      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 was up at Hillman's today and went out with Shorty on the lake. We drove a minivan out 5.4 miles, no problem. There is 12-14" inches in the road, and nearby. But,any rough ice may have as little as 3"inches,so all is not well yet.BE CAREFUL!Two nights ago they had two guys go out about 4 miles and get 22 crappies.There were some guys out there today that had gotten a couple nice crappies and a nice northern during the day today. So things are starting to get going.We need a few more cold nights.

Hey Matt those new hooks I got from you didn't work that good. I sat there for an hour without a bite. But maybe tomorrow I'll move the house out on the lake and try them in water. grin.gif
Really your Glo Spoon is one of my favorite hooks, I love it and I think your Glow Tubes will a winner also.

Fished out of Rogers about a mile and a half out and caught 0 crappies. We did catch many many walleyes though. Most are close to 20 inches too. We never went more than a half hour without a walleye. Wish we could have caught a crappie though. Did catch one 7lb northern and lost something huge on another tipup, assuming it was a northern, we never actually saw it. Overall it was very fun. Can't wait for the walleyes to be legal up there!! On another note, we didn't catch many perch. Last year we would catch hundreds of perch all day long. Yesterday we only caught maybe 10 perch max. Kind of strange.

The fishing picked up a little over the weekend, a few reports of 20 or so crappies by a couple groups. Bill T. was out on Saturday and caught 5 crappies between 5 and 6PM and before that he caught around 40 walleyes or so with the biggest being around six pounds. It looks like the future is getting a little brighter. 3 reports of 40+ inch northerns caught on Sunday. it looks like the fishing is picking up and with a little cold weather we should be driving all trucks by the weekend.

Yes, I am the Phelps with the lures. We are the creators of the Phelps Floater and the first Stand Up Jig,along with many other new products. Chris whom? I will have many leeches in the spring. Clue me in. All I need is a clue. Although, I will only have Supers.

Happy Holidays To All!

Those stand up jigs of yours are great. I caught some nice bass on them this summer tossing them in the weed pockets tipped with shiners. Great weedless lures!!

Are you clueless in your last post? (sorry - I couldn't resist)

All kidding aside, the Phelps are a class act!! If you haven't tried their tackle, pick some up. And when buying leeches in the Bemidji area ask if they are Phelps, they have the biggest and best!! A little background on the leech story, Matt was going to get me a pound of leeches just before a big tournament. Things got busy with checking traps , delivering tackle and going to captains meeting and they were forgotten. He made arrangements with another fisherman to ensure I had bait. The Phelps will take care of you!!!

Now that I have some time I was looking at coming up in the next couple weeks. Is it a good time to come or is it a good idea to wait until later in the year. Would also love to fish the northerns I hear about. Have never been to URL. Anybody have any advice?

      I just purchased the Humminbird Autochart Pro to use wth my Humminbird 999. After going through the 'installation guide' and the 'get started guide' that's included in the Autochart PC program, I can't find what I need to do to get this on my model Humminbird. Anyone have experience? Thanks, Paul

      Did well this morning on big bay with gold spinners. 24-26 feet off the edge of a reef. Decided since they were biting we'd try the west end to see if we could catch some big fish. Put up a big zero out there. Guess they behave a bit different from end to end.  On a small reef out west had a guy pull up on us, throw a marker right on the fish and camp out right there. Kind of tough to fish spinners when someone does that. What is the etiquette on this lake when someone does that? Just fish where you want even if you run right up on them or in between them and the marker? I see the thousand dollar  depthfinder in the back of the boat, just mark a waypoint and keep the marker in the boat man. Really grinds my gears. Whoops...sorry for the rant   Never had that happen on the east end though

      Coming up next weekend to pull up the docks for the last time. Yup, my brother-in-laws folks sold their place on Frazer Bay. They owned the beautiful place just west of the public boat landing.They are in their 80's and are going to stay put at their place on Arizona. Been coming up for 20 years and now I won't have a free place to vacation at. Going to have to do some surfing for rentals I guess. Anyways, how has the walleye fishing been? Guess the weather will be quite a bit cooler next week.  Thanks for all the help over the years!
