      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 .

Ash River Snowmobile Visit Recommendations

Recommended Posts

lureman

We are visiting the Ash River area this coming weekend for snowmobiling. Looking for any recommendations on must see/ride trails and any good places to grab a mid-day lunch or evening supper. We will be lodging at a resort on Ash River so that will be our headquarters.

Any trail reports would also be appreciated. it is terrible cold here in the Northwest hopefully we can get back to more normal temps.

Thanks!

lureman,

Trail conditions in and around the Ash River/Kabetogama/Voyageurs Nat'l Park area continue to be excellent. Groomers have been able to get to the portages and all land trails are in great condition!

All lake trails are marked and staked. Lake running has become great w/ snow and cold temps the past week.

President's weekend is shaping up to be awesome. Local snowmo club has a medallion hunt starting on Feb. 13 thru the 17th. Ash River-Kabetogama Snowdrifters.

Check out ALL area trail conditions (Arrowhead, Voyageur Trail ((Ash River/Kabetogama)), Int'l. Falls, Crane Lake and Voyageurs Nat'l Park at the club web site too.

Are you tired of ditch bangin' in Hallock? I spent 22 years there doing that! This is God's country up here! You'll love it!

LET IT SNOW!

We will be up this weekend for a putt. Looking forward to seeing our friends up north. I was thinking about trying some hard water fishing but I know the wife is gonna want to ride so we will be leaving to fishing gear home. Probably will go to the Ledge for a burger and a sodapop Saturday night. Giddy up!

lureman - places to see...Grassy Bay Cliffs are pretty cool. Kettle Falls is another great place to see - especially in the winter. Not sure if they have groomed that way or not tho. What you'll really love up here will be the beauty of the lakes and what an awesome land trail system we have. Lots of loops - head out one way and come home a different way!

Lunch - Rocky Ledge, Lure Me Inn, Kec's Kove, Sandy Point, Arrrowhead Lodge (all on Kab). Gateway Store (US 53 at Kab corner) for a quick rolla dog, a soda and some gas - sorry - gasoline. Woodland Inn @ Ray, Lu's @ Ericsburg, Thunderbird & Island View on Rainy, Melgeorges on Elephant Lake, Norway Point on Pelican Lake, just to name a few.

Amen to ditch bangin. The darn wind has blown so hard this winter the little snow we have is in drifts as hard as curb stops. Cross country riding is difficult the prarie fields look like a flat land mogul coarse!

We all look forward to the Ash River visit will be riding Saturday-Monday. Hopefully things warm up a bit as we don't want to freeze the ladies up! Appreciate the listings on places to see and refresh!!

I see you spent a few years here in God's Country, I came to Hallock in 1987. The prarie grows on a guy but a visit to the big wood is hard to beat.

lureman,

I arrived in Hallock kicking and screaming in 1959 at the local hospital. Finally left the area (not kicking and screaming) in '82. Been a resident tourist of Kab since '77 and permanent resident since 2004.

Where are you staying on the trail? Would like to say HI and see what you think about the area. Just tell me your resort and first name and I may hunt you down.

One trip here (Hallock to Kabetogama 218 miles) and you'll never wanna ditch bang or run the Red again!

If I don't see ya, have a great vacation in the area!

LET IT SNOW

We plan on coming up friday after work. Will stop and top off the tanks with some premium at the Gateway store and then settle in for the night. Really looking forward to the weekend. snowmobiling Sat and making 2x8's with Greg on sunday before I go home. Planning on building a 12 x 30 woodshop in the pole barn and a 12 x 12 garden shed in the back yard for Kathy. Do you think Sam will want to go snowmobiling? I can only imagine!

I hate all you guys. ;\) Kidding! Some friends are staying at Ash Ka Nam this weekend and I have to miss the trip this year. cry.gif Oh the trials and tribulations of family life. I keep telling myself next year, next year.

Have a great time everyone. My friends are bringing their kids with for their first real snowmobile trip. I can't think of a better place for it.

      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.
