      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 .

Has anyone eaten at The Boulders north of Walker?

Recommended Posts

Commanche Jim

We'll be heading up to Cass in August and I was wondering if it was worth the trip to the Boulders.....

Also, any other recommendations for dinner in the Walker area?

Been to the mexican place and the pizza place down from Reeds.....How's the steakhouse across from Northern Lights or the Ranch House or The Wharf? It's been 20 years since I've been to the Ranch House.

Any help would be appreciated.

Tried it last year and it was very good. A little upscale and somewhat pricey but worth it. Ranch house still good as well as Benson's and Zona Rosa's. Charley's is good also. The Wharf is gone. Enjoy your meal and good luck fishing.

Charlies Boat House along side his normal restaurant is great outdoor dining. Saturday night crab leg feeds, great ribs, lobster and artichoke dip, etc.

Great food in a great setting!

If you make it to Longville, the wife and I really enjoy visiting Patrick's each year. Real nice dinner and/or lunch. The salad bar is always great along with the main course. We especially like the Walleye dinner.

We try to save room for ice cream at Frosty's, also in Longville.

Enjoy

I've been told by a few people that the buffet, Dancing Fire(?), at Northern Lights is very good. Boulders is "northern MN upscale", a little pricey, but good and the Smiling Moose, the new place south of town is good too. The Ranch House is a typical, good steakhouse.

In Bemidji, CatTails by the NW landing is good, along with burgers at Slims or Corner. Of course, there's the normal chains (AppleBees, Green Mill, Ground Round). Brigids Crossing is a neat little bar.

I have been to the Northern Lights Friday night buffet as recently as 3 weeks ago, Friday night is steak night, and well worth the price of admission, couple that with the jumbo shrimp and we have ourselves a WINNER!!!!!!!!

I haven't tried it yet, but I have heard that Boulders is very tasty as well, hard to drive past the casino and go on into Walker when I don't have too though.

Peppers is gone. The Wharf is still there. Lucky Moose is good. But do not overlook the Fireside Supper Club east of the casino about 4 miles on the south side of the road. Zona's, Bensons and Village Square are all still good. A very good sandwich can be had at the Walker Bay Coffee Co. which is located a couple of doors away from Lundrigans.

Wonder if they have changed cooks at the casino buffet or if it is only certain nights that are good because I have been very disappointed the two times I ate there...

There is a nice German restaurant a little outside of Walker on the road toward Park Rapids - can't think of the name of it off-hand but you can't miss it on the right hand side of the road.

Liked Arthur Bryants but heard that it got torn down - is that true?

Arthers was torn down, much to my disappointment. I looked forward to a cold one on their deck after the long drive up.

Have heard good reports on the german place too.

      Someone let the cat out of the bag on my favorite reels. I love just how light they are but I only go down to two pound test. I thumb the reel to act as my drag. Only use when it is shallow enough to hand over hand.

      What got me hooked on musky fishing when I was a kid was topwater. Nothing more exciting than watching the water explode. My first musky came on a rubber frog while bass fishing, my little brother casted over my line and as I lectured him and reeled my line up as quick as I could, WHAM. Since then I have had some of my best memories from topwater. Poe's giant jackpot, prop baits, creepers, klack/buzz bait. He's going to spend a lot of time casting, giving him something to watch helps pass the time and when he gets follows they will normally be shallow so he will be able to see them.

      Thanks for the reports guys. It will be after New years before I get up in the area to try some fishing. I made a deal with my wife that I can't die ice fishing, before Christmas!

      I have $50 to spend on Musky lures for a 14 year old boy.  Last fall he caught a nice musky, from my kayak, and was unable to land it to get a picture.  He did get it up to the kayak several times so he got a good look at it and has been bit by the Musky Fishing Bug.  I am looking for suggestions for the young man and was hoping to get some help here.

      Last year I rented a house through Hunter Winfield's Resort in Isle.  I looked around at many options and they seemed to have what I was looking for.  Their wheel-houses are very nice and have everything you list above.  Bathroom, TV/DVD, electricity (didn't have to fill the generator once), stove/oven.  I reserved an 8' x 16', but they upgraded me to an 8x20' - nice surprise.  Real nice, and plenty of room for two adults and 2 kids.   I had so much fun I'm going back in January.

      Buddy had a camera down on Saturday and he said he'd get a mixture of panfish to come in then they'd fly out of the hole and in comes a pike or two.  He said that when the gills would leave it was because a pike would be around the hole and he knew it was safe again when he'd see his first panfish.  That was in 18-22 fow.
