      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 .

S.t. do you have any ideas on grand I was in 17 fow and it was slow then we moves it to 10 fow . there we got northerns and it has slowed down. do you think the oxygen is depleating for them? do you think they are moving deeper? We haven't got a walleye all winter and only one perch. confused.gif the northern have been in the 30" range and fun to get. any ideas about depth would help I also told my Buddy we should get away from the crowd. grin.gif Thanks in advance Nels

Nels, if you haven't gotten into any eyes or crappies I would move. Things have slowed a bit for me where I'm set up but we're still getting some eyes and crappies. Your kinda in the middle of the pack so a move to the outside and on the fringe of the deep water would be a good move.

I can't complain about the number of houses out there since I'm one of them. grin.gif The best bite overall has been after dark but theres some days the day bite is just as good. If you want to do a little hunting for new water out there let me know. I might just pull up and move too.

If you are getting only big pike then that might explain why you are not getting walleyes and crappies. If big pike are in a area there usually is much of anything else. They don't want to get eaten.

I have some ideas, but I dont want to mess with it in the dark. I would have loved to get the shack moved before the snow tonight but oh well. I will bring some stuff out to grill also. Do you have a ice chisel? I lost mine and it was not fun getting the holes open in the house without it.

I hope to be out next weekend Brett. I'm out of comission for the week. I blew the transmission on my truck pulling a (Contact US Regarding This Word) tow truck out of the ditch.

He was called to pull a cop out that was stuck, and he got stuck doing it. Didn't even get the cop pulled out. I pulled the cop out no problem, then went to tackle him...thinking my truck is big and bad....well, i got him unstuck, but i broke the winch off the back of his flatbed, and also broke 2 of his tow ropes/straps.

I put the truck in reverse and slammed on the gas before the truck had a chance to switch gears, so it slammed into gear real hard and crumbled into pieces.

New transmission is on the way from Minneapolis, and Northstar says its all under warranty, thank god!

Ouch. I blow the 5.7 Hemi's out of the water! That's mopar power for ya! hahahaha

Actually, i think it was mostly user error. One time when i took about a 5' run at it, i put the truck in reverse and gunned it, hitting the gas before the transmission actually had time to shift into reverse. So basically is slammed into gear...and was toast after not.

That sucks Papa. Did you ever get that camera you were talking about?

ST - We are going to move the shack tomorrow morning. If you are out look for a red Ford Ranger and a gray GMC Envoy.

We are set up right next to Nels

      Picked up some nice crappie and a couple eater walleyes on Allouez Bay the other day before the rains. Trolled crawlers with one light split shot and others with bottom bouncers. I was surprised at how big the crappie were

      ripped out some old boards that were well past their prime on my boat.  Any recomendations on what to replace them with?  They looked to be treated plywood but wondering if getting something different would work better.  Such as a piece of 1 x 12 pine and throwing a few coats of polyurethane on it as well?  The boards I am talking about are for the benches.   Also, replacing the seats in there as well.  Previous i had the the vinyl foam seats.  When shopping around i am seeing a lot of the molded plastics chairs.  Any preference out there for durability?  Vinyl rips but wondering if the molded crack or break?   Thanks for any feed back!

      The flocks of geese are now flying over my house in the morning and evening, but when this happens Finn gets all jacked up. Like right now he is nudging me and running pawing at the window. A few minutes earlier when the first gaggle few over I was going to change the laundry and Finn raced down and sat by gun safe  whining.  Fishing reports have been great for crappies on the area lakes. Walleyes are not biting as well in lakes but when the rum is clearer that is the place to be. Bears any no quota hunters this might be your year to get a bear around here.  Deer seem to every where drive carefull.  Seeing some ducks flying around.  I have seen a few grouse and pheasants.

      I've been by a time or two trying to figure out which place is yours.   I was out on wakemup last night too.   Got nothing, on crawlers.  Started out at merry go round, went to "picnic island" (little island east/south of taylors).  rigged along edge of those two humps in like 18-25 feet.   Musky guys were coming so I turned.  They turned too, chunking baits in the vicinity of my boat.   Then some guys in a pontoon pulled up and anchored in front of me  and threw out bobbers.   Fished a while longer, and it was getting sort of dark so went home.   Weird.  I've been on those humps a bunch of times this year, and suddenly I get company.   And, even though it is a pretty big area they gravitated to where I was.  I'll be out today too, so if you need help with supervision, let me know.    But I will drive by to check out the new construction.

      Been getting a few on the weed line, early am when there's a little breeze, since the surface temps started coming down. That was about this month's full moon, for me. A very slow troll, fishing vertically, & just a 1/16 oz. jig.
