      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 .

It has been two or three days since the meeting. Please let us know the outcome. As I recall your post: you were going over the next morning to meet with Terry and then report back.

Thanks,

tweed

I have not been able to make it over there. Duties at the resort haven't allowed me the time to get over there. I'm hoping that I can get over there early next week, as we are all booked full this weekend.

Glad to hear Business is good. Didn't mean to put you on the spot. If you meet , and don't feel like it would be wise to post, I think we at FM would understand.

Take care

Terry needs to think before he speaks in a public forum. That comment did not help the Mille Lacs Business community. He can try to kiss up for that comment all he wants but people will remember that for quite a while.

I wish the DNR would improve the conditions of the current ramps rather than opening new ramps around the lake. They need to dredge almost all of their current ramps.

I agree that it should not have been said. Seems though, many times people in time will forget. Doesnt really bother me as there are plenty of great resorts on Mille lacs that give wonderfull service and would never state that. I personally will continue to frequent the resorts and bait shops there just like always.

I know in the past that Terry often speaks "with his foot in you know where".

If we could, let's not post negative things until Paul posts .We owe that to Paul. He has done many awesome things for us all at FM!!!!! grin.gifcool.gif

Thanks

Thanks rodmaker for the kudos,

It is not that easy to get away as something always seems to need immediate attention and our on premise guests will always come before all others.

On the other hand, I feel that this is important enough to push it to the top of the plate and get down to the truth of the matter. As I mentioned before, as soon as we get thru the weekend I will be headed over there.

Sorry to all that this hasn't happened sooner, but it just hasn't been possible.

If you don't agree with what he said just don't spend your money there. I won't and haven't for many years now, as I can get better service at different places around the lake.

This weeks edition of Outdoors Weekly has a big article and an explanation from Terry on what was said and not said. I read it with an open mind. I'm sure this article may have also been reprinted in other venues as well. Bill

Terry has followed up his comments with several other statements. There is no longer any point to beat this dead horse.

For the majority of us up here this issue has been laid to rest and we have moved on.

Amen to that.

Paul, I don't want to call you on a Saturday Morning, I know It's your crazy busy time.

Was wondering If you want to make some fishing time on Monday-Tuesday, I'm thinking I could use a 4 day weekend.

Give me a shout when you got time.

Kevin

Unfortunately Terry's article in the outdoors weekly just made me a little more upset. Does he really think that the prostitutes here in the cities can drive up there for days on end ($100 a day for gas) because of a hot bite. Sounds to me like all those same vehicles he sees are locals.

His remarks dont really bother me at all. One needs to just forget what he stated and go fishing. The majority of the business people on the lake are great and really welcome you there. One does have a choice.

The press seems to really want to dwell on his remarks and its old news.

I hate to feed this anymore but I think you are missing the point of what he is saying. He may not of used the best words or it may not of came out the right way but most of us really do agree with what he is griping about. I'mnot going to speak for anyone or put any words into anyones mouth but this has to do with people that exploit a lake and a bite.

If you were to find a walleye hole in your area that was producing 22 inch walleyes consistently what would you do with this information and why??

Luciaandtim,

I guess you're right by saying

"The only access to any lake in the state where you might catch a walleye, northern, crappie, sunfish, bass, etc.. should be through a resort and it should only be available to locals, unless you spend $xxxx amount of cash here. Who's needs tourism dollars anyway..

If you live in the city, stay in the city.

If you live in the country, stay in the country.

If you live on the lake, have fun fishing." ... ?...

You know, I'm still going to come to the lakes, parks, rivers, etc through the resorts and yes, also through the public accesses to have fun, spend money, and visit or "exploit" (as you call it) the natural resources of Minnesota, South Dakota, Wisconsin or where ever I might go.

I guess that's why the USA is the way it is and you shouldn't have to expect to pay a fee or be called names by a local resident just because the state wants to give access to it.

Believe me, I'm totally up for spending money at the resort and the resorts need to make money to keep giving everyone the awesome experiences to these natural resources. As a matter of fact almost every trip I go on we always buy almost everything from the area we are going to.

If Mille Lacs, or any lake for that matter was always dead, 100% of the time, Terry or any other resort in any area wouldn't have anything to complain about, because nobody would be coming there, spending money "there" to keep the resorts open.

We all just have to appreciate, and support the people that want you there. There are numerous resorts on Mille Lacs and 99.9% of them want you to come. smile.gif Support them...

