      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 .

Has anyone out there found a glove that is fairly thin warm and water resistant, I'm always looking for something that still maintains some dexterity for late fall fishing and setting up the ice shack and for hole hopping.

I have tried a ton and havent found any Im happy with so I keep using fingered wool gloves with whatever fingers cut off that I think I need. Closest I came was a striker glove but I forget what they were called.

Yep, tough to beat wool gloves. They're relatively cheap and most importantly quick drying, so I keep multiple pairs to switch out to dry when necessary.

My favorite all around wool glove are the ones with all the finger tips cut off. But I have have a few pairs of mitts too, some with flip-able ends and some without.

They aren't waterproof, but you don't have to turn them inside out to dry. Just chuck them on the dash for a few minutes and they are good to go again smile

The best glove I have used is the made by glacier glove, the Alaska river flip mitt. They are fingerless but have the mitts. The are lined with fleece, wind proof, and have a neoprene palm. Having a neoprene palm is the ticket when handling panfish, they really help keeping them dry. I love them for hole hopping. They may not be the warmest but they keep the wind out and thats half the battle. I will put a hand warmer in my palms and that really helps keeping your hands warm. I've only found them on line.

Thread on keeping hands warm

I purchased a pair of Kast Steelhead gloves. They are pricey, but totally worth it for me. I fished several days last week in cold conditions. Hands remained completely dry and warm.

Cabellas made some Gortex/Neoprene glove/mitten combos, kind of like the wool glomit. Those are pretty solid and are the ones I use the most.

Anybody tried the SealSkinz? Supposedly waterproof on the outside and wool on the inside?

I completely agree on the Task glove, I lost my first pair and didn't want to spend the money to replace them but in the end found nothing beat them. Then after a week or so of buying a new set found the old ones in my wheel house under the mattress of the bunk! I would buy a third set if it came down to it.

For actual fishing, the best I have found is the neoprene glacier glove. They are thin, and completely waterproof. They even have a wrist strap, so you can stick your arm completely under water, and still keep your hands dry. I am wearing them in my avatar. They are not the warmest, but I have not had a problem while fishing. When snowmobile, walking, or whatever, I put some big mittens over them. Leather choppers work fine. Another thing that works is a rubber glove like they have at hospitals, and those cotton (or better yet wool) glove liners.

I still like the ice armor gloves but if its way cold then I use the ice armor mittens.

Another thing since I have poor circulation in my hands is a wrist band that holds a hand warmer. I saw these some place then couldn't find them (or maybe I was just dreaming)anyway I made a pair and they help a lot by heating the blood going into your hands. the ones I made just Velcro around the wrist with the hand warmer on the under side of your wrist.

      Jeez no. I can barely remember the netting discussion, let alone which side that I was arguing! Yup, you can see us cruising past quite often probably intent on satisfying the little one's quest for some ice cream at Moosebirds. She loves Sue and Ron. I'll definitely wave or stop by if I see you. I'll be up the next two weekends.

      How do you guys like to fish the west end as we transition into September and early fall? My next planned time at the cabin will be Labor day, I'm sure it'll be plenty busy on the lake but hoping to find a few quiet spots in the mornings and evenings to do some walleye fishing.

      Plus+1  The size seems to drop off late in the year. Last year bait shops I went to were selling Large as Jumbos and small as large!

      Reminder, meeting tonight at 7:00pm in Annandale and written comment period runs til August 28th. The email addresses for comment are on pages 18-19. Comment now or the days of fishing your favorite lake anytime you want, will be over! I’m sure this is coming to a county near you if this goes thru out here.

      Not uncommon at all for this time of year.  I used to try and find some regularly around Labor Day and always ran into problems.  I think its just the nature of the bait business.
    • BringAnExtension
      Does anyone know where I can get some jumbo leeches between the Twin Cities and Mille Lacs?  I would even settle for large.  There seems to be a shortage of supply. Thanks!

      Our prayers were answered from the south with some river flow. For now the river is back to easier and safer boating so we can get around.
        The catfishing has held steady, same as the past two weeks. The fish have moved to the shallow off current sides of the river since the nights have recently become cooler.  Sits have become longer to 25-35 minutes per spot to allow the fish to find the bait.  Mid-Day don't be afraid to find some current or move back to the middle to see if the fish have moved out to feed.
        Bait has been frozen suckers and frogs.  All other baits just don't seem to have the same effectiveness.
        We are entering into some transitions to fall and things will be changing over the next week or two.  The new flow should get the fish moving a bit more and that fall feed should ramp up over the next couple weeks.

      Also check for water in the fuel filter. At higher rpms water droplets travel to carbs and causes poor combustion. Happened to me some years ago. Had to drain water out of tank.

      Skunked, It was nice meeting you.  I've seen you,  your wife and little one a few times, but you never waved-thought you might be mad at me after we had a little debate on netting.  Sounds like were good!  Stop by if you see me on the dock.  That was my wife and sister in-law assembling the bench. That pinch area on the river is tight and some folks tend to fly right thru.  Also, people fishing on that dock in the pinch down area in the spring, don't like to reel in their bobber when you try to navigate through the boats in the spring.  I used the fish the St Louis River a lot and fellow fisherman were terrible flying by you.  I too follow the no-wake policy when going through tight areas.

      Yep, done for the year.  Not much for heat or insulation in the cabin.  It's a real, honest to goodness cabin.   So, as of Thursday, adios.  Until next year, etc.
