      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 .

Anyone still using their fishing boats in the St. Cloud area?

Well I spent the MEA break up on the Cass Lake chain fishing with freinds and family with good results. I've talked to a few guys in the St. Cloud area who are still getting out and having good success on the walleyes.

It's really getting to be crunch time for me. I need to get some stuff done in prep for deer season but want to get in one more trip to the lake. I need to get some seafoam mix through my motor before I put it away. I could do this in my yard but would be letting a fishing opportunity get away if I did that. wink.gif

Is there anyone still out there fishing and having some success? laugh.gif

the river has been good and steady by Sartell. Walleyes have been banging the sucker minows like a screen door in a hurricane.

Borch, like you my time has been crunched and had to make the hard decision last week and put the boat in storage.

Now I'm just counting down the days until we have safe ice to get the trap out and punch that first hole!

I drained the tank yesterday and am putting the boat away this weekend. This is one of the earliest years that I have put it away.

Just don't have the enthusiasm this year.

Nothing wrong with that, just bottle it up and let it explode for ice-fishing!

A lot depends on how deer season goes and the weather. My last trip was a bust but it's still great to get out. Who knows, maybe one more trip. wink.gif

Going to drop a line in horseshoe today on the way to the marina. Tried to take it out last Saturday but the lake was half frozen. Oh well, gives me one last chance before I start renting the cabin to the ice-fishermen and snowmobiliers.

I know a guy who is still doing pretty well on the chain. Good Luck when you get out.

I got up there a little late and it was a bit windy for a 28' pontoon boat so I just brought it over to Richmond Marine for the winter. Any ice fishing tips for the winter up there? I was thinking about buying a snowmobile for the ice fishermen who might rent the cabin. Is it worth it on the chain or too dangerouse because of the current?

As you know ice is never safe at any given time. With that being said, plenty of areas on the chain are snowmobile accessible. I would really caution the bottle neck areas and the main river channels.

Away from that, many of the locals use it and I haven't heard any problems the last several year. However if someone didn't know those areas I've listed above, I'd be a little leary about them being on the ice during the evening.

      I just purchased the Humminbird Autochart Pro to use wth my Humminbird 999. After going through the 'installation guide' and the 'get started guide' that's included in the Autochart PC program, I can't find what I need to do to get this on my model Humminbird. Anyone have experience? Thanks, Paul

      Did well this morning on big bay with gold spinners. 24-26 feet off the edge of a reef. Decided since they were biting we'd try the west end to see if we could catch some big fish. Put up a big zero out there. Guess they behave a bit different from end to end.  On a small reef out west had a guy pull up on us, throw a marker right on the fish and camp out right there. Kind of tough to fish spinners when someone does that. What is the etiquette on this lake when someone does that? Just fish where you want even if you run right up on them or in between them and the marker? I see the thousand dollar  depthfinder in the back of the boat, just mark a waypoint and keep the marker in the boat man. Really grinds my gears. Whoops...sorry for the rant   Never had that happen on the east end though

      Coming up next weekend to pull up the docks for the last time. Yup, my brother-in-laws folks sold their place on Frazer Bay. They owned the beautiful place just west of the public boat landing.They are in their 80's and are going to stay put at their place on Arizona. Been coming up for 20 years and now I won't have a free place to vacation at. Going to have to do some surfing for rentals I guess. Anyways, how has the walleye fishing been? Guess the weather will be quite a bit cooler next week.  Thanks for all the help over the years!

      Not at all a typical fall this year; more like a July lately. When the weather cools down next week fish will again start to set up in their cold weather locations. The last two weeks I have found fish (walleyes) along thick green cabbage and coontail edges,  deep basin transitions along steep breaks, and also suspended over deep water chasing forage.  One thing that remains constant during this time of year, regardless of temp., is that the days are getting shorter and the weeds are dying. Key in on the remaining green weeds, if your targeting shallow fish, and utilize your electronics to find schools of baitfish in deep water, either free roaming basins, or just off steep breaks. Lots of patterns going on right now that are putting fish in the boat. HAVE FUN!
