      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 .

The Truth About The Fishing!!

Recommended Posts

W.W.BarTender

Well I thought I would in-form everybody about the fishing so far. Yes there are people fishing on the lake but they are only going about a mile out at the most. There is about 5 inches or so at the most. The fishing has been very slow right now. They can only get to 8 feet of water or so. There is still some thin ice out further so it is not to safe to go very far out. With the cold weather its making a little more ice every night so it should not be to long before ATV's will be out there. I hope this helps.

The way I feel some mornings what we might may need is NO bartender. grin.gif
Not a huge buck but nice. Grey curly hair all over his head and even the tenderloins were tough enough to grow in your mouth. I'm so happy I passed up the little ones for him. Looks like a lot of jerky this winter.
The really big one came past Mindy and Littly Italy the morning of the 2nd day. Stood broadside in 4, yes 4 different firing lines. In each case by the time Little Italy snapped Mindy out of her hangover and told her to shoot it was gone. Not even one shot was fired at it. What the heck,,, the most fun ones are the ones that make a fool of us and get away. smile.gif

Hey Kelly, was that last line directed at me? I guess not. Just my paranoia flaring up once again. Did I really meet NINETOES last winter or was he a figment of our collective imaginations?
Check out the ice fishing main forum. I posted one of my stories under the 1st ice story thread. Its a long one but most of mine usually are. Take care and hope to see you in a couple of months.

Good story! smile.gif Brings us all a reminder of the "Iceman Jinx" and the fact that it will soon be starting all over again. Maybe we should team Iceman with NINETOE? That should good for some great action. hehehehehe

NINETOE, You might want to be careful if you get a bucket of them spot tails. What if Duck-o-holic sees a bucket of them late at night? That would be an ugly sight wouldn't it!!!! grin.gif

Wait till you see the pictures of "Dancing Bear" showing W.W. how to give CPR to a Teddy Bear. He is a character. Some day when we're together you'll have to have NINETOE tell you about the day they faked a fight and blew every gasket I had.

Those would make a good "priceless" commercial. Bring on the ice man!!

Kelly should start a "Priceless" section on the Waskish Minnow Station web site. I think I have a few pictures I could send.

The best part is we'll be back for more fun this year.

The wind did not do a lot to the ice, it just blew the snow around. The cold weather this week should be a plus. Baitco was out on Saturday and got a few pike, but the ice was still thin in places.

Duck-o-holic

Kelly--

I've never done a whole bucket. But I DID get kicked out of a restaurant for DEMANDING a basket of Spot Tails and Fries! Guess they thought I was drunk, and didn't know what I was talking about... they were sure right on one of the two accusations at least!! smile.gif

ScottS and NINETOE-- Just remember... I'm a pretty good artist too! As for my smoker: It may not be very big, but I only use it a couple of times a year, so who cares! Cheaper than going to the Meat Market too!

Duck-o-holic

PS-- Maybe West Winds should look into serving beer battered Spot Tail baskets??? With a beer chaser of course!!!

Dancing Bear

Hey Kelly email me the pictures of me reviving boo boo! Have not seen them yet and since you won't answer my emails figured I'd try you on the forum. WI deer was slow this weekend going back up for Wed-Friday and then it's off to TX to where the big ones play! Any idea as to when Bear season is going to be this year? See you in December, figure out where they are before I come up will you? DB

Understand! Miss you guys, looking forward to getting together again. See you in December sometime. Probably the 20th-21st weekend. The housing situation looks scary though, any place to stay around there then?

      Why do you think I come here everyday?  It's better then poking your eye with a sharp stick or slitting your wrists!

      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.

      Miltona is wide open, there will be quite a few boats out there this weekend. Most lakes south of Miltona are fishable by boat.

      Can the DNR or who ever reported this, never use this word again "presumptive" when dealing with Wildlife disease results again! It can be better used as, "We are awaiting the presumptive proof of Al Franken touching a boob." But not about Wildlife issues!

      It's all open...it's ready to go..But we won't see any big time cold for awhile..Still in better position then last year. I was open water fishing the first weekend of shotgun in a t-shirt last year. We'll be alright.

      Be careful in Vineland bay, even though the river runs out there, there is still some current. It's very sandy there. Find vegetation along a drop off and you'll find pike. If you are going on foot you can walk out of the East access at Father Hennepin and hit a drop off pretty close to shore. Let us know how you do!

      Interesting on the common merganser. I want to go but I'm not sure either. I was hopeful our go to lake would be open. It is but locked up tight with ice from the landing (in a sheltered bay) several hundred feet out to the more open part of the lake. Haven't seen anything on it either. Our lake is wide open and bait shop owner says he remembers terrific late season hunting on the channel full of cattails into the neighboring lake,  and I've seen birds flying by, but will have to monitor the weather. Not launching the boat if its in the 20s and gale force winds. If it was warmer and a light wind, why the heck not? My wife is also saying no, don't go. We have a lot to do this weekend. I'm like, I would go right on our lake and likely be done and in the house by 9:30 Saturday morning. I would doubt you'll be up by then. lol.
