      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 .

We have our two deer cut up, meat all boned out. The place we used to go to is closed. Can anyone recommend a butcher shop in the Elk River area that is reasonably priced and will make sausage, sticks and brats for our venison? Thanks.

Not Elk River, but not to far away is Mark's Meats in Circle Pines... they do an awesome job! I live in the S/E metro and made the drive up there to have my sausage made in past years. I do most of it myself now, but may have them do my sticks still, as their's are very good! so is their summer, italian, and smoked brats.

Good Luck!

Ken

I've been using Anoka Meats the last couple of years and some of their stuff is great. We love their breakfast links probably the most. Sticks are good but not the best I've had, summer sausage alright by my standards but my brother-in-law has a place he prefers for those.

They do a great job on my burger as well. I also think their brats are really good and I tried their Italian Sausage in a stew this week (my buddies sausage) and it was very good.

Von Hanson's is good and they are all over the North Metro. I picked up my sticks last night and I believe that the old Mark's Meats in now owned by Von Hanson's as well.

I recommend the hot pepperoni sticks either with or without the jalapeno cheese. Both are outstanding if you like a little kick in your sticks.

Von Hansens in Elk River has been good, and A-1 meats in maple lake, also has done great work for me with sausage, and smoked brats.

Are you implying Elk River Meats on Main St is Closed? Say it ain't so! They've always done great summer suasage and sticks for me.

I always use Steffens meats in Albertville. They always do a good job and aren't bad on the wallet either. Hopefully I'll be dropping some off there in a couple weeks. ( My season opens on the 18th-3b)

I hear Osseo Meat's does a good job.

And "Mark's Meats" was purchased by Von Hanson's(Mark got cancer and passed away) and is called "Circle Pines Sausage Haus". If they use Mark's recipes, I can guarantee everything will be quite tasty.

I have had good luck with both Steffens Meats (Albertville) and Osseo Meats.

      Went and tried a new spot... 3 snacky cats. One of them took my rod straight into the river and I had to dive in after it. Good times.

      I use the Daiwa ct r also have 2 of them best out there in my opinion.
    • FishinCT
      Pretty good for me from Monday through Wednesday. Found them from 14-24ft depending on the spot but most fish came from under 20ft. Trust the electronics and motor around til you find a good school. They are hitting pretty well when you find them

      Best wishes for a happy retirement Ace.   I could never have done the guide thing even if I were a good enough fisherman.   It takes a special type of person to deal with all the different people... Congratulations on a job well done.

      Terry, Sorry to hear that you have to retire after all of these years! I suppose It will be my turn to join you and Tommy before to many years also. See you on the water!! Cliff

      Congratulations on job well done sir. Your deserve time for yerself with Sandra an the whole younger crew. You have always been nice to me an a big help when I first seriously did the Muskie fish guide deal back summer 1996. We have had some fun times laughing online an in each other's boat over the years. Even boated a fish or three an coined a few major phrases still used in today's ever so silly online Muskie fish market.  Good stuff that I think only you n I could muster up and never take any of it seriously. Truely makes me smile clear to my middle all the junk we talked about an did. You are a good man Terry and welcome in my boat any time. Anytime. Ya done good and will not soon be forgotten. Thanks for being my friend on or off the water. The name fits as you really have been "The Ace"on our sweet Vermilion.   Still no fish round my docks but Bonnie, Polar Bear Boy an myself always have enjoyed your company. Yer the best in many ways my friend.  Thanks. Keep on Rocken!   Tommy.       PS.    I will continue to keep the Zombie Horde in check.    ; )

      I hope you enjoy your retirement!

      Keep the reports coming Curt, much appreciated.  Unfortunately, I'm not able to get back up there until September 22-25th., so it going to be tough keeping my mind on work and not LOW.  Are you just moving around in the basin until you mark a school of fish, and then jigging them?  I see all of your waypoints on the screen you showed, so those must be spots that have held fish at one time.

      Hey everybody, I have my last two guide trips on the 22nd and 23rd of August. A bad back and old age have taken their toll and I will retire from a job I have loved to do for the last 27 years.  I still enjoy it but unfortunately my body just can't take the pounding anymore. I'll still be out there fishing but no longer on a daily basis. I will miss all the regular clients I have had over the years and all the new people I have met that I can call my friends. Thanks to all of you that have shared the boat with me over the years, I hope you all had a good time. "Ace"   "It's just fishing man"
