      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 .

Lake Gogebic Guides?

Recommended Posts

Greg and Brandon can answer for sure, but I lived in Bessemer for 15 years and do not recall any guiding service. I'm sure some of the local resorts (Fishermans, Gogebic Lodge) have some guys that'll take you out and set you up, but I'm not 100% sure.

Well, I'm not too sure on who calls themselves "guides" for LG... There a few of us out there who can point you in the right direction and save you some cash at the same time. First, what species are you targeting? When are you planning on coming? Etc...? Let me know and I will see if I can help out! How's things goin Nate?

I actually did a search on "LG guides" and within 50 miles of the lake I found 1 person. It says that he guides for walleye and/or perch and that he is liscensed. Email me if you'd like that info. Thanks.

Things are good Brandon, got married in October, moved to the big city and have been enjoying this part of the adventure. How are things going in the UP? I'm hoping to make it up in March to fish, but scheduling is going to be tough since I'm coming up for walleye opener and if I get drawn for a turkey tag I'll be up for that too.

Hey hawk. Gonna be a good time I'd say. The snow situation is pretty bad on the East shore and not too bad on the West. We're supposed to get some warm weather this weekend and its descent today...sunny and windy. Hopefully those variables will knock the snow down some! I've heard people talking about as much as 2 feet on the East.. frown

WE have new tools in the moving around department, thats not a problem. Longer days and sunny make a great perch bite.

Fish On

Jesse, hope to see you out there and will help when I can. I bet TO would ever have something to add.

How are the ice and snow conditions?

I'm going to kill 2 birds with one stone up in the area in the near future. Going to rent a place so I can snowboard one day and ice fish for a day or two.

I'd like to get on some of them big perch, I don't even want to keep any just see them in my own hand lol. If anyone could point me in the right direction or have any pointers that would be awesome.

If your talking to me no I haven't made it up that way yet. I've never fished the lake and don't know much about it. I will definitely be heading there sometime this winter, been kinda waiting to hear some reports but I guess not many of those around lol.

I have heard fishing is actually good this year, but more walleye than perch are being caught. there is a new limit for perch on the lake which will help the fishery

Nice, they should protect those jumbos. Is there any night bite on this lake for the eyes?

I see Indian Head has a deal where if you buy a 3 day lift ticket you get 3 days lodging for free. They close the runs at 4pm so after that would be the best time for me to fish. I'd still skip a morning or afternoon of boarding for some fishing though.

    • I actually enjoyed this. LOL  I used to dive a lot, but not as good as these did.
    • Didn't you smoke one before watching? 
    • Uhhhhh... I for one am at a complete loss for words.
    • Here is a project for you when fishing gets slow.  
    • I've never been to Boone's but I would think that Ahlman's Gun Shop down by Waterville might be similar and another possible resource.
    • Was able to get out these last couple weeks a couple times to enjoy the waterfowl before most of them left for good. Surprisingly was able to find a couple sea ducks on back to back weekends. The harlequin was a first for me in MN and the Long Tail was the second of my life.  Young long tail days before this lake froze over. Hen Harlequin below the St. Cloud darn couple weeks ago. American blackduck - may have some slight mallard mixed in with it as I noticed some green on its head from certain angles. widgeon picture I liked the colors with. This was taken early November.  
    • Hey, I just started mine and did about 5 circles around the yard just to smell some exhaust!
    • Wow. That's like a dictionary.
    • I downloaded and printed the manual. Worth it. It does so many things it would take years to fumble through to find shortcuts and fine tune without it. 
    • Well, the package arrived yesterday and I got it put together last night. Overall impression compared to the lowrance is that this is by far a better unit.   Starting with the bag. The zippers and fabric are more heave duty and look to be able to stand up to much more use without problems.   The plastic holder- probably a wash between the two units but the HB has done some nice things with cord management that give it the nod. Also feels a bit more durable.   Now to the graph- I live the display. It looks more sharp and more professionally designed than lowrance and to be honest I like the look better that the marcum lx units as well. Just personal preference. The adjustments are more intuitive and overall after being a lowrance guy for a long time I can't find a single thing that lowrance did better.
