      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 .

Was out on pokie the other evening looking for afew crappies when i come by a spot where there had been a couple of permanent houses and you can guess the rest of the story. It must of been easier to clean the garbage out of the houses before taking them off the lake, empty booze bottles,water bottles, and a frozen styro minnow bucket. I guess people think those containers weigh so much more when they are empty that they can't carry them off the lake. I have fished this lake quite abit in the last 6 years and this year has been the worst for trash, almost ever trip out after the first part of Jan. i have picked up someone elses trash. Maybe these people should take there mom with them so they have someone to pick up after em, or even better, stay home and throw trash out in your front yard.

yeah it is quite sickening! Ice fishermen must be pretty naive thinking that all that [PoorWordUsage] isn't going to end up on the bottom of the lake when the ice goes out. I hope people aren't such slobs during the open water season.

hookset,

you can't tell people like that anytning that would make a difference.

what you can and should do , in my opinion, is call the c.o. and tell him about it. I believe in most cases, they do get around and if the house has been there a while, they often take coordinates and names or dnr numbers, just for occasions like this.

that is how they learn.

the other thing you can and should do, in my opinion is, clean it up and shake your head at the stupidity of man.

I take a nice ride around a few lakes after the snow melts and pick up all kinds of [PoorWordUsage], from wood blocks, to shitbags, to scoopers (SCORE)! to ice tackle to..well all kinds of stuff.

it usually doesn't amount to much more than a garbage bag full, but we filled two dumpsters once up on Red Lkae.

I just enjoy being out that time of year so it's no big deal to do it.

Jigglestick- I know what you mean about those people. I will probably be seeing the c. o. Pretty soon as i do most years about this time. (not many people on the lake this time of year and he likes to visit.) But until then i will just keep on pickin up and shakin my head.

I remember the mess Red Lake had back in the days of 10 thousand people a weekend chasin crappies. We often took an extra garbage bag off with us too. Haven't been there for a few years but i amagine its not as bad as it used to be.

Like the guy that i fish with always says-you can crush, bend,and fold all the empties-put them in one bag- and there still lighter and take less room then when they were full.

If by chance you know who's house was there or a vehicle description, get ahold of a local CO. Keep in mind that these idiots may fish that same spot after houses have to be off so keep an eye out for them. I'm anal about making sure everything that goes out with me comes back with me. I absolutely hate seeing people leave garbage on the ice. Lord knows I've picked up my fair share of other people's junk over the years!.

I am with you on that one brian. I pity those that are so weak from fishing that they have to leave their trash on the lake. I make a point to pick up any trash I can and once in a while a score on a bobber, rod, or scoop. This helps me pass the time when I can't catch any fish. Call me at work if you want to try for some crappies late ice. DH

      Well the weather was pretty crappy but the fish were biting...Had to sort through but kept some for dinner. Caught a variety today, eyes,jumbos,crappie and a few smallies... rigging on or next to rocks worked best for us.

      Good luck. Maybe we will see you Friday. I will let you know how things are looking by us as the weekend goes by.

      I still hope it's double!  I just went over the map with my brother and talked about our options.  We have enough places to go for sure.  It's always fun planning and talking about past hunts. I put out the question to the other two guys about staying in camp vs the house.  We'll see what they decide.  I hauled our "cabin" home from Ely today so we should have plenty of room if they wanna camp.

      Did a few off season projects waiting for Ice. - Underwater camera, Fish Finder, Wheel house mods and the latest converting a 2 cycle Jiffy Lite 90 to an ION battery auger. Got the auger off Craiglist for $10, Drill for $15. Second stage of gear box is a 5 to 1 reduction so got the auger blade to turn at about 250 RPM which I feel is an ideal speed. Gear reduction also doubled the torque of the motor drive. Planning to use the Dewalt 20V ION battery as I already have charger and now converting one of the 1.5 AH batteries to either 9 or 12 AH.  If anyone needs a mid 80's Jiffy Lite 90 motor and clutch PM me. Has great compression, never tried to start it.  Price somewhere between free and a gift. If you did a project this summer, would you care to share them? DJ ION Auger HB.mp4  << Click link for video

      You may want to consider #3 ; Rapala Jiggin Raps, or drop shoting. They both have been putting some nice size suspended slabs topside under some breezy conditions as of late. Fishing sure was downright epic the last week for all species. To bad it looks like "global warmering" is coming to an end for this year, was awesome while it lasted...... Those are some decent perch panman54. LOL!

      Pretty remote and flat back there. I haven't been on that exact shoreline but I bet you can pull a boat up there quite easily.

      I didnt hear how the second day went yet.  The long term average is 8% success up to 10% during the 2 deer era.  so 5.7% isnt bad for day 1.   Cooler weather will hopefully help us second weekenders. I havent seen much for rubs or scrapes here yet, should be starting any day.
