      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 .

Weetown burnt down.

Recommended Posts

It is a sad day in Otter Tail County. One of the most famous landmarks in Otter Tail County was lost early this morning when fire gutted the Pantry and Pub in Weetown. Thank God that no on was hurt. I will miss Thursday night buck burger, The meeting spot for the days snowmoblie ride, The Noon burgers I would run down and get when I was working around the yard, and last but not least the the great people. I have heard no word on Owner' plans on what they will do from here. I wish them the best of luck.

That is terrible news. It was one of my favorite pitstops when riding the sleds up to D.L.

I didn't even get a chance to check that place out yet! Too busy moving and getting settled in, and she burns. Bummer.
I did hear that the owners are going to re-build. I hope they do, it looks like a great location, and even better if they build a new establishment! Change for the better?

I only got there a couple times that I remember but I can relate to the loss. Anyone here ever hang out at spruce grove between frazee and detroit lakes in their wild youth?
It was a sad day when that one went also, many of our parents probably met there, carved their names into the booth or table. It was alot of fun..... Paul

Hey Biggestfish!

Just a note to let you know I'll be camping at my place on Heilberger Friday & Saturday attempting to do some mowing/cleanup. I'll be back the first weekend in August with my wife & girls. Stop by if you see me around.

I'm sure going to miss my WeeTown "snack" breaks! Any word on a possible re-build?

I will be unable to make it over this weekend, we have other plans... I hope you have your mower blade sharpe..HA HA. I should be able to catch you that 1st weekend in Aug.

Weetown update. Thursday they knocked down the burned out shell that was left after the fire. The last I heard on the rebuild was about 3 weeks ago when I ran in to the owners at Target... They said they had one more meeting with the insurance adjuster and would base their plans on that meeting, since then I have not heard anything. I have heard a lot of rumors, but nothing for sure... I do hope they rebuild.

      Thanks to all those who came out yesterday and it was great to see you all. I had fun catching fish and chatting. I will put another one together later in the year.

      Had another good weekend of fishing.  Fished Thursday evening to Saturday afternoon and found consistent action all hours of the day.  Caught 5 slotters 22-25", and was able to be picky on eaters, only keeping 15-17" walleyes.  Plenty of small eyes also, plus I caught 4 eelpout. I did learn a lesson on how to take eelpout off of the hook.  I tried to lift a 20" pout out of the hole by line and the hook pulled out and embedded the bobber in my styrofoam ceiling.  The next time I used the fish pliers to lift the slimy fish out. Had 10" of ice where I was, and a lot of large wheelhouses were being pulled out there.  Yesterday someone drove a Jeep out to a wheelhouse close by.  I think we will see a lot more vehicles driving out in the next week.  Fortunately the added weight hasn't pushed much water on top of the ice.

      I think the fourm would still be pretty strong....however when they split the fourm sites up & stuff and changed some things a few years ago it pretty much killed this site. Traffic is a crawl.....they blame it on new media like Facebook and other stuff......which is an excuse.....poor one at that.......the other ice fishing website I go to is stronger then ever.......This use to be my favorite site, today it's in sad shape & I only come because I remember what it once was hoping that it gets back to it someday.

      Big Marine had 8" at the north access out to the weeds before the main lake.  Lots of walkers, a number of wheelers.  5 inches past the weeds above the ice before the island.   Access was crazy...very inconsiderate people tripple parking, a guy I was with got parked in, trucks behind and in front of him.  Luckily I was parked beside him and was able to move enough that he could get his truck out.   Fishing was very slow.  Couple panfish, a bass and snake northern.

      I'm definitely itching to get on the river.

      I was out on Hiniker Pond last night. Had no luck with fish but I was after dark. Straight out from the pier about 30 yards you got a solid 3.75 to 4 inches. Duck lake has about 5 inches. Henry had 4 inches last week. Not sure about this week.

        Doc was up there with a couple of his boys on Thursday fishing out of portables.  He gave me a call when he was on the ice.  I said, “. Let me guess what you got on”.  Red stripe Demon with a female fat head hooked through the pooper hole on the dead stick and a purple smelt rattling flyer with a minnow head on the other pole.  I nailed it.  He still uses a jiggle stick for his dead stick.  He had to sign off as a fish came in on the Vex.  Put it in the bucket Shaky.
