      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 just put an offer in on a house in Glyndon. I dont close till the middle of March, so I guess I am thinking ahead... -What are some of the closer lakes to the area that are good to wet a line in?

I have a Cabin just north of Little Falls that I fish at just about every weekend in the summer & I keep a shack on it in the winter, but it would be nice to find a good place for after work and "sick" days.

Thanks!

Welcome to Glyndon! There are a few of us from Glyndon that actively monitor this forum. If you want, get ahold of me and I can take you or direct you to a couple spots. I find that I personally have better fishing success in the winter than I do in the summer. So I am sure you can get good advice from others for the summer spots. What type of fish do you like to hunt? There are quite a few lakes within a 1/2-1 hour drive from Glyndon.

Again, welcome to the area.

I to am from Glyndon and have fished many hours with the Ice l0rd. Welcome. The main thing to remember when fishing in Becker or Otter Tail county is that these lakes are considered clear water lakes. Low light fishing conditions with the right weather produce the best in my opinion. I have a trailer on Rush Lake in east Otter Tail County. This lake is part of the Otter tail river system and can be hot and cold all in the same day. I like Pelican for the hard water. Good Luck

There are many lakes in the DL area; what type of fish will you be chasing? That will make a difference as to the suggestions you get. On a side note, if you need any assistance in financing your home, or to see if who you are currently working with is giving you a good deal, I'd be more than happy to help. I'll be sure to give you the FishingMN discount laugh.gif.

Welcome to Glyndon. As the other guys have stated you have many lakes to choose from all within a 1 hr drive. We have the bass/panfish lakes, classic walleye lakes with lots of structure to fish, and even a few musky lakes. It all depends on what you like to fish for. BTW dont forget the river systems in the area. The Red can and does produce some good fishing, as does the Buffalo River and both are right at your back door.

Fisherdog, I wish I would have known about your offer sooner, as we just did a refinance. I could have put that $400 towards a new gun or something.

Thanks for the warm welcome! I am pretty excited to make the move. It is nice to hear that there are a good number of avid fishermen in the area...

We have a cabin over on Lake Alexander (15min north of Little Falls). I do a bunch of muskie and eye fishing there in the summer. I am originally from Lake Minnetonka where the Bass fishing is awsome and the muskie bite has been good for the past five years or so.

In the winter I usually try to track down the crapps and eyes. But beggers cant be choosers! I am just excited to explore some new lakes in the area. I will be sure to keep an eye on this website to stay up to date. Glyndon is a pretty small town, so chances are some us may run into eachother. Thanks!

Oh yeah.. another question..

I notice that there are about 5 million sled tracks in the town and heading to Buffalo River. Does that river get a lot of guys riding it in the winter? Are there any trail systems that are near by?

I don't think the river gets ridden a whole lot. There is a groomed trail system that runs right around the town and neighboring towns. There also is a snowmobile club that meets right in Glyndon once a month at the fire hall. They are the ones that maintain the trails, if you a an avid snowmobiler, you may want to think about joining.

Welcome, my Brother.

I am from an infamous town just 10 miles from you called Hawley-wood.

In Hawley we have good Lefse, a mayor that breaks into people's homes and stabs knives in the walls, a former police chief that liked his beer and a turtle burner just to name a few. Other than that we are pretty good folks around here.

Glad to have another fisher-fella in the area.

      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.

      Bought a couple of baitcaster reels..my first....Lew's BB1 speed spool and Daiwa Tatula CT R. After about two weeks of daily practice casting in the river behind our house....lots of backlashes(birds nests)...I gotta say, I've come to love casting with these reels....much more accurate than my spinning reels. Any other baitcasting fans out there?  If so, what do you use?

      On the lighter side, I am 'SpoonBillSlayer' on that other site. For whatever reason years ago when I joined these sites I used two different userids. Both odd duck names that fit an odd duck! I just wanted to get the new updates out on this mess, it just seems like the only people being notified of it are those in  lake assoc's.  We'll see what happens.

      I've massaged the trigger finger this summer by shooting the sporting clays league at Rice Creek.  Good way to make sure I got out! Started a little rough as to be expected but got back the groove toward the end.  Finished the summer at a charity shoot with 39/40.  That felt good.

      Through a federal grant from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources’ has awarded more than $450,000 in local grants to protect and enhance inland coastal resources. The annual grant program is managed by the Minnesota’s Lake Superior Coastal Program, which is a voluntary federal-state partnership distributing federal dollars to projects along the inland coast of Lake Superior. This year, grant funding is being awarded to nine projects in the coastal area: Researchers at the University of Minnesota will monitor and analyze measures designed to reduce erosion of bluffs adjacent to North Shore streams. Results will inform guidance on design criteria for future projects. $35,900. The Arrowhead Regional Development Commission will conduct an economic impact assessment of paved trails within the coastal area; determine the number of users of four popular trails (Duluth Lakewalk, Willard Munger State Trail, Gitchi-Gami State Trail, and St. Louis River Trail), and simultaneously conduct large-scale survey of trail-user habits and impacts on coastal economy. $11,500. Laurentian Resource Conservation and Development is planning to host a two-day conference for academia and coastal managers to bridge a gap between research results and practices of watershed assessment, protection and stream restoration. $23,000. Researchers at the University of Minnesota will increase scientific understanding of success rates of coastal forest seeds. Results will inform coastal managers for improved adaptive management and help determination whether coastal trees should be protected and treated as a unique seed collection zone. $98,875. Duluth Children’s Museum in collaboration with Positive Energy Outdoors will create a year round, innovative outdoor science, technology, engineering, and math active learning experience for children, particularly those in low-income households with limited access. $33,100. University of Minnesota Duluth – Natural Resources Research Institute and several partners will develop protocols for assessing the biomass of periphyton (algae attached to rocks) in Duluth area trout streams for use by professional aquatic and citizen scientists. $77,440. City of Duluth will improve public safety and access to the St. Louis River estuary through upgraded wayfinding signage and amenities on the Western Waterfront Trail.  $89,080. Lake County will develop engineering designs and construct trailhead for Lake County Mountain Bike Trail System, a planned 100-plus mile mountain bike trail system. connecting both beginner and advanced cyclists to nature and physical activity in the coastal area. $70,000. City of Carlton will replace an outdoor restroom facility at the Willard Munger trailhead in city of Carlton. The updated structure will meet current sewer requirements and meet compliance with Americans with Disabilities Act. $11,225. For 18 years, the DNR and NOAA have worked together to better Minnesota’s inland coast. Together, the agencies have granted $12.6 million in pass-through funding to more than 550 local projects and provided thousands of hours of technical assistance. Projects are selected for funding through an annual competitive grants process. For more information about Minnesota’s Lake Superior Coastal Program, visit www.mndnr.gov/mlscp.

      Second the guide.  Fishing a lake in the north is totally different from fishing Mississippi or lake Zumbro or other lakes in the southern half of the state.  Otherwise you should look at the best place to launch your boat to be close to good fishing.  Rainy is a very big lake.. Ask in http://fishingminnesota.com/forums/forum/98-rainy-lake-fishing-reports-hunting-events/ the rainy lake forum.

      Unless they find a way to stop all the kinds of waterfowl from swimming, diving, eating and pooping from lake to lake. It's never going away.
