      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 .

Fire season is upon us again. Currently, campfires are still allowed as long as they are in conjunction with a resort, campground or residence or in an approved fire ring at an authorized campsite. These will be changing before too long as things are drying down quickly. Many small fires resulting from the lightning strikes of the last couple of thunderstorms that went thru.

If you see any smoke during the day, call 911. If you see any smoke, even if you think it may be your neighbor burning his garbage, call it in. If you are one of those burning, watch the sky. Notice that airplane that flies over the same route all afternoon? Guess what they are doing? This is serious stuff. There are some out there that would like to trivialize this. Thats fine. I just hope to be able to save someone from having to tell authorities that "they didn't realize it was so dry in the woods" just as they are being ticketed for starting a fire that could cost them thousands of $$$$ and possibly a life.

Lake levels are approaching the low levels that we saw last fall.

I see camp fires are banned except at resorts with a proper fire pit, Is it OK to have one at a private cabin that we rent? Same thing right.

After 8AM friday, there will be no campfires allowed. Here is the link. We have the potential for any fires that start tomorrow to become large fires in a very short time. The winds will be high and the relative humidities will be low. So starting on Friday, if you see smoke at any time of the day call 911!!! Here is the link to the current news release...

Are wood burning stoves inside a cabin not allowed?

For those out on the lake today, if you looked south, you saw a huge smoke plume. That was a fire that was about 4 miles east of the Silverado.(junction of 169 and 21) there were actually 2 fires in the same general area. Luckily, the local CO spotted the fire from Vermilion and notified the DNR Forestry guys. Spotter plane was not in the area at the time. They called in lots of local departments and hit it hard with 3 of the CL-215 water bombers and helicopters. As of this time, the fire is under control but they will be working this thing for many days. Things are so dry that it will require many days of mop-up to get it completely out. Be careful out there. It is really dry out there. If you see anyone with any type of fire, call 911. It only took this fire 15 minutes to get to the point where ground crews would have had a tough time controlling it. Thankfully, there wasn't a second fire anywhere that would have required additional personel or equipment.

Great job and a big thank you to the fire fighters and all others involved. It rained in Duluth this morning, anything up in the Vermillion area? These dry conditions worry me.

The radar looked like we were going to get some precip but it dissapeared before it got here. So nothing yet...

How far is the lake down from early this season? I am coming up for the weekend.

It is within about 3-4 inches of being as low as it was last fall. Which is really low. Not much water coming in at the Pike River. Not much rain coming from the sky. As far as how much lower from this spring..... Quite a bit... about a foot, I would guess. With a little care and caution, you will be fine.

      Lauren (Bubba) Sawatsky has a storage facility just north of Cook on 24.  Might give him a call. http://www.vermilionbarginginc.com/htmls/storage.html 218 666 5512

      There is a problem with the latency of satellite.  Makes loading pages slow.    I agree that a cell phone data plan/hotspot is your best bet.  I think Verizon on East end, and ATT on West end are the choices.   ATT has a tower near Cook, and on south shore of Frazier as mentioned.

      The crappie bite here has been very fussy, almost like ice fishing. So windy it's been tough to fish the way they seem to want it, most of the time.

      4 outfits out here right now.

      Fall fishing is so solid on Lake of the Woods right now. The fish may bite a different times everyday but they bite, and bite good, everyday. Had Pete Smith in the boat Thursday and it really couldn't have gone any better. Check it out, this weeks NCOR LOTW Fishing Report from Curt's NCOR Guide Service

      5.7% success in warm, breezy weather.  Hopefully that doubles for next weekend.  I think the weather will be a little cooler at least. I only heard 1 field report.  2 does and 2 fawns sighted. 1 in the morning and 3 in the evening.   I've heard area reports the deer are starting to move but not much for scrapes and such.  The leaves have been coming down and the woods opening up.  I've personally seen the deer start and stop using some areas as fall has set in.

      Hello, I'm from Chicago but I have a lot of family in Rochester. I come up for a week every few months and always do great fishing for Large mouth. I was hoping to find some spots to specifically target Pike that are within 30 mins of Rochester. I will be mainly shore fishing.  Thank you

      Got up to Bowstring again at Geigers Trails End Resort. Went up to get some crappies nd found them but again could not get one to bite out deep.  One spot they were 7 feet thick ! LOL   So we chased perch and did great. No 12 inchers but a lot of dandies. Not sure if I will get back up before ice.  Crappies should be great this winter.

      Where's the best place to get bait at Vermillion?? Is Hoodoo the best access to fish big bay? The girlfriend and I are going to come up for a day trip tomorrow...Thanks for any help.
