      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 .

Zipple this weekend

Recommended Posts

fishman50

Hey guys. Five buddies and I will be heading to Zipple this weekend to fish Saturday and Sunday out of one of their sleepers. Easily my favorite weekend of the year. Just wondering what's been good for the walleyes and saugers. It sounds like a slow bite and I don't imagine this impending cold snap is going to help matters, but anything been producing fairly consistantly? I typically jig one rod and deadstick another, but I'm open to anything.

Thanks for the help. Have a good one!!

We'll be there Friday AM. Hope it was like last year, -45 and the fish were bitting!! cool.gif We'll be in a sleeper as well. Does anyone know how deep they have the sleepers? Hopefully they'll be in the 25-30 ft range.

Good luck and stay warm. grin.gif

Fishman50-

2 of us fished Zipple on Saturday and the deadstick / jigging rod combo worked great. We caught our limit in 5 hours but they very finicky and we had to move around to get on them. With 5 guys in your group, you need to start off using a variety of lures and colors which will enable you dial into whatever they will eat on a given day. For example, our deadstick with a red glow demon got zero hits while the one with regular glow caught 5 or 6 fish. So instead of switching the red glow to a regular glow, I put on a gold jig which also caught nothing, but you never know from day to day what will work.

      Got some grouse and saw some nice coveys. The biggest was 6 birds but found couple groups of 5. That is always fun.

      we mainly jigged fatheads in front of their mouths. 2 weeks ago also and tried a few different times over 3 days this trip. water is still crazy low so I don't think many boats will be using access. Also tried a couple different plastics and some gulp. Probably ready to go crazy up there soon.  Last year at this time it was really good. Might get there once more before ice time but not sure.

      Been thinking about breaking out the Jiggin Raps, might have to give that a shot. It's been too crowded out there this weekend with MEA going on.

      Sounds good! May an oversized deer with obscenely large antlers find its way to you!

      Well the weather was pretty crappy but the fish were biting...Had to sort through but kept some for dinner. Caught a variety today, eyes,jumbos,crappie and a few smallies... rigging on or next to rocks worked best for us.

      Good luck. Maybe we will see you Friday. I will let you know how things are looking by us as the weekend goes by.

      I still hope it's double!  I just went over the map with my brother and talked about our options.  We have enough places to go for sure.  It's always fun planning and talking about past hunts. I put out the question to the other two guys about staying in camp vs the house.  We'll see what they decide.  I hauled our "cabin" home from Ely today so we should have plenty of room if they wanna camp.
