      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 .

I can't believe that with 30"+ of ice that it's going to go away that quickly.

Maybe Deadhead and Fisherdog can give us a report on the ice conditions around the accesses. If I understand correctly, they both live in or around the DL area and probably drive by one or two on the way home from work.

Dead? Dog? what's the word??

I was by the access to Little D the other day, and it looked okay; I'm sure it's in a little rougher shape after this morning, but should still be usable.

Don't kid yourself, without much snow cover, when we get some sun and warmer temps it will go quick. Bare clear ice absorbs alot of solar energy, much quicker than a snow covered lake. I drove by HoL on the way back from Bemidji this afternoon and the lake was already starting to look turquoise after 2 days of warm temps.

We should be good with the cooler temps this weekend, but I have a feeling the ice will go quick when we get a week of solid above freezing temps. What a joke this winter was.... confused.gifmad.gif

I'll know more tomorrow about the accesses, but from what I have seen they look OK. I agree with dead on the no snow deal, the ice has a different look to it already, but I'm sure we'll get some more cold weather and it will all be fine for a few weeks. We are coming up on the best ice fishing of the season, come on slabs laugh.gif.

If you go, let me know what the ice is like. I am sure it is ok yet. I may try and slip out of here early today and try to get down there and wet a line tonight. Only a couple of days left for the ole permanent, I too need to "get er done" grin.gif

The accesses to Little D at J&K Marina and at Rossman are pretty rough right now. All the slop from yesterday froze back like a corn cob. With all the dirt and sand that got tracked onto the ice on the main roads out, the sun melted those areas pretty quick. With the lack of snow cover, I'm sure many of the other area lake accesses are in a similar condition. The forecast looks to stay below freezing through next week, so I think most of you guys should be okay getting your houses off.

Got my house off last night -- glad I did because this snow could make it a little tougher.

Yeah, I was thinking that I maybe should have pulled mine off last night too.

The fishing has been poor to say the least anyway. The only thing I caught last night was he$$ when I got home. Ever have one of those days fishing??? Needless to say Hitman, it was not a good time to ask her if I could go to URL with you. Thanks for the offer though!

Oh well, maybe they'll pick up this weekend with the weather moving in. If I don't bring some fish home pretty soon she'll really start to wonder if I really am going fishing. grin.gif

      I am headed to MN for my annual trip and wanted to target pike on leech. For the past 5-6 years I have been kayaking smaller lakes around the area but now I am back to having a decent boat for bigger waters. Used to fish the east side flats in Headquarters and Boy bay prior to my kayak days. Usual came earlier in the year as well. Bucktails on weedlines still my best bet or do you think crankbaits are the way to go just off weedlines? Better spots than others? Should be there a few days before / after Labor Day.

        I believe the  problem here is a hull with rocker.   At different trim and speed the hull does just that, rocks.   Normally you'd trim in, throttle up and once on plane, throttle back to cruise speed and adjust the trim out.    To be trimmed all in at WOT or even cruising speed would make must hulls plow water at the bow.   In the case with rocker you usually find the porpoise stops when you increase speed.   The fin might be enough to lift the transom up and stabilize it.   Let us know what you do and how it works.

      Went and tried a new spot... 3 snacky cats. One of them took my rod straight into the river and I had to dive in after it. Good times.

      I use the Daiwa ct r also have 2 of them best out there in my opinion.
    • FishinCT
      Pretty good for me from Monday through Wednesday. Found them from 14-24ft depending on the spot but most fish came from under 20ft. Trust the electronics and motor around til you find a good school. They are hitting pretty well when you find them

      Best wishes for a happy retirement Ace.   I could never have done the guide thing even if I were a good enough fisherman.   It takes a special type of person to deal with all the different people... Congratulations on a job well done. 
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Terry, Sorry to hear that you have to retire after all of these years! I suppose It will be my turn to join you and Tommy before to many years also. See you on the water!! Cliff

      Congratulations on job well done sir. Your deserve time for yerself with Sandra an the whole younger crew. You have always been nice to me an a big help when I first seriously did the Muskie fish guide deal back summer 1996. We have had some fun times laughing online an in each other's boat over the years. Even boated a fish or three an coined a few major phrases still used in today's ever so silly online Muskie fish market.  Good stuff that I think only you n I could muster up and never take any of it seriously. Truely makes me smile clear to my middle all the junk we talked about an did. You are a good man Terry and welcome in my boat any time. Anytime. Ya done good and will not soon be forgotten. Thanks for being my friend on or off the water. The name fits as you really have been "The Ace"on our sweet Vermilion.   Still no fish round my docks but Bonnie, Polar Bear Boy an myself always have enjoyed your company. Yer the best in many ways my friend.  Thanks. Keep on Rocken!   Tommy.       PS.    I will continue to keep the Zombie Horde in check.    ; )
