      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 .

If you are going onto the lake at Wheelers Point you will go accross 4 mile bay to Pine Island. Adrians resort plows a road out from Wheelers Point and stake it out for travel. THe access fee is $5, a reasonable price to have good roads to travel. You might want to stop at Adrians and check with him if you have any other questions. We stay at Riverbend which is the next resort and use Adrians road as well. Bill

Went out last Sun. thru Tues. in a Cherokee on Adriens road. At least a foot. With the cold weather the last couple days, I've heard 17"+ past Pine. Should only get thicker.

I talked to Adrian's yesterday, we're going up Dec. 26th also, fishing in their houses. Plenty of ice now, everyone will be able to drive out . There is more than 16" of ice in the bay and out plenty far on the lake. Good luck. The fishing was great 2 weeks ago when we were there. smile.gif Stan C.

Adrian's Road Update!! (12-25-04)

The road/trail is in great shape. There is not much snow on the lake at all. There is bare ice with random drifting with the snow being 2-4 inches deep at the drifts. There are hardside houses everywhere up and down Pine Island. The ice is plenty thick enough in the area that all the houses are, I would say 16-20" in places. We ventured out to the outer edge of the houses, almost immediately at the end of Adrian's Rd and found a tad more than 12" of ice. In less than a 1/8th to a 1/4 of a mile the ice was 6-8" difference in thickness. I would under no circumstances head out into the great unknown without checking the ice along the way. If you are among the houses, no problem.

Brock, I was out yesterday. The road over pine is in good shape with one small crack right on the lake side of Pine. There are a ton of resort houses out and more being towed out every hour. I set up right at the end of the houses in about 28' and had steady action all day. It was just myself and I managed 29 fish in about 5 hours. The majority were under 12" but I did manage to keep 7 13-14". I caught nothing on the deadstick, every fish was caught using a 1/8 oz forage minnow tipped with a smalll shiner head. They really had to be coaxed off the bottom but once they chased it up they almost always hit it. I'll be up again on thursday to give it another shot.

      Thanks for the update cigarguy- were you lindy rigging?
    • CigarGuy
      Neighbor and I went out in Wakemup for a couple hours tonight and got a 18" and 19" and had a nice one come unbutton on the way in....Leaches and crawlers.  That's good for me!  20 - 34' off a break line.  Del, working on the last flight of the steps-was looking for you to stop by and help!

      I used lead core on Friday and had a ball catching walleyes of all sizes.  I started in the morning and stayed out until I just got tired in the afternoon.  I probably pulled in as many as 20 or so.  My formula was:  90 feet of line, 19-24 ft of water, #5 rattling split deep shad rap.  Silver color.  I kept it right at 2mph.  I also did much better when I pumped the rod in a regular cadence.  Keeping it in the rod holder didn't produce near the fish.

      Ace, I hope you enjoy your retirement.  I hired you one time and my boy and I had a good time.  I appreciate the hard work you did on putting us on fish.  Good Luck and maybe "Little Ace" can continue the family business some day!   Michael Theis

      These are legal aliens.  Glad you enjoyed your lunch.

      Trolling or casting jigs and spinners(silver or gold are best for pike IMO) near the weeds, in bays, etc, cranks, and top water buzz baits around weedy areas are how I get most of my pike. Use a leader. Orange jig heads with a sparkly yellow twister tail and a jumbo leech gets me more pike than any other method. Your mileage may vary.

      I had lunch there a couple of days ago. Great service and good food! I did not see any illegal type aliens there at that time!  Cliff
