      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 .

ALEX,,,NOT SURE HOW PERCH FISHING IS OVER THAT WAY. WE ALWAYS FISH OUT FRONT OF PINE.ONE THING WE'VE NOTICED IN TEN YEARS IS THAT WE CATCH ABOUT THE SAME AMOUNT OF PERCH AS WE DO POUT AND LIKE SOMEONE ELSE SAID IS THAT THERE ALWAYS 10 INCH OR BETTER,ALWAYS A NICE BONUS........GOOD LUCK AND HAVE FUN

I have gotten 3 perch this year in my 2 trips and they were footballs. Big and fat but there isn't that much consistence with them by pine. If I remember correct I have found decent numbers of perch in the past years around Gull rock and I usually always get some on 5 mile reef. Not enough for a limit but they are bonus fish on lake of the woods anyways

You might get a few here and there over on the eastside of the pond, but I'd have to say the best Perchin' is over on various spots on the westside of the lake.

Fisky is right there. The west side, and the Angle area are the best for perchin.

Fisky, know of anyone on the rock-piles yet? I'm heading out fishing for 5 days come Friday.

Geeee WT are'nt you always the first! Have'nt heard of a soul out there yet but with this weather I'm sure either you or the Lip Ripper will plant the first Christmas tree!

I caught wind of a decent bite near Springsteel in the late afternoons so I'm gonna give it a shake this afternoon. Guy told me he's been getting quite a few Jumbo's out there as well so I'm hoping to get that first batch of winter Perch fillets in the fryer tonite.

5 Days eh, sounds like Christmas break has soon arrived.

Merry Christmas to you and yours.

I would think the whole lake will be pretty tight by the weekend with these temps... Nothing like getting the first crack at the fish over the rocks.

Good luck this afternoon, hope you are fishing indoors.

Merry Christmas to you too. Hope Santa is good to ya.

Lip RIPPER!

The way things are going this year, I may be the last one out there. I got my so called name from Jig O Bit. He is the one who signed me up for all this punishment a few years back. Thanks Shane.

I do like that ice saw machine though. I bet High Life's finger would have looked better had he got it caught underneath that saw than slammed in my pickup door.

       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.

      @river rat316 is turning into a walleye guy Boo!  Just let me know when you want to fish for gills again.
    • crappie king 42
      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.
