      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 .

Just wondering if anyone knows if Butch and Nev's resort on Geneva has a website? I have looked here on the internet but with no luck. I tried calling several times but there was no answer. Anyone know if they are still open?

I doubt that they have a web site. In fact, I don't know if they are still operating as a resort. I know that they are trying to sell the property. Hoping to entice someone who wants to tear it all down and build a few townhomes, from what I understand.

Lots of other resorts in the area, though!

Thanks Woodland,

I know there are a ton of resorts in the area, however I used to go there with my mom and dad as a kid every year. As I got older I stopped going up there with them cuz (God forgive me crazy.gif) I wasn't a big fisherman at the time.

Now that I got hitched I was hoping to get back up there with the new wife.

Hey Hermy,

I think Butch and Nevs is like a lot of the older resorts that found themselves in a situation where they had some cabins that were in deserate need of updating, on land that was worth more as a piece of real estate, than they could ever make operating as a resort with old cabins. So they are trying to cash in.

We hear the story each summer, people that have great childhood memories of vacationing at resorts, that are now townhomes, associations or "private compounds". They are now starting the same traditions with thier own families, after realizing how valuable a week at the lake can be.

Make sure you do your "homework", when looking for a place to stay!

Good Luck!

Steve

Hermy, why don't you take a look at Woodland resort on Miltona. They are FM sponcors and Miltona is a great muti-species lake.

Hey Woodland,

I see a lot of people talking about your resort on Miltona. My parents just bought a place on Miltona and I'm kinda new to the area, but I was wondering exactly where your resort is? Thanks. By the way, we were out there on Sunday - Tuesday and fishing was pretty good.

KK,

Woodland is on the east side of Miltona, about 1/2 mile north of the golf course. We have the tan colored units.

Where is your parents place? Miltona can be such a fun lake to fish, and the water is super clean. Its nice to let the kids play at the beach or drag them through the water on a tube and not have to worry about swimmers itch, alge, etc.

By the way, fishing was good last weekend, for you? Mostly targeting walleye, or did you find the slabs?

Stop by and say hi sometime!

My parents place is in the Sandy Beach area on East Sandy Beach. We targeted the slabs in the morning and afternoon and then Walleyes during the twilight time. Are the crappies just starting to move in or are they on the way out?

      I am headed to MN for my annual trip and wanted to target pike on leech. For the past 5-6 years I have been kayaking smaller lakes around the area but now I am back to having a decent boat for bigger waters. Used to fish the east side flats in Headquarters and Boy bay prior to my kayak days. Usual came earlier in the year as well. Bucktails on weedlines still my best bet or do you think crankbaits are the way to go just off weedlines? Better spots than others? Should be there a few days before / after Labor Day.

        I believe the  problem here is a hull with rocker.   At different trim and speed the hull does just that, rocks.   Normally you'd trim in, throttle up and once on plane, throttle back to cruise speed and adjust the trim out.    To be trimmed all in at WOT or even cruising speed would make must hulls plow water at the bow.   In the case with rocker you usually find the porpoise stops when you increase speed.   The fin might be enough to lift the transom up and stabilize it.   Let us know what you do and how it works.

      Went and tried a new spot... 3 snacky cats. One of them took my rod straight into the river and I had to dive in after it. Good times.

      I use the Daiwa ct r also have 2 of them best out there in my opinion.
    • FishinCT
      Pretty good for me from Monday through Wednesday. Found them from 14-24ft depending on the spot but most fish came from under 20ft. Trust the electronics and motor around til you find a good school. They are hitting pretty well when you find them

      Best wishes for a happy retirement Ace.   I could never have done the guide thing even if I were a good enough fisherman.   It takes a special type of person to deal with all the different people... Congratulations on a job well done.

      Terry, Sorry to hear that you have to retire after all of these years! I suppose It will be my turn to join you and Tommy before to many years also. See you on the water!! Cliff

      Congratulations on job well done sir. Your deserve time for yerself with Sandra an the whole younger crew. You have always been nice to me an a big help when I first seriously did the Muskie fish guide deal back summer 1996. We have had some fun times laughing online an in each other's boat over the years. Even boated a fish or three an coined a few major phrases still used in today's ever so silly online Muskie fish market.  Good stuff that I think only you n I could muster up and never take any of it seriously. Truely makes me smile clear to my middle all the junk we talked about an did. You are a good man Terry and welcome in my boat any time. Anytime. Ya done good and will not soon be forgotten. Thanks for being my friend on or off the water. The name fits as you really have been "The Ace"on our sweet Vermilion.   Still no fish round my docks but Bonnie, Polar Bear Boy an myself always have enjoyed your company. Yer the best in many ways my friend.  Thanks. Keep on Rocken!   Tommy.       PS.    I will continue to keep the Zombie Horde in check.    ; )
