      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 .

Plowing won't happen until tomorrow morning.

With the winds, it'd be a waste of gas and time.

I drove out on Prior last night. No plowed roads. You will need to have decent AT tires and some experience driving in snow like that to understand what is happening so you can move accordingly. Went out of the sportsman access.

Chadly, if I drive out of sportsmans, is there an area close to the landing that I can park my truck and then walk out from there?

Yes, straight out from the sportsman access and the small island is where you will typically find many people fishing.

Went to Grays bay today...Would love it if someone could plow that! We had one heck of a hike, there's some guy who has a car and a trailer stuck out there.

Caught plenty of smaller pannies.

Drove out of Sportsman's yesteday.....not good. There were five or so trucks out there and we thought we would give it a try. Never got stuck to the point of having to shovel but did have to do the old reverse, drive, reverse, drive deal twice. Glad we tried it out though!! cool.gif Fresh pannies and a cool sixer. Good times....good times.

Orchard is a no go. I took a running start at it and only made it out 40ft. Had to do a little shoveling to back it off the lake and park in the lot. Being the end of the season I don't think to many of the lakes will get plowed. Sure would be nice if they did though.

Reelemin,

How does the ice look? Did you drive on Black or park on the street and walk?

      looks like 3 so far.  anybody else up for this? 
    • Chill62
      Sorry dude I tried but this page isn't most active with facebook groups being the biggest way most people share ice thickness in a realtime way.  There's only one way to really know and that's grab a spud bar and start hitting as you walk and drilling holes to see.

      Be looking at these two general areas. Thanks for heads up on south end.

      My son and I fished from 8 - 4 yesterday out of Beacon Harbor.  It was super windy so we couldn't be as mobile.  We caught 6 eyes, all under 17", in about 8' of water and another 10 after we moved out to 11'. Also a few big Perch.  Only 2 fish on dead stick and the rest jigging.  Gold or pink seemed to work the best.  Fun day! Nels

      OK thanks.  I haven’t had an issue yet.  I just got low on powder and needed primers so I decided to try the Blackhorn 209 now.  I remembered reading this post. At the C store there were plenty of Triple 7 and Remington 209 primers in the ML supplies @ 9-10 bucks/100.  The shotgun primers were running running low though and I grabbed the last 100 pack.  They’re only 4 bucks/100.  I figured it would be a cheap experiment if nothing else.

      Not a hundred percent on the age but it's a Frabill Excursion and both are in brand new condition. Not to worried about the weight of it it won't be more than a handful of times of pulling it out before driving my truck out with it. The price difference between the two is what I was looking at.
    • FirstIce
      Does anyone have any input on the kdrill on a gas auger? I have seen a few people use this setup. Do you need a special adapter to use it?
    • Wanderer
      Are they both the same age?  Equal condition?  Do you hand drag or machine pull?  Weight will matter a lot. You really have to consider how you plan to use the house.  Happiness with the houses performance is the biggest key.   Otherwise it appears to be a trade from a $480 house to a $700 house based on new house prices if I looked at the right Frabil.

      It's not thermal. How's frabill's customer service in case you break a poll or something?
    • going4it
      The only problem I had with my frabill was its weight. It was a tank to pull and tough to put in the bed of the truck.
