      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 .

Best Broasted Chicken around Alexandria.

Recommended Posts

berdman

Kind of an off the wall question, but where would you recommend to go for Broasted chicken. We are going to be up on Lake Ida in late September and want to have one night to eat out. We decided Broasted Chicken since we can't get that here. Any suggestions. tongue.gif

Chet's on Lake Irene by Miltona. I don't know if it's broasted but it's good but greasy. Good salad bar and drinks too. Place has been going like 50 years.

Chet's has been known for its chicken for many, many years. There is no other.

Kobear is right, good but greasy. They would also be the closest unless Miltona supper club has it. If you decide to go to Chets, and it's the weekend I would recommend reservations. I know the Miltona supper club is under new ownership, does anyone know if they have broasted chicken?

I just found out the Miltona supper club does have broasted chicken, sorry I can't give the phone number got a message it's not allowed. Chet's chicken is not broasted, it's deep fried. Miltona is jsut off of highway 29.

I would also say Chets! Everytime somebody mentions chicken, I think of Chets.

I can't say for sure but if I recall correctly Miltona Supper Club has changed management in recent years but when I lived in that area about 15 years ago, they served by far the best broasted chicken around. I haven't visited that place in quite a number of years so I can't say how it is today.

I believe the Miltona Supper club off Hwy 29 is now called "Anderson's Outpost"

Chet's chicken has been famous in the area for a long long time. worth a try.

You could also venture west and try the Melby Outpost. Has been known to be good as well.

The Leaf Valley Mercantile on Cnty Rd 6 just west of the Lake is good food and great atmosphere too.

Miltona is now Club Miltona in "downtown" Miltona correct? Save Melby for the day before duck season and the first day of deer season. I used to live over there quite the ruckus on those days.

Thanks for all the suggestions. Looks like we may have to do a Broasted and a Fried chicken night now. Only 6 weeks to go for our trip to Ida. We are excited and now hungry. I will be sure to give you all a report on the fishing. Thanks again, Berdman.

I have had family in that area for over 100 years.

No one...and I mean no one...beats Chet's Lakeside Inn chicken near Lake Irene.

Call ahead, the place is packed on some weekends because they are so good!

If your on Ida (especially the West side) you can't beat the short run up to the Leaf Valley Merchantile for grub and a beer.

      Headed up this weekend for the first trip of the fall.  Thinking about fishing the lake with all the good reports from there, but has anybody been up to Clementson, Frontier or Birchdale  areas recently that could give a report?  Thanks.

      VG, Good bite most days now! All minnows for me. jigs or lindys. Chubs, shiners, and pike suckers. Found walleyes from 8' to 40' yesterday. Cliff

      Thanks for chiming in and sharing how the river has been treating you lately. They sure are fun to catch. I am hoping to get out again this weekend for some more smallie action. Hopefully they are still near where I was able to find them last weekend....

      I fish pretty much exclusively above the Sartell dam.  I normally try to hit it 2-3 times per week.  Over the last 3 weeks, I thought the fishing was down right ridiculous(even with the crazy high water) at times, 12-20 fish in a hour or two before sunset.  I found them right up on the bank, and of course in slower moving water.  There are a few spots north of the dam that are great places for high water.  Some larger areas where the water can swirl around and create backwash.  In fact, I'll point my boat down right and put spot lock on, because the water is flowing back up river, and just cast parallel with the bank.  Most of the time I'll throw a Scatter rap, then when I see a fish chasing bait, I'll throw out a wacky rig.   I went out last weekend to a spot I've been hitting, and the fish have diminished big time.  Caught 6 in a couple hours.  Then I went out last night, and caught one walleye.   So, with that in mind I figured they had to of gone to the deeper rock piles.  And, sure enough, I caught 2 just before sunset, then I headed in.   If you have SI, just drive down or up river and look for large groups of rock piles.  Go up river from them, and try and do a controlled drift over the rocks.  I normally use a jig and a tube.  And there's no mistaken them when they hit.   Even a few eyes mixed in every once in a while.

      Headed up for one last weekend of open water fishing.  Anyone been out this week, how’s the bite?

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