      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 .

Mike and Diane,

Just wanted to say thanks again for the hospitality over the last couple of days. Can't wait to get back up there again soon. I will definately recommend you to anyone that is looking for a place to stay in that area. Now just need to figure out a way for me to make a living up there and then we'll be neighbors grin.gif

Paul~Glad you guys were able to come up and Barry was able to do so well his first trip up, is he telling everyone how easy it is to get a limit smile.gif
I don't know about you moving up this way...that would be one more person for Mike to go fishing with and then I would never see him around here!

Hey Paul...room in the Inn just for you (although somedays it's more like the nuthouse smile.gif!)

As of last night the accesses were doing really well and people were out all over with no problems. If you want, give us a call later and we'll give you today's update once people start coming back in. LOTS of really nice crappies came through the fish cleaning room last night and this morning!

Drake,

Sorry we didn't get to say goodbye last night. It was really late when we rolled through there and didn't see any lights on.

Just an update for you. Ice conditions were really good with 24 inches of ice in most places and the ice surface, once you got out a little from the accesses, was about the smoothest I've seen it all year.

We got a lot of nice fish with some of them just topping 14 inches. I will e-mail the photo of Tyler with his northern, not exactly sure how big it was, as we left the tape in the truck, but I would guess he was 38-40 inches. Tyler's face grin.gif. 11 years old and already experienced the trip of a lifetime.

So thanks again, and We will see you again this spring.

Thanks for the picture Paul~tell Tyler it's hanging in the office and the guys are already admiring it! Looks like the northern is nearly as big as Tyler smile.gif Loved his "thumbs up"..definitely a trip he will always remember. It's great when the kids are able to do well..the look on their faces says it all grin.gif

Hey Jiggle! Send the pics to us and I'll print em' out and put it up! What started out as a board is now also all around the board and starting on the next wall! Especially love the pic's of the kids smile.gif When you send it just let me know your young un's name (Jiggle Jr.?) as I like to put people's first names under it and something about the pic.

      well we finally got our home computer back so it sure is nice to be able to type again instead of using the phone.
      The wind were wicked Monday night but by the looks of it this side of the lake held together so that's real good news.
      Lonnie and his buddy braved the winds yesterday and headed out ,they managed to get 7 of there 8 but it was a tougher bite then last time they were here on Saturday.
      This weekend is going to be crazy up here as I have had quite a few inquirers about lodging on shore. Buddy Hillmen may have something but he is tough to get a hold of as he is busy building that mammoth house.
      We ran into a hiccup on blue thunder and have a part we can not get off to replace. I'm hoping Tom can come over and button it up. as Devon worked his butt off to get er done. You could see the disappointment in his eyes, Blue thunder is my work horse and I'm feeling the pressure of getting her up and running..
      Our new used lake truck may show up sunday if all goes well. Its name is Cheyanne "I think that's spelled right. It blew a radiator in fargo and is arriving on a trailer .
      Old Minnesota is the only house that I have not detailed as I also had some major work on her that was ignored while I was trying to break 80 at the golf course this summer. Every one have a great thanksgiving and if your coming up here make sure you check in the resort your going out of as they have been on the ice everyday

      I've got 6- 8" on my home lake. I've heard reports of 3" on Eastern side of Fish Lake from High Banks Resort-Blue Max.

      Idiots   I am heading up Friday I will be walking out don't have to go far for good fishing this early
    • ZachD
      If I remember right you used to have to get a license a while ago before they changed it to the if you occupied it rule. I don't think 14.33 a year is going to break anyones bank. Hopefully they use the extra money for stocking purposes
    • Fishing Frenzy
      Yeah looks like the 2nd weekend in December if we're lucky before you can ice fish this area. Going to be another late year on the ice.
    • PRO-V
      Next year you will have to buy one for wearing long underwear or pac boots.
    • fish_hunt_guy
      Love the reports Smuts. Looks like another great season. Keep it going!
    • slammer
      It just never ends in this state.  Tax, tax, tax.  Where does this money go?  Whats next?   A tag for your vehicle to drive on the ice?
    • leech~~
      Fun for some folks that went exploring early ice from a few years ago. 
    • tfin
      Hi Cookie,  a buddy and I are going up this weekend.  Will they bite much after dark or is the water too mucky this early.  I appreciate any info.  Thanks
