      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 .

Paul will be running the resort and I (The Cranker) will be running the Park Model Business along with helping out at the resort and marketing both business's.

They are unbelievable! Everyone should check these Park Model RV Cabins that are four seasoned! I know you will be suprised at what the Appeldoorn's and The Cranker" are offering.

I also want to invite all of you that haven't seen Appeldoorn's Sunset Bay Resort to come on up and really see what this fine resort has to offer. I feel the Appeldoorn's Resort is unlike all the other resorts on Mille Lacs. Thats why I took this position. Appeldoorn's Sunset Bay Resort is truely your family/corperate oriented fishing resort with very nice facilities! Can you tell that I am excited! Says Paul.

I personally am excited about Paul coming on board. With his experience and enthusiasm its going to be alot of fun for us and above all for you!

The Cranker & Paul -- WOW!!!!!

Paul, Congratulations!!!!!!!!!!!

I have never met Paul, just numerous e-mails to him on getting me set up for Fall Crankbait trolling, and trying to get together for a day on the water this year.I spoke to him on the phone in the Fall. Thanks for all your help Paul!!! All I can say is that I'm very impressed with him. He is always willing to share his knowledge to everyone !!!!! He took time to e-mail me when I was first new to this web site. Made me feel welcome.

Cranker, I'm looking forward to meeting you this year. After reading all the positive and good words about you in the Winter forums, you and Paul seem to be the perfect team!!!!

Appeldoorn's must now be #1 on Mille Lacs with everything they have done this year!!!!!

Please keep me posted on the September Tournament.

Congrats to you Paul, you have a job I'd love to have! Cranker, man you guys just keep it going like that battery bunny in the commercial except instead of going and going....it is better and better and.........! I look foreward to getting up there again and maybe fishing this summer a bit and quite possibly the fall tourney as well! I don't typically fish it in the summers as much as the fall months so maybe I'll have a bit of a chance agaist the FM pros out there. If not, I know I'd have a great time! Again, Congrats to you Paul and keep up the good work Cranker!

I would also like to thank the Appeldoorn's for giving me the opportunity to build Appeldoorn's Sunset Bay Resort into one of the premier Family and Fishing Resorts on the Lake.

I look forward to meeting many of you in the upcoming months.

TR,

Funny you should mention that.... but both Cranker and I spent the day on the beach working on our short game. He never did manage to get up and down.

On a serious note, we are working on a few play and stay packages that will feature golf and fishing.

      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.

      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.
    • leech~~
      Plus+1  The size seems to drop off late in the year. Last year bait shops I went to were selling Large as Jumbos and small as large!
    • RuddyDuck
      Reminder, meeting tonight at 7:00pm in Annandale and written comment period runs til August 28th. The email addresses for comment are on pages 18-19. Comment now or the days of fishing your favorite lake anytime you want, will be over! I’m sure this is coming to a county near you if this goes thru out here.
    • gimruis
      Not uncommon at all for this time of year.  I used to try and find some regularly around Labor Day and always ran into problems.  I think its just the nature of the bait business.
    • BringAnExtension
      Does anyone know where I can get some jumbo leeches between the Twin Cities and Mille Lacs?  I would even settle for large.  There seems to be a shortage of supply. Thanks!
    • proguide
      Our prayers were answered from the south with some river flow. For now the river is back to easier and safer boating so we can get around.
        The catfishing has held steady, same as the past two weeks. The fish have moved to the shallow off current sides of the river since the nights have recently become cooler.  Sits have become longer to 25-35 minutes per spot to allow the fish to find the bait.  Mid-Day don't be afraid to find some current or move back to the middle to see if the fish have moved out to feed.
        Bait has been frozen suckers and frogs.  All other baits just don't seem to have the same effectiveness.
        We are entering into some transitions to fall and things will be changing over the next week or two.  The new flow should get the fish moving a bit more and that fall feed should ramp up over the next couple weeks.

      Also check for water in the fuel filter. At higher rpms water droplets travel to carbs and causes poor combustion. Happened to me some years ago. Had to drain water out of tank.
    • CigarGuy
      Skunked, It was nice meeting you.  I've seen you,  your wife and little one a few times, but you never waved-thought you might be mad at me after we had a little debate on netting.  Sounds like were good!  Stop by if you see me on the dock.  That was my wife and sister in-law assembling the bench. That pinch area on the river is tight and some folks tend to fly right thru.  Also, people fishing on that dock in the pinch down area in the spring, don't like to reel in their bobber when you try to navigate through the boats in the spring.  I used the fish the St Louis River a lot and fellow fisherman were terrible flying by you.  I too follow the no-wake policy when going through tight areas.
