      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 .

If you go to the Hudec's website and click of the fishing reports it's full of reports saying how awful Hudec's is. Also full of smut. Doesn't look like it gets monitored.

It seems like some personal issues. Ive stayed there with no problems. The fishing in Jan is good any place on the lake.

Interesting stuff on that unregulated board.

I've fished out of Hudec's for three years. Don has been very gracious to me and my buddies.

I've never stayed in the rooms or in a fish house, but I wouldn't hesitate to make a reservation to do so. When you've got several thousand people going through your access every week, you're bound to get a few that find something to complain about.

Jjigstick; if you have time, could you send us an email about your posting on Red Lake, I, if not we, may have some thoughts for you about Red that you didnt know! kind of like who grew up there, the best guides, the keepers of the lake that have been hanging on , when everyone else gave up and moved on; even we new nothing till we started going there to find out what they went through all theses years, and they stuck it out; yes we went for the fish too, BUT; you know it wasnt just the fish ;, it was the people that brought us back; they come from all walks of life, and different places, I myself love fishing and so does Judy, but dam there is just a time to see these people and B.S the fishing is a darn good plus. any ?s just holler; there good people up there

Jjigstick,
If you are going fishing to have fun you will have fun. If you are expecting a bad time you will have a bad time. The choice is yours.
I have a pile of e-mails here directed at me that are worse then anything said about Hudec's on their forum. I look at them and realize that some people will never be able to lean back and enjoy a day of fishing. If you go fishing and everything works out great AND you catch fish awesome. grin.gif But if you go fishing and nothing goes right AND the fish don't bite,,,,,,,it still beats a day at work. smile.gif The choice is yours how your day will go, either enjoy the time away from "the real world" or carry the tension of the real world with you and ruin a day of fishing. The choice is there for each and every one of us. How our time fishing went is up to each of us whether to enjoy it or be mad about it.

Kelly,

Sorry about all those E-mails it was a screw up!! They were supose to go to my ex-girlfriend (REDHEAD). I don't know how they were sent to you instead!!

I met Labs4Me last month turns out he lives about 3 miles from me. Good guy! I heard the other side of the story about the rear ending last winter. Turns out you were wearing chains and slammed on your brakes and thats why you stopped so fast and he didn't!!!! It's always good to hear both sides of the stories!

Counting the days to start the crappie new year.

crappie getter,

Jigstick-I went to LOW last year and stayed at a resort that I had heard was not going to be a pleasant experience. By people that I did not know(A week before going!)It was the best we have ever done.Great fishing and accomodations.
I checked out that message board myself and I don't think I'd put too much stock in anything posted there.There were probably only two posts that sounded as if they had any decency to them.So just have fun and don't forget the Leinies.

By the way I have stayed at Hudecs a couple of times. In the rooms in their little motel always very nice people and very nice and clean rooms. I would not hesitate to stay again or advertise a place to stay.

crappie getter,
I didn't get all those e-mails you mentioned. BUMMER! frown.gif They could have been interesting. hehehehe
I think it's normal to slam on the brakes when if you don't someone in a white truck is going to slam into you from the left. shocked.gif I'm doing things different his year. This truck is so ugly that I'm gonna rent out spaces on it for people to slide into. Right front fender, $150. Left front, $250. A door will have to be $500 cause they keep the cold out. smile.gif
I'll see you the 5th.

      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.
