      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.

      I will check it out a little latter. It looks like a good idea. I do a small diamond wrap on a lot of my ice rods.

      I'm gonna go but not before some of these crops get harvested.  It may not be until Thanksgiving but at least I'll increase my odds if I wait for a better chance of success.

      I have not seen a bird during season yet but I will get one or two I hope

      Looks like you got one woodcock and a snipe but I could be wrong but great job shooting.

      i went out for a couple hours yesterday looking for grouse.  The buddy i was with never has been hunting for grouse or woodcock.  We only saw 1 grouse with no chance for a shot but got both woodcock that flushed.

      As MB said, high water tends to spread fish out and push them tighter to the banks in any slower water they can find.  A "normal" year with low water in October can be ridiculously, almost unfairly good in the river when you find the smallies. There's a reason it's mandatory catch and release now, as they pile up in deeper, slower water and can be quite vulnerable if/when you find them.   That being said, the difference in high vs. low water is not as pronounced above the dams (either the 10th St, Sartell, Little Falls, Blanchard, etc.) as it is below them.  At least in my experience, anyways.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has produced six new, state-of-the-art maps that will make it easier and safer for people to explore, hunt, and recreate in state forests.   “The DNR has updated six state forests with 53 more to go,” said Forrest Boe, director of the DNR Forestry Division. “This five-year effort will include updating maps for all of Minnesota’s state forests.” State forest users now have two maps options. A geoPDF map will allow users to download a map onto a mobile device using a variety of map apps and then track their location as a blue dot on the screen. The new user-friendly, paper maps highlight the unique recreation features of each forest and include pop-out maps for popular campgrounds and day-use areas. “The little blue dot that appears on the map on my phone goes with me whether I’m on or off-trail,” said Laura Duffey, DNR state forest map project coordinator. “This feature lets people know exactly where they are in a state forest—no more getting lost.” The maps are also more detailed than previous versions and highlight the endless recreation opportunities in state forests, such as hiking, mountain biking, birding, berry picking, cross-country skiing, hunting, and horseback, ATV and snowmobile riding. Many state forests also offer campgrounds, fishing piers, boat launches, swimming beaches, and picnic areas. The six new maps are available in time for fall hunting and cover more than 240,000 acres of state forest land and thousands of miles of trails. New geoPDF and paper maps are now available for: Paul Bunyan State Forest in Cass and Hubbard counties Badoura State Forest in Cass and Hubbard counties Croix State Forest in Pine County Huntersville State Forest in Cass, Hubbard and Wadena counties Lyons State Forest in Wadena County. Chengwatana State Forest in Pine and Chisago counties The Paul Bunyan and Badoura state forests are popular spots for hunters. Combined, they contain two campgrounds and day-use areas, four off-highway vehicle trails, five wildlife management areas (WMA), two ruffed grouse management areas, and four state game refuges. They also have hiking, biking, snowmobiling and skiing trails. The Huntersville and Lyons state forests are popular with hunters. Each state forest contains four WMAs and several miles of trails and roads for off-highway vehicles. Additionally, the Huntersville State Forest offers two campgrounds, a horse campground, and 24 miles of designated horse trails. The St. Croix State Forest offers a variety of year-round recreation opportunities. It has 20 miles of horseback trails and a horse campground with 56 campsites. In the winter snowmobilers can enjoy 42 miles of trails while in the summer mountain bikers can cruise 25 miles of trails. The Boulder Campground and day-use area has 22 secluded campsites and access to Rock Lake for swimming, fishing and boating. The Chengwatana State Forest contains the Snake River Campground and several miles of off-highway motorcycle and all-terrain vehicle trails. Three state water trails run through the forest: Kettle River, Snake River, and St. Croix River. Snowmobliers also use the Matthew Lourey State Trail, which runs through the forest. The new maps also shows locations of National Park Service campsites along the St. Croix River.Digital, geoPDF maps are available on the state forest’s webpage at www.mndnr.gov/stateforests. People can get a free paper map at a local DNR office or the DNR Info Center by sending an email to info.dnr@state.mn.us or calling 888-646-6367, Monday-Friday 8 a.m.-8 p.m. and Saturdays 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
