      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 .

bayport crappies have been hit and miss. did well on them a week ago (xmas day)... this past weekend not many crappies.. although they appeared (on vex) to be down there... did get a few walleyes, saugers, and silvers. my buddy was out yesterday morning.. got a half dozen nice crappies. from what i take... you just have to be there at the right time... so not hot... but not bad either.

someone was smoking newport cigerettes on my spot.

just go off the phone with my ol'man... he was down there this morning... he said it was terrible... same thing... he said he could see them down there... not biting though... perhaps this little cold front and rise in pressure turn them off again. man... they can be finacky. sorrow for the bunk report... i still might try it this afternoon if i can sneak out of work early.

We were out Sunday. Fished the WI side, 40' of water. One 14.5" walleye. Pushed it down the hole only to see it later under the ice, dead. Enough to make a guy cry. I saw a few other dead shorties under the ice too and a few crappies. Not many fish being caught while I was there. Not much on the point, either.

Hey, Sinker.... Where do you go on in N Hudson? Do you fish in the hole in front the little lake there? I usually fish out of Bayport but would like to try some other spots!

Sturgeon46, I get on at the landing you see all the vehicles by.South-east of the Bayport access.I usually go north about 1/3 of the way to the group of shacks you see on the WI. side.It drops off quickly from shore and it's basically 34' to 38' of water.I don't bring home buckets full but I usually can get a few crappies and saugers.Walleyes are running small.How are you doing for walleyes over there?Do you fish off of that point by the beach?Keep in touch.Good Luck Fishing!!!

Thanks, sinker. That's where I fish too - both sides. I was thinking you might fish closer to Hudson. I've been curious what fishing might be like in the quiet areas on the east side.

Sturgeon46,the farthest I've fished to the south on ice is where you can see a small group of shacks down by the black railroad bridge.They'll look like dots from the Bayport area.From there north to the landing where everyone gets on I've caught some big crappies.My daughter caught the biggest one I've seen down there,almost 15",a few years ago.Are you or anyone else doing anything on walleyes?Good Luck Fishing!!!

I'ts been slow for me on the walleyes. I only get out on weekends when traffic is highest and with no snow, I'm convinced the fish are spooked by the time I get at them. I fish with my 16 yr old son and I can't get him out of the sack to fish the early AM so we go in the afternoon after everyone has already stomped and punched holes all over. I'm going to move away from the crowd next time and see what I find. I'll let you know.

      2 Trout stamps.  Did I miss something and need to go back and get another?

      The 200 foot rule gets me a little but it has to be defined somehow what is occupied and what isn’t.   So for a wheelhouse we get to buy tabs to have on the road and a sticker to have it on the ice and go away for a little while.  Seems pretty close to double taxation since any LE can find out who the owner is from the current plate. Plus the spear shack that I might want to keep up over the weekend.  2 tags plus license. Combination sports license 2 trout stamps Waterfowl stamps Pheasant stamp  Turkey license (stamp now included) Deer license for all seasons   The bucket is getting heavy with all the drops in it.

      Really no different than using your boat.  $14,000 fish house and $14.33/year is going to kill you?? What gets me is at the lake we are at in the summer, mostly out of state people in the campground and all of their boats, never leave that lake and they are all licensed out of state and not in MN.  That is a chunk of money the state does not see.

      Great news to hear! Hopefully it will make enough tonight and hope it isn't going to get as warm as they say. Fingers crossed!

      Was hoping to come up with a 1/2 ton and a 16ft wheel house Dec. 1st.  Any thoughts if the ice will be think enough to go out of Hillmens?

      Took a drive around Lake Osakis earlier. It appears the cold and calm winds we had last night made a lot of ice. From what I could tell it appeared the lake was locked up except there was a small open area in Manthey's Bay that had a couple trumpeter swans swimming around and another small area in front of Holiday Resort that had some ducks swimming around. The rest was all ice, thin ice. Don't know if it will hold up over the next 5 days. High of 38 tomorrow, 46 and showers on Friday with high winds, 36 Saturday, 44 Sunday and 44 Monday. The lows over night aren't going to dip very low. If it was a few inches thick I wouldn't be to concerned, but as thin as it is, could be bad.

      Not by itself it won't but they raised the price on licenses for everything. Once you add it all up I'll bet you never got that big of a raise at your job. I paid for an ATV license since they first came out and we didn't get squat for it for over 20 years. What a joke, not to mention debacles like Mille Lacs Lake management. AAARRGGHHH!!  I gotta quit now before I pop a vein.
    • JerkinLips
      Thanks for the updates.  Think I will play it safe and wait until Thursday, November 30 to go out from McKinley Park.

      7" of good clear ice in the couple holes I drilled in Pike Bay this morning.

      not sure why its not showing I'm posting? Anyway walking out on the south shore gets you in deeper water quicker. Yes they do bite on red lake during the dark. I hardly ever go on the lake early ice unless Buddy Hillmen needs my help. Once I drive on the lake with blue thunder I will be on her just about everyday un  tell mid march if mother nature cooperates.
