      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 .

Renting trancheff's cabin, june 2nd-9th, first time on west side!!

Recommended Posts

Guys week out, gotta love em.. We've made it a tradition for about 8 years now, and were gonna try the west end for the first time. I'm sure as like most years, the walleyes wont be hard to find, but being so far from black bay, the crappies might not be worth the 30-40$ in gas. Lookin at the map, rice bay might be my best option for crappies, unless were too late.....

Cliff-I'm pretty sure U were the guy that gave us a tow to voyager cove, from a I think laura bay, I orred for hours, and I think u saved me from a blistering sunburn.. mid june last year!! big blue lund, with splash guards on the back!! I owe U!

Pat and Ellen will take good care of you. You should be able to find a few crappies just north of the resort or in Bystom Bay which is quite a bit closer than Rice or Black Bays. Watch out, you may catch that Musky Bug that Pat has so bad....

Parrot,

I do not think it was me that towed you last year to Voyagers Cove. It could have been though, my memory certainly is not what it used to be! confused.gifgrin.gif

The pizza spot would be the Vermilion Club. Pretty decent pizzas. Sunday or else Monday night is "pizza night" 1/2 price pizzas! laugh.gif

Trancheffs' is a great location for fishing both ends of the lake! Niles Bay, Wolf Bay or most of the bays that are West of Oak Narrows all have a few crappies and some very nice sunfish!

darn, pizza delivery woulda been great!!

Thanx, for lettin me know I don't have to drive so far the panfish.

Wonderin if minnows are still workin, I'll definatly stop into the vff for some rainbows, is that the "Y-store"?

Feel free to stop in anytime from the 2nd-9th, plenty of dock space, and beers for ya! Just north of the bridge, If the boats there(red lund pro v, w/ 90hp evi), we're there. We'll tell u fishin spots that have worked, just not our honey hole!! Time it right, and probably a fish fry! Don't worry, I fillet, so NO BONES.

Can't wait to get there!!

The Vermilion food and Fuel is NOT the Y store. It is located in Tower.

Minnows , leeches and even a few caught on crawlers this week!

      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.

      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!!
