      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 .

Who's the Jerk?!

Recommended Posts

Royal Dutchman

Who's the jerk that ripped on Gail for not having the river open?!

The ignorance of some people just leaves me shaking my head. The one person that's doing the most to keep us all informed, and she get's crap about controling a natural phenomenon? The freakin' weatherman can't get it right more than 24 hrs. ahead and we're supposed to tell you 2 or 3 weeks ahead to the day? Get real.

Probably one of the same guys that call us demanding to know what day it will be open and what day would be the best fishing and if we would guarantee him fish. If your looking for a guarantee of fish it tells me that you are used to not catching fish and are probably the guy raving at the ramp about "no fish in this #$%#&@*! river" when I've just hit 100 fish in 4 or 5 hours.

We always say that the A-hole factor is about 1 in 1000 with our fisherman customers, and that is so much better than any other business I know, but this guy gets the Golden A-hole Award from me!

Tell Gail you're sorry for being stupid and maybe the River Gods will smile on you again. Otherwise I hope someone pours gas on your bait and your boat springs a leak.

To end on a positive note, this all say it together:

THANK YOU GAIL!

Gail:

I hope the jerk doens't make you think we are all that way. I for one think you're special and appreciate what you have done for me and the boyz when we come up there fishing (note fishing not catching) even if our tape measures are a little off. So Gail THANK YOU for the wonderful job you do for us cit-idiots and your hospitality.

Gail and Doug are great on the way they pass on information to us less fortunate, the reason I fish is to get away from the real world, its sad some dumb a$$ cant get that. So Clementson and R/D keep up the good work, your second to none to me and I've never even stayed at either of your locations cool.giflaugh.gifcool.gif

All the effort Gail, dutchman have done to keep us informed is greatly appreciated by many. Far more people rely on the info than we could know. Gail I will be seeing you tomorow night.

It would be very hard to plan a trip without local reports.I know I am very grateful.

There are many options for those who just can't wait. My group will be starting our trip tomorrow. Boats loaded with ice gear. Looks like we will be putting in at Pelland or fishing down river on the ice. Maybe even a trip up to the lake is in order.

I would also like to thank Gail, Doug, and Marilyn for all their effort as well as their continued pleasant personalities. It seems its hard to find that as much anymore and customer service like that keeps people coming back. Don't think it goes unnoticed...

I can't belive that someone would give them a hard time. They don't have to keep everyone informed on the condition of the river, but they do and should be thanked.

Agreed, without the Royal Dutchman and Clementson's reports we'd all be driving up checking on a daily basis. Granted it's only 2 hours for me... wink.gif

Yeah Northlander, I too am wondering where my call was. I just spoke to BDR two weeks ago and he stated he wasn't coming up this year... He's trying to go incognito... grin.gif

Thanks again Gail, the reports are great, don't let the overly anxious one's spoil the excitement!!

Hey thanks guys, it sure makes the trips worth it. The last couple weeks our lives got turned upside down and Doug has been great with you guys on this site, a BIG thanks to you! I couldn't ask for a better neighbor!

Art checked river today and tonight we got a call from a friend that just back from Birchdale area and told us the open water has reached Manitou! I'll be posting more pics tomorrow and course checking again! It's getting exciting now!

Thanks again & Take Care

The updates and postings are more then helpfull to a true outdoors person. These bad apples (to say) are the reason be it hunting, guns in general, fishing, and almost everything outdoor are giving outdoor enthusis such a bad rep. Its a wonder why funding and children are struggling to get into these wonderful activites.

If anybody wants to be guarnteed perfect conditions and fish jumping into the boat would be better off buying them at the store and leave the unperdictable fishing to the sportsman. You guys on the border are doing a great job-Thanks.

      I fished shakopee lake in onamia on monday it had ten inches of good ice. Lots of air bubbles but seemed solid. I would guess most lakes in the area have enough to at least walk on but u can never trust ice so be carfull bring spud bar and ice picks and a friend just in case

      Thanks for the shout out Moose.  I have plans to go out this weekend but to another lake.  I’ll ask if the other party wants to stick to those plans or head east instead.
    • Wanderer
      Yep, that’s what I’ve heard.  I’ve used loose powder quite a bit before.  My first ML was Hawken kit gun in 50 cal.  True black powder in an actual powder horn.  Patch and ball.   The only thing I didn’t like about ML season back then is I couldn’t wear the traditional clothes too!

      Lots of fresh ice out there. With the snow we have gotten the last few days you won’t be able to see the difference between the older and newer ice so don’t forget to check. There were open water spots on most lakes 2 days ago that are now covered. CHECK for your self.  Also lots of trash already on a lake I was on, slobs, throw it in your own car if you don’t mind looking at it.

      If he is going to fish them from a kayak I would suggest getting him a boga grip that way he can get it out of the water

      Thanks for arranging this MM.  Wish I could make it.  I'm sure it'll be a great time!

      I heard of a ranger/ice castle out from the Pelican access last weekend.  Any truth to that?  Some people have no fear.

      You will like the Blackhorn powder as long as you are used to using loose powder and not pellets. It burns much cleaner making reloads much easier. I clean my muzzleloader the same way as all my other guns now. Just remember that you don't have to use as many grains of powder with the 209. The max recommended is 120 grains. I shot 100 grains of pyrodex but dropped to 90 with the 209.
