      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 headed up this weekend. I'm planning to make my weekly saturday night run. I'm hoping it won't be my last. Did anyone get a water temp. the last couple of nights. My guess is it may be back up to 40 degrees.

A guy I fish with a lot up there is going to fish tomorrow (Thursday) night, but kids and work are going to keep me at home. If I hear anything interesting I'll post it.

Nope we were all done at by 11pm. I was out the last 3 nights and have to work. This fishing wears on a guy.

As far as you guys looking for tips. We cought almost all our fish when the wind picked up and the moon was out from behind the clouds.

There have been nights when I get no fish. But by putting in your time and looking for new spots and not going where everyone else is pays off.

PieEyed - That may have been me. We were loading up about that time. Talked with someone there for a couple seconds. We had the 16' alumacraft behind the white suburban.

Amen to not catching any fish until the moon came out. We fished from 4:15 until 9:05 with one pike to show for it. Then caught 4 fish in 45 minutes. Then also found out that they only hit the bait as we traveled in one direction tongue.gif. So, we wasted a good 45 minutes before we wound up just trolling one way and then running back up and starting over. Throw that 45 minutes out and we caught 10 fish in about 3 hours. Still not great, but not bad. All ours came on clown or purple perch #10HJ's. Biggest was 27", next was 25.5". The 27" was our last fish. Hard to leave the water on that, but it was getting late and real windy.

Gerty, that was me. We were frying up our keepers at the access. It's something about eating Hot walleye in the cold, it's the best! Are you going this weekend at all?

I'm thinking of trying up by Malmo tonight? I haven't been up there this year yet, how's the access?

Anyone have another general area that they think would be worth trying?

Thanks

PieEyed - I thought that was a bag of shore lunch you had in your hands grin.gif. I should have stuck around!! I am chasing the elusive 30 pointer this weekend smile.gif. I think my fishing is done for the year except for maybe a trip to the river. Had to put a new water pump in my motor when I got back the other night. I am glad the water temp was cold to help keep her cool that night.

I have not launched by Malmo at all, so I can't help you there. Good luck if you go.

I winterized my boat Sun. Had water coming out for a while, then it stopped. Is it a big job to do??? Cost to get it done ???? (any idea??) I'll see what happens next Spring when I start it up.

Paul has mentioned on different posts that malmo was too shallow for his liking. Maybe Red Door or Barnacle Bills??

      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
    • monstermoose78
      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

      Hey, I resemble that remark!!   Plus my wife only went fishing with me once the whole time that we have been married and she brought a book! I got her trained in right away. Sorry about your training problem!

      Ok but with all those Trout. Bring a tow rope as I may be stuck in the slush!
