      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 .

Everyone that posts here spend a fair amount of time on the river wink.gif. I would like to be able to recognize a few of you when I am out on the water. Most have listed there boat in other posts, but I think a list would help me out.

I will go first:

Green chev extended cab long box with a Triton FS 190. White with black and red accents, Mecury motor, or the same truck with a crestliner fisher-something-or-other 1750? tan. Mercury motor. (neighbor's boat).

honda- does your hound bark like crazy when somebody walks by? I remember a white dog a few weeks ago just eager to get out of the truck and lick me to death.

Yeah he barks but he whines more smirk.gif. Sometimes he whines so much that it annoys the crap out of me. And dont get him started on swimming. He would throw a stick in the water by himself, and go fetch it, just cuz he will get to go swimming.

usually put in at the Hudson launch... blue Yukon. My boat is a Monark King185 but I pulled off all the labels except the "185". Boat is tan/black with a 140 Suzuki. I'm either by myself or with my fishing buddy (son) and a friend or two of his.

18' Tracker Tundra with 135 Opti and a 9.9 Merc kicker. Kind of goldish in color being pulled by the "big black bus", a black Suburban. I'm sure glad the price of gas has come down a bit. Looking at getting into a new Lund 2010 but mama has veto'd that for now. Love the Tundra but the boat control is so much easier with a tiller.

'97 red F-250 reg. cab Powerstroke/ pulling a '84 T-14XL/ 82' 20 horse Johnson. Gotta love having more money in your tackle, rods/ reels, and electrnics than your whole boat is worth.

It's not the rig or the money or necessarily the equipment one has, as it is the knowledge one has of species and area to be fished!

10-4; if you have alot of that knowledge; you don't need any of that! Maybe just some boots, string, and saftey pin or 2. These warm temps make a guy want to get in the boat pretty bad; I can barely wait.

I have a black/grey alumacraft lunker with a 40 hp merc. 16 foot tiller model. Sometimes I have a white Lhasa apso with me. Don't laugh too much grin.gif, she has brought me good luck in the past though. She has been with me when I caught 2 of my biggest walleyes.

      Ice out as far as I could see today, little wind and a cool night tonight. Some wind forecast tomorrow night. It should be fine though. Here is the report   20171119_153600.mp4
    • Fishing Frenzy
      Any ice starting to form again?
    • Dirtyfisheyes
      By the look of the forecast, single digit lows at night and no snow. Should it be safe to say that the first of December would be safe for snow machines? Itching to make the trip. Also any recommendations for lodging would be helpful

      Yesterday Finn and I went hunting for ducks and I should have had 4 mallards and pair of woodies.i hit one woodie and it hit the water as Finn went to get it jumped up and flew away. Next weekend I will try again.

      Second week of December is looking good for southern Minnesota, if the current long range forecasts are close to accurate. Maybe even the first week of the month with a little luck.

      I figured I would start up a new thread for us to use for the winter now that things are starting to set up and guys may be starting to creep out on the bays and smaller water.   I did some more poking around on Pike Bay this morning and I don't have anything much new to report. We've got less than an inch of fluffy snow on the ice and things healed up after the warm front this week. I worked my way from shore out into the middle of the bay and ice was relatively uniform between 5.25 and 5.5 inches of nice clear ice. Earlier this week I checked all landings on the Tower end and everything was iced up except for open water way out in Big Bay appearing to mostly be all West of Birch/Ely islands. Not sure if all the recent strong winds from North and South have changed that status though. I'm still sticking with my original guess of December 2 for my first trip off McKinley on 5 inches.   Good luck this winter to all and Be Safe!

      extended forecasts look good up north. We won't have fish-able ice in the metro until at least the 2nd weed in December assuming no dramatic temp changes. The big Expo is Dec1-3 but temps look promising ~1.5hrs north. I wonder if the ability to go fishing might impact the amount of traffic at the show!
