      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 was up last weekend closing up the cabin/dock (thanks again JKrash) and heard that a cabin burned down in the Frazer Bay area. Does anyone have any information on this? Where? How?

Thanks

PSU,

This summer I saw a cabin on fire that was located on the East side of Fectoe's Point. I don't know if it actually burned to the ground though.

I know they did a training burn on the lake about a month ago. Maybe a little longer than that even. Not sure where. My department didn't take part in it. Basically they stage a number of small room and contents burns (level 1) and practice putting them out and watching how the fire grows. Then, they will conduct a level 2 burn that involves more than 1 room/location in the structure. They eventually pull out of the house after the level 2 has grown so much that it isn't safe to have anyone inside and sit back and watch her burn. It's good training for the FD, because you really get a chance to watch the fire and how it acts instead of focusing on putting it out as soon as possible.

That fire was on Dodge Point,east arm off of Fectos. It was burned down on purpose,to build a new cabin and it was used for fire training. It's the same owner that built the large log cabin next door. I live two cabins to the east.Fishing was great last Sunday morning. Caught 12 walleyes, 6 jumbos and a 8 lb northern all on a Sonar (metal blade lure) in 30 plus feet of water..

I have never fished a sonar bait. I got about 6 of them handed down from my grandfather but I have never used them. How do you fish them? Are you trolling or vertical jigging?

I vertical jig them,I use 4/10 lb test Fireline and just lift and drop about 1 to 2 feet from the bottom. Keep a tight line as they hit on the drop many times. You really get a jolt with the no stretch line. I rarely use live bait in late fall anymore..
