      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 .

URL cleanup and FISHING!!!! Saturday

Recommended Posts

LABS4ME

A group of us are meeting at Westwinds at 8-8:30am Saturday to form a garbage brigade. We are going to go out to the great expanse of ice with our wheelers and pick up the "left-overs" from all the slobs who unfortunatley also visit this great lake. Our goal is to pick up trash for 3-4 hours, come back to shore and deposit it in the dumpsters, reorganize at Westwinds for lunch and head back out as a formidable force and teach those crappies a lesson! grin.gif The fishing the last week has been nothing short of fantastic! Anybody want to meet up with a bunch of IBOTs and make a day of it? So far I know Jigglestick, Bearplott, Blackshack and I are in.... anybody else? You can post here or call my cell phone at 651.341.4581 and let me know if you're gonna make it up or if you need to meet us on the lake. Sounds like short sleeve weather on Saturday! grin.gif

Good Luck!

Ken

well there are probably some trash under the ice also. Last week Tuesday I was out there and had my Aqua Vu checking out old holes and one spot there were a whole bunch of used toliet paper on the bottom of the lake, which was pretty nasty. i was ticked off about it, the fish probably stayed away from that area? I think the clean up get together is a great idea.

Sounds good Bareback! We may have to wait a little while though. Shortly after he was born he was airlifted down to Mpls Childrens Hospital. He has been in the NICU ever since. He is having a hard time breathing on his own. He is starting to get a little stronger though, and hopefully we will be able to bring him home in a few days. Later, Scott.

Thanks Ken! Things are looking up. He is getting stronger and needing less and less oxygen all of the time. I came back home yesterday to spend a little time with the other 2 kids. It is still uncertain when we will be able to bring him home. Thanks for the thoughts and prayers.

We didn't clean up the shore but rather the ice itself... it was the last day ATV's were allowed to access the lake... Unfortunatley we didn't get all the way over on to Hillman's or Westwind's roads. We did clean up out at the ends of their roads in the 6-7 mile range, and that wasn't to bad, I heard it was a lot worse in the 4-5 mile range. We accessed at Mort's and picked up several trailer loads of garbage, the typical pop and beer cans, broken minnow buckets, propane bottles, but the tied up plastic bags were really making my stomach turn by the end of the day. 90% of them were used to hold the remains of "yesterdays" bratwurst and beer, and the other 10% were filled with filleted out walleye remains! confused.gif We also counted several walleye carcasses laying on the ice that no doubt became exposed once the snow drifts melted. The gulls were busy cleaning them up. Anyone who doubts how many walleye are being kept right now, should go out at seasons end and see for themselves how large the problem really is. Also, if you need to relieve yourself, tie up your bag and bring it to shore... I don't think my 7 year old kid still has figured out why "adults" can be such pigs! He even has enough common sense to pack it out, but the "adults" can't figure out that there is no such thing as the "poop fairy" that will magically pick up their bag of crap! frown.gif It was truley disgusting! After 4 hours of cleaning up I can honestly say we only made a small dent in the problem. There will be a couple lakeshore efforts yet to come this spring and summer, if you can make it, the help will be appreciated.

Good Luck!

Ken

Labs, your report of what you found is truly, "DISSAPOINTING." To think that this goes on all over the state.......... Well, I just dont know what to think. During the Medicine lake cleanup in the City I found Crappies stuffed just under the snow next to a hole that was from the day before confused.gif

Thanks for all your efferts as to the clean up!

      The wife and I were up to L O W  for whole week. Great weather, good fishing and fun time. Was able to fish 7 days split up between Morris point, Long point and the river. For me Long point was the better bite. May have seen a couple members of outdoors Mn on Tuesday out of LP. Let me know if I'm right. Also met member from Wisc. at Morris point( real good guy) Anyway didn't seem to matter much what color jig caught them on every color with frozen shiner. Some days were better then others but always caught fish. Ate several meals of fish and brought fish home. Also caught a 14 in perch that I brought into taxidermist. Plan on going back at least one more time this fall . ( Too good not to).

      That the best sounding plan yet!! same to you and your party.

      Got some grouse and saw some nice coveys. The biggest was 6 birds but found couple groups of 5. That is always fun.
    • eyeguy 54
      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!  
    • 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.
