      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 .

Non outdoor St. Cloud area question...

Recommended Posts

lawdog

What is the deal with Alltel phones in St. Cloud? Does Alltel not service St. Cloud or do they have some sort of problem there? I was up there over the weekend and couldn't dial any calls, not even to my voice mail. Said "number or code you dialed is not correct." I missed three calls, two of which were important and I'm really mad about it...

Any info from the area would be appreciated.

it's something with the area I think, because I have service out of mankato and my buddy from Iowa has the same problem here at school. It's worked fine up until recently, and I don't think my family in kato is having any problems. Then again it's been sketchy ever since they took over Midwest Wireless.

*well I just made a call and it went through no problems, first one in a while*

I have a unicel phone out of grand rapids and I used to have full power anywhere near st cloud, now for some reason when I go there I have almost no reception. Seems strange the claim the are putting up more towers and making reception better.

I have Alltel up here. Had much better reception when they were using Verizon towers, I just needed to do an update program on my phone and now it works about everywhere. Talk to your dealer about updates for the Alex, DL, St. Cloud area.

I was told that since they switched you might have to bring your phone in to get it worked on so it will work better, i know for former midwest users needed that.

Hey guys, I work for old Midwest Wireless Customer Service, now Alltel Tech Support in Mankato and there are no Alltel towers in or around St. Cloud so the area uses Sprint. I dont have the specifics but there was some sort of translation issue on the Sprint towers in the area causing the "invalid phone number or code" error. It should be resolved, but the problem started on Friday- just in time for the weekend. Hope that helps \:\)

So doughnut03, are you telling me I don't need some upgrade to my phone I was just SOL all weekend in St. Cloud but there is nothing to worry about now?

Thanks for all the replies guys!

You guys at Midwest Wireless were a much better operation than the poor service we get from Alltel!!!! Reception isn't as good and many problems...

There shouldnt be an issue at this point, no. And in the future, to save ya'll a 20 minute phone call for this same info... Any time you travel- 20 miles or 200, you want to make sure to update your Roaming List (*228, option 2). I agree wholeheartedly with the Midwest to Alltel conversion- service as well as working conditons did a nose dive down the icehole. Not to mention theres a reason they say Midwesterners are the most educated in the country

      You may want to consider #3 ; Rapala Jiggin Raps, or drop shoting. They both have been putting some nice size suspended slabs topside under some breezy conditions as of late. Fishing sure was downright epic the last week for all species. To bad it looks like "global warmering" is coming to an end for this year, was awesome while it lasted...... Those are some decent perch panman54. LOL!

      Pretty remote and flat back there. I haven't been on that exact shoreline but I bet you can pull a boat up there quite easily.

      I didnt hear how the second day went yet.  The long term average is 8% success up to 10% during the 2 deer era.  so 5.7% isnt bad for day 1.   Cooler weather will hopefully help us second weekenders. I havent seen much for rubs or scrapes here yet, should be starting any day.

      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?

      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.
