      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 .

I am looking for a hotel or resort to stay at during Dec.27-Dec.29 but realize most places are booked already. So I am wondering if anybody knows of a place with reservations still open.

You might want to give a call to the Lake Road Lodge Motel. they are on 172 just before Wheelers Point. They might be able to help you out. Close to the lake. Otherwise my only suggestion is to click on the resort locator above, go to Lake of Woods on the right side menu and make some calls. Hope you find a spot. Good luck, hang on. Bill

I made resevations at the Lakeroad Lodge 2 weeks ago for the 28th and 29th and they were filled up after my reservations though. I would call around to all the resorts to see what you can find. There are alot more reasonable, more professional, and more curtious places to stay in the area. We were desperate.

Minaki,

You could call The Royal Dutchman. I've never stayed there but I've talked to them about accomodations a couple times and they have always been very professional to deal with. A lot of other folks on the forum also have spoken well of them. If you are extremely desperate, the Baudette Motel might have room although there are better people to deal with up there. Have you called American Inn and Walleye Inn. It might be a little late but you never know. I often stay at a motel in town and then just rent a day house with transportation on and off the ice from one of the resorts.We are staying at Walleye Inn the 26th through 29th and fishing with Ballards the 27th and 28th. Good luck.

Eastwind - Are we still on for a cold one on the 28th? We're bringing all of our gear to do some sunrise/sunset action too, so we'll be staying at Morris Point and using their houses during the day and "pork and bean" fishing the low light hours. cool.gif

Gonzo,

Oh yeah. I plan to call you on your cell whem we get off of the ice on the 28th. I may touch base with you sooner to see how the fishing is where you guys are. I will have my phone with me on the ice. Will you have yours? As far as bringing portables along for night fishing, won't you catch just as much if you just stay in the lodge and concentrate on heavy consumption?? tongue.gif

I'll have my cell. BTW We'll have radios too, and may be able to connect that way if your group has some.

We're not really doing night fishing, more like twilight AM and PM. Of course, the "limit" we catch in the lodge after dark will determine how early AM is! crazy.gif

That "limit" Like so many others in my time, has also been lowered, and I can't blame the DNR for that!

      Jeez no. I can barely remember the netting discussion, let alone which side that I was arguing! Yup, you can see us cruising past quite often probably intent on satisfying the little one's quest for some ice cream at Moosebirds. She loves Sue and Ron. I'll definitely wave or stop by if I see you. I'll be up the next two weekends.

      How do you guys like to fish the west end as we transition into September and early fall? My next planned time at the cabin will be Labor day, I'm sure it'll be plenty busy on the lake but hoping to find a few quiet spots in the mornings and evenings to do some walleye fishing.

      Plus+1  The size seems to drop off late in the year. Last year bait shops I went to were selling Large as Jumbos and small as large!

      Reminder, meeting tonight at 7:00pm in Annandale and written comment period runs til August 28th. The email addresses for comment are on pages 18-19. Comment now or the days of fishing your favorite lake anytime you want, will be over! I’m sure this is coming to a county near you if this goes thru out here.

      Not uncommon at all for this time of year.  I used to try and find some regularly around Labor Day and always ran into problems.  I think its just the nature of the bait business.

      Does anyone know where I can get some jumbo leeches between the Twin Cities and Mille Lacs?  I would even settle for large.  There seems to be a shortage of supply. Thanks!

      Our prayers were answered from the south with some river flow. For now the river is back to easier and safer boating so we can get around.
        The catfishing has held steady, same as the past two weeks. The fish have moved to the shallow off current sides of the river since the nights have recently become cooler.  Sits have become longer to 25-35 minutes per spot to allow the fish to find the bait.  Mid-Day don't be afraid to find some current or move back to the middle to see if the fish have moved out to feed.
        Bait has been frozen suckers and frogs.  All other baits just don't seem to have the same effectiveness.
        We are entering into some transitions to fall and things will be changing over the next week or two.  The new flow should get the fish moving a bit more and that fall feed should ramp up over the next couple weeks.

      Also check for water in the fuel filter. At higher rpms water droplets travel to carbs and causes poor combustion. Happened to me some years ago. Had to drain water out of tank.

      Skunked, It was nice meeting you.  I've seen you,  your wife and little one a few times, but you never waved-thought you might be mad at me after we had a little debate on netting.  Sounds like were good!  Stop by if you see me on the dock.  That was my wife and sister in-law assembling the bench. That pinch area on the river is tight and some folks tend to fly right thru.  Also, people fishing on that dock in the pinch down area in the spring, don't like to reel in their bobber when you try to navigate through the boats in the spring.  I used the fish the St Louis River a lot and fellow fisherman were terrible flying by you.  I too follow the no-wake policy when going through tight areas.

      Yep, done for the year.  Not much for heat or insulation in the cabin.  It's a real, honest to goodness cabin.   So, as of Thursday, adios.  Until next year, etc.
