      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 .

Pressure ridges

Recommended Posts

I've seen a lot of really stupid things done around the pressure ridges this year, driving through red/orange markers into the water, moving barricades to drive into the water and on and on. Right now when the warmer weather is causing the pressure ridges to settle down into the water they are harder to see. Both last night and again this morning someone was looking at their GPS so intently that they drove right into the pressure ridge. rolleyes.gif We have to remember that our GPS's tell us the shortest line to where we want to go,,, not the smartest line. A GPS has no commen sense.

West Winds bridge is still there across the big ridge. We moved it again yesterday to a safer spot. Also in an emergency we can cross that one closer to shore.
There isn't any bridge across the new ridge that came out from the north shore across Hudec's road but there is plenty of room to fish on the east side of it. The ice is in great shape and the landings doing very well. West Winds landing now goes straight out into the lake rather then looping to the north so there is fresh unrutted ice and Tim has been using the grader along shore to kep it smoothed down. .

Hey Kelly-P,
My girlfriend has agreed to come up with me on Sat morning to fish the evening bite. She's a little worried about a 12 hour trip for 4-6 hours of fishing and she's pretty worried about falling through the ice. I know you can't guarantee anything, and ice is only as safe as the idiot driving on it, but what are the odds that we will be able to drive onto the ice to fish on Sat?
I think the last thing I need is to convince her to go and then have to walk out, or turn around and drive home without fishing.
Thanks for the info.

Erik

It should still be good ice this weekend unless we get a warm rain but that is not in the forecast.

Did Russ tell you he had to pull me out? There was no way we could keep up. I did see a funny thing though it was either a meteor or a flying ice auger.

well I bet Kelly is glad to get me on fish and out of there; I got to get his auger for two days,(the one with only half of the gas cap still attached and enough gas to drill 4 holes)I felt bad that I broke it I went to town and got another,we had a good laugh over that cause I didnt break it. the first night was a zip for me so the next day I tagged him around like a fly on sxxx, by 3 I was cathing fish,slowed down till 8 and were still biting at 10;30 glow jigs-white and pink Halad-you believe in your saying (YOU LIKE WATER) no I DONT!!! I couldnt wait to get to westwind in the morning to yak about you nose diving into the pressure ridge,(dont worry I will save you DUCK!!)as I watched you get out in 12" of water and your front wheels in 13ft of water,By the way do you know were the BIG roll of toilet paper went that was in the fish house?????? I was wondering why you wanted the heat on before you drilled the holes with the door locked!!!? thanks Hal; Jigglestick, Kelly told the story so you could see it frame by frame ,you got to remember airplanes are faster than you, even with the drivers door open, what is the bidding price on the augher at now?

Speaking of the triangle, last friday after moving for a few hours we finally found the fish. I get out drill, drop line, get bite, open the door to tell the youngster that we're going to fish there for a while, he gets out and my keys mysteriously get locked in the truck. How did the truck get locked?... Why was it only after we found fish?... mysteries upon mysteries.

      I just purchased the Humminbird Autochart Pro to use wth my Humminbird 999. After going through the 'installation guide' and the 'get started guide' that's included in the Autochart PC program, I can't find what I need to do to get this on my model Humminbird. Anyone have experience? Thanks, Paul

      Did well this morning on big bay with gold spinners. 24-26 feet off the edge of a reef. Decided since they were biting we'd try the west end to see if we could catch some big fish. Put up a big zero out there. Guess they behave a bit different from end to end.  On a small reef out west had a guy pull up on us, throw a marker right on the fish and camp out right there. Kind of tough to fish spinners when someone does that. What is the etiquette on this lake when someone does that? Just fish where you want even if you run right up on them or in between them and the marker? I see the thousand dollar  depthfinder in the back of the boat, just mark a waypoint and keep the marker in the boat man. Really grinds my gears. Whoops...sorry for the rant   Never had that happen on the east end though

      Coming up next weekend to pull up the docks for the last time. Yup, my brother-in-laws folks sold their place on Frazer Bay. They owned the beautiful place just west of the public boat landing.They are in their 80's and are going to stay put at their place on Arizona. Been coming up for 20 years and now I won't have a free place to vacation at. Going to have to do some surfing for rentals I guess. Anyways, how has the walleye fishing been? Guess the weather will be quite a bit cooler next week.  Thanks for all the help over the years!
