      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 .

Went out tonight to fetch the permanent off the lake and just wanted to let everybody know that the Grandpa Ed's ramp is now closed off with yellow caution tape.

Lot's of standing water but still plenty of good ice with the hi-banks still at around 17".

Scrod, your hut is still OK. grin.gif Let me know if ya need any help getting it off the lake.

There is a marked off area near Nietz's point to watch out for that has open water.

Talked to a few people that were there since noon and they only had a few in the pail. Not much for size either.

I see the new girl replaced the white Shepard....he must have peed on the carpet to be regulated to the supporting cast position, or is it just the girls pretty face?

Does she force him off his chow yet? Maybe come running to papa and tell if he gives her an ugly growl?:)

The Zum Treated Tom and I pretty well this morning. We were out there a little before the fish woke up, but once with sun hit the ice, the action was hot. We caught an estimated 40 fish with an even mix of bluegills and crappies (both whitties and blackies), and 1 perch. No mongo fish today, but I wouldn’t say we caught many dinks either. Several 8” gills that were nice a plump along with a handful of 9” crappies. We couldn’t find any big fish, but the medium sized fish were plentiful.

We caught fish on waxies, and red and white spikes. Diamond jigs in the #12 size took most of our fish. I had a glow white and Tom had a gold & purple. I also took several fish off a JB Lures Gem’n Eye 1/32 chart/white. Almost all of our fish were taken in the bottom 5’ of the water column.

Way to go you guys! I knew they were there. I guess it just took a couple better fishermen to catch 'em. wink.gif

A blind dog could have caught them. They were thick. Often times the bottom 4' was stacked. I really wanted to catch a nice on and take a picture right at the site where your shack sat Dano. Makes me laught just thinking about it.

I was at Fishermans Inn yesterday and all I saw was sled traffic. No vehicles. And you are right, water would fill up in the boot prints. Fished from 1:00 til 4:00 and never marked a fish. My first skunk of the year. frown.gif

Well, the yellow tape at Grandpa Ed's is gone but the ramp is completley buried behind a wall of snow. At the public access I didn't see any vehicle tracks. Just quads and sleds But that was Sunday. Maybe that's changed by now?

I went out there this morning but i didnt drive out since there was about 1.5' of water below the landing so I just fished around the dam area. There is water on the ice but not everywhere. Ice thicknees over there ranged around 13" but found some areas with only about 9" but thats by the dam so theres more current. Saw one truck come off the landing about 100yrds and then turned around and left. theres no signs of traffic. Fishing stunk for me only got one small gill. My buddy caught a couple bigger gills and one 10" perch.

      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.

      Neighbor and I went out in Wakemup for a couple hours tonight and got a 18" and 19" and had a nice one come unbutton on the way in....Leaches and crawlers.  That's good for me!  20 - 34' off a break line.  Del, working on the last flight of the steps-was looking for you to stop by and help!
