      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 .

Tip-up ?

Recommended Posts

New to Minnesota and was reading over the rules of the one hook deal or two lines in the winter. I understand one hook here in MN so what does everyone here use on their tip-ups. I'm use to a treble hook on a big sucker for northerns in MI. Thanks for the help and good luck to all.

You need at least a bead or a spinner or something above the treble. Lots of discussion on it in the regular Ice Fishing forum, and they know more than me, but if you put a single bead above your treble you should be fine.

Take Box's advice and find the tipup/treble hook thread on the ice fishing forum page. (I found it but haven't figured out how to post a link to it for you.) Lots of discussion about that very item. Some new confusing laws or definitions apparently have gone into effect and it has even the Conservation Officers confused. Sounds like some special rules are being drafted to address the confusion. Read the thread and decide how much you want to risk it. The bead/blade thing may not be legal at the moment, even though historically it has been.

I would consult with the CO that is in charge of the area you are going to fish. Quick stricks rigs were legal last year , but as of now it is being discussed at the state level. Yes, ones with a bead and blade were legal before but for this year it could get you ticketed. Sounds like next year they may be fine again.

Well after reading all the info on Harvey's link I am even more confussed. How is the average person to know this if it isn't in the printed rules and if it isn't printed how can there be any enforcement either way. As a military policeman for twelve years and enforcing both road rules and game rules on military posts, a judge can not enforce the tickets without a written rule and the ticket would be thrown out. I guess we will see when the new booklet comes out.

Thanks for all the advice and help. Dave

if you want to use a treble hook it needs to be attached to a jig under a tip up something like a swedish pimple

      ripped out some old boards that were well past their prime on my boat.  Any recomendations on what to replace them with?  They looked to be treated plywood but wondering if getting something different would work better.  Such as a piece of 1 x 12 pine and throwing a few coats of polyurethane on it as well?  The boards I am talking about are for the benches.   Also, replacing the seats in there as well.  Previous i had the the vinyl foam seats.  When shopping around i am seeing a lot of the molded plastics chairs.  Any preference out there for durability?  Vinyl rips but wondering if the molded crack or break?   Thanks for any feed back!

      The flocks of geese are now flying over my house in the morning and evening, but when this happens Finn gets all jacked up. Like right now he is nudging me and running pawing at the window. A few minutes earlier when the first gaggle few over I was going to change the laundry and Finn raced down and sat by gun safe  whining.  Fishing reports have been great for crappies on the area lakes. Walleyes are not biting as well in lakes but when the rum is clearer that is the place to be. Bears any no quota hunters this might be your year to get a bear around here.  Deer seem to every where drive carefull.  Seeing some ducks flying around.  I have seen a few grouse and pheasants.

      I've been by a time or two trying to figure out which place is yours.   I was out on wakemup last night too.   Got nothing, on crawlers.  Started out at merry go round, went to "picnic island" (little island east/south of taylors).  rigged along edge of those two humps in like 18-25 feet.   Musky guys were coming so I turned.  They turned too, chunking baits in the vicinity of my boat.   Then some guys in a pontoon pulled up and anchored in front of me  and threw out bobbers.   Fished a while longer, and it was getting sort of dark so went home.   Weird.  I've been on those humps a bunch of times this year, and suddenly I get company.   And, even though it is a pretty big area they gravitated to where I was.  I'll be out today too, so if you need help with supervision, let me know.    But I will drive by to check out the new construction.

      Been getting a few on the weed line, early am when there's a little breeze, since the surface temps started coming down. That was about this month's full moon, for me. A very slow troll, fishing vertically, & just a 1/16 oz. jig.
