      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 .

Fished Friday out of morris pt. the road was open to trucks to the pressure ridge so we ended up fishing in 20 to 17 ft all day. Very high winds and rain turning to sleet. Only kept 4 keeper walleye between the 2 of us all day. Saturday went with friend out of long pt.area.with his side by sides out about 6 miles to large pressure ridge.Fished in 37 ft of water  Saved the trip for us did real well finishing off our limits. We had a couple of 20 in. slot walleye. Saturday was warm and sunny. Plenty of  good ice with wheelers you can go anywhere!

Ray, We were out there as well.  Thursday on the drive up, we left later than normal, about 430pm, arrived 1030pm or so.  We drove through rain and sleet most the way up and we must have missed the freezing rain as there was indications that salt was applied to Hwy 72 north of Waskish on a way back Sunday.  

On Friday there were some small lakes nearly white capping on top of the ice from the melt and rain.  So sort of an interesting challenge getting out.  We fished on the edge of a reef and our bite as so-so, a lot of little ones.  It was beginning to freeze as the sun went down.  We were blasting through standing water with an half inch or so of ice.  We we were on a 4-wheeler and we were covered in a nice layer of ice from the tire spray and the high winds.  It must have been 35 to 45 mph winds out there.  Lucky the Clams survived.  We had a hell of time getting them folded down and packed up.  

On Saturday morning that half inch of top ice grew to 2 inches or so.  We saw a snowmobile stuck in 18 inches of water with the riders standing on the seat waiting for help from the other sleds there.  We were lucky that we put the ice chains on the wheeler as we busted through the top ice a couple of times.  The chains saved us.  We headed out and fished in the mud and had a better bite.  It was good, but not great.  No strong winds on Saturday and very little water left on the ice.  

I am thinking this was our last outing, but who knows what the conditions will be like in two weeks.

Hoey, we also drove up Thursday in rain though we got up there around 7:30. Saturday was brutal my brother fished outside with his back to the pickup. I was in my clam, wind shook it so hard felt like I was getting sea sick. Had to be sitting down all the time or it would blow away.Saturday was so much better I think the fish bit better for us before the sun came out around 11 or so but man that sun felt good! I'm thinking of one last trip up this weekend to cap off the ice season. Man it has been a good one.

      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.

      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.

      Did a few off season projects waiting for Ice. - Underwater camera, Fish Finder, Wheel house mods and the latest converting a 2 cycle Jiffy Lite 90 to an ION battery auger. Got the auger off Craiglist for $10, Drill for $15. Second stage of gear box is a 5 to 1 reduction so got the auger blade to turn at about 250 RPM which I feel is an ideal speed. Gear reduction also doubled the torque of the motor drive. Planning to use the Dewalt 20V ION battery as I already have charger and now converting one of the 1.5 AH batteries to either 9 or 12 AH.  If anyone needs a mid 80's Jiffy Lite 90 motor and clutch PM me. Has great compression, never tried to start it.  Price somewhere between free and a gift. If you did a project this summer, would you care to share them? DJ ION Auger HB.mp4  << Click link for video

      You may want to consider #3 ; Rapala Jiggin Raps, or drop shoting. They both have been putting some nice size suspended slabs topside under some breezy conditions as of late. Fishing sure was downright epic the last week for all species. To bad it looks like "global warmering" is coming to an end for this year, was awesome while it lasted...... Those are some decent perch panman54. LOL!

      Pretty remote and flat back there. I haven't been on that exact shoreline but I bet you can pull a boat up there quite easily.
