      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 .

Don't get too comfy in those pants, but I'm glad to hear you slipped them on. The zinger is a go for the weekend. A few of us fished out there last weekend and did really well on the gills up to 9". The get bigger too, so hopefully this weekend a few make an appearance. The crappies were slow, but with the warmer temps, the action should pick up. A few cats, largies, and pike were caught as well.

Hope to see you guys out there.

Boy was it a nice day today eh guys? Sunburns galore.

We started out today at around 6:30 and tried untill around 10:30 at Fish. Not much happening for fish being caught. A few here and there but not really on fire. So we grilled out and got ready to move about a mile down the lake. BY FOOT! blush.gif

I guess I better learn how to put the camera on the right setting?

Then we moved and tried a new spot. Only this place was much better. Gills and cats. One 26" er and mine which was a bit smaller.

Then a plane tried to land but it was way too soft on the lake.

DzNuts, it was a pleasure to meet you. Man I sure wish you would have caught some of them monsters you had on. Talk about frustrating. Get a good hook set and only gain a few cranks on the reel and then the drag goes nuts and then *poof* off they would go. Weird. I had a couple of them too.

Hey Airjer, thanks for coming dude! Always fun to talk to you about stuff.

I had a GREAT time fishing with you guys. The weather was great and the fishing went well.. alright. It was nice to hook on to a couple fish and finally get to put some faces to the names.

Dan, I'm glad someone could share my frustration. Misery loves company. We'll have to go back and try to get those jigs back from fat rascals. And thanks for the lunch.

The plane crash was a classic. Almost made the walk worth while.

See you all you guys real soon.

Holy crap, you guys were there when the plane tried to land!? That makes a season right there! You've got to wonder about the pilot who decides to land on a foot of snow. blush.gif Ice is easy to land on I'd imagine, but that just doesn't make any sense. Must not be from 'round here. smile.gif

Thanks for the report guys. Looks like it was fun. I hope your sunburn's doing okay today.

Regardless of the fish not cooperating, it was a great day to be on the ice. I think my total tally was two nice gills, and 3 or 4 perch. If anybody likes to laugh and have a good time than you should have been there!! The plane crashing was the icing on the cake and deffinetly worth the hike. That made it into my top ten greatest things I have ever seen and I'll be telling my grand children about that for sure!!

Thanks Dan for hosting this event!!

Sounds like all had a great time. I was up at the in-laws cabin in Winter, WI. Doing some spring projects up there. I did though see a 72" Muskie that weighed in just over 100lbs let me tell you that is a fish. The fish was found floating along the Chippewa Flowage a few years back. One of the local bars had a reproduction made of the fish.

The ZZ was a great success, even though the fish made us work for them. Dan's grill was putting out some tasty dogs and the sun was baking. The fish had temporarily moved out of the Fishermans Inn flats. Those that made the walk reaped some rewards from what I hear.

It was nice to meet everybody out there.

A great big thanks to the people who offered the awesome fish meal to my brother and me. It says quite bit about someone who will offer food to two guys they don't know from Adam.

Thanks again,

Steve Gorder

      Pearl Lake has been lights out for crappies in that 10+ inch range this year, finally,  find 13-16 fow and then drill holes until you see suspended fish. When you find them I like a 1/10oz. Swedish pimple (silver/glow) with 2 waxies, keep it above the fish and they’ll come up for it.

      I heard reports Friday of 3-5 inches out of Bayport.

      I'm on vacation until January 2nd if anyone wants to meet up and go fishing let me know I've got all my own gear 95% of the time I fish alone. Willing to drive anywhere or help with gas or what ever. Going to try a local lake in the morning for some eyes and panfish unless someone has any other suggestions. Mostly a CPR guy but it's also nice to occasionally bring some home for the family.

      Still pheasant hunting and still seeing lots of birds!  Went out an afternoon this past week and saw about 75 in 2.5 hours.  Went home with my 3 roosters.  Everything is froze good now so its easy walking and there's fresh snow.

      Welcome to FM, Some lakes near you that are good and have some quality  are Ann,Knife and Fish to the East and the Briggs chain to the West.  Look for green vegetation or mud basin bug hatches for action. 
    • monstermoose78
      Sure helps to find them when you have some of the top panfish anglers around helping
    • IceHawk
      Good fish Rick way to find some quality fish in a highly pressured area. Takes skill to be able to accomplish that. Maybe run into you one of these days out there
    • IceHawk
      Nice fish guys looked like a good time was had . That lake has some quality for sure. Figured you guys would dial them in.
    • Jory
      Not new to ice fishing but I can't seem to find the fish anymore around my neck of the woods in foley mn. so if anyone could give great insight of lakes times and maybe hints of baits and area of the lake would be awesome.
