      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 .

Hit Clearwater this afternoon. No eyes unfortunately, but a limit of 10" craps in 3 hours. Couple of nice schools hung around suspended up 8-12 feet in 35 fow. Nothing on the bottom. Hot bite at 5:45pm. Small jigs/small minnows. Plain hook also did the trick.

5 eyes and 3 northerns on Cedar on Friday and Saturday. 9 northern on Ida on Saturday morning, all about the size of a pan size walleye. Nothing on Sunday except small perch.

Was out on Cedar yesterday afternoon/evening on the north end and didn't catch a thing except for a slight buzz. Almost had the Clam catch fire when my lantern was acting up on me. It must have got really cold in the garage and the gas dial wouldn't work right. First it wouldn't put out any gas and then it after I got it lit it started burning really hot and some flames were coming out of the top and it stunk really bad. Then I went to shut it off and then it wouldn't shut off. If somebody would have seen me they would've got a laught out of it, because I know I would've. Seeing some guy fly out of the his Clam with a flaming lantern in one hand and a beer in the other trying not to tip either of them and not to catch fire to the canvas on the way out. I got a laugh out of it at least if anyone else didn't have the pleasure to see it.
I guess it's crappie time for now for a while.

Yeah that was me in the blue Clam with a Grey Tahoe. I pulled in around 3:30 and the "flash" you saw should've been around 5:30 or so. Were you driving the white silverado or the ford with the green eskimo? I had my door set up facing the other way (facing my truck), so you couldn't have had the pleasure of seeing me juggling the flaming lantern and a beer while trying to get out of the zippered doorway, but you definitely could've seen the "flash of light" after I got out of the house if you were over to the East of me more towards the park. Is this your normal spot that you hammer 'em at Bobberboy?

MG-Fishn' were you out in front of the park? around 3:30? I thought I seen a flash over in that direction last evening.

No actually it's a Coleman lantern. It's never done that before so I'm not sure if it was just really cold or what. If the same problem occurs again I'll have to take a look at it a little closer so we don't burn the Clam down to the ice.

I had the Black Ford. That area around the bar had been very good to me the last couple weeks. My son turned me on to Cedar and suggested that I try that area. As I said I didn't do for #$%& on Sunday but had good fishing there 5 out of 7 times.

I have never fished that area before Sunday but it looked like a prime spot on the map and decided to go for it. Usually when I'm up that way I hit either Sugar or Millstone. I thought I'd try somewhere else for the last day of the season. That cold front that came through last weekend had to have shut them down. Take care Bobberboy and I'm sure I'll see you out there again. If you smell the canvas on the Clam melting next time, that means I probably had some more lantern problems. Come one over with a bucket of water!

MG-Fishin,
How did you do on Sugar? I was out on those mid-lake humps 2 or 3 time and never managed anything more than a few small perch. I also fished about a 1/4 mile from the North landing on the north shore in the first little bay and never seen a thing.

      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!

      There's preliminary testing then if flagged it gets shipped to a lab I believe in CO to verify the results.

      10 day forecast doesn't show anything with low temps below 15 degrees.  It might make ice but it wont be making it necessarily fast.

      Thanksgiving would be nice...but first week of December still works!   Rogers on Red is already allowing wheelers and sleds...no side by sides yet.

      A 30-foot-tall white spruce, selected as the state’s official Christmas tree, was cut down today in the General C.C. Andrews State Forest, near Willow River.  The tree will be set up at the governor’s residence, 1006 Summit Ave., St. Paul, around 9 a.m., Monday, Nov. 20. The tree will be lit Monday, Nov. 27. DNR staff and the Conservation Corps of Minnesota cut the tree on the Friday before Thanksgiving each year from one of 59 state forests. However, the search for just the right tree begins months before. DNR foresters keep an eye out for a tall tree that’s nicely shaped and well filled out. It also needs to be in a location where it will not be damaged when dropped and then easily pulled out and loaded onto a trailer. Minnesota’s state forests provide clean air and water, recreational opportunities, wildlife habitat, timber and special forest products. This year, small businesses are making 150,000 wreaths with balsam boughs harvested from state forest lands. The estimated annual sales for Minnesota companies producing holiday wreaths exceed $23 million and Minnesota’s public lands support a large share of this economic activity. Each holiday season, half a million Christmas trees are harvested from private tree farms in Minnesota, contributing about $30 million to the state’s economy. For each tree harvested, one to three trees are planted. Real Christmas trees store carbon during their lifespan. They can be chipped for mulch when the season is over, making them an environmentally friendly choice.
      More information and details on viewing the tree is on the state Christmas tree page. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
