      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 .

everyone here needs to remember that this website was created to SHARE information. While it may not be appreciated by some to reveal specific spots or lakes on an internet forum, let's not chastise any members for doing so.

Otherwise I will instruct you to read the Forum Policy again. Nobody wants to send anyone to the penalty box. Let's play nice here.

I agree, kind of pointless otherwise. If I was a better fisherman I would let you know where I am catching them, however I have not been. ERR !!! But I also know that not everyone is responsible and can be a good outdoorsman when getting this info... Hard to know who to trust I guess. Good luck the rest of the season, heaading to lake of the woods friday......

Ummmm yeah, that's what FM is about, if he's willing to share his spot, SO BE IT. Although I'm a little greedier and wouldn't give up exact locations HA HA!!! While we are on the subject, that's exactly what happened to my honey hole, One night they were biting, the next the whole community was out there and hasn't been the same since. Moved over a couple hundred yards and bam!!! A new honey hole. I'm sure the crowd won't be to far behind. But that's ok with me. Boy they are really biting good out on South Twin.

Thanks guys, that's the kind of attitude we like to see here. That's what makes FM so great!

Leech, I hear you about the community finding your honeyhole. If if you don't think anyone is watching you, I'm sure they're out with binoculars. That's what happened the last time I went out to one of my crappie spots. Everyone and their grandma had been there, where before there was not a single hole drilled there nor even a permanent house. What can you do? Have fun out there and keep your lines tight! \:D

I agree to a point. It is very good to share information, but ...

I don't think it is good to kill a small lake with fishing pressure.

I know I am in the minortiy but that is how I feel.

I don't think anyone disagrees with you hitman.

The point here is that Fishing Minnesota was created to share information. That's very clear in Rick's intentions. Whether or not a member wants to post specific lake information is entirely up to them. But members will not be allowed to attack or chastise any member for sharing or posting any information here. I don't believe information posted here was to intentionally ruin any resource. It was given solely for other members here to have a good outing.

This is a family oriented site and was designed for members to have some fun. Anybody that is here for any other reason than that is not welcomed to post here. The rules and guidelines for posting in this forum are clearly stated in the forum policy. Let's keep it fun.

Now let's move on.

Yeah, but you just gave up a hot spot on a hot lake that cannont handle a lot of pressure? Anybody notice the number of hits on this post and anybody been by there to count the trucks on this hot spot. Lets just hope 114 acre lake can handle an EXTRA amount of anglers.

Dead --

Glad you can see my point along with everyone else's point. They all do make great points -- we should NOT belittle or chastise anyone for just trying to share information.

That was NOT my point -- Pan Man -- sorry if you thought that.

Good points, My Brothers.

Thanks

We were out in the cold yesterday on Silver and got absolutely nothing. The highlight was seeing a sucker on camera swimming along the bottom, and having some roach-like thing swim up into our hole.

Funny about the bug-thing. Laughed out loud.

Shoulda snagged the roach and used it as bait...?? Or maybe that bug is what scared the fish away.. Never fished on Silver, but if anyone does any snorkeling, there's a bayliner drivers side window on the bottom of the lake that came off our boat a few years ago.. Never been back to look for it. Probably buried in the muck now..Don't ask how it got there..

thankfully no. I actually listened in my ecology class when we covered aquatic invertebrates. Another one to watch out for is a hellgrammite, also called a "toe biter".

I was with on this journey with dogwatch, not fun at all. That roach thing, was nasty looking. I looked away for about 20 seconds and he was gone, TG we were not using my house. We left early and tryed some geocaching, at least we caught something then. We will definately try a different lake next week. the Perch

      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.

      Dang Curt, did you take my suggestion on a drone?  Great report.

      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.
    • Bryan P
      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! 
    • JMP_37
      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
