      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 am sorry to say that we are closing the road to vehicles for now. Only four wheelers and snowmobiles and of course Wilcrafts.

The ice is still good but the landing is deteriating.

Fish On!!!

TRZ,

The landing was really starting to deteriorate when we left this a.m. I would advise against it. frown.gif

TRZ,

On Sun. Appledorns had switched the exit off of lake from what I had gone out on to a differenty area. I figured by Mon., they would not be able to drive out anywere at Apple dorns. Water skipping is your only chance, or Wilcraft.

Here are a couple caught by Deitz yesterday:

I'd get up there if I was you. The perching should just keep getting better. Walking or wheeling will get you there.

The weather was something else!!! Wow!. And as you can see there are fish out there to catch! Here are some tips.. Stay mobile. We seemed to do best moving around an area a lot. Go with a 1-2 punch... One larger lure to draw them in, if they dont hit it, then drop a second lure down that will get them. I used a small nills master jiging shad(like a jigging rapala) with a wax worm. And then used a Diamond Jig as my finess lure, with eruolarvae.

Fishermen and Fisherwomen,

Unfortunately, I am in Stevens Point, Wisconsin this week at the Wisconsin Resort and Campground Convention displaying our four season park model rv cabins (www.appeldoornsparkmodelsales.com).

So I will not be at the resort this weekend. I'll be thinking about the perch fishing though, I can assure you that! Justin or Jon, will be able to help you with your road passes and any details on the roads in the office. Folks, the office is the little cabin with our sign on it as you first pull into Appeldoorn's Resort.

I wish you all luck and hope to see some pictures up here on FM so I can see them out here in Wisconny.

Fish On!!!

      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!

      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.
