      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 .

I spent a lot of time on the ice this past weekend and had several opportunities to talk with many "locals" about the bite, etc, etc. There is a genuine concern out there from many of these people that some of our area lakes are seeing too much pressure and/or multiple limits being taken off a given lake within a 24-hour period. Although we can not control who goes fishing and when, we can act on people breaking the law. I encourage all of you to turn in a person or person(s) who you know may be "double-dipping", fishing with 3 - 4 lines, invalid fishing/shelter licenses or anything of the like. I think we can all make a conscious effort to try and stop some of the wrong-doing that is happening right underneath our nose. Certainly there can be a separate discussion on what the Internet has done to the sport of fishing, positive and negative, but this is not the time or the place for that. This is simply a reminder to act as sportsmen or women every time you go outdoors. If you read this and are "double-dipping" or breaking the law in another fashion, shame on you. Perhaps this post will make you think about what you're doing. We have a future to protect and it starts with us.

Thank you!

Well said Jamison. Just like walleyes, it's important to release those big plate-sized 'gills and crappies. Keep a few of the mid-sized fish for a meal and let the big'ens go to carry on the genes. And yes, shame on anyone who goes out double-dipping. It's hard to imagine someone would do that, but it happens and there's no excuse for it. This is one of the more "firey" posts I've seen from you in a while. Did you witness something over the weekend?

I didn't personally witness anything but I talked to enough people to know that it's happening and the concern is genuine. We need to act on these things daily, if necessary. There needs to be a message sent out to these people that it will not be tolerated. We can not reach everyone but we can certainly do our best to try.

Baby steps. One violater here, one violater there....soon enough the message will get across to those who chose to ignore the law, or refuse to take the responsibility of reading up on it.

      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.
