      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 .

Is there anyone in the Duluth area that builds a good sturdy fishouse trailer and are reasonably priced? I am looking for a trailer which the wheels can crank up and the house will sit directly on the ice. General size that i'm looking for would be 8x12. Thanks.

Check out Jay Soderbloom out near Cromwell. Just Google his name and you will find lots of info. He makes some really nice light aluminum trailers and houses.

Northern Tool sells trailer frames in Duluth, and Quality fish house frames and houses are sold through Bowe taxidermy. Jay Soderbloom near Cromwell has been great to deal with as well as I have been building mine all summer. That's all I know off for local stuff.

I second what Granny said. Great houses that are light, way warm (Sray foamed) and at a great price.

Actually, yes. My nephew who is a carpenter by trade, was in the market to buy one a couple years ago. He got tired of the so-so construction and poor floor plans of ones made by others, so he made one for himself. Now, he's started building them for others. He got help from his great uncle who was a welder until he retired for the frame. Then, he installed hydraulic lifting axles, an electric panel-inverter with a heater, lights, bunks, radio, rod holders, etc. He put a stove/oven in one too. He's building his 3rd house now, and he's 8 miles north of town. Of course, he'll be after old mossy antlers this weekend, but if you want to drop in to at least look at what he's building now, with no pressure, I'm sure he'd be more than happy to let you look at what he builds. I don't mean to speak for him, but maybe he'd be interested in building one to meet your specs. He enjoys building process, doing it in the evenings after work. He's a relaxed, low key guy.

If you're interested, reply back to this post, or send an e-mail to my home mail, and I'll reply with his phone number.

I'll check back to this next week. I'm off soon to prep for the hunt this weekend too.

My home mail is - evntam AT msn.com - if you put it together right with the @ thing.

I have always had my frames built by "The Fish House Store" in Milaca,Mn. I have not had one problem with them. They have been building wheel shacks & frames for over 18 yrs. They are also the only manufacturer who will back their frames with a 10 yr warranty. I hope this helps you out.

      Pearl Lake has been lights out for crappies in that 10+ inch range this year, finally,  find 13-16 fow and then drill holes until you see suspended fish. When you find them I like a 1/10oz. Swedish pimple (silver/glow) with 2 waxies, keep it above the fish and they’ll come up for it.

      I heard reports Friday of 3-5 inches out of Bayport.

      I'm on vacation until January 2nd if anyone wants to meet up and go fishing let me know I've got all my own gear 95% of the time I fish alone. Willing to drive anywhere or help with gas or what ever. Going to try a local lake in the morning for some eyes and panfish unless someone has any other suggestions. Mostly a CPR guy but it's also nice to occasionally bring some home for the family.

      Still pheasant hunting and still seeing lots of birds!  Went out an afternoon this past week and saw about 75 in 2.5 hours.  Went home with my 3 roosters.  Everything is froze good now so its easy walking and there's fresh snow.

      Welcome to FM, Some lakes near you that are good and have some quality  are Ann,Knife and Fish to the East and the Briggs chain to the West.  Look for green vegetation or mud basin bug hatches for action. 
    • monstermoose78
      Sure helps to find them when you have some of the top panfish anglers around helping

      Good fish Rick way to find some quality fish in a highly pressured area. Takes skill to be able to accomplish that. Maybe run into you one of these days out there
    • IceHawk
      Nice fish guys looked like a good time was had . That lake has some quality for sure. Figured you guys would dial them in.

      Not new to ice fishing but I can't seem to find the fish anymore around my neck of the woods in foley mn. so if anyone could give great insight of lakes times and maybe hints of baits and area of the lake would be awesome.
