      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 .

Just checking to see if anyone fished the Selkirk area over the weekend. If so, how was the bite? We're planning to possibly make our way up shortly after Christmas.

Thanks and Happy Holidays!!

Nice fish Whiskers, what area were you fishing? I'm also curious as to what type of portable is shown in the pictures with that white interior. It almost looks to be insulated. Did you guys mark a lot of large fish? We didn't mark to many the previous weekend, not sure what was up. Last year in the same area we marked a ton. Anyway, looks like you had a great time up there, I'm thinking of heading up again come late ice if I can.

Ya it was a blast.. we went out from the Selkirk park area in 17 feet of water. That house is the bomb..

It's a Otter lodge with the Optional Insulated Thinsilight shell.. It was amaizing.. quiet, warm, easy to deal with and bright inside for less light needed after dark. This will be my next house as soon as I can save up for it.. We had three of us in there but could sit 4-6 easy. 7'x12'.. If I had the $$$ sitting around I would be bringing one home as we speak!!

We were marking good fish in the mornings and evenings.. starting around 8:00 am and again at 3:00 pm. The bite was sooooooo light.. we missed well more than 100 fish. A lot of "swing and a miss" action going on... LOL...

Rusty,

I have an Otter Lodge, If you're coming down this way for christmas give me a call. What do one of those insulators run for the Otter?

By the way where in the heck is Selkirk? Shoot me an email, I tried your cell earlier.

Sido5: Selkirk/Lockport is approx. 1 1/2 hrs north of Pembina ND. Including clearing Canada Customs it takes about 3 hrs (max) from Grand Forks. If your aren't aware Lockport is the #1 location for Channel Cats. The walleye aren't that bad either but only in the fall and winter months. Check the website www.catsonthered.net and you can see some of the pics of the fish caught up here.

Sid.. Hey I guess that cover for the otter is a $300. option.. well worth it as far as I can see...

That is the first time I have fished out of an otter.. quite impressed so far...

We are heading to Blackduck this evening till Sat. then heading down to Elbow Lake for the wifes folks then back home.. Have you been out fishing?

Hey folks I got a correction on my info on that fish house we used in Selkirk.. It is the otter village, http://www.otteroutdoors.com/icehouses/village.html , with a canvas craft cover. http://www.(Contact US Regarding This Word).com/canvascraft/

What a nice unit. I have been getting calls like crazy about how to find a unit like this. The cost is around $1000. for the complete setup from the sled from otter and the cover. When you think of it, when you summer fish look at the expense of your boat, motor, and all the gear.. $10,000 for the boat, gas & oil, roods and reels, life jackets, and all the gear just to hit the water. Now look at the winter costs… $1000. house, no gas, motor, life jackets and the rods and reels are much cheaper than summer rigs… Now compare how many times you got out with your boat compared to how many times you got out with your ice house. I guess that is a pretty good deal.

      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
