      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 .

Not sure which lakes you are planning on going to. I was west of Swanville, and north of Upsala this weekend and drove without a problem. Meausred 15-17" on the lakes I was at. I had the 4 wheeler along, but didn't take it off the trailer. Good luck, dress warm. Bill

Most of the area lakes have drivable ice right now. Although I'd avoid breaking any new trails on unfamiliar lakes. Thay all have trouble spots to avoid or you'll get wet.

Good Luck this weekend and stay warm.

Are you fishing with Jason? You should be good to go almost anywhere this weekend in your truck if you are fishing where I think you will be fishing. Plenty of ice on almost every lake. I have got a couple tips for you depending on the species you are going after. Let me know an I can drop you a PM if you want.

Bundle up it is supposed to be a cold one!

Take care!

SunnyD,

Yes I am fishing with Jason. I can't tell who you are by the picture but that is a nice pike. Area Reports would be great, Jason hasn't been fishing a lot so far this ice season, he has been busy working, coaching, and hunting. My email is bass5051atyahoodotcom thanks AJ

Brandon,

We will be fishing both days and I will be coming back to Duluth Sun. night. Do you still have the same phone #? If so I will give you a call on Sat. or you can call me my # is the same. Call me I might forget, I do that sometimes. It souldn't be a problem for you to come with, I am not sure where we are fishing. I have so many places I want to try (old spots) but not enough time. Later AJ

I am the guy who went to Lac Suel with you this summer. John is my name...remember now??? Sure was a blast and I have some pics for you from the trip if you want I can send them to you on a burned CD if you want. Got a couple good ones of you and your dad on one of the flat calm days we had up there.

Anyway I do have a couple spots that are good at particular times of the day for some walleye if that is what you are chasing. About the Pike, this one came on Mille Lacs in late September trolling for Muskie. One of my friends got me into it and since the walleye bite was slow this fall I told myself that it is at least something to do when you can't catch walleyes, before you know it I have two rod/reel combo's a good selection of lures and a big ol' Dunwright Tackle Box that makes me think I need to take up weight lifting again.

I will drop you an email tomorrow and share a couple spots that have been OK for us this winter thus far.

Take care AJ!

AJ- I'm at the same #, give me a call tomorrow night. I actually don't have anything going for Saturday afternoon/evening. So if you are going to be on the lake, I'll meet up with you around 1:00pm or so.

If I don't hear from you, I'll try you later!

Looking forward to meeting up with you.

      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.
    • Wanderer
      Sounds good! May an oversized deer with obscenely large antlers find its way to you!  
    • DLD24
      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.
    • ANYFISH2
      hummm, hadn't heard a thing?
    • ANYFISH2
      Good luck. Maybe we will see you Friday. I will let you know how things are looking by us as the weekend goes by.
    • Wanderer
      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.
