      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 .

What: Metro Get Together.

When: January 15th.

Where: White Bear Lake.

Time: 10.00am

Parking: Ramsey Beach on White bear Lake.

I wanted to start a "NEW" thread for the WBL get together. I know some of you posted you were going or maybe interested in participating in it. I went to my first Metro Get Together two years ago at Phalen Lake and had a blast. I continue to fish with many of the folks I met there.

Please respond if you are going to go or if you have any questions.

Flatter me with a maybe. grin.gif

One last thing. Does anybody want to pre-fish WBL before the event?...if so let me know please.

Peace,

SmellyJelly

I will be there for sure, and wouldn't mind pre-fishing. I spent a fair amount of time there this summer but have never been on the hard water there. I'm off all next week if any of that will work.

Ramsey beach is the one up in the North/West corner, right?

Mr. Jelly sir,

I'll likely be there. I'd be up for any pre-fishing as well, seeing as how the thin ice up until now means I've saved a lot of fishing hours up for use in January.

Hmm...

I'm off both Monday and Tuesday of this week (tommorow and tuesday)

I have a 2 man clam-like shelter (think its frabill- haven't opened it. Got it from my uncle. But its nice and small and very easy to pull.) and a Strikemaster 2hp 8" assuming I can get it to fire up (those who were there at the Minnetonka event prally remeber the problems I had with it last year wink.gif ). I do NOT have a heater or a lantern however (though I may get one soon)

I'm planning on going out somewheres tommorow, and wasn't sure where. I'm also up for Tuesday as well if thats better. Get a meeting time and date- we might as well start off the Ramsey county beach as well. I don't know what spots are in walking distance as I've only ice-fished White bear a couple of times.

Should work. Set a time. If you want my cell phone # and such- send me an e-mail at gamemaster@mngamer.com

I'll keep my equipment, house etc on reserve in the case we get more people who show up if they don't have one, but I won't bring it unless we do. I'll be checking this thread, if anyone wants to meet up and borrow it for the day- lemme know.

I will try to make it on Tuesday as well. I have to check with the sitter first. I'll check back here for a time to meet. I have never fished the north side of the lake, always stayed south of the rock bar so I am looking forward to it.

I do really well on White Bear in the spring but It’s been a bit of a mystery to me during hard water. I’ve fished the areas in front of the VFW, Bellaire, and Ramsey beach and never have had much luck.

Looking forward to meeting some of you guys.

Hey Smelly,

Long time since I ran into you on Phalen. I'm going out with my brother Tuesday and was thinking about giving WBL a shot. We won't hit the ice until noon or so, but I would like to say hello. What are you fishing out of? I'll be in a Frabill Ranger 2-man.

Ack! Yeah.. I was away from the computer for most of the day. Got out on a local pond in the Morning (and iced a 17" bass out of it O.O) and then was out of the house for most of the day seeing a movie and other things.

This being said its 2am- I am not going to be able to make it there by 8. The Noon meet time I should be able to make, however.

Smelly- I did get your cell #. I will give you a call when I get to the Ramesy County beach tommorow. Should be around 12ish. I will also check this tommorow morning as well for updates. Should I still plan on just bringing the rods? Or do you want the shack as well?

Fleeced,

Long time no see. I will be in a green otter and I will be wearing black bibs and red jacket. Look for a small group of us...or call my cell phone if you like.

Hope to see you out there.

Any newbies welcome to tag along? Fairly new to the forum, and to icefishing. It would be great to put a face to some of the people that have been dropping pointers. I've got all my basic gear, no power auger just a hand auger, but it works. Always looking for someone to fish with and WBL is my old neighborhood!

spatciccp, smellyjelly's probably on the lake already, but if you want to show up, the more the merrier. I for one only have met one of the people who'll be on WBL today.

I'll be at the Ramsey beach around noon as well, sounds like there will be a few people showing up in that time frame. If you show up, you're going to have to translate that handle for me. smile.gif I'll be in the old, battered black Eclipse.

I will be there around noon as well, I'll bring my house and gear but not the auger as it sounds like there will already be one or two. I can only stay for a few hours but that will be ok as this is my first time out this year.

      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.
    • Cheers
      get a guide for a day

      Pulled a nice cat out of the Cloquet tonight...

      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.

      Eden prairie purgatory lake is full of carp. You can see them from the dock or the bridge.

          Orvis has some awesome tutorials on their web sites. They teach at whatever level you are in flyfishing. I've gone there many times. They've also got an awesome app with fishing reports including wwater conditions, fly selection and hw to fish it.       Check them out and good fishing.

      I didn't fish any walleye this weekend- only bass. I would fish Friday and Saturday mornings from 530-830 and caught half a dozen largies in the 3-4lb range on a spinner bait. I just got my Garmin fish finder with sideview which will hopefully help me better locate the walleyes. Del, were you marking fish as you'd go over them?

      Latest Landing gossip...... First hearing in trial was july 25th.   Judge took motions under advisement. In the mean time, since none of the locals would work there, they imported a bunch of people on H2b visas as seasonal workers and put them up in a little house in Cook.  Charging them $285 per month.  Like 20 people in the house.   Now many have quit and found other jobs, and some also found other places to live.   They have to hang on since they need to wait until their scheduled airplane tickets.. which they also had to pay for.   That's the news from the Laundromat.... Believe it or so what.

      Neighbor guy got a couple slot fish on west wakemup with leadcore.   I got a couple, one 19.95 and other 22, rigging crawler also on west wakemup although a different area.  Mine were in like 18 feet.
