      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 .

Does anyone have an idea when the DNR removes the marker bouys from Vermilion?

I don't think it is the DNR that puts those markers out, but the occasionally maligned Sportsman's Club of Lake Vermilion. If you aren't a member, you ought to be. They do a lot of good things for the lake.

Funny you should mention that. I was fishing there two weeks ago and when I was landing the boat at the end of the day there were a couple fellows from the Vermillion Sprotsmans' Club at the dock. Nice guys, talked to people about some of the nasty aquatic hitch hikers from other areas. I was impressed, they were out there because they wanted to protect the resource.

If you use common sense and stay a good distance from shore and islands you should be good. There a few out in open, water but they are really few. And right now I actually can't remember any. I really try to stay away from clusters of islands and such.

You should get yourself a good depth map of Vermilion. Study the areas you will be going, to highlight where the bouys WERE. There are definitely a few spots that would take off your lower unit!

I do have a map and there are only about 5 or 6 spots that I fish in the fall and I know safe routes to all of them. But that is a good tip for someone who is not sure of where they are going.

PO Box 456

Cook, MN 55723

Individual $10

Mr/Mrs $15

Family $29

Business or Organization $50

Shoulder patches $1

From the web site reached by way of lakevermilion (Contact Us Please)

Activities of the Club include annual water testing at many regular sites on the Lake, an annual loon count and providing the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources with assistance at both the walleye hatchery near Tower and the Northern Pike rearing pond at the Cook end. Boating and water safety have always been priorities for the Club. The Club maintains a navigational aid system that includes lights placed at strategic locations on the Lake to assist in night navigation and numbers many of the hazard buoys to correspond to official maps for that sometimes, temporarily confused boater. We also provide boating safety posters for resort cabins and docking areas. One of the Club's most project is one we have undertaken in partnership with the U.S. Forest Service and involves the development and maintenance of five day-use shore lunch sites on the lake.

Education is one of our major commitments. The Club, through its newsletter and web site, provides information on subjects like boating safety, native wildlife and a few fishing tips. We inform members of the dangers of introducing exotics like Eurasian milfoil, Zebra mussels, rusty crayfish and a whole host of other nasties. And we provide information about land use practices to prevent pollutants from entering our Lake. As an added way of advancing the educational mission of the club, we offer a scholarship at the end of each school year to a Tower or Cook high school senior whose college studies relate to conservation or the environment.

If you have a LakeMaster chip and a Lowrance GPS the hazards are well marked on that.

      Really no different than using your boat.  $14,000 fish house and $14.33/year is going to kill you?? What gets me is at the lake we are at in the summer, mostly out of state people in the campground and all of their boats, never leave that lake and they are all licensed out of state and not in MN.  That is a chunk of money the state does not see.

      Great news to hear! Hopefully it will make enough tonight and hope it isn't going to get as warm as they say. Fingers crossed!

      Was hoping to come up with a 1/2 ton and a 16ft wheel house Dec. 1st.  Any thoughts if the ice will be think enough to go out of Hillmens?

      Took a drive around Lake Osakis earlier. It appears the cold and calm winds we had last night made a lot of ice. From what I could tell it appeared the lake was locked up except there was a small open area in Manthey's Bay that had a couple trumpeter swans swimming around and another small area in front of Holiday Resort that had some ducks swimming around. The rest was all ice, thin ice. Don't know if it will hold up over the next 5 days. High of 38 tomorrow, 46 and showers on Friday with high winds, 36 Saturday, 44 Sunday and 44 Monday. The lows over night aren't going to dip very low. If it was a few inches thick I wouldn't be to concerned, but as thin as it is, could be bad.

      Not by itself it won't but they raised the price on licenses for everything. Once you add it all up I'll bet you never got that big of a raise at your job. I paid for an ATV license since they first came out and we didn't get squat for it for over 20 years. What a joke, not to mention debacles like Mille Lacs Lake management. AAARRGGHHH!!  I gotta quit now before I pop a vein.
    • JerkinLips
      Thanks for the updates.  Think I will play it safe and wait until Thursday, November 30 to go out from McKinley Park.

      7" of good clear ice in the couple holes I drilled in Pike Bay this morning.

      not sure why its not showing I'm posting? Anyway walking out on the south shore gets you in deeper water quicker. Yes they do bite on red lake during the dark. I hardly ever go on the lake early ice unless Buddy Hillmen needs my help. Once I drive on the lake with blue thunder I will be on her just about everyday un  tell mid march if mother nature cooperates.

      Can anyone recommend a place nearby the Metro Area where a person can take their air rifle to sight in the scope since you cannot shoot them in city limits.  Plus, probably not smart to just pull up to a random field to sight in, either.  Thanks!!

      Went out early Sunday on smaller lake before the Vikes game...5" of good ice and it was growling so making more before it warmed up. Caught a bunch...pic of the dozen crappies we kept...but it was fast and furious from 7-9am
