      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 .

Latest report?

BEEGONE

Hey guys. Does anyone have a recent report? I was up there last Sun-Tues and fishing was pretty slow. We fished in depths from 34-22 FOW off the Morris Point and Adrians roads. We will be heading back up there this Sunday and was just looking for a report. Has it picked up at all? What depths have been producing the best fish? The fish moving shallower with small fish being caught deep? Any help or suggestions would be great. We will be going out of either zipple, morris, or adrians depending on the reports. Thanks in advance.

If you want to catch fish I think you have to go across to Garden or Starren Shoals. We were there last weekend and did really well. Released some nice walleyes and caught a pig northern. Fishing was pretty darn good for late Feb. We took sleds across on the groomed trail, well worth the 40 min ride.

South side is slow right now hope it picks up in March!

or you can just go to zipple in 30ft and catch fish all day long with some mix of some very nice fish.the shallows will be turning on pretty soon for some big eyes and big pike.

Fished Adrian's road Tuesday - Thursday afternoon, sleeper in 29' caught maybe 5 fish the whole time. We portabled out to 34' or so, about 6 miles past pine island and did slow there too. From past experience I'd suggest Zipple like others have said for better late ice fishing.

Our group of 30 fished up by the reefs out of Wigwam Feb 26 and 27. We averaged about 2, with alot of saugers. We were in about 28 ft of water. Seemed like going small was the key with a light bite. Main time 11am-1pm. One guy got a suspended 29 incher as he was lowering his line down.

We had fun and the food was good.

We had a group of 6 up for 4 days, we each brought home a limit and ate fish on two nights. Probably threw back twice as many as we caught. Fished both deep and shallow, saugers out deep and the walleyes and bigger saugers where in shallower. We stayed away from the crouds and generators, fished pretty hard and steady in portables and moved many times during our trip. Went out of Wheelers point. She went back down the hole to be caught again.

12 of us just returned from our stay at morris point with very poor results. fished anywhere from 25 - 32 out off their road and only kept a few. some of us headed out of adrians on sunday and some out of graceton beach and both places were slow. We ran into a few guys in the bar who told us they were nailing the fish out by garden island but with the snow on sunday we didn't want to try heading out there. They had a lot of walleye and sauger and also a 44" pike. The people at the resort were great and we had a good time at night in the lodge so I'm sure we'll be back next year with hopefully a little better luck.

mnfishinguy,

What depths do you mean when you say shallow and deep?

Deep is 33-35 feet for post cold front fishing and shallow is less than 24 depending on what the weather is doing. As you can see from the pics we where out by ourselves and it was the best year we have ever had. Tried a few different things, some worked some didn't but having six guys and four houses you can really spread out your attack and find patterns that work.

      2 Trout stamps.  Did I miss something and need to go back and get another?

      The 200 foot rule gets me a little but it has to be defined somehow what is occupied and what isn’t.   So for a wheelhouse we get to buy tabs to have on the road and a sticker to have it on the ice and go away for a little while.  Seems pretty close to double taxation since any LE can find out who the owner is from the current plate. Plus the spear shack that I might want to keep up over the weekend.  2 tags plus license. Combination sports license 2 trout stamps Waterfowl stamps Pheasant stamp  Turkey license (stamp now included) Deer license for all seasons   The bucket is getting heavy with all the drops in it.

      Really no different than using your boat.  $14,000 fish house and $14.33/year is going to kill you?? What gets me is at the lake we are at in the summer, mostly out of state people in the campground and all of their boats, never leave that lake and they are all licensed out of state and not in MN.  That is a chunk of money the state does not see.
    • Fishing Frenzy
      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.
    • Finnish Flash
      7" of good clear ice in the couple holes I drilled in Pike Bay this morning.

      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.
