      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 .

Starting to wonder ????

Recommended Posts

So, I'm just starting to wonder if anyone thinks that there may not be ice out before the opener? I hope not seeing as how I schedule my vacation for opening week, but last I heard there was still 4' of ice out there. On another note, where do I find the poly (or whatever is used) that one puts on the bottom of ice house runners. I have to do some off season remodeling and thought that would be a nice addition. My runners are 16' long and 4 1/2" wide. Also thanks to everyone that participates in this forum. I can't even began to say how valuable this has been in the 3 years that I have been coming up there. This last ice season was fantastic thanks to all of you, and a special thanks to my good friends Brian and Penny at Lake Road Lodge who looked out for me and helped me out all winter.

I'm starting to wonder the same thing myself. Spring better get busy here one of these days. On the plus side, I can remember two different late ice outs 02, and 97 I believe, and they were the best pre-spawn/big fish bites I've ever seen. My wife even caught an 11lber, and she fished for like an hour with me. I lost track of how many horses we caught those 2 springs, but it was really something.

I put my golf mat out on the front walk today, and smacked a 1/2 dozen balls off into no where in particular... That should either make winter come around again, or turn up the heat... I'm hoping for the later...

Not sure where you are located but I got my runner material at a company called Cope Plastics, you can find it real easy on the web. They pretty much have anything you need.

I live in Duluth and drive to the Cities about 2-3 days a week. People around here started doing golf related activities after one 80 degree day. Guess what the result of that was!! (and it wasn't golf courses opening)

      Pearl Lake has been lights out for crappies in that 10+ inch range this year, finally,  find 13-16 fow and then drill holes until you see suspended fish. When you find them I like a 1/10oz. Swedish pimple (silver/glow) with 2 waxies, keep it above the fish and they’ll come up for it.

      I heard reports Friday of 3-5 inches out of Bayport.

      I'm on vacation until January 2nd if anyone wants to meet up and go fishing let me know I've got all my own gear 95% of the time I fish alone. Willing to drive anywhere or help with gas or what ever. Going to try a local lake in the morning for some eyes and panfish unless someone has any other suggestions. Mostly a CPR guy but it's also nice to occasionally bring some home for the family.

      Still pheasant hunting and still seeing lots of birds!  Went out an afternoon this past week and saw about 75 in 2.5 hours.  Went home with my 3 roosters.  Everything is froze good now so its easy walking and there's fresh snow.

      Welcome to FM, Some lakes near you that are good and have some quality  are Ann,Knife and Fish to the East and the Briggs chain to the West.  Look for green vegetation or mud basin bug hatches for action.

      Sure helps to find them when you have some of the top panfish anglers around helping

      Good fish Rick way to find some quality fish in a highly pressured area. Takes skill to be able to accomplish that. Maybe run into you one of these days out there
    • IceHawk
      Nice fish guys looked like a good time was had . That lake has some quality for sure. Figured you guys would dial them in.

      Not new to ice fishing but I can't seem to find the fish anymore around my neck of the woods in foley mn. so if anyone could give great insight of lakes times and maybe hints of baits and area of the lake would be awesome.
