      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 have put in at Hunter's and at Fisher's on the east side w/o any problems. Any recommendations for the west side or any other side for that matter? I will gladly pay a launch fee rather than risk being beached or replacing a prop.

Thanks in advance.

If your on the west side, I always use Terry's. He is right in St.Albans bay. If you launch from there you are close to lots of different structure:flats, gravel, rocks, sand, or mud. Had good luck there Monday and Tuesday.

Terrys by far is the way to go. We were out there last weekend on Saturday in the 3 foot rollers and his little harbor was a calm as it could be. I felt bad for those people who needed to load their boat at the garrison access with the waves pounding the shore. Well worth the $10 if you ask me. I'll be using Terry's again this Saturday. I just might bump into some of you out there. Good luck to all who head out.

I was one of those unlucky suckers on Saturday. Took a chunk out of the prop when the wave bottomed out and I hit bottom. That wind and temp drop was brutal.

Used the Agate Resort access on Saturday. Not impressed. First time I have ever had a problem getting it on the trailer coming in. I know the water levels dont help. But the slope of the landing is way too steep. Plus, i had to park my trailer on the highway. Going back to the south end this weekend, Cove Bay public access is always smooth for me. Plus the price is right. Save the $10 to spend on tackle I don't really need.

FYI The south ramp at Agate is significantly less steep. I had the same problem with the north ramp if that is the one you used. I used the south ramp the next time and it was fine.

I have used Red Door on the north side twice this spring and it is VERY nice. They have the sand dredged out to the lake too. 2.4 feet was the shallowest I saw. Great for any kind of wind - other than a strong straight South perhaps. Plenty of area on the resort or on nearby streets to park. 2 porta-potties right by the harbor too.

Is the casino access too shallow this year? Ive always used it in years past but havent tried it yet this year.

Hunters Point, Fishers Resort are the two most easiest acesses on the east side of the lake next to Macs Twin Bay.

On the north end Red Door and Myr Mar are going to be your best bet for boat access to the lake.

Terry's has probably the best access on the west side of the lake and then there is Eddy's which in my oppinion is fare at best.

aoan the south end Izaty's, Lyback's, the Cove are going to be your best choices.

Fish On!!!

      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.

      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.

      Can anyone recommend a place nearby the Metro Area where a person can take their air rifle to sight in the scope since you cannot shoot them in city limits.  Plus, probably not smart to just pull up to a random field to sight in, either.  Thanks!!
    • bbfenatic
      Went out early Sunday on smaller lake before the Vikes game...5" of good ice and it was growling so making more before it warmed up. Caught a bunch...pic of the dozen crappies we kept...but it was fast and furious from 7-9am

      Happy thanksgiving Cookie to you and your family!!!  Glad to see you made it through the summer and are getting ready for the long winter on such a Grand Lake!
