      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 .

Recommended Posts

MedicineMan

Well, as of now its in its preliminary stages. But so far I'm thinking of having the get together on the weekend of July 10th. Fishing on Medicine peaks early/mid July so this would be the best time. But what I'd like to see is some ideas from you fellow FMers. All questions, suggestions, and queries are welcome! If you want to contact me in a more personal setting. My email is Melor1917 at yahoo dot com.

Med Man,

I'd like to get together for an outing on Medicine, but I don't have a boat. If someone has an extra seat that weekend and would allow me to tag along, let me know.

Thanks.

I was thinking that West Medicine Lake Park would be a good meetin place. There's lots of places to beach you're boat. They've got fishing docks, picnic tables, bbq grills, a nice play ground if you have kids. This park has pretty much everything. I'm thinking that we should have a meeting time. Moby and I would get out on the lake around 5:30am. But I'm sure that most of you wouldn't be getting out there that early. I'm thinking that we could meet at the park around 10 or something?

Sounds like a blast MedMan, but I'll be up on LOW during that time.

This is a great chance to learn a lot about Medicine Lake, as well as catch some fish. MedicineMan knows his stuff about the lake and the other fishermen joining him are top-notch! If you are looking to have a lot of fun and get in on some action than this is the event for you!

Good Fishin,
Matt Johnson

Thanks a lot Matt, too bad you're going to be gone doing that time. But I'm sure you'll have a blast up at LOW.

It sure would be fun to get together especially with the resident expertise. Unfortunately I will also be in the LOW area.
Matt I sure hope you pound them and get some great pics from LOW.

Like you said med man we'll probably be there earier than most. Due to a wife that doesn't fish and the amount of recreational traffic, 10-11am is generally around the time I get the heck off the lake. We'll see what happens.

Joe,

Thanks for the offer, I might have to take you up on that. You're right, I stopped in to buy some bait last winter.

I plan on getting a boat next spring and will probably fish Medicine quite a bit since I work in Maple Grove and live in Rogers. Medicine is pretty close by so I'll be sending some business your way.

Thanks for the offer on the boat. I'll let you know.

I believe that I can make this too.

Speaking of Medicine. I was there last night with my good friend Lance. The wind was tough for my jon boat but we found some place out a the wind that made it somewhat possible.

I fished a spinnerbait most of the time. I got two nice 15-16" bass and missed a pike and some other short strikes (No trailer hook though. Lance was switching baits and found that a fluke was good for a bit. Then that died all of a sudden. His big bass was 17.5" and he got 1 about 15" and baby. We got some in the pads and some on the edge and 1 away from the pads. Kinda here and there.

Total bass = 6 in about 2.5 - 3 hours.

Anything after the July 4th weekend should work for me as long as it's a Friday or Sunday. I have yet to make it out there.

Autumn, I don't think Joe would enjoy having a bunch of drunkin' roudy fisherman running around his place. But that would be fun to see though. grin.gif

      Be looking at these two general areas. Thanks for heads up on south end.
    • NELS-BELLS
      My son and I fished from 8 - 4 yesterday out of Beacon Harbor.  It was super windy so we couldn't be as mobile.  We caught 6 eyes, all under 17", in about 8' of water and another 10 after we moved out to 11'. Also a few big Perch.  Only 2 fish on dead stick and the rest jigging.  Gold or pink seemed to work the best.  Fun day! Nels
    • Wanderer
      OK thanks.  I haven’t had an issue yet.  I just got low on powder and needed primers so I decided to try the Blackhorn 209 now.  I remembered reading this post. At the C store there were plenty of Triple 7 and Remington 209 primers in the ML supplies @ 9-10 bucks/100.  The shotgun primers were running running low though and I grabbed the last 100 pack.  They’re only 4 bucks/100.  I figured it would be a cheap experiment if nothing else.

      Not a hundred percent on the age but it's a Frabill Excursion and both are in brand new condition. Not to worried about the weight of it it won't be more than a handful of times of pulling it out before driving my truck out with it. The price difference between the two is what I was looking at.
    • FirstIce
      Does anyone have any input on the kdrill on a gas auger? I have seen a few people use this setup. Do you need a special adapter to use it?
    • Wanderer
      Are they both the same age?  Equal condition?  Do you hand drag or machine pull?  Weight will matter a lot. You really have to consider how you plan to use the house.  Happiness with the houses performance is the biggest key.   Otherwise it appears to be a trade from a $480 house to a $700 house based on new house prices if I looked at the right Frabil.
    • icepike 1
      It's not thermal. How's frabill's customer service in case you break a poll or something?
    • going4it
      The only problem I had with my frabill was its weight. It was a tank to pull and tough to put in the bed of the truck. 
    • Billy G
      Anyone else think the number of people ice fishing in the last 5 years has grown greatly in our area? To me it has and to me it seems alot harder now to find a spot of your own, or spots that have been pasted down on a lake that there arnt 5 to 50 people trying to fish! Gps doesn't help the cause either, I wonder what the future of ice fishing and the fish/ crappie population is going to look like in the next 5 to 10 years. Last year kinda shocked me to by the number of people out partying out on cedar and even the sound of subs going by in cars on the ice.. like really??! Could see the look of what is wrong with people from dads and familys out with their kids. Sorry about the rant
    • Bass Thumb
      I found exactly the same thing today. It was a steady 5" walking to the fishing spot. 3" of ice on the spot, if that. Cracks everywhere. Water pushing out of holes I had drilled. Not good.
