      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 .

last year I fished a couple of lakes for tullibees.each lake had a completly different bite.one lake you had to jig and tease them into biting,the other seemed that if the bait was jigged even in the slightest they would just swim away.What I would like to know is was it the presentation, jig color,or the different lake? anyone have any ideas?the two lakes were Mille lacs and Leech.

It was the different lake. Did you fish the lakes on the same day? By changeing lakes, you are changing environments. The environement the fish lives in helps dictate the mood they are in. Changeing lakes to help find active fish is sometimes a good idea. If time is a factor, change spots. Not all of the fish in the same system are feeding at the same time. Tournements prove this theory every time.

I was on Leech last weekend and did pretty good. (a 6 gallon bucketful in 2 hours) the fish seemed to be away from the groups in about 28 ft. of water. they were running anywhere from a foot off the bottom to as high as 9 ft from the ice. You had to simply watch the locator and adjust accordingly. Agressive jigging triggered nearly everything that came thru.

We fished 24 ft. SE of stoney point.

mjgrose,Last week you could drive out on the ice.There was a road plowed out, but if you want to get away from the crowd then you will need to bring a snowmobile.Some people tried atv's but they spent more time digging out.the area that the crowd was in was not very productive the CO that we talked to said average in that area was 6 per person.bottom line bring a sled.

captkev., I would get your bait ahead of time most of the bait shops will not be open.WE used waxies under spring bobbers.Dont know if it will be the same when you go.If someone knows of one that will be open we could use some help.You should be on the ice before reeds will be open. All 6 of us used the same jig color it was red/w black.one in our group only caught 3, but the rest seemed to do pretty good with that.

Thanks for the feedback Mallard1662, If your out there, I'll be in a 2000 3/4 ton chv. 4x4 silve/blk toper and a 2000 polaris 500 xcsp red/black. It would be nice to meet a few of you from time to time. As for the 50 fish Limit, that dont bother me, Shure I'll bring a few home to put in the smoker, but how many can a guy eat, I'll give some away too, take some to the bar after they are done. I'll only make one trip and I'll be filled up on smoked fish untill the sucker run in the spring. and thats only if I can catch one to bring home, we might get skunked. I'd like to catch a couple of those 12-14 inch perch everybody talkes about. that would be a real treat also. one more thing. everyone talks of Stony Pt. I've stayed at the campgrounds there and fished muskies in the summer, Is that the access that everyone uses or do I need to go somewhere else to get on neer Stony Pt.????<BR>Thanks for all the help, Hope to see ya there.

Joe,we freeze our fish and smoke them all year long.I would freeze them in water to prevent freezer burn though.I can't tell the difference between fresh or frozen after smoking! sure are good though!If you want to know how we do our smoking,you can get me at: mallard1662@hotmail.com

mjgrose--I worked at moreys in montley back in70-73 all fish that came in were froze with an ice coating,we tossed them in huge tubs of cold water(a salt mixture)the salt came out of the second hose as water,aii licquidified. we us a glass measuring tube just for salt brine,not sure where to get one. it measured in %. left them over night and smoked the next morning, I believe it was maple,hickery,and a dash of apple chips. wish i could remember excat measurements. any tullies that came in from red lake were packed in ice and smoked each day,just gutted and gilled heads on. hung heads down ,with a meat thermoter in. trout,halibut,salmon,laid on screens.

You might take a look at this site:<BR><A HREF="http://3men.com/threemen1.htm#Prepare" TARGET=_blank>http://3men.com/threemen1.htm#Prepare</A> the Fish or start from their home page at <A HREF="http://3men.com/." TARGET=_blank>http://3men.com/.</A> The first one has a brine recipe and other instructions. I have tried some of their BBQ recipes with good results.

O-kay, Here's another question, say I drill three holes and fish 2 lines with hooks and use the third hole for the flasher with no hooks, will that be legal? that is three lines, but only two of them have hooks....? have you ever seen this or done it yourself?

I have never done this sort of a thing,But if there is no hook I would believe that it would be legal.<P>[This message has been edited by mallard1662 (edited 03-16-2001).]<P>[This message has been edited by mallard1662 (edited 03-16-2001).]<p>[This message has been edited by mallard1662 (edited 03-17-2001).]
