      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 .

The spot I would get married at in NE MN is actually part of Cathedral of the Pines Church Camp or whatever it is. Its a fire area along the Superior Hiking Trail just off the Caribou Trail. Its a larger fire/ceremony area along the hiking trail overlooking Caribou Lake. Beautiful if your looking for an outdoor wedding. Maybe its too far east for you.

There's a campfire area by some cedars near the shore of Shagawa Lake below Grand Ely Lodge in Ely, Casey. Not sure if that's too far away for or not, but I've photographed two weddings in that location and it's very nice.

Nah, LR, we talk about all kinds of things here, not just fishing. And I got lucky. I married my fishing partner, and she's the one who's always on ME to go fishing, not the other way around, so marriage hasn't ruined my fishing career. grin.gifgrin.gif

My cousin got married out at the campground area on the Kawishawi River on Hwy 1. They have a great old pavilion in case it rains. It was very cheap to rent also.

I kayaked by a wedding in progress on the shores of Gooseberry. There's a nice old CCC building where they were having their reception. It's a beautiful site when the weather's nice but can be cold and miserable if the weather's bad--who can predict that?

Casey,

Fished with a friend of mine on a lake in Cherry, think it was called Star Lake. It's somewhat of a private lake, they hold alot of weddings there from what he said. They have a pavillion and dance hall and also kitchen facilities. If your interested, I can get a contact for you. Met some of your family at the Duluth Boat show this year...Nice people.

A couple ideas-

Some friends had a reception at curling club/ hockey hall of fame and it was a nice time-also easy walking distance to bar hop. Maybe Olcott Greenhouse/gardens in town? Tower/vermilion isn't that far away either.

My wife and I got married in the old log church in Bovey and had a reception in Grand Rapids at the KAXE radio station-they have a huge saddle tent that came in handy for rain. There is also a park on lake about 15 min north of virginia off of 53-can't remember the name. Either way if your doing it on the cheap any place that is special to both of you will work,local park/lake, even a friend's yard/cabin. It's nice to have hotels or better yet campgrounds nearby for the reception but don't sweat the small stuff,it's all about you guys and your guests can deal w/ it, in fact we spent alot of time planning (= worrying) and I'd rather have eloped in vegas and then thrown a huge reception afterward when you get home. The important thing isn't the wedding itself it's how many fish you catch in the years to follow;-)

Sorry I don't have any suggestions for weddings locations in those parts but it looks like the guys are have some very good ones.

All I can offer is a location with a backup plan to get under shelter if it rains. If that location has picnic tables all the better. State Parks usually have something like that. I know Jay Cooke does.

Food, maybe you can ask attendees to bringa dish for a buffet style dinner. Get some nice looking plastic table cloths, disposable plats. Make a center piece for each table. Flowers will be out so you or someone can make a few arrangements.

I like camo but you look very nice in that wedding dress and I like it. I think you like it too.

Casey...last year a co-worker got married and had the reception at the Mesaba Coop Park. Was kinda cool, they have that old 2 story building, they had the ceremony up on the stage and then downstairs had the meal, then it was back upstairs for the dancin and drinkin. A few people got cabins or camped there too.

my niece got married at the top of Giant's Ridge. Everyone took the chairlift to the top and with the background of Wynne Lake and the forest it was awesome. Reception was right at the Ridge

      Jeez no. I can barely remember the netting discussion, let alone which side that I was arguing! Yup, you can see us cruising past quite often probably intent on satisfying the little one's quest for some ice cream at Moosebirds. She loves Sue and Ron. I'll definitely wave or stop by if I see you. I'll be up the next two weekends.

      How do you guys like to fish the west end as we transition into September and early fall? My next planned time at the cabin will be Labor day, I'm sure it'll be plenty busy on the lake but hoping to find a few quiet spots in the mornings and evenings to do some walleye fishing.
    • leech~~
      Plus+1  The size seems to drop off late in the year. Last year bait shops I went to were selling Large as Jumbos and small as large!
    • RuddyDuck
      Reminder, meeting tonight at 7:00pm in Annandale and written comment period runs til August 28th. The email addresses for comment are on pages 18-19. Comment now or the days of fishing your favorite lake anytime you want, will be over! I’m sure this is coming to a county near you if this goes thru out here.
    • gimruis
      Not uncommon at all for this time of year.  I used to try and find some regularly around Labor Day and always ran into problems.  I think its just the nature of the bait business.
    • BringAnExtension
      Does anyone know where I can get some jumbo leeches between the Twin Cities and Mille Lacs?  I would even settle for large.  There seems to be a shortage of supply. Thanks!
    • proguide
      Our prayers were answered from the south with some river flow. For now the river is back to easier and safer boating so we can get around.
        The catfishing has held steady, same as the past two weeks. The fish have moved to the shallow off current sides of the river since the nights have recently become cooler.  Sits have become longer to 25-35 minutes per spot to allow the fish to find the bait.  Mid-Day don't be afraid to find some current or move back to the middle to see if the fish have moved out to feed.
        Bait has been frozen suckers and frogs.  All other baits just don't seem to have the same effectiveness.
        We are entering into some transitions to fall and things will be changing over the next week or two.  The new flow should get the fish moving a bit more and that fall feed should ramp up over the next couple weeks.

      Also check for water in the fuel filter. At higher rpms water droplets travel to carbs and causes poor combustion. Happened to me some years ago. Had to drain water out of tank.
    • CigarGuy
      Skunked, It was nice meeting you.  I've seen you,  your wife and little one a few times, but you never waved-thought you might be mad at me after we had a little debate on netting.  Sounds like were good!  Stop by if you see me on the dock.  That was my wife and sister in-law assembling the bench. That pinch area on the river is tight and some folks tend to fly right thru.  Also, people fishing on that dock in the pinch down area in the spring, don't like to reel in their bobber when you try to navigate through the boats in the spring.  I used the fish the St Louis River a lot and fellow fisherman were terrible flying by you.  I too follow the no-wake policy when going through tight areas.
    • delcecchi
      Yep, done for the year.  Not much for heat or insulation in the cabin.  It's a real, honest to goodness cabin.   So, as of Thursday, adios.  Until next year, etc.
