      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 .

Sportsman's Sleepers?

Tagging along this up coming weekend with a group of 5. We're going out of Sportsman's Sleepers. Just wondering if anyone can give a recent report or feedback about these sleepers.

Thanks-Randy.

I was up last weekend in a Riverbend sleeper (10th-13th) and were within sight of some of the sportsmans sleepers. Their sleepers seemed to be spread out from our location (34 fow 5 miles over pine) and then back toward Pine along a road which I think is maintained by Sportsman's. That road and their houses are tucked up against the Canadian border along that distance. I would imagine given the proximity to our location that bite would have been similar - see my report from early last week (Riverbend Sleeper Jan 10-13)...

Good Luck!

The sleepers are great accomodations with bunks, kitchenette, and folding chairs and table so it makes sleeping and eating a breeze. The sleepers are also pretty spacious and have an outhouse as well.

Just got back about a few hours ago staying at Sportmans Sleepers. We had four houses for a group of 19 guys. The result was about a bucket and half of fish for each house each day. Fishing wasn't fast and furious but consistant. We all had a good time and the fish frys were great.

The houses are very comfortable. I took my 8 year boy and 7 year old girl up with me last year and we had a great time. The house is very comfortable and the security of the radio in the house really is nice. The beds are great and the temperatures seem to be regulated very well. Plus, we caught a fair amount of fish. Needless to say, I booked again. We will be back soon!

Does anyone know where they have their sleepers know? Heading up there in a couple weeks and was just curious. Also, do they move them around a lot to get on fish or do they keep them in one spot. Thanks.

I talked to Sheri yesterday...going to stay in one early in February here - She said they are moving the houses almost everyday to stay on the fish and right now they are in about 32 feet of water.

We've been staying in Sportsman's Sleepers for the last 4 years and will be back in March. Dan, Tyler, Sheri and the others do a very good job. The Sleepers are very comfortable and spacious. We've had very good luck fishing as well. As far as moving the houses we have always come to a freshly moved house and if you want to move, they will move you. If you need anything they will get it. All in all we have been very happy with everything.

Dan is the man. The fish like all kinds of minnows and most colors.

Finally talked the wife into doing this (sleeper house LOW) year. However, she heard news of the tragedy this past weeek and now she's not real comfortable. Ive never gone before but would love to.. Has there been any issues like this in any of the sleepers that are rented out up there? Any information would be great, I still would love to do one of these trips. Thanks, in advance, the Perch

All of their sleepers have co detectors and vents in them but we always bring an extra for piece of mind. You can't be too safe.

      Best wishes for a happy retirement Ace.   I could never have done the guide thing even if I were a good enough fisherman.   It takes a special type of person to deal with all the different people... Congratulations on a job well done. 
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Terry, Sorry to hear that you have to retire after all of these years! I suppose It will be my turn to join you and Tommy before to many years also. See you on the water!! Cliff

      Congratulations on job well done sir. Your deserve time for yerself with Sandra an the whole younger crew. You have always been nice to me an a big help when I first seriously did the Muskie fish guide deal back summer 1996. We have had some fun times laughing online an in each other's boat over the years. Even boated a fish or three an coined a few major phrases still used in today's ever so silly online Muskie fish market.  Good stuff that I think only you n I could muster up and never take any of it seriously. Truely makes me smile clear to my middle all the junk we talked about an did. You are a good man Terry and welcome in my boat any time. Anytime. Ya done good and will not soon be forgotten. Thanks for being my friend on or off the water. The name fits as you really have been "The Ace"on our sweet Vermilion.   Still no fish round my docks but Bonnie, Polar Bear Boy an myself always have enjoyed your company. Yer the best in many ways my friend.  Thanks. Keep on Rocken!   Tommy.       PS.    I will continue to keep the Zombie Horde in check.    ; )

      I hope you enjoy your retirement!

      Keep the reports coming Curt, much appreciated.  Unfortunately, I'm not able to get back up there until September 22-25th., so it going to be tough keeping my mind on work and not LOW.  Are you just moving around in the basin until you mark a school of fish, and then jigging them?  I see all of your waypoints on the screen you showed, so those must be spots that have held fish at one time.

      Hey everybody, I have my last two guide trips on the 22nd and 23rd of August. A bad back and old age have taken their toll and I will retire from a job I have loved to do for the last 27 years.  I still enjoy it but unfortunately my body just can't take the pounding anymore. I'll still be out there fishing but no longer on a daily basis. I will miss all the regular clients I have had over the years and all the new people I have met that I can call my friends. Thanks to all of you that have shared the boat with me over the years, I hope you all had a good time. "Ace"   "It's just fishing man"

      Bought a couple of baitcaster reels..my first....Lew's BB1 speed spool and Daiwa Tatula CT R. After about two weeks of daily practice casting in the river behind our house....lots of backlashes(birds nests)...I gotta say, I've come to love casting with these reels....much more accurate than my spinning reels. Any other baitcasting fans out there?  If so, what do you use?
