      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 .

I need to replace and add some propane lights in my perm. fish house. Is one brand better than the other, and who sells them for a reasonable price?

Why don't you wire it for 12 volt? Up at the deer shack we put in #14 wire just like you would in your house - switch and everything. A ceramic screw in light fixture and a 12 volt bult (at any auto parts store) and you're good to go. No noise, less heat, no CO.

It is wired for 12 volt as well as 120. 12 volt lights and alarms in each hole(6) and a 12 volt wall and ceiling light. All run off deep cycle batt. Running 12 volt lights for an all night cribbage game draws to much juice out of batt. Don't want to bring more than 1 battery back and forth. Propane lights are always there and working(2-100lb tanks). They are close to 30 yrs old(3rd generation fish house) and I was thinking of replacing with todays model. We are going to add 4 ft to house this summer, will be fixing and repairing many things at that time. Probably go fluorescent on light replacement, i think they draw less than 12 volt bulb.Main source of light will still be propane, I tend to stay "old school".

If your replacing the lights go with LED. You be able to play card for days probably with plenty of light. For the propane ones, have you tried cleaning the current lights or the lines. Sometimes condensation can decrease the gas flow. My friend's cabin used propane lights and they were 50 years old when he remodeled. I cleaned the lines by them once and they worked much better.

Buy some LED lights and you could run most of the winter on them off a battery if you don't run anything else with them.

A good line cleaning is something i was thinking of also. Not sure how I'm going to do it yet.

      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.

      The crappie bite here has been very fussy, almost like ice fishing. So windy it's been tough to fish the way they seem to want it, most of the time.

      4 outfits out here right now.

      Fall fishing is so solid on Lake of the Woods right now. The fish may bite a different times everyday but they bite, and bite good, everyday. Had Pete Smith in the boat Thursday and it really couldn't have gone any better. Check it out, this weeks NCOR LOTW Fishing Report from Curt's NCOR Guide Service

      5.7% success in warm, breezy weather.  Hopefully that doubles for next weekend.  I think the weather will be a little cooler at least. I only heard 1 field report.  2 does and 2 fawns sighted. 1 in the morning and 3 in the evening.   I've heard area reports the deer are starting to move but not much for scrapes and such.  The leaves have been coming down and the woods opening up.  I've personally seen the deer start and stop using some areas as fall has set in.
