      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 .

TRZ, I think I know which shack is yours.Is it kind of dark pink in color?If it is I remember thinking it was odd to see that piece of plywood hanging crooked that I think covers the window or something.I was driving by like I always do but not close enough to see that it was busted into.Anyway,I hate to see you pack it in with so much ice fishing left.I have some tip-ups and jig poles that I don't use that you could use.I could meet you down there at a certain time if I'm able to.Let me know.Later.

TRZ, I might just stop by sometime if I do see a car.That color looks good.It's not real pink but it's the only way I could describe it so you would know I was talking about yours.Did you move the shack towards shore a ways recently?When we were still walking on the ice,my daughter and I fished south of your shack but I thought it was out farther then.Anyway,Good Luck Fishing down there and if I'm coming off the ice some night and see somebody fooling around over at the shack and something doesn't look right,I'll definitely pay them a "friendly" visit!Keep in touch.

we moved the shack a couple times, in and out. there is a great structure closer to shore but it dosen't seem to hold all that many fish. my buddy was at the open water yesterday and did well on cats and sturgeon. i might be out this weekend at my shack, stop by.

Sounds good.Yeah,I was moving in to that drop-off earlier in the year towards evening and did catch some walleyes but all too small.Plus,I think with all the vehicle traffic going north,they're probably spooked out of there.Good luck this weekend and if someone is there maybe I'll swing on by.Take it easy.

Friday evening and saturday i'll probably hit the open water. if you see a very ratty looking portable with crap stuck to it i'll be in there. i always have a tip up out each door. i talked to a guy who had his shack in the bayport side colony and he has been skunked for 2 weeks, looks like the bite has really slowed.

I went tonight after work from about 5 pm to 7:45 pm and also got skunked except for a nasty looking mud puppie.It wasn't one of my best spots but one I wanted to try.Didn't even see many fish on the flasher.I might try by the power plant also.Or possibly south of the interstate bridge.I've seen a few shacks out there on my way home from work this week.Good Luck if I don't meet up with you.

      Thanks for the update cigarguy- were you lindy rigging?
    • CigarGuy
      Neighbor and I went out in Wakemup for a couple hours tonight and got a 18" and 19" and had a nice one come unbutton on the way in....Leaches and crawlers.  That's good for me!  20 - 34' off a break line.  Del, working on the last flight of the steps-was looking for you to stop by and help!

      I used lead core on Friday and had a ball catching walleyes of all sizes.  I started in the morning and stayed out until I just got tired in the afternoon.  I probably pulled in as many as 20 or so.  My formula was:  90 feet of line, 19-24 ft of water, #5 rattling split deep shad rap.  Silver color.  I kept it right at 2mph.  I also did much better when I pumped the rod in a regular cadence.  Keeping it in the rod holder didn't produce near the fish.

      Ace, I hope you enjoy your retirement.  I hired you one time and my boy and I had a good time.  I appreciate the hard work you did on putting us on fish.  Good Luck and maybe "Little Ace" can continue the family business some day!   Michael Theis

      These are legal aliens.  Glad you enjoyed your lunch.

      Trolling or casting jigs and spinners(silver or gold are best for pike IMO) near the weeds, in bays, etc, cranks, and top water buzz baits around weedy areas are how I get most of my pike. Use a leader. Orange jig heads with a sparkly yellow twister tail and a jumbo leech gets me more pike than any other method. Your mileage may vary.

      I had lunch there a couple of days ago. Great service and good food! I did not see any illegal type aliens there at that time!  Cliff
