      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 .

Well after a crazy weekend of fishing. This is what ended up on my Buckshot Rattle Spoon, Light rod. and 4lb. Test.

These kinds of fish are what it is all about. Put your time in........Find your own spots......be patient and you will be blessed with memories for life. wink.gif

This is why I throw back all of those other upper 20's fish. It makes so much of a difference in every inch. She was giant. It was an extemely tense few minutes while we were trying to position the head up an 8 inch hole. She finally gave me the position and came up the hole with no room to spare.

31' Guessing some where around 12 lbs. IMG_0246-1.jpg

Couldn't be more excited. smile.gif

Congrats PBC! Did she come out of Pike's? I've been watching your posts for the past year. I'm also an Iowan that loves to visit Cass Lake. We fish Pike's regularly. Could that be a 4 lb test record for wally's? You might want to check it out! Again Congrats!!! smile.gif

Congratulations! That is truly the fish of of a lifetime. I've been stuck in the upper 20's and had just about given up on getting a 30+, but you have restored my hope. Soooo... did you soak the Rattle Spoon in the Coke or the Coors Light? wink.gif If I were you I would contact Northland and see if they would at least give you some tackle, maybe something more, as a promo.

Thanks Guys.

There are more of them for sure Labs. They just are not fooled by baits that often. Glad one bit on mine. smile.gif

With all the upper 20's that I have seen thrown back and heard from others that have done the same, there is a great chance that sometime you will tie in to one also.

You could also consider tossing the lure in the mouth of it, like I did...tossed the rapala Husky Jerk in the mouth, just to finish off the mount. Just an idea. Once agian, great fish.

Why is it that, despite my 40 years of fishing, I never get a walleye that size?? Life is not fair. Oh well, I bet you never caught a salmon or a Laske Trout grin.gif. Nice walleye

      Went out this morning and walked around and drilled a few holes.   Found between 3-6" of ice.   The areas that did not open up had 6" of good ice.    the open water areas had almost 3".   All areas are open to walking.   Some could be 4 wheeler ready by the weekend but only of you know where the fist ice is! With that being said I would still avoid these areas: Winter access to west to far shoreline and anything north of that line. summer access Anything within 200 yards of the meth hole. any last open water.     Be careful,   Don

      Well, people live all over this state and I live 4 hours away. I'm also 54 years old and have been ice fishing for a half century. Was asking a simple question with a simple answer needed. Thanks. Please someone report if they can.

      looks like 3 so far.  anybody else up for this? 
    • Chill62
      Sorry dude I tried but this page isn't most active with facebook groups being the biggest way most people share ice thickness in a realtime way.  There's only one way to really know and that's grab a spud bar and start hitting as you walk and drilling holes to see.

      Be looking at these two general areas. Thanks for heads up on south end.

      My son and I fished from 8 - 4 yesterday out of Beacon Harbor.  It was super windy so we couldn't be as mobile.  We caught 6 eyes, all under 17", in about 8' of water and another 10 after we moved out to 11'. Also a few big Perch.  Only 2 fish on dead stick and the rest jigging.  Gold or pink seemed to work the best.  Fun day! Nels

      OK thanks.  I haven’t had an issue yet.  I just got low on powder and needed primers so I decided to try the Blackhorn 209 now.  I remembered reading this post. At the C store there were plenty of Triple 7 and Remington 209 primers in the ML supplies @ 9-10 bucks/100.  The shotgun primers were running running low though and I grabbed the last 100 pack.  They’re only 4 bucks/100.  I figured it would be a cheap experiment if nothing else.

      Not a hundred percent on the age but it's a Frabill Excursion and both are in brand new condition. Not to worried about the weight of it it won't be more than a handful of times of pulling it out before driving my truck out with it. The price difference between the two is what I was looking at.

      Does anyone have any input on the kdrill on a gas auger? I have seen a few people use this setup. Do you need a special adapter to use it?
