      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 .

Sunburn!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Recommended Posts

Who would have thought the I should have brought sunscreen up to the pond with me this weekend!!! was on the ice for 10+ hours on Saturday and didn't realize the burn until I got back to the shack on shore!! Ouch!! braved the crack on the west side and hit a few different spots, but only managed a few nice fish. drilled over 100 holes for the weekend but the bite was tough for us. they were here, but getting them to take was another story!! this was my last trip for the year. it's pretty fun having the entire lake to myself! On friday night when I was out, I honestly didn't see another living soul on the lake. Saturday I saw some traffic, but still pretty light.

Sunburn can happen and did for me too. Took me by surprise as well.

The sun had no effect on me Sunday, but I did still get burned twice: nothing but the cutest little perch stealing all my bait all day AND my van broke through the 2" crust over 6" of water at Mile & 1/4 reef on the south end. Thank goodness "Big Daddy" was home to answer the pleas of a foolish late ice driver.

One word of advice for anyone venturing onto the big pond: STAY OFF THE ROADS! Water ponds up between the snowbanks and refreezes, leaving me spinning my 2-wheel drive tires to no avail. Also watch out for previous perm house locations as they can be thin, too.

Otherwise, as you stated, it was nice to have the entire pond (at least as far as my low power binox could see) to

myself!

I spent Saturday night on the couch with a icepack on my face. 8a.m. - 6p.m. was all I could take. Picked up a few nice perch on South gravel. Moved to July Bar...Nothing. Moved to the Boot and caught 8 eyes right on top in the middle of the day. We wanted to eat, so we moved to 7 mile and did pretty good on the inside turn on the NW thumb (32 FOW). 10 nice Jumbos made a great meal for me and my brother-in-law. It's open water time for me.

      As far as I know, never been there.  I know it's great for splake, browns and lakers.

      A return client for a couple years brought fish grips with him... After watching him mangle a couple fish I asked him not to bring them anymore. Big fish need more care when landing in my experience. I hand land most muskies. This helps with not bringing a green (not ready) fish into the boat to hurt itself and the boat. With musky fishing growing in popularity I'm noticing a lot more fish with net scars from green fish. For a young musky angler learn correct technique early. The scars after a 4 fish day are a badge of honor. One of the best gifts I've received for my musky gear is a good pair of wire cutters. I use them to cut hooks in an emergency or out of a poorly hooked fish. Or if you can find it...a jar of musky slime cologne, my wife loves it. Ha! Good luck

      I fished shakopee lake in onamia on monday it had ten inches of good ice. Lots of air bubbles but seemed solid. I would guess most lakes in the area have enough to at least walk on but u can never trust ice so be carfull bring spud bar and ice picks and a friend just in case

      Thanks for the shout out Moose.  I have plans to go out this weekend but to another lake.  I’ll ask if the other party wants to stick to those plans or head east instead.
