      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 like to get the NEW son out fishing. It is my going to be wifes son. I just gave him a new rod and real for christmas (little early) and I would like to get him into some crappies and or sunfish. He is 11 and wants me to make him my famous fish so we do need afew to keep. I have always fished frances early and done well on crappies in the evening and morning but from what I have heard they are small this year and I would also like to try Madison but do not know where to start! Any help would be great.

p.s. I fish alot and have every thing needed just need spots.

Thanks guys!!!

For panfish a safe bet would be on Francis.

If you know where Greenland Supper Club is/was drive past it and there is a parking area on the N/W corner of that bay.

It is a long walk to the grassy point that runs north to south so I would try fishing and working your way towards that area. Not too many people fish past the point but most settle pretty close to it or at least half way between the point and the access.

History has shown that that bay is a good place to start.

I have not been out yet this year but I would assume there will be plenty of people out there after sunnies and crappies.

GOOD luck and keep us posted. The forum has been pretty quiet but I am sure it will pick up this weekend.

Maybe you would care to share your recipe ???

MERRY CHRISTMAS !!!

Hey Klbowe,

Thanks for the info. I normally do start at Francis but from the few people I have talked to the Crappies are running on the small side but I think I will be going there anyways. Atleasted it will be something to catch. My fish batter consists of crackers that turn to powder in the blender. Add Cajun seasoning (to taste) and alittle garlic powder. Roll them in egg/milk batter then the cracker crumbs and add to hot oil! Really simple but he hated fish till I made it so he says it should be famous so I will take the glory! cool.gif I will let you know what happens. I hope it is not to windy out there so we can get out. It is great he is really exicted to go out for the first time!

Thanks for the info!!!!

Sounds like he is a pretty lucky guy.

Try not to let him get cold or too bored and he will be hooked !

Good luck to the two of you.

      Well the weather was pretty crappy but the fish were biting...Had to sort through but kept some for dinner. Caught a variety today, eyes,jumbos,crappie and a few smallies... rigging on or next to rocks worked best for us.

      I still hope it's double!  I just went over the map with my brother and talked about our options.  We have enough places to go for sure.  It's always fun planning and talking about past hunts. I put out the question to the other two guys about staying in camp vs the house.  We'll see what they decide.  I hauled our "cabin" home from Ely today so we should have plenty of room if they wanna camp.

      Did a few off season projects waiting for Ice. - Underwater camera, Fish Finder, Wheel house mods and the latest converting a 2 cycle Jiffy Lite 90 to an ION battery auger. Got the auger off Craiglist for $10, Drill for $15. Second stage of gear box is a 5 to 1 reduction so got the auger blade to turn at about 250 RPM which I feel is an ideal speed. Gear reduction also doubled the torque of the motor drive. Planning to use the Dewalt 20V ION battery as I already have charger and now converting one of the 1.5 AH batteries to either 9 or 12 AH.  If anyone needs a mid 80's Jiffy Lite 90 motor and clutch PM me. Has great compression, never tried to start it.  Price somewhere between free and a gift. If you did a project this summer, would you care to share them? DJ ION Auger HB.mp4  << Click link for video

      You may want to consider #3 ; Rapala Jiggin Raps, or drop shoting. They both have been putting some nice size suspended slabs topside under some breezy conditions as of late. Fishing sure was downright epic the last week for all species. To bad it looks like "global warmering" is coming to an end for this year, was awesome while it lasted...... Those are some decent perch panman54. LOL!

      Pretty remote and flat back there. I haven't been on that exact shoreline but I bet you can pull a boat up there quite easily.

      I didnt hear how the second day went yet.  The long term average is 8% success up to 10% during the 2 deer era.  so 5.7% isnt bad for day 1.   Cooler weather will hopefully help us second weekenders. I havent seen much for rubs or scrapes here yet, should be starting any day.
