      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 .

I will be up on Winnie in a few weeks with the family. How are the flies and nats compared to previous years?

Two years ago they were so bad we couldn't even cook at our camp site.

Thanks!

The flys were out in full force today. We had temps in the mid 90's and relatively high humidity. The black flys and high humidity go together like peanut butter and jelly. We are suppose to get a relief in the weather this week on Wednesday which will also send the flys away. High temps are expected to be in the mid 60's. The best repellant is called "Natrapel" contains zero deet and is good for small children also. Available at Target. You'll have to stop by the lodge and say hi - if you're in area!! Good luck fishing!!

hi all, the ticks were very bad, i picked up only one but my fishing buddy taken off about 30 of them in 7 days, he couldn't figure out why i hardly had any on me. i tried some other stuff i found that if you eat garlic for 2 weeks stright it repeals everything, thats why bow hunters say dont eat onions or garlic during that time of the yr. deer pick it up quickly, by the way is the bug spray also anti skin sentative to, no mater what i used i tend to brake out in bad rash every time. i am from albert lea, i like lake winnie alot, i do remember in july of 2004 some poor guy forgot to roll up his windows on his famliy suv and the next morning it was covered in mayflies 10" deep inside.

u can reach me at flamefox2010@yahoo.com

Their website is www.natrapel.com. Seems like it would be for sensitve skin if it is gentle enough for small children. I am not sure though if it helps with ticks or not. You may want to check out the website for further details.

      Ditto. I switched to a 3 inch shell in #2 shot. I missed a few wood ducks this morning but got one teal. Not bad for the WMA I was hunting. 2 ducks would be great. 3-4 like you won the lottery. Saw plenty of action but it was fast moving wood ducks out of range. Geese never showed. And you can't shoot trumpeter swans! There were plenty of those. Let my boy sleep in this morning. Tomorrow we'll hit the more pressured lake. I saw at least one person setting up on it this morning on my drive to the WMA. The nice thing about that - when you're almost certain you'll be the only one there - is that you can roll in not long before shooting time if it doesn't take you long to set up.

      Hey Moose , sounds like some tough shooting as of late for you at those duckies . Just curious as to what choke you are using ?

      Has anyone ever stored with Oak Narrows Storage before? Need a spot to put a Polaris Ranger for the winter and thinking of calling them for a space, does anyone have any experience or feedback? Any other recommendations would be welcome. Need a 10x10 or 10x12 space likely.
      Thanks!
