      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 .

Hey Kelly I was up on monday and went on from
Benz wasnt sure about the pressure ridge where I would like to fish is closer to W.W
than Benz but Im wondering if I can go across ridge with a six wheeler & trailer
or not or if I even need to go out that far
its three miles from Benz and it will be dark coming off lake and I'm a little
nervous about the ice as I'll probably have
the little woman and my nephew along whats
your best advice? probably fri evening
or maybe sat Thanx for info and the great job
you & the other resorts have done this
winter its been a blast havent gotten to
meet any of the regulars on the forum yet
but maybe soft water or next winter
good luck & be safe! RR

Redrider,

Why not just access the lake from WestWinds? That way you don't have to worry about crossing the ridge and you only have to go out about a mile or so.

Well I will if you all think its just as
good over there I just had found my hotspot to be on the other side of the ridge from W.W
is all I guess I had heard that they were doing real good closer to shore so maybe I'll
just give that a try is it real busy or is
there plenty of room where they are getting action? Thanks RR

redrider,
You will not get an ATV across the ridge with out pontoons it's wide and open.
Right now the hot spot seems to be all over the lake. There is no need to even get close to the ridge. We looked for a place to cross even in 3 feet of water but found nothing we felt safe with for the public. Also we decided that there was no need to cross it as the fish seem to be spread all over in the 10 to 12 foot range. Last night I just went about 1/2 mile north of any one else in 11 feet and did fine.
Messing with the ridge or tearing around the lake in the dark blindly is not worth it.
Do not follow weeks old GPS lines like the one guy did into the ridge two years ago. GPS's have no commen sense and cann't tell water from ice.

      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!
