      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 .

My parents are looking at putting a camper at an area lake. They'd like to have a nice campground with trees and such. Campers not on top of each other. Lake with decent fishing and good lake access. What do you guys have for suggestions?

Thanks in advance for the help.

check out Elk Horn resort on my beloved South Twin Lake (rural Waubun Address) Nice spot on the south shore of the lake and seems to be pretty quiet in the summer. Awesome fishing too.

I spoke with the new owners at Elk Horn last summer and they are trying to get the OK from the county to put some more campers in there. I think they had some open spots even without adding more. They have a nice family oriented campground and the renovations to the store have been a nice change for kids. They have a movie night in the summer and also many games. If you need more info I have one of their flyers around here somewhere if I can find it.

Leech, do you have a place at Elk Horn? I could have sworn I saw a green car there last summer with a FM decal on the back.

Ok. Thanks Minneman. I can't believe how hard it is to find quality seasonal campgrounds in Minnesota. I guess lake front property is too expensive.

I think that Crystal Lida resort has opening as well. It is a nice set up with access to both Crystal and Lida. Boats can be a minor issue however. No dock slips available. Let me know if you are interested in more info and I can get you some.

Cory, I have been up on Pike lake for 5 years now and like it alot. It is also east of Waubun about 20 miles nest to Elbow lake. It is a small lake maybe a couple hundred acres or so with only two cabins on it. Other than that it is the campground with about 30-40 campers. Nice and peaceful. Not too fancy but pretty reasonable. Far enuff away from D.L. is the best thing. We were close too D.L. before which is not always a bad thing but seems to cost a lot more when the wife and kids and myself are that close to everyone trying to make a buck or two. The Gal that owns it is Donna Sindt. I don't have a number handy at the moment but can get it for you. If you are into campfires and good people this is a great place. Lots of kids and a good mix of everyday working stiffs like myself. I should mention The trail system which is right next too the resort. Many options for multispecies of fish within easy range. Leechbait is from up there and could tell you how great it is. It is worth the Drive if you ask me.

      I am headed to MN for my annual trip and wanted to target pike on leech. For the past 5-6 years I have been kayaking smaller lakes around the area but now I am back to having a decent boat for bigger waters. Used to fish the east side flats in Headquarters and Boy bay prior to my kayak days. Usual came earlier in the year as well. Bucktails on weedlines still my best bet or do you think crankbaits are the way to go just off weedlines? Better spots than others? Should be there a few days before / after Labor Day.

        I believe the  problem here is a hull with rocker.   At different trim and speed the hull does just that, rocks.   Normally you'd trim in, throttle up and once on plane, throttle back to cruise speed and adjust the trim out.    To be trimmed all in at WOT or even cruising speed would make must hulls plow water at the bow.   In the case with rocker you usually find the porpoise stops when you increase speed.   The fin might be enough to lift the transom up and stabilize it.   Let us know what you do and how it works.

      Went and tried a new spot... 3 snacky cats. One of them took my rod straight into the river and I had to dive in after it. Good times.

      I use the Daiwa ct r also have 2 of them best out there in my opinion.
    • FishinCT
      Pretty good for me from Monday through Wednesday. Found them from 14-24ft depending on the spot but most fish came from under 20ft. Trust the electronics and motor around til you find a good school. They are hitting pretty well when you find them

      Best wishes for a happy retirement Ace.   I could never have done the guide thing even if I were a good enough fisherman.   It takes a special type of person to deal with all the different people... Congratulations on a job well done.

      Terry, Sorry to hear that you have to retire after all of these years! I suppose It will be my turn to join you and Tommy before to many years also. See you on the water!! Cliff

      Congratulations on job well done sir. Your deserve time for yerself with Sandra an the whole younger crew. You have always been nice to me an a big help when I first seriously did the Muskie fish guide deal back summer 1996. We have had some fun times laughing online an in each other's boat over the years. Even boated a fish or three an coined a few major phrases still used in today's ever so silly online Muskie fish market.  Good stuff that I think only you n I could muster up and never take any of it seriously. Truely makes me smile clear to my middle all the junk we talked about an did. You are a good man Terry and welcome in my boat any time. Anytime. Ya done good and will not soon be forgotten. Thanks for being my friend on or off the water. The name fits as you really have been "The Ace"on our sweet Vermilion.   Still no fish round my docks but Bonnie, Polar Bear Boy an myself always have enjoyed your company. Yer the best in many ways my friend.  Thanks. Keep on Rocken!   Tommy.       PS.    I will continue to keep the Zombie Horde in check.    ; )