      Sorry to hear. Being the guide-dad you want everyone to have fun. No fish on worms? Had to be the Eclipse!
    • JBMasterAngler
      Trip didn't go as planned. I had been asking some questions on here to get some info/ideas for the trip. Greatly appreciated all the stuff you guys shared with me. Unfortunately most of it wasn't in the plans  Camped at fall lake, as this was the first time my wife tagged along in a few years, and I thought his would be the most family friendly. After getting setup on Sunday, I launched the boat and goofed around for a bit, but didn't catch anything. My daughter was using worms, and she didn't even get a nibble. Is there not much for bass in fall?   Monday we had to spend some unexpected time in town, making certain purchases. Made it to snowbank late. Trolled for lakers, but only marked ciscoes. Once we started fishing for bass, we caught a few, but then the rain fell. Had it just been me and the 2 older kids, we could have fished through it. But with my wife and the youngest, it wasn't going to happen!   Pretty much the same thing happened on Tuesday. Went to burntside, but the lake was too windy. Went back to town, let the kids play at the park, then had lunch at the boathouse (I highly recommend the motorboat burger). Then we decided to keep it close and simple, and went to miner's pit. Weather got the best of us again. At least this time, my wife caught a few fish. No trout though.   Sometimes there's more to camping trips than good fishing though. We still had lots of fun, and I'm already making some notes for my next Ely trip, which I don't even know when will happen.

      Tommy, can tell by your posts and photos that your dogs are very special to you and Bonnie.  I shed a tear or two while reading this.  I got a kick out of you telling me here after I saw you driving through Cloquet a couple years ago.  You saw my dog riding co-pilot and you mentioned that you also had a dog in the passenger seat (can't remember which one) and Bonnie in the back seat riding with the other dogs.  Good Stuff! Take care, Bill

      I pop in here a few times lately for some humor for myself, it is hard to do. No, very hard to do...but this sight makes me smile sometimes so here ya go...FYI.   Moe Rock passed August 14th  ~  4 days before what would have been his 11th birthday.
      He was our rock in many ways and was one of the smartest retrievers we have ever had in our family in 30 some years.
      If you knew Moe Rock you can understand, remember. He was so strong an fought the cancer just over FOUR MONTHS....
      Pills n tests an more pills an more tests...until well CANCER SUCKS.
      In the end the cancer wins no matter how hard he fought or how hard his TEAM fought with him and for him. Bonnie an I, the special vets an techs at Osceola Animal hospital and the top doc's, students and assistants and at the U of M vet center tried very hard and long to help him in his battle. He never changed, stood tall an strong, bright eyes an devilish smile.
      Truth is we only stayed a couple steps ahead of the cancer that took him that day at 5 PM.
      He was strong right up until he passed with Bonnie an myself holding his paws an making his passing go easy. Bother Polar Bear Boy looking on also.
      Don't make any of this easy saying this, but he was not doing good at 5 am Sunday morning as that cancer stuff just jumped him good this weekend an well,  he lost.
      We never gave in, nor did he. This weekend at the cabin he tried to enjoy himself, DID enjoy it all.  He swam, couple dock jumps, we fished morning runs an sunset, did boat rides, worked on some shore n boat small projects an ate pretty dang well. He was fine until bedtime when we knew an HE knew something was happening.
      Not good. CANCER SUCKS!
      We had a great time, Moe only showing to Bonnie an myself an his Brother Polar Bear Boy he was not feeling to good in the evenings the last week. Very sad. Never forget Moe Rock or his up north name of NoMoeToe given to him by long time guest in my boat from Capser Wyoming the late Mary Cob and his Chisago City area name the Fire Chief gave him of ThreeToeMoe. He was not only special to me but to a host of people in this area an on or around Lake Vermilion for his whole life.
      Good boy, darn good boy. One regret is not everyone that knows of Moe or knows him only online did not get to meet him in person.
      You would have enjoyed him in many ways as we all did.
      Loveable, big nut, sweet, smart, goofy, odd and a total tick that like to start fights with this brothers an then leave them to settle it while he went an ate their food or got best seat on casting deck my big black boat.
      Yup, Moe Rock was a Tick.   Any way....very sad are we, but he fought like tuff darts, a good long fight.
      Never whined a bit, did as was asked an stayed pretty much himself the whole time until that Sunday morning really.
      Not once showing anyone not in family he was sick, real sick. Still loved his truck rides, belly rubs, swimming his pool, wratling with me n Bear, watching TV, Playing on Kendel or computer with Bonnie an just plain being Moe to his brother Bear Boy...big smiles. Fishing, how he love3d fishen...mostly topwater of any kind, but he would go with me anytime, anytime....true fish hound was he, our sweet Moezy.
      I did not tell anyone about Moe rock but Mom Joanne as figured he might kick cancer to the curb an well..........
      Never gave up hope but most times cancer wins in retriever hounds, even our sweet Moe Rock.
      PEACE!
      Very Sad. Now running with his fellow Mallard Island Marauders that crossed over before him, Barney Toonder, Homer J., Bailey, Beckey, Buddy.....plus Jack n Ev the Kats.
      Some good party.....good food, big smiles and all that go with them....all very special. Lov ya Moe......I miss you my boy....rest easy until we meet again.   Keep on rocken!   Tommy
