      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 got a question. I was wondering what is the average weather up there threw the year. I will be moving up there in about 5-6 months for college. Right now i live in indiana but i do go up there to visit my dad in the east central part of the state. I was just wondering what it is like up there and how good or bad the weather gets. if you have any input it would greatly help. Thanks.

Well if you move up here in 6 months, you'll be just in time for next winter. smile.gif

Imagine the coldest weather you have ever seen in Indiana and subtract about 20 degrees from that.

Winter goes from late October to April, infact we just got 5 inches of snow last night and the temp this morning was 11 degrees. You'll want to get a tank heater for your car, for those cold mornings when the temp drops to 40 below zero, with wind chills in excess of 60 below zero. One thing you need to remember is winter up here in the great white north is a serious matter. If your car goes in the ditch, or breaks down on some back road, the weather can kill you, if you're not prepared for it.

Anyway, have a great time at school. smile.gif

You are moving to Minnesota!! There IS no average weather!! grin.gif

120 degrees at times during the summer and as low as 60 below zero on occation in the winter. shocked.gif

Great place to live though.

Any temperature can be fairly comfortable outside if you are dressed right. Dress wrong in the nasty weather and you will suffer! crazy.gif

Welcome to the North Land.

Eh, don't let the weather scare you. It's a beautiful area and like was said, dress appropriately any time of year as you would in Indiana.

As long as you enjoy doing things outdoors, you'll enjoy your environment.

And as a former Iowan, the weather here is much colder but it is not nearly as nasty as the cold that you flatlanders get in the midwest. We get a dry cold without the constant wind that you are use to. And as Ace states, if not prepared, you could be in big trouble. I assume you are headed to Ely. Lots of things for the outdoorsperson to keep busy with.

Welcome to the area

Fishing is great up on vermilion for walleyes, muskies,pike,perch almost anything your after. If your looking for trout miners lake in ely is supposed to be very good and there are several other options up there. There are a lot of good fishing lakes in Ely. I believe there is also quite a bit of public hunting land up there, but i dont think the deer population is as high up there, some grouse though.

Fishing and hunting is great in the Ely/Tower area.

Lots of public hunting land and more lakes and streams to fish then you will ever find time to fish! grin.gif

You will have a great time here.

The deer population isn't high? That poop in my yard didn't come from cows, and those reddish brown things jumping across the road last summer, and standing in herds in the fields didn't look like cows either. smile.gif

Well I hunt up around Cook and we hardly see any deer. It just changed from a lottery permit area last year, I just meant to say that there arent as many up there as there are farther south. I said the deer population isnt as high wink.gif

      Just curious if people are finding fish moving into fall patterns yet or still finding them in more summer locations?  I've been finding good sized panfish in deeper water myself around more mid lake structure. Most of the lakes I've been on are still pretty green with algae and weeds. 
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Captain Acorn, I use Gamagatu  octopus hooks. Size 4 for crawlers and size 2 for minnows. Red, black, chartreuse, and pink , mostly red and black. I use orange and green glow soft beads at times. (Worked today!) Cliff

      This weekend near grand marais on thursday and Friday the no see ems were out. A few skeets but once it cooled down the no see ems were gone. Fished a lake that known for horrible bugs and it was not bad.

      That's correct.  For now.

      We did well today from 1-4pm on an underwater point. Finally found some fish in a semi-sheltered area. Last few days have been tough to control the small light boat with all the wind. Most caught on pink jigs in 21-30ft.  Cliff I did try the circle hook lindy today with the big minnow and nailed the first bite I had. Next 2 bites grabbed it hard but dropped it. Work in progress!

      Any where from 12' to 30' humps. Bass and a few walleyes setting up on top and sides of these humps. Cliff
