      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 .

your best bet is probably just to walk out, but i was able to make it from hunts access to in front of the dnr wall where you go around the heave before i got really stuck. Eagles point and Torges Point have both been putting out sunfish and crappies even durning the day. Fish 5-10 below ice over 15-17 feet of water for the crappies, dont seem to matter what you give em a crappie minnow or fathead or even a shiner. The sunfish will take a crappie minnow but id bring some waxies. There was a path from hunts to the dnr wall around the heave and then out to crappie town(eagles point) If some body happened to have a good plow truck that would be the best way to get out there, or possibly a path from the glenwwod city beach straight over there, then theres no heaves to deal with. Me I think im just gonna lace up the old boots and tug my way out there by hand. Hope the snow melts a little this week, guys hates to walk out when theres 25 inches of ice. confused.gif

Theres a trail from city beach out to eagles point and then it keeps going to torges point area its deep but do-able if you can stay in the tracks, fished from like 4 - 7pm caught an easy limit of crappies and a few sunfish. Was fishing straight out from the big cliff near the dnr landing.

So, there is a trail/road that goes to the crappies/sunfish spot? Was going to bring the girlfriend there tomorrow to fish. Can't get on the lakes where we live, way to much snow on them.

So how far is it to walk out from the public access on the NW corner to where they're getting crappies? Are sunfish also biting there? Do you have to go over an ice heave to get there?

fish were all caught no more left, actions slowed down alot. plowed trail rather slushy access not real dry, and 1/4 mile walk but still quite drivable. If you move around youll do alright, but seriously alot of small pannies. seen a truck come on from hunts and around the heave by the dnr wall and out to where we fish snow pack is deteriating making travel much easier. too bad the access is gonna go out soon confused.gif

      Well the weather was pretty crappy but the fish were biting...Had to sort through but kept some for dinner. Caught a variety today, eyes,jumbos,crappie and a few smallies... rigging on or next to rocks worked best for us.

      Good luck. Maybe we will see you Friday. I will let you know how things are looking by us as the weekend goes by.

      I still hope it's double!  I just went over the map with my brother and talked about our options.  We have enough places to go for sure.  It's always fun planning and talking about past hunts. I put out the question to the other two guys about staying in camp vs the house.  We'll see what they decide.  I hauled our "cabin" home from Ely today so we should have plenty of room if they wanna camp.

      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.
