      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 wanted to say hello and that i like the forum. A little about me, when i was ten my father took me to Leech Lake for a week fishing trip. It was the best time of my life. Now almost twenty two years latter I am taking him back to the same lodge on Leech lake the end of May beginning of June. I have a lot of questions on what kind of gear, tackle and clothing to bring along. I have alot of questions and have been trying to read previous posts so I dont waste anyones time going over old material. I am grateful in advance for any help and look forward to this forum. Thanks.

Welcome to the site and I am happy for you to find yourself back on the water sharing the fun with your little guy.

What you will find on the site are many different forums for which you can find information on.

Your first post is real general, so hard to decifier what you are exactly looking for (gear bags, jigs, rapalas, hooks,rods, reels,).

Take the time to really get to know the many different forums. When I'm fishing for Bass, I'll go to the Bass forum. If I'm planning on fishing crappies or walleyes-perch, I'll go into those specific forums.

As for geographical areas, the site breaks down the major watersheds or bigger lake destinations for you to surf and post in.

I think you will find that everyone here is more than willing to share information with you....except for that honey hole on their local lake.

Let us know what you are looking for and we'll help you out!

Hope you enjoy the site!

Sounds like a great trip you have coming up. There's nothing I'd rather do than the type of trip you have planned. I try to fit several in each year with my dad. We always have a great time mostly because we're doing somthing we love together. Check out the Leech lake forums especially the week before you head up for the most recent reports.

Also, Welcome to the site! laugh.gif

SAR5, Welcome aboard. Your a good son.

Visit the Leech lake forum for locations and presentations that work for that time of year and check with your resort just prior to your trip.

As far as clothing, Could be shorts and T-shirt weather or it could be snowing. The breathable rain gear doubles as a shell to cut the wind, use fleece for insulating layers.

Welcome to the site SAR5.

You are doing the right thing by checking out the older posts. There is a lot of good information already found here. But don't be afraid to ask something dumb either?? Some topics haven't been touched on in awhile and could be a good refresher for everybody.

      ripped out some old boards that were well past their prime on my boat.  Any recomendations on what to replace them with?  They looked to be treated plywood but wondering if getting something different would work better.  Such as a piece of 1 x 12 pine and throwing a few coats of polyurethane on it as well?  The boards I am talking about are for the benches.   Also, replacing the seats in there as well.  Previous i had the the vinyl foam seats.  When shopping around i am seeing a lot of the molded plastics chairs.  Any preference out there for durability?  Vinyl rips but wondering if the molded crack or break?   Thanks for any feed back!

      The flocks of geese are now flying over my house in the morning and evening, but when this happens Finn gets all jacked up. Like right now he is nudging me and running pawing at the window. A few minutes earlier when the first gaggle few over I was going to change the laundry and Finn raced down and sat by gun safe  whining.  Fishing reports have been great for crappies on the area lakes. Walleyes are not biting as well in lakes but when the rum is clearer that is the place to be. Bears any no quota hunters this might be your year to get a bear around here.  Deer seem to every where drive carefull.  Seeing some ducks flying around.  I have seen a few grouse and pheasants.

      I've been by a time or two trying to figure out which place is yours.   I was out on wakemup last night too.   Got nothing, on crawlers.  Started out at merry go round, went to "picnic island" (little island east/south of taylors).  rigged along edge of those two humps in like 18-25 feet.   Musky guys were coming so I turned.  They turned too, chunking baits in the vicinity of my boat.   Then some guys in a pontoon pulled up and anchored in front of me  and threw out bobbers.   Fished a while longer, and it was getting sort of dark so went home.   Weird.  I've been on those humps a bunch of times this year, and suddenly I get company.   And, even though it is a pretty big area they gravitated to where I was.  I'll be out today too, so if you need help with supervision, let me know.    But I will drive by to check out the new construction.

      Been getting a few on the weed line, early am when there's a little breeze, since the surface temps started coming down. That was about this month's full moon, for me. A very slow troll, fishing vertically, & just a 1/16 oz. jig.

      Neighbor and I went out in Wakemup for a couple hours tonight and got a 18" and 19" and had a nice one come unbutton on the way in....Leaches and crawlers.  That's good for me!  20 - 34' off a break line.  Del, working on the last flight of the steps-was looking for you to stop by and help!
