      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 .

A cold clear night gave way to a sunrise with ice.

Not everyone is happy about it. grin.gif Going out for the last hurrah on Sag today. That just might do it for the season as the ice is forming on my lake in the shallow bays. I was hoping to get in at least one day of fishing in November. smirk.gif

That picture made my day. I have been following the weather near Grand Marais just hoping that it would stay cool enough to make ice. It looks like my wish may come true. I just love the first ice walleyes.

Well, it was just a shot in the dark. Looks like the landing on caribou on the other shore. I didnt even think about facing east.

Nice picture by the way. I wouldn’t mind having some good ice right after deer season.

Long lake is private correct?

I just looked at my new St. Louis County fishing map guide, by Sportsman’s Connection. And from Caribou lake rd that would be facing north. I was way off. shocked.gif

Speaking of the fishing map guide. This updated book is great, allot of great information. Also a little more detail than the last version. It has even more information and tips from tackle shop owners and guides on specific lakes. I can’t forget to mention, updated stocking information too. I would recommend this guide to any one from beginners to the pro's.

Yes Long is a private lake. No fish in there either. wink.gif

You must be talking about the new Sportsman's Connection map books. Your right they are great books. I have an old one and was looking at their site the other day. Updated books and with 170 lake maps for St Louis county plus lake information. I use the Navionics chip in my H20c but still find the Sportsman's Connection book useful. You can see them here.

      First ice fishing trip today out of morson ontario .  Fishing  was a little slow got a few walleyes and a couple of crappies . Lost what little  snow we had today made the ice really  slippery. Found 9 to 11 inches of ice.

      Dang Curt, did you take my suggestion on a drone?  Great report.

      Well, I have to pay for registration on my boat trailer to run it on the road, and the boat to run it on the lake, why shouldn't wheel houses?  I guess I don't feel bad for the wheel house guys.

      No not yesterday. 2 weeks ago when we had that first cold spell I went out on Baxter, Blue and Long and checked the ice. They were locked up but only had 1-2" inches so didn't venture out too far. Baxter probably was walkable but had open water on the back end so figured I stay off. Last Sunday I went and checked them out after that warm rainy week we had and they had open water, so yesterday I skipped checking them and went farther north. But I did notice most lakes were locked up on the drive up there. Cant wait for the local lakes to get some decent ice!

      Wondering if big sandy is clear enough to spear fish when the ice comes on? Never done it before and would like to give it a try

      Bryan did you check any lakes around me?
    • Bryan P
      Had to scratch the ice fishing itch, so I drove up north to the Mille Lacs lake area and found a smaller lake with 4-5" of ice. Punch a few holes and found some crappies and sunnies. Nothing big but was fun time and a great way to start my ice seaso n! Bring on the ice!  Check out the video: https://youtu.be/BTTv_G07PB8
