      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'm trying to line up a partner. This is a fun time and well run tourney and I don't want to miss it or miss cashing a check again! Most of my friends are Walleye Snobs though so I will have to do some arm twisting maybe!!!

Hmmmm, will the ice be off of Zbay by then?

Think Spring....It's bound to happen!

Fisky,

I'm afraid I lean toward the walleye snob side, but if you're desperate for a partner, it sounds like a good time.

Of course, you can't tell anyone I fished in a Jack tournament!

We've been doing this tournament for 10 years and the ice has always been off. A couple of years ago there was still some in the bat up by the mouth, but by the middle of the first day it was all gone. If anyone gets a chance swing by cabin #1 for a beverage that weekend.

Has it been 10 years already? I've done it quite a few times myself. The year I got second the ice was blowing in from off the mainlake into the jetty area making that area difficult for those that fish there.

Doug I'll get you a E out tonite, your jiggin on the river by now anyhow!

Do you have to register early, or can I do that when I get there on Friday?

You can do it whenever you get there, as late as Saturday morning, before it starts

I'm getting a little nervous about still having ice out there. I've got mixed emotions, i'm not sure if I want the sun to shine, or for it to rain to get rid of the ice.

Sunshine would be nice smile.gif going to be wet soon enough. But you know there could be a 1st time for a not ice out tournament. Cast your lures on top of the ice and see if you can get the jacks to jump through the old holes, or just drink beer. grin.gif

      Ice out as far as I could see today, little wind and a cool night tonight. Some wind forecast tomorrow night. It should be fine though. Here is the report   20171119_153600.mp4

      Any ice starting to form again?
    • Dirtyfisheyes
      By the look of the forecast, single digit lows at night and no snow. Should it be safe to say that the first of December would be safe for snow machines? Itching to make the trip. Also any recommendations for lodging would be helpful

      Yesterday Finn and I went hunting for ducks and I should have had 4 mallards and pair of woodies.i hit one woodie and it hit the water as Finn went to get it jumped up and flew away. Next weekend I will try again.

      Second week of December is looking good for southern Minnesota, if the current long range forecasts are close to accurate. Maybe even the first week of the month with a little luck.

      I figured I would start up a new thread for us to use for the winter now that things are starting to set up and guys may be starting to creep out on the bays and smaller water.   I did some more poking around on Pike Bay this morning and I don't have anything much new to report. We've got less than an inch of fluffy snow on the ice and things healed up after the warm front this week. I worked my way from shore out into the middle of the bay and ice was relatively uniform between 5.25 and 5.5 inches of nice clear ice. Earlier this week I checked all landings on the Tower end and everything was iced up except for open water way out in Big Bay appearing to mostly be all West of Birch/Ely islands. Not sure if all the recent strong winds from North and South have changed that status though. I'm still sticking with my original guess of December 2 for my first trip off McKinley on 5 inches.   Good luck this winter to all and Be Safe!

      extended forecasts look good up north. We won't have fish-able ice in the metro until at least the 2nd weed in December assuming no dramatic temp changes. The big Expo is Dec1-3 but temps look promising ~1.5hrs north. I wonder if the ability to go fishing might impact the amount of traffic at the show!
