      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 will be coming down next week to fish and just wanted to know what boat I will want to be in. Do you have to slide across any ice or not. I grew up down there my folks live just above the dam but dad doesn't get out much unless I kick the easy chair. I need to rely on all you good FMers. cool.gif

See last post under Wabasha dam. The river side part of the dock is wide open and the inland one should also be open by this weekend.

He and I are neighbors up on Vermilion. I just talked to him by phone last night from his place in Florida. I recognized your Beeonkey moniker from his sign in our driveway. Great family, they make summer at the lake just that much more fun. If you are coming down sometime in the off season and need someone to go down to the river, give me a call. By the way, guys our age don't like it much when our smartass kids come home and kick our easy chairs!!!!

Which side east or west by George's place? I didn't make it to Vermillion last summer to see them, and I only live in Hermantown. We spent too much time in Namakan. I love Vermillion smile.gif

I'm between George and Chuck, it's Larson's old place. We had an island up on Sand Point. When they made the park, they confiscated it by eminent domain with a 25 year lease. About 10 years ago we realized that we needed to plan for a replacement and we lucked into Larson's place. I never thought I could love anything as much as that island but Vermilion is as good as it gets. Maybe we'll run into each other up there some time.....

I'm the one that Chuck asked if he could park a RV at your place. My dad almost bought that place ya know. I can still remember the days with Larson's boy's running the 6 horses on little fishing boats out and around the little island out front of your place. That was only about 1970-71 it's just like yesterday. The old diving doard off uncle Danny's dock. Man memories..... smirk.gif

I am heading south to see my dad and fish the old river. I guess my dad went over and looked at the landing and its good. The gates are opening and water clouding up a bit, it should be good.

If you had a place on Sandpoint you can give me some good hot spots for up there. We have been fishing Namakan hard by hammer bay alot and done well all late summer. I know there are more spots to fish than there.

We'll have to talk when it gets closer. I'll give Chuck a map with some areas marked on it. We mainly fished for walleyes in the east end of Namakan and upper Sand Point. It's a great fishery and the slot limit just made it better. Small mouth fishing is good all over the system too....

      Thanks snowfighter. Coming up Dec 9 weekend.my brother took some fish outta little turtle the weekend of Oct 7 th. Sounds like from your end of the lake. Seen pics, some decent pike.

      With 2 trout stamps you can keep double your limit. You heard it here first on the interwebs!  Me and Mr Williams will swing by and say Hi this winter in Ely.   That is, if we can get around your sled!!  Happy Thanksgiving!

      don't  give them any ideas!

       There is probably not going to be much ice to speak of  if the forecast holds true. They are talking 50s on Friday, Sunday and Monday. Any ice we did have will most likely be gone, unfortunately.
    • snowfighter
      Haven't been out looking but things have been froze up for awhile. Heard there was some out on Bowstring last week.

      Wife you dummy  I know the problem first hand !!
    • MJ1657
      It's that time of year. Cone on up and see if you can claim the Nord Lord. Spearing in the Third River Flowage in Winnie. Pizza party Friday night in the lodge potluck in the ice Saturday at noon.   Any questions hollar.

      Saw something interesting on forest lake this morning...lake was completely locked up, yet someone had launched their boat and was trudging through the ice! That’s dedication! Anyone have any ice updates to report?

      2 Trout stamps.  Did I miss something and need to go back and get another?
    • Wanderer
      The 200 foot rule gets me a little but it has to be defined somehow what is occupied and what isn’t.   So for a wheelhouse we get to buy tabs to have on the road and a sticker to have it on the ice and go away for a little while.  Seems pretty close to double taxation since any LE can find out who the owner is from the current plate. Plus the spear shack that I might want to keep up over the weekend.  2 tags plus license. Combination sports license 2 trout stamps Waterfowl stamps Pheasant stamp  Turkey license (stamp now included) Deer license for all seasons   The bucket is getting heavy with all the drops in it.
