      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 .

Kelly, I was sitting there at the bar when you guys bolted out the door to see if you could assist in that last truck going down. When you left there were two guys on the ice and one guy missing. What happened? Did they find him? Just bums me out every time I hear someone makes a decision like that and takes others along for their death ride. Hope all came out Ok. Just curious.... Also, your hard effort has been appreciated by all who have crossed your path. You are gaining a very commendable reputation and I for one would like to thank you for all the hard work that's made it possible for me to experience some of the best fishing memories I've ever had to date. Hope to buy you a drink you at the WW when we get some soft water.

About a mile from where we thought the vehicle had gone through two guys in a portable flagged us down that had heard someone yelling and pointed us in the right direction. He was wet but O.K.. smile.gif
This group had their portable blow away in the wind way down at Benz's road and chased it across the lake for miles. The portable went across the ridge and they tried to drive right across behind it. They were about 2 miles west of the bridge.
The other two vehicles both drove into the pressure ridge in the DAYLIGHT. One was heading back to shore for more bait but drove 1 1/2 miles in the wrong direction. The other vehicle just thought it looked safe. frown.gif

Glad to hear it. I still don't understand the overreaction by the Sherriffs Dept. I know I'm preaching to the choir, but that ice is still good for another week yet at least. Did you guys pull the bridge yet? What happens if I go out there in my pickup anyway? Aside from not getting any support from the local Sherriff. Will they ticket? Do they have the right to do that? Seems to me I have a right to decide what is responsible for me and what is not.

Eyewitness,,, what they can do is ticket you for "reckless endangerment" but whether or not they do is pretty much a judgement call by them.

Kelly Is that the guy who went down with 4 others and only three came up at first? I had run up to westwinds and reported this I think it was this guy, but from what I understood there were two trucks in the party, didn't know they were chasing a portable. I had one of the guy tell me to run up and get someone out there. I hope that this is who you found. Too bad about the sheriifs.

Phish on

Big brother strikes again!? I'm sick to death of authorities telling us what we can and can not do. GEEEZZZZZ I mean why not leave that decision up to the guys that are out there everyday moving bridges, plowing roads and generally keeping tabs on conditions.
I can't imagine the sheriffs dept. not responding to a call for help on the lake but I suppose now at least they can say 'I told ya so' after the fact

The one that went down that you are talking about was one vehicle with 4 people. One person got out right away and jumped to the far side of the pressure ridge. The other 3 came out on the south side of the ridge and were picked up right away. the "missing" person was walking down the north side of the ridge.
Today they were there when their vehicle was brought up. They were not chasing their portable, just looking for it.
I hear the Sheriffs Dept. could start writing tickets. I assume that also means that in years to come they will have time for officers to respond for anyone in trouble on the lake.

Glad to hear he got out, the guy I talked to told me they didn't know if he did or not. Still too bad about the cops.

      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!
