      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 .

guess i have to respond to my own question...All I've found out is that there is a road plowed out from CJ's for the bike racing. anybody have any more info? like how far it went past or if the snowmobiles have flattened things down enough for a wheeler. How about any other north metro lakes?

Come on folks I need my ice fishing fix.

I was on E. Rush yesterday, got stuck at the boat launch(Stupid move) underestamated the snow depth. You can drive out from the resort for 3$, but you really can't get off of the road at all. Bite was very slow compred to pre snowfall. Not much packed down and alot of water under snow-pretty terrible conditiopins right now.

waited until the bike races wrapped up and followed the only road avail. did manage to catch some fish in an area i haven't fished before (kinda weird being the only 2 souls on the ice after 8pm). TRZ is right; the conditions are pretty harsh right now. Well gotta work for a stretch anyway. Hopefully catch some action in a week or 2. Thanks to whoever plowed the only road

This is two days old, from Rush Point Store:

3-7-07 Ok, questions about roads on the lake...West Access apparently has a track that big trucks can take, but is basically pretty screwed up...another from CJs, also not so good...FlickaBirds has a narrow road out, but hard to turn around and get back in, snowbanks to high and close, so if too many vehicles come out, can't get turned around...That's what we are hearing, have not been out..too busy....

I was out on East Rush on Tuesday, and it was pretty sloppy. Talked to a guy at a resort and he said there were some big cracks along the main road, and he told us to make our own path. I talked to a couple of friends who were out on Rush yesterday (Thursday), and they said that the slush had firmed up and they were still driving out. That's the most recent information I have. Good Luck, and stay safe.

I fished East Rush on Saturday. Some trucks were driving out from the Bar, but we took a wheeler and a trailer. The shore ice at the public landing is good for ATVs, but a little shaky for trucks.

Good Luck

I drove a car out last saterday without a problem. Not sure I would do it again as the access by the shore is rough. Ice is still about 24" on the lake.

I was out this afternoon fishing with a few buddies by crane Island. Caught a few perch, sunnies, and crappies. Fishing was pretty dang slow. Ice was still at 22 inches but starting to get soft and honeycombed. Still plenty of ice for atv's. The shore line by the public access is starting to open up a bit but can still easily jump up on the ice with the atv's. This is definitely going to be the last weekend driving atv's.

      Did a few off season projects waiting for Ice. - Underwater camera, Fish Finder, Wheel house mods and the latest converting a 2 cycle Jiffy Lite 90 to an ION battery auger. Got the auger off Craiglist for $10, Drill for $15. Second stage of gear box is a 5 to 1 reduction so got the auger blade to turn at about 250 RPM which I feel is an ideal speed. Gear reduction also doubled the torque of the motor drive. Planning to use the Dewalt 20V ION battery as I already have charger and now converting one of the 1.5 AH batteries to either 9 or 12 AH.  If anyone needs a mid 80's Jiffy Lite 90 motor and clutch PM me. Has great compression, never tried to start it.  Price somewhere between free and a gift. If you did a project this summer, would you care to share them? DJ ION Auger HB.mp4  << Click link for video

      You may want to consider #3 ; Rapala Jiggin Raps, or drop shoting. They both have been putting some nice size suspended slabs topside under some breezy conditions as of late. Fishing sure was downright epic the last week for all species. To bad it looks like "global warmering" is coming to an end for this year, was awesome while it lasted...... Those are some decent perch panman54. LOL!

      Pretty remote and flat back there. I haven't been on that exact shoreline but I bet you can pull a boat up there quite easily.

      I didnt hear how the second day went yet.  The long term average is 8% success up to 10% during the 2 deer era.  so 5.7% isnt bad for day 1.   Cooler weather will hopefully help us second weekenders. I havent seen much for rubs or scrapes here yet, should be starting any day.

      HooDoo Point, Everett Bay public landing, or the Casino are all good landings if you want to fish Big Bay. The Y-Store or  the Food and Fuel in Tower both have good bait. Cliff

      Anything from moccasin point west can be pretty spotty with Verizon. If you're on big bay it's tough to beat

      I just read an article in the paper recently, that pout fest might be relocated to Lake Bemidji in 2018. It never gave a reason why though. Anyone know anything?
