      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 .

When you use the services of Jonny, Kelly, and Patsy, you are in for a first class operation.

This past weekend some guys and myself rented a sleeper from these guys. Holy Cow!!! This house was huge enough to play hockey in!! It's clean to boot!!! It was one of the few I've rented that didn't smell like rotting fish, or a fart, or some kind of science experiment. They come out and check on you often, show you a few fish catching tricks, and of course warn you about the URL seals.

Part of a great weekend.

What an awesome time. Anyone thinking about hitting URL should really ring up the Waskish Minnow Station. To say you will be pleased with their services is an understatement.

Legal disclaimer- Jon, just cuz you can, doesn't mean we actually did play hockey in the fish house. grin.gif

Quite a few crappies and even more walleye.

No pike or perch, but Jon knew we wanted crappie and eyes so that's where he put us.

The DNR officers.

and to add to the post about Kelly and Jon, They are the best. I was the guy holding everything up with my truck not starting, they went completely above and beyond to help me get it started, and never acted as if I was inconveniencing them, I cant thank you enough for all your help. They also put us on some fish on friday night we caught 2 perch 2 crappies 1 northern and around 15 walleye, then after the sun came up all we got the rest was like 4 walleye 1 northern, but all in all was a Great weekend, all thanks to Kelly and Jon, I would recommend them every time. Thanks again!!

Boiler the house looked fine, we did find claw and scratch marks where Bob was sitting. \:D

Spinner fisher, its not like we haven't been broke down on the lake before, bad place to have a dead rig. I'm just glad we got your rig going and didn't have to drag it to town.

Spinnerfisher, sorry I kept dozing off while talking to you but I'm middle aged and slipping into old age while trying to do a young mans job. Sometimes there is just no gas left in the tank. tired.gif

Boiler Guy- You were not too far from us, but it was way to cold to venture over. Sorry man maybe next time. We ended up with 100 walleye's, 20 crappies, 2 northerns,and one perch on Scott's circle! grin.gif

Labs- nice to meet you and glad you guys got that car started.

I posted details in update posts.

Woodman, it was nice meeting you too. Did your buddies ever find Ludlow Island? grin.gif Me thinks they probably didn't want any more stories form Jon and I.

Getting that car started was easy for me... just drive Jonny over to their car, hand him my genrerator and let him hook up their engine block heater... "DOH crazy.gif 'I' knew we should've hooked that up!". Couple hours later, I guess she fired right up. Give Jonny a warm bowl of soup when he brough the generator back and all was good. Note to everyone on the big lake! Don't point your grill into the wind when you park your vehicle!

On a weekend like that, I was almost glad I had a diesel... I think it ran for 40 outta 48 hours! But boy it was always nice and warm when you jumped in it! Which wsn't all that bad as the thermometer on the dash showed -24 degrees! blush.gif

Good Luck!

Ken

Labs- They asked me where it was and I told them St. Cloud. grin.gif There were so full of it that night, that I shut my talky off so I could fish in piece and quiet. My dad caught a huge crappie and eye when he was out for the afternoon. It was great to get him back ice fishing again. My generator sure paid for itself this weekend, best Christmas gift I got! grin.gif

Truck ran lots due to everybody driving it to go to the bathroom, and to shore to get stuff. I should have charged them for the use of it so I can fill it up again. The wife was shocked at how much gas was left when I got home.

Great weekend and lots of memories for URL! whistle.gif

      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.
    • Wanderer
      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!
    • grundy
      don't  give them any ideas!
    • fisherjmb
       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.
    • Jim Almquist
      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?
    • leech~~
      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.
