      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 .

Sounds like the walleyes are small...how are the bass and northerns doing? I am fishing it for the first time in a few years this evening, any tips?

If you are fishing for bass, they are on the outside milfoil edge at the moment. You can find milfoil on the north, east, and south sides. Good luck!

Thanks, I will give it a shot. I will plan on working plastics or spinnerbaits to cover some ground, any other suggestions.

Plastics or a jig would be good. Don't be afraid to fish with the wind, since I had a more aggressive bite in the wind.

Just largemouth at the moment. The smallies were not biting the last time I was out there on my smallie holes. smile.gif

Worked in and around the south milfoil patch last night...boated 2 nice largemouth and lost a really good one at the side of the boat (all the good ones get away). I couldnt belive there was not northerns there.

Nice! Good to hear there's some LM action again out there this year.

Sluggo - were you using jerkbaits, drop-shot, shakey heads or _____ for the smallies? I was shut down on another local smallie lake the day after opener no matter what I used or how finess-ey I went.

Most of the time I get them on a pig-n-jig. However, elsewhere on other lakes/rivers I usually get them on x-raps, the bigger one's or the husky jerks.

I've got Long Lake out by Spicer for Midwest Sportsman Saturday. That will probably be enough punishment for the weekend. smile.gif

We did as well as to be expected without prefishing it. We didn't have big fish with a five pounder, and only caught four fish. We had 12.6 pounds for our four. I think 20 pounds won it. smile.gif

Sluggomaster, what did you throw the most? I was Green lake, saturday, there was a walleye tourney going also. I fished smallies, had a blast, most on beds. Long lake is a good bass lake, 15yrs ago you could get a limit of walleyes in an hour. I grew-up in New London, my parents now live on Norway lake. Someday I should fish bass tourney there. It is also a great lake for L.M. bass.

I could not get a bite on anything other than a large jig/trailer. It's the same every year. There were 26 boats, which makes that lake fish very small. I hope they take it off the schedule next year, since there is not enough water out there for that many boats. smile.gif

      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.
    • Fishing Frenzy
      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.
    • Finnish Flash
      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.
