      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 .

Just spreading as much info as I can. My family and I lost our toy poodle Friday night 7/12. We stopped to pick up mom at the Douglas County hospital, and she jumped out of the car...unbeknownst to us. It was about 10:30-10:45pm....we drove home and finally noticed she was missing. A call to the hospital confirmed she was left behind, and was seen near the back parking lot. I returned to search...looking for her until luck. We received a report that she was sighted along south Broadway near the Video store close to midnight....someone had pulled over and was trying to coax her to their car, and away from the road. We're hoping this someone picked her up, and kept her safe over the weekend...and will return her. She's about two and a half years old. Black, toy poodle...wearing a pink collar with rhinestones. (yeah, muskie bait!...but a great fishing companion!)

We miss her....

If anyone was in that area friday night, or has seen a lost poodle wandering around, or knows of someone who found a lost dog....please let us 808-5248...there is a reward.

Ghotierman, sorry to hear about the dog. Hopefully he shows up soon, probably a good idea to keep your eyes on the animal shelter in town. Keep us posted. I've got a question for you and any of the other readers, I've been following a post on the Brainerd Area board called "Toad, did you give it a try yet". If you haven't read it I highly recommend it, some interesting reading regarding open water trolling, planer boards, ect. I've been experimenting myself the last couple of years on Miltona with the open water trolling for both walleye and musky but haven't had a lot of success yet. I'm just wondering if any of you have spent much time honing these techniques with any success on the Alex area lakes? Although I haven't had much success with it yet, it seems like a technique that holds a ton of potential. Any input would be appreciated.

That was a great string of posts to read. I read through the better part of them and if reading is beleiving then there is a Ton of potential in this way of fishing, guess i never really bothered to fish out in the middle but if you think about it it makes complete sense, bait fish 20 feet down of course there has to be predators near by looking for dinner. This is definetly a tachnique that i intend to work on, heck i'll try anything especially if it produces fish.

      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.

      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

      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.

      Next year you will have to buy one for wearing long underwear or pac boots.

      Love the reports Smuts. Looks like another great season. Keep it going!

      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?

      Fun for some folks that went exploring early ice from a few years ago.

      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
