      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 .

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.

        This post is turning into an 80's  TJ HOOKER episode! To fun to turn off an so bad it needs to be made fun of. : )

      This year?   It is new this year.... Apparently a lot of businesses are having trouble hiring seasonal employees.

      I have only been there a few times, but that doesn't make any sense based on my visits.

      I am headed to MN for my annual trip and wanted to target pike on leech. For the past 5-6 years I have been kayaking smaller lakes around the area but now I am back to having a decent boat for bigger waters. Used to fish the east side flats in Headquarters and Boy bay prior to my kayak days. Usual came earlier in the year as well. Bucktails on weedlines still my best bet or do you think crankbaits are the way to go just off weedlines? Better spots than others? Should be there a few days before / after Labor Day.

        I believe the  problem here is a hull with rocker.   At different trim and speed the hull does just that, rocks.   Normally you'd trim in, throttle up and once on plane, throttle back to cruise speed and adjust the trim out.    To be trimmed all in at WOT or even cruising speed would make must hulls plow water at the bow.   In the case with rocker you usually find the porpoise stops when you increase speed.   The fin might be enough to lift the transom up and stabilize it.   Let us know what you do and how it works.

      Went and tried a new spot... 3 snacky cats. One of them took my rod straight into the river and I had to dive in after it. Good times.
    • mrpike1973
      I use the Daiwa ct r also have 2 of them best out there in my opinion.
    • FishinCT
      Pretty good for me from Monday through Wednesday. Found them from 14-24ft depending on the spot but most fish came from under 20ft. Trust the electronics and motor around til you find a good school. They are hitting pretty well when you find them

      Best wishes for a happy retirement Ace.   I could never have done the guide thing even if I were a good enough fisherman.   It takes a special type of person to deal with all the different people... Congratulations on a job well done.
