      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 .

Cool Cats 2008

There is a thread started about this in the FM Gatherings forum with more info and map but this is another place it belongs.

On Saturday March 1st there will be an FM gathering on Horsehoe lake fishing for catfish. Last year it was cancelled because of all the snow but hopefully this year will work out. There seems to be alot of new people on this St. Cloud forum now so would be nice to see some of you out there.

I'm planning on heading out to horseshoe on tuesday. Any info on the ice conditions you guys could give me would be much appreciated. I've only accessed the lake from the south side and was wondering how the conditions from the north side lot are.

My 10 yr old daughter has been asking about the cool cats get together since August. We're definitely planning on attending again this year.

Moosedrool I saw vehicles all over Horseshoe two weeks ago already. That being said you still have to be careful on that lake, I wouldn't venture far off the main driving areas if you don't know the lake. Good luck and let us know how you do.

Tippmann,

my plan was derailed this morning. Need to get some carpet put in downstairs and they have an opening tomorrow morn. I should have found a slacker installer cry.gif. What a kick in the shorts.

Thanks for the info though.

I will be there, but i have a few questions. I am going to be coming by myself and have never fished the lake and was wondering if there is a road plowed out there or a definate path that i would be able to follow.

I'm planning on attending as well. Hopefully be on ice around 7:30, I'll be going by myself. See you all out there!

Can a car make it out there and park w/o getting stuck?

Hoppe there is usually a pretty beaten path off the winter access.

Yes, there is a path out to the meth hole. If you are driving south from Richmond on hwy 22, you will see the gathering on your right side as you cross over the bridge.

Between the path and the map provided in the Fm Get-togethers thread you shouldn't have any problem finding it. When I was out there the other day a car would have no trouble getting around off the trail.

      HooDoo Point, Everett Bay public landing, or the Casino are all good landings if you want to fish Big Bay. The Y-Store or  the Food and Fuel in Tower both have good bait. Cliff

      Anything from moccasin point west can be pretty spotty with Verizon. If you're on big bay it's tough to beat

      I just read an article in the paper recently, that pout fest might be relocated to Lake Bemidji in 2018. It never gave a reason why though. Anyone know anything?
    • eyeguy 54
      we cant figure out what they want in that lake. LOL

      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.
    • gunner55
      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.
