      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 .

I was made a offer to buy 6 lots from a friend who purchased the lots in the 50s.He passed away few weeks back,and I was informed I was his frist choice to offer this to.

They are on Birch Ave,which is 1 Blk. east of Catlin & Belknap then north 3 Blks by 12th. I dont have all the info yet but I'd like to offer a fair price to his sister thats not to much for me,She's 72 and not much money,so I dont want to burn her and if their to much for me then I could at least help her get a fair price.

So can anyone give me a price range of what lots are going for in that area? These lots are unimproved,their the same as when purchased in the 50s.Could I also get info of what the area is like(the neighborhood I lived south of Duluth for a few years in the 80s)So any and all info would be appreciated. THANKS

I dont plan on driving up till open water

One thing you could do is call a realtor and inquire about lots for sale in that area. Ask for a general price saying you are looking to build or something.

You could also contact the city or county and find out what price they are being assessed at.

The bite has been good you must move from the others. If you now what I mean just get away 100 yards and you will do fine. Do not limit your self to others just move and they will bite. Good fishing to you all.

As mentioned by Powerstroke, you can get the taxable value of the lots from the Douglas County Assessor's Office if you have the legal description of the lots. Taxable value runs below market value by at least 10 percent in most cases, and more in others, but it'll give you a starting point. I find the $150 per lot very hard to believe.

Have you tried getting the tax info from the Douglas Cty website? I'd post the link, but would probably get in trouble. I went there and found a property look up. It says they will tell you the assessed value.

$150.00 sounds low, but it would depend on the lot size. Hopefully it's not a wetland. Good Luck.

      Thanks snowfighter. Coming up Dec 9 weekend.my brother took some fish outta little turtle the weekend of Oct 7 th. Sounds like from your end of the lake. Seen pics, some decent pike.

      With 2 trout stamps you can keep double your limit. You heard it here first on the interwebs!  Me and Mr Williams will swing by and say Hi this winter in Ely.   That is, if we can get around your sled!!  Happy Thanksgiving!

      don't  give them any ideas!

       There is probably not going to be much ice to speak of  if the forecast holds true. They are talking 50s on Friday, Sunday and Monday. Any ice we did have will most likely be gone, unfortunately.
    • snowfighter
      Haven't been out looking but things have been froze up for awhile. Heard there was some out on Bowstring last week.

      Wife you dummy  I know the problem first hand !!
    • MJ1657
      It's that time of year. Cone on up and see if you can claim the Nord Lord. Spearing in the Third River Flowage in Winnie. Pizza party Friday night in the lodge potluck in the ice Saturday at noon.   Any questions hollar.

      Saw something interesting on forest lake this morning...lake was completely locked up, yet someone had launched their boat and was trudging through the ice! That’s dedication! Anyone have any ice updates to report?

      2 Trout stamps.  Did I miss something and need to go back and get another?
    • Wanderer
      The 200 foot rule gets me a little but it has to be defined somehow what is occupied and what isn’t.   So for a wheelhouse we get to buy tabs to have on the road and a sticker to have it on the ice and go away for a little while.  Seems pretty close to double taxation since any LE can find out who the owner is from the current plate. Plus the spear shack that I might want to keep up over the weekend.  2 tags plus license. Combination sports license 2 trout stamps Waterfowl stamps Pheasant stamp  Turkey license (stamp now included) Deer license for all seasons   The bucket is getting heavy with all the drops in it.
