      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 .

Fishermans Inn?

I might go there in the next 2 days. What's biting there and any ideas of what to use? After work, 3pm.

Honestly Ron, I think that it might be a waste of time. I tried it last week and never marked a fish in 1.5 hours. Plus I drive by occasionally since its kinda on my way home and I haven't seen anyone out there. I'd either try the high banks or just above the (Contact Us Please), possibly to the left of the public ramp by the pondy, or the steps. I cannot speak on the thickness of the ice at any of those spots though, because I haven't fished them, but those are areas that have produced in the past.

Ron- The highbanks are about smack dab in the middle between the ponderosa campground, and Fisherman's Inn actually probably closer to the Ponderosa. The highbanks are a loooooooooong haul from either maybe half hour walk w/ shack? Too long for me anyway. But the other three places I mentioned are within 150 yds. of the public access by the ponderosa. To get to the ponderosa from Roch. take 52 to Co. Rd. 12 and then a left on I believe its Co. Road 27. and then follow the signs to Grandpa Eds. and you'll see the DNR access on your left. I've seen a map of the Zum on here before so I'm sure somebody will link to it, and that will help a bunch. Good luck!!

The ice is driveable from grandpa eds out to the high banks area. The night bite out there on that lake is very tough though.

Probably a little too early yet for the Fishermans bite. I spent a couple hours there Sun Am and only had a couple dink perch to show for it.

That spot can heat up when there is a little more current flowing past that point. It creates a bit of an eddy and that seems to bring in the pannies. with this wrm weather she might just be ready to heat up though...give it a couple more days and see what happens. Might be just right.

The ice to the left of the pondy ramp was around 10 inches on Saturday. Didn't catch anything, but I didn't have any electronics either.

      Ice out as far as I could see today, little wind and a cool night tonight. Some wind forecast tomorrow night. It should be fine though. Here is the report   20171119_153600.mp4

      Any ice starting to form again?

      By the look of the forecast, single digit lows at night and no snow. Should it be safe to say that the first of December would be safe for snow machines? Itching to make the trip. Also any recommendations for lodging would be helpful

      Yesterday Finn and I went hunting for ducks and I should have had 4 mallards and pair of woodies.i hit one woodie and it hit the water as Finn went to get it jumped up and flew away. Next weekend I will try again.

      Second week of December is looking good for southern Minnesota, if the current long range forecasts are close to accurate. Maybe even the first week of the month with a little luck.

      I figured I would start up a new thread for us to use for the winter now that things are starting to set up and guys may be starting to creep out on the bays and smaller water.   I did some more poking around on Pike Bay this morning and I don't have anything much new to report. We've got less than an inch of fluffy snow on the ice and things healed up after the warm front this week. I worked my way from shore out into the middle of the bay and ice was relatively uniform between 5.25 and 5.5 inches of nice clear ice. Earlier this week I checked all landings on the Tower end and everything was iced up except for open water way out in Big Bay appearing to mostly be all West of Birch/Ely islands. Not sure if all the recent strong winds from North and South have changed that status though. I'm still sticking with my original guess of December 2 for my first trip off McKinley on 5 inches.   Good luck this winter to all and Be Safe!

      extended forecasts look good up north. We won't have fish-able ice in the metro until at least the 2nd weed in December assuming no dramatic temp changes. The big Expo is Dec1-3 but temps look promising ~1.5hrs north. I wonder if the ability to go fishing might impact the amount of traffic at the show!
