      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 .

A STRONG AREA OF LOW PRESSURE IS EXPECTED TO DEVELOP OVER THE CENTRAL PLAINS LATE FRIDAY NIGHT AND THEN SLOWLY LIFT NORTHEAST INTO SOUTHEAST IOWA BY SUNDAY MORNING...

I get to fish on Friday... will be interesting to see what happens...

One thing nice about being local... If I don't like the way the day is going... I just go home... no big deal.

I can relate though... nothing worse then planning a trip (like I do for muskies on soft water) and seeing a good old cold front showing up right on the money... If you think a cold front walleye is tough to catch... Try to get a muskie to open up on a cold front....Tougher then trying to get a hotspot from Fisky anymore... grin.gif

Well will see what happens, we are going to fish red on the way up on Friday, but what ever happens it's just fun getting away for the weekend but. We normally have a little to much fun, Monday will be a long day.

Thanks for the advice and replys.

Lip RIPPER!

WT, that was good. He hasn't given much out for secret spots anymore. Maybe he quit fishing?

Quit fishing? Me, never! Maybe when I quit breathing!

I tend to slack off a bit in February but I've been out a few times over the past couple weeks. Twice to URL.....Fun, Fun. Twice out on 5mile....so-so. Couple days ago out from Rocky area....Darn good. Last weekend way North to the "wifes hole" waypoint.....Slow and crowded! Yikes, there's a bigger pack way out there then there is on some of the Muskeg spots!

Wanted to go today but buddy can't do her. Darn it anyways as the fish will plain be a snappin good today!

On a side note......Can you guys keep your ears open for any LX3's for sale cheap. My cousins hut got broken into out there on Muskeg and a couple of these units were swiped as well as some other stuff. Darn Vermin!

Regards all.....fiskyknut

P.S.....Ripper thanks for that frozen Shiner info too man.

Wow were they ever snappin this morning... Got out there about 9, it was really busy until about 1, then the BIG wind hit, and snow... The fish seemed to shut down, and I got the heck out of there. Good thing for GPS, cause the only 2 directions I knew were up and down.

Just funnin ya Fisky about the hot spot stuff...

      I would avoid them if I were you.  All season.  There's often at least some current flowing through there and with these warmer winters, its just a bad idea.

      If your getting some pretty close shooting (and gauging by your photos you are in those setups), you might want to use an IC (improved cylinder) choke instead.  Spread that pattern out a little more and switch to some smaller shot size with more velocity, especially if you're mostly just shooting as small ducks like woodies. I almost exclusively use an IC until the calendar turns November, for ducks, pheasants, and grouse.  Later on when you get more shooting at bigger, smarter birds that are on the edge of range you could go back to a modified.

      Hello from the NW Angle!   Water temps are hovering around 48 degrees and fall fishing is phenomenal! Walleyes are biting anywhere from 14 to 30ft with jigging being the most effective method. Crappies are continuing to bite around sunken trees and deep holes with a good amount of perch mixed in. Anglers have had success trolling for large pike and muskies with jigging also bringing some to the boat.    We are getting fish houses ready for the 2017-18 ice fishing season and are very excited for hard water!   We recommending checking availability for winter ASAP!   Sunset Lodge

      Thank you for the responses everyone. You are correct Del I do not have the Fiber option.  We do use the Hot spot from AT&T at times but to be honest the Data does not last all that long, Even though we are right by Moccasin point & the tower is at the end of Frazer our signal is not the best at times.  We could also do DSL but according to one neighbor we may be faster sending up carrier pigeons & waiting for a response.

      It's been a 1/32 oz. unpainted jig head & a small split shot along with a crappie minnow for me most of the time. Still barely see the rod tip load or wiggle a little on the bite. Even tougher with the wind lately & 20' or more down.

      Any channel on any lake is dangerous.

      We are done as of Saturday as well. Was fishing in 35 feet in Smarts Friday and had a monster, monster fish on. Thought I was snagged for a few minutes, but then felt the wiggling. Fought if for probably five - ten minutes (drag flying out) and then up came an eight inch walleye. Never saw the monster, but guessing it was massive fish, perhaps a muskie? Anyone else ever have this happen?

      Hey I am planning on ice fishing on Lake Minnetonka this winter with a friend and I am using a snowmobile to get to the lake from the trails. I would enter onto the lake in Orono off the Luce line trail and end up in Stubbs bay. I was reading on other forums saying avoid the channels but it seems to be the only way to get around the lake to other bays especially since I am on a snowmobile. I was wondering if they eventually are safe enough to hold up a snowmobile in mid-late January, and if going through them faster helps possibly? I would like to fish around the Smith's bay area and the only way I can do that is going through channels. I know Lake Minnetonka can be sketchy with ice thickness and I don't want to end up through the ice, thoughts? Thanks.   Jim

      The DSL service is great since they ran the fiber down 24 a few years ago.   I was presuming that the poster didn't have that option if they were considering satellite.     AccessMN is another possibility if they are still around.
