      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 .

We used to slay grouse around there .It was all private lands ,but with other shooting up there stuff those opps are gonzo.

Get a platt book for state and county lands to hunt or try for permission on private lands.

Sorry I can not be of more help.

I went out last Saturday and ended up shooting three grouse and one woodcock. I've been bow hunting more then bird hunting but I've seen a lot of birds this year, especially woodcock. I think I kicked up about 12 woodcock, probably because of all the rain we've had. My advice is hit the edges of swamps and hard woods in the thickest stuff you can find. There is a TON of state land up there, you can pick up the latest plot book in Aitkin.

O used to Hunt the McGrath Game Refuge. My parents have a cabin on Clear Lake at Glen. I used to hunt Just West of Glen and also about 5 miles East of Malmo. I have not hunted in a few years though so I don't know what is Public or Private anymore. I do know there is a lot of Public Land around Malmo and Glen though. I did hunt one afternoon years ago up around the Rice River just North of Dam Lake. Sorry! Wish I could be of more help. I hear there are lots of Grouse this year.

Just wondering guys, are you talking about where "That Dam Road" is? Not sure if you mean that Dam Lake opr another. We used to grouse hunt there a lot, but haven't in years. There really started to be lots more people once the rods were nicer where even a car could travel them easily. In the old days you needed to hoof it or have a 4x4 truck. I used to love going there though! Maybe different Dam Lake though.

If you are talking the road to Dam Lake by Kimberly, years ago that was a bad road....it is a little better now, but there is a lot of good hunting close by.

I hunted two times this year at the dam road. this road is west of hwy 65 about 3 miles, and is not at dam lake. I only saw a few grouse there, lots of poeple are hunting this area.

Funny how this got all confusing... I've hunted both areas a ton, not this year however. That Dam Road used to be stellar, but isn't as wonderful anymore. Still birds around, but not as thick. Dam Lake has some good hunting around it, but a lot of private land. Birds are plentiful in that area if you find the small plots of public land around there, or get permission.

Good luck!

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

      Has anyone ever stored with Oak Narrows Storage before? Need a spot to put a Polaris Ranger for the winter and thinking of calling them for a space, does anyone have any experience or feedback? Any other recommendations would be welcome. Need a 10x10 or 10x12 space likely.
      Thanks!

      the rum is back in its banks so bet the fishing is amazing? Anyone out trying? Where are all of you? I know it’s busy time but let us know what you are chasing.

      Tamarack Island Wilderness Lodge is pretty accommodating. Grassy Narrows Lodge is one of the nicer lodges in my opinion on the Canadian Southern portion. We made a point of stopping at a bunch of locations last year and this is good sized and really nice. At this point it would be my preferred Lodge on that portion of the lake. Both of these are boat into and on an island. Ryan

      Good afternoon guys, I live in Burnsville and I was wondering if anyone has had much luck on Crystal Lake for bass and Pike? I've fished it a few times and only caught 2 bass in a total of 8 hours.  Not looking for any specific locations, but any tips would be much appreciated!!!   Live bait? Plastics? Troll cranks for pike? thanks guys, have a great day. Gabe
