      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 .

It's too shallow to consistently hold any fish. People have tried fishing up there but no luck. Pretty weedy too.

The ice up in the north end of Andersen Bay has been a little unpredictable the last couple of years. I've been told that Andersen Windows has a warm water discharge up in the north end that makes the ice unpredictable plus they have a bubbler going on their boat dock. Just go to the boat ramp up in the bay and you can see how the ice is kind of screwed up. If you stay to the east shore you may find some good ice but I just stay away from there now.

The bay itself holds fish and it is a mixed bag. I liked fishing it because you had about 12 feet or so of water and my underwater camera worked good up in there.

Yes. They do post thin ice signs all the way across the bay. They have a steam plant that is dumping warm water into the bay up there so the ice never gets anywhere near as thick. They have 5 dock aerators running too in order to protect their boat dock and covered slip from being damaged by the ice. In my opinion it's not worth the risk to go up there since the fishing has never been very good in the winter.

You can park in the Excel Energy King Plant fishing parking area and walk across the road and down to the location you talked about. It is a little bit of a walk but then you won't have any parking issues.

You should be able to park right at the Bayport Beach area. I'm assuming you were in the marina area?

I think he was fishing up in the north end of the bay near the warm water discharge.

The officers are sick of the residents calling in all the time and complaining! It is sad that the few places we can shore fish are getting harder every year to use.

      What did you and Wanderer find for ice thicknesses at the lakes you were on?
    • Rick G
      Sorry for no more live updates. Got too busy fishing...lol Pretty decent morning bite, slow afternoon, followed up by a very good evening bite. Plenty of noce fish caught if you worked for them. 
    • eyeguy 54
      fun day for sure.   good to see those that popped up. get that eye pic up rick! Thx Moose for starting us out in a good area and for lining it up.

      Looks like you had a better bite than I did. I really didn’t expect all my gear to be that bad hand pulling out.  Big time failure on my part to not bring my wheeler.  I have too much of a spearing Jones to have left it all back at the truck. I brought a few gills, a seed, a crappie and a 25 inch walleye home.  Biggest gill went 8.  I went through a half dozen heavy pike suckers on the tip up but never dropped the spear.  Only saw one 20 incher that never really got in the hole.  The walleye inhaled the sucker and got the hooks in the throat. Glad you guys got some nice ones!

      I found a new unopened Minnesota V6.0 on Craigslist for 75$ and it was only 2 miles from my house saved me a trip to Cabela's.

      I’m sure we will still be waiting for a bit for even walkable ice but hopefully people in the area can keep there eyes and ears open and let the rest of us know how the ice is and when it get here.
