      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 .

Walleye Wacker

We are coming up on 1/2-1/5 staying at Schuster's for the 1st time. We always have gone with Sportsman's in the past but have not had much luck through the ice the last few trips with them.

Anyone have any luck with them in the past?

For sure! We went out of Shusters 2 years ago, and we would get a mixed bad , Saugets Eyes, Pout and Tulibees. We limited out each day we were there, adding a few monster perch to the mix. Mostly using horizontal red and green glow on the dead stick, and buckshot and AE on the Jig stick.

Have FUN!!

Walleye Wacker,

We are going to be going out of Sportsmen's this year for the first time. Have gone with another outfit the last couple years but couldn't get in with them this year because they were full. We will be staying in a sleeper in early January. Did you stay in a sleeper or day shack and cabin? Please let me know what you thought of the accomodations and fishing. How many people did you have in your group? I know you can't or shouldn't give any bad reports but just wondering what you thought and how you did fishing. From what I've heard in the past they are really good and when talking to them on the phone they sound really knowledgable and willing to help keep you on fish.

Any comments will be appreciated.

Plev,

We usually go w/ 4 guys and in the past had great luck with Sportsman's. The last couple of trips we didn't do so well and thought we would give another resort a try. Sportsman's guides and accomodations were alway great. Food was good too!

This is my first post but i have been an avid reader on this site. This year will be the 5 year my buddies and I have come up to LOTW. We have stayed at Schusters 4 out of the 5 years and have had very good experiences there. We tried out Wigwam one year and when it came down to it Schusters was a much better experience all around. We have always caught a decent amount of fish. This year there are 8 of us coming up on the 5th through the 9th. Good luck!

Walleye Wacker I am also staying with the same group as rafter and we he been going to Schusters on this same trip for 8 years. Even if the fishing isn't great the people at Schusters always make it enjoyable and try to find the fish for you. Also watch out for Rafter he likes to disappear when it's his turn to buy a round at the lodge.

You're just jealous because I can shake dice better than you! grin.gif I probably just jinxed myself and will be buying all nite. I'll give SP 139 the message that you & Doug will be leaving early - I think he was planning on meeting you in Mankato. How early are you leaving? Maybe I'll go with. Later.

Hey Rafter... or should I say CircleJ? You should come with us to Red on Monday. Poupy staying on my couch Sunday Night. We'll wait until 8 or so if you can make it.

Poupy is a little slow today. Too many B Lemons last night. Anyway... second Poupy's comments regarding Schuster's. Always first class...

CU Guys on Monday @ Schuster's w/Bucket O' Crappies!

Walleye Wacker,

It was nice to meet you. Our group (15) ended up with enough fish for two meals and we brought some home so we can't complain. Largest walleye was 18". Caught some perch, quite a few pout, and some tulibees.

      Be looking at these two general areas. Thanks for heads up on south end.
    • NELS-BELLS
      My son and I fished from 8 - 4 yesterday out of Beacon Harbor.  It was super windy so we couldn't be as mobile.  We caught 6 eyes, all under 17", in about 8' of water and another 10 after we moved out to 11'. Also a few big Perch.  Only 2 fish on dead stick and the rest jigging.  Gold or pink seemed to work the best.  Fun day! Nels

      OK thanks.  I haven’t had an issue yet.  I just got low on powder and needed primers so I decided to try the Blackhorn 209 now.  I remembered reading this post. At the C store there were plenty of Triple 7 and Remington 209 primers in the ML supplies @ 9-10 bucks/100.  The shotgun primers were running running low though and I grabbed the last 100 pack.  They’re only 4 bucks/100.  I figured it would be a cheap experiment if nothing else.

      Not a hundred percent on the age but it's a Frabill Excursion and both are in brand new condition. Not to worried about the weight of it it won't be more than a handful of times of pulling it out before driving my truck out with it. The price difference between the two is what I was looking at.
    • FirstIce
      Does anyone have any input on the kdrill on a gas auger? I have seen a few people use this setup. Do you need a special adapter to use it?
    • Wanderer
      Are they both the same age?  Equal condition?  Do you hand drag or machine pull?  Weight will matter a lot. You really have to consider how you plan to use the house.  Happiness with the houses performance is the biggest key.   Otherwise it appears to be a trade from a $480 house to a $700 house based on new house prices if I looked at the right Frabil.
    • icepike 1
      It's not thermal. How's frabill's customer service in case you break a poll or something?
    • going4it
      The only problem I had with my frabill was its weight. It was a tank to pull and tough to put in the bed of the truck.

      Anyone else think the number of people ice fishing in the last 5 years has grown greatly in our area? To me it has and to me it seems alot harder now to find a spot of your own, or spots that have been pasted down on a lake that there arnt 5 to 50 people trying to fish! Gps doesn't help the cause either, I wonder what the future of ice fishing and the fish/ crappie population is going to look like in the next 5 to 10 years. Last year kinda shocked me to by the number of people out partying out on cedar and even the sound of subs going by in cars on the ice.. like really??! Could see the look of what is wrong with people from dads and familys out with their kids. Sorry about the rant
    • Bass Thumb
      I found exactly the same thing today. It was a steady 5" walking to the fishing spot. 3" of ice on the spot, if that. Cracks everywhere. Water pushing out of holes I had drilled. Not good.
