      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 .

I think first measurable ice on fish lake would be more interesting. I also think the prize should be non-alcohol related so our under 21 FMers can jump in.

just a suggestion.

(I agree Quick. Northlander)

Ok, no problem. But I preffer snow on the ground before ice gets made...then a period of no snow with good cold weather to make good clear ice.

How about a six pack of "beverage of winners choice"

I hope we have a little of the white stuff on the ground for rifle opener. I will be optimistic and say Nov. 1, but then we don't need any until we get that good blue ice going so I can start chasing lakers and crappies. Also can't have freeze up be too early though so I can still duck hunt in Nov. I'm a hard guy to please!

work for the weather in DSM iowa,,,--- you will get snow and measureable at that--- maybe a inch or two-- as even Iowa will get some frozen mix come thurs. The ground is still warm-- but with temps in the 20's,, it will gather on grassy areas etc. Thurs-Fri it may not climb above 32F as far south as Hinkley-Brainerd- line.

Could change--- but right now this air mass is looking pretty cold mid-OCT.

I still doubt what we get around here will be "Measurable". I think the ground is still too warm to let what we get sit around too long.

Heck I still have to mow my grass 1 last time. mad.gif

Yeah, I do too, just to mulch the leaves. I don't rake. The way I figure it, if God didn't want 'em on the ground, he wouldn't have put them there.

I still say we only get 1-2" and none of it will stay long at all. It will be too wet. Now Ashland and south could get hammered.

      Any new ice reports?  Looking For s something about Nicholas or strand
    • rundrave
      what if you pull a wheel house to Mn from out of state or are a non resident?
    • Hoey
      I am noodling this same concept over.  I am thinking either a dedicated (portable) battery, since I may be pulling on shore to the ice with the 4-wheeler or a hand, boat-type winch, not always hooked up to the truck.

      Wow that is great to know.  Thanks for sharing.  Nothing like learning the laws from a CO on the lake.
    • birdguy
      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.
