      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 .

Can you still get a boat out or all the bays iced up?

All of the small bays are iced over.

A few have been going out from KcKinley Park landing, but still have to break some ice, and the landing ramp is very icy!

Cliff, are the smaller lakes frozen up as well?

I currently have nobody in your kneck of the woods sending in ice reports. If anybody is interested in giving vermilion or any other lake in the area I would really appreciate it.

Thanks

airjer,

I have not checked the smaller lakes, but have to assume that they are iced over. NOT SAFE though!!

I have been driving by several small lakes on the way to deer hunting spots. Some of them have a very light skim of ice others are still open with just the bays skimmed over

This has been a very strange year for ice. Black Bay has been trying to freeze up for about 3 weeks now. The ice is still very unsafe. Normally, by the time the main lake skims over as it did this Sunday, Black Bay is very solid. There was only skim ice in some areas of the Partridge River Narrows yesterday afternoon. Be careful!!!

It is supposed to get into the mid 40's to low 50's the next couple of days so most of the ice that we have here will be gone or weakened badly. frown.gif

Well just to update everyone again. Out in front of Shamrock we have 3-4 inches of ice. However, down at the end of bradley road. There is no even 2 inches. Was gonna try to sneak out there to see if anything was biting but not enough there yet. With these temps this week I will probably be fishin off fectos by this weekend. Can't wait.

If this weather would make up its mind it would help. Maybe I should just keep saying I am going hunting or something. That would probably do the trick!!!

Cliff, When we were up last weekend in front of our place the shoreline was still open, and out front of that there was only about an inch of ice. If you go out needless to say you be careful. Even "Aqua Man" would have a tough time with the current water temps. Thanks again for the food. Will have the steaks this weekend. Later, Darrell.

According to the weather channel for Cook\Tower: After today, the temps won't get above freezing for at least the next 10 days with lows in the single digits on most nights. It won't be long now!

      Nice! That looks like a good time.

      Let us know how it goes. I have a cabin on Linwood just off Whiteface. Be nice to find good spots in the area, seeing as for whatever reason I never fish Linwood...

      What a morning jigging on one of the best, fastest bites of the summer for me Tuesday morning of this week.  I had a guide trip but they cancelled that morning and I almost stayed on shore. Since I had the boat in the water and everything was set I went out by myself to check out a couple of spots.  I didnt get very far    
    • jj56342
       Anyone have any good news or been up there lately waz up  over the Fourth of July did OK nothing to brag about a few walleyes  or any other lakes around the area not looking for hotspots or nothing trying to catch a few panties
    • jj56342
      OK thank you thinking about going up first week in September
    • proguide
      Low water continues to be the issue on the Red. Below the dams still remains sketchy so use boats at your own risk.  The fishing remains stable, similar to last week in that the fish are spread out but in the holes in the middle of the river.  Short 15-20 minute sits on spots keeping the bait fresh looking for the active catfish.
        Bait is still heavy to frogs and frozen suckers with goldeyes working some but it seems that frog and sucker are the best.  As water cools down I suspect fresh sucker will come into play as well.

      I used to have many fields but some guides came in and pay for the fields. I am down to 3 farms but they don't have any small grains this year. So I am going to take the early season off. As I know the geese will use some ponds to rest and I have access to them so I will wait until the regular season to pick off a few geese.
    • Cheers
      get a guide for a day
