      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 .

HELLO,

MY WIFE AND I ARE DRIVING UP THIS WEEKEND TO STAY AT STONY POINT FOR TWO WEEKS SO SHE CAN OUTFISH ME AGAIN. I AM THE MUSKY HUNTER AND UNFORTUNATELY FOR ME, SHE IS THE MUSKY CATCHER.

DOES ANYONE KNOW OF ANY RIDING STABLES IN THE AREA THAT WOULD STILL BE OPEN THIS LATE IN THE SEASON? THANKS.

Lund Rider,

You may want to check with Brian Jones of First Choice Guide Service. Him and the Mrs. are in the know when it comes to the equestrian sports. I am also a Lund Rider (Alaskan) which helps me earn my name here! Good luck and happy riding.

PS You may want to look Brian up for some Top Quality Muskie Hunting, he is one of the best. Ask him about the Windy special and he will cut you a deal from his already low prices.

Hey Lund Rider,

Check out the pics that Brian just posted on this thread, then give him a call to set up a day for you and the Mrs. Tell him to be sure you get first crack at all the muskies and maybe you will beat her this trip, LOL !

Good Luck

Windy

THANKS FOR THE ADVICE, WINDY. I'D HATE TO SEE HOW MUCH WORSE THE WIFE WOULD OUTFISH ME IF SHE GOT SOME POINTERS FROM BRIAN. I SEE YOU ARE FROM ILLINOIS, TOO. WE LIVE IN PEORIA.

Lund Rider,

Imagine that, another "flat lander" who goes to Cass Lake!

LOL

The guys who cruise this site will get a chuckle out of that. It seems that Illinois has made Cass Lake it's official vacation destination.

Anywho, talk to Brian about the horse situation. Brian and his wife are in the process of starting up a horse boarding business and I know she is "in the know" about horses so she might know of a place still open to ride. If you can get out for a day or even a half day with Brian I am sure he would put you on some good muskie spots that you could use for the rest of your trip. I use him strictly for walleye and some perch but his first love is the big girls. He really knows his stuff when it comes to the muskie on Cass. Have a great trip!

THANKS, CHRIS, FOR THE INFO ON PINE RIVER. I'LL PASS ALONG THE PHONE NUMBER TO MY WIFE. SHE REALLY WANTS TO GO RIDING UP THERE.

HEY, WINDY. I HAVE BEEN CHECKING OUT THE CHAT ROOM HERE FOR A COUPLE OF YEARS, BUT DON'T POST VERY OFTEN. HEARD A LOT ABOUT BRIAN ON HERE. WE HAVE BEEN GOING TO CASS LAKE FOR ABOUT TWENTY YEARS NOW. MISSED LAST YEAR'S TRIP TO CASS LAKE. LAST YEAR'S MINNESOTA TRIP WAS TO MAYOS, THANKS TO MY CRUMMY HEALTH THE LAST COUPLE YEARS. I IMAGINE BRIAN WOULD BE BOOKED UP WITH THIS SHORT OF NOTICE THOUGH. WE HIRED A GUIDE A FEW YEARS AGO, PAUL NELSON, AND HE TOOK US TO LAKE PLANTANGANET. SAID THE MUSKIES WEREN'T AS BIG AS CASS LAKE'S BUT IT HAD MORE NUMBERS. I STILL STRUCK OUT. BUT PAUL DIDN'T CATCH ANY EITHER. I SHOULD ENTER MY WIFE IN THE MUSKY TOURNAMENT THAT IS GOING ON WHILE WE ARE UP THERE. MIGHT PAY FOR OUR TRIP. HAVE YOU READ MERV HEITSCHMIDT'S BOOK `NETTING REEL MEMORIES'? HIS FOLKS BOUGHT BIRCH VILLA.

Rider,

Sounds familiar, our family just celebrated our 20th Anniversary of going up to Cass. We stay at Wishbone Resort. I thought you were a newbie to Cass since I have not seen many of your posts. I am a big mouth when it comes to this site so you probably have seen my junk non stop. If you have been coming up for 20 years you know where the muskies lurk but if you have had a bad stretch give Brian a call and let him check his book. I am sure he would have at least a half day open in the 2 week stretch, if not, have fun anyway. My wife and I go up for two weeks, by ourselves the first week and then 20+ family members the 2nd week, four generations of family. Good times!

Windy

Bigmouth on this site? Check out Windy on the Baseball forum although being a SSide PaleHose fan, he ain't breathing too heavily anymore...nyuk,nyuk.

Any of youze guyz like to adventure on Star Island, there is a great book of interviews of the old-time residents who recant stories of living primitively and then the push toward modernization on the island. I think the title is "Star Island: A Minnesota Summer Community". REEL interesting if you've ever fantasized about having a place on Star.

First in line can borrow it for the cost of postage and a promise to return it. Lemme know at genegodawa at hotmail.

Lundrider,

Are you going on the rides with your wife? If it would just be your musky slaying bride she might want to check with my horse crazed lady...We are picking up a new Tennesee Walker that is smooth as I think a horse can physicaly be. There is another place in the Bemidji area but I don't know the name off the top of my head...will check with wife...

HELLO BRIAN,

I'M NOT TOO SURE WHAT MY WIFE WAS PLANNING, REALLY. I THINK SHE WAS PLANNING ON US RIDING TOGETHER, BUT PLANS CAN CHANGE IF SOMETHING ELSE COMES UP. I'M NOT SURE HOW MANY TIMES SHE WAS PLANNING ON GOING RIDING. I DON'T THINK SHE REALLY THOUGHT THERE WOULD BE A PLACE TO RIDE THAT WAS STILL OPEN FOR THE SEASON. IF I CAN FIND A PLACE WHERE SHE CAN GO, THAT WOULD BE GREAT.

HEY, GENEG,

THAT IS A NEAT BOOK TOO. PRETTY COOL BEING CASS LAKE NEWSPAPER ARTICLES FROM THE `GOOD OLD DAYS'. NEAT OLD PHOTOS TOO. I PICKED UP A COPY ON EBAY A WHILE BACK.

Lund,

It has probably been 5 yrs since I read it - about as long as its been since I went into Windigo - so I will have to re-read it this winter I think. That'll get me dreamin' about next year's trip back to Cass in June.

I can't wait already!

      I noticed this spring that the higher end Shimano Stradic and others have eliminated the ability to back reel (no reverse) which I believe is a huge mistake, I don't like it!    any others have comments?

      Went up north grouse hunting it was fun. I must say having a dog makes it better.  This weekend is duck opener and I am jacked up for it.

      The public launch at The Landing on the west end stays open until the ice sets in, but they do pull the dock sometimes around the end of October / beginning of November.

      Just curious if people are finding fish moving into fall patterns yet or still finding them in more summer locations?  I've been finding good sized panfish in deeper water myself around more mid lake structure. Most of the lakes I've been on are still pretty green with algae and weeds.

      Captain Acorn, I use Gamagatu  octopus hooks. Size 4 for crawlers and size 2 for minnows. Red, black, chartreuse, and pink , mostly red and black. I use orange and green glow soft beads at times. (Worked today!) Cliff
