      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.

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.

      Fish Lake Baits in Harris had some nice large leeches a couple of weeks ago. Cliff

      After 4 days on a Rainy lake houseboat we managed a walleye fry 3 nights. They where on the deeper mid lake reefs which is no secret, but they wanted minnows. That was the hard part, finding bigger minnows. To my surprise I was able to land a few each afternoon on 5" plastic rigged. 2 boats, 6 people, 47 eyes where clicked biggest 24", smallest 6" and every stop in between. We did fish some bays and the pike were willing to play!city

      The OP was given the system by someone else who was having problems with it. @TNFL If the above statement is correct, try it on your system and see if the fuse blows.  The problem may have been on the other person's rig.   Is it worth contacting the manufacturer for tech help or sending in for testing/service?
    • Wheres_Walter
      Sunday and Monday we caught lots of 15-16" fish at 12-14 FOW.  All on Chartruese jigs with half a crawler.   A couple in the high teens and one 21" as well.  
    • Wanderer
      Leeches are somewhat seasonal and not as prevalent later in the open water season (now).  It's the nature of the bait. Vados would be my first call between the Cities and Mille Lacs but you could always try calling a few shops on the southern side of the lake.

      Back in the old days..... before I retired and we used to come up labor day, I used to fish steep breaks into deep water.  My favorite spot was the north/west tip of Schmidts Island.   There is a little flat than breaks into like 40 feet out in front, more or less, of the dock that goes with the little chalet style cabin.   There are probably other spots along that headolakes shore of the island that are good, so check it out with modern electronics.   I don't know if that area is still working or not.   Jigging raps might work there.  I used a rig with a pretty heavy sinker so I could tip toe over the rocks up and down the break.   Caught what was my PB walleye for a long time on that spot.   Neighbor got a 30 incher somewhere along there.  This is all historical, so maybe not much help anymore.  BTW I typically fished there in the evening.   Never really tried it during the day. 
    • SkunkedAgain
      Jeez no. I can barely remember the netting discussion, let alone which side that I was arguing! Yup, you can see us cruising past quite often probably intent on satisfying the little one's quest for some ice cream at Moosebirds. She loves Sue and Ron. I'll definitely wave or stop by if I see you. I'll be up the next two weekends.
    • Wakemup
      How do you guys like to fish the west end as we transition into September and early fall? My next planned time at the cabin will be Labor day, I'm sure it'll be plenty busy on the lake but hoping to find a few quiet spots in the mornings and evenings to do some walleye fishing.
