      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 .

Saturday Night Wind

Recommended Posts

minnesotatuff

the weather reports show west winds at about 5mph starting just before sunset. with it blowing as hard as it has the last couple of days, the baitfish have got to be collected with the walleyes eating...

im writing this in hopes it will motivate me to get up there tomorrow.

i have put in at eddy's the last few times and fished that area. however, in years past i have gotten in on some great bites on the east and northeast side. its been a while though. with circumstances working out the way it looks like it is going to, i would save some travel time by putting in somewhere along the east side... ive got a 1890 warrior and with the low water im more cautious than ever. does anyone know if there is a really good access on the east side with deep enough water for an ol'foughy to navigate into the lake?

so, i know im not putting the boat up. hopefully it will be a few weeks yet for that. but, im still hoping for that little spark to ignite the eternal engine deep down inside.

regards,

minnesotatuff

Mnstuff, I'm heading up also tomorrow night to the east side. I'm going to try Hunters shocked.gif I hope it's deep enough. Agate resort is Ok I stayed there last weekend, but I just called there to book a room and they might be closed. We'll see if they call me back. Other than that it's slim pickens. I have a 2050 Skeeter brand new and I'm nervous also. Nothing like the sound of a rock on the bottom of that glass boat mad.gif There has to be fish just stacked on the East shore after all this west wind.

Good Luck

Skeetman

Guys,I put in out of hunters last week.Its shallow as you head out past the rock barrier,but not impassable.Stay close to the barrier as you pass it and head straight out,it drops off pretty quick.Also,I did see several 2050 skeeters and ranger 620s going out there ,just trim that motor way up for the first 100 yards .youll be fine......Good luck.....

Rodmaker, I went up wtih intentions of putting in at Hunters. Waited for the wind that was suppose to die down Sat night. Never happened so we went and landed at Eddys since the weekend before the wind took allot of out of me. Trolled for a few hours at Indian Point and nothing. Had one of the worst outings of the year with getting to close to the rocks. frown.gif I'll leave it at that.

Talked to a few guys at the landing who bobber fished in 28' of water south of Eddys and did well. We tried that first but never had a bite so we went out to Indian Point.

The people I had talked to at Hunters said they have been doing well trolling.

If the wind is ok I'll try again maybe on Friday night.

Skeetman,

Thanks for the report. I can't find anyone with any results on the East Side. I'll watch your new post. I would like to head up Thurs for the day bite.

18 inch Crappie

Agate, Is closed till winter, talked to the owner last night when we put in. There is a pay box, there were 3 trucks there and he checked the box? No one put the $10 in there. He was so mad.

Very sad that they can use his access but not pay especially when the situation is what it is with very few good spots to land. Hunters is ok but with a west wind blowing in it can be tricky not hitting a rock when you go down between the wave. I wish on Sat night I would have known that he still lets you use the landing even though it's closed I would have landed there.

Skeetman.

so its still ok to use agate as long as you pay? i really am trying hard to make it up there on friday or saturday. ill have to wait to see what the weather situation is going to be for the best place to put in. skeetman, i hope you didnt bottom out that new boat. it sounds like the weeds might be the place to try now. 3 weeks ago they were still tall and not much action. thanks 18 for the pic of your crawdad...similar thinking, sometimes similar luck. as long as the roads arent salty, im not putting the boat up.

Yes Mnstuff you can land at Agate. And yes I did bottom out a little bit. blush.gif Small gouge in bottom however there was scratches from factory that they will have to fix this winter so they will fix this with with it for free. Could have been worse. My kicker prop to the most of it. I'm heading up Thur nite you should try to head up then the wind is suppose to be the calm for the only time this weekend it sounds like. Also snow crazy.gif Who knows with the weatherman. Last weekend was suppose to be calm to! mad.gif

skeetman,

its good news your boat will get fixed by the dealer.

i just checked all the weather and wind sites i have. tomorrow night looks pretty good, but i think friday might be better. thats what im shooting for. ill try to get there and be fishing by 4 or sooner, and stay until midnight or later...you know it just depends...haha.

the temps are cool this time of year, but its not hard to think ahead a couple of months, then realize, its still pretty nice! gotta dress for anything.

good luck to you. im sure we'll run into each other sometime on the lake.

regards,

minnesotatuff

      Be looking at these two general areas. Thanks for heads up on south end.
    • NELS-BELLS
      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
    • Wanderer
      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.
    • FirstIce
      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.
    • icepike 1
      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.

      Anyone else think the number of people ice fishing in the last 5 years has grown greatly in our area? To me it has and to me it seems alot harder now to find a spot of your own, or spots that have been pasted down on a lake that there arnt 5 to 50 people trying to fish! Gps doesn't help the cause either, I wonder what the future of ice fishing and the fish/ crappie population is going to look like in the next 5 to 10 years. Last year kinda shocked me to by the number of people out partying out on cedar and even the sound of subs going by in cars on the ice.. like really??! Could see the look of what is wrong with people from dads and familys out with their kids. Sorry about the rant
    • Bass Thumb
      I found exactly the same thing today. It was a steady 5" walking to the fishing spot. 3" of ice on the spot, if that. Cracks everywhere. Water pushing out of holes I had drilled. Not good.
