      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 .

MARCH FISHING

Recommended Posts

A GROUP OF 6-8 OF US ARE PLANNING A TRIP IDEALLY IN MARCH SINCE PREVIOUS RESPONSES HAVE SAID THAT USUALLY IS DECENT FISHING.

WE ARE PLANNING TO FISH OUT OF PORTABLES. OUR QUESTION WE HAVE IS IF IT IS WARM, AND THERE IS WATER ON THE LAKE, WHAT HAVE PEOPLE DONE IN THE PAST SINCE IT WOULD BE MISERABLE TRYING TO FISH IN 6-8" OF WATER IN A PORTABLE? NOT FISH? TRY TO FIND A RESORT WITH AN OPEN SPOT? WE ARE EITHER THINKING THE 2ND WEEKEND IN MARCH OR THE WEEKEND BEFORE OR AFTER VALENTINES. ANY RESPONSES WOULD BE GREAT. ALSO - WE ASSUME IF THERE IS A TON OF SNOW PORTABLES ARE PRETTY MUCH OUT OF THE QUESTION AS WELL?

March fishing is a great time to come to Red Lake. I have been going now for 6 years the first week in March and we have always had not only great fishing, but also great times! Early March typically has solid ice with little to no melt on the top layer of two of ice. Mid to late March may bring a little melt, but nothing too bad. Its a great time to fish and there will be lots of people there during this month so make sure you find a place to stay soon if possible. Snow, you'll just have to check local forecast info, but even if there is a lot of snow, fising protables is fairly easy just off all the main plowed roads. In fact, we always fish protables and love every minute of it! Have fun, be safe, don't litter and good luck!

Hey Ken,

I am bringing the Iowa/Minnesota contingent up on the 20th and staying at one of the trailers again at WW. Hopefully you and the crew are able to make it again that weekend. I will have 8 with me including the infamous Whiskey Jerk! Oh, by the way, don't forget that monster of a tow strap this year since we will have the same Tahoe plus another with a trailer on the lake! You just never know when your around the Temple. Great to hear from you and we'll see you at the WW bar Thursday, Friday, Saturday night? How about all of them. Should also be good fishing since the weather will plain out by the middle of next week. Take care bud!

SORRY FOR SHOUTING!! The program we use at work only functions in the caps lock. Anyways, I still have not received a response from people on what to do if there is 4 feet of snow and you are fishing out of portables? can a guy fish on the roads? is there spots that are plowed? should we bring a snow blower?

Bring a snow shovel along. Great for setting up portables. Even better if you get stuck in a snow bank. The way snow blows on that lake you'll always find a spot with less snow to fish in. Do not fish on the roads. You want to get away from the traffic. Not be the traffic cop. Plus it would be a great way to get run over.

Good Luck when you head up. I'll likely make one last trip the end of March as long as the ice holds out.

DO NOT fish on the roads ever! When you drill a hole on the road, the weight of the plow banks and the vehicles causes water to come up on the road and flood it.... it makes for a lot of work for the plow operaters to straighten that out. I've never seen it where you couldn't get off the road somewhere and get set-up. Follow someone elses tracks, a plowed side road, an area where the snow blew off etc... For the most part, the snow only gets so deep on Red due to the wind blowing up there... cross country travel can become difficult to impossible after snow events, but you will find areas to set-up.

Good Luck!

Ken

      Thank you one and all, especially you Tommy. Some very kind words and ditto to you my friend. "Ace" "It's just fishing man"

      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.
