      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 .

First Week in Feb Trip TO LOW

Recommended Posts

The past 7 years I have brought up a group of guys to Upper Red and now everyone wants a little change. I am going to set up a Trip to LOW but I have no idea where to go. Some things we like are, FISH of course, quality over quantity, Sleepers on the ice, drive our own vehicles on the ice, maybe a tavern or 2 close enough to drive to, and I guess that is about it. I know my criteria is a little specific but I usually bring anywhere from 15-22 guys and everybody likes it a little different. I am just looking for some suggestions.

Thanks,

PERCHKING

OK. Any,and all of the advertisers on this website are all sources for fish houses,and all the information there is needed to get on to fish.Rocky Point,Long point,wheelers point,etc. are also good places to try. choose one and get your gear to have a good time winter fishing the lake.

Any of the fine resorts will be good places to rent out of. If you have that many people looking for something different this is the area to go. You can fish LOW during the day, head to Red for the evening if you want, or you can Run tip-ups in shallow, or fish walleyes on the Rainy River for more fun!

I personally would bring portables and gear to be mobile. that way if the fishing is slow in the houses you can move around and find them. You can also move in shallow for the evening bite as well.

Ask around at the resorts and see what they think! Jump back in here and ask a few questions too. There are lots of knowledgeable people here!

Take Care and Good Luck Fishing!

Depends on what you wan to do - If you want to enjoy the bar scene, any of the resorts on the river will work for you. If you want to be a little more secluded, I would recommend Arnesen's. The guides are second to none, the food is excellent and they always treat you well. I have been going up there for 13 years now and can't complain. If you want more details, drop me a line at robert (Contact Us Please) nathe at target.

haha, I was just looking on the board for that same reason! Been going to Upper Red, but we got hit with a snowstorm last year and couldnt get off the lake to hit the bar for awhile.....we all ended up w/ severe cabin fever so now we're going to LOW, but we're using day houses so we can eat decent food at night.

Arnesen's is the best on the lake in my opinion. I have always had good trips out of there operation. They have some of the best people on the lake. Plus they have a hugh selection of areas to fish right near the resort. Where as other places have maybe just a couple options Arnesen's has a hugh selection to choose from.

If you know the right resorts (Sounds like Portsmans), sometimes they will throw in a free trip for the organizer! It's worth it. They have a few places close enough to walk to if you want to change scenery, food is great, live bands almost every night......what else could a group of guys want on a trip to LOW! Have Fun!

Just be sure to get your reservations done soon. All places on LOW are popular (as they should be) and book up quick.

I had a very bad experience at Arnenson's after several good years there and will not go back. It is also far from any other resort. We have been going to several on the Zippel bay resort which means several bars, bait stores and you can drive out on a very well maintained road to bring your own gear or use rentals. In my opinion the best is Sportsman's, however it is the most expensive. However for my money I really like Cyrus resort. Owned by a nice couple who have gone out of their way on our 3 trips there and I can only say nice things about the resort now that some much needed repairs/updating to the cabins have been completed.

Oakdale, curious what it was that made your experience at Arnesens a poor one? First time poster, so I had to ask you that because 4 of us are looking at Arnesens for sleepers this winter. Thanks in advance.

      Also check for water in the fuel filter. At higher rpms water droplets travel to carbs and causes poor combustion. Happened to me some years ago. Had to drain water out of tank.

      Skunked, It was nice meeting you.  I've seen you,  your wife and little one a few times, but you never waved-thought you might be mad at me after we had a little debate on netting.  Sounds like were good!  Stop by if you see me on the dock.  That was my wife and sister in-law assembling the bench. That pinch area on the river is tight and some folks tend to fly right thru.  Also, people fishing on that dock in the pinch down area in the spring, don't like to reel in their bobber when you try to navigate through the boats in the spring.  I used the fish the St Louis River a lot and fellow fisherman were terrible flying by you.  I too follow the no-wake policy when going through tight areas.

      Yep, done for the year.  Not much for heat or insulation in the cabin.  It's a real, honest to goodness cabin.   So, as of Thursday, adios.  Until next year, etc.
    • CigarGuy
      Del, are you done up here for the year?  Missing the best part of the year!  If you see me on the dock or out on the lake..say hi!  I wouldn't just drop in and introduce myself either-not my style.  Don't have to worry too much about anybody climbing the mountain to do that

      About 69 this morning.... And this concludes my reporting until sometime in 2018, Lord willing. But I will still be watching....
    • delcecchi
      I will add that it is nothing like the old days when throwing a marker was practically life threatening..... But that is west end.   If it wasn't for the musky  guys there would only be like three of us...

      Told my wife I wanted to watch hooker....  she said " you aren't watching any hookers while I'm around"   rim shot.

      The public access on Grand Lake in Stearns County will be temporarily closed Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. for hand removal of starry stonewort. This temporary closure is necessary for the safety of workers and divers.  A relatively light population of the invasive algae was recently confirmed around the Grand Lake public access, following a coordinated starry stonewort search involving 200 trained detectors in 20 counties. DNR invasive species specialists will hand-pull starry stonewort while preserving native aquatic plants. Starry stonewort has never been eradicated from any lake in the United States, but treatment can ease access and recreational use of a lake, while helping to reduce the risk of infestation to other water bodies. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Skunked.  Reruns on late nite so watch Hooker for laughs. Never saw it much in 1983. Shatter is Kirk as Hooker. To fun. He an his three self trained rookies are the answer to everything  the only squad with action an Hooker solves every case by end of show ending with a real dramatic line an stop action shot  acting is really bad but fun. City neeeds Hooker an he an crew kick it into high gear. Real 80's corn. Locklear n James Darren an Adrain Zmed prove trying to act is not hard but acting is. Total fun an totally predictable. Best lure I been use in is a simple black buck tail an a huge ol red n white spoon. Wallys like my raps dragged on a 2oz bottom bouncer an pike for some reason been eating my worms on a floaty. Smaller are a hoot an my Hounds love the action. Speaking of action. I have never seen a show with as much running in it as TJ Hooker. Ol Capt. Kirk is always on the go. "You call it in. I'll get'nm". "I want him bad. Ya hear. BAD".   :  ). I sure miss my pup Moe Rock. Bummer so this is a treat. Keep on rocken!  Fish on. T
