      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 .

STAY OFF! I was at the bait box. was told that a truck went thru so being the smart guy I am, I parked my ruck at the landing and decided to take the wheeler. Well, that was at 11am. I just got out of the shower from being wet to the waist. The pressure ridge out from the landing (behind the trailer park thats behind the holiday gas station) has 2-3 ft of water on both sides of it under the drifting snow. I had to take my truck out part way and pull the wheeler out onto good ice. Luckilly it only got stuck in the slush, no water in the engine or crank case.

Maybe I can get out fishing next weekend.

Wade, take it easy on the new wheeler man wink.gif. Glad ya made it out alright. The harbor and bays are really starting to open up and split cracks. This new snow will only make it worse. Be carefull if your heading down there and don't drive your trucks out there crazy.gif

Wade Im glad your ok.

Ya all the pressure ridges and cracks are opening up with the wind and snow insulating the cracks. I went in up to my knee last night, luckily the opening was only about 16" wide.

Be very very careful on the river, even walking. I surely wouldnt drive out there.

Glad to here you are o.k. Wade. I was out there on Saturday and that truck was sitting there up to it's headlights. It looked to me that he was driving parallel to the pressure ridge and dropped through. I bet that the ice races out there on Saturday did not help things out at all. there had to be at least 50 - 75 rigs out there on the ice. I think I may have taken my last trip to Allouez unless I enter from the Wisconsin Point side.

Even the spots to get onto Alouiz off of Wi. Point are starting to look discolored. Im thinking my bay fishing days a very numbered. Oh well it sure was fun while it lasted. This years ice walleye bite on the river is probably the best one I have ever experienced. Lets hope we see a few more of these in our lifetimes. laugh.gif

Only other are an occasional sturgeon but the perch are running quite large this year with a few at the 13-1/2 " mark.

I,m hoping to hit Minnesuing this weekend.

I had heard about those perch, and was trying to get out there after them. Seems I missed allot of good fishing this year, man I hate my job. I tell you , if it wasn't for work, I'd get ALOT more fishing done. Oh well, maybe I can still get out there next weekend. If not, thereis always open water fishing.

      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.

      OK I will post a report just on the offhand chance that someone else still reads these things.  Fished at Birchdale afternoon of Saturday 10/21 and morning of 10/22.  Fishing was good Saturday for keeper sized fish, nothing big but caught 29 fish in 6 hours,  mostly nice keepers 14 to 19 inches long and not too many dinks.  Sunday morning fishing was slow and then it got super windy so pulled the plug early and went home.  Jigging in shallower spots, could not troll crankbait because of debris on line.  Others had mixed success.  Shiners were around.

      10/22/17     Hunted water in central MN from a boat blind both days. Despite gusty south winds one day and temps not exactly October-like, new ducks were around that moved in during a cold, clear night with a west wind during the week. Calendar migrators from the Dakotas and southern Canada. Saw eleven species and harvested ten--typical late October mixed bag. A mixed, medium-sized decoy spread with a crosswind on a point with the sun behind us was the ticket. An Avery Quick Set blind with fast grass mats and two Lucky Duck HD spinners rounded out the set-up. Subtle mallard quacks, chuckles, and drake whistles mixed with goose clucks, pintail and wigeon whistles locked up birds nice and close--no loud contest calling. Cold weather and West and NW winds this week should get a bunch of new birds in--probably a mixed bag of species still. We saw or heard eight flocks of specklebellies migrating on Sunday. Look for a show about one of these days of hunting on my You Tube channel (Fishing and Hunting the North Country) by later in the week.  Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      I pulled my boat for the winter today. Sure hated to have to do that, but have tons of stuff to do to get ready for the fall, winter stuff! Cliff
