      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 .

Best place to buy bait?

Recommended Posts

Guest

Coming up to spend three days in a sleeper. If I run out of bait,is there a close place to get good bait without taking a hour or should I try to bring enough to last 6 guys three days? Is there an easy way to keep 800 minnows alive.

There is plenty of bait and tackle right here. West Wind, Hillman's, Hudec's, Mort's and Roger's. The best part is that they know what is happening/working on the lake in real time. smile.gif

Last year Hudecs was selling the river shiners that are from that area and LOW area, they are a far more active and energenic minnow, it was well worth my time to buy from him. I believe all the bait shops will try to steer you right, like Kelly said they know whats working. Good luck fishing and Kelly, get those decoy houses ready I'm sure some binoculars will be following you.

I've seen you in action at W.W. Kelly. You call that peace and quiet? Anybody come up with a shower facility yet? Looking like you when up there is hard to avoid with all the hospitality served up at W.W. but smell is a whole diferent ballgame. Never got to see the famous Mazda in action when I was up there. Does it scale buckets of jigglesticks as easily as the Chev? Heading for Iowa for a few days to chase birds and then start thinking about heading up to harrass you in person. Out.

Burbot Bruce's big 2 story house has a shower. He has the best house on the lake. It's a lot like Hillman's old "DoubleDecker", fish downstairs and sleep upstairs.
That night the bucket of rods bit the dust was good example of why you need to be able to move fast. We moved your house and my sleeper out of that crowd and over 2 miles away real quick. That was great fishing that night after we moved out of that fast growing crowd. I often wonder what the crowd thought, just when they get the houses surounded the houses break out leaving vapor trails. smile.gif
The bucket of rods was unfortunate but if that guy wanted to be right along side my house he shouldn't have his rods in a white bucket. frown.gif I was too busy trying not to run over people to get to my house to notice a white bucket.
Good luck down south. As good as your dogs fish they should meet Halad's dog and learn to drive too. grin.gif

      well we finally got our home computer back so it sure is nice to be able to type again instead of using the phone.
      The wind were wicked Monday night but by the looks of it this side of the lake held together so that's real good news.
      Lonnie and his buddy braved the winds yesterday and headed out ,they managed to get 7 of there 8 but it was a tougher bite then last time they were here on Saturday.
      This weekend is going to be crazy up here as I have had quite a few inquirers about lodging on shore. Buddy Hillmen may have something but he is tough to get a hold of as he is busy building that mammoth house.
      We ran into a hiccup on blue thunder and have a part we can not get off to replace. I'm hoping Tom can come over and button it up. as Devon worked his butt off to get er done. You could see the disappointment in his eyes, Blue thunder is my work horse and I'm feeling the pressure of getting her up and running..
      Our new used lake truck may show up sunday if all goes well. Its name is Cheyanne "I think that's spelled right. It blew a radiator in fargo and is arriving on a trailer .
      Old Minnesota is the only house that I have not detailed as I also had some major work on her that was ignored while I was trying to break 80 at the golf course this summer. Every one have a great thanksgiving and if your coming up here make sure you check in the resort your going out of as they have been on the ice everyday

      I've got 6- 8" on my home lake. I've heard reports of 3" on Eastern side of Fish Lake from High Banks Resort-Blue Max.

      Idiots   I am heading up Friday I will be walking out don't have to go far for good fishing this early

      If I remember right you used to have to get a license a while ago before they changed it to the if you occupied it rule. I don't think 14.33 a year is going to break anyones bank. Hopefully they use the extra money for stocking purposes

      Yeah looks like the 2nd weekend in December if we're lucky before you can ice fish this area. Going to be another late year on the ice.

      Next year you will have to buy one for wearing long underwear or pac boots.

      Love the reports Smuts. Looks like another great season. Keep it going!
    • slammer
      It just never ends in this state.  Tax, tax, tax.  Where does this money go?  Whats next?   A tag for your vehicle to drive on the ice?
    • leech~~
      Fun for some folks that went exploring early ice from a few years ago.

      Hi Cookie,  a buddy and I are going up this weekend.  Will they bite much after dark or is the water too mucky this early.  I appreciate any info.  Thanks
