      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 figured I'd make my 2500's post a lot like my other posts, random odd short posts with mostly useless information. I mean, it is kind of a like milestone, it's half of 5000, and 1/4 of 10,000.

I was going to leave it at that, but no, I can't. laugh .....

So with out delay, I'll just say;

I hope you all have your best year of fishing in 2012! I know my 2012 Ice season ended with the BEST season I have ever had, and look forward to a stellar open water season. As always, 8 times out of 10, I have room in my boat to take you fellow HSO members out. I have met some really amazing and fun people on here, and always enjoy their/your company on my boat.

Good luck this year!

Matt

Congrats Matt!

Perhaps for your 2502 post you can tell me if you have seen anyone use a boston whaler montauk for fishing our local waters. I may be able to get one for a great deal from a friend who is moving. Its just I have never seen one being used on our local lakes. Thank you for your 2501 posts, but I only care about 2502 for now:)

Congrats!

Hey Simple1, that BW boat would be an AWESOME boat if you are looking to just fish, but if you enjoy taking the family out and going for a cruze every so often I would stray away from it, I am not saying it wouldn't work but it just isn't going to be near as comfortable/nice for accomadating non-fishing people ha ha. Also depending on the shape it is in obviously.

Boston Whalers are great boats, before we got our Tracker we were looking at getting a center console Mako, my uncle who lives in Florida has an Action Craft and all I can say is once you get use to a center console boat you will love it! Also I still do not understand why poling platforms haven't caught on up here. Even though we are not "poling" that often up here ha ha they still are very nice to have, for tubing, standing, leaning, cutting up bait, setting stuff on when you're standing (like a workbench). Personally I would jump at the oppurtunity to get a Boston Whaler for cheap but that is just me! Good luck Simple!

      Moose is right. We fish the same area and all those lakes were sketchy with old sheets of ice and lots of open/skim ice. I have not been out this week but vetween my brother and friends i have heard the ice is all getting stronger. Idk if ive ever seen lakes freeze like this. Plus snow everyday makes it scary when u cant see the ice. No mater what dont go alone and just because u see people out there dont mean the ice is good. Lots of circumstanes this year where u have 6 inches in one spot and 5 feet away there is one inch

      Out of the north west part of the lake yesterday, found anywhere from 5-8 inches of ice.  Close to a few pressure ridges there was less than 3 inches.  There are a lot of patches of rough ice and pressure ridges so be careful.  Saw several places where spearer's were set up where they pushed the ice block under the ice and did not mark their holes, please people be cautions.

      Here's the scoop, Buddy Hillmen is now allowing 1/2 ton trucks with single axle wheel houses.. Also any size wheel house pulled by wheeler or side by side. Drive slow there's a bridge plate about a mile out. Do not try and cross berm to the south of road. I have all ready seen a couple tracks where they did not make it through. be safe use commom sense and enjoy such a grand lake. On a side note. Last weekend a small fish house was set up about 200 yards from me. Sunday I was driving by and noticed a plastic bag so I stopped to pick it up. It was pushed down into the augured hole and turned out to be a bag of poop. From now on I will be taking random pics of wheel houses and if I find that kind of crap again I will be reporting to dnr and expect a possible ticket in the mail.

      Some are fishing it.   But the winds kept parts open till Monday.  Be cautious as you go.  Ice thickness really varies.

      I checked ice earlier and there was 2 different ice sheets one was 4” ant that time and the other was 1 1/2”. The 1 1/2” ice was most of the lake. Be very careful on there.

      Most coho being on Minnesota side are 12" - 17".   Occasional bigger fish.  Very few 3# pound fish.

      SM, Nice meeting you today! I am sure we will see each other again! We ended up catching 6 walleyes and 6 tulibees. Kept 3 walleyes from 14" to 19-3/4". We quit at 1:00pm also.
