      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 .

Was great yesterday. Eating size walleyes and huge bluegill caught off bottom bouncers and crawler harness. Used the bottom bouncer more like a downrigger because of snags. Had a great breakfast this morning. Plus, got to play with my new boat cool.gif

Thanks. I'd been on them, then kind of lost 'em. Hope to get the wife and daughter out this weekend - 'spose you were moving right along. I've been using white corkies on a rig - 3'-4' above my slip sinker with a crawler.

Has anybody been up to fish the last week or so? My girlfriend wants to go fishing on Saturday. Just hoping for a report on if the eye's are biting or if I just entertain her with sunnies. Because they're delicious too!

At this time last year we had a blast drifting 1/8th oz. jigs and minnows over submerged weeds by Dock Island. We caught some huge perch and some nice sunnies as well as nice eyes.

It was truly a wedding of our dreams!! We had 75 people on the island and even had a float plane so the "new" wife could throw her flowers from it!! We left the dock cause the pelicans just loved it!! We did get some heat from MP&L but told they we werent intreasted in "Squatting rights" as we worded the island all summer long...... I sure hope people take care of the island like we did!! We will be up there tomorrow to celibrate our anniverisy. If your out there we will be in a white and tan SmokerCraft.... Say HI!!!

I dont think the "dock island" referred to here is the same one You got married on as it wont fit 75 people,,,,Im thinking You had your cerimony at the campsite with the gardens planted on the west side of the lake ,,,,birch/dock island is almost due south of the public landing

Happy Anniversary!!!!!!!!

Well my weekend of fishing didn't make it out of the driveway. Hooked up the boat bought it to the front of the house, got out to lock up the house, came around the front end of my truck and saw a beautifully colored puddle that smelled so sweet! frown.gif Blew my water pump. But at least it happened in my driveway I guess. Better there than the landing. I guess I needed to do yard work anyways.

      First ice fishing trip today out of morson ontario .  Fishing  was a little slow got a few walleyes and a couple of crappies . Lost what little  snow we had today made the ice really  slippery. Found 9 to 11 inches of ice.

      Dang Curt, did you take my suggestion on a drone?  Great report.

      Well, I have to pay for registration on my boat trailer to run it on the road, and the boat to run it on the lake, why shouldn't wheel houses?  I guess I don't feel bad for the wheel house guys.

      No not yesterday. 2 weeks ago when we had that first cold spell I went out on Baxter, Blue and Long and checked the ice. They were locked up but only had 1-2" inches so didn't venture out too far. Baxter probably was walkable but had open water on the back end so figured I stay off. Last Sunday I went and checked them out after that warm rainy week we had and they had open water, so yesterday I skipped checking them and went farther north. But I did notice most lakes were locked up on the drive up there. Cant wait for the local lakes to get some decent ice!

      Wondering if big sandy is clear enough to spear fish when the ice comes on? Never done it before and would like to give it a try
    • monstermoose78
      Bryan did you check any lakes around me?
    • Bryan P
      Had to scratch the ice fishing itch, so I drove up north to the Mille Lacs lake area and found a smaller lake with 4-5" of ice. Punch a few holes and found some crappies and sunnies. Nothing big but was fun time and a great way to start my ice seaso n! Bring on the ice!  Check out the video: https://youtu.be/BTTv_G07PB8
