      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 .

Congrats Cliff. I am sure you will put them on fish. That goes for all. And for everyone else. Remember there will be lots of media coverage up there for the opener. Lets give a possitive image for them to capture. Less ammo for the people who do not like fishing. I also regret to say that I will not be up this year for opener frown.gif. I am getting married on 4/30 and will be gone on honeymoon from 5/2-5/9 and I am not going to be able to work for 3 days then take off for 5 more. Just not going to work. So everyone have fun.

Congrats, Cliff! I'm sure the LT. Gov. will have a great time with you. grin.gif

So does this mean that Doug will be taking the Gov. to the West End and you'll be on the East?

Or have they laid out some sort of plan for you all to follow so the media gets the footage that they want?

Good luck to everyone, see you on the second weekend... between the extra folks who'll be fishing and work, I'll be coming up on weekend 2 this year... cool.gif

Where are the Governor and his crew staying? I would think that would have something to do with where they fish.

The Governor will be staying at Fortune Bay but I doubt Doug will fish the east end, the people at the resort asscociation would have a major fit if all the fish came from the east end. grin.gif

I don't think anyone is suprised that they picked

Doug to take the Gov fishing. I'll be out fishing with the former state director of tourism. smile.gif

Good luck guys, see you at the casino.grin.gif

Seriously, I am so pumped for the opener already. Skipping work on Friday and plan on 8-10 hours of holdem at the 3 casinos on my way up there.

Way cool Doug, Cliff, Phil, Terry.

laugh.gif

Might be another season of fish going deep again after spwan due to no food up shallow eh?

smile.gif

No dock bite but fun in the holes.

Have to do our shore lunch thing next day instead of 2 AM and the Walleye dance fer sure.

Crunch time is ever so near, but yet so far away.

Way cool guys.

Congrates!

Doug has been guiding on Vermilion since about the mid 70's. His father in law is Gene Jenkins who has several decades of guiding on Vermilion under his belt. Doug and I grew up fishing together so I know he is good as I taught him well. LOL grin.gif

I'm sure Doug will put the Gov on some fish and I wouldn't bet that he is going to fish only the West end if at all.

Cliff - If you havn't talked with Doug yet you will soon as you guys will have to have some sort of game plan worked out.

Go ice Go!!!!!

John,

Go to the mndnr.org site and you should be able to get all of the info. that we have been given.

As I stated earlier, I am not generally in favor of slots!

But the data collected by the DNR on Lake Vermilion has convinced me that something has to be done before it is too late!

My advice to you on your lake would be to listen to the local DNR's advice. Not to any knee-jerk ideas that local clubs or outsiders think you should be doing!

Hope to see you at The Opener! smile.gif

Cliff

      Hi, I am selling my 2012 Polaris Ranger 800 XP camo. Very low miles, 1200. Full hard cab, flip out glass windshield, windshield wiper, almost like new still. Great for ice fishing, hunting and work around the house.  I also have this ad on C.L.  10,000 b/0 text me for pics, thanks.  I am located in west metro 763-two34-0837
    • partyonpine
      Any bass reports?  Have the walleyes been moving in shallow at night?  South wind I am guessing their is fish on the south side of pine? 24-32 feet sounds like right in front of the cabin.  Any in crawlers or have they transitioned to minnows.  Did well in 18 feet last weekend.  No matter what cannot wait for 3 solid days of fishing!!!
    • BisoNation
      1st time ever I've seen zebra mussels in ottertail on west side   this SUCKS!!!!   had a red solo cup in the water... apparently they love RED.     at least 5 of them    it sucks
    • Wanderer
      From someone who grew up as a back reeling aficionado, I've learned to appreciate a quality drag on a reel.  It's the one thing I'll gladly pay for. Modern drag systems are so much better than they used to be.  Not taking advantage of them is leaving a lot of the value of a quality reel on the table.  Unused and wasted. So, is that the kind of opinion you were looking for?   
    • slammer
      They are already established in OT.  Pulled docks at my sisters place with about 75% covered in zebes.  Wear shoes when your in the water.
    • Meterman
      I noticed this spring that the higher end Shimano Stradic and others have eliminated the ability to back reel (no reverse) which I believe is a huge mistake, I don't like it!    any others have comments?

      Been out chasing crappies again in the DL area..been a while...finding some nice ones in mouth of a river...pic of a couple

      Went up north grouse hunting it was fun. I must say having a dog makes it better.  This weekend is duck opener and I am jacked up for it. 
    • SkunkedAgain
      The public launch at The Landing on the west end stays open until the ice sets in, but they do pull the dock sometimes around the end of October / beginning of November.
