      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 .

Shuttle service

Recommended Posts

kelly-p

For those people without an ATV that wish to get out fishing West Wind and Hudec's are offering a shuttle service where you can be hauled out and then picked up and brought back to shore later.
With the bite moving so close in now it shouldn't work out to bad. The last time I was out we fished in only 10 1/2 feet of water. With great results. smile.gif

Just got back from two great days of fishing. Ice conditions were good. (can't believe we couldn't still drive out - although many were). We ended up walking out about a mile and had some great fishing (thanks Little Italy for the spot). smile.gif

Too anyone that is thinking of going up there. Go now!!!! Ice conditions are really good and the fishing is hot.

Kelly-P, What a great idea with the shuttle service. It is nice to see that there are still some conciderate people in the world willing to help out their fellow fisherman. My questions to you are, What date are you starting the service? How much will it cost? Do you have space available for all of the vehicals to park? What time of the day will the service be offered(How early? How late?)? And how many people and equipment can be hauled at a single time? Thanks again for the great idea!

Pwaldow123,
It's too bad I didn't know you were around. I could have dropped you off at that spot. I spent the day bringing part of the bridge in to shore. I felt it was best to take it slow and rest the truck alot. And then seeing as I had to wait while the truck got it's wind back I did some fishing at each place to kill the time. grin.gif I finally got that bridge to shore about 10:30 tonight. smile.gif
Mixed dna,
We started today with good results. Everybody limited out and it was only a 1 1/2 mile ride.
The cost is still up in the air but it looks like we will be at $10 a person.
We are using snowmoble trailers so there is plenty of room.
We started taking people out about 4:00 today and picked them back up at 10:30.
The hardest part for me was going from the plow truck to an ATV. I miss my lights and not having everything right there where I am used to it.

Kelly,

It wasn't a problem, I could use some good old fashioned exercise. grin.gif Talked to some of the boys at West Wind and heard that you guys were short handed and were also trying to get the bridge hauled in. Didn't want to bother you, besides Little Italy was a huge help. Saw it from the distance but was the vehicle on the flatbed one of those that went into the ridge?

Good to hear about the shuttle service. There's still a lot of good fishing to go before the ice goes out.

I, for one, just wanted to say THANKS to you and all of the other guys up there for all of your hard work. You guys worked your #$%^%&&*% all winter , so the resut of us could come up there, catch some fish and not have to worry about anything, knowing that somebody would be around to bail us out. smile.gif

Thanks again and see you sometime this spring. Would love to hear all of the stories from this winter. The sample I got just cracked me up.

I'll be coming up this weekend. How much room do you have on the shuttle for equipment? Will I be able to bring my portable fish trap?

There is plenty of room for gear, Bring what ever you fish with.
Top speed depends on how rough a ride you want. smile.gif

Kelly,

Is the shuttle service available back to Duluth after a few too many at WW????????
If so would it be more than the standard $10????
Any information would be greatly appreciated.

tubejig,
There are sleeper fishhouses on shore for that problem. smile.gif
The ride back in depends on the persons attitude on the way out, bad attitude and I forget you're out here. grin.gif

Watch out Ninetoe, it sounds like Kelly's memory is slipping, and it wouldn't surprise me if your face is the first thing he forgets.HeHeHe Hey Kelly, I just knew you'd find a solution to this problem. Now can you shuttle me back and forth to work. It shouldn't take you more than 8-hours each way on the wheeler and I'd have a good excuse if we were a couple days late!! Take care gents. grin.gif

KELLY, WILL ARRIVE ABOUT 6:30-7:00 @ WESTWIND ON FRIDAY. WILL THE SHUTTLE STILL TAKE US OUT? CAN YOU TAKE OUT 3 PEOPLE AT ONCE? IS THERE MUCH WATER OR SLUSH ON THE ICE? WOULD RUBBER BOOTS BE A GOOD IDEA? SHOULD WE BRING A SLED ALONG IN CASE WE NEED TO MOVE AROUND SOME ONCE WERE OUT ON THE LAKE? THANKS FOR ALL YOUR HELP & HARD WORK AND I HOPE TO SEE YOU FRIDAY.

Last night I had 4 people and all the equipment one trip, no problems. There is very little water or slush on the lake, it is freezing each night. There is plenty of room for a sled. Last night one group of 6 only had 57 fish but they did not have flashers and when it was too late they moved the hooks to more then a foot above the bottom. frown.gif The others groups limited out.
Two guys in a portable,,,they limited,,,,,,one of them caught 2 the other guy caught the rest of the limit. smile.gif Lots of smart comments there. grin.gif

      10 day forecast doesn't show anything with low temps below 15 degrees.  It might make ice but it wont be making it necessarily fast.

      Thanksgiving would be nice...but first week of December still works!   Rogers on Red is already allowing wheelers and sleds...no side by sides yet.

      A 30-foot-tall white spruce, selected as the state’s official Christmas tree, was cut down today in the General C.C. Andrews State Forest, near Willow River.  The tree will be set up at the governor’s residence, 1006 Summit Ave., St. Paul, around 9 a.m., Monday, Nov. 20. The tree will be lit Monday, Nov. 27. DNR staff and the Conservation Corps of Minnesota cut the tree on the Friday before Thanksgiving each year from one of 59 state forests. However, the search for just the right tree begins months before. DNR foresters keep an eye out for a tall tree that’s nicely shaped and well filled out. It also needs to be in a location where it will not be damaged when dropped and then easily pulled out and loaded onto a trailer. Minnesota’s state forests provide clean air and water, recreational opportunities, wildlife habitat, timber and special forest products. This year, small businesses are making 150,000 wreaths with balsam boughs harvested from state forest lands. The estimated annual sales for Minnesota companies producing holiday wreaths exceed $23 million and Minnesota’s public lands support a large share of this economic activity. Each holiday season, half a million Christmas trees are harvested from private tree farms in Minnesota, contributing about $30 million to the state’s economy. For each tree harvested, one to three trees are planted. Real Christmas trees store carbon during their lifespan. They can be chipped for mulch when the season is over, making them an environmentally friendly choice.
      More information and details on viewing the tree is on the state Christmas tree page. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      if it ever comes down to those 2 choices for you, do the eye thing. Cant fish with you if yer dead.

      Looks like Big Bay is still open, so I don't think I'll be ice fishing Thanksgiving Day weekend.  I'm guessing the Big Bay will freeze this Sunday or Tuesday.  Lake should be walkable by December 2 when I plan to go up.
    • leech~~
      Why do you think I come here everyday?  It's better then poking your eye with a sharp stick or slitting your wrists! 
    • gimruis
      I don't see any serious cold snaps in the next 2 weeks so its likely open water will still be in play for those brave enough to try it.

      Now is tough time. I was watching bays ice over a week ago and they are wide open again this week. Could be ice fishing in 10 days, could be ice fishing in a month. Who knows? I have a work trip to North Dakota in 2 weeks and I've been clinging to the hope they might be iced over so I can fish a little afterhours. Probably a longshot. I've already spooled the reels, cleaned and organized the gear, charged the batteries. Trying not to fishing-shop myself into financial woe. Even tried to celebrate open water by wading in neoprene waders and trying to find some sunfish on wetflies. No dice. Ugh.
