      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 .

Things to do and see in Waskish area? Trails?

Recommended Posts

BLACKJACK

Going to be camping at Rogers over the Memorial Day weekend, looking for some things
to do with the wife in between fishing or on
big wind days when we get blown off the lake (not worried about rainy days - thats tent
time smile.gif ).

Any ideas on interesting places
to see, any trails to hike? Was out to the URL website, they mentioned the proposed Big Bog state park, any trails developed yet? Any good birdwatching spots?

Any ideas would be appreciated. Looks like the fishing is picking up, getting pumped!!

Blackjack, excellent question for this section. I'd like to come up that way too sometimes but get the old "what's there to do up there besides fishing?" from the wife.

Any antique stores? Museums?

The only other thing is to let her off north of the lake and have her walk through the swamp all the way to Baudette.

That'll take a while.

Guess by all of these type replies you get the message. Best she likes to fish.!!

Oh, Anderson Fabrics in Blackduck used to offer tours of their facility...very interesting place.

BLACKJACK,
Check out the Shopping in Waskish Topic.
When you say rainy days are "tent days" that mean we should all come visit? smile.gif
If you ride ATV's there are a lot of places to ride.
For hiking 3 miles south of Waskish and just NE of the #72 and County 110 junction is high ground with a lot of small roads/trails to walk.
Check out the eagle nest across from Dad's driveway. The other day I thought I saw one of the little ones head as it was being fed but I am not sure.
If NINETOE is up it's fun to stop by his place about 8-9 in the morning and make a lot of noise. You'll get to hear a lot moaning and groaning if you can get him to start to wake up. grin.gif

Thanks for the replies guys. Kelly, I decided we're camping in a different spot because I'm counting on some 'rain' time!!! smile.gif Jiggle, thats an idea, but we're not the party animals that we used to be. Now I knew that I could get her drunk and horny, it would be an idea, but I'm afraid she'd just go to sleep on me.

Boat is hitched up, as soon as I get thru this little thing called work, we're on the road. I'm psyched! Crappie heaven, here we come!

      Well, I have to pay for registration on my boat trailer to run it on the road, and the boat to run it on the lake, why shouldn't wheel houses?  I guess I don't feel bad for the wheel house guys.

      No not yesterday. 2 weeks ago when we had that first cold spell I went out on Baxter, Blue and Long and checked the ice. They were locked up but only had 1-2" inches so didn't venture out too far. Baxter probably was walkable but had open water on the back end so figured I stay off. Last Sunday I went and checked them out after that warm rainy week we had and they had open water, so yesterday I skipped checking them and went farther north. But I did notice most lakes were locked up on the drive up there. Cant wait for the local lakes to get some decent ice!

      Wondering if big sandy is clear enough to spear fish when the ice comes on? Never done it before and would like to give it a try
    • monstermoose78
      Bryan did you check any lakes around me?
    • Bryan P
      Had to scratch the ice fishing itch, so I drove up north to the Mille Lacs lake area and found a smaller lake with 4-5" of ice. Punch a few holes and found some crappies and sunnies. Nothing big but was fun time and a great way to start my ice seaso n! Bring on the ice!  Check out the video: https://youtu.be/BTTv_G07PB8

      Hey, I resemble that remark!!   Plus my wife only went fishing with me once the whole time that we have been married and she brought a book! I got her trained in right away. Sorry about your training problem!
    • leech~~
      Ok but with all those Trout. Bring a tow rope as I may be stuck in the slush!
