      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 .

Great weather for ice! Reports

Well it's definetly great weather for making ice, it looks like we will be off to some good ice fishing over the holidays. I was able to get out and check a few lakes the last 2 days and it is really looking good for this upcoming holiday weekend. The 4 lakes I checked around the St. James area had between 4-8 inches of ice, this was just a random check within 100 yards of the boat landings so use caution. How's it looking in your area?

I haven't driven around the lake recently. Where is the 12" at? Must be by the Cremery? Maybe next week I'll get out.

Thanks

Putting my permanent out when I get off work today. There's a good 10" of ice on my Lime Lake close to shore. There's no need to get too far from shore on that lake.

Are there any reports from the narrows? How is the ice? And is anyone driving down to them. The ice is none to nice from Stony to the Island. I did however see some portables there this past Sunday.

Thanks

Fished the narrows yesterday from 3:30 to 8:30, ice is a solid 12" at least, we caught five eyes between 11" and 13", talked to the people who were out there and that was all that anyone was catching. Pink was a hot color and they have been very sensitive to light. As far as getting to the narrows, we walked from stony point, (long long walk), but people were driving onto the narrows from right off the point, I believe it is someone's property but I did see about 6 or 7 vehicles use what looked like a summer dock location. Another option is to come on at stony point and drive the shoreline all the way to the narrows, there are no vehicle tracks along that shoreline, only atv's and snowmobile's, but there are some good sized houses along it and while walking the ice seemed consistent, but from stony point to the island the ice is very choppy and undrivable, and geese are keeping the NE side of the island open.

      Let us know how it goes. I have a cabin on Linwood just off Whiteface. Be nice to find good spots in the area, seeing as for whatever reason I never fish Linwood...

      What a morning jigging on one of the best, fastest bites of the summer for me Tuesday morning of this week.  I had a guide trip but they cancelled that morning and I almost stayed on shore. Since I had the boat in the water and everything was set I went out by myself to check out a couple of spots.  I didnt get very far

       Anyone have any good news or been up there lately waz up  over the Fourth of July did OK nothing to brag about a few walleyes  or any other lakes around the area not looking for hotspots or nothing trying to catch a few panties
    • jj56342
      OK thank you thinking about going up first week in September

      Low water continues to be the issue on the Red. Below the dams still remains sketchy so use boats at your own risk.  The fishing remains stable, similar to last week in that the fish are spread out but in the holes in the middle of the river.  Short 15-20 minute sits on spots keeping the bait fresh looking for the active catfish.
        Bait is still heavy to frogs and frozen suckers with goldeyes working some but it seems that frog and sucker are the best.  As water cools down I suspect fresh sucker will come into play as well.

      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.
