      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 .

Should I bring my TV?

I have a new 14ft shack with a TV/pop-up antennae and was wondering if I'm going to get any reception on the other side of Pine Island. Thanks for any responses...

Of course I'm going to be staring at my flasher all day, but at night it might be cool to watch a little tube.

This is a no brainer. I look forward to getting up there just so I dont have to see, listen, or even think about that TV set. Its like going 10 miles into the Boundry Waters and packing a CD player with you to listen to. Get my point. You can catch up on all the news and sports scores when you get back. For gods sakes spend all you energy jigging, BS'ing , drinking good whiskey, and taking fish off you hook not channel surfing. Enough said!

Just my thoughts grin.gif Enjoy it up there (LOW) some people may never get there!!!!

That is correct. I got you, the horse was dead after the first swing so I didn't have to keep beating it. Ha Ha Have a good X-mas Bturk and say high to Glen at the Riverbend from the Kuznia boys. Fishing has been great up there my dad just came back with great reports

Good luck and save a few for me!! grin.gif

If you plan on staying out on the lake at night a TV might not be a bad idea as channel surfing might be your only action.Not sure on the reception

Like I said, I'll be watching my flasher all day and probably having a few adult beverages here and there too. But I've been to LOW enough to know once it's dark, it's over (usually) until morning. People will tune in to check the news/weather etc. and that's what I wanted to know about. I don't understand French so maybe I'll just bring a couple DVDs. Thanks guys

If you have a crank up RV antenna you will get great reception. Most of the channels are either out of Duluth or Warroad. I have that style antenna and was just up there from 12/10-12/18 and stayed in my house and after dark it sure was nice to be able to watch the weather. The channels you will get will all be in the 50's, 60's, and higher. Good Luck and enjoy.

Well, it sounds like your going to be by yourself so why not pack the 12 volt VCR and a load of skin-flicks! Great way to pass the time if the fish aint' bitin'! You'll stay warm too!

      I used to have many fields but some guides came in and pay for the fields. I am down to 3 farms but they don't have any small grains this year. So I am going to take the early season off. As I know the geese will use some ponds to rest and I have access to them so I will wait until the regular season to pick off a few geese.

      get a guide for a day

      That's what I planned on doing while I bow hunted but wasn't sure since I got one in spring if I could get another. Thanks

      I was marking various things, but I didn't note a correlation between marking something and catching the walleye.  Also was catching smallies on the same reefs, although maybe at a little different depth.   In fact I was surprised when the walleye hit.  Likewise the other one the next evening.

      Eden prairie purgatory lake is full of carp. You can see them from the dock or the bridge.

          Orvis has some awesome tutorials on their web sites. They teach at whatever level you are in flyfishing. I've gone there many times. They've also got an awesome app with fishing reports including wwater conditions, fly selection and hw to fish it.       Check them out and good fishing.

      I didn't fish any walleye this weekend- only bass. I would fish Friday and Saturday mornings from 530-830 and caught half a dozen largies in the 3-4lb range on a spinner bait. I just got my Garmin fish finder with sideview which will hopefully help me better locate the walleyes. Del, were you marking fish as you'd go over them?

      Latest Landing gossip...... First hearing in trial was july 25th.   Judge took motions under advisement. In the mean time, since none of the locals would work there, they imported a bunch of people on H2b visas as seasonal workers and put them up in a little house in Cook.  Charging them $285 per month.  Like 20 people in the house.   Now many have quit and found other jobs, and some also found other places to live.   They have to hang on since they need to wait until their scheduled airplane tickets.. which they also had to pay for.   That's the news from the Laundromat.... Believe it or so what.
