      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 .

This one is too funny not to pass on.

Earlier this winter Buddy met some people he knew pulling their wheel house towards shore. A few hours later he saw them setting up their house out from Rocky Point so he drove over to see how things were going. They looked at him with a surprised look and asked what he was doing there? Buddy asked them what they ment? Well, why are you on this side of the lake they replied. Now Buddy is getting confused and replied just checking the road. The people got a funny look on their face and then looked at each other and said, "O NO".

It seems that they were fishing out from Hillman's when another friend called and said he had really hit a good crappie bite 8 miles out from Roger's. He offered to lead them back to the spot so they packed up and drove to shore. Followed the highway to Roger's where they met their friend who led them to his hot spot. That's when Buddy pulled up, while they were setting up their house about 150 yards from where they had just left that morning. grin.gif

LOL! Ill never hear the end of that one. grin.gif

I was extremely careful and kept my eyes very wide open that night. The cracks and ridges freak me out so my max speed was about 5 mph. I realized how lucky I was once we got in the shack that night.

Yeah, he dropped his front end in. Ripped the bumper and valance up pretty good. And from what I could tell, the bumper pushed the front quarter panel sheet metal up a little too.

Beware the triangle. blush.gif

Sorry to hear about your luck! That had to be spooky. Did you have Nikki with you? I am planning on heading up on the 9th - 11th. Will you be up?

Yeah, it didnt look too bad. But it just kind of moved everything on the front end back about a quarter inch. So almost everything needed to be fixed. I might just keep the cash and live with it. The money would sure help with a house down payment next year.

Scott,

It was just kind of surprising. It was 9:30 at night and the snow was blowing pretty bad. The crack was covered with snow and we couldn't see it. Nikki was freaking out pretty bad. But we got out after 2 pulls from Jon. We will be up that weekend too. Probably saturday til thursday. We will have to meet up then.

WOW Matt!

It just didn't look like that much damage from a distance. Wanda and I will be up the weekend too. We'll get up there Thursday night and fish Friday-Sunday. Looked like Wanda and Nikki hit it off pretty good. We'll likely start in the same general area we fished last weekend unless it proves to be unproductive for us.

We will likely stop in at Tall Tails for a bump or two afterwards.

      Is the Frabill a thermal flip over? It sounds like a steal to me. I would go for it if you’re looking for a house that has more room. I have a Frabill 2 man thermal flip over and I really like it.

      Steve, Thanks for helping me get a deal on my Otter. I was able to pick it up at Marine General on Monday. Can't believe all of the ice stakes that came with it. Bought one of the Eskimo drill adapters to install them.

      Just out on 1st Lake after work 5” solid clear ice out to 17’ of water

      Any new updates on the ice thickness.  Looking to get out on walk-able ice this weekend.  Seems like the darn winds blows 45 mph every day lately.
    • nofishfisherman
      Thanks for the reply, I'll check them out.

      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
