      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 choose E. Yes definatly E, All of the above. Because that's what fishing is. smile.gif
The best part is that 3 of the 4 that have responded so far have not even been on the lake yet. That shows why there aren't any "fishing reports". Very few people have been out there looking so far and it appears that WW has been up late studying again so he thought this was a real quiz. grin.gif
Also if anybody goes out there and does great are they going to say anything???????
NO WAY! Because if they do they'll have 1,000 people following them around the lake the next day/weekend and that "hot spot" will get burned out by a crowd. frown.gif
jigglestick,
Those little voices are talkin to me again. shocked.gif There are saying it's Dec. for crying out loud not Feb. or March. 3/4's of a mile or more SW of where we first met. smile.gif

I keep read thease posts everyday and I see some people asking if the fishing is good yet. The fishing in my opinion is always good, if you can find the fish. I will give you a simple example of that I hope it helps. One time my brother and I hit the north crib area after they were put in, still flags marking off the open water. We were the only ones there all day until 3 or so when others came by us. BY 6 there were 14 portables there. In a matter of 45 mins,from 6:30 to 7:15, we had our limit, after checking with others by us they had between 3 and 5 fish. So if you going by what people always say you may never go fishing. The key is just to find them. The only thing I have ever noticed about the feeding of the crappies in the winter is that on average they feed better in late afternoon and early evening than any other time, but thats just been by the average of my fishing experiences.

I had a house that was doing great. 8 days straight the customers limited out. It had an open day so I had my son send his Boss and his friends up. 4 people caught 1 (ONE) crappie in 8 hours. frown.gif The next day I had 2 people that had never ice fished before in their life. I set them in the house at noon and explained that it would be 5:00 or so before anything started to happen if it did at all. They didn't care if the fish bit at all they were having fun being on a frozen lake. smile.gif When I checked at them 2:30 they were limited out!!!! In the middle of the day in the same house that only caught 1 crappie the evening before. That's fishing. My Son's Boss would have said it wasn't worth the trip, the two first timers would have said it was great.
Fishing reports are how the fishing WAS, not how it's going to be.

The FISHING is always great on URL !!!!
It's the catching that can be sporadic ! grin.gif
Anytime spent on URL is worth while......just be sure to have plenty of refreshments in case the catchin' is slow.

I know I'll be there in search of Slabs this weekend....after a few small eyes on LOW during the morning .

I'll be in a clam 5600 with a trailer pulled by a red Yamahammer Big Bear.

Kelly, if you're around and spot me....be sure to wave me down. I still owe you LOTS of thanks (and Captain's) for all the information last winter....and it sure would be nice to FINALLY meet you wink.gif

I did really well on Red last night just west of the cribs. I didn't get set up until about 4:30 but they were biting as soon as I got set up. I was the only house in the area. The bite very fast, definetly a 1 rod night!! I was using minnows with a glow hook. I was really suprised at the size and numbers of the fish I was getting, as I wasn't even close to the cribs.

Well, I just made that up but I did have a dream about crappie fishing last night grin.gif

The Crappies will bite...Just stay the hell away from the cribs...and maybe give it a try in 8 feet of water.

      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.    
    • ZachD
      Idiots   I am heading up Friday I will be walking out don't have to go far for good fishing this early
    • ZachD
      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
    • Fishing Frenzy
      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.
    • PRO-V
      Next year you will have to buy one for wearing long underwear or pac boots.
    • fish_hunt_guy
      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. 
    • tfin
      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
