      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 .

JR's Corner

Coming up this weekend and we'll be using JR's access. What is the best way to get there from Kelliher? Is there an address that I could use on Mapquest. Has anyone used the access recently? Thanks in advance.

72 N out of Kelliher and then take a right on 23. Then just keep driving until you see JR's. The road will change to gravel eventually and then it is a couple of miles after that. You will see a sign when you come to it.

It is a good place! A nice spot to clean fish and he will fry them up and give you a huge plate of fries for $5. Can't beat it. They also have pizza, beverages, showers, etc. I forget the access fee. Somewhere around $10 I believe.

I will be there myself this weekend out of JR's.

Good luck.

Was up to JR's last week and caught good numbers of walleyes before the cold front. Just stop in and talk to JR and he will tell ya where to set up. I like being able to take walleyes back to their bar and get em cooked up with fries for 5 bucks.

We caught all our fish on a dead stick, plain hook and minnow! They left the area after we jigged, so we left it up to dead sticks and rattle reels. Our game of dirty clubs rarely made it two hands without a fish being caught.

Coming up this weekend and heard from a buddy that a couple guys he knows got into some eyes out of jrs during the nasty weather last wekend. Has this area been fairly productive all year? bringing my brother who's never been on red just trying to get him into some action. Last year we went out of hillman's and did a lot of hole popping and pounded the slabs. wondering if there has been anything to speak of in this area regarding the slabs or is it the typical 1-2 mixed in?

If you have the fish cleaned there and Barney is doing the cleaning say hi to him for me. We play poker every week if he's back home. Just tell him it's the guy who always wins. He'll know who! Thanks!!

Coming up Sat-Mon. Is there shower's available down by JR's Corner, or do I have to head up to WestWind?

Also, renting a 4-man sleeper from Battle River Lodge, I assume Jerry will take care of a guy?

Don't know about JR's, but Morts has showers, you don't need to go all the way to the east side for that...

JR's does have showers available for customers.

Out of 24 hours I think Jerry spends at least 95% of his time up at the lake. He comes home for supplies and heads back up....so I think he will take care of you! Let me know if he doesn't!! I'm sure JR sees him more than I do! crazy.gif

Just got a call from Jerry at 6:27PM (friday) and he says it's like an old timer used to say "some are catching and some are not"! One group is here for a few hours and they are doing really well...in a "hot" spot and others are not doing as well.

I forgot to ask on specific species...so presuming walleye.

      Got up to Bowstring again at Geigers Trails End Resort. Went up to get some crappies nd found them but again could not get one to bite out deep.  One spot they were 7 feet thick ! LOL   So we chased perch and did great. No 12 inchers but a lot of dandies. Not sure if I will get back up before ice.  Crappies should be great this winter.

      Where's the best place to get bait at Vermillion?? Is Hoodoo the best access to fish big bay? The girlfriend and I are going to come up for a day trip tomorrow...Thanks for any help.

      I believe that there is a campsite or picnic area in the bay just South of the S-Curve  located adjacent to the WMA, I believe that Green Herons and Blue Herons nest in the trees there! Cliff

      Hope everyone had a great summer season of fishing and otherwise, and here's to hoping the fall season is going well.  I'm planning to get some grouse hunting in while up in a couple weeks and noticed Pine Island has a WMA on it.  Figured if I had time, I can take a quick ride out to there and have fun walking around on an island WMA.  Does anyone have any input on difficulty of beaching a boat somewhere along the shoreline on the north or south side, if even possible?   Thanks for the help and advice this year from everyone I talked to on here.  Looking like I may miss out on hard water this year and will have to put cracking that nut off until next year.

      Northwestern and central Minnesota have elevated fire danger due to sparse rain, high winds and lack of humidity. This means that open burning may be restricted in certain counties. The Department of Natural Resources urges Minnesotans to use caution while burning yard waste or leaf piles outdoors and to check the burning permit website for information.  “During fall, we know that residents and property owners will be taking care of leaf and brush piles,” said Casey McCoy, DNR wildfire prevention supervisor. “Piles can smolder undetected for several weeks under the right conditions. Windy, fall days can reignite these piles.” On average, Minnesota issues approximately 43,250 burn permits annually. When weather conditions warrant it, state fire team leaders may turn burning permits on or off. To determine whether burning is allowed, Minnesotans should regularly check their county burning restrictions. Residents may need to find alternatives to burning such as composting or hauling brush to a collection site or wait until it is safer to burn. “If you do decide to burn yard waste or leaf piles, do so when there is less wind,” said Linda Gormanson, burning permit coordinator. “Instead of burning your yard waste and potentially causing a wildfire, compost or chip your yard waste or bring it to a collection site.” Burning restrictions do not apply to campfires; they are still allowed. Clear an area around the campfire, watch it continuously and make sure it is out cold to the touch before leaving. Fire danger can change quickly. Check the Minnesota Incident Command System site https://goo.gl/W686km for fire behavior conditions. For questions about burning restrictions, check the DNR page at mndnr.gov/burnrestrictions or call your local Forestry office. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Lots of boats on the river daily here in LF now.  Select people are hitting good pods of fish and catching well.  Flows, though still Very swift, are slowing.  Fish are becoming a little more scattered, more fish are being caught away from shore and away from prominate structure. Minnows and tubes pulling most fish.  A few nice fish here and there most are falling in the 15-17 inch range. Good luck out there.
