      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 .

Anyone know how much snow they're getting on LOW? I'm heading there mid week and it'd be nice to know what we're getting in to. Thanks in advance.

I think we have had close to a foot, and it's still coming down.

When we left LOW yesterday morning at 900am it was snowing hard and continued all the way to St Cloud. We got 13" down here, I'm sure they got plenty up there as well. Glad we finally got some so the guys with the sleds can enjoy their past time as well. Bill

Was out on the lake this morning...

Cross country travel with a vehicle will be tough at best. Woke up to at least 6" this morning and that wasn't counting what we got on Saturday. I would say that it's "snowcat" only if you want to get off the main roads.

I was up there wed-sun. One thing to note is that it was very windy Friday and Saturday, so the snow that they did receive has drifted pretty deep in some places.

Hey Flint,

We had a the whole family up there this past weekend. Rented a cabin at Morris and fished out of our houses. Two days of East wind, so you can guess how the fishing was. The kids got to catch some fish, and had the Kitty Cat up there for them to ride around on. Dad and Casey went in shallow one night but it was slow there too. Lots of snow now, so getting around with a vehicle will be tough.

Was fishing on one of the reefs about a week ago and did really good. I'm really liking those rocks....

Any plans on coming up? How about Paul?

Later,

Ya-

Planning on coming up this weekend. Paul should be there also if he don't have jury duty. Some of Hammer brothers are coming I guess. But I plan to hit it hard and sled some place. Reefs you say? Shallow bite on Zippel shut off yet? That was the plan is to hit that in the morn then head it north to reef hoop. Let me know if that's a good one or not?

Paul and LJ are here helping me put liquid kit on the planter. Lots of dud light last night!

Take care,

That's what I would do.

Watch the weather, Friday is supposed to be nasty then settling down for the weekend.

Give me a call if you get a chance.

      I went out on Horseshoe on Sunday and where the ice remained from the first freeze it is a solid 6 in.  Where it recently froze over last week its was 3 inches at best.  Now that we have snow cover it will be hard to find that line.  I was out with the wheeler on sunday but stayed on the "old" ice that I knew was "safe".  I wouldn't use a wheeler from the access or go exploring quite yet.  Plan on heading back out Thursday and will try and give an update
    • Rancid Crabtree
      went out last night. 2.5-3" of solid clear ice. Single digits last night and still pretty cold today...wouldn't be surprised to find another inch when i head out this evening.  Forecast temps have been lowered a few degrees so we shouldnt be losing any ice through the week/weekend. Hopefully making a bit more each night. Breaking out the popup this weekend!

      So there's a guy that wants to trade his Frabill 3 man side door entry flip over ice house for my one man clam Legend thermal Ice House. Thinking I might go for it but was wondering if I should stay away from Frabill for any reason? Wondering if I could get any input and if this is a good deal or not. Thanks in advance.

      Total agree Topwater mix rules for a kid learning to muskie fish.  Kayak ~~~ At 14 years can by now control the craft & cast pretty well so mix of small to medium size bucktails and a glider or two kick it any time.  Host of things to purchase out there but really no need. Keep it simple, have fun, learn the lake, the fish, the food....he will enjoy it an be hooked for long long time.  And will he succeed ~ YES indeed ~ 96 & 3/4 percent ~  guaranteed.   : )     Keep on rocken!    T

      I used to fish Lake Shakopee regularly.  I did awesome catching largemouth bass there with good average size, and never had any competition.  A couple years ago, they did some construction upstream by the start of the river at the base of Vineland Bay for road construction and they had to drop water levels to do it.  The flow rate never came back to normal.  Then they took out Buckmore Dam in the state park at the base of Lake Ogechie which also altered the flow through that area.  I tried it once each the past two years and only caught 1 bass each time, in addition to about 40 pike.  Every single pike was the same size, about 20-22 inches.  Just snake after snake.  Slime city.  I think the alteration of the river flow through that area has permanently ruined the bass fishing there.

      Just goes to show that if you put the time in to eplore new places just to see if there is anything in said body of water..... it can have very good payouts. The body of water that we got the eyes out of i have never fished before. Grew up next to it basically its only 10 min from the house. When they started hitting all fish were caught one after another i have never had walleyes through the ice bite like they did. A new experiance and i was able to share it with friends. Hope everyone is being safe out there. 
    • gimruis
      There's no reason to go on the frozen lake when you are catching fish like that in the open water of a river.
    • crappie king 42
      No this is not red lake. This was a local spot in the cambridge princeton milaca area.  Nice solid 14-17 inch walleyes nice and healthy and they tasted delicious

      8Went out locally here thanksgiving mornin on three inches of solid ice hot into the eyes really well. A week later whole place was open water again so we went out in the kayaks got 14 eyes than went out again now that ice is back went to same lake and had a rough weekend we only managed to get three all weekend. Went out on all local lakes they are all sketchy at best. Few more days to solidify that bad ice and should be good to go. Went to shakopee in onamia and there was a solid 10 inches out there.
