      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 .

Red Lake river Ice report

Recommended Posts

Well I hate to say it but Ice fishing might not be an option this year. The river levels have gone up and stayed up all fall and into the winter. The ground moisture is way up there and the river is around 9'. Most years it is around 5-6 feet over the winter. Three feet of water means more curent, unstable banks and very thin ice all over the place.

We are scheduling our Ice Buster Daze for Jan 22 weekend. Man I hope we get some cold to make ice soon. Needless to say we wont be fishing in the dam this year. More than likely we will have to move the fishing tournament to central park area. With any luck, the races can still be across from the fire hall.

Well LOW will have to wait.. Selkirk has my number for the time being.. LOW is good fishing but tons of small fish.. just that chance to hook into several fish over 8# and up to the teens.. is enough to get me going back..

Chudmon.. maybe we can put a small pool under your rink and a few fish and we can hold the tounrament there.. LOL.. Rumor has it that napping in cabins cost much less up there in LOW vs renting a room LOL LOL LOL.. All it cost is your ridacule from your fishing buddies..

Get that house ready to go yet Chud? wont be long.

I went out on the river today. Anywhere from a foot of ice to two feet of ice.. 15 feet of water. Graphing fish all the time.. no takers though.. Fish were graphing from 8 feet down to the bottom steady.. Some real nice red bars on the LX3... Man I love that unit.. The battery life is awesome and the power is outstanding.

Cant wait to get that camera so I can see what all the activity is all about.

Heading out for xmas to the parents...

Happy Holidays to you all......

      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

      Sorry, don't remember TJ Hooker.  Besides I make it a practice to avoid hookers....  (rim shot)
