      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 .

Fish house question....

Recommended Posts

I am not sure where to post this....

I have a clam 6800, and I added carpet to it, and like it alot. HOWEVER, my wife would prefer we had something abit warmer and comfortable. I have been looking online at several of the trailer conversions with the tip up wheels, and I wonder about that idea. Expensive, but convenient. My biggest question is how heavy are these things? I have been thinking that something in the 14 to 18 foot range would be perfect (gotta have a potty for the Mrs.), but I wonder how many feet of ice it takes to support them. Not a problem now with 2 feet on the lake, but I would hate to tie that much money into something to find it is only usable 2 or 3 weeks a year. My truck isn't exactly light either, 07 2500HD. I am driving it out now, though have mostly been using my old fishing truck (rusty old brown 88 Suburban), and don't worry if there is 15 inches or more, but add a trailer that size, and how much ice do you need to use it safely? Can anyone give me some guidlines, and maybe a few reviews of trailers they have used? Thanks.

usaully you look for around 18inches to pull a wheelhouse witha truck......the weight will depend on what you have in them......some are towed by 4 wheelers and are used earlier in the season otherwise you look to go north in december and usually jan/feb you can use them around most of the state.......not much help from me but gives you a little idea.....once you have a hard house though they are quite fun to fish and stay in!!!! nothing better than cooking pizzas, watching tv, drinking, and catching fish in a comfortable house!!

      Pearl Lake has been lights out for crappies in that 10+ inch range this year, finally,  find 13-16 fow and then drill holes until you see suspended fish. When you find them I like a 1/10oz. Swedish pimple (silver/glow) with 2 waxies, keep it above the fish and they’ll come up for it.

      I heard reports Friday of 3-5 inches out of Bayport.

      I'm on vacation until January 2nd if anyone wants to meet up and go fishing let me know I've got all my own gear 95% of the time I fish alone. Willing to drive anywhere or help with gas or what ever. Going to try a local lake in the morning for some eyes and panfish unless someone has any other suggestions. Mostly a CPR guy but it's also nice to occasionally bring some home for the family.

      Still pheasant hunting and still seeing lots of birds!  Went out an afternoon this past week and saw about 75 in 2.5 hours.  Went home with my 3 roosters.  Everything is froze good now so its easy walking and there's fresh snow.

      Welcome to FM, Some lakes near you that are good and have some quality  are Ann,Knife and Fish to the East and the Briggs chain to the West.  Look for green vegetation or mud basin bug hatches for action.

      Sure helps to find them when you have some of the top panfish anglers around helping

      Good fish Rick way to find some quality fish in a highly pressured area. Takes skill to be able to accomplish that. Maybe run into you one of these days out there

      Nice fish guys looked like a good time was had . That lake has some quality for sure. Figured you guys would dial them in.

      Not new to ice fishing but I can't seem to find the fish anymore around my neck of the woods in foley mn. so if anyone could give great insight of lakes times and maybe hints of baits and area of the lake would be awesome.
