      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 are unsure what the ice is going to do this spring as mother nature is in control and it has been a odd year.

Although we have come up with this plan.

Spring plan

Well if mother nature plays nice and melts the snow cover off then keeps the temps low enough to hold the ice pack it could be some great fishing. Of course ma nature is going to do what ever she wants. I'm hoping for some good conditions into the end of March so we can get some decent fishing in this spring before I have to start prepping the boat.

Best to email me for this as I have a few options and prefer to keep the boring business stuff of the forum.

I think I was just kidding. It just sounded funny the way I read it. What happened to a little humor involved with this whole forum gig. I love how the same people jump on others for certain comments. You actually think I was hoping for GPS coordinates. Fish move and I am currently aware of that. "I know Jonny P and that wasn't nice man!!"

So on my GPS it show different bottom colors. That means what? Muck and gravel? Do I want to be on the gravel? Never fished URL so any tips would awsome.

The colors are depth contours. 1-3 one color, 3-5 another so on and so forth.

For Crappies you want to stay deeper then 12' mark on your map until ice off. That is the mud for the most part. Once the ice is off the crappies start heading across the gravel/sand.

(I'm going to always give an informative answer you jokers \:\) )

We are starting to pull them today. I'm feeling old and wore out but Jon still has some energy left so he might keep some out awhile longer. He is starting guiding people out from shore on Monday. In other words he's in charge and I'm in my recliner. Kinda like most of the winter. grin.gif

"Kelly plowing in the full reclining position!"

Wasn't that just after the Red Chevy sacrificed itself to keep your 1 ton from driving into the pressure ridge?

grin.gif Reclining seat all the time, bent steering wheel, doors that didn't close anymore and with the bent frame it made left hand turns real good. O the fun we've had through the years. grin.gif

      Thanks for the update cigarguy- were you lindy rigging?
    • CigarGuy
      Neighbor and I went out in Wakemup for a couple hours tonight and got a 18" and 19" and had a nice one come unbutton on the way in....Leaches and crawlers.  That's good for me!  20 - 34' off a break line.  Del, working on the last flight of the steps-was looking for you to stop by and help!

      I used lead core on Friday and had a ball catching walleyes of all sizes.  I started in the morning and stayed out until I just got tired in the afternoon.  I probably pulled in as many as 20 or so.  My formula was:  90 feet of line, 19-24 ft of water, #5 rattling split deep shad rap.  Silver color.  I kept it right at 2mph.  I also did much better when I pumped the rod in a regular cadence.  Keeping it in the rod holder didn't produce near the fish. 
    • mtheis
      Ace, I hope you enjoy your retirement.  I hired you one time and my boy and I had a good time.  I appreciate the hard work you did on putting us on fish.  Good Luck and maybe "Little Ace" can continue the family business some day!   Michael Theis

      These are legal aliens.  Glad you enjoyed your lunch.

      Trolling or casting jigs and spinners(silver or gold are best for pike IMO) near the weeds, in bays, etc, cranks, and top water buzz baits around weedy areas are how I get most of my pike. Use a leader. Orange jig heads with a sparkly yellow twister tail and a jumbo leech gets me more pike than any other method. Your mileage may vary.

      I had lunch there a couple of days ago. Great service and good food! I did not see any illegal type aliens there at that time!  Cliff
