      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 .

buzzin for bass

Take a look at "North Star Lake Resort", should be able to find their website no problem if you type the name into a search engine. They are located on...you guessed it...North Star Lake near Marcell. Kid/family friendly is what they are all about. Great people and lots of activities for the little ones.

I'll second North Star Resort. We stayed there 6 years in a row when my kid's were young, 3 to 10 years old. Now they are 11 and 14 and they want to go back. The lake has good crappie and decent sunfish at least what I caught. Both kinds of bass are there plus northerns and muskie. The walleye stocking has made it a better walleye fishery than when we were there.

Moose Lake Resort is another great option, excellent walleye and muskie lake, great beach and nice people. They have a website if you google them.

Try Gus' Place on Ball Club too. Reasonable prices, good fishing for pike, walleye and panfish. Gus and Susan will take good care of you and help you out with the fishing.

While all of the resorts listed are great resorts I am a little partial to Lakewood Lodge as well. We are a kid friendly resort on a quiet bay of a great lake. We have a nice sand beach that we do treat for swimmers itch. As a matter of fact we just put an 8" sand blanket on top of the ice that will eventually fall to the bottom to help improve our beach area. We have lots of water toys and a new, big playground. We do offer kids activities throughout the week (prime summer season only) All our cabins also have cable tv in case there are periods where playing outdoors isn't possible. Ok, enough of the sales pitch. All of the resorts listed ARE good family resorts. You should visit all their websites including lakewoodlodge.com and find the resort that best offers what you are looking for, and has availability. If we do not have what you need but would like some assistance in finding a resort that does meet your needs feel free to call us and we will try to help.

      The wife and I were up to L O W  for whole week. Great weather, good fishing and fun time. Was able to fish 7 days split up between Morris point, Long point and the river. For me Long point was the better bite. May have seen a couple members of outdoors Mn on Tuesday out of LP. Let me know if I'm right. Also met member from Wisc. at Morris point( real good guy) Anyway didn't seem to matter much what color jig caught them on every color with frozen shiner. Some days were better then others but always caught fish. Ate several meals of fish and brought fish home. Also caught a 14 in perch that I brought into taxidermist. Plan on going back at least one more time this fall . ( Too good not to).

      Got some grouse and saw some nice coveys. The biggest was 6 birds but found couple groups of 5. That is always fun.

      we mainly jigged fatheads in front of their mouths. 2 weeks ago also and tried a few different times over 3 days this trip. water is still crazy low so I don't think many boats will be using access. Also tried a couple different plastics and some gulp. Probably ready to go crazy up there soon.  Last year at this time it was really good. Might get there once more before ice time but not sure.

      Been thinking about breaking out the Jiggin Raps, might have to give that a shot. It's been too crowded out there this weekend with MEA going on.

      Sounds good! May an oversized deer with obscenely large antlers find its way to you!

      Well the weather was pretty crappy but the fish were biting...Had to sort through but kept some for dinner. Caught a variety today, eyes,jumbos,crappie and a few smallies... rigging on or next to rocks worked best for us.

      hummm, hadn't heard a thing?
    • ANYFISH2
      Good luck. Maybe we will see you Friday. I will let you know how things are looking by us as the weekend goes by.
