      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 .

You must of got the job because of the way you handled Westy. See , if I didn't light you up, you would have not had the opportunity to mediate the crisis. Congrats big man and good luck. I fully expect that you will be kicking me off the site when the jickies start pounding my metro ice fishing lakes. WEST

Thanks to everyone on here! I'm sorry that I didn't respond earlier...I actually wasn't fishing, but I was doing the next best thing: I was down in Springfield, MO for the holiday weekend and hit up Bass Pro Shop pretty much all day on Saturday! That place is awesome!

Thanks again everyone.

EBass - we are on for Saturday for sure.

BM, Are moderators allowed to fish with Non-moderators? tongue.gif I guess I could just throw your shirt to you as I pass you? wink.gif

Where are you and EBASS fishing? Maybe I'll see you out there.

HT - I'm not sure the exact launch just yet but it's somewhere on the upper stretch (otsego/monti). We haven't gotten much farther than that. When/where are you going to be out on Saturday? Side-note: I checked out jets like yours at BPS in Springfield this weekend! Maybe by next spring!

Maybe we should do a Moderators vs. Non-Moderators this Saturday LOL smile.gif I should do ok just as long as BigLake doesn't steal my fish...oh wait, BLB is a non-mod and would be in your boat grin.gif LOL... you can have'em, just be prepared to watch him pull in the fish you call up on the buzzers - LOL! grin.gif BLB - bring your own TP too smile.gif Totally just kidding - BLB you rock!

Eyeguy it looks like you've got the hang of the smilies wink.gif.

Congrats BigMike,
But I would watch out for that Ebass fella. He has a habit of pulling 20+" bass out of toilets. You kids go and have fun. You probably already know this but, I think the fall is the best season for topwater prop baits. "Heddon Torpedos in frog green is my favorite"

Again Congrats

Shoot - I knew there was something fishy about it... if only I had the $$$.

HT - maybe you could tow EB & I up river smile.gif LOL. I think we are going to try and the same float trip as the one we did in your boat for the gathering - just launch out of montissippi instead (cause of EB's motor - just a couple sections to slowly navigate vs. a whole stretch!). Are you going to be fishing with anyone on Sat?

I think BLB is going with me. Are you parking a vehicle at Kadler?

The river is up about a foot from last weekend, if you can believe that. That is the first rise I've seen all year. I guess the lakes are getting full and finally letting the river have some of the rain.

HT - you've got mail.

Yes! the water is up... That will really help Ebass & I navigate a little easier on Saturday.

Hopefully it will come down just a tad though before Saturday... higher water makes for a tough & scattered bite sometimes. How was the water clarity?

It looks like a BM/EB vs HT/BLB tourney! The early morning bite was so bad last week, we're planning to meet at Montissippi at 7am. That will give you guys time to meet at Kadler and drive up the Monti. Sound good to you?

Water clarity was dingy, but not too bad.

It looks like it's the "FM Moderators" vs. "
Non-Moderators".

The river rules 3.2.28 clearly state that FM Pro-staff automatically win. And as EB said in his email, 3.2.29 clearly states that all big fish caught by non-moderators are subject to being photographed with either EB & BM one holding the fish (no one disputes a photo smile.gif) No contest... grin.gif.

We'll see you guys down there. EB, we've got to figure out a way to get a tow up river from HT's jet boat! LOL.

      Ice out as far as I could see today, little wind and a cool night tonight. Some wind forecast tomorrow night. It should be fine though. Here is the report   20171119_153600.mp4
    • Fishing Frenzy
      Any ice starting to form again?
    • Dirtyfisheyes
      By the look of the forecast, single digit lows at night and no snow. Should it be safe to say that the first of December would be safe for snow machines? Itching to make the trip. Also any recommendations for lodging would be helpful

      Yesterday Finn and I went hunting for ducks and I should have had 4 mallards and pair of woodies.i hit one woodie and it hit the water as Finn went to get it jumped up and flew away. Next weekend I will try again.

      Second week of December is looking good for southern Minnesota, if the current long range forecasts are close to accurate. Maybe even the first week of the month with a little luck.

      I figured I would start up a new thread for us to use for the winter now that things are starting to set up and guys may be starting to creep out on the bays and smaller water.   I did some more poking around on Pike Bay this morning and I don't have anything much new to report. We've got less than an inch of fluffy snow on the ice and things healed up after the warm front this week. I worked my way from shore out into the middle of the bay and ice was relatively uniform between 5.25 and 5.5 inches of nice clear ice. Earlier this week I checked all landings on the Tower end and everything was iced up except for open water way out in Big Bay appearing to mostly be all West of Birch/Ely islands. Not sure if all the recent strong winds from North and South have changed that status though. I'm still sticking with my original guess of December 2 for my first trip off McKinley on 5 inches.   Good luck this winter to all and Be Safe!

      extended forecasts look good up north. We won't have fish-able ice in the metro until at least the 2nd weed in December assuming no dramatic temp changes. The big Expo is Dec1-3 but temps look promising ~1.5hrs north. I wonder if the ability to go fishing might impact the amount of traffic at the show!
