      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 lucked out. We were originally going to go to Ike Waltons on Yellow for the WI opener, but they were booked and next week (the MN opener) was the next opening. We booked a cabin for next week instead. Dodged a wet, rainy bullet. Last year we went on the same weekend. 30's and rainy, yuck.

I would like to say I am, but instead I am sitting in sunny florida on my balcony smoking a cigar, drinking an MGD and reading fishing reports. Unforunately, we will be coming home tomorrow which is ok cause it's hot down here and we have to see the little rascals that have been driving grandma adn grandpa crazy all week........

Went home for lunch, went to Gander, came home and got the gorrila charger installed on my truck and on my boat, cleaned up my firearms from this afternoon,it is 9:53 and I am sitting down for a beer...pretty good saturday........

i was out off and on all day. i live on the southside of the TC...and only got shut out for a couple of hours due to thunder and lightning. no crappies though...uuggh! caught plenty of Sunnys - none of them were anything to write home about.

i did however, get to see a nice domestic dispute when the wife backed the trailer in the water wrong, and the guy strated yelling at his wife. once she had it in the water, she had to take over and get the boat on the trailer...and she did a nice job. priceless...the guy was really upset - very funny.

Take a load old fish house scraps to be disposed, go get the camper out of storage and bring it back to life for opener, pick up some new flouro line, and mow the lawn when it quit raining and hurry to the compost heap before it closes. While the last item is iffy, most of what I did yesterday is contributing to getting on the water. smile.gif

I went out and had a good time. Fish were biting lightly and that made it a bit of a challenge. The mild Minnesota spring zephyr was a tonic for the bones otherwise.

The Grebe

Worked yesterday morning for awhile, came home and put the equipment away, cleaned up and the Mrs. Grebe and I headed up to my sisters on Mille Lacs. I was going to try to take a few casts from shore in a couple of shallow areas, but that was out of the question.

Nice white caps on the west side thats for sure! Everyones hair was horizontal to the deck! Even the fuzz on the bald guys was laying over!

We visited and had a bunch of laughs, hit the casino for a couple of hours and pointed it back home....pretty laid back, thats for sure.

This wind can die down anytime it wants! Sure puts the damper on things...even the driving is an adventure! I wouldn't want to be pulling my boat, the way it threw my Ranger around.

      2 Trout stamps.  Did I miss something and need to go back and get another?

      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.

      Really no different than using your boat.  $14,000 fish house and $14.33/year is going to kill you?? What gets me is at the lake we are at in the summer, mostly out of state people in the campground and all of their boats, never leave that lake and they are all licensed out of state and not in MN.  That is a chunk of money the state does not see.

      Great news to hear! Hopefully it will make enough tonight and hope it isn't going to get as warm as they say. Fingers crossed!

      Was hoping to come up with a 1/2 ton and a 16ft wheel house Dec. 1st.  Any thoughts if the ice will be think enough to go out of Hillmens?

      Took a drive around Lake Osakis earlier. It appears the cold and calm winds we had last night made a lot of ice. From what I could tell it appeared the lake was locked up except there was a small open area in Manthey's Bay that had a couple trumpeter swans swimming around and another small area in front of Holiday Resort that had some ducks swimming around. The rest was all ice, thin ice. Don't know if it will hold up over the next 5 days. High of 38 tomorrow, 46 and showers on Friday with high winds, 36 Saturday, 44 Sunday and 44 Monday. The lows over night aren't going to dip very low. If it was a few inches thick I wouldn't be to concerned, but as thin as it is, could be bad.

      Not by itself it won't but they raised the price on licenses for everything. Once you add it all up I'll bet you never got that big of a raise at your job. I paid for an ATV license since they first came out and we didn't get squat for it for over 20 years. What a joke, not to mention debacles like Mille Lacs Lake management. AAARRGGHHH!!  I gotta quit now before I pop a vein.
    • JerkinLips
      Thanks for the updates.  Think I will play it safe and wait until Thursday, November 30 to go out from McKinley Park.

      7" of good clear ice in the couple holes I drilled in Pike Bay this morning.

      not sure why its not showing I'm posting? Anyway walking out on the south shore gets you in deeper water quicker. Yes they do bite on red lake during the dark. I hardly ever go on the lake early ice unless Buddy Hillmen needs my help. Once I drive on the lake with blue thunder I will be on her just about everyday un  tell mid march if mother nature cooperates.
