      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 .

Between school and work Lisa has not had a lot of free time and if there is a little free time then she has to study. To make matters worse starting on Monday she will have to start dissecting a cat so I am going to bet she just might be a little moody when she gets home. I think I better get her a nice bottle of wine to help get unwind from that ordeal. I have to get going now. Heading to Winnie and see if I can find some walleyes with a friend of mine.

Hey Guys,

Personally I have been so busy with work. I have been doing 11 hour days on Fridays because my boss is taking a class. I will be at the ice house thing on Saturday but may make a run up to Mille Lacs to do a launch on Saturday night. We will see how things go. Bear with us guys, we try.

Hope

I have been busy getting ready for my next craft show and tomorrow I am going down to Hackensack to enjoy the chain saw carving show. Oh yeah, I also ordered myself a Vexilar FL18 today. Now I better catch some fish this winter to justify this purchase. shocked

I think it is funny that the guys are talking to themselves on here. Can't stand the silent treatment, huh?

Actually, I have been reading much more than posting. We are starting harvest, which means we are entering our busiest season.

Just today, I made a breakfast of pancakes and bacon for our overnight guests, saw two girls off to school, and sent the youngest one with our guests to head for Kansas City to the Nascar race. Then I did about 6 loads of laundry, helped the guys move to a different field, picked up our middle daughter from school so she could take her driver's test (she passed), picked up hubby from town where he had to drop of the combine for repairs, took middle daughter to urgent care to find out she broke her finger, brought home supper, cleaned up, and then decided to check in on FM. Now, I am off to catch up on sleep. The weekend isn't looking to slow down any, either. crazy

And my hubby asks me what I do all day...

I should have worded that more clearly...

Didn't say I hadn't been checking in on FM, just that I decided to check before hitting the sack. I just didn't take the time to do any posting on this forum.

Today, I am putting off the inevitable. I have to finish the trim in my daughter's bedroom so her carpet can be installed next week. It will involve filling all the nail holes, sanding that smooth, priming and painting. I may have to install the last few pieces myself as well. Depends on the schedule of our carpenter friend. At least it would give me an excuse to use my air nailer. grin

    •     I guess when I made that statement I was wrongly assuming it would be much colder than that. In that case, it should be a nice October game just like a couple years ago at TCF. 
    • I went back the next day hoping the slush froze.  No such luck i guess water wont freeze at 31 below zero.  Sunday i tried moving my fishouse.  I kept breaking threw the slush. We hooked 3 widetracks together to my fishouse and still had to jerk the heck out of it to get it out. I did get a few crappies Saturday afternoon.  We picked up 26 crappies. 
    • Finally made it to morson over the weekend.  Fishing didn't go as planned it was extremely cold on Saturday. Ended up with a epic stuck Saturday morning it was 31 below zero when i found some major water . I was pulling my alumalite fishouse on the way to go crappie fishing  I had to jack fishouse out of the water and set it on blocks. I then packed the slush down with my widetrak  i even used my trail groomer to pack it down. I let it sit tell Sunday afternoon to freeze down.

    •     Ice fishing in Wisconsin can be a challenge at times. Catching walleyes is not always an easy task either. We had some crazy weather leading up to this weekend, it was -20 degrees for a solid week and a half, followed by 2-3 days of mid 30s and pushing 40 plus some rain, then we went right back down to -20 degrees.   This made for a challenge fishing tip ups this morning. I’ve got some new hole covers for my Finicky Foolers, which do work great as I’ve used them before, but unfortunately with no snow cover I made the mistake of not setting them right away and forming slush to the cover. Lesson learned. I did get a bit lucky catching that walleye as I thought it would have dropped the minnow with the line being froze.   The first fish I caught was definitely a surprise, a species I have never caught through the ice before, although I have heard they are fairly common to catch out on this lake. Still was hoping it was a giant walleye, but fun nonetheless!   With the cold we weren’t really planning on moving much. We would mark fish every 10 minutes or so but many of them were tight lipped. We did manage a couple more fish jigging, which were some good sized crappie and perch!   Overall I did end up accomplishing the goal of catching a slot walleye out here, so can’t complain.   I will be out on Petenwell Lake more times this winter!
    • Drilled the holes first then set the sleeves down seemed to work a lot better...just have to make sure you mark your holes lol
    • A nice bite continues with anglers catching all sizes of walleyes and saugers.  Most of the action on the south shore is in 24-30' of water.  Daytime bite continues thanks to stained waters of LOW.  There has been a good morning evening bite in 15-17' as well.  Resorts and outfitters keeping ice roads in good shape. One two punch of jigging line and dead stick (hook/jig with live minnow under bobber) effective as is the use of electronics to mark fish. Jigging spoons in gold, glow, glow red and pink uv.  Small rippin raps also good. If not fishing in a resort fish house, auger extension could be necessary in spots where ice is layered.  Snowmobilers stay on marked trail, big ice chunks off of trail.   Rainy River pushing out some nice walleyes with an occasional sturgeon through the ice.  Fish houses along the snowmobile trail from Wheeler's Point to Baudette Bay.  Morning, evening bite most effective.     The NW Angle also has good ice conditions where resorts have ice roads / trails and fishing has remained great. Ice road goes to Flag and Oak Island from Young's Bay. Good walleyes in 22-28' with saugers and perch in water deeper than 26'. Combo of jigging spoons and dead sticks with a jig and minnow effective.  Resorts are guiding anglers to slab crappies on the Ontario side of lake. Preserve the resource, catch your crappies, move on to walleyes or another species as mortality rate is high for released crappies in 25' or deeper.  Snowmobile trails on and around the lake are marked and groomed.  
    • I believe I picked that one up at Red Rock Wilderness Store.  It’s located east of Ely on the Fernberg.   Good thing is he does have an on line store too.
