      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 Great day of ice fishing

Just thought I'd share a few pics from a great day of fishing with my dad. The morning started with a nice 25" eye, dad pulled in a nice 24.5" a little later (his biggest walleye), and early evening I pulled in a beautiful 27.5" eye. Along with a few smaller eyes and perch to eat, and the biggest Eelpout I have ever pulled in it was a GREAT day on the ice, the best ice fishing trip yet. I'll let you guess where... grin.gif

Nope hitman that was Mille Lacs, my favorite little pond. I will be fishing out there a ton, living out there this summer. I would definately suggest you make a trip out there this spring/summer right now the strong year classes of eyes are huge and I can just about guaranty fish over 23. If anyone is interested in coming out that way let me know. That was one long day, a 24.5, 25, 27.5. Oh and if any one was interested caught the 25 on a frostee jigging spoon (introductory run w/ euros!) the 24 on sli bobber and minnow, and the 27 on a flyer type thing with whole minnow. they seemed to like a lot of action to call them in but then something that was natural looking sitting still, hence whole minnow. execpt the one on euros that was early in the morning and i was just pounding that spoon, just an agressive fish.

Yeah, I had a 28+ incher at the hole in the ol' Big Pond when my buddy and I were there a month ago. We also caught those twin 25 inchers I was talking about a month ago as well. What a fishery there. With time, that will turn into my favorite lake (although, Devils still holds that title for now smile.gif). My buddy and I are in the process of making reservations at the Grand Casino there for the opener. That's right, we are trying the opener at the Big Pond this year (Otter Tail is our fall back if that doesn't pan out)...

Good Luck to all!

your gonna go out on a launch boat at Eddys for opener then, or out in your own? I will most likely be fishing out of Garrison that weekend, let me know if you end up going. Did you go to NDSU than, for what? I'm a student there right now. Never fished Devils, but it would take a whole lot for me to say any lake is better than Mille Lacs for eyes, other than Erie I supppose. wink.gif

Comment now or the days of fishing your favorite lake anytime you want, will be over! I’m sure this is coming to a county near you if this goes thru out here.

      Not uncommon at all for this time of year.  I used to try and find some regularly around Labor Day and always ran into problems.  I think its just the nature of the bait business.

      Does anyone know where I can get some jumbo leeches between the Twin Cities and Mille Lacs?  I would even settle for large.  There seems to be a shortage of supply. Thanks!

      Our prayers were answered from the south with some river flow. For now the river is back to easier and safer boating so we can get around.
        The catfishing has held steady, same as the past two weeks. The fish have moved to the shallow off current sides of the river since the nights have recently become cooler.  Sits have become longer to 25-35 minutes per spot to allow the fish to find the bait.  Mid-Day don't be afraid to find some current or move back to the middle to see if the fish have moved out to feed.
        Bait has been frozen suckers and frogs.  All other baits just don't seem to have the same effectiveness.
        We are entering into some transitions to fall and things will be changing over the next week or two.  The new flow should get the fish moving a bit more and that fall feed should ramp up over the next couple weeks.

      Also check for water in the fuel filter. At higher rpms water droplets travel to carbs and causes poor combustion. Happened to me some years ago. Had to drain water out of tank.

      Skunked, It was nice meeting you.  I've seen you,  your wife and little one a few times, but you never waved-thought you might be mad at me after we had a little debate on netting.  Sounds like were good!  Stop by if you see me on the dock.  That was my wife and sister in-law assembling the bench. That pinch area on the river is tight and some folks tend to fly right thru.  Also, people fishing on that dock in the pinch down area in the spring, don't like to reel in their bobber when you try to navigate through the boats in the spring.  I used the fish the St Louis River a lot and fellow fisherman were terrible flying by you.  I too follow the no-wake policy when going through tight areas.

      Yep, done for the year.  Not much for heat or insulation in the cabin.  It's a real, honest to goodness cabin.   So, as of Thursday, adios.  Until next year, etc.
    • CigarGuy
      Del, are you done up here for the year?  Missing the best part of the year!  If you see me on the dock or out on the lake..say hi!  I wouldn't just drop in and introduce myself either-not my style.  Don't have to worry too much about anybody climbing the mountain to do that

      About 69 this morning.... And this concludes my reporting until sometime in 2018, Lord willing. But I will still be watching....
    • delcecchi
      I will add that it is nothing like the old days when throwing a marker was practically life threatening..... But that is west end.   If it wasn't for the musky  guys there would only be like three of us...
