      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 .

Reply on its way.
Like I said, you'll have to get there EARLY. I'd even consider sleeping out there overnight, at least that way you can find your spot during daylight. Otherwise 2-3 am would be a good bet. Early yes, but if you want the best spot on a really good goose spot......

Hello All,

I know that this is very late notice but I just ran into a very bad situation. I have had a cut oats field locked up to use for over a month from a farmer in Waverly, MN. The farmer told me that his brother-in-law wanted to hunt with us but it would only be him. So I went to meet him last Sunday and he told me that he was bringing all these people along to hunt with him. He never told the farmer anything about this. He went on to tell me that if we wanted to hunt with them that we would need to hunt in his spot in the field that they wanted. Needless to say at this point I could see where this was going. After meeting with him I called the farmer who owned that land told him about this situation and he was upset and embarrassed that this had happened. To make a long story short. I have no field to hunt in and there was a family feud started. The worst part is that I had 4 of my buddies relying on me for the field and now we don't have to place to hunt. If anyone knows of a field that is not being used please let me know. I may even be willing to play out some cash if it comes down to that. Sorry again for the late notice.

Tom -

I would like to thank you again. It would be nice to get out there and hunt but one of the biggest issues is the about 90% of my decoys are shells that can't be used on the water. I am still hoping for a last minute prayer that we will be able to hunt some land.

So Tom...about this great spot? I'm looking for a good early goose spot, only own a few goose floaters and have struck out on getting on land. My dog and I are able to head out on Tuesdays since I have that day off. Weekends are full, but at least on Tues. there's no crowd. I'd love a tip if you're willing to share, my yellow lab would love to bring in some canada's (his 2nd year). I understand of you can't share your spots with all of us though. Thanks!

Within 1 hour of Wilmar you say, that narrows it down to about 1000 bodies of water!! I guess I'll have to check them all smile.gif
I'll be out on some slough and we'll find 'em (hopefully). If nothing else, great time to scout ducks!
Good luck, only 2 1/2 more days!

      I haven't ice fished this lake in about 4 years. It had a pretty large scale winter kill a few years back. I am sure it has since rebounded. Lakes like this typically come back pretty quickly following winter kill, especially with the mild winters we have had as of late. Mayhew used to be loaded with smaller perch, and had decent crappie action at times. I too would be curious to know how Mayhew is doing. Wish I could be more help to you.

      Be very cautious on lakes even further north of the Ogilvie area lakes. As of 3 days ago, there was still significant open water on Ripple, Hickory, Big Pine, Cedar, Bay, Farm Island, and numerous other lakes in the Mille Lacs, and Aitken area. Be very cautious, take your time, and test the ice every 10 yards or so, particularly if you get anywhere near anything that would be considered mid lake. Area resorts and bait shops are very reluctant to give advice that would be considered a green light to access even the small lakes. Be safe....

      East access..... only 3.5" - 4"  200 yards out.  .... don't know north acces as I saw enough to  stay off.

      Anyone on here been out on White Bear yet? I've seen a few people out off the Ramsey Beach area where the truck went through the other day but have not had a chance to venture out myself. Normally I hit the Belaire area early ice. Thanks!
    • walleyewalby
      wealthwood had1.5 last weekend, i saw no one out but 1 person on the whole west side last wsat afternoon. thi week the resorts on the north end and east are reporting decent ice. check with the resorts before you go out. id stay away from public accesses now and follow a staked road.
    • MrSchrute
      Have you fished out there before? Is it worth putting some time in on the ice? Thanks-
    • walleyewalby

    • dindunuffins
