      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 .

Upper Prior Report 12/23/06

Just got home from the first ice fishing trip of the year. Started fishing off the island near the public water access on upper Prior (south end) at around 3pm. Brought one of my little guys with, so it wasn't exactly hard core run and gun fishing. tongue.gif Another fisherman came over to borrow my auger due to some trouble with his. When he brought it back he offered me up a couple of very large golden shinners that he caught...yes caught as thanks. I was fishing in 15 FOW with 25 foot just behind me. I decided to drill a hole between me and shore in 10 FOW. I put one of the big golden shinners (7 inch) shocked.gif down under a tip up. We tried several different approaches in the portable with no success. When we decided to pack up...there went the tip up that I had the big shinner on. When I walked up to it, I noticed it wasn't moving. I set the tip up aside and saw the line was way off to one side. After pulling up the slack and feeling a little "weight", I set the hook. There was definitly a big fish on the other end...The first time by the hole I saw that it was a big pike. After a few attempts by her to bail...not to mention cut my hand in two spots by the line flying through it...I iced her. For the first trip of the year I caught a 38.5 inch 14lb 3oz pike. laugh.gif It is funny how one fish can make a otherwise unsuccessful outing one to remember. Especially for my 6 year old that was with. Now he can't wait to go again.

For those of you wondering, there was 6-7 inches of good ice with a little crust layer on top from the rain this week.

Nice fish!

Weird...we were fishing in St. Paul two weekends ago & we also caught golden shiners (a first for me), six-seven inchers. Unfortunaely, putting them on the tip-ups in the same manner yielded nada. grin.gif

We were out this afternoon on a small Eagan lake & there was less ice than I thought there ought to be, 3 1/2 inches. But it was good ice & uniform - still a little short for me to be walking around on. And we caught only a few panfish, nothing on the tip-ups or jigging spoons.
