      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 .

Lewiston Sportsman Club

Recommended Posts

96trigger

The Lewiston Sportsmans club hosts sporting clay shoots 4 times a year. The 3rd shoot was supposed to be last Sunday morning, the morning of the floods. The club is at the bottom of the hill just outside of Stockton. You have to cross a little creek to get to the club. I'm just wondering how it faired during the flood. I hope it wasn't washed away, its a nice club and range. Anybody have any info?

After seeing what I saw today, I would venture to guess that the little bridge that you cross is gone. Just my guess, I have not been there to check it out. I don't think that the bridge could have taken the divulge of water that was thrown at it. I saw some larger bridges and some major roadways totally gone.

One of the flood victims, John Micheel from Lewiston, was very involved in the Lewiston Sportsman Club.

The Mcheels were good family friends of my in-laws. Mr. Lorenz was also getting pretty darn good with the taxidermy work.

Dumfries Sportsmans club is located on highway 60 about 5 miles west of Wabasha. Its approximately 45 min from Rochester. It gets most of its shooters from Wabasha and Lake City. We shoot anywhere from 7-14 rounds a night. This year has been light averaging about 7 rounds a night. We have a five post set up and there usually isn't a long wait. We will do special round upon request, (flushing 5, wobble, doubles) as long as we have enough to fill a sheet. The special rounds are usually shot last. I can post directions if anybody wants them. However, the trap season is winding down. We shoot into September until the numbers get too low to open.

There is a special Duck tower shoot on Labor Day starting at I believe 1:00 p.m. The birds are launched from a rear tower about 35 feet in the air. You shoot with a partner under some Burlapped PVC pipe blinds, a true pair is sent out and you have as many shells as the two of you can fire to get the bird. Its a blast, you can easily shoot 75-100 rounds per round.

FYI i was down there last week (lewiston sportsman club) and was unable to get through because of a large tree that had fallen across the road. I went down there again today and the archery range is totally wiped out, and i was unable to get to the rifle range, or the trapshoot area because part of the road had collapsed. However the buildings are still standing.

Update for Byron Sportsman Clup there are 4 shoots left this year & will be starting at 5:30 tonight and the next 3 thursdays thereafter. Due to the sun going down sooner we we are starting earlier.Rumor has it there will be free brats afterward for shooters who attend,byobeverage for after the guns are put away.

      Ice out as far as I could see today, little wind and a cool night tonight. Some wind forecast tomorrow night. It should be fine though. Here is the report   20171119_153600.mp4

      Any ice starting to form again?
    • Dirtyfisheyes
      By the look of the forecast, single digit lows at night and no snow. Should it be safe to say that the first of December would be safe for snow machines? Itching to make the trip. Also any recommendations for lodging would be helpful

      Yesterday Finn and I went hunting for ducks and I should have had 4 mallards and pair of woodies.i hit one woodie and it hit the water as Finn went to get it jumped up and flew away. Next weekend I will try again.

      Second week of December is looking good for southern Minnesota, if the current long range forecasts are close to accurate. Maybe even the first week of the month with a little luck.

      I figured I would start up a new thread for us to use for the winter now that things are starting to set up and guys may be starting to creep out on the bays and smaller water.   I did some more poking around on Pike Bay this morning and I don't have anything much new to report. We've got less than an inch of fluffy snow on the ice and things healed up after the warm front this week. I worked my way from shore out into the middle of the bay and ice was relatively uniform between 5.25 and 5.5 inches of nice clear ice. Earlier this week I checked all landings on the Tower end and everything was iced up except for open water way out in Big Bay appearing to mostly be all West of Birch/Ely islands. Not sure if all the recent strong winds from North and South have changed that status though. I'm still sticking with my original guess of December 2 for my first trip off McKinley on 5 inches.   Good luck this winter to all and Be Safe!

      extended forecasts look good up north. We won't have fish-able ice in the metro until at least the 2nd weed in December assuming no dramatic temp changes. The big Expo is Dec1-3 but temps look promising ~1.5hrs north. I wonder if the ability to go fishing might impact the amount of traffic at the show!
