      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 .

Need a Starting Pointer for Tomorrow

Recommended Posts

I'm heading up to Red tomorrow for the day and would appreciate any advice on a general area/depth to start. I haven't been up there since mid-summer when it started to die down. I'll be sure to share any knowledge when I get back.

Hey Grant,

The only thing to do on Red is to find water close to 14 feet deep and not in the middle of the crowds. There is no structure to up your odds.

Good luck though.

Yeah, I've fished Red dozens of times, so I'm a somewhat familiar with the lake structure. I was just wondering if anyone had been out recently (last few days) and had luck. Also, if they were willing to share a tip about general location or rough depth or a landing to get started at, and I'd let them/theboard how I did. I was thinking about going to the North end for starters, out of Hudecs, but will be checking around.

Thanks.

This last weekend we went out of hilmans and
turnt right 4 miles out
and drove another block or two set up
camp jigglestick poked some holes in 13'
of water and started to fish.
But first get out A tipup--big sucker with
A good hook (we broke 2) even before the
first beer, the pike come easy the crappies
take more talent, you have to try about 37
different hooks,jigs,minnows,drinks,before
you start to catch the motherlode of perch
wallies or slabs.
If you see A BIG RED pickup driving around
the lake it's just KELLY and hes lost grin.gif
he has his shirt on backwards no problem
just give him A captian&coke and he will
tell you that the fish are in the lake.

Good luck give it your best shot thats what
we do smile.gif

Hi Grant. I'm going to give it a try tomorrow and Friday and will do much as you plan to do. I like PUTZ's advice and will work hard to have some fun. I'll give you a report on how I do as well.

Thanks for the heads up. I really do appreciate it. I'll have a few beers in the box for sure, so I'll keep my eyes peeled for the yellow.

I'm going to try to get out there in the morning to make it an all dayer. I'll definitly rig some tipups and pace myself.

Thanks for the good word.

      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
    • 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
