      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 picked it up at the library...All i gotta say is WOW I defintly recommend it. These guys back in the day (Fellegy,Barnvalde's) were TRUE Mille lacs fisherman and navigators.Know wonder why they slam the likes of Linder & Winkleman in the book..These guys earned there keep.

Also found out he wrote another book. Rare MN Fishing stories. Wen't to library and found they carried it, but recently had to get rid of it due to poor condition. They said that the Rare MN fishing stories book is out of print. The lady wen't ahead and ordered a dozen copies off Amazon.com and said they should be there within 2 wks. I'm pumped! If anyone knows of any other Mille lacs lake books please fill us in.

I also have read Joe's book. I especially liked the part where Ron Shara motored up to his launch and asked Fellegy what he was using for bait. LMAO !! Fellegy should have had the TV show !

"Mille Lacs: Thirty Years on the Big Lake: Memoirs and Secrets of a Walleye Fishing Guide," By- Joe Fellegy- I believe it was published in 1991.

I really enjoyed that book as well. I developed deep, life long impressions of Mille Lacs as I started going to our family cabin there when I was a kid in the 70's. Many of the stories in "30 years on the big lake" take place right through those formative years of my life. So, as he describes bites, places, sites, etc... I can close my eyes and picture them.

There does seem to be a fair amount of venom directed at GPS units, fishing shows, and anyone who has become moderately wealthy through the fishing industry though.

D'oh. Sorry about that Russ, I musta read your post wrong. I thought you were talking about a different book than the others posted. I am in the beginning stages of getting my porch started and want to stock a bookshelf with outdoors books. Got a few already but the ones on the big lakes seem intersting.

No problem. Keep an eye on the internet. You will find the Book(s)at a reasonable price eventually...

I read "Classic Minnesota Fishing Stories: A Rare Collection of First-Hand Accounts, Anecdotes, and Reports" cover to cover probably a dozen times as a kid! This is probably the same book referred to as "Rare MN Fishing Stories" earlier in this thread, as it was written by Joe Fellegy in 1982. I've torn my parent's house apart looking for that book, to no avail. One of the guys in the book was a resident at the nursing home my mom worked at, and she brought the book in and he signed the page that was his story. Pretty cool stuff when you're a 10 year old kid! Thanks a ton for the Amazon idea, for some reason I never would have thought to look there. $1.95 + $4 shipping on Amazon, thanks again!

Are Steve and Joe Fellegy related.

Reason I ask is that I spent some time fishing with Steve in a few tournaments back in the MWC days and the reference made to a few of the opinions referenced from Joe's book in an ealier post were similar to Steve's. I have a tremendous respect for Steve and Joe and what they've done to inspire and promote fishing in there own way. I'm one of those guys that grew up fishing, managed to fish a little competitively and now that I have two kids under 3 I depend heavily on the technology I can buy, posts I can access on sites like this and watch plenty of fishing shows with my daughters on weekend morning. I depend on these people and products to keep the passion alive until I can teach my daughters to say take me fishing dad. New technology and posts shared offer me much better odds of having a great fishing experience the few times I get out and I'm greatful for that. Would like to hear the views of others on fishing shows and how they market today and what you think technolgy does to or for the sport. I don't want to speak for Joe or Steve and would love to hear from them. The conversations I had with Steve have stayed with me and I understand the points he made.

      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 ?
    • Wakemup
      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!
    • monstermoose78
      the rum is back in its banks so bet the fishing is amazing? Anyone out trying? Where are all of you? I know it’s busy time but let us know what you are chasing.
    • monstermoose78
      I need to slow down and focus on shooting 
    • MinnowBuckets
