      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 .

Quick report from todays outing.

On the ice(which is at 5 ")from 12:30-4:30 today. We were the first ones out on the ice there because there was no others holes cut anywhere. We fished about 50 feet straight out from the point. We were in 13' of water and visibilty was at least three feet. The Vex showed almost everything at about 11-12 feet. We used waxies on Marmooska, spring bobbers with a tear drop and and Ice Buster bobbers with a Genz grub and waxies. Waxies all day long. Total fish--- 42 sunnies 2 crappies and 2 bass. Biggest fish of the day was a nine and quarter inch crappie. Three guys in a 4600 Clam, pretty crowded. Great to be back!!!

Hi all,

been away for awhile as have been trying to invite some venison "home for dinner". One more outing to IA for old-timey blackpowder hunt but cold snap has me interested in some hardwater solitude.

Dan, which pit are you fishing? nearest Mayo parking lot? If not, I remember CT talking about the 2nd pit being preferable to fish. So would appreciate knowing the best way in there. I have Mayo parking priveledges, so park at the lot and pull across the west end of the S. pit to the next pit? Is there areas to watch out for? (seem to remember CT mentioning springs somewhere)

Thanks in advance for the info

Hi Tom,

We came in from the north east corner. Come in from the bottom of seventh street. There is a poured rock ramp down there. Easy access. Man I think Mayo One must of took off and landed at least ten times today.

Stillhunter,

It's the pit farthest to the north. Although if you have Mayo parking priviledge you can still get out from there. Depending on where you come in at you should go along the edge of one across the south one. There is a feeder creek that dumps into it by that area.

Look for the finger or penninsula there can't miss it.

Thanks Dan,

Have always fished the south one, since was unsure if the other was legal. have had enough excitement to keep going back although it seems as if some of the fish were a bit stunted

       Ice is scary on blue. I was out last weekend fishing next to open water north end is kinda sketchy still my buddy has been there every day this week. Still cant get close to the points only 1 inch there. Thicker by north end but its all older ice from the first freeze lots of cracks. The bay to the east towards the points and whole south end were wide open last sunday. Had 4 inches right next to it we fished as close to the point as we could get. We were 40-50 ft from open water and we got one eye. But ive never been so scared on ice before it was cracking very badly very loud and could feel the ice shifting. The walk back to access in the dark had my heart pounding and i didnt tjink we would make it back without one uf us goin through but we did make it.

      I'm 4-5 hours South, but my cousin texted me yesterday and said guys are walking out from the North side of French.  He said there's still open water on the South side though.

      @river rat316 is turning into a walleye guy Boo!  Just let me know when you want to fish for gills again.

      Moose is right. We fish the same area and all those lakes were sketchy with old sheets of ice and lots of open/skim ice. I have not been out this week but vetween my brother and friends i have heard the ice is all getting stronger. Idk if ive ever seen lakes freeze like this. Plus snow everyday makes it scary when u cant see the ice. No mater what dont go alone and just because u see people out there dont mean the ice is good. Lots of circumstanes this year where u have 6 inches in one spot and 5 feet away there is one inch

      Out of the north west part of the lake yesterday, found anywhere from 5-8 inches of ice.  Close to a few pressure ridges there was less than 3 inches.  There are a lot of patches of rough ice and pressure ridges so be careful.  Saw several places where spearer's were set up where they pushed the ice block under the ice and did not mark their holes, please people be cautions.

      Here's the scoop, Buddy Hillmen is now allowing 1/2 ton trucks with single axle wheel houses.. Also any size wheel house pulled by wheeler or side by side. Drive slow there's a bridge plate about a mile out. Do not try and cross berm to the south of road. I have all ready seen a couple tracks where they did not make it through. be safe use commom sense and enjoy such a grand lake. On a side note. Last weekend a small fish house was set up about 200 yards from me. Sunday I was driving by and noticed a plastic bag so I stopped to pick it up. It was pushed down into the augured hole and turned out to be a bag of poop. From now on I will be taking random pics of wheel houses and if I find that kind of crap again I will be reporting to dnr and expect a possible ticket in the mail.
