      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 .

I'm curious if I got one of these last weekend at the ice fishing show? I got a stand alone model that has the open end of an S-hook attached to the rod and the closed end on a key ring attached to the stand. They were $12 or 2 for $20. ( I only got 1 as I couldn't convince my buddy to get one) They looked great to me but can't remember the name. I'll get a chance to try it out this weekend at URL and next week at LOW
FISH ON!!!!!!!

The Rod balances on a metal shaft with a half-moon cut-out.

You really do have to use it to appreciate it. Seeing it will not do it justice...although it does look very durable.

Take it on my word...if you have a portable you want the Tub/Bucket mount Rock-n-Reel. The Rock-n-Reel can easily be attached to it and folds out of the way when you're not using it.

The stand alone Rock-n-Reel is the more versatile and also folds up for easy transport. I ordered 3 more Tub mounts yesterday. I had 1 so I'll have 2 Rock-n-Reels for each of my portables. I also have the Stand Alone Rock-n-Reel for more mobile situations or when I go fishing with others.

Both types will be powerful tools in your Upper Red Lake fishing package. They will help you detect even the lightest bites.

We have 40 coming in. Sold 16 yesterday and 12 today sight unseen.

We only have 12 left as of 11pm, Thursday, 12/12/02.

You can call toll free to order:

Hey Rick -

I met you at the show on Saturday - You sent me over to Tbone to purchase the R&R's which I did qty. 3 of them - heres my question for you (since T is up on LOW today I think?) what is the best position of the rod on the R&R - horizontally level, rod tip slightly pointing up or rod tip slightly pointing down -- I can place my various rigs on R&R and put them in these different positions but I'm not sure if there is any one particular way it should be placed. Thanks!!

The lady selling the rod holder I bought at the ice fishing show was good looking and wanted to take me fishing.(She didn't say she wanted to take me fishing but I KNOW she did!) Also I was at the ice fishing show twice looking at everything( or so I thought) and didn't see anything better than what I bought? i don't remember the r&r by name, but the 2 other holders i looked at seemed inferior.

      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.

      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.

      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.
