      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.

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

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.

      Lets see you will need- 
      a) license and lion permit/tag 
      b)guide 
      c) dogs with tracking collars 
      d) horses 
      e) some sort of thing that goes "BOOM" 
      and a ton of forethought for asking such a dumb question

      8/21/17     Got out on Mille Lacs on Saturday morning. Started out on rocks in 10-12 feet of water, then as the sum came up and the wind layed down moved to gravel in 28-30 feet and then the deep transition from a rock/gravel reef to the soft lake bottom in 32 feet of water. Caught smallies and walleyes on the rocks, and walleyes on the gravel and the deep transition line. Power bobbing with leeches about one foot above bottom on the rocks and two to four feet above bottom in the deeper spots. The five smallies went from 16 to 18.5 inches, and the walleyes went from 16 to 25.5 inches. They weren't jumping in the boat--we had to try different spots, move around slowly on spots with the MinnKota, and then anchor when we did catch or see fish on the Humminbird. Had to work for them, but wound up averaging three fish per hour with the faster action early and then slowing when the sun got high and the wind layed down--typical August fishing. Eyes and smallies are fat and look healthy--both fought very actively. Surface water temp. started at 68.7 degrees at sunrise and was to 72.4 when we headed in. Still a little cooler than average, but that is how this summer has been. Might be my last time on Mille Lacs--busy with football now and waterfowl hunting starts in a month. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      these should be available at Circuit City, BestBuy, or pretty much any other electronics store. Go check them out, a play around with them, just to see which one you find easier to use.

      Best is the one that's suited to the purpose used for. 
      My usual preference is a middleweight Standard because it's versatile and can serve many purposes with only quickly made alterations - add saddlebags, rack etc. 
      No need for more than two cylinders. 

      My view of what's best? 
      2 wheels, a frame and a 2 cylinder 4 stroke motor.

      Are you out to add color or protect the wood or both? A natural oil sealer is something to consider -- it lets the beauty of the natural cedar show though and still protects the wood. You can also get the same type of "penetrating oil sealer" in colors. Hard finishes (varnish) may look tacky and will require re-sanding and finishing over time --while the oil sealers can be touched up annually with a new light coat without sanding -- a much more natural look. Go to a "real" paint store and talk to them about your project -- skip the Home Depots and Lowe's "advice"

      you want a hard, fine-grained wood for carving lures. high quality wood so your hardware won't split the wood or so it won't soak up a lot of water then split. water WILL gain access to the wood no matter how good the paint. 
      and the acrylic is fine.

      I know this: you need to be on the water around 4:00am and the window of opportunity is small. When 6:00am rolls around, you should be done fishing for sturgeon.

      Is the canadian seal hunt still going on? if it is still on, does anyone know when it is supposed to commence this year? If any one have good idea please reply me with a quality comments.

      Was up this last weekend got out Saturday morning and Sunday morning.  The fish were biting very aggressively which made for a good time.  All fish from 14"-19".  No slot fish which was a surprise.  On a side note...  I've never had too much trouble with people honing in on where I am fishing.  But Sunday morning I started fishing this spot around 8am (which is late for me).  Nobody was around me and within an hour there had to of been six new boats around me.   I don't mind too much if your fishing an area by me but when you start trolling and drifting my same exact line I am???  Like do you want to hop in my boat and fish with me too?  Some people I tell ya..  Anyways get out there, the fish are biting.   Just remember there is 40,000 acres of water to fish out there.

      Ace, I've (along with countless others) have so appreciated your advice on this forum- your knowledge is invaluable. Can't thank you enough for being willing to share- that can be a rare thing these days!  I hope the retirement from guiding isn't also a retirement from posting  Take care and enjoy!
