      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 .

Mark this one down in the calender!

We still have room for more members that would like to sell their Sporting Goods/Outdoor gear. No baby clothes, no kids clothes, no household goods. Only Outdoor Gear!

Grand Superior Lodge is supplying brauts and hamburgers(thank you Cheffery) and will be cooked and served by our Cub Scout Pack 107 along with chips and pop.

What we clear over the cost of renting the hall will be split up between the Cub Scout Pack and a future FM Get Together prize fund!

Those that would like to have a spot to SELL email me frankbdeluca@yahoo.com with your forum name and phone number before we're all filled up. Cost to sell is $5.00

Beautiful job on the flyer. Wish this was a little closer to my home with all the fishing stuff I've got to sell. 466 miles is just a tad to far for me to drive. Sounds like this is going to be very successful. Good luck to all.

Thanks guys,

We have around 10 members signed up so far. I'd like to get the hall packed with stuff and overflowing into the parking lot with big items. So if you have stuff to sell get that email out to me.

hawgeye, you can leave your stuff with me.

Twig is on hwy 53.

6 miles north of Pike lake or approximately 16 miles north of Duluth. Gas station is on the right, Town Hall is on the left. Don't blink or you'll miss both.

ST you made a slight mistake, I think it's 5-6 miles north of Pike lake (fishermans corner) on hwy. 53. I know for a fact that it's not 53.6

-- never mind I saw the period and thought it was a decimal point, sorry ---

There is actually a surcharge of 17.5% for FM members since I have to make up for sponsoring cost, but it can go down a point or two depends on sales.

Juuuuuuuuust kidding of course, bring a copy of thread (not the whole thing, just first page) ad and you'll get a 10% discount on anything.

I am sorry I don't have a canvas for a Starcraft but I do have the boat if interested...... grin.gif

Sorry to be fair doors open at 8AM. I would get there then!

This Swap Meet is something new to the site, we learn as we go. I'd like to keep requests for items or the inventory off the forum. Just show up and you might find that special thing your looking. If not then I'm sure there will something else you'll want to go home with.

Getting closer. Those who plan on selling bring a table if you can. Sounds like we may need some more.

Im still trying to get the boat out of the garage so I can get to some stuff to get rid of.

Cheffrey when ya get back holler at me about the grub. Got a few questions.

We're filling up. laugh.gif Once we do we'll start selling in the parking lot. So we still might have room inside but can't guaranty it. If you have a table or trailer to sell from bring it.

Whats wrong with Easter weekend? It just happened that the hall was available this weekend. No matter what weekend we chose there would be someone who didnt like it. Its not like its on Easter Sunday or anything.

I understand some people may be out of town.

This will more than likely become a anual deal and we will try to get the hall for another weekend if possible.

I think Easter Saturday is great, lots of people will be in town as well so it should be a good turnout. Northlander, with Cheffery in Mexico do we have any idea how much food we would like? That way I can get an idea.

      I would avoid them if I were you.  All season.  There's often at least some current flowing through there and with these warmer winters, its just a bad idea.
    • gimruis
      If your getting some pretty close shooting (and gauging by your photos you are in those setups), you might want to use an IC (improved cylinder) choke instead.  Spread that pattern out a little more and switch to some smaller shot size with more velocity, especially if you're mostly just shooting as small ducks like woodies. I almost exclusively use an IC until the calendar turns November, for ducks, pheasants, and grouse.  Later on when you get more shooting at bigger, smarter birds that are on the edge of range you could go back to a modified.

      Hello from the NW Angle!   Water temps are hovering around 48 degrees and fall fishing is phenomenal! Walleyes are biting anywhere from 14 to 30ft with jigging being the most effective method. Crappies are continuing to bite around sunken trees and deep holes with a good amount of perch mixed in. Anglers have had success trolling for large pike and muskies with jigging also bringing some to the boat.    We are getting fish houses ready for the 2017-18 ice fishing season and are very excited for hard water!   We recommending checking availability for winter ASAP!   Sunset Lodge

      Thank you for the responses everyone. You are correct Del I do not have the Fiber option.  We do use the Hot spot from AT&T at times but to be honest the Data does not last all that long, Even though we are right by Moccasin point & the tower is at the end of Frazer our signal is not the best at times.  We could also do DSL but according to one neighbor we may be faster sending up carrier pigeons & waiting for a response.

      It's been a 1/32 oz. unpainted jig head & a small split shot along with a crappie minnow for me most of the time. Still barely see the rod tip load or wiggle a little on the bite. Even tougher with the wind lately & 20' or more down.

      Any channel on any lake is dangerous.

      We are done as of Saturday as well. Was fishing in 35 feet in Smarts Friday and had a monster, monster fish on. Thought I was snagged for a few minutes, but then felt the wiggling. Fought if for probably five - ten minutes (drag flying out) and then up came an eight inch walleye. Never saw the monster, but guessing it was massive fish, perhaps a muskie? Anyone else ever have this happen?

      Hey I am planning on ice fishing on Lake Minnetonka this winter with a friend and I am using a snowmobile to get to the lake from the trails. I would enter onto the lake in Orono off the Luce line trail and end up in Stubbs bay. I was reading on other forums saying avoid the channels but it seems to be the only way to get around the lake to other bays especially since I am on a snowmobile. I was wondering if they eventually are safe enough to hold up a snowmobile in mid-late January, and if going through them faster helps possibly? I would like to fish around the Smith's bay area and the only way I can do that is going through channels. I know Lake Minnetonka can be sketchy with ice thickness and I don't want to end up through the ice, thoughts? Thanks.   Jim

      The DSL service is great since they ran the fiber down 24 a few years ago.   I was presuming that the poster didn't have that option if they were considering satellite.     AccessMN is another possibility if they are still around.
