      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 Back!!!!!!!!

It's been a while since I posted here. 1 week away from my 1st trip of the year.....and my blood gets boiling again.

Brian, I'll call you soon. I want to book 2 days with you at the end of July, beginning of August. Hope all is well.

Windy, are you ever coming into Stoney Point? Brad and I had lunch with Harold Baines at the Point 3 weeks ago, and he's coming back with Jermaine and Ozzie. Boers and Bernstein from the Score did a live remote on May 4, Illinois Outdoors TV taped 2 shows at the Point. I don't think you've been there since we remodeled and better hurry up and see it because we're moving (same with you Geno). We're going to build a free standing 12,000 square foot facility on our lake along 191st street right on the waterfalls.......outdoor seating and whatnot. We need more space!!!!!!!!!! For now, mention Fishing Minnesota . Com and get 1 free appetizer. (can I do that on this site?)

As for is the lake this year. Water up, down? Fishing good, bad? PMTT qualifier again in August?

What's going on with Tom's Harbor?

My Sox better start hitting or it's going to be a long year!

I will get in again. Hey, looks like we will be up at Cass the same time. I have Brian booked for half day morning trips on Sunday July 22nd, Sunday July 29th Monday July 30th and Tues July 31st. The dates may be a day off but the days are correct. We will be staying at Wishbone from July 21st for two weeks. We should plan on hitting the waters together and maybe we could do a trip with you, me and Brian. I would split a trip with you if you would like. Doesn't matter what we fish for, it would be a nice trip. Let me know. Talk to you soon.

Welcome back Jim.

Moving? after just remodeling you've already outgrown it?

Congrats. One of these days I'll get back to your place.

PS When Ozzie visits, I say you bring him a nice plate of Pirrahna (sp?).

Lets not talk baseball...very sore subject this year. Gene, I did like your joke though...

I think after the double on muskies Jim meant he wants to book a couple of What is this crazy talk about moveing the bar? I haven't even been to the current one since its completion! Sounds like things are good Jim and Brad...I am very happy for you both and looking forward to seeing you and the family.

Musky opener needs to hurry up and get here...walleye taste good and that is about where I draw the line. Now if we just had some smallmouth in Cass, that would make the lake a better destination.

Tom's is just houses now from what I know...all private propery. Gotta run!

      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?

      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!
