      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 .

Matt Johnson and myself hit Washington today for a few hours to relax and maybe hook a few.We tried mainly for panfish with all plastics and it was very slow.We fished just about all the structure on the lake. frown.gif

The majority of the fish were in the depth range from 8-14fow and most were on the bottom with a few being suspended.We did catch some and Matt caught a huge crappie and mine was just a tick bigger.Matts went approx 3 inches and mine was a huge 4.5 inches and that is maybe stretching it a inch or so.We did get some nice sunnies but the quantity was not there.

Matt,I enjoyed another day on the lake with you and as usuall the fish are just the bonus.

Thanks for the invite. smile.gif

Thanks for the report HL. That's fishin'. If you would have concentrated in the 2 - 4' range on the N end of the lake, your results would have been much different. smirk.gif

Nice deer!

Thanks,I would like to shoot his grandpa. smile.gifMaybe this fall. smile.gif

We did work the shallows all over and that was worse than the rest,just a tough day for the fish yet a great day on the water.Maybe less sun and a little wind would have helped us the most.Off second they were slowly catching some sunnies but nothing to get excited about.Time to go and drill some real fish (flatheads )maybe. smile.gif

Nice to see you again today Tom, always a pleasure.

We tried shallow water on the N end, but no takers. Maybe you just have the magic touch Jamison wink.gif

I hardly doubt that.

Actually, the best bite has been more in the NE corner as of late but I didn't want to get to specific the first go-around. grin.gif

Dad and I went up there on saterday morning, managed to catch 6 gills around 8" as well as some smallers ones and 3 crappies from 9"-11", all fish were caught drifting jigs and minnows, all released.

Crappies came in 16 FOW between First and Second point, gills were more scattered.

We didn't try it but the crappies were suspended down about half way, thought about trolling a #5 tail dancer around in front of Westwind on the flats anyone have any luck with this technique, I have caught the crappies on #7's before while eye fishing.

      Sorry dude I tried but this page isn't most active with facebook groups being the biggest way most people share ice thickness in a realtime way.  There's only one way to really know and that's grab a spud bar and start hitting as you walk and drilling holes to see.

      Be looking at these two general areas. Thanks for heads up on south end.

      My son and I fished from 8 - 4 yesterday out of Beacon Harbor.  It was super windy so we couldn't be as mobile.  We caught 6 eyes, all under 17", in about 8' of water and another 10 after we moved out to 11'. Also a few big Perch.  Only 2 fish on dead stick and the rest jigging.  Gold or pink seemed to work the best.  Fun day! Nels

      OK thanks.  I haven’t had an issue yet.  I just got low on powder and needed primers so I decided to try the Blackhorn 209 now.  I remembered reading this post. At the C store there were plenty of Triple 7 and Remington 209 primers in the ML supplies @ 9-10 bucks/100.  The shotgun primers were running running low though and I grabbed the last 100 pack.  They’re only 4 bucks/100.  I figured it would be a cheap experiment if nothing else.

      Not a hundred percent on the age but it's a Frabill Excursion and both are in brand new condition. Not to worried about the weight of it it won't be more than a handful of times of pulling it out before driving my truck out with it. The price difference between the two is what I was looking at.

      Does anyone have any input on the kdrill on a gas auger? I have seen a few people use this setup. Do you need a special adapter to use it?
    • Wanderer
      Are they both the same age?  Equal condition?  Do you hand drag or machine pull?  Weight will matter a lot. You really have to consider how you plan to use the house.  Happiness with the houses performance is the biggest key.   Otherwise it appears to be a trade from a $480 house to a $700 house based on new house prices if I looked at the right Frabil.

      It's not thermal. How's frabill's customer service in case you break a poll or something?
    • going4it
      The only problem I had with my frabill was its weight. It was a tank to pull and tough to put in the bed of the truck.
