      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 .

Anyone else having a tough ice fishing season besides me? January and February were way slower than normal for me. Can't find good action in typical panfish spots.

The fish are there, they just aren't aggressive. I must have tried over a dozen lake that have traditionally been very productive. Just curious if its just me, or if anyone else is having a tough go at it.

I have not had a decent day of fishing since before the walleye season closed, that includes trips the Red and Mille Lacs. I am about ready to through my vex down the hole. Well not yet, but it is frustrating to mark fish that just wont bite day after day. Gonna try Lake of the Woods this weekend. If that trip is no good, I don't know what will happen. Maybe get the boat ready. Hopefully late ice is better.

I have noticed some finicky fish, but you can still find fish that bite. I noticed that tip-ups were not very promising this year...

I hate blaming the weather....but can you remember a time when there hasn't been a steady weather pattern that lasted more than two or three days? Everytime I think we're setting up for a good steady period something blows through.

I think that too often we blame the weather because we have to keep searching for the fish....but this year I'm blaming Mother Nature for only getting on a few solid perch bites and a good crappie bite.

Well, not that I'm glad some of you guys are experiencing the same problems I have been this year, but at least I know I'm not the only one.

Supposed to be in the upper 30's all next week. maybe that will finally trigger the bite. confused.gif

I have had a few excellent panfish bites. only big sunnies and perch. just couldnt get on a good crappie bite. same with walleyes. Best was probably in leech when me and a couple buddies filled a 5 gallon bucket half full with 10 inch perch and nothing under that. this warmer weather should get the pannies snappin tho.

      Let us know how it goes. I have a cabin on Linwood just off Whiteface. Be nice to find good spots in the area, seeing as for whatever reason I never fish Linwood...

      What a morning jigging on one of the best, fastest bites of the summer for me Tuesday morning of this week.  I had a guide trip but they cancelled that morning and I almost stayed on shore. Since I had the boat in the water and everything was set I went out by myself to check out a couple of spots.  I didnt get very far

      Low water continues to be the issue on the Red. Below the dams still remains sketchy so use boats at your own risk.  The fishing remains stable, similar to last week in that the fish are spread out but in the holes in the middle of the river.  Short 15-20 minute sits on spots keeping the bait fresh looking for the active catfish.
        Bait is still heavy to frogs and frozen suckers with goldeyes working some but it seems that frog and sucker are the best.  As water cools down I suspect fresh sucker will come into play as well.

      I used to have many fields but some guides came in and pay for the fields. I am down to 3 farms but they don't have any small grains this year. So I am going to take the early season off. As I know the geese will use some ponds to rest and I have access to them so I will wait until the regular season to pick off a few geese.
