      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 .

battle royale on the zumbro

Recommended Posts

We went crappie fishing on lake Zumbro last night. We did ok, found some fish but not as good as Sunday. Seemed like the fish were a little deeper today and not so much stuck on structure.

About 20 minutes into fishing my buddy Josh hooked into something that definately wasn't a crappie. 4 lb test and an ultralight pole. This fish wasn't happy about being hooked and took a TON of line out to deep water....at least 60 yards.....we ended up pulling up anchor and tracking it down and got it to the boat about 30 minutes later. Big carp. No net. we got it to the side and I gilled it and got it in the boat. 33 inches! A couple quick photos and it was released!

Fun Fun.

Keep fishing.

Someone also learned the lesson about having extra batteries for his camera....didn't he frydaddy? Thanks to modern technology, a few cell phone pictures were able to show that it really happened. Was a lot of fun with the ultralight I built last spring. Doubt it will ever be bent that much again.

Man that's a monster carp for the 4# UL gear. I'd give it 12-15lbs.

Those carp screaming runs are incredible. Fun Stuff

Has anyone noticed if the carp have started to spawn out there yet? Or if they are at least swimming around in the shallows. I want to do some bowfishing. grin.gif

muskylover9,

This one was caught on the high banks area. We latched into another one a while later but that one snapped the line on the trolling motor. Maybe 5 feet off of shore tops is where both of them hit. Possibly earlier in the day when the sun is hitting that side of the lake they would be spotable and bow huntable.

      Went out this morning and walked around and drilled a few holes.   Found between 3-6" of ice.   The areas that did not open up had 6" of good ice.    the open water areas had almost 3".   All areas are open to walking.   Some could be 4 wheeler ready by the weekend but only of you know where the fist ice is! With that being said I would still avoid these areas: Winter access to west to far shoreline and anything north of that line. summer access Anything within 200 yards of the meth hole. any last open water.     Be careful,   Don

      Well, people live all over this state and I live 4 hours away. I'm also 54 years old and have been ice fishing for a half century. Was asking a simple question with a simple answer needed. Thanks. Please someone report if they can.

      Sorry dude I tried but this page isn't most active with facebook groups being the biggest way most people share ice thickness in a realtime way.  There's only one way to really know and that's grab a spud bar and start hitting as you walk and drilling holes to see.

      Be looking at these two general areas. Thanks for heads up on south end.

      My son and I fished from 8 - 4 yesterday out of Beacon Harbor.  It was super windy so we couldn't be as mobile.  We caught 6 eyes, all under 17", in about 8' of water and another 10 after we moved out to 11'. Also a few big Perch.  Only 2 fish on dead stick and the rest jigging.  Gold or pink seemed to work the best.  Fun day! Nels

      OK thanks.  I haven’t had an issue yet.  I just got low on powder and needed primers so I decided to try the Blackhorn 209 now.  I remembered reading this post. At the C store there were plenty of Triple 7 and Remington 209 primers in the ML supplies @ 9-10 bucks/100.  The shotgun primers were running running low though and I grabbed the last 100 pack.  They’re only 4 bucks/100.  I figured it would be a cheap experiment if nothing else.

      Not a hundred percent on the age but it's a Frabill Excursion and both are in brand new condition. Not to worried about the weight of it it won't be more than a handful of times of pulling it out before driving my truck out with it. The price difference between the two is what I was looking at.

      Does anyone have any input on the kdrill on a gas auger? I have seen a few people use this setup. Do you need a special adapter to use it?
