      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 .

The bite was great yesterday. Myself and another guy pulled 12 fish. 1-15" the rest were 17" to 19". If you can handle the weather you should catch fish. We were jigging with shiners in 14 to 17 ft. We fished from 2:30 to 6:30, bite was pretty steady during day with a flurry of activity at sundown.

If you can handle the weather the fishing has been really good. We have caught nice fish in as shallow as 4ft and as deep as 20 ft. The shallow bite has mainly been a night bite.

Jason or Beer Bat, were either of you out last night? I was out from about 6-8. Caught a lot of 12-13in fish. When you guys did so well were you catching these too? I did manage a couple keeper fish. I'm not complaining it's nice to see the little ones just a lot of dipping your hand in 40 some deg water.

Unfortunately, I'm done for the open water season. Boats are now stored away, so I was not out last night. We did get a lot of smaller fish, but weeding through produced some eaters.

Went out on Waska this afternoon, a fair number of boats, had to watch for some ice still left. My partner and I picked up 4 walleyes. Will continue until hard ice up. Lots of divers on the lake.

I was surprised how the lake refroze last nite. Forget about the starbuck marina for 06, perhaps can get boat in by Waters Edge, we are putting in at Glenwood beach, but even today at noon it is a maybe deal.

Sunday afternoon the DNR access was frozen up so we tried the beach access, but it was too shallow for my boat with a bunk trailer. I wouldn't try getting in unless you have a small boat with a roller trailer. If we get a little wind with this warmer weather the DNR access should open back up though.

Fished Waska this afternoon great day. Me and a buddy put 9 fish in the boat, rookied up on about 7 other bites. Fish ran 16" to 23", shiners and jigs in 17 to 20 feet,we were the only boat on the lake, hopefully weather holds out this week so I can do it again this weekend.

About one more year and you will no longer have to consider yourself a rookie.Most of catch enough during the summer when their harder to catch,so we can go hunting in the fall instead of fishing.JUST KIDDING. give a call you've got my number.

      @river rat316 is turning into a walleye guy Boo!  Just let me know when you want to fish for gills again.
    • crappie king 42
      Moose is right. We fish the same area and all those lakes were sketchy with old sheets of ice and lots of open/skim ice. I have not been out this week but vetween my brother and friends i have heard the ice is all getting stronger. Idk if ive ever seen lakes freeze like this. Plus snow everyday makes it scary when u cant see the ice. No mater what dont go alone and just because u see people out there dont mean the ice is good. Lots of circumstanes this year where u have 6 inches in one spot and 5 feet away there is one inch

      Out of the north west part of the lake yesterday, found anywhere from 5-8 inches of ice.  Close to a few pressure ridges there was less than 3 inches.  There are a lot of patches of rough ice and pressure ridges so be careful.  Saw several places where spearer's were set up where they pushed the ice block under the ice and did not mark their holes, please people be cautions.

      Here's the scoop, Buddy Hillmen is now allowing 1/2 ton trucks with single axle wheel houses.. Also any size wheel house pulled by wheeler or side by side. Drive slow there's a bridge plate about a mile out. Do not try and cross berm to the south of road. I have all ready seen a couple tracks where they did not make it through. be safe use commom sense and enjoy such a grand lake. On a side note. Last weekend a small fish house was set up about 200 yards from me. Sunday I was driving by and noticed a plastic bag so I stopped to pick it up. It was pushed down into the augured hole and turned out to be a bag of poop. From now on I will be taking random pics of wheel houses and if I find that kind of crap again I will be reporting to dnr and expect a possible ticket in the mail.

      Some are fishing it.   But the winds kept parts open till Monday.  Be cautious as you go.  Ice thickness really varies.
