      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 .

We had one brave soul venture out yesterday in the subzero temperatures (double digits below zero) in search of crappies. He went out for a few hours in the late morning and early afternoon, venturing out of the southshore approximately 1.5 miles to 13/14' depths. Unfortunately for him the bite was very slow but said he kept very active tyring to keep the holes unthawed (even had two heaters running) and the minnow bucket unthawed. The temps are what kept him from fishing out there into the late afternoon and the early evening like he wanted (which is when the bite has been better), but figured he'd wait until next trip to do the late afternoon/evening fishing. He did check with the access owner before heading out and was given the ok to drive his vehicle out.

The add on of "lounge girl" was done by our illustrious FM leader, Rick, during one of his "awake" moments, when he thought he was being clever. Rick also has a nickname, but his didn't last on the forum for more than a day.

As for the fishing, there's been some folks who have been picking up a few crappies in the daylight hours and into the late afternoon out of the southshore accesses, fishing in the 13-14' depths; and for those heading out of the eastside traveling out to those same depths they've been finding a pretty decent late afternoon evening bite fishing about 1' off the bottom. The temps have been discouraging to do much moving around and there haven't been hoards of folks up here this past week. But now that Christmas is over and the temps are on a slight warming trend we have more folks heading up this week to try to get into the slabs.

Yes,

Pro Lounge girl refers to Drakes ability to power nap in the mornings while everyone else is working away. Drake came up with a moniker for me - "Lazy Boy" in retaliation even though I was up later than Drake and up hours before she was (that was the origin of Lounge girl anyway). Drake needs her beauty sleep don't ya know.

As you can see her nickname stuck for good reason. She continues on needing here beauty sleep on most days prefering to make her husband get up and do all the hard work through the late mornings.

Fire up the GPS, I'm gonna finally spill the beans. (since Jigglestick just won't be precise enough with the location of the "2.25 mile honey hole".

OKAY here's the scoop; I've heard tell that anywhere west of 94*43' west longitude is a crappie slamfest.

Wall eyell be,

That sure narrows it down!!! I'll run right out there.! Careful, you may get some $#!+ for giving away too many details. LOL. I would bet it is also East of the Res. border. Speaking of which, does anyone know the Longitude of the border?

Bhead

The longitude I gave is about 20 seconds east of the Res border. So just to give it a little margin for safety, I wouldn't go West of 94 degrees 43 minutes. That would give you a 50 to 60 foot cushion for GPS error and such.

      The DSL service is great since they ran the fiber down 24 a few years ago.   I was presuming that the poster didn't have that option if they were considering satellite.     AccessMN is another possibility if they are still around.

      OK I will post a report just on the offhand chance that someone else still reads these things.  Fished at Birchdale afternoon of Saturday 10/21 and morning of 10/22.  Fishing was good Saturday for keeper sized fish, nothing big but caught 29 fish in 6 hours,  mostly nice keepers 14 to 19 inches long and not too many dinks.  Sunday morning fishing was slow and then it got super windy so pulled the plug early and went home.  Jigging in shallower spots, could not troll crankbait because of debris on line.  Others had mixed success.  Shiners were around.

      10/22/17     Hunted water in central MN from a boat blind both days. Despite gusty south winds one day and temps not exactly October-like, new ducks were around that moved in during a cold, clear night with a west wind during the week. Calendar migrators from the Dakotas and southern Canada. Saw eleven species and harvested ten--typical late October mixed bag. A mixed, medium-sized decoy spread with a crosswind on a point with the sun behind us was the ticket. An Avery Quick Set blind with fast grass mats and two Lucky Duck HD spinners rounded out the set-up. Subtle mallard quacks, chuckles, and drake whistles mixed with goose clucks, pintail and wigeon whistles locked up birds nice and close--no loud contest calling. Cold weather and West and NW winds this week should get a bunch of new birds in--probably a mixed bag of species still. We saw or heard eight flocks of specklebellies migrating on Sunday. Look for a show about one of these days of hunting on my You Tube channel (Fishing and Hunting the North Country) by later in the week.  Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      I pulled my boat for the winter today. Sure hated to have to do that, but have tons of stuff to do to get ready for the fall, winter stuff! Cliff

      Good day!  Keep the reports coming! We’re islanders and had to pull out a week ago. On my last day out by myself I boated a thick 28” walleye to close my season. We brought filets Home so my old fisherman, 95 year old dad could enjoy a good fry,  I still enjoy reading about the lake so keep reporting. Thanks, Dick

      The wife and I were up to L O W  for whole week. Great weather, good fishing and fun time. Was able to fish 7 days split up between Morris point, Long point and the river. For me Long point was the better bite. May have seen a couple members of outdoors Mn on Tuesday out of LP. Let me know if I'm right. Also met member from Wisc. at Morris point( real good guy) Anyway didn't seem to matter much what color jig caught them on every color with frozen shiner. Some days were better then others but always caught fish. Ate several meals of fish and brought fish home. Also caught a 14 in perch that I brought into taxidermist. Plan on going back at least one more time this fall . ( Too good not to).
