      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.

    • Harpenter
      I'm 4-5 hours South, but my cousin texted me yesterday and said guys are walking out from the North side of French.  He said there's still open water on the South side though.

      @river rat316 is turning into a walleye guy Boo!  Just let me know when you want to fish for gills again.
    • crappie king 42
      Moose is right. We fish the same area and all those lakes were sketchy with old sheets of ice and lots of open/skim ice. I have not been out this week but vetween my brother and friends i have heard the ice is all getting stronger. Idk if ive ever seen lakes freeze like this. Plus snow everyday makes it scary when u cant see the ice. No mater what dont go alone and just because u see people out there dont mean the ice is good. Lots of circumstanes this year where u have 6 inches in one spot and 5 feet away there is one inch

      Out of the north west part of the lake yesterday, found anywhere from 5-8 inches of ice.  Close to a few pressure ridges there was less than 3 inches.  There are a lot of patches of rough ice and pressure ridges so be careful.  Saw several places where spearer's were set up where they pushed the ice block under the ice and did not mark their holes, please people be cautions.

      Here's the scoop, Buddy Hillmen is now allowing 1/2 ton trucks with single axle wheel houses.. Also any size wheel house pulled by wheeler or side by side. Drive slow there's a bridge plate about a mile out. Do not try and cross berm to the south of road. I have all ready seen a couple tracks where they did not make it through. be safe use commom sense and enjoy such a grand lake. On a side note. Last weekend a small fish house was set up about 200 yards from me. Sunday I was driving by and noticed a plastic bag so I stopped to pick it up. It was pushed down into the augured hole and turned out to be a bag of poop. From now on I will be taking random pics of wheel houses and if I find that kind of crap again I will be reporting to dnr and expect a possible ticket in the mail.

      Some are fishing it.   But the winds kept parts open till Monday.  Be cautious as you go.  Ice thickness really varies.
    • Naturboy
      I checked ice earlier and there was 2 different ice sheets one was 4” ant that time and the other was 1 1/2”. The 1 1/2” ice was most of the lake. Be very careful on there.
