      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 .

Fishable Easter Weekend?

Recommended Posts

tearin' lips

I realize that there are alot of factors involved, but do you lucky quys who are up there right now think that there will be fishable ice over Easter weekend. Everything has basically went down here in Duluth. Hoping to get out once over Easter Break.

Take Care and Good Luck Fishing!

The local CO said some are still driving vehicles out but from now on we'll be taking wheelers if anything. I'd guess the ice will be okay by next weekend yet.

HI T.L.,(A.K.A...B.L.),

I TELL YOU WHAT, IF IT KEEPS RAINING, YOU WON'T HAVE ICE THAT WILL BE SAFE. I'M GUESSING THE LANDINGS WILL BE SHOT, SO T.L., YOU MIGHT WANT TO PLAN ON FISHING IN YOUR BOAT. OF COURSE, THIS COMES FROM SOMEONE WHO FELL THRU ONCE AND WAS IN THE WATER 28 MINUTES & LIVED TO TELL ABOUT IT., THAT WAS ENOUGH WARNING FROM MY MAKER.

SINCERELY, YOUR BUD,

THE FISHMEISTER

Fair enough...I will take it from the experts. F.M, you don't have to tell me twice. I certainly don't want to go through...It has absolutely been pouring down here in Duluth. Just for kicks I called the local resort that I normally go out of on Fish Lake just to see if it was still fishable. A ten foot gap opened up on the shoreline in the last 24 hours. We have had easily over four inches. RIDICULOUS!! I guess things have to end, but I have a hard time letting ice season go!

Hopefully I will see you guys next weekend! Play it safe and Good Luck Fishing!!

It rained off and on here the last few days but it hasn't totaled more than a half inch. Forecasted low temps for the next week are between 9 and 24 so that'll slow down the thawing. How about this - come back prepared to get out on the ice but follow somebody else out. And the backup plan could be in the boat on the river or the lake near the bridge.

Hey TL,

Drove full size suburban out last couple days. Lots of ice, but yes the access is getting bad. Will be atv travel for me here on out, but definately will still be ice fishing for awhile. My group Caught some big pike (14lb and 18lb) being the biggest. Definately big pike time.

F.M.-- I like the way you think! That might not be such a bad idea.

Uffda, I had thought about fishing the river too, but that was my backup plan...I don't like crowds.

If weather permits would you gentlemen be interested in going out and catchin' some 'eyes? I guess we'll play it by ear...

Take Care and Good Luck Fishing!

I'm planning to be in the Falls Friday-Sunday. I wouldn't mind tagging along, if you don't mind. I've got a wheeler or sled. The forecast looks like snow, next few days.

F.M and Uffda, I lost your numbers when I lost my phone...if you get this drop me an e-mail at bluebill7788@hotmail.com with them. I am hoping that we are still able to get out, I like fishing hardwater way too much! grin.gif

Hey TL,

Looks like it will be a go for you guys this weekend with the cool temps. Access is sketchy at best, but pretty nice sheet of ice out there for atv traffic. Fish are really going too! Good Luck to you guys! We'll have to hook up and chase some fish one of these days! The early season spot I was fishing is going again early and late. Fishmeister knows where I'm talking about. Good Fishing Guys!

Hey TL,

This unfortunatley will be a tough weekend for me to break away as I'll be heading out to visit. We'll definately have to get out though. Good luck on your spot tonight! the slight moderation in temps should have them going good.

      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
    • Wanderer
      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.
    • huntnfish
      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.
