      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 tossed a dart and it hit on whiteface for opener. I have fished it once before in the center finger. Has anyone fished the other fingers? Is it tough to navigate?I thinking that most fish will be up where the river dumps in. Any thoughts would be great.

I have a cabin on Island so usually Im fishing there but venture to boulder or whiteface when the traffic on Island gets to me. I think fishing on whiteface is better than island for sure and you do catch bigger keepers also. Most fish I catch on island are under 16" but whiteface seems to have a popular class that are 16" to 18". The structure of whiteface seems more fishable it seems easier to find fish unlike Island that has a lot of structure that doesnt hold fish. If I were you I would move my dart down and fish that other lake.

Just watch out for rocks. I was up at the cabin last weekend and the water is LOW!!!! Not to say it will be this bad on opener, but it wont be able to come up that much in 3 weeks.

Island is between 3' and 4' low. Which is higher than it was last year. The last two years we have got the rain we needed the last 2 weeks before the opener. We can only hope the same will happen this year. Or the tyee will stay in the garage for a couple extra weeks. Its even easier to drink barley pops when somebody else is drivin'!!!.

fisherlanding, with the water so low I do not think there will be much flow from the river. They might be up in that bay but I would look for shallow wind blown points and structure. There is a lot of structure and yes watch out for rocks. The locals mark some shallow reefs with jugs so watch out for them. good luck.

yukon, I didn't know if the walleyes tried to run up the river or not. I was thinking at the mouth of the river as a staring point. I'll check it out but I think you might be right with the water level being low. Have you ever fished the east or west finger before? Are they worth checking out? What about near the dam? Just looking for a few places to try you know. laugh.gif

I have never spent a lot of time over by the dam. Most of my time has been in the middle finger. I have never had to stray far from the campground access to find walleyes

      Thanks snowfighter. Coming up Dec 9 weekend.my brother took some fish outta little turtle the weekend of Oct 7 th. Sounds like from your end of the lake. Seen pics, some decent pike.

      With 2 trout stamps you can keep double your limit. You heard it here first on the interwebs!  Me and Mr Williams will swing by and say Hi this winter in Ely.   That is, if we can get around your sled!!  Happy Thanksgiving!

       There is probably not going to be much ice to speak of  if the forecast holds true. They are talking 50s on Friday, Sunday and Monday. Any ice we did have will most likely be gone, unfortunately.
    • snowfighter
      Haven't been out looking but things have been froze up for awhile. Heard there was some out on Bowstring last week.

      Wife you dummy  I know the problem first hand !!
    • MJ1657
      It's that time of year. Cone on up and see if you can claim the Nord Lord. Spearing in the Third River Flowage in Winnie. Pizza party Friday night in the lodge potluck in the ice Saturday at noon.   Any questions hollar.

      Saw something interesting on forest lake this morning...lake was completely locked up, yet someone had launched their boat and was trudging through the ice! That’s dedication! Anyone have any ice updates to report?

      2 Trout stamps.  Did I miss something and need to go back and get another?
    • Wanderer
      The 200 foot rule gets me a little but it has to be defined somehow what is occupied and what isn’t.   So for a wheelhouse we get to buy tabs to have on the road and a sticker to have it on the ice and go away for a little while.  Seems pretty close to double taxation since any LE can find out who the owner is from the current plate. Plus the spear shack that I might want to keep up over the weekend.  2 tags plus license. Combination sports license 2 trout stamps Waterfowl stamps Pheasant stamp  Turkey license (stamp now included) Deer license for all seasons   The bucket is getting heavy with all the drops in it.
