      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 .

I would say it will be ok this coming weekend. It was 14 below Sunday morning up there. If that doesn't make ice I don't know what would grin.gif

The forecast is for bitter cold weather all week this week so I'm guessing you should be fine, even with a four wheeler for next weekend. I was on Woman Lake last weekend and there was about 4-6 inches of ice on Broadwater Bay. I wasn't on the main lake but I think it would have been a little iffy since it freezes over later than Broadwater. With all this cold weather, I would bet the ice would be as thick, or thicker there this upcoming weekend as it was on Broadwater last weekend.

By the way... I'll be up there this weekend too for Christmas but I'm not sure if I'll be fishing.

Well it should be fine now after the last few nights. I don't think I'll even need the wheeler as we fish right in front of the cabin. Thanks for the info.

I was out on the east side of the main lake yesterday. My family lives in the harbor on the east side - north if Pikie Point, and south of the Gold Coast area.

Not nearly as much ice as I expected with the subzero temps lately, I went out with an ATV and my Otter, first hole I drilled was only about 20 yards from shore, 7 inches of ice - and this area has been iced over for a couple of weeks now.

There are patches of snow, and patches of ice all over the lake. Where I was, the ice patches had 8-9 inches of ice, the snow patches had 6-7 inches.

As of tuesday (or maybe it was thursday) of last week there was a strip if open water that extended north to south on the east side of the island. You can kind of see where it was as it is not snow covered. Although with the cold weather, and lack of snow cover I would not be surprised if there was over 6 inches of ice there as well - but I am not going to find out yet...

It has been exteremely cold up here, this morning (Thursday the 23rd)when I got up it was 19 below zero, yesterday the high was around 5 below.

I fished for a few hours near the gold coast, caught one pike and one 12 inch walleye, and a perch. Also got bitten off by anther pike.

On the way back in last night I broke through some slush and sprayed water all over the place, made my heart skip a beat... I am not much of an early ice guy, I prefer a good solid 12 inches of ice below my feet. Actually, 6 inches is the thinnest ice I have ever fished on...

Today I hope to venture over to broadwater bay, but that is a long haul from where my family lives over on the east side of the main lake.

      I used to have many fields but some guides came in and pay for the fields. I am down to 3 farms but they don't have any small grains this year. So I am going to take the early season off. As I know the geese will use some ponds to rest and I have access to them so I will wait until the regular season to pick off a few geese.

      get a guide for a day

      That's what I planned on doing while I bow hunted but wasn't sure since I got one in spring if I could get another. Thanks

      I was marking various things, but I didn't note a correlation between marking something and catching the walleye.  Also was catching smallies on the same reefs, although maybe at a little different depth.   In fact I was surprised when the walleye hit.  Likewise the other one the next evening.

      Eden prairie purgatory lake is full of carp. You can see them from the dock or the bridge.

          Orvis has some awesome tutorials on their web sites. They teach at whatever level you are in flyfishing. I've gone there many times. They've also got an awesome app with fishing reports including wwater conditions, fly selection and hw to fish it.       Check them out and good fishing.

      I didn't fish any walleye this weekend- only bass. I would fish Friday and Saturday mornings from 530-830 and caught half a dozen largies in the 3-4lb range on a spinner bait. I just got my Garmin fish finder with sideview which will hopefully help me better locate the walleyes. Del, were you marking fish as you'd go over them?

      Latest Landing gossip...... First hearing in trial was july 25th.   Judge took motions under advisement. In the mean time, since none of the locals would work there, they imported a bunch of people on H2b visas as seasonal workers and put them up in a little house in Cook.  Charging them $285 per month.  Like 20 people in the house.   Now many have quit and found other jobs, and some also found other places to live.   They have to hang on since they need to wait until their scheduled airplane tickets.. which they also had to pay for.   That's the news from the Laundromat.... Believe it or so what.
