      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 .

Has anyone brought their little boys or girls up to red and stayed in a sleeper for at least a two day trip. I'm taking my four and eight year old boys up to red for the youngest birthday and was looking for any suggestions on how to keep them Busy besides the usual snacks and movies -any advice would be greatly appreciated. I know it wont be a prob when the fish are on the bite but I know they wont be snapping for two days straight-Thanks

My grandsons are 7 and 10. A couple of board games, maybe, and above all else let 'em get outside with a ball.

If you're working to get them fired up on the fishing, then ya gotta take into account that maybe the fishing isn't what they'll remember most about the trip. grin.gif

Take 'em to West Winds for breakfast and eye the crappie mounts. cool.gif

Keep the window cracked open in the house and make sure ya got a barf bucket handy. crazy.gif

I take my two boys alot as well as my friend's kids when they come. Mine are 1 & 3 and the other kids that I have taken with are usually just a little older. Movies and snacks. Its a little work, and two days is enough for them. Let them scoop minnows from one bucket to another.

Minimite,

I recognize that house! No wonder my son (14 years old) kept dancing around in the house---he was hearing video games and they weren't quite meeting his daily dosage!! He was getting his "fix" it just wasn't quite enough to keep him in his seat.

Honest truth is he is a very good fisherman and really focuses but we had along his 16 year cousin who can get a bit "antsy" at times.

We played a game of Texas Hold-em during the evening as well just to take the focus off of the bobbers and graphs. Unfortunately our first 20 hours in the house were on the slow side but we did catch a nice northern and some slot walleyes so we stayed kind of busy. Next morning heated up a bit more and a few crappies hit the bucket and some more walleyes. Would have loved to see 15 crappies but 3 was more than any of us had caught before in that size range!

I really want to bring my boys 5&7 and maybe the wife up to URL. After hearing all the horror stories of bad sleepers my friends have come across through out the state. It just makes me really nervous. Frezzing without lights or bad fumes with kids really worries me. I really want to get them into a couple of slabs.

Contact Kelly or Jon Petrowske, you will have no worries in one of their sleepers. You may have to go during the week though cause I think all their weekends are booked up. Good luck.

I'm guessing that will have to be DNR number since the kids don't have drivers licenses. grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

Wouldn't Beltrami County need to give you a wetlands variance being it's on the lake? Though according to them, the lake is the driest part of the county! confused.gif hehehe

Good Luck!

      1st time ever I've seen zebra mussels in ottertail on west side   this SUCKS!!!!   had a red solo cup in the water... apparently they love RED.     at least 5 of them    it sucks

      From someone who grew up as a back reeling aficionado, I've learned to appreciate a quality drag on a reel.  It's the one thing I'll gladly pay for. Modern drag systems are so much better than they used to be.  Not taking advantage of them is leaving a lot of the value of a quality reel on the table.  Unused and wasted. So, is that the kind of opinion you were looking for?

      They are already established in OT.  Pulled docks at my sisters place with about 75% covered in zebes.  Wear shoes when your in the water.

      I noticed this spring that the higher end Shimano Stradic and others have eliminated the ability to back reel (no reverse) which I believe is a huge mistake, I don't like it!    any others have comments?

      Went up north grouse hunting it was fun. I must say having a dog makes it better.  This weekend is duck opener and I am jacked up for it.

      The public launch at The Landing on the west end stays open until the ice sets in, but they do pull the dock sometimes around the end of October / beginning of November.

      Just curious if people are finding fish moving into fall patterns yet or still finding them in more summer locations?  I've been finding good sized panfish in deeper water myself around more mid lake structure. Most of the lakes I've been on are still pretty green with algae and weeds.

      Captain Acorn, I use Gamagatu  octopus hooks. Size 4 for crawlers and size 2 for minnows. Red, black, chartreuse, and pink , mostly red and black. I use orange and green glow soft beads at times. (Worked today!) Cliff
