      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 .

5:45am started out at half moon trolling perch shad raps #7 & #5.By 7am we landed 9 over the slot all around 24-25".trolled in 4'-12' most of the fish came from 8-10'

About 11 am we had 1 20"

Next bite was on spider island.first pass we landed 3 17"-18".Next pass we went out a little deeper to find nothing but big pike.Made about 20 passes in 13' to finish up for a full limit.Trolling speed had to be 1.75-2mph

So we set up some big rigs for those big pike.several 5-8lb's no hogs to be had when your ready.Then we hooked into a musky right behind the boat when we were reeling up are lines to call it a day.After 15 minutes of fun it finaly got off.

This morning we slept in after a nite out.8 am we started out at half moon.1st pass we were forced to troll inbetween several boats bobber fishing.28"er right smack in the middle of the bobbers.60 yards on each side of us we could see 5 bobbers.We turned around went back on the same path.Another 27 1/2"er.All the boats lifted anchor and started to troll.No more fish so we moved into the bay.

Went to 2 #5 perch shads 12 nice jumbo perch in 7'.Several 6"-10" eyes & 3 pike all about 3-4lbs.

Trolled are way back to the cabin 6'-15'FOW 2 23-24"ers

Talked to a few guys trolling.The guys using dark green colors got fish.We passed the info on to a couple guys.Later on in the day we ran into 1 of the guys he thanked us he was headed in with a limit.Not sure what reef he was fishing but he pointed at half moon.He said all his came from the last marker.He had to almost hit the marker with the shad he said.He held a couple up with a big smile.

Finaly i got lunch it only costed me about a grand in gas to catch my lunch he said.After we got home and i looked at my wallet i now know what he was talkin about

      Thanks snowfighter. Coming up Dec 9 weekend.my brother took some fish outta little turtle the weekend of Oct 7 th. Sounds like from your end of the lake. Seen pics, some decent pike.
    • Wanderer
      With 2 trout stamps you can keep double your limit. You heard it here first on the interwebs!  Me and Mr Williams will swing by and say Hi this winter in Ely.   That is, if we can get around your sled!!  Happy Thanksgiving!

      don't  give them any ideas!

       There is probably not going to be much ice to speak of  if the forecast holds true. They are talking 50s on Friday, Sunday and Monday. Any ice we did have will most likely be gone, unfortunately.
    • snowfighter
      Haven't been out looking but things have been froze up for awhile. Heard there was some out on Bowstring last week.

      Wife you dummy  I know the problem first hand !!
    • MJ1657
      It's that time of year. Cone on up and see if you can claim the Nord Lord. Spearing in the Third River Flowage in Winnie. Pizza party Friday night in the lodge potluck in the ice Saturday at noon.   Any questions hollar.

      Saw something interesting on forest lake this morning...lake was completely locked up, yet someone had launched their boat and was trudging through the ice! That’s dedication! Anyone have any ice updates to report?

      2 Trout stamps.  Did I miss something and need to go back and get another?
    • Wanderer
      The 200 foot rule gets me a little but it has to be defined somehow what is occupied and what isn’t.   So for a wheelhouse we get to buy tabs to have on the road and a sticker to have it on the ice and go away for a little while.  Seems pretty close to double taxation since any LE can find out who the owner is from the current plate. Plus the spear shack that I might want to keep up over the weekend.  2 tags plus license. Combination sports license 2 trout stamps Waterfowl stamps Pheasant stamp  Turkey license (stamp now included) Deer license for all seasons   The bucket is getting heavy with all the drops in it.
