      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 .

Gloves

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.

      Got some grouse and saw some nice coveys. The biggest was 6 birds but found couple groups of 5. That is always fun.

      we mainly jigged fatheads in front of their mouths. 2 weeks ago also and tried a few different times over 3 days this trip. water is still crazy low so I don't think many boats will be using access. Also tried a couple different plastics and some gulp. Probably ready to go crazy up there soon.  Last year at this time it was really good. Might get there once more before ice time but not sure.

      Been thinking about breaking out the Jiggin Raps, might have to give that a shot. It's been too crowded out there this weekend with MEA going on.

      Sounds good! May an oversized deer with obscenely large antlers find its way to you!

      Well the weather was pretty crappy but the fish were biting...Had to sort through but kept some for dinner. Caught a variety today, eyes,jumbos,crappie and a few smallies... rigging on or next to rocks worked best for us.

      hummm, hadn't heard a thing?

      Good luck. Maybe we will see you Friday. I will let you know how things are looking by us as the weekend goes by.

      I still hope it's double!  I just went over the map with my brother and talked about our options.  We have enough places to go for sure.  It's always fun planning and talking about past hunts. I put out the question to the other two guys about staying in camp vs the house.  We'll see what they decide.  I hauled our "cabin" home from Ely today so we should have plenty of room if they wanna camp.
