      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 .

Ice out?

Recommended Posts

Guest

Keep posted here to as the current ice and boat ramp conditions.

I've quit ice fishing. I won't push rotting ice. I won't put out a ladder to reach ice.

Right now I predict it will be at least two and a half weeks before you can launch a boat off a trailer.

As soon as I hear of a ramp in, I'll post.

We are not much closer to ice out now than we were last week. Temperatures never got over freezing and we didn't get the rain we expected. The ice is beginning to show signs of wear due to the absorption of solar energy but not from warm air.

The open water near bridges and culverts even re-froze last week. It is extremly dangerous near those areas so be sure were you are.

No access with vehicles was noted. People are using ATV's and walking. Several are launching car toppers into the open water.

The ice is real dark and beginning to open in spots near the shorelines. The areas around the bridges have opened up quit a bit with several folks casting from shore and some cartopper boats.

Very little ice fishing activity today.

AAAAARRRGGHHH as Charlie Brown would say when Lucy pulled the football away as he tried to kick it.

That is how I feel when I think of what Ma Nature is doing to us who want to fish out of our real boats.

We have seen two snowfall events here in the past couple of days, a three and a one incher. Temps are in the low 40's, wind is light, and the sun does not want to shine.

On the flats here near Minnewaukan, it had open up about 100-200 yards off shore, but the wind pushed the ice back. Part of the Mauvais Coulee even re-froze.

It will not take much to get the ice off but when will enough be enough?

It could be anyday now!?!? confused.gif

The ice situation has improved greatly overnight. The West Bay (Minnewaukan Flats) are almost open. 25 MPH winds have pushed the ice around quite a bit. Believe me, it was wonderful seeing whitecaps again. We should be able to get safely in on Wednesday weather permitting. As for docks I don't know. I plan to get the transon wet at least tommorrow and fire up the Mercs.

Other parts of the lake vary. They should follow suit and be open by this weekend.

Yippee!!!

Yesterday the East Bay and East Devils Lake still were iced over with rotted ice. However, with 45 MPH winds today I would guess they are open. 4 foot waves will do that. So I will officially say the ice is out on Devils Lake.

No docks were in place with the exception of the Casino of which I didn't see but am taking a guess. Grahams Island dock is due to be put in this week I was told when I stopped in to get a season pass. The other docks will be a hodge podge due to the parties responsible for them. Record low temps are predicated for Thursday night with highs for the weekend not to great. Uf Dah!!!

    • Buddie runs the blue bit gas Nills and Tanaka powerhead and he also told me they no longer make them. He bought another one off a guy just for a backup. Thinking maybe just the gas ones are gone  but possibly both, Interested to hear what Frank says. 
    • ajust in the controls of the radio????
    • Now I’m convinced. I made a shuttle for my Helix but I couldn’t get the settings right until yesterday. Love it with no interference with a Showdown right next to it. Still need to get the ice ducer for it. 
    • Thanks!  I went and spoke with the DMV, I was given a sheet for homemade trailers so I can itemize the parts.  Then I need to add up the values to pay sales tax on.  She said I can write "on-hand" for the parts so no receipt is needed. Just posting for reference.  
    • I believe the one I had was just a model #77 but in .22 cal.  It was a very nice rifle but a little heavy to carry squirrel hunting. It was not cheap either. My guess is I traded it for something else that caught my fancy. You know how that goes.
    • As I remember the round was developed by Col. Townsend Whelan.  It was well thought of at the time and could be loaded up to some serious heavy duty stuff,  big bullets etc.  It was favored in heavy cover since  it was thought of as a brush busting load. I am pretty sure it was available in at least one commercial rifle (Rem?) but it has long ago faded away as newer calibers etc. surpassed it. Am not sure the ammo was available commercially, but it would not take much of your time to  check it out. I'd start with the Col. and go from there.It had its strong supporters. The 35 Remington has a lot more going for it than the 30-30.
    • What kind of speakers and how are the speakers mounted? Sometimes they have to be in somewhat of a "box" to create the bass. 
    • sent him a note earlier
    •   I have a Nils and love it, would recommend it to anyone. Although I've never used the K-Drill, I've seen enough positive reviews to feel confident you really can't go wrong with either one. The only exception is if you're reopening holes a lot (especially if you have a permanent house). The K-Drill seems to be better for that. 
    • You need to go to the dmv and register it as a homemade trailer.
