      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 .

Tully Lake Saturday - Who's in?

Recommended Posts

From the north - Take Tully exit off Rt. 81 rt. 11A South across the street on to Lake Rd. Continue south on Lake Rd as it loops around and take your first left on Wetmore Rd. Follow this south to the end and take a left onto Saulsbury Rd. and take the first right on to Friendly Shores Drive stay straight on this road and at the end of Friendly Shores Drive the parking area for the lake is on the right.

Been a while since we hit this and it should be fun, bluegills, crappies, perch, largemouth, pickerel,white fish and yes walleyes...

Lee - It's the right call with the snow dump were getting up here now and points north are getting blasted.

There is a convenient Burger King Restaurant right across from the off ramp off 81 at Tully for breakfast. I will be there at 6:30 a.m. Hope to see you there...

Thunder the Diner your thinking of is long gone. That place was closed when I moved out of Tully last year, nobody stays in that spot very long.

Weather should be fine....

Jay, I have some jigs that need your attention (paint) if you can? These are some old jigs that you just can't get anymore and think they would be great for perch, Tank might even know what I few of them are and you guys are welcome to some of them if you want.

See everyone in the morning, I might be a little late so don't wait for me if I'm not there by 7am. I'll be dragging my [PoorWordUsage] right behind you. I'm really thinking about hitting the far end of the lake if the snow isn't bad, there is a great flat that should be holding some perch. I've done good down there in the past.

Also i'll be auctioning off a custom one of a kind cedar ice-scoop at noon...

Wish I was with you guys in the worst way!!! Haven't been around since last week. Seems the visits to Tammi's and her being with her Gram at the Hospital was all it took. Guess my reisitance never got up to par after the stomach bug. (let's blame it on the gardening). After cooking a big meal for her Dad's family and cleaning up, I went down hard with the flu Sunday night. Just like a light switch was thrown. Couldn't even get out of bed. Spent 4 days at her house. Still weak and coughing up junk. I'm going fishing Monday no matter what!

Todd, get in touch. I'll meet you for the spikes, most all of mine died. This year has been [PoorWordUsage] on me. Figures, bought new gear. Should hav bought a motorcycle, we'd be ice fishing in June! I miss the whole ugly lot of you! lol

OK, seriously, who's free this week?! Sniper?

Tim, I'm going to try the place we've always talked about in Tully this week or next if the weather permits. Somebody get in touch, I'm actually watching TV!!!!

Ray - Don't worry about it Tully was pretty much dinkville as far as fish caught a few nicer gills when Jay found a nice little area before he left. Had a good time with the gang and really enjoyed my new sonic hole hopper, Thanks John B. I feel like I was sight fishing a bit but I am very pleased with the operation of the hopper, the 6 gallon bucket with a 5 gallon bucket insert was the perfect height.

It was nice fishing with Lee, Dark Cloud, Tank, Tuzzy, Todd and Frank. Here's ome pics of the better fish I caught..

Timmy - I had a feeling that area would pay off. It was a hard choice to leave some fish for hopefully more fish but we are very glad we did!

Tank and I had a ball this afternoon. 3 o"clock hit and the sunfish were on fire, almost non-stop. Every once in a while you had to cut a new hole.

The fish were averaging on the top end of the sunfish scale. I caught this pig while on the phone with Lee...

Quite the maiden voyage with the new traps...

p2212807.jpg

Had to weed through alot of small perch but there were some good ones also...

DC - Thanks for suggestion. Hope to get out tomoorrow since I'm feeling a lot better than I did. Not 100% but... Didn't order any jigs from that guy since I got sick before I had time. YOu got the email list, right? Got to work on the other plan sometime.

Where to go? Think I'll check the forecast and see who may head out tomorrow and/or Tue. Anyone?

Sniper - Never been there. Get in touch, maybe we can take a shot at it or someplace else. Guys have my # or email me [YouNeedAuthorization]@yahoo.com

Sniper and Fullmoon...I am up for some fishing tomorrow. I got a line on the South end of Skaneateles. It is virtually untouched and ready for some fishing. IMy buddy owns a camp on that end of the Lake. He said he was out on the ice walking around and talked to a couple of fisherman that were getting nice fish. I am not going to post what they were catching, but let's just say I was grinning from ear to ear grin

Otisco is pretty much a waste of time. I used to fish it a lot when I lived in Skaneateles. Dink City, but lots of action. The Pigger Lakers are also being had on Owasco in DEEP water!!

Westy, you needs to get out of the kitchen more!! Lee I almost went back to the area I was pulling the nice perch out on the way out. Todd, you must have taken all the fish with you as they stopped biting about 15 minutes after you left. FYI, I have the Navionics Gold and as I went to mark the perch spot that was 7 feet with 13-14 ft all around, I discovered that the lake map was as detailed as one could wish for. Unbelieveable the amount of detail. I guess I should look before we go on some of the other lakes as well.

    • What the heck is everyone up to? I haven't checked in, in a while, figured I better throw leech a few pictures of some snowmobiling...... hasn't been much going on in our neck of the woods with the wind blowing everything into the grass or woods.   Anyone else been out west yet?   7 of us shot out to Cooke City a week ago ( Jan 10 ) and rode the BearTooth Pass / Top of the World Wyoming on Thrus, then headed for Cooke City Montana to ride Friday and Saturday. Met up with 3 more and we had one of the best deep powder rides ever!   Always a lot of work when you ride in the deep stuff but it's something you always wait for, got a good work out from getting stuck ALOT and helping out the others too. I believe the snotel site topped 102" of snow ( they actually topped 100" around new years too ) which is early for them to get that much snow but not all places out west are getting snow, our friend from Colorado said one of the ski resorts out there was only 25% open ...... good thing we didn't plan on going to Colorado riding this year!   I didn't bring a camera with so I had to rely on my buddies to supply a few pictures.   There were some meadows and bowls that were STUPID Deep with powder, dang near didn't make it out, had to be an easy 3 to 4 feet of powder back in them areas...... it was AWESOME!!!!   When you see this much snow in town, it's going to be GREAT up top!                        
    • Some of my cam pics this year. Still showing bucks with antlers in the last week or so. 
    • you would swear it was homecoming week in all of our local schools here in rural central mn!  Most schools (businesses alike)here had Vikings day today.  I like everyone older than 30 has dementia and everyone younger doesn't understand our (vikes)history!   I will just sit and live on hope.
    • A season has always been a slam dunk for me.  Season B I am 2 for 3.  Seasons c-the end I am 2 for 2, young birds however. Weather is variable throughout, but i have killed birds in a heavy snow storm, rain and wind throughout the years.  Just scout and hunt, birds will tell you what to do if you listen.   Sometimes they lie though!   Pick the season that best allows you the time to be out the most.  Time in the woods and fields will equal the most success, this year and years going forward.
    •   Ok, well without the casualties then!
    • Leech just remember that Trainwreck feels like a bowling ball in your stomach when you head back out on the trail ,,, Thats fine if the trail is smooth ,,, a real B@tch if its kinda bumpy     I may head to Wisc if the snow heads east during this next snowfall 
    • I'm headed up next week for 2-3 days and will be back on the weekend if the trails are in decent shape. I snoozed last year and missed what little snow we had but not this year.Maybe ill get the sled broke in this year.
    •   Dang it, it will snow more and I will have one Train wreck this year!!!    If I have to drive up there!  Have fun and watch those trees on the Brisk Pace ride!
