      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 .

I just got off the phone with Adrains 20 minutes ago. Their road is still open, but they are not sure about the weekend. He recomended if he had a house out there that he would pull it in. He also said that he would not be pulling a wheel house out now or spending the night out on the ice. He said the road is really wet and slushly, also some potholes to go around. The weather has been warm the last 2 nights also, no freezing at night. He did say if the road makes it through the warm spell until it freezes again that people should be able to fish again. Cross your fingers since the weatherman is taling warm and rain for the next 2 days and 40's for the weekend.

JUST SUCKS!!!!!! The ice is crying!

Sucky news...

I've heard the Rainy River is a few weeks ahead of schedule in regards to its thaw and open water. Graceton and Morris Point will be the only ice access points to that side of the lake if the current weather keeps up.

Jerkbait: thanks for the update. Not what I wanted to hear as I have a reservation for 3/24. We had to pull the plug last year due to ice conditions and right after that it got colder than "H" and firmed back up. guess we'll have to wait and see what happens. It does mean I might get my dock and boat lift in early though LOL crazy

Just got off the road not even 20 minutes ago. There is about a foot of water off the access, then some dry spots and some spots with 8 in of water.

There are some pretty good pot holes, along with some cracks right across the road.

There is a heave that stretches along the road for quite a while and is getting bigger by the hour. 2ft it rose in 3 hrs. A heave also formed across the road about 4 miles from Pine. Also after crossing Pine Island it is a maze through the ice heave.

With this weather the conditions are changing rapidly, lots of people are moving their houses off.

bigslugger: thanks for the up to the minute data. this time of year things can change in a very short period of time. I would expect the resort with houses up on the reefs are going to be thinking seriously of started to drag them back.

Overall how was your fishing rsults?

Is this an instant replay of last year? Sure sounds famaliar.

The warm-up started a week early frown. Only saving grace might be that the snow banks and neck-downs on the road are not bad like last year.

Coming down to crunch time for me. I am wondering if I need to cancel my reservations and just tell gramps to stay home. He is putting in a 7hr drive vs my 4 hr drive. How far is morris point from Adrians? What do you guys think I should do?

Thanks

fishwater; you are correct it was a week later last year. my dates last year are the same is this years, we'll just have to hang in and see what happens.

badger: I would call the resort you plan on using and get 1st hand info from them. I can understand your concern with your grandfathers 7 hour drive. Hope it works out for you guys.

Starting to look to darn familiar to last year --JUST EARLIER-- right now bill moving off the reefs back to the shallow mud--bite has been better in the mud the last 2 weeks than the reefs anyway--just hate when we have to do these fast pulls--but the slush is taking a very high toll on the machines right now---the one bad thing about having a flat ice year is you have no idea where the next pressure ridge will apprear. For now want to get the houses back close to pine before a monster ridge show its ugly head on the reefs and we are on the wrong side of it with houses and equipment. Expecting a few buckles here and there when the sun finally pokes its head back out and sends the temps up this weekend. Say your prayers for a mild cold snap to firm things back up

Charterboss: Understand what you are saying. And I agree that the mud bite was better for us two weeks ago than the reefs. I'll touch base with Charlie next week and see what the plan is. Take Care.

Just got of the phone with Adrians and the road is still open on a day to day basis. They think it will be able to stay open through the weekend but there is a lot of sluch and some rough spots.

Some very rough spots at that. Make sure to keep your speed down unless you would like some costly repairs

      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.

      get a guide for a day

      That's what I planned on doing while I bow hunted but wasn't sure since I got one in spring if I could get another. Thanks

      I was marking various things, but I didn't note a correlation between marking something and catching the walleye.  Also was catching smallies on the same reefs, although maybe at a little different depth.   In fact I was surprised when the walleye hit.  Likewise the other one the next evening.

      Eden prairie purgatory lake is full of carp. You can see them from the dock or the bridge.

          Orvis has some awesome tutorials on their web sites. They teach at whatever level you are in flyfishing. I've gone there many times. They've also got an awesome app with fishing reports including wwater conditions, fly selection and hw to fish it.       Check them out and good fishing.

      I didn't fish any walleye this weekend- only bass. I would fish Friday and Saturday mornings from 530-830 and caught half a dozen largies in the 3-4lb range on a spinner bait. I just got my Garmin fish finder with sideview which will hopefully help me better locate the walleyes. Del, were you marking fish as you'd go over them?

      Latest Landing gossip...... First hearing in trial was july 25th.   Judge took motions under advisement. In the mean time, since none of the locals would work there, they imported a bunch of people on H2b visas as seasonal workers and put them up in a little house in Cook.  Charging them $285 per month.  Like 20 people in the house.   Now many have quit and found other jobs, and some also found other places to live.   They have to hang on since they need to wait until their scheduled airplane tickets.. which they also had to pay for.   That's the news from the Laundromat.... Believe it or so what.

      Neighbor guy got a couple slot fish on west wakemup with leadcore.   I got a couple, one 19.95 and other 22, rigging crawler also on west wakemup although a different area.  Mine were in like 18 feet.
