      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 ready to make the trip...

Any last minute tips for someone going up this weekend? We are tentatively planning to fish the area just past Pine Island Friday, 28 fow during the day and move to about 16-18 fow for the dusk bite. Then we are thinking of fishing the Knights and Bridges area Saturday morning and we will probably move around a bit out there and settle into a spot for the evening bite again. Then we will fish a bit on Sunday morning, probably just over Pine Island again in the morning and then head home.

Is there water on top of the ice up there or did the recent colder temps harden it up again? Is there much slush on the ice? Anybody use Adrian’s Road the last couple days?

Thanks,

Tom

I was up last tuesday through sunday in varied depths. We found fish across pine and we were the only house there until over the weekend. By sunday we had about 30 houses on top of us. We brough home our limtits but was not fast and furious with the exception of when Mr. Warden came in and tore apart our house. We could not keep fish off our hooks but couldnt really fish with him tearing our trucks and house apart. We we ended up with 9 fish between 24 and 28.5 inches. 4 of which were 28-28.5. I also lost one pig in the hole!! It was a true trophy!

Sounds like fun other than the troubles the warden gave you. Do you know if that is typical or was he just checking to make sure you don't have any eyes stashed somewhere? Not really too much to try and tear apart with us, just a fish trap and an F-150. I hope I can get into some of the piggies, but a few eaters will do for me. My buddy is after his first walleye ever, so hopefully that will happen for him fairly quick.

Tom,

Sounds like you have a pretty good plan. Adrian's road was wet on Tues, drying on Wed, & is firm & dry tonight. A bit rough due to the thaw & freeze but very drivable. Adrian's guys were working hard on a couple of breakers tonight so should be in prime shape for you.

Had a tough bite and hard to put together a good pattern the last three days but a fathead on a hammered gold Gem-n-eye did as well as anything. Most fish in 28' came between noon & 3PM. My 78 year old pop kicked my butt with a small Buckshot in the new pink glow W/gold front. Wouldn't have it any other way!

      The DSL service is great since they ran the fiber down 24 a few years ago.   I was presuming that the poster didn't have that option if they were considering satellite.     AccessMN is another possibility if they are still around.

      OK I will post a report just on the offhand chance that someone else still reads these things.  Fished at Birchdale afternoon of Saturday 10/21 and morning of 10/22.  Fishing was good Saturday for keeper sized fish, nothing big but caught 29 fish in 6 hours,  mostly nice keepers 14 to 19 inches long and not too many dinks.  Sunday morning fishing was slow and then it got super windy so pulled the plug early and went home.  Jigging in shallower spots, could not troll crankbait because of debris on line.  Others had mixed success.  Shiners were around.

      10/22/17     Hunted water in central MN from a boat blind both days. Despite gusty south winds one day and temps not exactly October-like, new ducks were around that moved in during a cold, clear night with a west wind during the week. Calendar migrators from the Dakotas and southern Canada. Saw eleven species and harvested ten--typical late October mixed bag. A mixed, medium-sized decoy spread with a crosswind on a point with the sun behind us was the ticket. An Avery Quick Set blind with fast grass mats and two Lucky Duck HD spinners rounded out the set-up. Subtle mallard quacks, chuckles, and drake whistles mixed with goose clucks, pintail and wigeon whistles locked up birds nice and close--no loud contest calling. Cold weather and West and NW winds this week should get a bunch of new birds in--probably a mixed bag of species still. We saw or heard eight flocks of specklebellies migrating on Sunday. Look for a show about one of these days of hunting on my You Tube channel (Fishing and Hunting the North Country) by later in the week.  Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      I pulled my boat for the winter today. Sure hated to have to do that, but have tons of stuff to do to get ready for the fall, winter stuff! Cliff

      Good day!  Keep the reports coming! We’re islanders and had to pull out a week ago. On my last day out by myself I boated a thick 28” walleye to close my season. We brought filets Home so my old fisherman, 95 year old dad could enjoy a good fry,  I still enjoy reading about the lake so keep reporting. Thanks, Dick

      The wife and I were up to L O W  for whole week. Great weather, good fishing and fun time. Was able to fish 7 days split up between Morris point, Long point and the river. For me Long point was the better bite. May have seen a couple members of outdoors Mn on Tuesday out of LP. Let me know if I'm right. Also met member from Wisc. at Morris point( real good guy) Anyway didn't seem to matter much what color jig caught them on every color with frozen shiner. Some days were better then others but always caught fish. Ate several meals of fish and brought fish home. Also caught a 14 in perch that I brought into taxidermist. Plan on going back at least one more time this fall . ( Too good not to).
