      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 having a hard time trying to choose witch resort to choose for a midweek fishing trip with my wife. I would like to know which ones are the best. I want to have all meals provided and houses with bait and everything. I have to be able to keep her on the fish for the most part or it would be a long ride home!

cool.gif Any ideas would be great! Also this is my 1st time up there and need to knw what to bring as far a tackle. Thanks again

My boys and I always go to Sportsman's Lodge, they have a good package that includes almost everything. We are going up on 12/30.

I agree with mercman, the food package is excellent. They even clean your fish for you included as part of their package. Kind of spendy, good luck getting reservations though, some people book a year in advance! That goes for just about any resort at LOW, make your reservations early.

As far as tackle, any type of jigging spoon will work.

Flashy gold is good, and so are glow jigs. Angel Eyes and Chubby Darters have been hot lately. Stop at a bait/tackle shop in the Baudette area and they'll set you up.

We stay at and have for the past six years at Riverbend. My wife comes up once a year with me, between my other trips. Last year was her first time on the big pond and she caught lots of fish and had a great time. They have reasonable prices, and do everything they can to get you on fish. Her and I are headed back Jan 17-19 and she is most anxious. I would certainly start to call as soon as possible for a place to stay. Hope you have a great time. Good luck, hang on. Bill

Over the years, I've been to just about every resort you can name on LOW. My personal opinion for complete winter fishing packages (in no particular order)are Riverbend, Adrians, Wigwam, Long Point Resort, and Sportsmans. And to be quite honest, none that I recall were horrible. Bear in mind, winter fishing is not as easy for the resorts to move you around to find fish if they are not biting. They should check on you a few times throughout the day, and if you want to move, just ask them. I would suggest you stick it out in one spot the first day, because a dead morning can turn into the best afternoon you've ever had. Good luck to all, have a great holiday, and safe trip up here.

      F.H., Fish deep and slow with lindys or jigs with minnows. Sometimes smaller minnows will work best at other times large suckers or shiners will get more hits. Cliff

      I'll venture a guess and say 1st weekend of December we'll have a good 4" to walk on.  Then it will continue to freeze to at least 12" before it gets snowed on

      I have the above motor that I use for duck hunting. When the temperature gets into the 30s (like this coming weekend), it can sometimes get stuck in either forward or reverse if it kills at low idle. In the 2nd picture, the throttle is open slightly. The curve part is attached to the shifter. It is in forward. If the motor dies and I close the throttle, the shifter can't be put into neutral (it needs to move up) because the it is blocked by the part above it. I need to take the top off and manually move the throttle closed (to the left) like the 1st picture. I think there is some grease that lubricates the throttle as it rotates under the flywheel. When cold, the grease is thick and sticks. Is there any lubricant I can spray up in the area that the throttle rotates? I'm hesitant to do so because of the electrical components in the area.

      Coming up this weekend with a friend of mine, even though the weather looks terrible. Any advice for how to catch them when mother nature brings the hammer down?  Highs in the mid 30's, lows in the low 20's.   On Friday I had a muskie in the upper 40s hit a 19 1/2" walleye.  As usual she let go at boatside, but it was fun while it lasted.
