      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 .

is this the story about the ray's boat dock debacle??? or is the a different story??? if it is about ray's, that property is on the north end of the lake. the story should be on thursday evening on ch 9. ch 5 is supposed to be up here today doing a similar story. there is a very long posting on the mille lacs forum on another web site if anybody hasn't seen any info on this ordeal and wants to read up on it before the news story airs. there is a story in the mille lacs messenger about the dnr looking into buying the scenic bay resort in isle. they are asking $840,000 for that property. i think that amount of money would fix up a few of the existing accesses that are in need of repair/dredging.............tom fellegy

Tom,

You are right, 9pm on the Channel 9 news there will be a story on the Boat landing. It's worth the time so we can see where our tax dollars and license dollars are going.

Thanks!

Gregg Maloney

If it's about the east side then it will about the liberty beach public access. Liberty beach was sold about two years ago and when the owners sold the sold the harbor to the dnr.

from my understanding the story will focus on the Poor choice in the liberty beach access, i guess it is shallow and unprotected. i have only seen it in the winter so i don;t really know how poor of a site it is. but i totally agree with the idea of fixing up the ones they have. heck wealthwood is basically worthless, why not make a channel, and malmo isn't much better, and the casino access has more huge potholes than any access around. confused.gif

I know first hand about the Casino access and potholes. We turned of the highway and were going toward the landing and the boat trailer hit a pothole. It sent that sucker(1750 fish Hawk) a good foot in the air came crashign down and broke the wheel cover right of the trailer.

SO yea I think they should improve alot of the access. The access in Isle will be useless by mid-summer if they don't start dredging it

Launching a boat at the "casino" access is easy, that's if the tiny harbor isn't full of boats. The big problem there is even in a normal water year it's a max of 3 feet deep for 100 yards into the lake. The access by McQuoid's will be real shallow this year too. Then there's the Big Point access where if there's a 2 mph west breeze it slames your boat into the dock or trailer.

DNR Trails and Waterways really needs to build harbors on Mille Lacs so people can safely load and unload boats.

How is the casino access? Is the low water level going to ding some props going out that 100 yards thru the 3' gauntlet?

Haven't been there in a couple years...but it was shallow then.

Will the bigger deep v's get in and out?

I think Ch.9 did a good job on that story i can't believe they would waste a half milllion on another shallow worthless launch. I got some brief airtime i was the guy holding all the fish in the pics at the beginning of the story. i just wonder what they wil do with that site, i sure hope they dredge a channel. confused.gif

KSTP (5) will have this story tonight.

Does anyone know if the money for this project comes from the general fund? If it does.... more than just us fishing folks should be PO'd.

It's a good thought but terrible planning. I've never fished mille lacs, but i've been on winnie a ton, and it's pretty similar. There's only one access site i know of on winnie (the deer river access) that's always calm, but that launch is plenty deep. I saw the story last night, and couldn't they just solve the problem w/ some dredging?

They could dredge but they would have to go 100 yards into the lake then do it once a month. The wave action will fill in any channel that is dredged.

      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.

      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.

      Yep, done for the year.  Not much for heat or insulation in the cabin.  It's a real, honest to goodness cabin.   So, as of Thursday, adios.  Until next year, etc.
    • CigarGuy
      Del, are you done up here for the year?  Missing the best part of the year!  If you see me on the dock or out on the lake..say hi!  I wouldn't just drop in and introduce myself either-not my style.  Don't have to worry too much about anybody climbing the mountain to do that

      About 69 this morning.... And this concludes my reporting until sometime in 2018, Lord willing. But I will still be watching....
    • delcecchi
      I will add that it is nothing like the old days when throwing a marker was practically life threatening..... But that is west end.   If it wasn't for the musky  guys there would only be like three of us...

      Told my wife I wanted to watch hooker....  she said " you aren't watching any hookers while I'm around"   rim shot.

      The public access on Grand Lake in Stearns County will be temporarily closed Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. for hand removal of starry stonewort. This temporary closure is necessary for the safety of workers and divers.  A relatively light population of the invasive algae was recently confirmed around the Grand Lake public access, following a coordinated starry stonewort search involving 200 trained detectors in 20 counties. DNR invasive species specialists will hand-pull starry stonewort while preserving native aquatic plants. Starry stonewort has never been eradicated from any lake in the United States, but treatment can ease access and recreational use of a lake, while helping to reduce the risk of infestation to other water bodies. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Skunked.  Reruns on late nite so watch Hooker for laughs. Never saw it much in 1983. Shatter is Kirk as Hooker. To fun. He an his three self trained rookies are the answer to everything  the only squad with action an Hooker solves every case by end of show ending with a real dramatic line an stop action shot  acting is really bad but fun. City neeeds Hooker an he an crew kick it into high gear. Real 80's corn. Locklear n James Darren an Adrain Zmed prove trying to act is not hard but acting is. Total fun an totally predictable. Best lure I been use in is a simple black buck tail an a huge ol red n white spoon. Wallys like my raps dragged on a 2oz bottom bouncer an pike for some reason been eating my worms on a floaty. Smaller are a hoot an my Hounds love the action. Speaking of action. I have never seen a show with as much running in it as TJ Hooker. Ol Capt. Kirk is always on the go. "You call it in. I'll get'nm". "I want him bad. Ya hear. BAD".   :  ). I sure miss my pup Moe Rock. Bummer so this is a treat. Keep on rocken!  Fish on. T
