      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 I went out on the lake I didn't think I had service and I have sprint, but I don't think that any of the companies will have service out there but I may be wrong.

Altel works on the South Shore. Not sure if it was roaming though.

I think if you do a search of this forum you will find the answer to your question.

I have T-mobile and verizon. Unfortunately T-mobile was a no go for me. Verizon worked great.

Sprint, Verizon and Unicel works of course. The tower you can see blinking off the NE corner of the lake is a Unicel tower.

Verizon and Unicel both work as they share towers... And which Verizon has bought Unicel now or is very close to finishing the deal!

Sprint works but I know that it goes into roam mode, well it least last year when I was up there it did. So if you are with Sprint and you don't have free roam watch out for your bill.

The past 3 years I have had service with sprint on Red, sometimes sketchy but service. This summer at Hillmans full service, then it would get worse the further out in the lake I was. But now this winter I had zero service anywhere. I was out Hillmans road, out Rogers road and everywhere in between including waskish. Not sure if it's my new phone, or the bad weather or what. Bottom line no service from sprint for me.

I was able to use Qwest/Sprint 4 1/2 miles out on Hillmans road. I was also able to use my mobile broadband card when we were up. A buddy that was with also had use of his Verizon service.

I went out of the south three weeks ago I have sprint no service for us. I was told at Morts that unicel seems to work good.

      Got some grouse and saw some nice coveys. The biggest was 6 birds but found couple groups of 5. That is always fun.

      we mainly jigged fatheads in front of their mouths. 2 weeks ago also and tried a few different times over 3 days this trip. water is still crazy low so I don't think many boats will be using access. Also tried a couple different plastics and some gulp. Probably ready to go crazy up there soon.  Last year at this time it was really good. Might get there once more before ice time but not sure.

      Been thinking about breaking out the Jiggin Raps, might have to give that a shot. It's been too crowded out there this weekend with MEA going on.

      Sounds good! May an oversized deer with obscenely large antlers find its way to you!

      Well the weather was pretty crappy but the fish were biting...Had to sort through but kept some for dinner. Caught a variety today, eyes,jumbos,crappie and a few smallies... rigging on or next to rocks worked best for us.

      hummm, hadn't heard a thing?
    • ANYFISH2
      Good luck. Maybe we will see you Friday. I will let you know how things are looking by us as the weekend goes by.

      I still hope it's double!  I just went over the map with my brother and talked about our options.  We have enough places to go for sure.  It's always fun planning and talking about past hunts. I put out the question to the other two guys about staying in camp vs the house.  We'll see what they decide.  I hauled our "cabin" home from Ely today so we should have plenty of room if they wanna camp.
