      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 .

Hey walleye365, the bite was good Saturday and not as good Sunday but still ran into good numbers of fish Sunday. I described how both days went for us earlier in this thread. If you start at the top of page 1 of the thread and read through it you'll find the info.

Good luck up here and hope you find fish! grin.gifgrin.gif

There's no way to predict how good the laker fishing will be even a day or two ahead, or even today, really. Just gotta get out there and hope for the best and see if the fish are active that day. I've done well in all weather conditions and been skunked in all weather conditions, too.

Hey Tracy, leg lift adds to the action of the swish grin.gif Get a large print of that photo and put it on the wall. A definite "trophy".

Steve, no kidding about the skunk days. Sheesh, I have not hooked into any of those narly trout for some time now. It's odd, when we use to fish off the Gunflint we almost always caught at least one fish or more a day. Some days slow, others snappin'. I know I have put my dues in on the big B. Hopefully the Trout God will transfer credits to Lake Superior this spring and reward me with one of those big Gitcheegumee gals ;\) BC

Well, I gotta admit, its really cool to be able to relive the moments through these SCHWWWEEETTT photos Steve took while I'm sitting at work waiting for the plumber.

I think we might have pricing to discuss there Mr. Catfish. ;\)grin.gif

Opening day this season I picked off that 8.5 lber, then nothing for three more days of fishing. If the laker gods are that demanding, after Saturday, I figure I'm not going to catch another for, oh, 7 or 8 days. crazy.gif

But I think they're a touch more merciful to you Northern guys, so, BC, good luck and I hope you get big returns on your payments!!!

Those laker gods. They defy common sense. At some point you just gotta shrug your shoulders, look at the sky and go: "Yo, laker gods, when is is MY turn?" grin.gifgrin.gif

Wanderer, you have my e-mail. grin.gif

Nice fish and great pictures to go with it. What more can a guy ask for. I wish I would have had someone like Steve with me on Red last Friday. I caught my biggest pike ever ( 40 inches long and fat) and I give my camera to my buddy to take a pic. He supposedly snaps the photo and I put the fish back only later to find out there is no picture. cry.gif

      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?
    • Dirtyfisheyes
      By the look of the forecast, single digit lows at night and no snow. Should it be safe to say that the first of December would be safe for snow machines? Itching to make the trip. Also any recommendations for lodging would be helpful

      Yesterday Finn and I went hunting for ducks and I should have had 4 mallards and pair of woodies.i hit one woodie and it hit the water as Finn went to get it jumped up and flew away. Next weekend I will try again.

      Second week of December is looking good for southern Minnesota, if the current long range forecasts are close to accurate. Maybe even the first week of the month with a little luck.

      I figured I would start up a new thread for us to use for the winter now that things are starting to set up and guys may be starting to creep out on the bays and smaller water.   I did some more poking around on Pike Bay this morning and I don't have anything much new to report. We've got less than an inch of fluffy snow on the ice and things healed up after the warm front this week. I worked my way from shore out into the middle of the bay and ice was relatively uniform between 5.25 and 5.5 inches of nice clear ice. Earlier this week I checked all landings on the Tower end and everything was iced up except for open water way out in Big Bay appearing to mostly be all West of Birch/Ely islands. Not sure if all the recent strong winds from North and South have changed that status though. I'm still sticking with my original guess of December 2 for my first trip off McKinley on 5 inches.   Good luck this winter to all and Be Safe!

      extended forecasts look good up north. We won't have fish-able ice in the metro until at least the 2nd weed in December assuming no dramatic temp changes. The big Expo is Dec1-3 but temps look promising ~1.5hrs north. I wonder if the ability to go fishing might impact the amount of traffic at the show!
