      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 .

Getting excited...

Recommended Posts

I am heading up to fish with a group of four other guys this weekend, 16-18. It will be the first trip up there for me and my buddy. We are staying down at the motel on Wheeler's Point and planning to head out over Pine Island. From what I hear the bite has been pretty good just north of the island. I am wondering if I can get some recomendations for presentation and bait choice. I have a slew of Angel Eyes, pimps, and buckshots as well as plenty fat-boys and genz worms. I also have a few jiggin raps but have never had good luck on them. We are planning to fish two jig lines in the house and have some tip-ups set up outside to serve as our deadstick lines.

Should we go with shiners, chubs, fattys, or most likely the combo? Also, has anyone tried using larve or waxies for eyes, as I have caught them on those? Do the perch up there have a preference?

We had excellent fishing out past Pine fish were real finiky had to use a certain technique to get them to bite all in all we iced around 75 to 80 fish. Lots of fun and only could get them on certain lures fish were aggresive but real hard to get then to bite.

Can't wait till the 24th

Well if you see us out there stop by and say hello. We will be fishing in a Trap Guide with a Black F-150 pretty near-by. My name is Tom. Maybe we can share some hot-spots or tips. Well, hopefully we will be able to share some hot-spots.

Hi Crop,

Care to share the technique? I am taking my 7 y.o daughter and 10 y.o. son this weekend. We will be in a River Bend sleeper and they are out past Pine Island. I had the 7 y.o. there 3 weeks ago and we caught all our fish on a plain red hook. They wanted nothing to do with any kind of jig that weekend. They would spook as soon as the jig was moved.

Thanks,

Pops

I will be in an Eskimo III and the other to I believe are Otters. We are riding our sleds out right from the cabin. I will look for you stop and say hi if I see you. Hopefully everywhere we go will be a hotspot. We are going out to Garden Island Firday morning for the day. Will be back in after the night bite.

      Been thinking about breaking out the Jiggin Raps, might have to give that a shot. It's been too crowded out there this weekend with MEA going on.

      Sounds good! May an oversized deer with obscenely large antlers find its way to you!

      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.

      hummm, hadn't heard a thing?

      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!
