      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 have a 2wheel drive atv and made it out there from hwy 8 to pancake island with very little resistance. I would suggest parking off of sunset point however im not sure how the shore ice is holding up. Good Luck. There were plenty of small gills to be caught on last Wed.

Was out yesterday. The park on the point off of Hwy 8 is closed so there is not any parking available out there. Drove on where the point meets up with Hwy 8. The access was all open water but drove down the shore 10 yards and found good ice. Driving was fine but not sure I would attempt it after some of the weather we are expecting this week.

Fished near Pancake Island. Quite a few other cars out there. The fish bit continuously throught out the day. Both sunfish and crappies. Sorted through them and kept enough for a meal.

Great last trip of the year. Made it out on Saturday morning. Checked the shoreline and decided to walk instead of bring out the 4-wheeler. The fog was super thick. Headed out and drilled through 18" of good ice. Anything that was laid on the ice didn't take long to start melting in. The fish I kept even started melting into the ice. The sunfish action was non stop with a couple crappies every now and then. Some 4-wheelers made it out as the day went on. Coming off the lake, the shore ice was pretty broken up due to the 4-wheelers. A person will need a board to get to the ice from now on. However with the rain that is forcast, I think it's going to be over soon. I think I'll spend Sunday putting away the ice fishing gear and thinking of open water.

There were some guys out on N. Center this afternoon, around noonish. Temp in the vehicle said 68 degrees, I don't know if they had enough ice to get back to shore or not.

I'm thinking about driving back out there tomorrow to see if they're still fishing the point or not..... confused.gifgrin.gif

      Been getting a few on the weed line, early am when there's a little breeze, since the surface temps started coming down. That was about this month's full moon, for me. A very slow troll, fishing vertically, & just a 1/16 oz. jig.

      Thanks for the update cigarguy- were you lindy rigging?
    • CigarGuy
      Neighbor and I went out in Wakemup for a couple hours tonight and got a 18" and 19" and had a nice one come unbutton on the way in....Leaches and crawlers.  That's good for me!  20 - 34' off a break line.  Del, working on the last flight of the steps-was looking for you to stop by and help!

      I used lead core on Friday and had a ball catching walleyes of all sizes.  I started in the morning and stayed out until I just got tired in the afternoon.  I probably pulled in as many as 20 or so.  My formula was:  90 feet of line, 19-24 ft of water, #5 rattling split deep shad rap.  Silver color.  I kept it right at 2mph.  I also did much better when I pumped the rod in a regular cadence.  Keeping it in the rod holder didn't produce near the fish.

      Ace, I hope you enjoy your retirement.  I hired you one time and my boy and I had a good time.  I appreciate the hard work you did on putting us on fish.  Good Luck and maybe "Little Ace" can continue the family business some day!   Michael Theis

      Trolling or casting jigs and spinners(silver or gold are best for pike IMO) near the weeds, in bays, etc, cranks, and top water buzz baits around weedy areas are how I get most of my pike. Use a leader. Orange jig heads with a sparkly yellow twister tail and a jumbo leech gets me more pike than any other method. Your mileage may vary.
