      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 .

Auger Extensions

I need an extension for my Jiffy auger and I see that they make a 6" - 12" adjustable extension as well as a standard 12". It seems like such a small difference between 6" and 12". Should I be getting the adjustable extension?

If you ever go to Lake of the Woods in March you will want one that can go to 12". I have a 12 in on mine for in my crank up fish house since it is so far off of the ground then I don't have to bend over so far when opening holes. I even have one that is about 18" long just incase. There is nothing worse than getting to where you want to fish and not be able to get thought the ice.

If you are only going to buy one get the 12". Obviously, you may not need it all the time but when you do you will be glad got it. For the few times you need an extension, a 12 is the way to go.

Thanks for the input guys! IcePro - Your argument made sense so I took your advice and got the adjustable. The fact that FleetFarm had no Jiffy auger extensions and Gander Mountain only had the adjustable made my decision a little easier.

I picked up a Strikemaster 12" extension today at Lakes Gas Co. 39th & Washington N.
Mpls. They had 3 of the 12 inchers left.
$7.99+ tax. They also had 20 inchers.
I think the guy said about $10 or $11 bucks.
Good Luck...

Booth extensions are the same in overall length. The 6"-12" adjustable just has an addtional hole drilled in it.

Go with the adjustable and you won't be second guessing yourself.

The extensions from Strike Master are hollow tubing. Jiffy is sold steel. That is why choosy icefisherman prefer JIFFY.

Thank you for your comments Icepro.
I posted the information because I've seen the same auger extensions going for $18 at a retailers name that is frequently posted through out this site. Just trying to pass along a savings to the members of this site that use strikemaster as do I.
Good Luck...

    • Yup. Like a shopping cart.
    • Well, being you are not engaging your hamstrings on that treadmill, and you're TRAINING on it!!, you can pretty much guarantee your feet sliding out from underneath you, slipping on the ice next time you encounter it.  Thank you treadmill, best piece of equipment in the gym, for an orthopedic surgeon.   Let me guess, you like to walk slow on it, so its good for you.....?  
    • Thanks RD!  Good info. That's an interesting technique with the Chatterbait.  I will try it.  If you don't mind -- what kind of trailer do you like with the Chatterbait for that technique?  There will be 3 of us fishing so it will a little tight.  Probably will only bring 3 rods...  I am thinking a Jig rod, T-rig rod (plan to try a Nekko rig with this as well)  and one moving bait rod (Spinnerbait, Chatterbait, Buzzbait, Frog, Cranks, etc.)  The great thing about Ottertail county (like others in Mn), there are a thousand lakes... we will hit 2 or 3 a day.  If we have good conditions (low pressure/moderate wind) we will probably try Musky on Battle Lake.
    • Mahi are hard to catch in Minnesota.  Specialized equipment is required. 
    • Any recent reports?
    • Down this way I have been getting most my fish around weed edges and weed clumps. Trigs for good edges and chatterbaits worked on bottom or over the weeds, kinda how I would fish a jig. Water around here is pretty murky right now. Docks have been good on those lakes with dirty water and not so many weeds.
    •   You'd poke yer eye out. 
    • Hi, from the Northwest Angle! Water temps are staying consistently in the low 70’s.

      Stateside, walleye fishing has been good from Lunatic to Garden Islands. The edges of islands and reefs in 22-29’ will provide walleye, perch and occasional large pike. Most productive methods have been minnows on gold spinners and deep diving crank baits in UV tiger, clown and blue/chrome.

      Canadian walleyes can be had jigging minnows with gold, pink, and chartreuse on edges of reefs.  Monkey Rocks is holding many schools of fish currently, as well as, reefs south of Deepwater Bay. Bottom bouncing outside these reefs will produce fish as well. Muskie fishing has slowed a little, however nice fish in upper 40’s can be caught in “windows” of time, usually coinciding with Majors and Minors.

      We hope to see you for some fantastic fall fishing & hunting!
    • He isn't going to set the world on fire, but only been a minus guy 3 times in his entire career. While Scandella is a -10 for his career. Quincey is more physical so I think that will be good. There is probably more upside with Scandella, no, definitely there could be, but he was really terrible last year. Perhaps Quincey gets paired with Dumba. That would be good for Dumba because when he was paired with Leopold he had his best stats following picking him up.
