      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 .

Re; I Can't Believe Its Last Weekend of Walleye, Pike Fishing :(

Well,

Its that time of year when we have to quit ice fishing for the walleyes, get the perms off the lake. frown.gif

But hey, look at the bright side!!! Its only 79 days till opener!!!!!!!:))))))

Went out to the flats yesterday afternoon into the evening with my good buddy PW (Paul Waldowski) and his son Alex (who is one cool dude!)and my good friend (Jon)who helps us on the ice at Appeldoorn's Sunset Bay Resort.

We did pretty desent. By no means setting the world on fire or want everyone to think the "Bite Is On!!!". We got 6 fish in 3 hours. Some nice eaters.

Seen a lot of fish("customers" as PW AND Deitzer say) on the graf but they just wouldn't buy anything we offered. And we were offering them just about eveything. The best was a gold and red small "Buckshot" or a blue Varmit tipped with a minnow head.

The walleye's are mostly going in the evening still. A few are being caught during the day under low light conditions. Most of the walleyes are being caught either on a dead stick or like we fished yesterday jiggin. Rainbows, Shiners and Fatheads are still doing well. Also a small jig with worms and larva.

Talked with a number of resorts this morning and everyone is catching fish. As the story has been all year, not a lot of fish but some really big fish are being caught. There has been some changing ice conditions on the lake. Some good size cracks have opened and it seems to have some different bridges going out. With the warmer weather and the winds today, there may be some more changes. I'll try to keep everyone posted.

Right now from Big point going out to the gravel and Three Mile the crack has opened up in a few areas. Please be careful in these areas. I know that there was some cracks near Liberty and Hunters Point that their ice crews have worked their butts off to fix these areas. These guys deserve a lot of credit to help all of you get to your destinations on Mille Lacs. Thanx Guys!!!

I know that I say this repeatedly, but, please check with the resorts before going out on the lake. As today we are expected to see 25 to 30mph winds and warmer temps.

Although we have been getting perch off the reef at Sunset Bay others are getting perch out in deeper water still. With this warmer weather and the days getting longer again, I would start to look for those perch to start moving into the bays and shallower water within the next week or two to spawn.

Remember,The Big Perch Extravaganza sponsored by Johnson's Portside Bait is this weekend! This event is BEING HELD at Nitti's Hunters Point Resort. I was there having breakfast this morning and they are getting all setup for this big event. You don't want to miss this one! Lots of great prizes and a great time! Call Nittis Hunters Point or Johnson's Portside Bait for details.

For all those who are coming up for this weekend and need a fish house or cabin to rent call your favorite resort here on Mille Lacs and get your reservations in asap. They are filling up fast for this Perch Extravaganza Event!

I want to let everyone know that the best perch fishing is still to come. The month of March should be a great time to get some Jumbo's in the bays. Again make sure you call your favorite resort on Mille Lacs and reserve a cabin for some awesome perch fishing in March!!!

Hope to see you all up here on the Big Pond this weekend!

P.S. Check out Ron Shara's Minnesota Bound this Sunday Night on Kare 11

Fish On!!!

      The wife and I were up to L O W  for whole week. Great weather, good fishing and fun time. Was able to fish 7 days split up between Morris point, Long point and the river. For me Long point was the better bite. May have seen a couple members of outdoors Mn on Tuesday out of LP. Let me know if I'm right. Also met member from Wisc. at Morris point( real good guy) Anyway didn't seem to matter much what color jig caught them on every color with frozen shiner. Some days were better then others but always caught fish. Ate several meals of fish and brought fish home. Also caught a 14 in perch that I brought into taxidermist. Plan on going back at least one more time this fall . ( Too good not to).

      Got some grouse and saw some nice coveys. The biggest was 6 birds but found couple groups of 5. That is always fun.

      we mainly jigged fatheads in front of their mouths. 2 weeks ago also and tried a few different times over 3 days this trip. water is still crazy low so I don't think many boats will be using access. Also tried a couple different plastics and some gulp. Probably ready to go crazy up there soon.  Last year at this time it was really good. Might get there once more before ice time but not sure.

      Been thinking about breaking out the Jiggin Raps, might have to give that a shot. It's been too crowded out there this weekend with MEA going on.

      Sounds good! May an oversized deer with obscenely large antlers find its way to you!

      Well the weather was pretty crappy but the fish were biting...Had to sort through but kept some for dinner. Caught a variety today, eyes,jumbos,crappie and a few smallies... rigging on or next to rocks worked best for us.
