      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 .

Yep, all the current dates and locations are listed on the bottom of the www.IceLeaders.com homepage.

This year we will not be having competitions, but rather fun get togethers where we'll have experienced guides taking people out on the body of water for a day of fishing. A lot of our Pro Staff will be at the events and it'll be a more laid back atmosphere full of fun and tips! Basically just a chance to fish an outstanding destination and enjoy a day on the ice with fellow anglers! smile.gif

I hope that I can make it to a couple of ICE events this year. I would love to go out with some guys who could pass on some of their ice fishing IQ. It never ceases to amaze how much people on this site know about fishing and equipment.

Rey- your more than welcome at the events... and many of us prostaff pick up as many tricks as we give away at these events! So we have just as much fun as the rest!

I got a bunch of the events marked off on my calendar already!

I just wasn't one of the locations that someone was willing to host. Nothing against the destination, as we all know LOW is a phenomenal winter fishery.

However, this doesn't mean we can't have one on LOW. All of these IceLeader events are Get Togethers and are non-competitive, so anyone is open to host an event.

If you want to host an event on LOW let me know and we can set some dates and locations...

mnfishinguy Keep your eyes peeled for a LOW trip on the LOW forum. There will probably be some kind of get together this winter. It will probably be rather informal. I know we did a get together last year in early Dec. There were less people there than I expected to see but those of us that were there had a good time. Ok lets see for me the fun started with a frozen transmission after hitting a slush hole. A broken GPS after thawing out my tranny. A hole in my brand new fish house. Oh well the cost of fun right.

I don't know the reason for sure. But I tell you one thing that the get togethers can be lots of fun without having to have competion involved. Some people will shy away from entering contest but will come to get togethers. I am not sure of their reasoning because I have fun either way. I myself was kind of disappointed that there wasn't a larger turn out last year for the Lake of the Woods contest.

I guess my 2 cents is definitely because of the turn out.

I've been going to all these I.C.E. events for the last 3 years now and it just seamed like less and less people even though the prizes and giveaways were getting better and better. Last year at Lake of the Woods, top 3 prizes were a Marcum flasher, NilsMaster auger, and an Otter ice shack along with all sorts of other great prizes in a random drawing from Todays Tackle, Scenic Tackle, Stone Legacy, Arctic Fisherman, etc, etc. Pretty much everyone walks away with something and thats the way it has been for years now!

Most of us that help out at these events are doing it on a volunteer basis. We love to ice fish, we love talking ice fishing, and we love helping out fellow anglers as well.

We are going to continue to do that but the competition factor will be eliminated. There are a great number of events spread around the state this winter so hopefully there is one that is within a short drive for some anglers to attend.

Northlander they were waiting for you to confirm dates when we first started talking about dates in July. I know you said it was weather dependant because of early ice.

      Here is the latest....it is changing quite a bit and the water is cooling off.  Check it out while you make your plan for Labor Day

      I have a few spots that I check but if you just go slow and keep your eye on the depth finder the schools of fish are scattered everywhere.  If you see fish, you will catch em

      Fish Lake Baits in Harris had some nice large leeches a couple of weeks ago. Cliff

      After 4 days on a Rainy lake houseboat we managed a walleye fry 3 nights. They where on the deeper mid lake reefs which is no secret, but they wanted minnows. That was the hard part, finding bigger minnows. To my surprise I was able to land a few each afternoon on 5" plastic rigged. 2 boats, 6 people, 47 eyes where clicked biggest 24", smallest 6" and every stop in between. We did fish some bays and the pike were willing to play!city

      The OP was given the system by someone else who was having problems with it. @TNFL If the above statement is correct, try it on your system and see if the fuse blows.  The problem may have been on the other person's rig.   Is it worth contacting the manufacturer for tech help or sending in for testing/service?
    • Wheres_Walter
      Sunday and Monday we caught lots of 15-16" fish at 12-14 FOW.  All on Chartruese jigs with half a crawler.   A couple in the high teens and one 21" as well.  
    • Wanderer
      Leeches are somewhat seasonal and not as prevalent later in the open water season (now).  It's the nature of the bait. Vados would be my first call between the Cities and Mille Lacs but you could always try calling a few shops on the southern side of the lake.

      Back in the old days..... before I retired and we used to come up labor day, I used to fish steep breaks into deep water.  My favorite spot was the north/west tip of Schmidts Island.   There is a little flat than breaks into like 40 feet out in front, more or less, of the dock that goes with the little chalet style cabin.   There are probably other spots along that headolakes shore of the island that are good, so check it out with modern electronics.   I don't know if that area is still working or not.   Jigging raps might work there.  I used a rig with a pretty heavy sinker so I could tip toe over the rocks up and down the break.   Caught what was my PB walleye for a long time on that spot.   Neighbor got a 30 incher somewhere along there.  This is all historical, so maybe not much help anymore.  BTW I typically fished there in the evening.   Never really tried it during the day.
