      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 .

No real Chinese buffets or BBQ that I can think of. Khan's Mongolian BBQ is a mix of both, I suppose. I've never tried it. For family dining, the West 40 is outstanding (and reasonable) for breakfast. I've never had lunch or dinner there. I like the Schwartzwald downtown for German food for dinner. Royal Bar next door has great burgers and sandwiches, but not the best for kids.

Rocky's pizza has great pizza and is a good place for kids. The aforementioned Companero's is also great for Mexican. Go early on weekends because the lines are long.

<lol> Thanks Scott. Love the Royal's burgers. (Just the wife and me, so being a bar is OK...) Used to go to the DIXIE drive in for their burgers/malts(mmmmmmmmmm), but they aren't there any more (I hear).

Will just have to "fish around" for some good places to eat. Any Chinese buffets and/or BBQ in Menahga, Nevis, Akeley, Walker, surrounding townw/etc?

If you want a really good breakfast go to the Rapid River Logging Camp north of Park Rapids. Their dinners are also very good. For pizza try Rocky's at the intersection of 71, and 34.

Breakfast at the logging camp....after that all you want to do is take a nap.

My favorite was the Dorset Cafe, great chicken, nice little salad bar and draft beer came in icy mugs.

But I haven't been there in a while.

For pizza we used to go to Rocky's and a little place in Nevis, called, Steve & Jills Steak and Pizza. grin.gifwink.gifcool.gif

Companero's is always my favorite spot to hit...good Mexican food and good margaritas are tough to beat...

Rocky's and Zorbaz both have good pizza...Zorbaz is one of my favorite late night hangouts if you are looking to drink

Since guys are telling you to go to DL I'll say just head to the Toad Lake Store and get a burger. Taco tuesday is good as well. Nice people good food and cold drinks. Also the Y steakhouse is a nice place with excellent steaks. Little pricey but it's good food.

      Any new ice reports?  Looking For s something about Nicholas or strand

      what if you pull a wheel house to Mn from out of state or are a non resident?
    • Hoey
      I am noodling this same concept over.  I am thinking either a dedicated (portable) battery, since I may be pulling on shore to the ice with the 4-wheeler or a hand, boat-type winch, not always hooked up to the truck.

      Wow that is great to know.  Thanks for sharing.  Nothing like learning the laws from a CO on the lake.
    • birdguy
      Per the DNR news release dated November 20th:  “Wheeled fish houses, which formerly were considered portable – and thus excluded from licensing requirements for shelters – will now need to be licensed,” said Al Stevens, fisheries survey and systems consultant with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. “In the past, anglers using wheelhouses could use them without shelter licenses as long as they were occupied, including overnight.” The change pursued by the DNR and enabled by 2017 legislation accompanied hunting and angling fee increases. An annual resident shelter license is $16. A three-year license is $43. Owners of houses to be rented pay $31 annually or $88 for a three-year license. A valid license tag must be attached to the outside of the fish house in a readily visible location. ~~~~~ Any ideas on how to go about attaching them since they're no longer stickers like they used to be? Apparently you can't put them inside in a window facing out per the 'outside' requirement of the law.

      so here’s the scoop , as most fishermen know most of the resorts up here started letting wheeler and sleds out on the lake last weekend. That does not mean you can go any where you want as the winds have shifted the ice a couple times and opened up a few cracks . Check with the resort you access and stay in the areas that have been checked out.
      The fishing has been pretty good.
      I have had a few projects that were put off untell I got laid off from the golf course and mother nature again made my projects more challenging. I’m making progress slow and steady and maybe this time I have learned my lesson not to put these off when its 70 and sunny. Chasing breaking 80 at the golf course has got me processed.
      From the looks of it there a good chance we will have all our sleepers on the lake by the 7th of dec.
      My plans are again to go out of Hillmens resort and help Buddy hillmen with his road. He has built a 2 story house that may or may not be on the lake as its huge, I think it can sleep 8 to 10. Its crazy big 14 by 28.

      I appreciate the feedback. We love being out on the ice, so we'll keep plugging away.  Good luck to all this winter and be safe out there!

      I seen in the  paper it will be at Leech lake again this year.

      I was worried about the wire size too. Thanks ProV. I guess I can’t avoid it.
