      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 .

Smelting and moose sheds

Recommended Posts

I was wandering if anybody has smelted up in the Eagles Nest chain of lakes and if so where to go.

Also wandering were to start looking for moose sheds in Brimson or Isabella. What kind of terrain to look for.

When snow gets deep and deer start to limit their movement they tend to hold in wintering areas. Normally thats where I'd look. With the lack of snow this winter the deer didn't really yard up till later after the snow came. The shedding started before that so I'd think that those sheds could be anywhere. Still I'd try southern facing slopes, trails in and out of feeding areas and winter yards.

Hi thewalleye. Smelters net in the culvert between lakes 2 & 3. I think you gotta hit em right on time though. I often see people there for a short time then pack up to try Burntside or their other spots. The smelters version of hole hopping... Good luck I hope you get lots out of there & report back if anything happens!

Not all smelt will run up rivers, in fact more probably spawn on shorelines the in rivers.

I think if you found a sand or gravel shoreline and seined it in the evening you'd get all the smelt you'd need.

That shoreline would need to be one that receives wave action. Something adjacent to deep water but have a gradual taper.

Thanx for the info. Thats how we smelt up in Grand Rapids. But still wondering what kind terrain to look for to find a moose shed.

Hmmm, I thought you said deer sheds, disregard that earlier post.

Moose are built for snow so they don't yard and I don't believe their matabilisum(sp?) slows down like deer, so I'd be looking around their food source, clear cuts.
