      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 .

Who will plow to the flats??

Recommended Posts

blackjackdavey10

As i sit here in Finlayson watching the snow pile up by the feet i wonder if i will see another batch of jumbo perch? I love the late bite on the mud but with this dump will any resort expend the energy and time to plow to the flats? Liberty used to be really on it but i don't know about this year any updates this week would be awsome I'd pay 20$ for another trip out for Jumbos....

I would think that if you could pull a house or if it was nice out, you could get by with a quad or a sled to get out there. Just my thought, that's what I would do. Then you could get to wherever you want. I would think that with all the snow a sled would probably be a bit better than a quad though. Just for sake of possibly getting stuck in a two foot drift three miles from shore! smirk.gif

i had a bunch of minneapolis firemen up monday and tuesday, and george plowed over 20 miles of road over the 2 days. you could get around real good with a 2 wheel drive van. i am sure that he will at least open up what he plowed monday and tuesday.................tom fellegy

Tom is correct.

Just got off the phone with George at Nitti's Hunters Point and he is going to be plowing roads out to 3 mile only at this time.

The winds are pretty steady and the snow is drifting pretty bad. We have around 18 inches of snow and its very light and drifting everywhere. George told me that until the winds die down he will not be plowing roads until the winds die down.

There is around 30 plus inches of new snow on the lake and drifting all over. Bring your snowmobile if you want to get around. Four Wheelers will not cut it off the roads! We are not plowing any roads and I spoke with Kevin this morning and Mac's is not plowing any roads either. I called Fishers Resort this morning and their road is closed also.

I haven't heard of any fishing reports as of today. Everyone has been crambling just to get the fish houses off the lake.

Bring your snowmobiles up and enjoy some trail riding and a little perch fishing. All the trails are freshly groomed and look like a ton of fun! I know thats what I ma going to do this weekend.

Fish On!!!

Was out yesterday from hunters...he has plowed paths to several area's. The only problem I would see in a car is trying to find somewhere to pull off the roads. The roads are plowed 1 1/2 lanes...not the typical highways. You would have to find a safe spot to pull over on the snow so other vehicles could get around you. I would just bring a shovel...

      Where's the best place to get bait at Vermillion?? Is Hoodoo the best access to fish big bay? The girlfriend and I are going to come up for a day trip tomorrow...Thanks for any help.

      I believe that there is a campsite or picnic area in the bay just South of the S-Curve  located adjacent to the WMA, I believe that Green Herons and Blue Herons nest in the trees there! Cliff

      Hope everyone had a great summer season of fishing and otherwise, and here's to hoping the fall season is going well.  I'm planning to get some grouse hunting in while up in a couple weeks and noticed Pine Island has a WMA on it.  Figured if I had time, I can take a quick ride out to there and have fun walking around on an island WMA.  Does anyone have any input on difficulty of beaching a boat somewhere along the shoreline on the north or south side, if even possible?   Thanks for the help and advice this year from everyone I talked to on here.  Looking like I may miss out on hard water this year and will have to put cracking that nut off until next year.

      Northwestern and central Minnesota have elevated fire danger due to sparse rain, high winds and lack of humidity. This means that open burning may be restricted in certain counties. The Department of Natural Resources urges Minnesotans to use caution while burning yard waste or leaf piles outdoors and to check the burning permit website for information.  “During fall, we know that residents and property owners will be taking care of leaf and brush piles,” said Casey McCoy, DNR wildfire prevention supervisor. “Piles can smolder undetected for several weeks under the right conditions. Windy, fall days can reignite these piles.” On average, Minnesota issues approximately 43,250 burn permits annually. When weather conditions warrant it, state fire team leaders may turn burning permits on or off. To determine whether burning is allowed, Minnesotans should regularly check their county burning restrictions. Residents may need to find alternatives to burning such as composting or hauling brush to a collection site or wait until it is safer to burn. “If you do decide to burn yard waste or leaf piles, do so when there is less wind,” said Linda Gormanson, burning permit coordinator. “Instead of burning your yard waste and potentially causing a wildfire, compost or chip your yard waste or bring it to a collection site.” Burning restrictions do not apply to campfires; they are still allowed. Clear an area around the campfire, watch it continuously and make sure it is out cold to the touch before leaving. Fire danger can change quickly. Check the Minnesota Incident Command System site https://goo.gl/W686km for fire behavior conditions. For questions about burning restrictions, check the DNR page at mndnr.gov/burnrestrictions or call your local Forestry office. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Lots of boats on the river daily here in LF now.  Select people are hitting good pods of fish and catching well.  Flows, though still Very swift, are slowing.  Fish are becoming a little more scattered, more fish are being caught away from shore and away from prominate structure. Minnows and tubes pulling most fish.  A few nice fish here and there most are falling in the 15-17 inch range. Good luck out there.

      Rivers are so under fished in this state.  People seem to gravitate towards lakes all the time and avoid rivers but the reality is that rivers, large and small, have awesome fishing.
