      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 .

Hit Waconia today. Fished from 10am to 3pm... NOT a BITE. I think the storm today shut it down. I tried the pencil reeds on the north east side until it got too windy. Then worked down the east side south past the landing till about Anderson's reef. Tried a variety of plastics (comedas, 7 inch powerbaits t-rigged, tubes), DT's 10 and 16, Spinnerbaits,Buzzbaits, and skitter pops fire tiger and black/silver. NOT one bite... unreal. I'm in one heck of a slump. Depressing. confused.gifconfused.gifmad.gif Any advice Alpid???

i fish waconia just about every weekend. bigget fish so far have been a 7.2lb,6.5lb and a 5.7lb last weekend. stay on the westside of the lake. turds(waconia) bay is very good but it gets very very weeded after june. topwater in the mornings and afternoons, i turn to plastics when the heat picks up. theres a few good spots on the northshore but the water is way to low to get into them.

the 5.7 i pulled out a couple weeks ago came out of 8"-12" water. and it was hot that day. didnt expect it at all.

Thinking about getting out there tonight for some bassin' and wondering if anyone has got out there lately? It's been a couple of weeks since my last adventure. Water clarity, etc...

Last time I got them on the outside edges on small plastics, hoping this still will work as long as things haven't changed too much.

Thanks

Was out there mond. Water clarity was as bad as I have ever seen it. Very green and murky. I personally tried a couple reefs (deep weed edge) as well as alot of turd bay docks up to the rock dock area. Not one bite. Very dissapointing outing. The weather was weird that day (28th) to say the least. Went from dead calm to windy and rainy, to dead calm with a sig. temp drop, to windy again and then some more rain.... It was 61 degrees that day. Anyway, I wish you luck. I tried rattle traps, DT's, T-rigged worms, Jig-n-pig, wacky rigged comedas, tubes, spinnerbaits, skitter pops, and buzzbaits. All to no Avail. I was on the lake for 4.5 hours. frown.gif

Thanks for the response. With the clarity sounding terrible I might end up somewher else on the west side. Monday's weather was pretty wierd though, it has stablized since then. Might be a game time decision.

Thanks

      Per the DNR news release dated November 20th:  “Wheeled fish houses, which formerly were considered portable – and thus excluded from licensing requirements for shelters – will now need to be licensed,” said Al Stevens, fisheries survey and systems consultant with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. “In the past, anglers using wheelhouses could use them without shelter licenses as long as they were occupied, including overnight.” The change pursued by the DNR and enabled by 2017 legislation accompanied hunting and angling fee increases. An annual resident shelter license is $16. A three-year license is $43. Owners of houses to be rented pay $31 annually or $88 for a three-year license. A valid license tag must be attached to the outside of the fish house in a readily visible location. ~~~~~ Any ideas on how to go about attaching them since they're no longer stickers like they used to be? Apparently you can't put them inside in a window facing out per the 'outside' requirement of the law.

      so here’s the scoop , as most fishermen know most of the resorts up here started letting wheeler and sleds out on the lake last weekend. That does not mean you can go any where you want as the winds have shifted the ice a couple times and opened up a few cracks . Check with the resort you access and stay in the areas that have been checked out.
      The fishing has been pretty good.
      I have had a few projects that were put off untell I got laid off from the golf course and mother nature again made my projects more challenging. I’m making progress slow and steady and maybe this time I have learned my lesson not to put these off when its 70 and sunny. Chasing breaking 80 at the golf course has got me processed.
      From the looks of it there a good chance we will have all our sleepers on the lake by the 7th of dec.
      My plans are again to go out of Hillmens resort and help Buddy hillmen with his road. He has built a 2 story house that may or may not be on the lake as its huge, I think it can sleep 8 to 10. Its crazy big 14 by 28.

      I appreciate the feedback. We love being out on the ice, so we'll keep plugging away.  Good luck to all this winter and be safe out there!

      I seen in the  paper it will be at Leech lake again this year.

      I was worried about the wire size too. Thanks ProV. I guess I can’t avoid it. 
    • fishingstar
      you don't have any wires on your 7 pin plug that is heavy enough.  
    • PRO-V
      I would run wire straight to the battery with an in line fuse at the battery and use a separate 2 prong connector at the trailer.

      Unfortunately they have not found them yet. Freeze up  with the thin ice has really hampered the search. Too much ice for boats and not enough to travel on. As the ice thickens the searchers are working their way deeper. Such a sad situation.
    • KidMoe
      I’m hoping I can get some advice from you fine folks. I’m looking to install a small electric winch on my snowmobile trailer to load my skid house. I’m wondering if I can power it off the 7 pin connector?  From what I can find, my truck is fused at 10 amp and most of the winches I’m finding pull somewhere around 50 to 60 amps at 1500 lbs or so. I’m wondering what I could do to still run it off the 7 pin. Do I need to add a battery? Maybe a capacitor? i appreciate any thoughts you might have!

      I spotted them also this evening out from McKinley. A few more days yet before I will give it a try! Cliff
