      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 heard Babbler has his road going around the crack by 12 mile to get to 16 mile or Arneson'r reef. Has anyone heard if he is going to have his bridge operational for the weekend to shorten the drive to 16 mile? Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Well as of last nite just before dark the bridge was closed still. The road now runs towards 12mile then doglegs back adding about 2.5 miles if you want to get to Arnesons or 16mile or anywheres on the N side of the crack.

Road was all refrozen anyhow! Kinda lookin like some cracks between shore and that big bridged breaker could possibly become a problem with the temps moving up and down??? They had done a bit of buldging since the weekend it looked like yesterday.

How do you think it will be to get to Arneson's Reef, or just the north side of Gull Rock?

Just talked to a buddy who is up there right now (Friday). He said it was a long, bumpy ride around the crack.

mad.gif I can vouch for that. Very slow and very rough ride to Arneson's reef on Sat. The fishing and weather made up for it though.

Was out to Arnesons and 16 on Sat. I used ATV but plenty of trucks were out and about. A fair amount of water on the roads and not as much other places. It was full raingear on the ATV. I don't think he'll keep his road open to trucks too much longer. If you do a search his phone number will come up. I would call b/4 coming up. The ice has softened up a bit but still plenty solid. Have your extension on. The bite was OK. I fished Arnesons in the AM and caught 6-8 fish 12-14" I could have kept but only kept 1 15", all on jigging spoon. Went out to 16' and missed the set on a what felt like a hog within 5 minutes and then just caught a few more. All in all I had a blast. The fishing wasn't fast and furious but I still caught about 25 fish throughout the day and we are having fresh fish for din din tonight.

      I went out for duck opener near Milaca and it was sweltering HOT.  It was even cloudy/drizzly for a portion of the morning and it was still unbearable.  The DNR needs to move all these major hunting season openers back a week.  Its pretty obvious that fall is getting hotter and hotter.  We got 6 ducks and 2 geese but so it was at least a somewhat decent hunt but that didn't make up for the fact that it was like hunting in Louisiana.

      +1 on the Smooth Moves.  I installed them on my 1860 Ranger last spring and couldn't be happier with the performance in big water.  Lot's of adjustment and they do a great job of soaking up the rough stuff.  They are a little bulky compared to the other options, but I like the fact that they rely on a mechanical adjustment rather than air.  It would be interesting to sample them side by side in the same boat to really see if one is smoother than the other.  A friend of mine has the Wave Pro and he is happy with that also.  I was close to getting the air wave, but I'm happy I went with the Smooth Moves and would buy them again over the other two.  Good luck with your decision.  No matter which way you go, your back will be happy!

      I am still fishing mostly lindys with minnows but getting a few on jig/minnows also. We boated 13 walleyes and 7 jumbo perch this morning. Largest walleye was 21" . Most came out of 24' to 38' depths, close to rocks. Cliff

      Fished Saturday morning and trolled my way a half dozen eyes including a fat 26” plus two giant smallmouth.  Went back out Saturday evening put the trolling rods down and went Jig rappin.  Caught another 6-7 fish including another nice 26+ that popped off as I fumbled to grab the net as it wallowed around next to the boat. Tricky bite for me.  Still managed my limit of nice 16” fish.  Fishing mainly rock transitions and rock structure in 16-22’ fow.   I will be back in two weeks for my final hurrah before heading west to the mountains.

      One goose and one woodie so far today.  And will probably be our total count.  Saw plenty of birds but in a new spot we didn't have dialed in until the end of the morning flights.
