      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 .

After this mornings rain West Wind has closed their road. I see on Jerry's Report that Roger's has also closed. Halad posted that Benz's is closed. I can not be sure but I did hear yesterday that Hudec's was closed and the phone is not being answered.
Mort's closed a couple of days ago. Hillman's is foot traffic only.
If a person wants to walk out there is room to park at the Waskish Beach.
Thanks everyone!!! smile.gif In the years to come we can look back at this year and smile. grin.gif

it's all just a blur. looking in my glove box at the access tickets, i think i need to get a season pass. hard to believe the ice season is over. like you kelly, i'm oddly looking forward to a break. a release from the grip, from the phenomena that takes hold and doesn't let go until there's no choice but to wait til open water. hard for one who's never been up there to understand. but all it takes is one successful outing to understand fully.a big thank you to every one who helped out myself and every one who i drug along with me. a big thank you to those who finaly made the trip with me, as the best part of going for me, is watching the expressions of disbelief, amazement, and pure child like excitement.what a great year!
will i be back? is a frogs @$$ water tight?
one week before i have to go back to work. time to take advantage of this beautiful weather and see how much my kids have grown. i hear my youngest is walking now.
go live life!!-------jigglestick-------

I imagine that there will be one hell of a party in the Waskish area tonight! Thank you everyone for a wonderful season. A special thanks to Kelly, you know how to take a trip and turn it into an adventure! Now you all deserve to go into hibernation for a while. Later.

The end of the year "party" was pretty much Tim and I sitting at the end of the bar and having two drinks each while looking at each other with that deer in the headlights look. Then off to get some sleep. smile.gif After all the people all winter there wasn't even one customer in the bar.
What a year! I met so many great new people this past winter and the worst thing is that it is all like a big blur.
I met "idiot's-son" the last 2 nights. While he may change the name we gave him he fits right in here with the rest of us. You're all gonna like him.
Friday night I shuttled out two guys from Iowa. One's brother had told him if they got their limit in one night and were back the next day that he would, "kiss their A** in the middle of main street at high noon".
I wish I could have been there for the show. smile.gif

The promise on Main Street never took place, he was to busy asking when the fish fry would be. He thought maybe we should go back this weekend, I said sorry, ice gear needs to be packed away, time to shoot some turkeys. I would like to thank Kelly for taking care of us Friday night, it was a long drive but well worth it, that last fix for the year was great. It was great meeting those of you from the forum in West Wind Friday night after fishing, I plan to spend more time there next ice season. Wishing you all a great boat season, I will keep my eye on the forum as first ice approaches, see you then.

Jitz...I hope you mean more time on the lake not in the bar...you'll end up turning out like us! grin.gif hehehe Glad you made it home alright Friday night, what kind of drive is that 7-8 hours? That would've put you in bed about the same time as us! You slid out of the bar just in time...it got crazy right after you left. You sure there isn't anyplace safer to fish between Waterloo and Waskish? Tell your brother we've given him a rain check...it'd be better to see it in person in Waskish next year than the pictures than the pictures now! smile.gif

Good Luck! See you next year!

It doesn't seem that long ago that I was at URL and they were just letting the trucks go out on the ice for the first time, but 8 trips and 36 friends later the season is over. My last trip was with the family for the week of April 6-12 Wife, son, son's friend, and I made 2 last trips out on to the ice. Mon. the 8th "I am sorry I am so bad at names" but the lady working in the tackle shop at WW gave me perfect direction to get on top of the fish. At 8;30 you couldn't keep them off the line. I quiet after a 1/2 hour just to watch the kids pull in fish after fish. Next days fish fry was the highlight of the year. Same results on Wed. All year and with everyone I brought up to URL, we always had a great time, even when we didn't catch limits. I have enjoyed the area for its hospitality at WW, Hilmans, Sandys and Hudec's. I have a cabin on the river so I don't spend as much time with the locals as I would like, but you have all made each trip a great experience. I have Ice fished, Open water fishing ,fall Northerens were great, Bear Hunted 3 for 4. Deer Hunted 1 for 5. Snowmobiled and Four wheeled. URL is a good as it gets. I will be back the week before opener looking for some spring Crappies. Most of all
THANK YOU!

LABS4ME - We did not drive home that night, we had a room at the Americ Inn in Blackduck, back on the road at 10:00 Saturday morning. I am glad we left Friday night when we did, it had already been a long day. Next ice season we will be looking for lodging closer so we can stay at the bar longer. As far as spending more time there next season, I hope to split my time equally between the hard water and the bar, hate to drive that far and not be socialable. Take care all and be careful in your boats.

Jitz

P.S. That "triangle thing" that seems to go on up there, according to my brother I haven't been quiet right since that trip, do you suppose that comes from being with Kelly-p or you guys in the bar?

      Well, I have to pay for registration on my boat trailer to run it on the road, and the boat to run it on the lake, why shouldn't wheel houses?  I guess I don't feel bad for the wheel house guys.

      No not yesterday. 2 weeks ago when we had that first cold spell I went out on Baxter, Blue and Long and checked the ice. They were locked up but only had 1-2" inches so didn't venture out too far. Baxter probably was walkable but had open water on the back end so figured I stay off. Last Sunday I went and checked them out after that warm rainy week we had and they had open water, so yesterday I skipped checking them and went farther north. But I did notice most lakes were locked up on the drive up there. Cant wait for the local lakes to get some decent ice!

      Wondering if big sandy is clear enough to spear fish when the ice comes on? Never done it before and would like to give it a try
    • monstermoose78
      Bryan did you check any lakes around me?
    • Bryan P
      Had to scratch the ice fishing itch, so I drove up north to the Mille Lacs lake area and found a smaller lake with 4-5" of ice. Punch a few holes and found some crappies and sunnies. Nothing big but was fun time and a great way to start my ice seaso n! Bring on the ice!  Check out the video: https://youtu.be/BTTv_G07PB8

      Hey, I resemble that remark!!   Plus my wife only went fishing with me once the whole time that we have been married and she brought a book! I got her trained in right away. Sorry about your training problem!

      Ok but with all those Trout. Bring a tow rope as I may be stuck in the slush!
