      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 .

Hey Jim,

Did you make it out crappie fishing the past few weeks? I was going to swing by this morning and say hi, but you weren't around. I'm into my second week now of ice fishing rehab/withdrawals. Work is totally insane, over-rated, and it is going to be a long season!

I sure would like to get out with ya sometime this summer and crush some of those Burntside Walleyes! I will give you a call sometime this summer.

Take Care,

Justin A.K.A "The Fish Master"! cool.gif

Jim took too much Geritol, Justin. With a mouth that size, you'll understand how such things can happen. His obituary will be in the next editions of the Ely newspapers.

Kidding!!!!!! grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

Sure, now I've done it. I'll just have to keep my sonar tuned for torpedos this summer on Bside. shocked.gif

No bubba, no smarting here. I have some characteristics of a rhino, including its thick skin.

You'll note from the date that it was April Fool's Day, and I was just having some fun with you, you old bugger. grin.gif

Geritol?? AHH-HAAA!!! That makes sense- He probably needs those vitamins to give himself a little boost reeling in those 14" Burntside Walleyes! Then, after he reels those monsters in, he needs to take a few days off to recuperate and order up the Ben-Gay from Sam's Club in the economy sized 5 gallon pail!!! grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

Later,

Hey Steve-

Jim is a pretty crafty guy, I will give him that. You just need to enter his brain to get the best of him! Just remember he has copious amounts of time over at the bait shop to think of these things. He is just really worried that his new Bowflex machine isn't going to get him into shape for Walleye fishing. I can understand that because that landing net gets awfully heavy when Justin is in the boat!

You got that right, Steve grin.gif When (and if) Justin gets into my boat I will have to drink a six pack of Geritol, since I'll be catching all of the Walleyes, and Justin will contribute his usual limit of Rock Bass cool.gif Don't worry JG, I'll carry the load again! smile.gif Remember a takeoff of the old song title, "You aint my Brother, you're heavy" grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

That's it, El Stevo, the gloves are off,Babeee mad.gif Just for that, I'm sentencing you and Justin to be fishing partners this summer, so I only need one torpedo to rid the world of you two vermine smile.gif I'll know when you guys are on the lake, since the boat will displace enough water to bring the level up 3 feet. grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

Jim, I'll use small words so you can un-der-stand: You ain't got game. grin.gif

P.S. -- It's spelled "vermin," not "vermine." Of course, Hillman told me you flunked spelling. grin.gifgrin.gif

I'll finally pipe in on this one and be on Jim's side. Hillman? YIKES! HA HA OH man...Steve I believe you just gave Jim enough ammo to last a life time. Hillman...oh boy. The self proclaimed "historian of Ely". shocked.gif

Anywho...have a fun time Jim. GAME ON!

Harv, I didn't give Jimmie any ammo at all, because I don't hang out with Mr. Hillman.

But Jim doesn't need me to supply him with ammo. He loads his own bullets, and he's always gotta wear those knee-high rubber boots while he's doing it because of how deep the bull---- gets. grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

I'm surprised Jim hasn't thrown a haymaker back yet. I think he's out in the garage along Burntside Lake calibrating his new torpedoes. grin.gif

Yo, Jim, don't zap my house with one. Wait until I'm alone in the boat so you spare my wife and the cats and dogs. SOMEBODY'S gotta survive to cash in on all that life insurance. grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

I don't know Steve, when you quote Mr. Hillman, it appears that you two are good Buds! cool.gif I also notice that you use the term Bubba quite a bit, must be from the series "Nash Bridges." Perhaps we're seeing a preview from the next community play. Is Mike playing your partner Cheech? grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

Bubba, I've quoted you, too, to a couple of friends of mine.

"Maki says you can catch lakers in shallow mucky bays," Foss said.

Does that mean you and I are hanging out, bubba? grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

I should have known when the going gets tough for old Maki, the fat jokes and Rock Bass comments would be flying!!! grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

Jim is just upset that his Hoveround electric wheelchair won't pull his new Otter sled out on the ice. His is also mad that Samz place isn't going to stock Ensure anymore!!!!

I have to admit that I find Steve's comments about Iron Mike particularly disturbing!!! I think they may be bestest buddies!! grin.gif Also, his bubba comments raise a red flag that he may be a fan of the TV show "Walker-Texas Ranger" That is alot of ammo The Great Outdoors can use to his advantage!!!

Oh, boy...I can't wait to see what is on here tomorrow night...... grin.gif

Later, Justin

      A boat and trailer are two separate pieces of equipment.  The trailer is titled and the boat isn’t.  You can have one and not the other for any amount of reasons. The wheelhouse is one item and titled, hence the plate.  Shelter tags primary purpose (besides raising money) is to officially verify who is responsible for it.  You can do that with a plate number. Is what it is.  But I’ve just been having more difficulties considering the license fees as just another drop in the bucket.  If ALL the money was used for managing wildlife and habitat I’d have an easier time with it.

      We caught em between 17' and 27' off a shoreline point. Definitely had more action in our shallower holes though.

      Got out today on Niles Bay. We had 4.5" to 6" of good clear ice. Only one walleye between the two of us but the tullibee and whitefish were on a tear. Even got a nice bonus pike! Hoping to dial in the walleyes over the next couple days.

      First ice fishing trip today out of morson ontario .  Fishing  was a little slow got a few walleyes and a couple of crappies . Lost what little  snow we had today made the ice really  slippery. Found 9 to 11 inches of ice.

      Dang Curt, did you take my suggestion on a drone?  Great report.

      Well, I have to pay for registration on my boat trailer to run it on the road, and the boat to run it on the lake, why shouldn't wheel houses?  I guess I don't feel bad for the wheel house guys.
    • Bryan P
      No not yesterday. 2 weeks ago when we had that first cold spell I went out on Baxter, Blue and Long and checked the ice. They were locked up but only had 1-2" inches so didn't venture out too far. Baxter probably was walkable but had open water on the back end so figured I stay off. Last Sunday I went and checked them out after that warm rainy week we had and they had open water, so yesterday I skipped checking them and went farther north. But I did notice most lakes were locked up on the drive up there. Cant wait for the local lakes to get some decent ice! 
    • JMP_37
      Wondering if big sandy is clear enough to spear fish when the ice comes on? Never done it before and would like to give it a try
