      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 .

For anyone who wants to take a very close up look, you can right click image and save to windows photo gallery and zoom in to were ever you want. I figure old timers would love to see. The contours of the lake are crazy, but if you fished back then you may remember a old name to a bar of reef. Also the resort names and old phone #'s are on her also. My grandpa loves looking at it. Reminds him of the old days. I have a bunch of old lake maps like this. I have leech from 66,Cass from 68 and a couple more.

Wow, I'd never fish mille lacs if I looked at a map and seen that's what the structure looked like. I'm guessing alot of those resorts were bought out to make way for houses and cabins?

Todays maps are much better and this old map is way off scale. The reason I took a picture of the west side is to show how many resorts are gone or bought out by the Mill Lacs band of ojiaway (spelled wrong). Just neat to look at if you grew up on Mill lacs or fished it alot in the old days.

That is cool... What you should consider is looking at making color copies of it and selling them. I would buy one. I would frame it and possibly put it up on the fish house wall or in my office. A lot people would get a kick out of it when they visit.

Its rare. I will try to maybe get color copies, good idea.

Were would you go to get that done. I can e-mail copies so you can zoom in and see very clear old names,phone #'s,reef's and bars. I look at all the time and find somehting new. I own 10 plus maps of Mill Lacs, but this is the rarest and most favorite one. E-mail me at Shackbash@aol.com and I will send you a better photo If you want.

What size is the map? I work for a printing company, I could possibly scan it and digitally print it.

Shackbash: That is really interesting. I fished during those days with my dad and a couple of uncles on the west side out of Shortys and later Zaskes resort. If you can get some printed I would certainly buy one from you for old times sake. Thanks for sharing. Bill

For copies you could try a local staples or any business supply store that offers copying, you will most likely have to do it your self because they are really cautious about copyright infringement.

A good place to get the scanning done of big prints like this is at Albinson Reprographics or Kinko's . They are both in St. Cloud and some other bigger towns I believe. They will either put it on a disk for you or email it..... COOL!! I would like to get my hands on one as well..

I'd be interested too.

Look at the detail on that baby compared with today's Lakemaster maps. We've come a long way with technology, right or wrong.

Mill laces band of Ojibaway (spelt wrong) bought out Roll in years ago. I used to go up their in fall with my grandpa and fish shallow for eye's. He stated that eyes would come shallow in fall to eat frogs as they burrowed in mud for winter. We never did catch much but we had fun. Roll in Lodge was a great place. It hurt me when they changed it. Still working on maps, have saved all e-mails and will return notification when they are ready. Thanks everyone!

I have been snowmobiling all weekend and just got home. I am very sore! thanks again!

      My rod bag with 5 rods in it fell off my sled while walking out from the public access on Sat. afternoon.
      I didn't notice until I had walked out to a spot and drilled some holes and started to get set up to fish.
      By the time I walked back to shore the bag had been picked up.


      Please let me know if you have any info.
      Thank you,

      Looked like a good time guys. Wish i could have been there unfortunatly i had to work. I hope i can make the next one.

      Got out Saturday afternoon and after putting in some time drilling holes finally found panfish in 20-24 ft, almost in the basin areas I'd look mid winter.  Crappie and sunfish were mixed and we caught almost all of our fish on a small jig and waxworm.  Tried minnows and only caught a couple fish that way, even when we were catching fish on waxworms in a hole 3 ft away.  They seemed to want something to chase so keeping the jig moving and pulling away from them helped quite a bit.  Had 10" of ice where we were fishing and was pretty consistent, but there's lots of reports of extremely varying ice thickness so keep checking ice thickness on your way out.

      WARNING a buddy was on  MELISSA and was aiming towards the crappie hole in the NE Corner/First break to fish out there last night.  He was checking ice and was having 10" of ice then hit 3"!  Please be careful out there.  Needless to say he turned around and went back to the access.

      Best use I can think of for a selfie stick. Great fish.

      I will second what Icehawk said.... some good lakes around you. Briggs chain is close, some very nice fish in that system. I tend to fish fairly shallow(under 10ft) most of the time 6-8 right in or on the edge of the weeds for the gills.

      Looking for some folks in the area. Have you guys ever fished Borden lake near Garrison? I fished Maple lake last week with a lot of small crappie caught.  I let them all go, biggest was 9". Fished few lakes in that area with no luck. Even went to my little honey home with little succes Looking take the GF out tomorrow morning.  Any ideas? Seen someone posted about crappie in Pearl. 
    • HoleHoppingGills
      I was out last Sunday and there was solid 3.5 black ice. It's been s week now so guessing around 6 inches in northeast bay.  All crappie I caught were small besides on 9 incher I let go.
