      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 .

WE come up every year and go out of your resort, and in the past you usually close for year around Easter. I was just wondering when you guys are closing down for the year?

Thanks

To add another question... I was planning on heading up this weekend, and was wondering how the roads on the ice are. Are all resorts still plowing? Any suggestions on where to start fishing would be greatly appreciated as well! Thanks

Was up there 9 days ago. Highbanks last weekend is the 15-16th, as Kim is due right after that. Hopefully has her baby on the 19th as that is what I put down on the Baby pool.

Road system should still be good and Highbanks has a map of his road system. Zoomers and Big Island and Perch bar would be good spots to start. We got some nice perch in 28-32 FOW 4 of us kept 50 perch and 5 eyes and 2 Jacks. It was close on needing an extension. Some spots you had a couple on inches to spare and some spots were kissing the bottom of the Auger. Bring the 8" just in case. It does you no good at home. Off road travel is 50-50 We ventured off road in a few places and only got stuck once. Bring a shovel if you plan on hitting those off the main drag hot/secret spots. Good Luck

HIGHBANKS

The lodge will be closing for the ice fishing season on the 17th of March (the stork is due to arrive on or around March 22nd!!). We will have a drop box available if you would like to use our access after our closing date. Our access and roads out on the ice remain in good condition. Ice thicknesses are ranging from 24-30" - no extensions are needed for the augers. Off road conditions vary greatly. It seems if you can find an area to get off the plowed roads - you can manuever fairly easy (make sure to pack a shovel though). The snow banks along side the roads are quite deep due to the continuous plowing. Good reports have been coming in from Big Island in 24-28' of water. Also south of that area in as shallow as 18' of water. Fatheads remain the choice bait. A number of old roads have been abandoned due to all of the wind and snow drifting. Stop by the lodge and we'll get you a copy of our road system. Many new roads were created, it seems that works better than trying to break through hard packed snow. Our plow trucks have really been taking a beating this season. If you haven't got in on the baby pool yet - stop by, have a cold one and get in on it!!

      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.

      HooDoo Point, Everett Bay public landing, or the Casino are all good landings if you want to fish Big Bay. The Y-Store or  the Food and Fuel in Tower both have good bait. Cliff

      Anything from moccasin point west can be pretty spotty with Verizon. If you're on big bay it's tough to beat

      I just read an article in the paper recently, that pout fest might be relocated to Lake Bemidji in 2018. It never gave a reason why though. Anyone know anything?

      Lauren (Bubba) Sawatsky has a storage facility just north of Cook on 24.  Might give him a call. http://www.vermilionbarginginc.com/htmls/storage.html 218 666 5512

      There is a problem with the latency of satellite.  Makes loading pages slow.    I agree that a cell phone data plan/hotspot is your best bet.  I think Verizon on East end, and ATT on West end are the choices.   ATT has a tower near Cook, and on south shore of Frazier as mentioned.
