      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 .

We are heading up this weekend but the weathermen are predicting rain and 17MPH NW wind on saturday. Can anyone suggest any smaller lakes nearbe to try if we can't fish the big lake?

We drive past Gull Lake and was always wondering if that is a good lake to try?

Gull is a great lake here. 2400 acres and 11 miles of shorline. Average depth is around 20ft. with a couple of deeper holes. We have a few good underwater islands which are usually a good place for the walleyes this time of year. It seems yesterday that most folks were fishing off the point of bullrushes towards the northwest shores. There is a public launch off of County 23 as well as my launch here at the resort. I didn't get out yesterday but am going to do some dock repair, pump some rental boats and then set out later today to try my luck.

Pat, we will have to stop in some time and visit with you and try out your lake, looks like a neat lake. Do you have cabins for rent??

Stop by any time. We have housekeeping cabins and a few full hook up RV sites. You can check out our site for more info on that. You'll like Gull Lake. It's one of those "best kept secrets". My groups and I did real well on Saturday and Sunday considering the conditions.

Hope to see you soon.

Don't know much about Gull but Blackduck is a good walleye lake. Decent panfish too.

I love Pimushe because it is shaped in such a way that there is a place to hide no matter what the wind direction. Lots of action for smaller pike and bass. Good panfish too. One of my favorite lakes in that area.

      I haven't ice fished this lake in about 4 years. It had a pretty large scale winter kill a few years back. I am sure it has since rebounded. Lakes like this typically come back pretty quickly following winter kill, especially with the mild winters we have had as of late. Mayhew used to be loaded with smaller perch, and had decent crappie action at times. I too would be curious to know how Mayhew is doing. Wish I could be more help to you.

      Be very cautious on lakes even further north of the Ogilvie area lakes. As of 3 days ago, there was still significant open water on Ripple, Hickory, Big Pine, Cedar, Bay, Farm Island, and numerous other lakes in the Mille Lacs, and Aitken area. Be very cautious, take your time, and test the ice every 10 yards or so, particularly if you get anywhere near anything that would be considered mid lake. Area resorts and bait shops are very reluctant to give advice that would be considered a green light to access even the small lakes. Be safe....

      East access..... only 3.5" - 4"  200 yards out.  .... don't know north acces as I saw enough to  stay off.

      Anyone on here been out on White Bear yet? I've seen a few people out off the Ramsey Beach area where the truck went through the other day but have not had a chance to venture out myself. Normally I hit the Belaire area early ice. Thanks!

      wealthwood had1.5 last weekend, i saw no one out but 1 person on the whole west side last wsat afternoon. thi week the resorts on the north end and east are reporting decent ice. check with the resorts before you go out. id stay away from public accesses now and follow a staked road.
    • MrSchrute
      Have you fished out there before? Is it worth putting some time in on the ice? Thanks-
    • walleyewalby

    • dindunuffins
