      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 .

Best Ice Fishing Trip

Recommended Posts

Dozer

Where was the best Ice Fishing trip youve ever been on? Im looking to make a once in a lifetime walleye/crappie trip this winter. Im open to whatever wherever. I can bring my wheelhouse or go fully guided.

Im looking for something I will talk about for the rest of my life!

Lets hear some stories.

Ive heard if you could go to devils lake, good perch and walleye action. You can go to www.edbaitshop.com and get gear, bait and reports. Some people i know just book a room in a hotel for a few nights, go to the bait shop, then go out on the lake!! Just a suggestion!!

I know it sounds cliche, but the group you are with, whether they are family or friends will usually make the most memorable trips. My buddies from high school/college and I are planning our 4th annual trip. The past 3 years were Red, Mille Lacs, and Waubay. We slammed the walleyes on each trip, but very few of the fish are involved in the "remember when..." stories.

I think if you are looking to catch fish that you will remember forever I would consider Lake Winnipeg/Red River.

I'm with MattL on this one. Life is all about the stories. The time my friend sat in the outhouse on RED LAKE for an hour. When I asked why he was gone so long he replied "I was just waiting for the Sunday paper" and " never did get that coffee I ordered". That's what makes a trip memorable for me.

Lake of the Woods. Fished it for the 1st time in 2011, been back every march since! It's the only fishing trip all year I specifically target walleye. But am happier when I catch tullibee! Trophy potential for several species is a plus also.

      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?
    • ANYFISH2
      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.
