      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 .

Same great building, with the same great view.

WALKER, MN__ History has come to life at Trapper’s Landing Lodge on Leech Lake. The historic log building recently known as Margarita Mulligan’s Restaurant is being reopened to the public May 10 as the Beachfire Bar & Grille.

The building, the only remaining original structure of the former Merit Lodge was built in 1921 as one of the first resorts on the lake. Today, under the management of Trapper’s Landing Lodge, the restaurant will feature upscale casual dining in a relaxed lakeside environment.

Executive Chef Craig Current will feature a menu of homemade cuisine including fish, steaks, pasta, signature dishes and a sandwich lunch menu. The restaurant will be open from May 10 to mid-June, Thursdays through Sundays, with a brunch-only menu served on Sunday. From mid-June through mid-August they will serve breakfast, lunch and dinner seven days a week. They will be open for seasonal hours into the autumn.

As part of Trapper’s Landing Lodge, the restaurant serves both resort guests and the public. Patrons may boat in and tie up at the dock and boat-side “to go” orders will soon be available. There is also an outdoor dining patio overlooking the lake and outdoor live entertainment will be featured. Saturday nights the bar & grille will host karaoke.

Trapper’s Landing Lodge is owned and operated by Odyssey Development of Duluth, MN and offers fractional townhouse ownership and resort vacation rentals. The resort is located on the south shore of Leech Lake, just nine miles east of the junction of Hwy. 200 and 371. For more information, please contact Trapper’s Landing Lodge at 218-836-2455 or visit www.trapperslandinglodge.com

Does it have the same dock system as before? There are some of us from Marinemax marina that have cruisers who occasionally like to come over for a bite to eat and a cocktail, but the dock isn't real condusive to a cruiser. So just wondering if it is the same one.

Puddleduck, we have made some minor improvements to the dock along with lowering to water level. There will be more bumbers along the rails as well as cleats.

We plan on fully replacing it for next year.

Should it not suffice when you arrive, feel free to go in the marina and take an availble spot. We can accomodate up to a 36 footer, at least that was the biggest I saw in there last year.

      I have a few spots that I check but if you just go slow and keep your eye on the depth finder the schools of fish are scattered everywhere.  If you see fish, you will catch em

      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?

      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.

      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.
