evening jerky? sleep.gif

I fished Sunday afternoon for a few hours and got one a shade over 20 inches. I later dropped the camera down and saw 3 more swim by but I think they were scared of the camera. I also got stuck in the crusted snow once...it didn't help that I was pulling a trailer. It turned into another perfect day though. We couldn't have asked for much better of a weekend weather wise!

Tough bite this morning. Tried to [jerk-bait] some perch. Found perch, but they were ultra tiny. Fished anywhere from 30 fow up to 6. We'll try to get out again this weekend and try some different spots. Moving around wasn't impossible, but was a task with all of the hard packed snow. Drove over some drifts, but slugged through most of them with a full-sized truck.

Here's hoping warm weather is soon near to burn off some of the snow.

      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.

      Anyone else think the number of people ice fishing in the last 5 years has grown greatly in our area? To me it has and to me it seems alot harder now to find a spot of your own, or spots that have been pasted down on a lake that there arnt 5 to 50 people trying to fish! Gps doesn't help the cause either, I wonder what the future of ice fishing and the fish/ crappie population is going to look like in the next 5 to 10 years. Last year kinda shocked me to by the number of people out partying out on cedar and even the sound of subs going by in cars on the ice.. like really??! Could see the look of what is wrong with people from dads and familys out with their kids. Sorry about the rant
    • Bass Thumb
      I found exactly the same thing today. It was a steady 5" walking to the fishing spot. 3" of ice on the spot, if that. Cracks everywhere. Water pushing out of holes I had drilled. Not good.
