      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 .

Warroad Access?

Recommended Posts

shae1986

Just wondering guys if you can still drive the trucks out on the warroad access there by the casino for pike fishing. Trying to decide whether i need to get the trailer and pull the wheeler up, which i dont want to do for just a day trip up there. Thanks

I went on at Springsteel yesterday with no probs. Appeared that folks were getting out at Warroad from what I could see from the N. Iffin the access at Warroad is impassable you would be able to get on the ice at Springsteel depending on just when you're planning on going of course.

Shae,

Go to springsteele and take the sharpest left turn you can take right off the access. The so called road takes you over some smaller rocks that on normal water levels I'm sure aren't visiable. Head straight NW about three miles, oh are you only pike fishing??? If so thats' where I'm giving you our info. If you have a gps on hand go until you almonst run into the main point (sorry don't know the name of it) we were out about1/4mile from what you can see is a camper up on shore in about 11ft down to 6th of water with tip ups.

Regarding quick strike rigs, I didn't purchase them but some of my buddies did before we got there and at the bait shop in town they had dead bait harnesses that are "L" shaped and stuck into the ciscos and then you placed the treple where you wanted it. This set up was AWESOME and was 100% successful compared to the quick strike system on are other tip ups. 80/20 of our pike where on live suckers so I would look into bringing up some live bait too. Between 7 guys and four days of tip up fishing we went threw about 10lbs of deadbait.

Good luck and if you want exact cordinates let me know???

Yeah this is strickly a pike fishing adventure for me and my buddy. He was up a week ago and had tough luck out of warroad so we haven't decided where to go yet. Thanks for the offer of cordinates, i hate asking for them but if you feel like sending them too me my email address is shaex001@mail.crk.umn.edu.

Also did you have any luck on live bait or mainly dead. Usually i use both, but not having to pay the money for live minnows would be nice too, but i'll probably pick some up for saftey's sake.

We also have smelt hooks, have you ever used them, i havent in probably 6 years and being 20 now i was a youngen and cant remember if they worked or not. Thanks for all your help guys.

I would like to thank you fiskyknut and especially you meat-grinder for your help. I will lay out the story for you tomorrow with pictures since i am a little too tired tonight to upload the photos. But we didn't do great by any means but had a lot of fun. We ended up catching 4 a 34, 32, 28, and a 21 inch northern, of course all released to be caught another day. Missed a couple others but i can say i was 3 for 3 on flags and catches. All fish were caught on Hairing (sp). It was a great day with probably the best weather i have ever had in my last 8 years of going up there. Thanks Again.

      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.
    • Wanderer
      Yep, that’s what I’ve heard.  I’ve used loose powder quite a bit before.  My first ML was Hawken kit gun in 50 cal.  True black powder in an actual powder horn.  Patch and ball.   The only thing I didn’t like about ML season back then is I couldn’t wear the traditional clothes too!

      Lots of fresh ice out there. With the snow we have gotten the last few days you won’t be able to see the difference between the older and newer ice so don’t forget to check. There were open water spots on most lakes 2 days ago that are now covered. CHECK for your self.  Also lots of trash already on a lake I was on, slobs, throw it in your own car if you don’t mind looking at it.

      If he is going to fish them from a kayak I would suggest getting him a boga grip that way he can get it out of the water

      Thanks for arranging this MM.  Wish I could make it.  I'm sure it'll be a great time!

      I heard of a ranger/ice castle out from the Pelican access last weekend.  Any truth to that?  Some people have no fear.

      You will like the Blackhorn powder as long as you are used to using loose powder and not pellets. It burns much cleaner making reloads much easier. I clean my muzzleloader the same way as all my other guns now. Just remember that you don't have to use as many grains of powder with the 209. The max recommended is 120 grains. I shot 100 grains of pyrodex but dropped to 90 with the 209.
