      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 .

Anyone been out during the last couple days? We will be out and about all day tomorrow and wondering where a good place to start would be. Thinking of Pelican, and maybe White Earth. Hope the storms didnt mess with them too much.

Thanks leechbait, we have always done well there in the later summer months, but have never fished it "early" in the year. There are a few other lakes over in that are I wouldnt mind trying sometime. I don't usually fish in the area, I usually spend the weekends up on Leech, but have the chance for a day off this week and wanted to get out with ZachP.

White Earth is one of the most interesting lakes that I fish, so much structure I'll never find and remember all of it. Have a 10# 2 oz. walleye on the wall taken 5/31/1983, have been along on larger than that.

Tons of structure, same as Many Point. That would be a good lake to try also. It's tough not to pick up a couple off of that lake, In my experiance out there just find the structure ( many points ) and I always had my best luck slip bobbering or jigging until you find the right depths. Like I said it's not hard to pick up a couple but some nights are down right spectacular.

Been doing well off shore in current areas. Spot tail shiners are the bait of choice but it's slowing down. I've heard some reports that the eyes are moving into their summer midlake patterns already on some lakes. Haven't had the boat out much lately, but I'll be up to URL Friday with a fellow FM'er from Bemidji that I'm closing a loan for that day. Hope to hit the mother load of crappies, and maybe catch some eyes shocked.gif. Haven't been posting much, real busy at work and home.

I don't know what my deal is this spring, but I've been struggling big time. Yesterday was no better. A thunder boomer chased me off of E. Silent yesterday evening so I tried the night bite on Big C instead. I guess I should have just went home. confused.gif I only hooked one 20"er along with numerous smallmouth and way too many of those pesky rock bass. I was glad to see how well the new splashguards work though....can't believe I put that off so long.

I'm from Missouri and we spend 2 weeks on White Earth every year in late summer. Gets my fever up just hearing the name of the lake. Beautiful lake to fish!

Well, after some water intake problems.....we got out on White Earth by 10 am. The bite was good, the only problem was every fish we caught was 12 inches or less, never caught a eater fish. Swung over to Pelican around 4, we somewhat managed to save the day by putting three in the livewell that went about 16" and numerous 10 inchers. Nothing great but given the conditions it was somewhat expected. Hope to get a good three days of fishing in this weekend!

Awesome day on the lake. Went to Big Cormorant mid afternoon. Caught eleven walleyes. Some of the nicest fish I've gotten on that lake in a few years. Kept 16-18 inch fish and released a 24". Shiners in 20-25 feet of water. Northerns and smallmouth mixed in to keep busy.

      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.
    • FirstIce
      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?
    • Wanderer
      Are they both the same age?  Equal condition?  Do you hand drag or machine pull?  Weight will matter a lot. You really have to consider how you plan to use the house.  Happiness with the houses performance is the biggest key.   Otherwise it appears to be a trade from a $480 house to a $700 house based on new house prices if I looked at the right Frabil.

      It's not thermal. How's frabill's customer service in case you break a poll or something?
    • going4it
      The only problem I had with my frabill was its weight. It was a tank to pull and tough to put in the bed of the truck.

      Anyone else think the number of people ice fishing in the last 5 years has grown greatly in our area? To me it has and to me it seems alot harder now to find a spot of your own, or spots that have been pasted down on a lake that there arnt 5 to 50 people trying to fish! Gps doesn't help the cause either, I wonder what the future of ice fishing and the fish/ crappie population is going to look like in the next 5 to 10 years. Last year kinda shocked me to by the number of people out partying out on cedar and even the sound of subs going by in cars on the ice.. like really??! Could see the look of what is wrong with people from dads and familys out with their kids. Sorry about the rant
    • Bass Thumb
      I found exactly the same thing today. It was a steady 5" walking to the fishing spot. 3" of ice on the spot, if that. Cracks everywhere. Water pushing out of holes I had drilled. Not good.
