      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 .

Hey All!
Does anybody ever attempt to ice fish here? I'm trying to remember; but I think Bodyman said he has gone out around here. Just curious if anyone has and if they had any luck. Thanks!

MM, The spot I used to fish was down from the Afton state park. It was a great spot and I wished I had more time to explore it when I lived in Hudson. If you do a search you can find the past posts with what info I have on it. If you want to have a spot to yourself, that would be the place. Not many like that in the Metro area. Pack light and take a shot at it. I'm sure if you put in the time down there it would be well worth it. Good luck.

Fishing is Life.

Thanks Bodyman!
I remember now what we were talking about last year and I checked out the old thread.....

I'm still real curious about right by Bluffs Park. There seems to be a decent looking point going out that drops to about 40' right by the swim beach.

If I get the chance I'm gonna check it out. If its any good it would be nice because it wouldn't be much of a hike. Up by Afton is a hike and a half! Later.

Hey Walleyefanatic!
Was there others around or evidence of people fishing there? It sure looks like a worthwhile spot on the map (which means nothing). I'm definetly gonna get down there in the next week or two. Thanks for the info and good Luck!

I've been down to that very spot you're talking about a few times in the past 2 weeks and I have yet to get bit. I've marked a few fish but nothing wants to bite. There's a pretty good size pressure ridge not far from where I drilled my holes which was a little freaky because I was standing on less than 5" of ice. There's a "road closed" sign at the top of the hill and it's pretty ice going down to the launch but it's no problem if you have 4 wheel drive. A county patrol followed me down to the launch on Sunday and he had no problem with me going around the sign.

I went down there a few times last year and fished the mn side just north of the beach with no luck.That same pressure ridge was out there last year and it was a pretty nasty one right over the point out from the park(kept me from fishing the point).I dont think them walleyes have been hitting to good out in that deep water yet but who know I havent been catching any eyes lately.I will be down there next month and am going over to the wi side to see if it changes anything.Let us know how it goes.

I didn't do a lot of exploring mainly because of the thickness of the ice and the pressure ridge but I think I was the first on to pop holes in this area. I tried a little bit of everything without even a nibble. Let me know if you're heading down there, wouldn't mind seeing and old familiar face and talking smart.

      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
